PICTORIAL | Moonshine

I apologize for not having the time to post this pictorial when i said i would. I've had a lot of things going on at once. Being a mum IS a full time job i tell you.....there are no days off, and you can't afford to slack....at all!



Ok, so here is the pictorial, and as you know, pictorial posts are usually loaded with pictures which i took the pains of snapping step-by-step. If you noticed, my pictorials have become more detailed because i began including pictures of the products and tools i use so that it's all clear to you.



Most people complain of not having enough data to watch you-tube videos.....those are the people who pictorials would greatly benefit because it's mostly pictures and explanations.


First, i did my brows. If you have noticed, i no longer sculpt the top of my brows....i only do the bottom
Next, i picked up my NYX eyeshadow base in 'Skintone' 

Then i applied it all over my eyelids.....basically the areas where eye shadow will be applied.

Then i whipped out my Morphe brushes eyeshadow palette in 35N and used this brown shade in my crease to act as my transition colour.

Now applying the brown shade in my crease.

Done with the first brown shade

Then i went for a darker brown and applied in the crease also for a darker effect

I'm applying the eyeshadow in my crease using 'windshield-wiper' motions

I'm done with the crease colors.
Why did i use two browns in my crease, you ask? Why didn't i just go in with the dark brown since i wanted a dark brown effect?

Well, i needed the first (lighter) brown shade to set the base so that the darker brown will blend in easier.


Next, i picked up my Sleek eyeshadow  'Sunset' palette and used this black to contour the outer corners of my eyes. However, that wasn't the brush i used.

This is the brush i used to do the eye contouring.

Going in with the black eyeshadow.

I'm done contouring.
I don't know why, but for some reason, contouring my right eye doesn't always turn out like the left. The right eye is always lighter....i really don't know why.

Next, i used a fluffy eye shadow brush to pick up the Colorpop super shock eyeshadow in 'Moonshine'

Then i patted it on my eyelids.
The brush wasn't picking up the product as i wanted, so i used my fingers to finish up.

Done with the eyeshadow

Then i picked up my Zaron gel eyeliner in 'Jazz', and i applied it with my eyeliner brush.

Here, i had finished applying it on my upper lashlines and my waterlines
Then i highlighted my brow bones using this shade from my Estee Lauder eye shadow palette

Next, i fixed my Bee Lashes in 415 using my tweezer

And then, i set the concealer underneath my eyes after i applied my foundation and highlighted under my eyes

.......and i baked while i did my lips
I lined my lips with my Zaron lip liner pencil in 'Vivid', and then i filled in the lips with my L.O.G Cosmetics lipstick in 'Bare'.


I applied mascara on my lower lashes and the eyes are done!

That's all folks.....

Have a good night!

Besos.

  5. Very lovely and easy steps to follow, my question is do you apply powder before highlighting? Or you apply foundation then highlight and apply the setting powder? Thanks
