We gave another makeover recently to our housemate Maria(she has such beautiful features!). She normally doe not wear much makeup so this was quite a big change for her. We decided to go with a soft, pink/brown eye with no eyeliner and a bright pink lip. The warm tones of the makeup really helped brighten up her skin and soften her features. This is a perfect makeup for a date, movie night, cocktail or even for the daytime if you are more daring. Here are the steps:
1. I applied a light coverage foundation with a foundation brush. This helps blend the colors better, especially as I mixed two shades of foundation to make sure I get a good shade for her skin tone. Here is also a picture of The FabPalette makeover station 🙂
2. I apply a concealer that is 2-3 shades lighter than her skin on her eyelids and under her eyes, blending it with a concealer or buffing brush. Apply a darker concealer in the hollows of your cheecks and along both sides of your temple. With a large powder brush, apply some powder, concentrating on the ‘T’ zone to make sure the makeup lasts all day( forehead,nose and chin). I like to apply it in circular motions to buff it into the skin, so it blends better with the foundation.
3. Apply a shimmery white eyeshadow all over the lid and under your brow bone with a flat brush. Then apply a light pink eyeshadow in the crease with a fluffy brush and under the eye with a flat brush. Finish off by applying a brown color in a “v” shape , focusing on the outer part of the crease and two-thirds under the eye. Do with with a small flat brush, blending it in all the time or with a small pointed brush, doing the same thing. Take a bit of the brown under the eye as well. Line the upper lash line and two-thirds under the eye with a dark brown kohl liner, smudging it slightly with a fluffy brush.
4. Apply a bit of mascara, line the lips with a pink color and fill them in with a fuchsia pink lipstick. Remember, a lipstick such as this one with blue undertones in it will always brighten up the face and make the teeth look whiter 🙂
