I can’t be one to stress perfect skin with this makeup look since I literally went home from school, removed my makeup, and started on a relatively dirty canvas. I suppose today is a fantastic day to talk about my new discovery- Neutrogena’s Hydrating Makeup Removing wipes! A few day’s ago I had posted a video of me removing my makeup and a TON of you were curious as to what I used since all my love bunnies know I’m a huge fan of waterproofed products. Not only does this wipe remove ALL my makeup (ONE WIPE) within 4 minutes, I have noticed long term skin benefits of less dry skin AND too my surprise less acne broken out skin! I highly suggest you guy’s give the wipe’s a try, if they work on my sensitive skin surly they will be durable for you too. Do be noted these retail for $7.00 and ONLY LAST one month per package, use them wisely! Take into account I also used them for my recent dramatic makeup look’s, in general this whole package probably would of lasted me a month in a half. If you want to proceed with your regular routine, be my guest it probably is much more beneficial than my method, I just wanted to get a blog tutorial done before the sun set!!!

As many of you know I’ve grown on my Natasha Denona Hydrating Primer QUITE a bit! Every morning? Natasha Denona. Every makeup look? Natasha Denona. Concisely said, this is the most AMAZING primer for almost all skin types! How do I know this? Well after experimenting on dry skin (myself) AND oily skin (two clients), it is pretty damn fantastic. Rewinding back to when I removed my makeup, I then went ahead and dashed on finger tip amounts of the primer onto the tops of my cheeks, the center of my forehead, the bridge of my nose, and the center of my chin! Its best to dash cream primers on the high points because it makes blending the product out gradually MUCH easier, and it requires less product. Once I had the primer placement set I went forth in gently blending the cream out using firm motions starting from the center of my face dragging out towards my hairline! Make sure you don’t neglect the sides of your face, this will get you especially if you plan to wear the select makeup look 1-10 hours. Based on whether your primer contains oil properties on not, gauge the amount of time you’d prefer the skin base to sink into your pores!

Powder blush= not a favorite of Lillee, so why did I venture out into this scary realm? Well, to be frank Baby Love is a spectacular and interesting shade SO WHY NOT. This whole she-bang was very similar to my foundation battle, I was contemplating whether to use Mac’s Relaxation Cream Color or Baby Love. In the end I chose Baby Love just for the reason I wanted a subdue facial appearance, the attention is all on the eyes and lips! With that being said, using my Sephora #74 brush I gently tapped into the powder and flicked (in other words blended upwards in short strokes) the finely milled particles onto my skin starting from the apples of my cheeks up to my hairline. Try to stick within the “up to hairline” effect because it’ll give the illusion of higher raised cheekbones, just as explained with the bronzer previously, and it will give a desired flush rather clown rouge. The illumination process was VERY important because it added a subtle hint of brightness to the very elaborate look, don’t mistaken subdue for no dimension! With Benefit’s High Beam I lightly drew dashes on the high points of my face (cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupid’s bow, forehead, and chin) and then proceeded to blending them in with my middle+ring finger together, I stuck mostly to patting motions. I actually had a rather good beat going on so I decided to keep my two fingers together (almost like they were glued together) this way I could smudge into the Bh Cosmetic’s Floral Blush Duo, specifically the lighter highlighting shade and pat it right onto the area’s previously liquid illuminated. As you can tell I stuck with light pinks, champagnes will work fine however it’ll bring a much different aspect to this look then desired as a different contrast is formed between the teal’s and bright blue’s.

