Hey guys, welcome back to my channel. So today’s video is going to be on the look that I’m wearing right now. I know I’ve been doing a lot of dark, wintery inspired makeup tutorials with like dark lips, dark eyeshadow and everything.
So I decided to lighten things up because spring is right around the corner so I came up with this kind of peachy daytime glam makeup tutorial. So if you’d like to see how I put this together then please keep on watching.
So I’ve already primed and set my eyes. I primed using MAC soft ochre paint pot and I set that using MAC”s Blanc Type eyeshadow. But you can use whatever skin colored eyeshadow that you prefer or maybe setting powder.
And now I”m just taking Makeup Geek’s peach smoothie and running that through the crease using a Morphe m433 blending brush, which is just a big fluffy bre- blending brush. It seems like I always get tongue-tied saying blending brush, I always want to say brending brush.
But anyway, I want to go in with Makeup Geek’s Frappé. I’m using all Makeup Geek eyeshadows for this look. Um, I am running that through the crease using a smaller brush. This is the MAC 217, which is a little bit more precise because I want it to go below Makeup Geek’s Peach Smoothie.
And this is where the halo eye part kind of comes into play, you want to start adding that eyeshadow to the inner corner and the outer corner and I’m using small swiping motions to kind of blend out the product and apply it at the same time.
Next, I thought that this look could use a little more peachiness so I wanted to run some of Makeup Geek’s Chickadee eyeshadow through the crease using the same blending brush that we used to blend out Peach Smoothie.
And I feel like it gives a little bit of a nice peachy halo to the crease of this look, just to add a little bit more brightness to it. To blend out the crease shades a little bit more and I went a little too high with it so I decided to go in with a fluffier blending brush, this one’s from BH Cosmetics and I took some of that Blanc Type eyeshadow and ran that over where we applied peach smoothie and chickadee.
Next I’m going in with… I keep wanting to say MAC.. Makeup Geek’s Cocoa Bear, which is a really beautiful dark, chocolatey red brown almost and I’m taking that on a very precise brush. This is the Morphe m431.
I’m just popping that into the inner and outer corner slowly and I want to just add a little bit at a time because I want there to be a gradient effect so I’m using Cocoa Bear to add a little bit of dimension so I don’t want to cover all the areas that we applied Frappé, I kind of want to take it a little bit inwards and have it kind of fade out into Frappé, if that makes sense.
So I’m just swiping that into the inner and outer corners, blending it out and then taking that lightly through the crease so that we create an even more defined halo shape. Now that I have the darker shades (the inner and outer corner) blended out to my liking, I’m going to go in with the shimmery shade.
And this is Makeup Geek’s Shimma Shimma eyeshadow and I’m taking this dry first because I feel like it’s a little bit easier to blend out than going straight in with a wet eyeshadow. So I like to kind of go in with a dry eyeshadow and apply that first so that it’s a little bit easier to blend everything out and it creates that nice gradient into the shimmery shade, if that makes sense.
This palette looks so dirty but I picked up this palette from Naime’s and I’m just putting some Visine on it so that I can wet my brush and add a little bit more of a pop with the shimmery shade. You can use Fix+ or any other setting spray if you prefer, I just had Visine next to me so I just decided to pop that on.
And I’m just applying this using a MAC242, which is a synthetic brush. You can use any synthetic brush that you have. And when I’m applying this, I’m doing dabbing motions so I’m concentrating most of the product in the center of my lid because that’s where I want it to be the brightest.
And whatever I have left on the brush (I’m not adding more to it) I’m kind of pressing it onto the outer parts so that it creates a gradient effect and so that it’s not just a harsh line of shimmer. And the dry eyeshadow that I applied earlier will also help with this.
But you just want to do this until you get the intensity that you prefer. So I popped on some lashes, these are the KISS faux mink lashes in Little Black Dress, which I absolutely love. And this is the point where things kind of speed up in the video.
I decided to do the rest of my face and I filmed a brow tutorial for you guys, which I’ll link above and below if you’d like to look at it. And I just decided to keep this video short and sweet because I do pretty much the same foundation routine and I am planning on doing a foundation routine video that you can just reference really easily so that it’s not too repetitive so hopefully that’s okay.
And I’m just popping on some peach smoothie using the MAC 217 brush on my lower lash line. Then to deepen things up and add a little more definition, I went in with Cocoa Bear using the Morphe m431 brush and just swipe that on the outer part of the lower lash line.
I’m just applying some mascara to my lower lash line. This is the Maybelline lash sensational, which I’ve been loving. It’s a little bit difficult to apply to the lower lash line though because the brush is a little bit bigger and I think I did end up getting some on my face, which I always seem to do so if you see that I’m just waiting for it to dry and then removing it.
I wanted my lips to also have a peachiness to it so I went in with the NYX soft matte lip cream in Stockholm, which is just a peachy pink color that really complements the look. Next I wanted there to be a nice sheen to this look, I didn’t want it to be a matte lip so I decided to top this off with the NYX butter gloss in Creme Brûlée, which also complements the peachiness of this look.
So once I’m done with that I’m finished with the look and it’s all ready to go. All right guys, that does it for this look. I hope you guys enjoyed it, if you did don’t forget to like and subscribe and I’ll see you in my next video.
