How to Rock Brown Eyeliner

How to Rock Brown Eyeliner

Hello and happy Monday. I know that brown eyeliner is many people’s first (and only) choice, but it can get boring. I mean, I immediately think about “office looks” when I see a brown eyeliner. There is a way to make it fun, which is by pairing it with a vibrant eyeshadow. I paired it with blue, but you can do green, purple, or even red. These are the steps I followed for this look:

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Blue eyeshadow (eyelid base)
  7. Dark blue (outer corner)
  8. Blue pigment (center of the lid)
  9. Brown eyeliner (waterline)
  10. Mascara
  11. Contour
  12. Blush
  13. Highlight
  14. Nude lipstick
  15. Dewy setting spray

Happy Monday!

How to Rock Teal Eyeliner

How to Rock Teal Eyeliner

Hello and happy Monday. How are we liking this series? You know I love playing with makeup and any excuse to do so is valid to me. I also love when I’m being “pushed” to create a look with colors I don’t usually wear, especially not together. Today’s look is all about cool tones, and more than that, it’s super vibrant on the eyes but really muted on the face and lips because we need balance. These are the steps I followed to achieve this look:

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Purple pigment (eyeshadow base)
  7. Gray foiled eyeshadow (center of the lid)
  8. Teal eyeliner (lower lash line)
  9. Mascara
  10. Contour
  11. Blush
  12. Highlighter
  13. Nude liquid lipstick
  14. Nude shimmery lipstick (center of the lips)
  15. Dewy setting spray

What colors would you be hesitant to try together and why? Maybe you could inspire me to create a new look.

Happy Monday!

How to Rock Green Eyeliner

How to Rock Green Eyeliner

Hello and happy Monday. I feel like I haven’t written a Monday post in forever, even though you keep getting your weekly dose of makeup. Today and throughout the coming weeks, I will be showing you how to create entire makeup looks around a specific product. I wanted to start with green eyeliner because I think green is one of the least loved colors when it comes to makeup, and it can make a simple look really pop. I love green eyeliner because it makes my brown eyes look bigger and more intense, and who doesn’t like that. Here are the steps I followed to rock my green eyeliner:

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Bronzer
  7. Blush
  8. Highlighter
  9. Mauve (crease)
  10. Matte brown (center of the lid)
  11. Shimmery brown (outer corner)
  12. Green pencil eyeliner (tightline)
  13. Mascara
  14. Brown lip liner
  15. Brown lip gloss
  16. Dewy setting spray

Makeup For A Family Meeting

Makeup For A Family Meeting

Hello and happy Monday. Before doing this look, I’d been playing with lots of color in preparation for a post that will come to you soon, and that I’m very excited about. Last Sunday, however, I had a kid’s birthday party on the countryside, which made me go for this very natural but also very resistant makeup look. I think it held on quite nicely throughout the day. Below are the steps I followed to achieve it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Stick contour
  3. Foundation
  4. Concealer
  5. Powder
  6. Mauve (crease)
  7. Light pink (eyelid)
  8. Brown (outer corner)
  9. Brown eyeliner (tightline and top lash line)
  10. Mascara
  11. Bronzer
  12. Mauve blush
  13. Highlighter
  14. Lipgloss

“Corrective” Makeup

“Corrective” Makeup

Hello and happy Monday. Today I actually got up early-ish like a productive human being, packed my bags for a trip I had tomorrow, shaved, self-tanned and did my makeup because in a couple of hours I’m going to meet my best friends for lunch. Because I actually had the time and energy, I decided it would be fun to share with you a step-by-step routine I learned at my professional makeup courses to have flawless-looking skin. I personally don’t like the term “corrective” because I feel it implies there’s something wrong with a person’s face, but I do think that by following the routine you’ll get an even skin tone, less appearance of pores or texture, and an overall healthy look. Everything aside from the face makeup is up to you. I did apply mascara, lip gloss, a contour powder on the crease and powder highlighter on the lid.

  1. Primer
  2. Color correct large areas
  3. Foundation
  4. Spot concealing
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Cream highlighter
  7. Contour
  8. Powder (seal and bake)
  9. Blush
  10. Powder highlighter
  11. Eye primer

How would you complement this routine? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday!

Five Minute Makeup

Five Minute Makeup

Hello and happy Monday. I recently watched a video by Five Foot One Teacher in which she does her makeup in exactly five minutes. Doing my makeup in the morning is something I struggle with because I like to take my time and go full in, but obviously during the week I have to hurry for work, so the glam can’t be achieved. I made a list of the steps she followed so that I could try and challenge myself. Yes, I had time to add some eyeliner that wasn’t in the plan and then some more, but I’ll tell you this: even if it just takes you five minutes to apply your makeup you have to consider the time needed to get your products and tools ready beforehand, and then the time to clean up afterwards. These are the steps I followed:

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Bronzer
  7. Blush
  8. Light gold eyeshadow
  9. Mascara
  10. Tinted lip balm
  11. Setting spray

How long does it normally take you to do your makeup? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday!
