The makeup tutorial

Supplies:

  • Gray frost eyeshadow
  • Silver shimmer eyeshadow or powder highlighter
  • Black eyeliner
  • Black mascara
  • Bronzer
  • Liquid highlighter
  • Soft pink lip gloss

Instructions:

1

Start by applying loose face powder or an eyeshadow primer all over the eyelid to help prevent eye oils from creasing makeup. Then apply foundation and concealer as usual. Swipe a frosty gray eyeshadow over the entire lid. Then, press a powder face highlighter or a silver shimmer eyeshadow onto the inner corners of each eye.

Lightly contour the sides of nose and cheekbones. Contouring is the art of creating bone structure, using makeup. Your contour powder should be a red-brown tone. This will give a more realistic look of bone structure shadow. This illusion can make the nose look smaller and the face look thinner.

Dust bronzer around the face, hitting the tops of cheeks, around the hairline and the chin.
