Lillee Jean Patriotic Red White & Blue Makeup Tutorial 2017

With all the negativity in the world, I felt doing a patriotic look would be the best! This look is not vibrant, its more of a toned-down, and dark version of your typical red, white, and blue. Hope you cuties enjoy! Remember, spreading love and forming unity is the American way.

Do be noted, as a disclaimer, ALL products were purchased with my own money, anything stated below is MY opinion, and all photos are raw, with minor touch ups.

Lillee Jean Patriotic Red White & Blue Makeup Tutorial 2017

Time to complete this tutorial: 30 Minutes (professionals/myself)

37 Minutes (beginners/ intermediate)

Shea Moisture – 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Jouer Cosmetics – Luminizing Moisture Tint, Pearl

E.L.F. Concealer Brush

For my base, I applied Shea Moistures Extra Virgin Coconut Oil to make my skin supple, then I moved along to applying Jouer’s Luminizing Moisture Tint in Pearl, scarcely, onto areas needing coverage such as on my forehead, and onto areas I wanted to highlight such as on the sides of my nose, and on my cheekbones! This product is extremely versatile, and long-wearing if used correctly :).

Mac Cosmetics – Eye Shadow Pro Pallet Refill Pan(s)

Brun (brows)

As always I gave myself a light fill in by using Morphe G11 brush, and a bit of Brun eyeshadow by Mac Cosmetics! Stroking the brush from side to side will give the most natural, and defined results.

Morphe Brushes – Individual Pans

Ocean Frost (inner corners); Just White (center lid)

The typical blue you see on the flag is much darker than Ocean Frost, but by the same token this is MY rendition of America. Pride, is pride! With that said, dipping my Mac 231 brush into the pan, I proceeded to softly transferring it onto the inner corners of my lids with firm patting motions. Since this is a foiled shadow, I suggest going in once with your finger to really pack a punch in texture! Taking a bit of Just White, I softly buffed the color onto the center of my lids with side to side short blends by using Morphe’s M433 brush.

Makeup Geek – Eyeshadow Pan

Corrupt (darkening shade); Bitten (red fade shade)

Since half of the eye makeup is completed, let’s work on the other half! Cleaning my Mac 231 brush off on a cleaned paper towel, first to remove the foiled blue color that was used previously, I newly dipped into Bitten, and outlined a negative space cut crease style by flicking my brush out as I would eyeliner, then flicking it inwards hugging the natural fold my eyes make when I look up, all was shaded in once I had my ideal shade. Don’t have any shame if you need to use concealer for clean up! To darken things up, and to really to add definition, I smoked Corrupt not only across my lower lash lines connecting at the exact wing angle my negative space cut crease makes, but on the outer corners of that cut crease to form a fade.

Mac Cosmetics – Creme Liner

Ciate London – Wonderwand Mascara

Huda Beauty – Classic False Eyelashes, Sasha

Finishing up, I very lightly lined my upper lash lines with Mac’s Creme Liner, this was meant to add drama, it should not overpower the shades. I then coated my lashes with Ciate’s Wonderwand mascara, and applied Huda Beauty’s Sasha Falsies! Falsies are optional, but I feel they’ll make your look go from bland, to glam.
