So, makeup can be an essential part of looking and feeling good around your crush. And whether you love makeup or you’re not a huge fan, today I’m going to use the latest research in relationship science to give you makeup tips to help you stand out from the crowd when it comes to your crush.
I have teamed up with someone very special, the beautiful, Aysha Abdul of her YouTube channel, Aysha Abdul. (Aysha) Yeah. So, I’m really excited for this look today. We’re going to create something very gorgeous.
Very easy for you guys to follow as well. So, I really hope you guys enjoy it. And thank you so much, Kimberly for having me on this channel. (Dr. Kimberly) Oh my God, you guys should definitely check out her YouTube channel.
There’s makeup videos, beauty tutorials, and the makeup always turns out amazing. (Aysha) And make sure you stay tuned til the end, because we will be giving something really special away. (Dr. Kimberly) Woo! Wonder what it is.
Okay, so first we’re starting off by filling in the brows using an eyebrow pencil from Femme Couture. And then, we’re going to define and set the brows using a spoolie. Having balanced brows actually contributes to our overall level of attractiveness by increasing facial symmetry.
Also, according to the ancient art of Chinese face reading, people with full brows are said to be perceived as more confident than people with thin brows. The next step is prepping the eyes for shadow with the Two Faced Shadow Insurance Primer.
This one’s kind of obvious, because the last thing you want in front of your crush is your eye makeup literally melting off. The scientific goal of eye makeup is to make your eyes as intense as possible, in contrast to the rest of your face.
Aysha’s going to show us how to achieve that using the Tarlet in Blue pallet. And she’s just starting with a neutral shade all over the base of the eye. This highlighting shade is called Charmer. And next after that, we’re going to use a shade called Flower Child to gently define the crease of the eye.
Studies have shown that the greater the contrast between the eyes and the rest of the face, the more attractive the person is perceived to be. So duh, we’re going to go for as much contrast as possible.
And Aysha’s starting that process using a shade called Smarty Pants. And finally, she’s going in with this really gorgeous shade called Rebel that’s really going to start intensifying the corners of the eyes.
You can really see how the intensity is starting to build here. Now, after applying and thoroughly blending the highlighter shade into the brow bone, Aysha’s going in with a shade called Funny Girl, which is essentially just gold shimmers.
And this is like the money part of the look that really brings intensity and life into the eyes. To set the look of all of this eye shadow that we just did- we want to preserve it- we’re using the Urban Decay Allnighter Setting Spray.
And, she’s just using it to gently set the eye shadow. Winged eyeliner is typically the most effective type of eye liner to wear around your crush, because it makes the eyes look bigger and more full by extending the actual corner of your eye.
Large eyes are a sign of higher levels of estrogen. And this has led society to see large eyes as more attractive. So, we’re having fun with base by mixing two of my all time favorite foundations together.
This is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, and this is Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation. And using a beauty blender and a brush to blend it all in. This one’s obvious too, because you don’t want your crush to see a huge streak of orange all over your face.
For concealer, my favorite is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer. And Aysha’s putting it on me in the shape of an upside down triangle, and then she’s blending it all in with a beauty blender. And then, taking some powder and actually baking it in under the eye.
Defining our cheek bones can also make us seem more attractive. High and defined cheekbones are one of the most prominent things that separate a sexually mature adult from a child. In the caveman days, people were considered attractive when they were old enough to produce offspring.
This explains why contouring has become so popular in makeup trends today. And since rosy cheeks are also a scientific sign of attractiveness, Aysha is applying this cute Tart blush to my cheeks. And to highlight my cheek bones for all the right reasons, Aysha’s applying this amazing highlighter by Becca with a brush right above my cheek bones.
And finally, guys, we’re completing the eyes with a couple of small steps. We’re smoking out the lower part of the eye with the Tartlet pallet again. We are filling in the water line with a Burberry eyeliner pencil.
And finally, we’re just adding a little bit of mascara to the lower lashes. I’m sure you guys have already discovered and know I love this mascara. It’s the Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. The reason why lipstick has become such a global phenomenon is that is creates contrast between the lips and the rest of the face.
Guys, it’s just like with eye makeup. The more the lips stand out from the rest of the face, the more attractive you’re perceived to be. So, if you can pull off a killer red lip, go for it. But for today, we’ve chosen this pretty peachy pink.
And finally, guys, we are setting this look so it doesn’t actually budge off your face with this Urban Decay Setting Spray. (Aysha) Okay, guys. So, this is the completed look that I did on Kimberly. I really, really love how it turned out.
I hope you guys like it as well. What do you think of the look? (Dr. Kimberly) Honestly, I love it. I think it doesn’t feel like I’m heavily made up. It feels really natural, but it also feels like pretty and romantic, and something I would definitely want to go out on a date in.
(Aysha) Exactly. You always want to be comfortable when you’re on a date. So, that’s what I wanted. (Dr. Kimberly) That’s like the key to confidence. (Aysha) For sure. (Dr. Kimberly) So guys, we are doing a giveaway with this video for this- (Aysha) The Tarlet In Blue Pallet, you guys.
This is like my new holy grail pallet. I got it a couple of months ago and I’m so obsessed with it. So, we really wanted to give one out for you guys as well. And, I used all of the colors on Kimberly in this video as well.
