Soft Romantic Makeup (Revisited)

I’ve done a lot of UD Naked 3 makeup tutorials, and though most of them are smoky eyes, I do have a few non-smoky eyes tutorials. I was looking back on those tutorials, and I’ve decided to revisit this Soft Romantic Makeup post. I actually liked how I did my makeup in that post, but I felt that I wanted to redo it, and added more intensity to the shadows. Which one do you prefer? This tutorial or the original one? Let me know on the comments below!

I’d also like to mention that I’ve changed the way I filled my brows for this tutorial – it’s thicker, and more natural looking. I think I prefer this brow, even though it might look “less polished” than the “carved out” brows (aka concealer on top and bottom of my brows), I do like how it looks more organic. What do you guys think?

I apologize if the photos are slightly too warm, I didn’t realize my camera’s white balance setting was on the “warming filter” option. I tried to neutralize it using photoshop, but this is all I can do for now (besides trying to neutralize the yellow shade, I did not do anything else – no airbrushing whatsoever). I’ll be more careful next time.

1. I applied MAC Perky paint pot all over my (mobile) eyelid using my ring finger.

2. Using a small blending brush, I applied UD Naked 3 Darkside on the outer V.

3. Using the blending brush that came with the palette, I applied Nooner on the crease. I used this shade to blend out the edge of Darkside.

4. I applied Trick on the eyelid, using the flat eyeshadow brush that came with the palette.

5. Using a small shader brush, I applied Burnout on the inner corner of the lower lid, and Darkside on the outer half.

6. I, very lightly, applied a teeeensy bit of Blackheart right on the roots of the lower lashes (just the outer half).

7. I lined my waterline using MAC Chromagraphic eyeliner in NW25/NC30. Along the upper lash line, I created a winged liner using L’oreal 24H Lacquer Liner and an angled eyeliner brush.

8. I filled my brows using Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe and Brunette.

9. Curled my lashes, and applied Gwiyomi False lashes no. 3.

Smoky Eyes and Red Lips

Since I’ve been doing quite a few bright colored tutorials, I wanted to do a dark look…I love smoky eyes and red lips, and even though usually I don’t wear both at the same time, I did it anyways..hahaha..Lately this combination of smoky eyes and red lips are making a comeback. What used to be a faux pas, seems to be the new trend. Smoky eyes and red lips were the look in 1920s (think Betty Bop, Flapper dancers etc). However, I obviously made it to suit my own style and liking!

I wanted to find my own red lips hue, so I’ve to mix it myself. If you like the color of the lips, continue reading for the tutorial! 🙂

2. Using a blending brush, I applied the darker side (bluish charcoal) from NARS Dogon duo eyeshadow on the crease and outer V.

3. I lined my waterline and tightline using L’oreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner.

5. I also applied the darker shade from NARS Dogon duo eyeshadow along the lower lashline.
