I was going through my own posts and realised I haven’t explained what I did for the look I did on the Eyes To Kill post. It is a very simple look and the eyes look dimensional solely because of the complexity of these gorgeous ETK. To know what I did and used for this look, please read on.
It was a day I knew I was going to be out in the sun a lot, so I chose something very light instead. I knew I was going to sweat, and no matter how long wearing a foundation is, when the weather is hot and humid AND when there is sweat involved, makeup WILL melt to a certain degree. A light foundation is more comfortable on me, and should the makeup run in unstrategic places, it will be less obvious. All I have to do is touch up on powder. I used Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua as a base, and I run some powder (Chanel Poudre Universells Libre) over my T-zone. For blush, I used Tarte Exposed, starting at the hollow of my cheeks, blending upwards toward the apple of my cheeks. This technique helps emphasize my cheek bones.
Eyebrows are filled in using Empro brow pencil in 02 Golden Brown. It is a triangular shaped pencil that draws very easily. I’ve gone through 5 of these, actually. On lids, I dabbed on Pulp Fiction using my fingers. With a fluffy blending brush (MAC217), I blended out the harsh edges, making sure the colours stay within my eye socket. Using a pencil brush, I lightly smudged Pulp Fiction on my lower lash line. With Smokey Copper and an angled eyeliner brush, I lined close to my lashes for a more natural look. 2 coats of black mascara completed this look.
I wanted this look to be neutral for day time, since I was visiting a home for the handicapped. What’s better than my MLBB (my lips but better) lipstick? It’s easy to apply and reapply, can’t go wrong with it, really.
I mentioned earlier that I’d touch up on powder when necessary. For this purpose, I usually keep my Lunasol face powder in my purse. Very handy and it brightens a complexion instantly. What I used here can be easily replaced with whatever you have at home. It is a simple FOTD even someone very new in makeup can replicate. I hope you like this look and that you’ll give it a try.
