Picture this: you’ve been invited to a fun event and you’ve found the most stunning dress and heels. You even narrowed down your preferred hairstyle. However, after trying on the outfit, you’ve realized that you haven’t figured out what kind of makeup look will suit the occasion. Do you go for minimal and playful or daring and bold?
This is my go-to glam makeup look. I’ve created a makeup look that’s suitable for any occasion, no matter the time of day. I have brown eyes and my skin has a yellow undertone. To determine what kind of shade(s) best fit your undertones, check your veins. Look at whether they appear blue or green. If they appear blue, it means you have a cool skin tone and if they appear green, it means you have a warm skin tone. Nonetheless, anyone can rock all sorts of colors on their eyes. It’s all about what makes you feel confident!
1—Brows: I used the Elf Cosmetics Lock On Liner and Brow Cream to define my brows.
2—Eyes: The Morphe Brushes 35O Palette is my holy grail palette; it immediately caught my eye because of the beautiful mix of warm neutrals. The eyeshadows are pigmented and blend smoothly. For my eye look, it’s all about blending and packing on different shades of oranges, reds, and browns. Then, I pop a shimmery shade in the middle of the eye. If it doesn’t come out right the first time, don’t worry; that’s why there are makeup wipes. Practice makes perfect!
3—Face: I used the Aveeno Daily Moisturizer, Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, Too Faced “Born This Way” Foundation, Tarte Cosmetics Shape Tape Concealer, Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder, Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette, Wet N’ Wild Coloricon “Apricot in the Middle” Blush, Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in “Champagne Pop,” and the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
This line from Too Faced has a variety of colors, so I’m sure you’re able to color match yourself. It’s a medium to full coverage and looks flawless on the face. I use a beauty sponge to apply this foundation evenly onto my skin.
4—Lashes: I used Maybelline’s Volum’ Express The Colossal Big Shot Mascara and then put on my Ardell Demi Wispies Lashes.
Ardell was the first brand I tried when it came to false eyelashes. Truthfully, I never knew why people applied falsies until the day I tried them on. This brand is great for beginners; they’re affordable and reliable.
5—Lips: I applied the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in the shade “Lovebug.” I stumbled upon this brand on Instagram; I’ve purchased many of their products and they do not disappoint. You know you use a makeup product a lot when the labeling rubs off, am I right?
