Look of the day/Tutorial – “Midori and Lemonade”

Hey Beauty Babes!

So this post today is pretty similar to my normal “look of the day”, except i’m going to give you a bit more of a breakdown, step by step, of what I did. Maybe one day I will be brave enough to do this in front of a camera, but for now, this will work!

Just a heads up: any time you are working with loose pigments, its best to apply your foundation SECOND. This makes it easier to clean up any fallout!.

Step one: Apply NYX eyeshadow base in White all over you lids (you could probably use NYX jumbo pencil in Milk).

Step two: Pat Sugarpill pressed eyeshadow in Midori over the lid (patting makes it more intense than just sweeping over the lid) until all the white is covered.

Step three: Sweep Sugapill Chromalust loose eyeshadow in Tipsy over Midori, and blend out into the crease.

Step Four: Blend Sugapill Chromalust loose eyeshadow in Absinthe into the crease, and out a little.

Step Five: Lightly sweep Sugapill Chromalust loose eyeshadow in Lumi on the brow bone.

Step six: Apply a little bit of NYX Jumbo pencil in black bean to the outer section of the water line.

Step Seven: using a eyeliner brush, apply Maybelline 24hr Colour tattoo Metal in Silver Strike under the eye.

Step Seven: Place Sugapill Chromalust loose eyeshadow in Tiara on top of Silver Strike, and take it out past the eye (like eyeliner).

Clean up time!

Step Eight: Whatever foundation routine you like to use can be used here – I was being lazy again and used Manic Panic Vampyre Veil in Midnight.

Step Nine: Apply false eyelashes (mine are just a generic cheapy brand that I can remember the name of).

Step 10: Apply mascara to blend the lashes together.

Step 11: Place a little bit of eyeliner over the lash band to blend it in: I used my Eyebooster.

Step 12:  Apply blush – I used my trusty Physicians Formaula happy boosting blush in Rose.

Step 13: Apply lipgloss – I recommend a pinky colour (Mine is an Avon lipgloss – the name has completely worn off).

Use whatever setting spray you prefer and you are done!
