Welcome to my first post of 2017!
I, like so many others, am so excited to see what's ahead in 2017 and I hope I'll be able to grow this blog as it approaches its 3rd birthday! Mad, I know.
Today I want to share a makeup look with you. I don't think I've done a makeup look here in about a year. This year I would really like to incorporate more makeup into Pale and Interesting as I've become a lot more passionate about it recently. Hopefully this year I'll be able to share more looks with you.
Today I will be doing a makeup look suitable for going out (to partayyyyy, not to wear to Mass).
I hope you like it!
I start by priming my eyelids with concealer. I use the Seventeen Stay Time concealer and blend it in with my fingers.
Then, using an Essence Eye Blender brush I applied MAC's Soft Brown eyeshadow to my crease and above it. The most important part is to blend, blend, blend. I like to spend 5 minutes blending my eyeshadow. I've been known to check my Twitter as I blend my eyeshadow.
With the Inglot 10S brush, I put Inglot's 301 eyeshadow (a matte cranberry shade) in the outer V of my eyelid. I also put it through my crease and a small bit beside my inner corner. This means that there is a small semi-circle in the centre of my lid that is surrounded by 301.
I then use 10S brush to apply 299 (a burnt orange shade) to the outer 1/3 of my lid to deepen the cranberry.
With a Sephora PRO Tapered Crease Brush I blend out the shades I just applied. Again, I take my time blending it so I am sure there are no visible lines.
I blend 301 and 299 under my eye to prevent my eye from looking too strange and top-heavy.
At this stage you SHOULD look like you've been punched in the eye.
Putting another drop of Duraline on the back of my hand, I coat my IT Cosmetics Angled Liner Brush with my Inglot 77 gel liner.
I line my waterline with black gel liner.
On my lid, I make one line upwards from the corner of my eye at the angle that line up with the tip of my nose and end of my brow. I then make a line from my inner corner that thickens as it goes towards my outer eye. I then join these two lines together and so make a triangular shape.
Finally, I apply a coat or two of my MAC Instacurl Mascara.
And that's it for my cranberry-pink eye look. Let me know if you liked this look and would like me to do similar posts in the future.
Thanks for reading,
