Yet another old look! I did this around mid-November, I think, but I made the worst mistake! So, I did all the makeup so I could post on the blog, but I started removing my makeup before I had taken full-face photos. My total apologies for the way the full-face photos turned out, because I only realized my error after I had removed one eye. I tried to hide it using my hair, but it didn’t go so well, LOL. But hopefully you get the idea.

Now, I better get my butt back to studying. My three-hour final starts at 1PM, and it is worth 100% of my grade! Wish me luck ;)

P.S. – Somehow comments got disabled on this post, but they’re allowed now :) Sorry about that!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Azreal pigment (soft blue-aqua), Aquavert eyeshadow (soft aqua), Shimmermoss eyeshadow (teal), Electric Eel eyeshadow (bright blue), Freshwater eyeshadow (medium blue), Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow (green-gold), Prescriptives Blue Grotto liner (forest green-blue), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Enough Said blush (soft peach)
  • Lips: Ravishing lipstick (coral-orange), Pink Grapefruit lipglass (coral-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Azreal = Blue + Frozen White; Aquavert = Tilt; Enough Said = bronzer, Pink Grapefruit = Lychee Luxe

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Azreal pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Aquavert eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Shimmermoss eyeshadow to the middle of the lid, then overlay partiall with Electric Eel eyeshadow. Darken the outer lid using Freshwater eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Darken crease with Freshwater eyeshadow using the 239. Sweep Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Prescriptives’ Blue Grotto liner on lower lash line then smudge with Freshwater eyeshadow using the 219, and Plushlash mascara on lashes.

GRR!! I really, really LOVED this look and how it turned out, and of course – I didn’t do close-ups in front of a mirror, so they didn’t turn out as well as they normally did. I included more full-face shots as a compromise, since I just uploaded them this morning (aka, the makeup was removed!). The boy and I went to a fancy schmancy steakhouse to celebrate our anniversary a few days early (super yum!), so I got all dolled up for it :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: MAC Azreal Blue pigment (light blue), Dior Twilight Eyeshadow Quint, MAC Fly-by-blu pearlglide liner (navy), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Gentle mineralize blush (soft raspberry-pink)
  • Lips: YSL Lingerie Pink rouge volupte lipstick (cool, pastel pink), Cult Fave lipglass (pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Azreal Blue = Delft; Fly-by-blu = Prussian; Gentle = Plum Foolery; Lingerie Pink = Snob; Cult Fave = Cultured (for this look only)

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Azreal Blue pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner-to-middle lid, apply the light blue shade from the Dior quint using the 239 brush. Apply the light silver color of the Dior quint to the middle of your lid using the 239 brush. Darken the outer lid using the dark blue shade from the Dior quint and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep the light blue shade underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Fly-by-blu pearlglide liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Gentle blush using the 129. Apply YSL Lingerie Pink lipstick to lips, and then top with Cult Fave lipglass for color and shine.
