Making Faces

Making Faces: The Perfect Summer Party Look

What I Used:

under eyes: Make Up For Ever HD Concealer in 325

eyeliner: MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack

eyeshadow: NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Kuala Lumpur, NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Jolie  Poupee, MAC Eyeshadow in Blackberry

eye brows: MAC Brow Pencil in Fling

eye lashes: MAC Haute & Naughty Mascara

I tend to wear much less makeup in the summer.  Besides pure heat induced laziness, I’m usually a little more tan, so I don’t need to try so hard to not look like a ghost.  However, there are always those summer occasions – i.e. weddings, parties, etc – when I like to go the extra miles in the name of ‘fancy.’  This would be a go-to look for one of those occasions.

First I applied the light shade in the NARS Kuala Lumpur Duo to the lid from lash line into the crease and blended slightly above.

Next I applied the darker shade in the Kuala Lumpur Duo into the entire crease from outer to inner corner.

I then blended MAC Blackberry into the crease, on top of the darker crease shade I just applied.  Blackberry can go very dark so start by applying lightly, you can always add more shadow for a darker effect.

Next I applied MAC Blacktrack in a small wing to the  top lid and also to the upper and lower inner rims.

Then I applied the light Kuala Lumpur shade to the lower lash line and blended the shimmery purple shade from the Jolie Poupee Duo on top of it.

I finished the look with mascara.
