Get The Look:
  • Apply your face primer before you start to apply your eye-shadow primer that way it would have sunken into your skin and your will be ready for you to apply your foundation. 
  • Apply an eyeshadow primer or if you don't have one apply a concealer and go over it with a bit of powder.
  • I line from the inner corner to half way on the lid with a white eyeliner and for the rest of the lid I used a blue eyeliner.
  • Then I just went over the liners with an eyeshadow in the same color.
  • Now apply a highlight under the brows and in the inner corner.
  • Then I just tightlined with a black eyeliner, and then add some mascara. 
  • Using a stippling brush apply your foundation to your face.Blend it in and remember to put some on your neck. Next apply a powder to set in your foundation. For this I used the stippling brush.
  • Taking a contour brush begin to contour your face, place it at the hollows of your cheek, temples, both sides of your nose (optional) and along your jawline. This of course if optional and it will make your face appear slimmer.
  • Now using your blush brush begin to apply a light mauve blush to the apples of your cheeks. 
  • For the lips I first filled in my lips with a red lip liner, added a red lipstick and just to enhance the color I went over with a red lipgloss.
