I saw this gorgeous photo on the Beauty Crazed site and was so inspired, I thought I'd give the look a go and see if I could recreate it.
Please note: I am not a makeup artist, I don't have the same facial features as this model (though I wish I did), and I don't have the same products that was used on her (heck, I don't even know what was used on her). So obviously, my photos are not going to look anything like the original; but hey, I tried right? And it's all in good fun, anyway! Here goes nothing:
So I started off with MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre all over the lid up (to the brows) and formed the winged out shape from the original photo using MAC Fluidline in Macroviolet. Once that was done, I used the purple shade from Sleek MakeUP's Origina I-Divine palette to soften the edges a bit. I took the colour up to the brow bone and also softly buffed it up to the temple. Then I took Sephora brand eyeshadow in Aspen Summit and used it to highlight the brow bone and above the cheekbone. I also blended it onto the purple eyeshadow in the temple area. I finished the eye area with two coats of L'oréal Voluminous mascara.
For the face, I used whatever base was on hand (I think it was Revlon Beyond Natural) and used MAC Blush Ombre in Vintage Grape on the cheeks (I only used the lighter part of the blush). For the lips, I applied concealer first to tone down the pink shade that my lips naturally have. Then I used MAC Lipstick in Cherish and topped it off with Clinique Long Last Glosswear in Air Kiss.
This look as a lot of fun to recreate. I've been really enjoying trying to create and recreate different looks lately as I've been testing my skills to see if I have what it takes to go into makeup artistry (as a Plan B, of course).
What do you think?
Did I completely miss the mark
or was my finished look pretty accurate?
