Guest Look:  Anita

Reader Look: Anita Goes BRIGHT! with Dior

Long-time reader Anita (you may recognize her posting under the name Anitacska–try typing that ten times fast!) shared this fun, bold look she created with Dior’s Tropical Quint. She said she’s never done such a bright look before!

  • Eyes: She began by laying down Guerlain Eyeshadow Primer as her eyeshadow base. For eyeshadow, she primarily used Dior’s Tropical (#940) Eyeshadow Quint. On the inner corner, she applied a turquoise eyeshadow and then applied the light purple to the middle of the lid, above the crease, and on the lower lash line. She used a darker purple on the outer corner and crease with a lighter pink above the creas. Anita used Laura Geller’s Blush ‘n Brighten in Boysenberry/Amaretti to highlight the brow bone. To line her waterline, she used Urban Decay Covet 24/7 Eyeliner and finished lashes with Boots No. 7 Extreme Length Mascara in black.
  • Cheeks: Anita applied MAC Two Virtues Mineralize Blush on her cheeks with Laura Geller’s Blush ‘n Brighten in Boysenberry/Amaretti to highlight the top of her cheeks.
  • Lips: She kept it simple and applied MAC Bubblegum lipstick to her lips for some color.

Halloween Makeup: Villainville – Unzipped, Corpse Bride, Queen of Hearts

Sophia had the distinct pleasure of doing the makeup for not just herself… but her group of friends! Together, they’re “Villainville” as she would say!

Sophia tells us she used colors from the 78 Color and 28 Neutral Palettes. She also used face paints from Make Up For Ever, and a few lip/cheek products for each look.

Unzipped Look: Sophia used Petrilude’s tutorial.

Corpse Bride: Sophia’s cousin did the makeup and followed Miss Chievious’ tutorial.

Queen of Hearts: This is Sophia herself! She did this look by following Kandee Johnson’s tutorial.
