Full face makeup tutorial – Vice 4 tutorial

vice 4 blue eyeshadow tutorial

I love blue eye shadow. I’m always drawn to it. If there’s a palette with blue shade in it I’m gonna choose it. Or if there’s a beautiful blue single eye shadow I’m gonna buy it. I love blue. And I think blue suits many eye colors – especially if you pair it right. Black eye shadow works with anything but especially with blue. Anyway – let’s get to the tutorial and to my makeup tips for this beautiful look!



Before. Starting with a clean base. Nothing on my face here (except moisturizers I applied in the morning.)

face monuskin primer

Primer. Here I’m wearing MONUSKIN Illuminating Primer. This makes my skin dewy and it evens out the color a bit. It’s also a bit sticky so the foundation sticks to it better.

face estee lauder double wear

Foundation. Here I’m wearing Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in the shade Ecru. This offers full coverage and makes my skin look flawless. This foundation is gold.. as you can see.

face mufe pro sculpting palette

Contour, Highlight & Blush. Here I’m wearing Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Palette in shade 30. I have a video where I show you exactly how to use this palette here. It’s important to apply at least some blush and bronzer when you’re using a full-coverage foundation so that you don’t look like a ghost. (Just compare this pic to the Foundation pic.)

face brows guerlain essence

Brows. I’ve been loving Guerlain Brow Pencil in Blonde ’cause it gives my brows a natural finish with just enough color. Essence make me brow -gel in blonde shade makes my brow hairs stay neat and gives them a bit more color.

eyeshadow brushes

For eyes I wanted to do blue kind of a smokey eye with a pop of turquoise on the waterline. I included the brushes in this tutorial, let me know if you find it helpful.

1. First I applied a primer. Then I started to contour my eyes just above the crease using Zoeva 225 brush and the color ‘Discreet’. This helps to get the right shape for the darker shadows and works as a transition color.

2. Then I applied the ‘Beat Down’ blue on my lid with a CS 13 brush. I used a tapping motion and blended  it really carefully using that same brush.

3. I applied ‘Beat Down’ also on my lower lashline using that same CS 13 brush. Then I blended all that blue shadow using CS 10 brush.

4. Then I applied some depth using the black ‘Deadbeat’ shade. I applied it to my outer corners and a tiny bit to my lower lash line too using a CS 12 brush. I blended it using the same CS 10 brush I used blending the blue.

5. Then I added some light shimmer to my inner corner and to my brow bone. The shade I used was ‘Bones’ and the brush was CS 15.

6. I did an eye liner and added mascara and fake lashes. I also lined my waterline with a turquoise liner.

With matte lip creams you want to make sure your lips are not dry. So use a lip balm before applying makeup to them. I love Hurraw! lip balms and they are the only ones I  use.

1. I lined my lips and colored them in using Stagecolor Liner Stick in Plum Red.
2. Then I applied two coats of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania. It’s a tricky color to get even – but so pretty.

Instagram makeup trends & the challenge




Defined and full brows, brown colours on lids with some kind of a cut crease, big winged liner, full lashes, a ton of highlighter and overdrawn nude lips. That is my overstated take on the #instagrammakeup.

Beautiful Pauliina from All The Little Royals -blog did this challenge and I wanted to take part in it too. The idea is to copy a makeup look that is really in right now and that is seen with many bloggers and vloggers. Instagram really shows the makeup trends that are in at the moment and even though I don’t agree with all the trends doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy gorgeous photos of awesome makeup.

I like full coverage foundation but don’t really wear it on every day basis ’cause it can look cakey and heavy especially when it starts to wear off. On photos though it looks amazing – especially if you pair it with photoshop. I feel like I can’t talk about instagram makeup without talking about photoshop a bit – ’cause they seem to walk hand in hand. I really can’t bear the blurred skin and bright eyes and shimmering photoshopped highlighter with some of the vloggers. I do sometimes edit my photos but mainly I do it to remove pimples or something like that. I like my makeup to be the shining star – not my editing skills. Do you feel me?

Back to the makeup – I love this eye look! Brown neutrals suit everyone and big lashes make everything better. I like winged liner too but I just can’t make it work for my eye shape. The struggle is real with that one. I accidentally did a really thick liner for this look but luckily it looks fine with big lashes. I solemnly swear to learn to slay my wings in the future.

Nude lips have slowly got me. They’re just easy to pair with anything and they look good even wearing off. Overdrawn lips though are not really my thing. I do line my lips slightly over my real lip line but never like this. I feel like I look ridiculous and bigger lips don’t suit my face. I’m actually relieved about that – I don’t want to want to get lip injections. That seems to be a trend now too which is a bit sad.

What do you think on the instagram trends and makeup looks?
