my semi formal is coming up faster than i have expected. today i planned out my entire make-up look for the evening. i took pictures of everything i will be using. here it is:
First I will apply Make-Up Forever's HD Primer and Revlon PhotoReady Foundation.
Next, I will apply GOSH Liquid "Touch Up" Concealer on my lid and under-eye area. It is best to use a liquid concealer for these areas because they are so delicate. I will also use GOSH Cream Concealer to remaining any blemishes.
Then, with a Kirkland by Borghese flat-top brush I will apply Hoola by Benfit. By using a 3/reverse 3 motion the bronzer will give you a glow in all the places the sun will naturally hit- the forehead, the cheeks and the chin.
With a MAC 129 brush I will lightly apply and layer NARS Orgasm and Luster. This will give you subtle, rosy glow.
Next, I will apply MAC Bare Study Paint Pot all over the lid using a MAC 239 brush. Over this, I will then apply the lightest shade in the above Lancome quad- Latte.
Using a MAC 217 brush I will lightly apply MAC eyeshadow in Print in the crease. I will also using just the tip of my brush apply the black eyeshadow from the Lancome quad to the outer corner of my eye. This will create a more dramatic effect and add depth to the eye.
I will use an angled liner brush also from Kirkland by Borghese and apply a creme black eyeliner (this one is from Smashbox). I will create a thin line on the upper lash line. I will then line the waterline half-way using Make-up Forever's Aqua Eyes eyeliner in black. Finally, I will use DiorShow Mascara in Black. This mascara is great for thickening and lengthening.
Using a Sugar Kabuki Brush I will apply Make Up Forever's HD Finishing Powder all over my face. This will reduce shine throughout the night and set my make-up to a silky finish.Since the dark eyes are the focus of this looks, I am going for a neutral looking lip. I will apply MAC lipstick in Faux and Clinique lip gloss in Glamourful.
To prevent my make-up from looking over powdery, I will spray Fix+ onto my Sugar kabuki brush and dab it on my eyes and any other powdery areas. I try to avoid any areas that get oily when doing this.
I will put up pictures of this look on Saturday- my semi formal is on Friday. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and let me know what you think in the comment below. :)
