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!

FACE

face

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.

EYES

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.

LIPS

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.

Colors from the rainbow: Blue pride!

A phone call with my sister went about like this:

“Jassu, can I do your makeup? I’m fed up with my face and I’ve lost my inspiration.”
“Umm.. yeah?!”

Gladly it’s easy to get makeup models and familiar faces even let you do whatever makeup you want. My other sister challenged me to do colorful looks for pride week. Pride is celebrated with rainbow colurs and you see a lot of rainbow eyeshadows and lips. I love colours but I didn’t want to do a basic rainbow liner this time. I wanted to play with colour placement and do something different and fun. I also wanted the look to be more wearable so instead of using all the colours I picked one from the rainbow: blue.

And guys. Blue eyebrows. I mean blue ombre eyebrows. Yes! Did someone talk about wearable? Funny, this time I had to do a blue eyeshadow look to go with the eyebrows – to balance the look. Ha.

I think this makeup is one of my favourites.

We were in a hurry but I still took some making of photos. So here are the before, in between and after photos!

  1. I primed the brows with white pencil and a light eyebrow definer (Zuii’s). I applied the white color as seen in the photo and the brow product to the start of the brow.
  2. After that I applied the blue eyeshadow to the end of the brow and a darker brown colour to the front (Rimmel).
  3. I finished the look with brown brow mascara and blue mascara in the end of the brow.
    Foundation, highlight, contouring thing happening here.
