Makeup Monday: Brown Fade


(click for larger images)

Makeup used with the Lookmatic Shelby frames (use code keikolynn20 for 20% off through Dec 31st):

1) Too Faced Natural Eye palette (I used the middle “classic” row)

2) Urban Decay 24/7 liquid liner in Demolition

3) Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Demolition

4) Smashbox Blush in Heartbreak

5) Smashbox lipstick in Latte Matte

(I also used UD primer potion underneath the eyeshadows, Too Faced Beauty Balm in Vanilla Glow on my face, and MAC Studio Fix Lash in brown.)

For my second Makeup Monday installment with Lookmatic, I picked the Shelby frames in brown fade and pulled the focus toward the eyes. To keep my eyes from disappearing behind the lenses, I went with a smokey brown gradient that mimics the frames’ own fade. This is a look you can do in a handful of simple steps:

1) Apply primer from lid up to brow bone, and on lower lashline.

2) Sweep Silk Teddy (or another light, shimmery neutral) across brow bone and on inner eye.

3) pack Push-up (or a medium neutral) on lid.

4) Sweep Erotica (or a dark brown) in outer crease and outer v of your eye, bringing it down to your lashline at the outer corners. Blend, blend, blend. This should look like a seamless transition between the colors.

5) Line your upper lashline with liquid liner. For tips on creating a cat-eye, click here.

6) Line your lower lashline and waterline with pencil, then sweep Erotica (or dark brown) across your lower lashline. Blend, and add more liner if necessary.

7) Add mascara, blush, and lipstick. Now you’re done!

    What lipliner did you use?

      I’m not sure, since this was so long ago, but if I had to guess – it looks like Milani lip liner in “natural”
