Lillee Jean X-Men Jean Grey/Phoenix Inspired Wearable Makeup Tutorial 2016
To add a natural radiance, I smudged Cover Fx’s Click Highlighter stick in Bubbly onto any high points of my face– these include the tops of my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, a tad on my cupids bow and on the center of my chin/forehead! Switching back to the E.L.F. Studio Stipple Brush I then lightly brushed Grace Star Powder by Gerard Cosmetics on those EXACT areas Bubbly originally touched. Adding the highly reflective powder not only emphasizes the glow, but it enhance one’s features to a greater extent! Red lipstick and purple lipstick sadly are two shades that DID NOT fit the eye makeup well, it took away from the shimmering and fun loving nature the glittery hues brought. Instead I chose my Dose of Color Lipstick in Play Date and coated my lips twice over until I had a vibrant yet wearable unique pink color visible! Too begin finishing up I dusted Bobbi Brown’s Skin Weightless Powder Foundation in 1 Warm Ivory under highlighting zones of my face (under eyes, sides of nose, ect.), then sprayed on Urban Decay’s All Nighter Spray for ensured wear time…after all, Jean Grey has a long day ;).
Alright love bunnies, let’s begin the eye makeup! Brows are extremely important. From framing one’s face beautifully, to emphasizing the makeup at hand in a defining manner, having at least a splash of color to fill in sparse areas is a MUST. I personally like to use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in my shade Auburn since it quickly zooms through both brows in a timely fashion! The slanted tip is sooooo much better than the more popular “Brow Wiz” which contains a rounded bullet like point. Anyhow, enough with the brows onto the priming! The primer you choose isn’t quite a concern today, just make sure it yields a vibrant finish AND remains rather sticky for glitter particles to come. My pick? Mac’s Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Bare Study! I softly smudged the shimmery beige across both my lids and made sure to blend excess up toward my brow bones and under my lower lash lines, this will come in handy for the foiled colors too. The first color applied to my lids is Wish List from the Too Faced Le Grand Palais Eyeshadow Pallet– do be noted this pallet is no longer sold, however any warm toned gold shall do! Using my Mac 224 flat shader eyeshadow brush I firmly smudged into the golden color, then began patting it onto the inner third my lid with gentle up and down motions. With the same brush present, I then took Ocean Frost by Morphe Brushes and applied it to the other half of my eyelid, the center and outer third! I suggest using side to side sweeps for this intensive blue as it’ll build pigment up faster as opposed to tiny pats. If you have excess product left on your brush, smoke Ocean Frost across your lower lash line, then pick up Poolside by Makeup Geek and smudge it onto the outer third and inner third of your lower lash line, this shall build up drama and dimension for Baby Tears by Glitter Injections! Speaking of Baby Tears, dipping my pinky in the pressed glitter pigment I gently smeared it onto the center of my lower lash line, specifically onto of Ocean Frost.
