Lillee Jean Summery Gold and Apricot Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial 2016
Thank you Instagramies for responding to my recent post on wether you prefer these “step-by-step pictorials” OR would prefer me to just…stop! Heard ya’ loud and clear, the pictorials continue on as many of you said you find them inspirational and EASIER to follow as opposed to just reading the fine print. Anyhow, every makeup look, especially eye makeup creations, need base products! From eyebrow formulas (Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer, Auburn), to priming serums (Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil, Strawberry Milk) they’re necessary and take place on the NEED list rather WANT, you cannot have a glittery shadow look without some form of sticky base. Since I have become very fond of my Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil collection I learned the ways of manipulating the stick formula to actually be creamy and have a glitter glue like base! The trick? Using my Strawberry Milk pencil by example, I prefer smudging the product straight onto the center of my lids FROM the stick, then with a clean ring finger I blend the product up towards my brow bone and underneath my lower lash line, the stretching of this product disburses the pearl minerals and reacts with the eyelid oils thus creating a stick like texture, comfortable, but sticky enough for glitter pigments. If you happen to own the Morphe 35OS eyeshadow pallet, whip it out girl, its go time! Using my Morphe E22 Pointed Blender I dipped right into Column 7, Row 2 and proceeded to smudging the shade across my lids up into my crease with fluent side to side blending motions. This method is NOT commonly used, although it tis’ easiest, however if you focus on your side to side blends really disbursing upwards all shall go swell! To add some depth and dimension and sorta form the “apricot” effect, I switched to the shade Column 7, Row 1 and blended it gently into my crease using very slight pressurized circular motions, build up pigment as needed! Now using my M433 Morphe Brush I took Rebirth from the Lime Crime Venus Pallet and HEAVILY smudged/patted this across my lids, in the midst of smudging the shade was evenly disbursed into the creasing of my eye socket, do be noted this is a very SLIGHT smudging inwards. Being I had the pallet out I decided to take Aura and brush it against my brow bones and the inner corners of my eyes, I kept this slight however BECAUSE glitter will be applied soon, we need the stick like base!
