If you haven’t noticed… I’ve been into color this summer. I fuck with it. Every color, any color, all the colors. It’s been a change from my typical warm brown, bronze makeup or my 5minute face. I blame the Reina Del Caribe palette. It’s changed me (for the moment) you guys.
On this day, I woke up like I do almost everyday, late and without a specific vision for makeup. I somehow wound up with this vibrant pink and orange halo cut crease with a glossy nude lip.
I always start my looks at my eyes, this way if I don’t like the way something looks I can wipe it away and start over without ruining a full face of makeup. This L’Oreal Brow Pencil is a staple beauty item for me, I can’t remember the last time I ran out of it and didn’t immediately repurchase it. The pencil is fine enough to create sharp lines, and soft enough to draw hair like strokes in for a fluffier brow. Then moving on to the shadow, in the crease I set down the pink shadow from the Zulu palette and blend it out with a matte apricot shade until the two are blended smoothly. With a matte burgundy shade, deepen directly in the crease where the first pink shadow was applied. This is one of the most important steps when creating a look with a cut crease. The shape that I make when I deepen the crease set pretty much sets up the shape for my cut crease. After getting the shape how I’d like, I take a white base, or a concealer on a small stiff brush and starting as close the the edge of the darkest shade, cut the crease and apply the concealer evenly all over the lid.
With a clean brush, apply the matte pink shade on the outer edges of your eyes in a slanted angle. Do the exact same thing with the metallic baby pink shade leaving a triangle shape in the middle of your eye for an apricot shade. Apply in the remaining area. Add mascara to your lashes and add falsies. Once finishing up on my top lid, I always jump to my face, this way I can add whatever I need to on the lower lashline last. I dunno, it works for me okay ?
I prime by patting a pore minimizing primer into the skin and let it sink in for about 5 minutes before applying my foundation and concealer.
One of my favorite tricks is mixing foundations to get the exact finish I want. The Remarcable Foundation alone is super full coverage but also super matte. Almost to the point that it’s drying on my skin. The Josie Maran Argan Oil Foundation is extremely dewy, so much so that I look like a huge grease ball wearing it alone. But these two together create the most beautiful flawless satin finish. Whenever I mix these together someone always comments on how smooth my skin looks. So I’m here for it.
And now onto the lips…and the inspiration for this blog title. Look at this GORGEOUS glossy nude lip? Seriously. Look at it. Never in my life have I been into a glossy lip, but this lip product makes me rethink everything. Thanks for stopping by guys, so what do we think about this look? Are you feeling the colorful vibes?
