Sultry makeup

I know that this is the kinda look that's all over blogs and YouTube, but what the heck. =P I whipped this look up in less than 5 minutes in my head, and another 10 or so minutes to get it on.

What you will need:
  • Concealer and/or foundation
  • Blusher and/or contour product
  • Eyelid primer
  • Dark grey eye shadow (for lining and brows)
  • Metallic black shadow (for winging)
  • Matte royal purple shadow
  • Shimmering white shadow (for highlighting)
  • Matte beige shadow (to help with blending)
  • Mascara and/or false lashes
  • Cosmetic lenses that give the smouldering look to your eyes XD
What you need to do:
  1. Prep your face with your normal skincare routine, then concealer and/or foundation. Remember to set the product with powder if you're using liquid.
  2. Apply some primer on your lids. This will help keep the shadow crease-free, help it stay on longer and make the colors even more vibrant!
  3. Take the purple and blend it all over your lid. Be careful though, purple is a tricky color to work with. The color should be lighter at the inner corners, darkening toward the outer.
  4. Use an angled brush and line the entire upper lash line with the dark grey shadow. Use the same color and same brush to darken your brows.
  5. Take the metallic black with the angled brush, and make a winged line starting from the centre of your lids.
  6. Get a blending brush, the beige color and blend this right above the purple, blending into the color a bit.
  7. Use the shimmering white to highlight the browbone and the inner corners.
  8. Curl your lashes and apply mascara and/or false lashes. Remember to coat the bottom lashes as well.
  9. Using a skin-toned blush or a contour product to contour your cheeks and nose.
  10. Finish off with a nude lipstick or gloss.
