FOTD – UD Naked

It’s been a looooooong time since my last makeup/FOTD post and I have to apologize to lack of photos and poor quality of the ones that are actually there. I haven’t taken makeup pics for such a long time that I had a really hard time getting anything to show up on the pic. Maybe I’ll get better again if I have energy to take makeup photos more often :)

FOTD – Dior Seascape with MUS glitter liner

0

I decided to take photos of my face of the day without big explanations about the makeup and how it was done. The photos are of my eye makeup for today. I also included a photo of the products I used for this look. You can’t see my whole face but at least you can see what products I used to go with the eye makeup :)

For the eye makeup I used Dior 5 Couleurs Seascape with Make Up Store glitter eyeliner shade Purple Rain on the bottom lid. I used UDPP as a base on the whole upper lid and MAC Paint Pot Rollickin’ on the inner corner (and the camera washed out all the colors of my makeup again … grrrr).

If you have any questions just leave a comment and I’ll be glad to answer :)

 


Dior 5 Couleurs 250 Seascape, Make Up Store Glitter Eyeliner Purple Rain, NYX Mosaic Powder 01 Highlighter, MAC Paint Pot Rollickin’, MAC Lipstick Utter Pervette (Lustre), Wet n Wild Lipliner Milk Coffee, Helena Rubinstein Urban Beauty Shimmering Blush 01 Star Light (missing from the photo are NYX Mosaic Powder 02 Latte and Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express mascara

 

Dior 5 Couleurs Iridescent – 809 Petal Shine

2

Here’s a quick and easy makeup done with Dior 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palette Petal Shine. This palette is Iridescent finish. All the colors on this one are well pigmented and apply smoothly. Iridescent finish also practically blends itself so it’s perfect for quick and beautiful look.

As usual I applied UDPP on the whole lid first. Then I used shade 3 closest to the lashes, almost up to the crease. Above that I applied shade 4 and then shade 5 on the top. At this point the shades are already pretty well blended. Either way I still used a big brush to make the shades slide into each other. After that I used shade 2 to blend the outline and highlight the browbone. After the blending I applied shade 1 to the crease using a brush. This is done the last cos I want the shade to be clearly visible. Shade 1 doesn’t need any blending in this case.

 

Green makeup

Today’s makeup look is green (of course matched with my nails and lovely Aragon). For this I used YSL 5 Colour Harmony For Eyes palette number 6. As you can see from the swatch pic this is not as well pigmented as Dior eyeshadows, but with a good primer this works wonders. The highlighter shade in the middle is quite glittery and useless but the others are good quality.

On this look I applied UDPP first as usual and then shade 2 on the inner corner of my eye, shade 4 in the middle and shade 5 on the outer corner. I also used shade 1 to blend the outline slightly. All the shades go up to crease. Cos I didn’t want the eyeliner to be too dark or look too sharp I used MAC Paint Pot Cash Flow as the eyeliner and mascara is again Helena Rubinstein’s Lash Queen.

This is pretty light day makeup but using black cream eyeshadow underneath this you can create a really dramatic look.

 

Quick work makeup

3

Yesterday I tried to photograph my first makeup pics for this blog but I managed to look like a crossbreed of a frog and a weird blowfish so you’ll just see they eye ;) Anyways I think you can see the makeup well enough from these pics too. This is a very basic look and easy to do even if you don’t have a lot of experience.

For this I used Dior 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palette Earth Tones and underneath it all I have Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. On my lashes I have Wet n Wild mascara primer ( which doesn’t seem to work too well for me but more about that in another post) and Helena Rubinstein’s Lash Queen mascara. Cos this was a very quick makeup I didn’t use eyeliner at all.

First I applied UDPP and then Earth Tones shade 5 closest to the lashes, shade 4 above that to the crease and then shade 2 on the top. I blended the shades together with a big brush. Cos I wanted to keep the round shape of my eyes I blended the shawod using a downwards movement towards the lashes. On the bottom lid I have shade 4 on the outer side and shade 2 towards the corner of my eye.

For this look you can use any eyeshadow and color. Blending the eyeshadows down towards your lashes makes sure you can’t end up with color up to your eyebrows. From eyeshadow primer to the mascara it takes about 5 mins to finish a makeup like this so this is also perfect for busy people.
