How to create a simple soft makeup look to ring in the New Year!

I love doing dramatic makeup on models for photoshoots, but when it comes to myself, I like to keep things very simple, soft and natural. For myself, I never like to look like I’m wearing a ton of makeup. If you’re anything like me, then here’s how to create a simple and soft makeup look with a touch of gold glitter to ring in 2015!

I used the Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura shupette collection to create this look:

How I used the palette:

Step 1: Tight line the lash line and thickly line the upper lash line with shu uemura drawing pencil in black. Use the brown glittery shupette drawing pencil to perfect the black liner and to create a slight cat eye.

Step 2: Brush the cool purple shadow (#1 in image) starting from the outer 1/3 of eyelid using brush 10.FullSizeRender_1

 

Step 3: Blend the golden taupe shade (#2) into the purple shade starting from the centre of the eyelid.FullSizeRender_2

 

Step 4: Create depth using the plum shade and brush 5R.FullSizeRender_3

 

Step 5: Soften the plum shade using the golden yellow shade (#4) and brush 8H. FullSizeRender_4

Step 6: Apply gold glitter to the centre of the eyelid and in the inner corners of the eyes using finger tip. Re-line the eyes to create a more evident winged eye.

Step 7: Apply mascara and shu uemura black v false lashes and pat the silk cushion cheek blush onto cheeks using finger tips. It’s a moist blush that turns to a powder finish when applied.
