I\’ve played it smooth for this eleventh Monday Shadow Challenge look : I\’ve chosen to work on my technique and to create a makeup similar to the ones you often see on American girls\’ Instagram accounts.
Golden Brown was an easy color to work with and I\’ve created a daytime look that you could also wear during the night. I\’ve chosen to do something simple and really take my time with each and every element on my face and I find the finished look so simple it\’s actually amazing.
The Eye Makeup
I\’ve used two eyeshadow palettes for this makeup I called Twisted Nude : the Marionnaud Our love is unique palette they released for Valentine\’s Day, a beauty that\’s still on their website and on sale at the moment and the Makeup Revolution Run Boy Run eyeshadow palette.
I started by defining and intensifying the crease with the two brownish matte eyeshadows from the Run Boy Run (second and third round eyeshadows). I then chose to apply the shimmery brown from Our Love is Unique on the whole of my eyelid except at the center where I applied the beautiful warm gold that\’s close in the palette. I understand it might be pretty difficult to tell which is which on the pictures.
Under my lower lashline, I first wanted to wear some turquoise but then I chose the reddish eyeshadow from the MUR palette to match the color of my lips that I applied and slightly blended.
Then, I applied two or three layers of the Fashion Professional Fat Lash Fibre mascara that would remind anyone of the famous Younique Mascara. I alternated between the mascara and the fibers to get a false-lash look because I actually own no false lashes. That is kind of a bummer when you want to create an American-like makeup look…
To finish the eyelook, I applied some average brown powder from the Pierre René Professional Eyebrow Set, brushed my eyebrows and then blended some of the Jelly Pong Pong Lighten Up pencil under them.
I applied some of the Yves Rocher macadamia lipbalm and then drew all over my lips with the Max & More Nude Lips lipliner. All I had to do left was applying two coats of my favorite lipstick these days : the Jordana Sweet Cream Matte in Tiramisu, an awesome lipstick that costs less than €5.
Working my face
You know how little I like wearing makeup on my skin. I\’ve made an exception here because I think it\’s impossible to create an american-like makeup without at least some makeup on your face.
I started by applying a layer of the SLA green Skin Primer and my Rimmel BB Cream. Then I applied some W7 Sand Dune blush, a beautiful orangey blush that\’s part of a collection designed for darker-skinned women. After that, I used the MUR Golden Lights highlighter on my cheekbones, between my eyebrows and a bit on my forehead, on my nose bridge, my philtrum and my chin. All I had to do left was applying some Ben Nye Neutral Set transparent powder that I love because it\’s so light.
I am way prouder of this makeup than of other more artistic ones I\’ve created in the past : I didn\’t know what result I would get and I\’m really happy with how beautiful it\’s turned out ! Plus, I have just discovered Photoshop : these pictures have been worked with Photoshop and I think they\’re great even though I still have to learn plenty of things before my articles get even more attractive !
