Alright, let’s jump in starting with the eyes. I’m beginning with brows done, you can see how I fill in my brows here: All About Brows – Current Brow Routine
I’ve primed my eyes using the Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
The first shadow I am using is “Entomology” (light matte cream) as a base shade from lid to brow bone.This gives a nice clean canvas as well as helping blend the other shadows later.
Next up on a fluffy blending brush, I took “Vanish” (matte milk chocolate brown) as a transition shade and to add depth to the eye. I placed “Vanish” into the crease and pulled it upward toward the brow bone lightly.
On a flat shader brush, I took “Killing Jar” (shimmery peach) onto the lid. I love this shade for spring. It’s a soft peachy shade that looks great on it’s on as just a wash of color.
Next, with a small blending brush I took the tiniest bit of “Disintegration” ( shimmery copper brown) on the outer corner just to add some depth. I barely touched the brush into “Disintegration” because it’s super pigmented and softly blended it into the outer corner.
I then took “Delany” (a warm silver) onto the inner part of the lid blending into “Killing Jar” Then on the inner most corner and brow bone I lightly applied “Telepathy” (silvery champagne)
To keep the look simple and fresh I took a brown liner and smudged it along with my upper lash line creating a small wing to give my eye some lift.
On the bottom lash line, I applied took “Vanish” to add depth then blended in “Killing Jar” on the center and “Telepathy” on the inner corner. Then lined the waterline with NYX Wonder Pencil in Light.
I finished the eye off with a couple coats of Tarte’s Lights Camera Lashes mascara. Review here: Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara Review and Demo
On to the rest of the face.
For foundation, I used Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Monte Blanc. Then did the concealer thing with Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly and set everything with Nars Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder.
I have a review of the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation here: Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Review and Demo
I contoured and highlighted with the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette. To see how I use the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette check out this post: Kat Von D Shade+Light Contour Palette Review and Demo
Now to add some more GLOW! I took Diffused Light Ambient Lighting Powder from Hourglass through the center of the face, then Luminous Bronze Light to add some warmth to my skin and Luminous Flush to bring a warm pink glow to my cheeks. Lastly, I applied Iridescent Light to the high points of my cheeks. I wanted a warm kind of deep red on the lips with a matte finish.
I lined my lips using Auburn lip liner from MAC
For my lipstick, I used MAC Nose for Style From the Haute Dog Collection with has a more satin finish so to make it matte I took the Revlon Photoready Prime+Anti shine Balm and patted it on my lips. This gives your lipstick a matte finish and makes them much longer wearing and less likely to transfer.
Here’s the finished look! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I have one more coming up using the Kat Von D Monarch Palette and a review.
