Here’s a short makeup tut. I did this quite some time ago; even before the “Go Blake Lively Today” one. Reason why it is only up now, is because I did it for the last Bali post.
A couple of ya commented that you like my hippie dress and how the headband goes with it. Fyi, I got both items from Forever21. (:
Today’s post is about how I did my makeup to suit that ala Nicole Richie dress.
I used this BB cream. (Ehem. I’m not gonna mention which brand, but I don’t recommend this because it is very oily oily oily.)
You can use any other BB cream as it has the 3-in-1 (moisturizer, sunscreen, foundation) formula OR you can also opt for the ‘sunscreen + Biotherm makeup base + foundation’ manual mix.
Wearing a hippie maxi dress usually means you’re going out into the sun. Unless you’re wearing it to the cinema at night, can you skip the sunscreen part. =P
I hope you still remember this part!
Here I have Majorica Majorca and Stage’s eyeshadow. You DON’T HAVE to follow exactly the brands I am using here because I’m not using them because they are exceptionally great…
a) Get the brown.
Use an appropriate brush.
Apply it all over your lid like this.
b) Light brown
Use a bigger sweep brush.
Apply it all over the brow bone to heighten up the eyes.
c) Darkest tone for eye corner – Dark blue
Get a pointy eyeshadow applicator and draw a line across the blue.
Apply your blue eyeshadow at the end corner of both upper and bottom part of the eyes. This will make them look bigger.
c) Bright gold
I love this part!
Dab some at the inner corner of the eye – this will instantly perk them up.
4. Eye liner
Line your eyes with a kohl pencil.
Apply mascara for both upper and bottom lashes. You don’t need to use false lashes here (unless you only wanna take pictures) because no one really wears falsies to the beach.
I’m using Body Shop’s Nutmeg.
However, I only recommend the brush. Intro-ed this before in the Blake Lively post.
Apply a layer of lip balm followed by an orange base lipstick with a touch of gloss.
Slip into your Nicole Richie dress, match it with hippie accessories, tie on a headband & wear your favourite flip flops — You’re ready to go!
Have you gotten your maxi dress? 😉
- Some people find the need to constantly check their emails sent by their bosses / colleagues when they are out of their office for meetings.
- Some people find the need to Twitpic everything they eat 3 times a day.
- Some people desperately need to Facebook 24/7 and play Restaurant City or they feel like they will die.
If you are one of the above or more than one of the above, I suggest you get yourself a BlackBerry today. Come Join Me!
With a BB, you also get a BlackBerry Messenger which means in the ideal World, if everyone gets a BB, no calls or SMSes are needed. You can just BBM your friend and it’s all FREE!
However, to do that you’ve gotta first subscribe to the BB Advance for RM 2.50 per day ONLY. After that, whether you need to check your important emails, Twitpic your meals, or Facebook, you conquer all-in-one BB in your hand.
Ain’t that greater than just great? Can you imagine; the life without carrying a heavy laptop around everywhere worrying it might get stolen? You’ve gotta get a BlackBerry to experience it. I’m not lying to you. Try it here. 😉
