BRATZ Meygan Pink Winter Dream Glittery Mauve Makeup Tutorial 2016 | Lillee Jean
Out of ALL the dolls produced on the market today and in previous years, it’s pretty safe to say the Bratz win when it comes to dramatic and unique makeup styles! From uber smokey eyes paired with luscious red lips, to soft wintery hues topped off with glitter, how can one NOT take such an inspo from these role model figures?
The Bratz in particular owned their OWN magazine company, entrepreneurs, and always expressed themselves through fashion, makeup, and whatever came their way, practically optimists with a relatable personality stuck to each doll, not to mention the fact ALL dolls were of a different ethnicity! Focus less on the looks, and more on the inside moral hidden behind the beauty. Anyhow, aside from that mini Lilz rant, the makeup is VERY easy to complete, and extremely wearable especially for the upcoming Fall months! Hope you love bunnies enjoy, let’s get into it.

Striving ta’ look EXACTLY like a doll is absurd, but to mimic certain factors such as the makeup, fashion style, and overall message at hand with your own twist on it is certainly doable! Being I always begin with skin care, I am here to say, my skin is SUPER dried out right now. I suspect this is due to dehydration from being sick a few days ago! With that being said, rather tugging sensitive and broken skin, I instead applied two light coatings of my BodhiTreeNaturals Coconut Dry Face Cream too all zones of my face ensuring dry patches got evenly coated the most, the last thing I’d need is to amp up coverage because of flakey patches. Whenever my skin is in this scaly state, I work at a fast pace, the only time I sat back and relaxed was when I allowed the moisturizer to sink deep into my pores for around 3 minutes time! Yesterday I told you beauties how much I DREADED Laura Mercier’s Candleglow Soft foundation, as a new reformed person, I am here too say I had the foundation completely WRONG, this just goes to prove sometimes things need a few tries as each is created differently. Though the tiny pump issue stands still, the actual application process changed once I found out you have to WARM the product up first prior too applying, something I generally don’t do, but for this I shall! Anyhoo, before physically blending the foundation out, I took exactly ONE pump of my Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer, and smoothed the formula onto my skin starting from the center of my face massaging out towards my hairline, the more moisture the better in my case. Now, taking exactly three pumps of my Laura Mercier’s Candleglow Soft Foundation in the shade Ivory, I took my ring finger and softly smoothed the product back and forth “warming” the texture up to a creamy liquid like delight! Picking up my Morphe M439, I began buffing the foundation onto my skin with short stippling motions starting from areas needing most coverage to those needing sheerer finishes– as a quick tip, for those with dry patchers stick with cream formulas as well as STIPPLING motions, this’ll glide over and emphasize patches less as opposed to straight liquids and circular blends. I personally prefer VERY disbursed out blush application, so taking LA Girl’s Velvet Blush Contour Stick in Plume (best match to the dolls blush) I smudged it across my M439 brush by Morphe then proceeded to patting it across my cheeks beginning from the apples stippling up towards my hairline, this forms an uplifted appearance without heavy contouring!
Dolls typically are NOT glazed donuts, in fact they encompass a youthful sheen, not like plastic, if that was on your mind. To achieve this aesthetic, I first took a pea-sized amount of my Nars Liquid Illuminator in Copacabana onto the back of my hand, then gently blended it across the high points of my face using a Mac Duo-Fibre 159 Brush! Using that SAME brush, I then swept into Nars’s Highlighting Blush in Miss Liberty and applied it onto any areas Copacabana originally gazed upon. Although Meygan has glittery pinkish red lips, I decided to take creative common on this one and use Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Pure Hollywood paired with Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Gloss in Bellini, shimmering, but not obnoxiously glittery! Too set my skin I FIRMLY patted Bobbi Brown’s Skin Weightless Powder Foundation under any highlighting zones of my face using a Beauty Blender Pro, mainly the under eyes for brightening effects and on the sides of my nose to conceal redness, then sprayed on Mac’s Prep + Prime Fix+ too ensure long wearing shift free makeup would be in my future ;). We’re coming near this point once again where dolls have one feature, but you might not– dolls happen to have matte skin finishes, however that does NOT mean you must too, take inspiration, do not follow in full, especially when matte finishes for someone like me with dry skin makes my face look icky!
