yellow liner tutorial

It’s easy to bring some color to your makeup with small adjustments. This time I ditched the classic black liner and replaced it with bright yellow. Apart from the yellow liner this makeup is very classic – a go-to makeup, that I wear all the time.

I used products, that I got to choose from eleven*.

I’ve been obsessed with the Beauty School Dropout Freshman palette. It’s super versatile! It can be used as a highlighter, contour, bronzer and a blush. And you can do your brows with it! I’ll probably post about it later, because I’ve been super inspired by it and done a lot of crazy looks with it (snap family knows).

I’ve also found a new favorite foundation: Milani’s Conceal+Perfect! Now that I’ve used it for a couple of weeks I can say that it’s pretty awesome. I would compare it to Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Makeup (that I just posted here). It’s full-coverage with a matte finish and it’s very long lasting. The price is obviously cheaper, so it’s a great dupe for Double Wear.

Let’s get to the tutorial! For my Finnish readers: You can find a discount code to eleven.fi at the end of this post.

Before and after Milani’s Conceal+Perfect Foundation. I love it! I recommend using a damp beauty blender for application. The foundation has a concealer in it too, so it’s a bit thick.

  1.  Apply a thin layer all over your face (including your dark under eye circles!) and blend the edges well.
  2.  Apply a second layer of the foundation for the areas that need more coverage, such as pimples.

Here is the finished makeup base. Contour, highlight and bronzer are all done with the NYX Professional Makeup Beauty School palette. Blush is Milani’s Pink Delizioso.

Eye makeup

  1. Apply a primer and set the primer. I used a matte white and a light pink eye shadow to get a light and an even base.
  2. Start to contour your crease with a light brown shade. The placement depends on your eye shape. This is the lightest shade of the contour, so you can blend it to a larger area.
  3. Deepen the crease with a darker brown.
  4. Apply the lid colour. I used a shimmery warm brown, but added some light shimmer color on top of that to make it more glowing. I also applied some shimmer to my inner corners.
  5. Deepen the crease a bit more. Now that you have a lid color it’s easier to blend and see what you’re doing. I used a very dark brown at first and then a touch of black. Use a small brush for this.
  6. Line your eyes lightly with a black eye shadow. Apply those crease colors for your lower lash line as well.
  7. Create a winged liner of your choosing. Apply a coat of mascara and some lashes. All done!

 Lips

Lipstick application gone easy:

  1. Line your lips with a transparent lip liner. If you want the lipstick to last super long, apply the liner all over your lips.
  2. Add lipstick to your bottom lip.
  3. Press your lips together to spread the color.
  4. Apply a nice layer of the lipstick all over your lips. Now that the lips already have some color, it’s easier to see the lines and apply the lipstick smoothly.

I’ve been full of inspiration lately and when I received some new products in the mail (as pr-samples) I couldn’t wait to play with them. In many of my tutorials I’ve been using more expensive products and palettes, so this tutorial is made with more affordable (but lovely) brands.

I actually used mainly just four products + lashes and mascara. All the products are listed at the end of this post. The big star here was definitely the NYX Beauty School Dropout palette though, which can be used on face, eyes and brows.

This look is a fun way of using some color without going all crazy. Let me know what you think!

face tutorial

  1. Apply the foundation using a damp beauty blender. Milani’s foundation has concealer in it too so you can use it as your concealer too. I applied one layer to my whole face and then did some spot-concealing. I applied it under my eyes too and a touch of another concealer on top of that for my eyes. Set the base lightly with a powder.
  2. Contour, bronze and blush. Below is a photo where you can see where I applied those three things. When using a full coverage foundation it’s important to bring some color to your face so be sure to apply a touch of bronzer and/or a blush at least, if you’re not into the whole thing.
  3. Fill in your brows using a brow brush and suitable powders for your tones. I mixed grey, light brown and a darker brown color from my NYX palette.Contour bronzer blush placement

Contouring is for sculpting: creating shadows on your face and emphasizing for example cheekbones as I did here. That’s why you should use a matte shade. Bronzer is for warming up the face and making it look a bit tanned. It can be a warm color with some shimmer. Blush makes you look young, fresh and healthy.

  1. Apply primer and set it with a powder.
  2. Apply white eye shadow to your lid and on your inner corner. Use tapping motions to make it intense.
  3. Cut the crease. First use a lighter shade and sketch the right shape. Blend well.
  4. Darken the crease with a darker color. Try to keep the line between white and brown clean(ish), blend carefully upwards.
  5. Line your lash line with pink eye shadow. Apply the pink on your lower lash line as well, that’s where the pink should be the brightest.
  6. Create a wing using a wet brush and black eye shadow. The black hides a bit of the pink on your lid, but that’s the idea. It shows a bit though and looks cool (wow, such creativity, much artistic).
  7. Apply a mascara and or lashes of your choosing.

I made a little paint-version, where you can maybe see better the color placement. I blended the brown crease colors upwards kinda like a cat eye. I also blended it in the outer corner just so that it almost meets the white lid color.

Finish the look with a pink lipstick. This was my first time wearing Milani’s Fruit Punch, but I think I’m already a bit obsessed.
