Make-up Tutorial: Thinking of you

Earlier today I was playing around with my make-up and taking pictures of some new products I bought so I could review them later. At some point it felt as if I was doing a tutorial, so I thought: why not? This is my first time doing such a thing, so it will probably look a little silly sometimes. I had a lot of fun doing this though!

Well, Here it goes. I’ll be showing you pictures of the products I used, then a certain step you need to do using that sort of product and finally a picture of the result. Oh, and I waited with putting concealer on after I was done, so don’t let my sleepy eyes scare you :P

Step 1: Yup, first you prime your eyes.

Step 2: Take a black eye shadow (this one is from the curious palette by Sleek) and create a black base with it. As you can see, I also got some eye shadow on the bottom (clumsy me) but it won’t hurt the final result ;)

Step 3: Take a colour that is a bit lighter than your own skin tone to highlight the upper area. (I used one from the coastal scents 88 palette).

4: Take a piece of double sided tape and cut it in half. (I like to use the double sided one because it’s not too sticky and it catches a lot of fallout).

Take one and place it from the corner of your eye to where your eyebrow ends.

Step 5: Pick a purple eye shadow & apply it above the black base.


Step 6: take another black (a matte one) and a shimmery bronze, you will apply this over the black base. The second black goes in the corners, the bronze goes in the middle.

Step 7: Take a red ish brown and use it to blend the purple and the black together.

Step 8: Time to remove the tape!

9: Now it’s time to apply the eyeliner, make sure you keep the line thin and end with a little wing.

Now you can colour the waterline.

Step 10: Curl your lashes and apply mascara (I used my new one, I’ll review it later!)

And then…you’re finished!

Here are some more pictures of the final look: (In the last two pictures I highlighted the inner corner of my eye with white eye shadow, but that’s optional)
