step 1: prime – I primed my skin with nivea men’s shave balm to give a smooth base and ensure my foundation lasted all day.
step 2: foundation – I used l’oréal pro flow for a flawless full coverage look.
step 3: concealer – I took UD naked skin on my under eyes, eyelids, chin, cupid’s bow, center of the forehead, and down the bridge of my nose to highlight. I set my concealer with mac emphasize and ABH banana powder to ensure it stayed really light and glowy.
step 4: contour – I wanted a really strong defined contour so I started with a cream contour stick from smash box and then blended that out with ABH mink. I didn’t blend it into a natural look I left it really strong and draglike.
step 5: blush – I wanted my cheeks to have a really circular intense pop of blush only on the apples so I took a rounded brush and becca sweet pea and packed it on my cheeks without blending so it would stay in that circle shape.
step 6: shadow – I packed MUG mirage all over my eyes for a neutral base and because shadows blend more easily over other shadows. I took a fluffy brush and blended ABH dusty rose all over my crease. I blended mac cranberry on top of that to begin to deepen the eye look. I packed MUG bitten and coca cola on the outer v and lower crease of my eye but it wasn’t as purple as I wanted so I packed deep purple from lorac in the outer edge of my eyes as well. I brought the purple shades in about 1/3 of the way over my lid to create some depth and smoke. I took a bullet crease brush and blended MUG corrupt in the very outer v to make it even smokier. I used a flat liner brush to take corrupt and deep purple under my eyes and used bitten and coca cola on a pencil brush to create a really drawn out lower lash line. I packed violet voss loose glitter on the inner 2/3 of my lids.
step 7: mascara – I didn’t apply any liner cause I wanted my lashes to be emphasized. I used mac gigiblack mascara because it’s my favorite to darken my lashes before applying falsies.
step 8: lashes – I used ardell 203 lashes because I wanted crazy over the top drama. I used duo brush on glue because it’s the easiest to apply on the lash band without creating a huge mess.
step 9: brows – I wanted black dramatic brows so I used ABH creme color in jet to fill in my brows.
step 10: triangles – I used ABH jet liner to create the triangles above and below my eyes. I drew the outlines first to make them even and then filled in the triangles. I dipped the end of my brush into the gel liner and pressed it on my cheeks to create the little circles on the end of the triangles.
step 11: lips – I wanted a really angular vamp lip. I used a liner brush and ABH jet to draw a triangular cupid’s bow above my own and draw on a long thin smile. i filled in my lips with the liner and then pat colourpop panda in the center of my lips with my finger to add a little dimension and bring the purple from the eye look back into the lips.
