About this Look
Tonight, the Golden Globes are on TV and I felt inspired to do a look as if I was going. I recently watched Raw Beauty Kristi’s ‘then and now’ video and that’s where the base of this look came from.
I started with my eyes because of the black shadow. I primed with Makeup Forever Step 1 base, which I've been very into. I then took a small packer brush and created a base halo (leaving the center of my eye open) with Huda Beauty Rose Gold Remastered Black Truffle. I then put Game Over from the Dose of Colors Friendcation on top of it with my index finger. I then took a cotton pad and some micellar water and took the black off of my finger. I then took the same finger and went into Anastasia Pink Champagne and patted it down. I then took a clean blender brush and buffed them together. I experience a little fall out from the black at this point.
Then I went into my Smashbox Punked palette and a Wet n Wild eyeliner brush and used the shade 'Headliner' down the center of my lid. I then took my finger and patted them together. I used the same liner brush and shade and put it in my inner corner. I then moved into -
I took a cotton pad and micellar water and got rid of the minor fallout I had. I then primed my face with the Too Faced Hangover RX primer to my face. I have normal to oily skin but it works so well for me. I then took my NARS soft matte complete concealer in Vanilla and patted it gently under my eyes and onto my blemishes on my chin. Then I pumped a pump of Armani Luminous Silk foundation in 2 onto the back of my hand, then took my Sephora #57 concealer brush and buffed it into my skin, not marrying the foundation into the concealer under my eyes. After applying it, I took my Beauty Blender Sapphire to blend out the lines. I then set my face LIGHTLY with the Beauty Bakerie Flour translucent powder and the Too Face Mr. Right brush. I then took my Real Techniques Medium Shadow brush and set my undereyes.
I then took my beloved Makeup Geek contour powder in Cool Porcelain (RIP, I hope Marelna brings it back with her relaunch, though I have a backup). I took my tiny ELF brush and set it down, then took a Wet n Wild Blush brush brush and blended it back towards my ears. I then ran it gently on my nose and then across my jawline.
Blush was the star of this look, as I felt very much in a blush mood and not bronzer. I took a Sephora Fan brush and rubbed into into the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk blush. I watched Moonstruck recently and loved Cher's blush placement, so I took this brush and color and placed it higher on my cheekbones, really creating some dimension there. I then took another Wet n Wild Blush brush and went into NARS Loves Me Not blush on the apples of my cheek. I looked back and then realized that I wanted more dimension. I then reached for my Besame blush in Raspberry, took the lightest hand and mixed the two blushes together.
Then I sprayed some Fix + to set everything in.
I originally used Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria but it was just too brown for this. Then I took MAC Whirl and lined my lips, then filled it in with Huda Muse liquid lip. Later on I took Wet n Wild Mocha-licious and blotted it on top, then put some Dior Pink Lip Maximizer on top of it. Too much? Probably.
I realized at the end I hadn't done my brows. I took Glossier Boy Brow in Brown and ran it through my brows, then took my ABH Brow Wiz in Medium brown and filled in. I then took Maybelline Great Lash in clear to really feather them up some more. Then I took Dipbrow and redid my natural freckles. This freaked me out a little but after letting it rest it was good!
Then I realized I didn't like the way the black looked so stark, so I took my Smashbox Trio in Snap Queen and took the mauve on a small blending brush and buffed out the top part of my eyeshadow shape. Then I took a small pencil brush (mine is from IT) and buffed a little more. Then I took the excess on the same brush and ran it under my eye.
And that was it!
