So after doing a mini series of sorts on the makeup look appropriate for day time and office wear I was in the mood to try something heavier, moving more towards the weekend, a glamorous makeup look but wasnt in the mood to use anything glittery or shimmery so I came up with a matte look. But sorry couldnt take pictures of this look step wise, just one picture in the beginning when I wasnt sure where this look was going.
Anyhooo, I shall share that one picture hopefully it gives you a jest of how to get this look.
I shall do my best to take you through the steps to achieve this look .
After prepping the face with THE BODY SHOP MATTE IT PRIMER, I applied my MAYBELLINE DREAM LIQUID MOUSSE FOUNDATION .
I then applied my LOREAL CRAYON CONCEALER UNDER THE EYES.
Then I set my face with ELF HD powder .
And then came the NYX EYESHADOW BASE .I applied it on the entire eyes including the lower waterline and blended it well.
Then I took a deep burgundy brown and applied it on the lids keeping it well below the crease.
Then I added a mid tone black eye shadow (not the blackest black) on top of that brown eyeshaow taking it over the crease slightly.
And then all I did was blend, blend, blend until I got the desired effect, and then I added the brown on the lid area again to make it pop a bit as it was too blended.
for the lower lash line too I overlapped the eye shadows first brown and then black and blended them really well. For eyeliner I just used the black eyeshadow , curled my lashes and applied loads of mascara. The picture below is with false eyelashes.
Hope you all liked it…
UNTIL NEXT TIME…
