Here's a quick makeover similar to my previous one from a week+ ago, but with peach-toned colors.
By the way, despite the list of products used, both looks take approximately 15 minutes to achieve presuming you've understood the instructions I provided. I thought I'd try to make sure to mention when I use a brush or fingers, as perhaps for some fo you such details may provide helpful.
Indoor, with daylight influence:
And again under indoor and diffused, outside lighting (through a window):
As you can see, I have a slightly warmer look if I were to wear this outdoors.
Now as to what did I do...
1.) Since I began this session in late afternoon, I needed to clear off the natural oil that's released throughout the day from my face. I used a "micellar" solution (a cleansing liquid, and you can check out Wikipedia or other sites like this one to find out more about them) because it leaves no residue and your face feels normal after use. (Cotton pad application)
2.) As always, I used a base before my foundation (and today I tried a new foundation) and I simply put on a moisturizer, NUXE (an organic line) Fluide Merveillance (which is supposed to help for existing facial expression lines). I wouldn't say that my lines have reduced since using it (almost a year), but they haven't gotten worst and I like it's light texture. A little goes a long way! (Finger application)
3.) I contoured my face with Kett Fixx Creme Makeup (can be used as foundation, concealer, contouring, etc.) with shades: O1 for inner eye and under eye circles (I have always had dark under eye circles), the bridge of the nose & lower forehead areas; N3 for covering my red apple of the cheeks and any redness (which I've gotten with age); O7 for contouring around my upper forehead head near my hairline (since I have a high forehead); and O9 for under the cheek bones, jawbone (lower sides), and sides of the nose bridge and tip. I would recommend learning highlighting from Wayne Goss on You Tube or getting Kevyn Aucoin's book, "Making Faces". Once your learn how to contour, you really can sculpt and change your facial features, that is to say create an illusion of change with shadows.
4.) I tried a new foundation (sample I received from my local Sephora, thanks!), Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint in "Natural". It's perfect match for my skin color right now (after the summer) and likely will still do for the winter if I want a slight summer glow. I like the texture very much, it's not too heavy nor too light. However, you do feel like you have foundation on, so please use it sparingly. Here, I used a drop about the size of a used eraser tip of a pencil (ahhh, that means one, very small pump will do.) (Brush application; Makeup Geek foundation stippling brush, which feels compact, dense and not too scratchy, and evenly distributes liquid foundation. I think it would work for cream foundation too, but I have a tendency to use my fingers with creams.)
5.) Bobby Brown again served as the overall colorist for the face, as I used her Pot for Lips and Cheeks in "Hibiscus" (which is ever more so of a burnt peachy-orange than a true hibiscus red to me), but it gives a nice "pop" peach to the eyelid (yes, I did), high-cheek bones and lips. Again, this is very pigmented for a cream, so you barely need to tab it with your fingertip for each cheek, lid and lip. Lightly swipe each. (Finger application)
6.) Next, KIKO Infinity High Pigmented Eyeshadow (CLIC system) in "n°214" (a matte, light mocha brown) was swiped on the inner eye and upper brow area over the top of Bobby Brown's "Hibsicus" and the same brand KIKO eyeshadow in "n° 215" (a semi-matte brown with tiny orange irridescient "specks") placed in the outer lid corner, crease and outer brow, very slightly for day, add heavier for evening.) (Finger application)
7.) My lower and upper eyelids were lined close to the lash base with a beautiful metallic, burnt burgundy color, KIKO Glamourous Eye Pencil in "N° 403" (Hand with pencil application)
8.) I finished off the eyes (well almost, see next step) with a definite lash favorite, Givenchy Phenomen' Eyes Mascara in "n° 2 - Water Brown" (meaning waterproof). The tip looks like a medieval spike ball, which due to being round, works well in distributing the mascara on each individual lash and in a formula that for me has never clumped. (Hand with wand application)
10.) I highlighted my inner eyelid to inner upper brow area with GOSH Giant Sun Powder "n°001" using a Make Up Forever Professional Brush "n° 12S" (a flat, medium, rounded paint-like brush). I tend to use this brush A LOT for overall eyelid eyeshadow application. Also, I applied the GOSH bronzer as a highlighter under the eye and over the cheeks areas with the previously-used, Makeup Geek brush. (Brush application)
11.) Finally, I finished my lips, as remember they have Bobby Brown's "Hibscus" on them still. I covered them slightly with HEMA Sun Lipgloss spf 15 in "n°12214"(HEMA is a Dutch company that to me is an IKEA-like, general department store). Since this lipgloss will be really hard to find, it suffices to say you should find a soft peachy taupe gloss that glistens with rose reflections and opalescent tiny glitter. Yeah right. ;) Come on, you can do it! I topped the centers of my upper and lower lips with a final highlighting, NYX Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe in "Do the Hustle". (Hand with tip application)
Well that's it! Yes, truly it only took 15 minutes. Explaining it however, takes MUCH longer. ;) But I think it's worth it to share "real life" makeovers.
God bless and do have fun!
Note: I try to provide color descriptions so that even if you don't have the exact product, you should be able to come close to the results in my photos.
