Make-up on Others: Smokey Green Eyes and Peach Lips

I've never really disclosed this much, but I'm also an amateur photographer and I love to find victims on whom I can apply make-up and then photograph. I'm fascinated by faces and love to capture them. So I decided to add a section where I do make-up on other brown women and post them here. So the first one in this section is on my friend who is around an nc30. I hope you like this look.

Make-up Used:

  • MAC Fix +
  • Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in medium 2
  • MAC Studio fix xonxealor
  • MAC Carbon eyeshadow
  • MAC Shroom eyeshadow
  • NARS Night Clubbing
  • MAC Lingering brow pencil
  • MAC Blacktrack gel liner
  • L'Oreal Voluminous
  • NARS Deep Throat
  • NARS Niagara
  • Carmex
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion

Tools Used:
  • MAC 192 brush
  • MAC 242 brush
  • MAC 129 brush
  • MAC 222 brush
  • MAC 219 brush
  • MAC 217 brush
  • Bobbi Brown eyeliner brush
  • Shiseido eyelash curler

Step 1:
After prepping her skin with moisturizer and under-eyes with eye cream, I applied Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation in on her skin with a make-up sponge.

Step 2:
I primed her lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Step 3:
I picked up Nars Night Clubbing shadow with my MAC 242 brush and sprayed some MAC Fix + on it. This brings out the green glitters in it and allows you to foil the shadow. I then pressed the shadow onto her lids, stopping at the crease. With the MAC 219 brush, I applied NARS Night Clubbing on the lower lash line after moistening it with MAC Fix +.

Step 4:
With the MAC 219 brush, I blended out the shadow at the crease slightly, and towards the browbone.

Step 5:
I dipped the Bobbi Brown eyeliner brush in MAC Blacktrack and made a medium-thin line across the entire top lid. I then made the outer edge slightly thicker. After this, I applied Blacktrack to her lower waterline.

Step 6:
I dipped my MAC 219 brush into MAC Carbon and lightly blended this over the liner on the top lid and rimmed my lower lash line as close to the lashes as possible.

Step 7:
For the brows, I brushed them with a spoolie brush and then enhanced them slightly with MAC Lingering

Step 8:
I enhanced the brow bone with MAC Shroom, and blended it out towards the crease.

Step 9:
To make the lashes stand out, I curled them with the Shiseido eyelash curler and applied two coats of L'Oreal Voluminous to top and bottom lashes.

Step 10:
Now comes concealor, as I wanted to make sure I could get rid of any fall out. I applied MAC Studio Finish concealor NW 25 and blended it in with the MAC 217 (it's amazing for this).

Step 11:
I applied the blush slightly above the cheekbone, from the apply of the cheek to the temple.

Step 12:
No lipliner was used and I applied NARS Niagara on the lips and topped it off with Carmex to soften it without adding too much drama to the lips.

thank you all for the lovely comments. Divya, I came out of the womb wanting make-up and have been a freelancer for the past few years :).

hey anonymous: nc30 is the skin shade with the mac numbering system of their foundations. for example i'm an nc45 (at times)

I like the detailed tutorial, though would have liked to see some work-in-progress pics and maybe a close up of the finished result...
Maybe something like this - but not flash pls - takes too long to load !!!

(I'm not affiliated to the make-up link I posted - definitely not a plug !)
