Definitely not the most exciting thing, nor my favorite, but it is the bread and butter of my makeup applications. This is a fairly typical work look for me if I'm wearing eye shadow - and as I discussed in my February Favorites post, I have been skipping all eye makeup but mascara most days. I'll have all the products I used and my clothing down below!
MUFE HD Foundation in 110 (applied with a MAC 190 brush)
Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Bisque
Bobbi Brown Concealer in Porcelain
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Light
MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Lingering & MAC Brow Gel in Beguiling
Naked 2 - Tease & Foxy
Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Espresso Ink
MAC Blush in Well Dressed
NARS Lipgloss in Ophelia
I applied a layer of UDPP to my whole lid and brow. I patted Kitten on my lid and inner corner using a MAC 242 brush. I then took just a little bit of Tease on a 222 and applied it to my crease using windshield wiper motions and a light hand. I got a little bit of Mulch on a 217 and applied it to the outer corner of my lid and worked it up into my crease some. I had an important meeting at work today and didn't want a dark crease to be the center of attention here, so I just lightly defined it. I used a dense dome shaped brush from Sonia Kashuk to apply Foxy across my brow bone. I then used a 210 brush to apply a very thin line of the gel liner to my lash line, and then I winged it out very slightly. Nothing super dramatic or even something that someone would notice if they weren't staring fixedly at my eyes. I tend to draw my wings more "out" than "up" - I feel like it serves better to elongate my eyes. I finished things off with a coat of Covergirl's LashBlash mascara on both the top and bottom lashes. I used a 116 brush to apply Well Dressed to the apples of my cheeks, and finished things up with a quick swipe of Ophelia lipgloss. Dress from J. Crew, necklace from David Yurman. Though unseen, I had OPI Do You Lilac It? on my nails and a complementary silver ring with blue and purple jewels. I wore the dress with opaque black tights and a pair of (very, very) old black Tory Burch flats with a glittery black logo.
