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 applied a white base all over my lid.
  • So to start off with the eyeshadow I applied a mixture of both sage and moss, olivey colors, all over the base.
  • Using a small blending brush I applied Brown into my crease and also blended it into the green.
  • I then used my smudger brush to apply black eyeshadow from the outer corner going into the crease, I used blackout. 
  • Using my SOHO Blending Brush I blended all the colors for a seamless transition.
  • Now apply a highlight under the brows and I used sandalwood which is a light brown color and in the inner corner, I used a white eyeliner and went over it with a white eyeshadow.
  • Now line your tight-lined and line my waterline with a black eyeliner and also used the liner to line my upper lash line and lower lash line. I went over the liner with black eyeshadow to smoke it out 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 peach blush to the apples of your cheeks. 
  • For the lips I applied a nude lipstick and went over it with a light pink gloss.
