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.

11. Then, I applied MUFE HD Foundation in 120 using Real Technique Expert Face brush.

12. I applied MAC Pro Longwear Concealer under my eyes, as well as on the bridge of my nose (just between the brows).

13. I also applied L’oreal Visible Lift blush in Rose Gold on my cheeks.

14. I set my face using NARS Setting Powder.

15. On my lips, I applied MAC Please Me lipstick and a few dabs of clear gloss.

Berry Lips with Revlon Smitten Balm Stain

Happy New Year 2014, everyone! I hope this year would be an even greater and much more awesome year than 2013! I wanted to post this Berry Lips look since I wore it for NYE, and I think it’ll be a good tutorial to start of 2014. This look is very simple and easy, and no matter where you are you can definitely wear it. I added a little touch of glitter on the eyes for an extra playfulness, after all glitter is so fabulous!

For my eyes, I used UD Naked 3, which as you all know, has been my fav.! I’ve done 2 other tutorials prior to this post using Naked 3 in Rose Smoky Eyes and UD Naked 3 look #2. The other 2 geared more on the smoky side, while on this one it’s more natural looking.

For the berry lips, I decided to skip my usual red, pink, and burgundy. Instead, I decided to wear a berry lip stain to keep my lips moisturized and not having to worry about having to touch up throughout the night, or stain anything. It was low maintenance, and I just love how the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain keep my lips moist without feeling sticky.

1. I prepped my lids by applying UD Primer Potion, and then applied Dust from UD Naked 3 with a flat eyeshadow brush.

2. Using a fluffy blending brush, I applied Nooner from UD Naked 3.

3. I ran Nooner along the lower lash line using a small shader brush. I also applied Dust on my tear duct.

4. I created a winged liner using Kanebo Kate Super Sharp eyeliner.

5. I lined my lower lash line, very close to the lashes, using Crave from UD Naked Basics.

6. I lined my waterline using L’oreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner. (you can use beige or white if you prefer)

7. I curled my lashes and applied Clinique High Impact mascara on both upper and lower lashes. I also added falsies for fun.

8. I filled my brows using Anastasia Brow wiz in Brunette, and then the brow powder.

9. Using a dry synthetic brush, I applied white glitter on my eyelid for extra shine. If you want to pack the glitter on like in my Glitter Holiday Makeup, use a wet damp brush.
