First of all I have to say something about Kristen's Vogue Cover. I cannot believe I missed it. Gorgeous cover shoot she looks absolutely gorgeous, and next weeks makeup tutorial is covered!
Back today's tutorial. I loved her outfit and her makeup. Her makeup was usually how Kristen wears her makeup but there was something different and stunning about it. Credits to the look go to Jilian Dempsey.
PRODUCTS LIST Burberry Sheer Foundation in No. 1 Rimmel London Stay Matte powder in 003 Peach Glow Estee Lauder Blushes in No. 1 and Nude Rose Pixi Brightener Pixi Pink Lipgloss Too Faced shadows in "Lap Dance" & "In The Buff" Avon Supershock Gel Liner in Black Pixi Gel Liner in Onyx Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells Mascara in Black
FACE After exfoliating and moisturising my skin I applied my foundation in a light sheer layer. Kristen's face, as usual, is flawless so keep it natural. Once you've finished your eyes and brows, apply a bronzing blush to the cheek bones and a nude pink blush to the apples of your cheeks and set with a powder.
EYES Apply a primer if you wish now and apply "Lap Dance" or a medium brown or a warm brown colour to the entire lid right up to the brow bone. Apply this colour as a liner shadow on the lower lid. Next apply a pencil gel liner to the top lid from the outer corner to just over half way over your lid. Then blend. If you're using a gel liner this will be incredibly easy to do. Apply and blend until you get your desired colour although you want to keep it subtle especially if you're using a black liner like i did instead of a grey liner as Kristen has. Blend the liner into a subtle flick at the outer corner and into the inner corner.
Next using a fine liner brush, apply the pixi liner into a flick at the outer corner. I find it easier to find where the flick is meant to be by placing the end of a makeup brush at the tip of your nose and follow the handle to the corner of your eye and to the tip of your brow. Then, keeping this line in mind, apply the liner. i find it easy to apply the flick by starting on the outside and working my way towards the eye itself instead of drawing the flick out. Then using the pencil liner again, apply it softly to the waterline of the lower lid. Before applying mascara, apply a white or a soft, creamy white like "In The Buff" to just below the brow. Then fill in your brows if you need to and apply mascara.
BROWS For my brows i've used the colour "Unmentionables" by Too Faced and used an angled brush to apply it. To add more texture to your brows add a layer of clear mascara over the top.
LIPS Keep it natural, air on the side of nude pink or clear colours. A clever tip to make your natural lip look fuller, apply a brightening liquid like Benefit's High Beam/Moon Beam to the cupids bow and the skin just below your bottom lip and blend.
