Springtime Colours

Hey everyone, this look was inspired by "prettylilmizgrace" on youtube. She did a look very similar to this & i just wanted to recreate it :) enjoy!

  1. prime your lids with MAC "painterly" paint pot
  2. using a 239 brush, pat MAC "gesso" all over the lid & up to the brows, focusing on the inner corner
  3. next take MAC "going bananas" (limited edition) on an ELF "contour brush" & blend this onto the outer 2/3 of the lid
  4. then take MAC "passionate" on a 217 brush & sweep it into the crease & create a defined outer V shape
  5. with the ELF "contour brush" again, pick up MAC "goldenrod" & just smudge this where MAC "passionate" & MAC "going bananas" meet
  6. blend out any hard edges with a 227 brush & an eyeshadow similar to your skin tone (for me this is MAC "blanc type")
  7. take a 219 brush & smudge MAC "passionate" under the lash line
  8. go right under MAC "passionate" with MAC "goldenrod" with the same 219 brush
  9. with a 275 brush, apply MAC "white frost" to the inner corner of your eyes & along your brow bone as a hilight
  10. fill in your brows (i used Annabelle "fuschia" lip liner & went over it with MAC "mystery" eyeshadow)
  11. using a black eyeliner pencil, line your tightline and waterline, i used Urban Decay "24/7 eyeliner pencil" in zero
  12. using any black eyeliner (gel, cream, liquid, pencil) line your upper lash line, i used ELF "studio cream liner" in black
  13. apply your favourite mascara, i used Benefit "bad gal"
  1. first prime your skin using clean fingers with either a moisturizer or foundation primer, i used Clinique "dramaticlly different moisturizing lotion"
  2. next conceal under your eyes, i used the salmon colour in the Coastal Scents "camo quad" in light
  3. next conceal any other imperfections on your skin, i used MAC "pro longwear concealer" in NW15
  4. apply your foundation, i used MAC "mineralized skin finish natural" in light
  5. if using non powder foundation, set with powder.
  6. next take your contour colour with a 168 brush and contour the hollows of your cheekbones and anywhere else you'd like, i used Coastal Scents "dark camo quad" in the darkest shade
  7. apply with a fluffy dome brush (i used the "blush" brush from Visage), MAC "bite of an apple" blush (limited edition) to the apples of your cheeks & blend up along your cheekbone
  8. finally dust a little of Too Faced "snow bunny bronzer" onto the top of your cheekbones up to your temple as a highlight with a 188 brush
  1. prime your lips with a lip primer or lip balm, i used California Mango lip balm
  2. apply any colour lipstick you'd like, i just stuck with my lip balm
