Who’s ready for some makeup? Girl, after these last few weeks I need some makeup play time. I really wanted to do something playing with the Norvina Palette which I haven’t featured in a tutorial yet. I also wanted to have some fall/winter vibes since we are coming into the holiday season. Something wearable but glam. This is a look I wore to go do some shopping and have a nice date day with my husband but I could see wearing this for Thanksgiving or a nice family get together. You can change the lip up to suit your style as well. I’m still living my best vampire life so I wanted that dramatic lip.
This look is all about soft warmth and rose golds. I am even branching out and wearing some false lashes lately. Who even is she? I know, I bitch about how much I hate them but now I like them… Anyway, let’s jump in and get started on this look.
The star of the show is the ABH Norvina Palette which I am so in love with. It just makes my insides happy to look at it. If you want a full review of this beauty just click here: Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette Review and Looks.
To start off, I have primed my eyes with concealer and set the lid lightly with the shade called Base.
Base is a satiny matte cream. I dusted this all over the lid with a large fluffy brush. Also here is my brush guide for reference: The Brush Guide | Eye Brushes
Moving on the transition shade, I went in with this dusty pink called Love.
On a large fluffy blending brush, I really blew this shade out all throughout the transition area and socket like. Even toward the brow. I have hooded eyes and I feel going HAM with transitions shades and building the crease up with multiple shades is key for me.
To build more depth, I went in a smaller blending brush with Volatile. I matte taupe.
I blended this shade lower than Love closer to the crease. Can you see how much more depth that added? My eyes are hooded but they are also kind of deep set so they take some finessing. As we age our lids tend to become more hooded as well. I didn’t have hooded eyes at a teen but as I have grown up and aged (31 years old) my eyes have changed, the lids have become heavier so techniques have to be adapted.
Back to the eye look, to get added definition I went in with Passion. A matte garnet shade.
I placed this shade using a small dense brush focused on the outer portion of the lid and into the crease softly. I adore these shades together.
On the lid, for some shine, I went in with Rose Gold on a flat brush.
I blended Rose Gold into Passion.
For some extra drama… I went in with the shade Drama. You see what I did there. HUEHUEHUE.
On a pencil brush, I took a small amount of Drama just in the outer corner softly for some added depth.
Now for so extra shine, I took Wild Child just in the center of the lid.
This just gives a hint of light right to the center.
Next, I used Drama as my liner on an angled brush and lined the upper lashline and winged it out just a bit and blended it into the outer corner as well as cleaning up any fall out with a q-tip and face primer.
I went ahead and finished off my face makeup and moved on to the lower lash line with Love and Passion blended from the outer corner toward the inner keeping most of the pigmentation focused toward that outer point.
And a touch of Drama to meet up to the wing.
I then took a touch of Dreamer for the inner corner.
This shade burns my eyes so bad! Anyway, I popped Dreamer on the inner corner and blended it into shadow on the lower lash line. I also put a touch of Wild Child on the lower lash line as well in the empty space I left with the mattes.
To finish up the eye, I dusted away the extra fall out, did some last minute blended. Then applied a couple coats of Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara and a set of Ardell Demi Whispies.
The Finished Look.
I kept the face makeup in the same tone. I honestly can’t recall (and I didn’t write it down) what blush I used or anything else aside from I used Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighter in Blossom Glow. On the lips is Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Ricco.
I loved this look so much and I had such a lovely day that day too. Had a nice lunch, did some shopping, got coffee. It was just a nice day with my husband. Also, the girls in Sephora asked who I was, as in was I like a youtuber or something. Am I a real Booty guru now? LOL. That has happened a few times lately. That early 30’s glow up. LOL. I will say this, I want to part of being on youtube. I hate editing video with a passion and speaking to a camera much more. I am much better in the written word and I enjoy writing, Youtube just seems like stress and a lot of bullshit. I just really enjoy writing and photography on top of makeup. I always have.
Anyway, I will see ya’ll tomorrow with a new MOTD. Still playing catch up around here. My dad is home from the hospital though. His dog is very happy. I’m not sure what the future holds and if I can stay on my blogging schedule but I sure will try. I miss it.
Do ya’ll want to see more looks with the Norvina Palette? Let me know below. I just picked up the Huda Beauty Emerald Palette and the Kat Von D Fetish Collection as well as some other goodies. (not the sultry palette. Naked 2 with a shitty red.)
