Back to school/work tutorial! – ALL DRUGSTORE

Published August 19, 2013 by majormakeupmadness

Hey guys,

So today I’m going to do a work/school appropriate makeup tutorial. I actually did one of these over a year ago, but it wasn’t really very good.

So this look is quite natural, bearing in mind that my definition of normal is other peoples definition of dramatic. Its a shimmery brown eye look with matte pink lips.

And id just like to apologize if the quality of some of the photos is not great, I did this at 9:30pm this evening so the lighting is cruddy (Its like – MY HAIR IS NOT DARK BROWN). I usually use natural light.

Heres the finished result first. (closed eyes so you can see the pretty colours!) :Image

So off with the tutorial:

1) Prime your eyes with an eyeprimer. This is essential for your shadows to last.Image

2) Next I dampen a flat eyeshadow brush and apply a bronze shadow to my lid. I also apply it along my lower lashline.Image

3) next I apply a shimmery ivory eyeliner to my inner corner and blend so it fades into the bronze shadow. Because we need to brighen those peepers in the mornin!Image

4) For eyeliner, I line my upper lashline with a thin brown line, I also line the outer third of my lower lashline. This adds definition without closing your eyes up.Image

5) Next I curl my lashes and apply 2 coats of mascara on my top and bottom lashes. WATERPROOF OF COURSE, GURL! Image

6) Now for the cheeks. I apply a matte bronzer under my chin, cheeks and around my forehead. Kind of of a ‘3’ shape. I then apply blush to the apples of my cheek and blend into my temples. Image

7) The final step is to apply a pink matte lip cream to your lips, and you’re good to go!Image

  • Your skin looks so flawless here. You did a good job with the pictures even though it was at night. I struggle with photos in artificial light – it’s an added challenge.

    • Aw thank you so much. It was quite challenging to get good pictures. The colours are just a bit off what they should be.

      Thank you, but my skin isnt flawless at all! I take pride in a good foundation and concealer to get my skin nice. My skin is breaking out badly at the moment, trust me honey its all makeup.
      🙂 xx

      • I’ll definitely have to buy that foundation and concealer when I get to the UK (I’m studying abroad in Leicester in a few weeks) because your skin looks AMAZING.
