Hi! Today I’m doing a tutorial on the picture below. I saw it in a study book from my school and it think it’s gorgeous. It’s a very simple 90’s look especially with the lips. All products I used will be listed and linked after the tutorial.
Disclaimer: The image that inspired me to do this tutorial – above and featured image – is from a QC Makeup Academy book. I do not own the photo.
Step one: Start with a clean, preped face. Do your brows and apply an eye primer.
Step two: Apply a skin tone eyeshadow to your lid.
Step three: Apply a warm brown to your crease, blending upward.
Step four: Apply a meticallic gold eyeliner to the lashline. Blend out. Apply a gold eyeshadow in a similar color.
Step five: Apply a metalic bronze to the lashline. Repeat step four and five on the lower lash line.
Step six: Apply same metalic bronze onto the lower waterline. Really work it into the lashes
Step seven: Apply foundation, concealer etc. Remember to keep your complexion matte and bronzed. If you use a highlighter (I did) make sure it’s a natural glow. Also, I didn’t apply mascara because I didn’t feel it was needed.
Step eight: Add a matte highlligher on the inner corner.
Step one: Apply lip balm to hydrate. Let that rest for at least five minutes.
Step two: Remove lip balm with a tissue. Apply a nude lipliner.
Step three: Apply a brown metalic lipstick, using a lip brush.
Step four: Apply gold eyeshdaow on the middle of lips.
