Hello friends! Welcome to my 200th post on my blog! Today I am sharing with you another Eid look, this time a bit more dramatic featuring the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette. If you don't like a dramatic look, I recommend you checking my previous post here where I did a Natural Eid Makeup. This is the type of makeup I would typically wear for any special events that I go to. I love wearing a dark vampy lipstick and smoked out eyes.
Today was the first day that I tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit that I purchased on Wednesday when Macy's was selling it for $25. I have avoided contour kits in the past because a) the steep price and b) let's be real, do I really need more contours and highlights? But the deal was too good to pass up, so I impulsively picked it up. I'm not sure what I think about it yet, but I will definitely let you know with a review.
Eid Mubarak to all my Muslim friends! I hope you all have a wonderful Eid and I hope you enjoy this look :)
To start off with, I primed my face using the Benefit Porefessional (Review) and primed my undereyes using the Elf Studio Hydrating Under Eye Primer. After waiting several minutes, I applied the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in Light Beige (Review) and the Elf Studio HD Lifting Concealer. I then busted out my brand spankin' new Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit in Light, and started off my using the Vanilla shade in the regions I like to highlight (underneath my eyes, forehead, down the bridge of my nose, and chin). I then initially used the Nude shade to contour my cheekbones and deepen up the perimeters of my face, but then I decided to pick up Cinnamon to deepen up the contour a little bit (and as a result, I had to use a beauty blender to help blend it out a little bit more. To set the my face, I used the Wet n Wild Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana (yes, I did not go in with an additional bronzer to set the contour, I liked the result of it as it stood).
I then moved onto my eyes. I applied the Wet n Wild Fergie Take the Day Eyeshadow Primer (Review) all over my eyelids and then used Heaven from the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette to set it. I then started off my eyeshadow look by using Cashmere Bunny as a transition color in my crease. I then used Erotica all over my lids and placed a BareMinerals silver eyeshadow pigment onto the center of my lids. For extra blending into the crease, I used Nudie from the same Too Faced palette. I also used Cashmere Bunny along my lowerlash line. For my eyeliner, I used the NYC Liquid Eyeliner in Black on the upper lash line and Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Eyeliner on the tightline and waterline. Lastly, for mascara, I used the BareMinerals Lash Domination Mascara and for my eyebrows, I used the Elf Studio Brow Kit in Medium (Review).
To finish off the rest of my face, I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed and for my lips, I used Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipstick in Sugar Plum Fairy.
