So lately I havent been feeling all too well and just overall just don't feel good. So I have been keeping with my faveorite makeup of all time. This look is one I've worn for over 4 years now, and I always go back to it. It looks great with any lip color (black, deep reds, berries, pinks, purples, etc.) and if you have green or hazel eyes, it'll make them pop like crazy!
One thing I like about this look is that it's both dramatic but very simple to do. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy to add different colors to it to make it a different look :)
In writing this is how I do it and what eyeshadows/products I use from my product list below:
1.) Apply an eyeshadow base all over your lid and up to the brow bone
(Too Faced Shadow Insurance)
2.) Sweep a eyeshadow color all over your lid and up to your brow bone that is the same color as your skin tone.
('Urban Decay Vice 3' - Truth with a mix of 'Too Faced Chocolate Bar' - White Chocolate)
3.) Start with a light brown or light grey eyeshadow and work it into the crease in outter V an dstart to create a soft base shape for your makeup
('Urban Decay Vice 3' - Undone and 'Too Faced Chocolate Bar' - Milk Chocolate)
4.) Add a medium brown or grey eyeshadow to the crease and outter V to start adding definition and building up the gradient for the darker colors to come.
(Urban Decay Vice 3 - DTF, Defy)
5.) Now we will start to darken the crease and start to get our 'cut crease' like shape, but in a soft and settle way. Rock these colors back and forth in your crease and outer V. I slighting blend mine from the outer V to a bit on the lid to give it a more sultry look.
('Urban Decay Vice 3' - Defy.... Sigma - Elysees.....Too Faced Chocolate Bar - Triple Fudge)
6.) Now to slightly use a very little bit of these darker colors to the outer V and slightly blend it into the crease. Make sure to deposit the color initially on the outer V and bring it into the crease to blend. You don't want a super harsh crease but you want the extra darkness to make the look more sultry. Start with the browns and add just a touch of the black at the end.
(Too Faced Chocolate Bar - Triple Fudge.....Lorac Pro to Go - Espresso......Sugarpill - Bulletproof)
7.) Take a clean brush and blend all the edges to make sure everything is all blended. If your edges are harsh take a little bit of a shadow that is close to your skin color onto a blending brush and lightly blend the edges.
8.) Take a small brush or use your finger and apply a small bit of white eyeshadow to your inner corner. Also use a small brush and highlight under your brow bone with the same shadow.
(Sugarpill - Tako)
9.) Apply Eyeliner, Mascara, and Eyebrows :)
