Omg, you guys! I finally feel like a human again. I for real thought I was going back to the doctor today because I was still so sick all weekend. My throat still hurts but not nearly as bad and I don’t feel like death so I guess I am finally getting better. Strep is a bitch. Anyways, I was still pretty sick when I did this look so that is why my eyes look all heavy and puffy and so does my jawline. Under my jaw and neck is so swollen I feel like Jabba the Hut.
I did this look because I thought I was feeling okay enough to go out, I was wrong… but none the less I did this very 70’s inspired look that I really liked and wanted to share. I wanted all the mustard golds and pukey browns on my eyes.
I just got this top at Target and loved the colors and style and had to do a look inspired by it. I mean, 70 vibes all the way and Star Wars. Can’t beat it. I love this shirt so much.
For this look, I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture because that palette is 70’s colors perfection.
I started this look out like always with my brows done and eyes primed with concealer cause dear god the redness from being sick is real, and set with translucent powder to help with blending. Some palettes perform better over a tacky base and some are better over a set powdered base. This is one that needs a powdered base because of the strong pigmentation. You can read my full review of the Subculture palette here where I go into detail on how I use Subculture and why I love it.
I started with the shade New Wave on a fluffy brush.
New Wave went into the transition and socket line.
Then I went in with Edge which is pretty much my favorite eyeshadow ever.
On the same fluffy brush, I blended around New Wave with Edge to create a golden yellow haze.
Next Edge went all over the lid.
To add some depth I next went in with Fudge on a small fluffy brush and softly began building it up in the outer V and lightly dusting it over into the crease.
I softened the edges of Fudge with New Wave.
Moving on to the liner. I went in with a brown gel liner pencil and smoked it out with Fudge on an angled liner brush. I went for a think smoky wing, nothing too harsh or perfect.
With the same pencil, I tight lined my upper and lower lash line as well. I also cleaned up the fallout and finished off my face makeup. I’m an eye first kinda gal.
I smoked the liner out on the lower lash line with New Wave on small pencil brush.
Then blended that out with Edge on a small fluffy brush. I need to make a brush guide…
Next, I took Fudge on a small pencil brush to deepen up the outer corner and really blend the shades together and smoke them out.
At this point, I made sure everything was blended and soft.
I finished the eyeshadow off by highlighting the browbone and inner corner with a champagne gold highlighter. I used Tarte Pro Glow in the shade Lit. I also used this shade on my face to tie everything together.
Lashes… I tested out the L’Oreal Lash Paradise Lash Primer today. Girl. Them lashes are thicc.
They a little thicc and clumpy but I don’t hate them. For my mascara, I used Maybelline Total Temptation.
And here is the finished eye.
For the lips, I wanted to go with bold and bright.
I will find any excuse to use this lip color.
And the finished look! The struggle not to look as sick as I feel is real.
