Hey guys! This will be my first ever make up tutorial so forgive me if I miss out anything. However, if u do have any questions at the end of the tutorial please feel free to comment below.
So lets begin! I wore this look for my friend’s birthday party, so it’s a great party look perfect for a night out and events. Anyway, since I don’t really like to wear very thick make up, I thought I should share my experience with you guys on how to create this subtle yet sultry make up look.
Step 1. Prepare your face with a primer
Here I’m using Shu Uemura’s Tsuya skin Shupette collection. It comes in a mousse form so be careful with the amount you spray out, I made a mistake of spraying too much and wasted quite a bit… Just apply the base over your face, melting the product into your skin in a circular motion. The primer has UV protection and gives your skin a nice shine after application! Always handy when you are too lazy to apply sunblock on your skin.
Step 2. BB cream and concealer
Both products above I got from Korea! The laneige bb cream compact can be easily found in Singapore but it’s pretty pricey in Singapore, costing about $50. (Snagged this beauty for $30 in Korea) So a good alternative would be the innisfree bb cream compact, I usually switched between the two since the difference between the two is very little. The concealer on the other hand is unavailable in Singapore 😦 it’s from atrium! I know it’s beside the point to mention that it’s super amazing since most of us can’t buy it BUT IT’S THE BEST CONCEALER I’VE EVER USED! It’s really creamy and covers my under eyes really well. If ya’ll have any good concealers to recommend comment below k?
Step 3. Brows
I’ve given a step by step brow tutorial in my Silky Girl review which u can find here
Step 4. Eyeshadow Primer
I’m using urban decay eyeshadow primer in original
Step 5. Eyeshadow
Apply limit from the Urban Decay Naked 3 Platte all over your lids with a flat bush with a patting motion to transfer the most amount of product onto your lids. After doing so, use a fluffy brush to soften the edges.
The fluffy brush I’m using is from Stilla. It isn’t that great since it feels poky on my eyelids but it gets the job done.
Afterwards, I apply a darker shade from the Urban Decay Naked 3 Platte in nooner on the outer corner of the eyes with the opposite end of the urban decay brush (Idk what it’s called but it’s provided in the kit! Just use the fluffier side. Sorry 😦 ) And blend with a fluffy brush!
Step 6. Gold Liner
I applied NYX jumbo eyeliner in Rose Gold in the inner corners of my eyes and blended it inwards. I applied liberal amounts (don’t by shy about it, just apply, apply, apply!) if not the liner wouldn’t show. The gold really helps to open up the eyes and lighten the overall look.
Step 7. Mascara
It’s Lancome’s Doll Eyes! Curl then apply the mascara.
Step 8. Contour
I love bronzer, it goes with everything! ❤ I'm using a matt bronzer from Terracotta 4 seasons in 02 brunettes. I just apply it as how you would apply as a blusher, not just focusing under the cheekbones. Personally, I think this allows a more natural application and blends better into the skin. I applied the bronzer with eco tools blush brush.
Step 9. Blush
It’s a pretty peachy rue from shu uemura’s shupette collection in orange. It has a nice shimmery glow to the skin and compliments warmer skin tones. The end result after bronzer and blusher should look something like this:
Step 10. Lips
Since my eyes has most of the drama, I didn’t want so much attention to be drawn on my lip. The basic rule is that there should only be one point of focus on the face, either lips or eyes. Thus, it was only natural to pick this shade of pink by chanel in 43 la favorite. I rarely use nude lipsticks since it makes me look very tired, also giving me very ghostly. Thus, I usually pick shades of pink which are closer to my natural lip color. To apply, I dap amounts of my lipstick on my lips and proceed to smudge it across my lips. This gives an appearance of a stained lip rather than wearing lipstick.
You should end up with something like this, but do feel free to mix it up whenever you feel appropriate. Make up should be specific to you and your taste.
I hoped you like this tutorial and had fun trying out the look. ❤
