Today, I did another pretty dramatic look. I wanted to do the dark lips again! :)> I mixed classic dramatic colors in with a pop of gold shadow on the eyes for a modern twist, and a classic red lip. Here is the look:
This look didn't come out how I had wanted it to, but I still decided to post it with a tutorial:
First, I primed with my Elf Primer in Alabaster.
Next, I picked up some of the beige color that is the bottom color in the first row in the Elf 100 Color Palette with my Mary Kay Eye Blending Brush.
I swept on the beige for a base color.
I then picked up the first color in the yellow section in the 100 Color with my IL MAKIAGE Fluff Brush.
And swept it on the lid, and blended some of it in the crease.
Next, I took the gold color below the one used before with the same brush.
I softened up the bright gold with the other gold.
Then I picked up a MAC bitter-chocolate brown with a contour brush.
I patted the color on the outer part of the lid.
And blended it up to the brow bone, and very slightly blended it in.
For mascara, I used Elf's Lengthening and Defining Mascara in Black.
For blush, I used the only reddish eye shadow from The 100 Color Palette.
To start the lips, I took out my L'Oreal Infallible 6HR Lip Liner in Red/Wine.
I began lining at the cupid's bow.
I thickened the line, and lined all around.
Then I filled in.
I next got out my Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie in Goodness Grapecious.
I hope you liked this dramatic look! (If you have any requests or ideas, just let me know!) <Lucy
