Sweet N' Sexy Tutorial
Hi hi! I bet ya'll thought I forgot how to do makeup. Don't worry, I didn't. I've just had allergies and then beel ill. It's time to get pretty again, kids!
So, obviously, start out with your products. MSC Optimus Primer eye primer, NYX White shadow base, MSC Dame, Hello, Sweetie, and Mune Glow. UD 24/7 in Perversion, IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes, and MUFE Smoky Lash.
Brushes! I only use three today. An angled shadow brush, a floofy shadow brush, and a relatively pointed crease brush.
Prime your lids. Add the shadow base. Line your lower lash line pretty heavily with UD 24/7 Perversion. You want it DARK. Oh, and have coffee, so you don't make the face I'm making.
A close-up of how opaque you want your shadow base.
Start out with Dame. You're going to use your floofy brush for Dame.
Pat Dame pretty heavily on the inner third of your eyelids.
Now take your pointed crease brush and Hello, Sweetie. I love this pigment. It's a pressure sensitive pink that reminds me of cherry blossoms, and it's a matte. Yes, friends, I use a matte on a regular basis. MSC's matte base goes on like BUTTAH, though, so I don't seem to have texture issues like I do with other mattes.
Pat Hello, Sweetie on GENTLY on the rest of your lid. You want to retain that light pink color. Once you've done that, take the point of your crease brush, and apply pressure to the outer third of your lid so it darkens up. Don't worry, the pressure-sensitive transition from the two colors is pretty seamless, so you don't really need to try and blend. If you did, you'd lose the light pink. You're going to pull Dame evvver so gently into Hello, Sweetie, too.
Now your Mune Glow and angled shadow brush. Mune Glow looks off white in normal lighting, but in direct sunlight it gives off this coral orange hue. Trust me, it's understated and positively STUNNING.
Run your Mune Glow from your inner duct to your brow. Don't pat this color, you want to swipe. That way there's no fallout into the Dame/Hello, Sweetie combo that you have to try and deal with. You can *very* *gently* pull a little of it down into Dame/Hello, Sweetie in order to avoid a line of demarcation, but remember that Hello, Sweetie is VERY pressure sensitive.
Add your mascara(s). I was experimenting today with two different brands that I've gotten super lush results with... the outcome was that I don't like to blend them.
The final look!
A nice shot of that dark eyeliner.
Here's lookin' at you, Kid.
A very good closeup of Mune Glow!
I promise I won't stay away so long the next time, and remember...
Stay Madd, Darlings!!!!!
