I very rarely wear eyeshadow, so I was pretty nervous about doing my eye makeup by myself, but I was also really excited at the same time! It's fun playing around with colors!
Here's a picture of my eye makeup:
It didn't turn out exactly how I wanted it to. The color didn't show up that much on the actual pictures. (I just took these with my own camera.) I know that flash photography decreases the colors of makeup, but I was just too afraid of making my eye makeup too dark. It wasn't so bad though, my eye makeup just turned out looking very natural instead. I was just hoping the colors would show up more, but I guess natural-looking makeup is pretty apt for a graduation picture.
Here's a list of the products I used:
- Maybelline EyeStudio Brow Definist
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose (For the inner half)
- Coastal Scents 78 Shadow Blush Palette (For the outer half)
- Clinique Eye Shadow Trio (For the center)
- Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Black
- Maybelline Volum' Express Cat Eyes Mascara
I actually took a lot of tips from Michelle Phan for this look. She's still my most favorite makeup guru even though there are probably hundreds out there now.
I used the white shimmer shade from the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, light pink and dark brown shades from the Coastal Scents 78 Palette, and a shimmery taupe shade from the Clinique Eye Shadow Trio.
Obviously, I still need tons of practice. My graduation ceremony is coming soon and I'll be doing my own makeup again. I hope I'll be able to make it last all day. Very excited about that!
Did any of you go through a pictorial recently? How did your makeup turn out?☺
