tutorial: red-popping neutrals

I used-
NYX Milk
Soft Brown
Vanilla pigment
Satin Taupe
Espresso
Dazzlelight
Coppering
Solar White
W&W creme liner
L'oreal mascara
some falsies

1. I start off by doing my eyebrows and base.

2. Of course... Soft Brown in the crease with a 217.

3. Vanilla pigment on the lid.

4. I pack Satin Taupe on the outer lid.

5. Dazzlelight on the browbone. So this look isn't so frosty, I take Espresso e/s and my 217 and apply it lightly over Satin Taupe.

6. Coppering on the lower lash line.

7. To tone down the intensity of Coppering I apply Soft Brown on the inner lash line and Satin Taupe on the outer lash line over Coppering. I also applied Solar White in the inner corners.

8. Liner...

(I do my face in between these steps.)

9. Mascara...

Add some falsies, and we're done!


Thanks for looking!

  7. This is sooo pretty. I never thought coppering could be such a pretty color..LOL

    Clara could you do a post on your skin care regimen, what products you use and stuff like that? I know every skin is different and all, but it would be cool to see what you do use. =-)

    Have a nice Sunday.

  10. GS, I use a MAC 208. It makes applying liner so much easier!
