Pictorial Tutorial: Green+Purple (scary nekkid face ahead, enter at your own risk)

I'm REALLY not that creative. LOL! As promised, here's a look I came up with.

Yes, this took me forever and a half. This is why I don't do tutorials.

So, let's get started with a clean moisturized face.

Use your foundation of choice. Mine is NYX The Make-Up foundation in Buff. It's actually pretty decent. Review coming up in June.


I like to use 187 to stipple it on.


Then my trusty concealer Coverblend by Exuviance in Beige. My HG!


You don't need a lot. I use a pea size for my entire face! Dab on your imperfections and blend out.



Set with a translucent powder. I used Ben Nye Banana visage poudre.


with the big-ass MAC 134.



Your "base" is good


Now to add some color to your skin. I used MAC bronzer in Refined Golden w/ Mineral Hygienics powder brush.


Fishy face anyone? Apply the bronze underneath your cheekbones for that sculpting look.


Can you tell the difference? bronzer on left, no bronzer on right.


Then pick up MAC Blooming blush (my new fave!) and smile for the camera! Put the blush on your apples.



Now my fave part! Highlighter! My ultimate fave is MAC MSF in Shimpagne. WHY did I only get one?!!!


Put the highlighter on the bridge of your nose, and on top of your cheekbones.



Next, take some of that green from the Ben Nye Grand Luminere color wheel, and use it as a base on your lid.


It doesn't have to be perfect.


I looks so tragic w/o eyebrows...


Take a shimmery teal color (similar to MAC surreal) from the Black Radiance Blazing Beauty quad and apply it on top of the green base. Blend it out.




Take a shimmery white w/ gold duochrome and use it as a highlighter. Blend it w/ the teal.



Then, take a shimmery black. Mine is from TKB Tradings, I don't really remember the name...Sorry. Think MAC Dark soul pigment.


Put it on the outer V. BLEND!


W/ the black on right, w/o on left


Both on!


Take a shimmery Gold. Mine is TKB Trading called Radiant Gold.


Put it on your inner tear duct.


You can't really tell in the pics, but it brightens up your eyes.


Next up, my love....Stila Smudgepot in Black. I'm on my last pot. If Stila doesn't come back in business soon, I will be officially screwed.




Next, I take my UD 24/7 liner in Lust and liner the outer 1/2 of my undereye,




Then, I take TKB Trading in Patagonian Purple and layer it on top of the liner for more "Oomph".




Then I put on Shiseido Mascara Base, which turned Maybelline Great Lash mascara into non-utter poop.


Then I use Rimmel Lash Maxxxx mascara. It's great at definition due to the comb brush.


Finished Eye Look! I accidentally did my brows w/o taking pics. Oops!


Lips! Revlon l/g in Power Walk Pink + MAC Reflects Red glitter=Home made dazzleglass!





Juicy! I don't need you, $18 MAC Dazzleglasses! You can suck it!
Note: For glossier effect, please add a clear gloss on top, such as Lancome JT and MAC Clear Glass. The stickier the gloss is, the shinier it gets.


Final look!





Eye close up!



Last but not least.....
LMAO!


Thank you for patiently look over 9876514 pics. Be warned that you will NOT see this in the near future. LOL!

Thanks!
Tao