THE LIP PART WAS THE BOMB.COM! Not only did this color boost my mood, it was just spectacular and wore a substantial 4 hours WITH constant laughing and talking. To begin I lined my lips with Stila’s Smudge Stick in Jade, I had to build up pigment going towards the center but it was not a biggy! By this point you can either get a brush/towel, though it’ll take way form the artwork, OR get ready to get messy ;). With my index finger I went into a bit of Hug Life by Sugarpill and with one stroke of smudging, I applied it across both my upper and top lip area’s, this will require some build up to achieve a fully metallic appearance! After I had that set I followed through with adding Lumi to the center lips with smudging motions AND finally a dash of Mint Glitter by OCC for a glittery aesthetic. I personally waited towards the end to powder up and set my skin, this order allowed me to get rid of any fall out once the lips were completed anyway! Being the eyes are up next and this is on the skin/lips section let me briefly explain what was done, would you be so kind? OF COURSE you guy’s would, duh you’re all dolls! To keep it concise, with my Sephora Teardrop Highlighting Brush I lightly patted on Laura Mercier’s Translucent Powder to my under eye area, forehead, chin, and between my cheek/jaw contour. I then proceeded on to spraying Urban Decay’s All Nighter Spray to my skin for a flawless and freshly hydrating appearance!

For every intense makeup look, intense brows must follow. Not sure why but when I do glitter eyeliner it always seems less of a hassle then straight black lines, this gives more of a reason for intense brows because if the eyeliner is not highlighting the eyes, another feature MUST take the throne! To start the brows up I first spoolied through both of them with firm grooming motions using my Anastasia Beverly Hills #12 brush just too ensure the brow hairs only went one way, either left or right depending on which brow we’re discussing. I then went ahead and lined my upper+lower brow with the Dipbrow Pomade, its always best to have an outline before you start filling things in! MAKE SURE when you connect the upper+lower brow line they mend at a perfect angle at the tail end of your brow, the line should never go downwards towards your winged liner, it should extend out towards your hairline. To finish up the brows I simply filled them in with light brush strokes and sealed the deal with one last spoolieing to ensure product disbursed evenly! Just for some pre-knowledge- I wasn’t too concerned on the priming base I went after, any color will do just as long as it can withstand intense shimmer pigments. Honestly even if I used Milk by Nyx rather Yogurt the same effect would be yielded it’s just about brightness, moreover I smudged on Yogurt and blended it evenly up towards my brow bone.

The first shade applied to my lid is Ibiza, this changed tremendously because while I loved the shade at first site I realized the look starting leaning toward my Mildew Green Smokey Eye a tad too much, keep in mind this is a Spring peacock people!!! Rather a huge fluffy shadow brush I actually opted in for my Mac 224 brush, the denser and compact bristles make it much simpler to get decent pigment circulation. After having my brush selection set I then went ahead and patted on Ibiza to my entire lid area, don’t stress building up pigment too much as the color swaps into a teals color very soon! Oh hey guy’s this is very soon. Using Mermaid by Makeup Geek I firmly pat the color onto my lid’s and continuously built up the sheen until I received my desired hue. During about a half way point of building up I decided to WET the foiled eyeshadow and apply with my finger only, this yielded a more metallic appearance! The next shade up that really will sculpt the eyes out is Sherbert, stick with peachy nude’s for the transitional shade it’ll contrast well with the inner V shade’s opposed to a neutral shade that’s sort of bland. With my Mac 217 brush I lightly began sculpting in Sherbert with slight side to side motions, I avoided mixing with the lid shade as much as possible! Though it is NOT needed to build up pigment on this color I decided to just for the fact the inner V shades were close to black or were black, it needed a better gradience to adhere too. Speaking of close to black shades, once I had Sherbert blended in I moved along to the color Ocean Breeze, an extremely stunning blue with fine shimmer particles! It’s best to know your products inside and out, the fact Ocean Breeze contains shimmer is VERY important because it’ll require more pigment build up AND it can be used as a smokey effect leader (shimmer’s tend to be silkier and much easier to blend, odd observation of mine hehe). Using the same Mac 217 brush as before I firmly blended in Ocean Breeze using side to side motions and occasional tiny circular motions just to blend upwards into Sherbert. This color followed the creasing of my eye socket to a T which made for a better “rounded” smokey eye effect! To finish up the crease I took the shade Panther and gently smudged it into the inner V using a Mac 219 Pencil brush. Be careful of the way you apply this, as you can see from the photo’s shown above I used a very light hand, if you mess up simply go into a fluffy blending brush and try your best to ease the harsh lines!
