Hello! Strangers. How long has it been? Months? Oh My Gosh! I have never missed blogging so much. I don’t want it to come across as an excuse but, Have I been busy these couple of months? HELL YEAH! It’s been a hot minute since I have had a proper day off and have had the chance to actually produce some proper content for my blog. During my uni break, I joined this particular small course so that I can get some job opportunities in that field. Let’s say, I got the job after few months of completing the course and since then, my whole life had been a mess. By mess, I mean it’s great I got a better job but I also had to manage two jobs at the same time, tagging a long my passion for the blog. I still am on the verge of settling this whole new change that I have been through. That is why I was MIA for a good couple of months.
Now, since I am back! I came with the Full On Editorial Glam Makeup look for you all. I like to call this look editorial because I have not done anything creative like this before and I am proud of the results that I have achieved. We get to scroll through a lot of posts like this in our Instagram feed, don’t we? But, have you ever wondered that it isn’t so hard after all? I mean you do need to work on your creative juices and let it flow on the right way, but with a little bit of patience and care, it’s not so difficult after all.
First thing first, let’s start off with eyes! The main focus of this look is eyes, so it’s better if you just get it done first. Also, to avoid all the fall outs from blending and everything. I was going for this winged glittery cut crease look so I had to use something to carve out my wing and to help make it look as sharp as possible. You can always go with good ol’ fashion sticky tape, but since it wasn’t handy, I just used my fake eyelashes packaging to carve out the wing. I used the infamous Modern Renaissance Palette for this eye look. I might do a review post on this eyeshadow to see if it worth spurlging on? (let me know). First I went with the transition shade “buon fresco” (light brown) shade. Then, I topped it off with “burnt orange” and blended both shades together. I went with the shade “realgar” (darker burnt orange) and added on top of those two other shades. All of these shades are blended together to form a wing like shape through your crease. Then, to carve out the outer V and to make it more intense, I went with the shade “love letter” (darker pink) and “cyprus amber” (dark brown). I used the burnt orange shade in my clean fluffy blending brush and blended all the shades together. Then, I used flat shader brush with some concealer and carved out my lid area and also through the crease in the shape of the wing. I added “primavera” (golden glitter) in the middle of my lid and “veneetian red” (dark red) shade in the front and back of the lid. I then used the shade “vermer” (champagne) shade right below my crease color and created a thin wing. Then, I added some thin winged eyeliner to top it off and to tie the whole eye look together. I also added some falsies and called it a day. I did go and added more intensity in the crease and lid colors after completing the whole look.
Now, for the face, I went with full coverage foundation and some highlighting drops in order to illuminate the skin. I also went with, the most contoured look and snatched cheekbones and nose. I also went heavy handed on the highlighter. As per lips, it had been a hot minute since I had opt for red lip color. So, I added some bright red lip and to go with the new trend, I added same ‘vermer” (champagne) color in the middle of my lower lip to give the illusion of the pierced lower lip.
And, Viola! There you have it. The dreamy editorial vibe makeup look. This has recenlty been my best makeup trend in instagram so I tried to imitate the look as much as I could. If you find some errors, make sure you leave it down in the comments. Hope you like this makeup look! Thanks for making this far!
