Lillee Jean 2015 Pink Holiday Makeup Tutorial

I don’t know about you guys but I am super excited for the upcoming holidays! In lieu of these fabulous events coming up, I created a look that is EXTREMELY versatile and accommodates even those not comfortable with makeup. While some might be afraid to use a strawberry pink on the lids, I assure you that its just like wearing an intense bronze.

*Dr Brants Pores No More Primer

*Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme Foundation, Sand

*Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able Concealer, 1 Awake

*Cover Fx Cream Foundation, N100

*Givenchy Poudre Bonne Mine Healthy Glow Powder, 4

*Marc Jacobs #instamarc Filtering Powders, 40 Mirage Filter

*Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush, Candy Glow

*Nars Multiple Stick, Copacabana

*Hourglass Ambient Lighting Pallet, Incandescent Light

*MUFE HD Setting Powder

*Urban Decay All Nighter Spray

*Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Lolita (older batch from 2014) and ABH Lipgloss in Vintage

Before moving forward with this look, throughly cleanse and moisturize your skin! After spending an hour squeezing out blackheads with a tweezer, I came to the realization it is sort of addicting, to stay the least. Almost like when you see your own ear wax…hmm. At any rate, besides the fact I am grotesque, I then proceeded to exfoliate my skin with Peter Thomas Roth’s FIRMx Peeling Gel! This exfoliator is superior to any buffing grains on the market today because it gets all the gook off of my skin and you can visibly see the dead skin rolling off! I like to allow the gel to set for 2-3 minutes for extra enzyme relief, this leaves a clearer and brighter complexion. I then proceed to wash the gel off with warm water and as a finishing step, doused my skin with Fresh Seaberry Oil! Allow this to sink into your pores for a good 4 minutes!

I actually just bought the Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme last Saturday and I was shocked. It has the most full coverage consistency out of ALL of my foundations, even out of Estee Lauder’s Double Wear. While it might be because this is a creme, it defiantly packs a punch in pigment leaving me to NOT need any concealer, which is a plus! I haven’t tried applying it with a Beauty Blender yet but I should because I noticed with brushes that go unwashed for a few days, the foundation tugs tremendously. At any rate, I squeezed only one pump onto the back of my hand and with my Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting Foundation Brush, blended away! Instead of starting from the center of my face I patted the foundation onto both cheeks, on top my forehead, and on my chin. The placement process is super simple with the MJ sculpting brush because it naturally conforms to the contours of the face! After you have placed the product all over your skin, there should be a hefty amount left over, I chose to save it incase I needed fuller coverage on spotted areas. Simply begin to drag the product out from the center of your face to your hairline. Use long strokes, and be sure to focus mostly on downward motions this way peach fuzz is less noticeable! Repeat this motion all around the face until you reach an area needing more coverage. On those areas simply pick up more product and stipple it in.

This look was extremely glowy so don’t be afraid to rock even a super shimmery glow! I went for a subtle highlight with a “inner glow” appearance. I began with a cream to powder lluminzer to create a stickier base for the powder to come! I simply applied Nars Multiple Stick in Copacabana right from the tube to the C’s of my eyes (from my brow bone down to my cheekbones), and with a clean finger blended it in gently with downward streaks. Any excess product was put onto my cupids bow and down the bridge of my nose! For just a slight touch of glimmer I took the #53 Sephora brush and dusted Hourglass’s Incandescent Light right onto my cheek bones.

Right after my eyes were finished I proceeded to set my skin with Makeup Forevers HD Setting Powder! With the Sephora #74 brush I dusted it under my eyes, on my T-zone, between my cheek and jaw line contour, and on my chin. Then, I simply sprayed Urban Decays All Night Spray a few times to ensure the makeup would last all day long and look refreshed!

As far as the lips go I opted in for a dusty nude with rose tones! I just applied Lolita straight from the tube then went over it with Anastasia Beverly Hills Vintage. This look honestly goes with anything, including any lip color. How do I know this? Well I wore a primary blue jumpsuit which is the most clash-prone shade known, and it worked wonderfully. Experiment, and do what feels and looks best on you:)!

*Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade, Caramel

Once you have put on your highlight, or perhaps setting powder, move right to the brows! I changed to the color Caramel rather my normal Blonde because my roots have grown out quite a bit and the ashy tones weren’t cutting it for me. Just like any day of the week I spoolied through each brow with my ABH #12 brush then proceeded to line and fill in each brow to my desired shape!

*Bobbi Brown Cream Eyeshadow in Bone

*Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil, Milk

With a cleaned shadow brush go into Bobbi Browns Cream Eyeshadow in Bone and spread it evenly across the lids up to the brow bone. Then, right from the stick take Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk and smudge it on the entire lid area. Just like with the cream eyeshadow blend this out with either a finger or the same brush, be sure to concentrate it on the lid area only.

*Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Pans, Razzleberry, Frappe, Bitten, Corrupt, Homecoming

*Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow, Deep Plum

*LimeCrime Venus Pallet, Shell, *Aura

With a fluffy blending brush take the shade Frappe and blend it into the crease with fluent circular motions. This is just the traditional shade so if you mess up, don’t stress it! I am using ABH’s Self-Made Pallet brush by the way, works amazing. If you do not have Frappe go for any medium toned brown with slight red notes, this way it compliments the pinks and plums to come.
