Hey, guys! First of all I want to say a massive I’M SORRY because I said a few weeks ago that I was going to be posting more often, and that didn’t happen
In reality, I’ve had the photos for this for about 2.5 weeks but I was nervous to put it up, and I’m not sure why
Just want to put it out there, though – my brows look terrible. They were in serious need of a wax but I just didn’t have the time
Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy my first tutorial-type post!
Step one: Apply the primer of your choice, whatever works for you will be fine. I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Step Three: Using a fluffy blending brush (something similar to Sigma’s E30 or E40), put through a slightly darker brown into your crease and blend above
I used Latte by Makeup Geek for this
Step Four: Add an even darker brown, continuing to blend where you just put Latte by
For this, I used Mocha by Makeup Geek
Step Five: Now we’re adding the warmth! You want to use a really warm, deep burgundy shade. Adding little bits at a time, blend this through your crease, using something slightly more precise than the E40 (What we used earlier) – I used the Sigma E45 to place the colour where I wanted it and then used the Makeup Geek Soft Dome Brush to diffuse the colour
I used Bitten by Makeup Geek
Make sure you’re bringing your warm shadows into the inner corner a bit – not too much, but enough so that it looks blended and diffused
Step Six: Next, I went back into both Mocha and Bitten with my E45 brush and connected the end of my shadow to the corner of my eye, to give a nicer shaper to the shadows and my eyes. I did this mostly because I wasn’t going to be adding any eyeliner, so this is how I decided to add some more dimension
As you can see, there’s a blank space in the centre of my lid, so next we’ll be filling it in
Step Seven: Taking any sort of flat shader brush, or your finger, take Grandstand by Makeup Geek (This is a foiled eyeshadow) and softly pat it onto the centre of your lid. Next, take a brush and slowly and carefully blend out the edges of Grandstand so that it doesn’t look too harsh on the lid
Step Eight: Taking a Flat Definer Brush (Sigma E15 is what I used), mix the colours Bitten and Mocha together and bring both colours underneath your lower lash line and blend out softly with a clean pencil brush
Step Nine: Just to add some more dimension, I then took a tiny amount of Corrupt by Makeup Geek and blended it through the outer ‘V’ of my eye and slightly through my crease
I hope you guys enjoyed this and it helped some of you out!
