I always love the look of very natural, almost barely there make-up. You know, the kind where you'd swear someone's wearing only a bit of kajal but a whole bunch of work went into it.
Make-up For Ever HD foundation in 153, patted on sheerly
Revlon Photoready powder in translucent
Chanel Correcteur Perfection in Beige Santal
Maybelline Lash Stiletto
Bobbi Brown Espresso ink gel
MAC Blunt under cheekbones, sides of nose etc.
MAC Peachtwist under cheekbones
Bobbi Brown Twilight creamy lip colour
MAC 190 brush
MAC 109 brush
MAC 222 brush
MAC 224 brush
MAC 219 brush
MAC 214 brush
Sephora lip brush
Apply Make-up Forever HD foundation lightly over the face with the 192 brush. I patted it on slightly and blended it in to get a very thin, natural finish.
Apply the Beige Santal concealor under the eyes, around the lips, and any other places you find necessary. Blend out with the 224 brush, and be sure to make the concealor look as natural and non-cakey as possible.
Dust the Revlon Photoready powder very lightly with the 109 brush and blend it into the skin in a circling motion. I tend to focus the powder more on the t-zone and see if it's even needed on the cheeks.
Brush brows into shape and fill them in as needed. Keep it according to your natural brow shape and thickness.
With the 222 brush, apply Mulch eyeshadow on the crease and blend out, esecially towards the outer end of your brow.
With the 219 brush, gently accentuate the outer 'v' of your crease with the Handwritten eyeshadow. Make sure to blend it as much as possible while still giving the sweep from the outer coner of the eye to the outer end of your brow bone. It is meant to elongate the eye and make it look more feline by playing with shadow.
With an angled eyeliner brush, dot the Espresso Ink gel liner on the upper lash line.
Apply one coat of a lengthening mascara such as Lash Stiletto on upper and lower lash line. Concentrate the mascara ore on the outer lashes.
Contour right under your cheekbone toward your hairline with the 109 brush dipped in Blunt. Blend out with the same brush.
Give the contour a bit more colour by going over the contour, that means blended out from under the cheekbone, with Peachtwist.
Fill lips in with the Twilight lipstick with a lip brush. I added a bit more colour on the lips just because I wanted slightly more definition, but feel free to make the lipstick almost like a stain.
