Summertime Splash (Updating!)

Summertime Splash (Updating!) - student project

I am so glad I found these tutorials because they have been very helpful in breaking me out of a makeup rut I have been stuck in for years! This has been an immensely helpful experience and has built up my confidence to try bolder makeup now that I have the techniques to do it with.

With that said, I had so much fun in this class and would like to share all three looks I created.

I love the way this final look turned out! I followed the tutorial and used these products to create this look

FACE: Makeup Forever (MUFE) HD primer, foundation, and powder applied.

EYES: 

Dark-brown Hello Kitty eye pencil in (‘Chocolate Milk’) applied on inner upper and lower lash lines

Medium shade of yellow-green, pear-colored shadow placed on entire lower lid with Bella Pierre mineral powder ('Discotheque')

Darker shade of forest green shadow applied to inner and outer corners of the eye - Bella Pierre ('Evergreen')

Green-colored eye pencil used to line outer upper and lower lids with Sephora (‘kaki green’)

Lightest shade shadow in yellow-gold applied to center of lower lid, using Bella Pierre (‘Joyous’)

Curled lashes and applied two coats MUFE Smoky Lash Mascara

LIPS: Started by outlining lip with a mauve-pink shade (ELF lip liner), then added Sugar Lip Treatment as a base and finished with a small bead OCC Lip Tar ('Kava applied with lip brush.

CHEEKS: Placed one small dot on apple of each cheek using NARS ‘Orgasm’ Illuminator and blended w/ fingertips. Then with a brush, used a little Stila ‘Gold’ Illuminating Finishing Powder under outer eye-corners above cheekbones.
