Makeup of the Day

The other day I had an event at night so I decided to go crazy with my makeup. Let me explain this before you see the photos, or else you are going to think I’m exaggerating haha, because this look, as you’ll see, is quite simple. I usually don’t use much makeup in my everyday (hence why I said I went crazy with the makeup). I’m happy with just a black mascara and a chapstick or lip balm, no foundation, no eyeshadow, no eye liner, only that. When I go out, that’s another story. I dust off my foundation haha, pop open my eye palettes, find my most pigmented lipstick, and try my best to do my makeup as professionally as I can (I’m still learning haha). 

For this look, first I applied a foundation primer since I needed my makeup to stay together for the whole duration of the event. I used Smashbox’s Photo Finish Color Correction. I love this product, it’s super soft and not at all greasy, definitely recommended. Next, I used Diorskin’s Nude Foundation, which is my current go-to foundation. I set the foundation with Clinique’s Blended Face Powder for a matte finish. To contour my face, I used MAC’s Bronzing Powder Refined Golden tone

After I finished with my face, I focused on the eyes, which is my favorite part. First, I used the Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I must say, I was amazed that at the end of the night, my eyes looked as if I had just painted them. This product is really effective! Then, I applied Urban Decay’s Naked Palette 3 Burnout eyeshadow all over my lid, which is a nice pink color with a bit of shimmer. For the outer half of the lid, I used the copper eyeshadow in the L’Oreal Colour Riche Quads Forever Bronze Eye Palette. This eye palette is incredibly pigmented and has nice rich colors. With a clean blending brush, I carefully blended the copper eyeshadow with the pink eyeshadow. Also, I added a bit of that copper color into the crease. Next, I applied the brown eyeshadow (not the darkest brown) of the same L’Oreal eye palette into the outer “v” of my eye to give it more depth. For the lower lid, I applied the copper eyeshadow, from side to side, and the brown eyeshadow in the outer half. Finally, I used the Maybelline’s Eye Studio Lasting Drama Black Gel Eyeliner to do a small wing. I find that using a gel eyeliner is easier than a pencil eyeliner. I feel that I have more control and that I can reach in-between the eyelashes. 

As for the lips, I used MAC’s Pro Longwear Lipstick in the color Till Tomorrow

*Sorry for the quality of the photos, I tried my best to find a good lighting so that the makeup could be appreciated. Also, excuse the modeling poses haha, I was trying to find the best way to show the eye makeup :P
