Eye Widening Cool Toned Lilac Pastel Glittery Cut Crease Makeup Tutorial

Aside from all the dramatic makeup tutorials I have been posting, here is one exuding a different message, one of softer intent! Your Lilz can be an Ice Queen, a Fire Queen, as well as a soft and sweet cotton candy lady who takes no poo poo from any man! Okay, I slightly was on a streak there, oops, hehe. Anyhow, happy September love bunnies! With a new month comes a few assured reviews and a bit of eccentric makeup looks correlating with the warm tones Autumn brings. Pausing here for a second, not ALL my tutorials shall be bronzy, coppery, nor orange toned! You gotta’ live a little. Hence, why today I took a huge break from darker and intensive hues and switched, completely, to the other side of the spectrum! Pastel’s are such lovely colors. When paired correctly with certain skin tones this spectrum can yield eye widening and face brightening effects, just view the cover photo presented below! Let’s get into the details, I hope you loves enjoy– PLEASE stay tuned for the YouTube upload, this shall be done at a later date tomorrow night, XOXO.

As many of you know skin care is my number one priority, but so is my sanity, no pun intended! Rather spending 6 minutes rigorously washing my face to only have it dirtied up and my pores clogged by makeup, I opted in for an alternative method which essentially includes using a hydrating and refreshing priming base, this way my skin LOOKS refreshed and FEELS refreshed. My pick? The Marc Jacobs Under Cover Perfecting Coconut Face Primer! While it sounds great skipping skin care and jumping right into the tutorial, do be noted the one pump of priming potion disbursed evenly across all zones of my face (forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, hairline) was left to set for 3 minutes before I visibly saw it sinking into my pores and acting as a primer should, a barrier. For foundation I chose the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation in my shade 117 Marble, and using exactly one and a half pumps of product placed on the back of my hand (1 1/2 pumps), I picked up the Morphe M439 Deluxe Buffer brush and started evenly coating my skin beginning from my left cheek working clockwise up towards my forehead with slight stipples, then counter clockwise twice to my chin with large circular motions, this method was continued until I received a desirable coverage. As far as blush goes I wanted something VERY subtle, yet complaint with the pastel concept at hand, SOOOO, I went with Maybelline’s Dream Bouncy Blush in Rose Petal! Taking my E.L.F. Studio Stipple Brush, I pricked gently into the product then proceeded to softly bouncing the rosy hue across the apples of my cheeks blending up towards my hairline!

As a pre-warning you MIGHT not fancy the glow achieved as it is VERY shimmery, but c’est la vie. Kicking things off with Cover Fx’s Enhance Click Illuminator, I smudged Bubbly firmly across all high points of my face (cheekbones, bridge of nose, Cupid’s bow), then using my ring finger softly blended the product in with downward strokes! This was set using Urban Decay’s Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder in Aura with Mac’s Duo-Fibre 159 Brush— Aura has pink and redish shifts, it’s quite the contrast with the feminine purple shadow, which is why I chose it. Lippie wise I coated my lips using Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick in Georgie Girl, then glossed em’ over with Saint Germain Mac Cosmetics Lipglass! Try to stick within the range of cool toned pinks and light lilac glosses, anything deeper in tone will distract away from the eyes and defeat the purpose of an eye widening effect. Setting wise I really was aiming to clear up any visible blemishes or noticeable dark circles, so I firmly patted my Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation in 1 Warm Ivory across all highlighting zones of my face (mainly under eye area) using a DRY Beauty Blender Pro. In my personal studies, when the Beauty Blender is wet, my powder application looks caked and rather disgusting, do what works best for you, not all professional tips work! To really seal the deal I spritz on Mac’s Fix+ and was ready to slay the world ;).
