If you’re not a firm believer in the transformative power of makeup, then I guarantee you will be by the end of this post! As I’ve mentioned before, makeup is my favorite hobby and form of art because of all the potential that it posesses!
I mean RIGHT?! C’mon! Thats pretty amazing!
Anyways, This is what I had to work with the morning of the Hoedown:
I started with priming my face. I prefer hourglass primer because it makes your makeup water resistant. This is beyond important especially when you sweat like a grown man……
Primer: Hourglass Mineral Veil
Foundation: Revlon Airbrush Effect
Contour: Makeup Forever Sculpting Kit
Highlights: Dermablend cover creme (on under eye, forehead and nose)
Eyebrows: NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder and Benefit Gimme Brow
Eyelid, Crease and Under-eye: Urban Decay Naked Basics palette
Liner: Urban Decay Ink for Eyes for winged liner / waterline liner: NYX eyeliner pencil in white
Lashes: Ardell Natural
Mascara: Mary Kay
NYX red lipliner and Hourglass Icon
Also, let’s take a moment to talk about my eyes. This it’s something I picked up from the AMAZING Jaclyn Hill. It’s basically to produce a “doe eye” effect making your eyes look MUCH larger than they really are. Add this with a cut-crease technique and false lashes and bam! Disney princess eyes!!!
Essentially what you do is line you’re lower lash line from the outside going towards your nose. As you get closer to the inner corner you continue a straight line instead of following the natural curve of your eye. You fill it in with a white shadow, blend and you’re done!!
