I think I kind of lack the confidence and because my eyes are really big, it never really looks subtle. For a long while I just thought I looked like I should be on Ru Paul’s drag race whenever I had eyeshadow on. So instead of turning myself into a laughing stock (or a Drag diva) I played it safe and stayed well away.
So this weekend gone, I had an engagement party to go to and I thought I’d give it a go myself. you know, just to try it and you know what, I was honestly surprised at how I didn’t do too bad a job!
Unfortunately I didn’t film a tutorial as I’m not on Youtube and I didn’t get a chance to take step by step pics either, mostly because I wasn’t planning on sharing photos but also because let’s face it, this could’ve gone very very badly! So instead I thought I’d do a quick run down of all the products I used to create this look and where to buy them.
Concealer – MAC Prolong wear in shade NC15
Inglot AMC Brow Liner Gel in shade 17
Transition shade – MAC Red Brick
Inner corner – Urban Decay Kinky and Freestyle from the smoked palette
Outer Corner – Urban Decay Blackout from the smoked palette
Highlighter – Makeup Revolution ‘Golden lights’ from the Highlight Palette
Bronzer – H&M in shade Gorgeous Tan
In attempt to push me to practise a little bit more, I’ve decided to keep this as a regular series called ‘MakeUp BreakDown’. I know I have a long long way to go and I got to work on my blending A LOT but I’ll get there some day and I can’t wait to look back at these photos and see just how much I’ve progressed.
Don’t forget to let me know what you think. Constructive criticism welcome x
