Hey loves! I am so excited to be sharing a makeup tutorial on my blog again. This is where modmuses started, so I am so excited to be doing it. I am collaborating with the incredibly talented, Brianna Lynn today! Her blog is super fun, and her makeup looks are stunning. I am going to be showing you all how to do a dramatic eye paired with a bold lip. This is something that seems very daunting to some people, but it doesn’t have to be! I love a nice bold eye look with a hot red lip. I think that it exudes confidence! Let’s get started, shall we?
Super important first step! Hydrated skin! My skin was fairly clear, minus a few spots here and there(like the nice crater on my chin). My skin is quite tricky in the winter, so I have to keep it extra hydrated! I like using face oils that absorb quickly into my skin, and I love this eye cream from Pur~Lisse. I like to pop some eye cream on my lips as well as my under eyes and smile lines! This product is almost the texture of a primer, so I love to use it to really hydrate and prime certain areas.
For my face makeup, I am using cream products! This is something that I only really do during the winter. I love using this cream foundation palette from ELF for a super glam finish, or I will even sheer it out on my cheeks for a natural look. I like to prime my lids for glam makeup just to ensure seamless transitions. I have also started color correcting a little bit more than I used to, and I am obsessed. I like to finish my skin off with some contour and highlight from the ABH contour cream kit!
I like to follow up with some powders! Highlighting is super important for a glam look like this, so I like to mix a few to get the perfect texture. I don’t like a chunky glitter highlighter for winter just in case of flash photography. I like a subtle sheen, think slightly sweaty. I also follow up with my cream contour with a warmer toned shades that I pop in my cheekbones. I also lightly powder any breakouts/textured areas with the It bye-bye pores powder.
This step may seem silly to some, but it can make you feel way more confident if you struggle with acne! I like to take this brow pomade from Chella Beauty and pop it on my spots. This is such a basic step to the routine, but it can make such a huge difference to a look like this.
I am a fiend for blushes, especially warm rosy tones. I like to enhance my natural rosiness. These are a few of my favorite blushes for winter. As you can see they’re very neutral tones with slight sheen to them. I ended up using the Pacifica duo today!
I like to do my brows a slightly more defined shape as well. I like to use powders for this! Like this taupe shadow from The Balm, along with the ELF brow powder duo!
Red lips are so intimidating! But they really don’t have to be. This lip from Trestique is my absolute favorite red. I like to outline my lips with it, and really get a shape drawn out. I find that overlining red lips is not a very good look for me, so I like to simply follow my natural lip line. This is fairly easy to do, here’s a tutorial to help you! Basically you want to look at your lips, and decide if you want to follow the shape of your colored lip line or that slightly pale lip line. And go all in without worrying about overlining.
