Last Thursday was Festa del Papa (Father’s Day). So, I decided to wear a makeup look that my baby-daddy aka my husband would like. I went for a very subtle glamorous look. I absolutely love this look, not only it looks great on all skin tones, and eye shapes, it is super quick and easy to create. Plus my hubby liked it too. This look is perfect for casual too formal occasions. You won’t ever feel over-done with this one. Whenever you are confused as for which makeup look to wear this one is the way to go. As spring is approaching I’m getting more drawn to oranges and other colors. So I added a pop of color in my makeup by using a orangey coral lip shade. Even though the top I wore it with was orange too, but it all went together nicely. I’m not a big matchy matchy person, in fact I rarely ever go for matchy matchy stuff but this one had me in awe. In this blog I will be sharing how I created this look and what I wore with it,
For the very first step I highlighted my browbone using “bootycall” from urban decay naked 2 palette, which is a slightly shimmery vanilla shade. Any shade close to that would work, as I always say you do not need to use same exact products. After that for my lids I used “half baked” from urban decay original palette. It is a metallicy gold shadow, any gold shadow would work. Just swipe it on your lids, and you do not need to be precise with it.
It’s time to add the crease shadow, to add depth and definition to the look. I used “Buck” and “Naked” from original naked palette to create a nice blended out look. Buck is a matte brown eyeshadow and “naked” is a lighter shade of “buck”. And I blended out almost till my browbone. Normally I do not take the shadows above the crease, but when I want really really blended out effect I blend the shadows above the crease as well.
For 3rd step I applied “black out” from urban decay naked 2 palette, in the outer V and blended out slightly in half of the crease. Make sure you do not end up creating a sharp cat eye like effect in the outer V. Make it as subtle as possible. Apply the shadow in layers and build it, do not blend it outwards. This look is all about subtle glam. After you are done laying the shadow in the outer V, use the same brush without adding any more product and swipe it on to the lower lash line.
After I am done with all the eyeshadows. It’s time to add a very subtle winged eyeliner. As you can see the picture I kept the line super think in the inner corner of the eyes and as I went outwards I created a very subtle wing.
Then I rimmed the inner lashlines with black pencil. And to finish this look applied few coats of mascara. In the end I just did not the gold eyeshadow to be so yellowy so I added the mary lou manizer highlighter from The balm on top of the “half baked”.
I used a matte lip lacquer from Astor to pair with this look. Matte lips is a huge trend right now. Some matte lip products can be super super drying to the lips and uncomfortable to wear. What I love the most about this lip lacquer is not only the shadow of it but also how comfortable it is to wear and how smoothly it goes on lips. Doesn’t make your lips rough and chapped and that’s always a plus point when it comes to matte lip products. The shade I wore is called “205 all about style”.
The top I am wearing is actually a jumpsuit, and it is from H&M, Jeans is from Levi’s, Ear studs from Swarovski and Shoes are from Haroon’s.
I hope you found this post helpful.
Good Luck !
