Lately, CG's direction is funky, modern and edgy  - Nervo (Sister DJ's), Janelle Monae, and P!NK. I love P!NK's makeup for Cover Girl's Clump Crusher campaign. It is graphic, detailed and not the easiest thing to do. However, I am always up for a challenge, especially a makeup one ^_^

S/S 2013 Trend - Light Bright

I am just itching to pack my winter garb away and blow the dust off of my brighter and lighter spring clothes. However, inevitably winter isn't quite finished with us. Instead I am going to do it with S/S 2013 makeup trends.  Zesty lemon yellows, florescent pinks, and cyan blue painted nails, eyes, and lips took the spot light. Even prim and proper hair at Oscar De La Renta, was not immune to the bright hues of the catwalks.  You may ask yourself, how the frack do I follow this trend? The trick is to keep it to one feature and keep it simple.

Natural Cut Crease

Products Used:
M.A.C e/s Patina, Brun, Concrete, Era
Annabelle Ivory
M.A.C. Pearlglide Eyeliner Undercurrent
M.A.C Opulash Optimum Black Mascara
Lancome Artliner Noir

Step 1. Use Patina all over the movable eyelid
Step 2. Take a narrow angled brush and dip into Brun. Trace the natural socket line of the eye
Step 3. Go over that socket line just above it, using upward strokes with the same angle brush and Brun. Be careful not to smudge that line as we want it strong.
Step 4. Take Era and a dense blending brush and go right above the smudged Brun to transition into the brow bone
Step 5. Take Ivory to highlight the brow bone and inner corners
Step 6. Take Brun and line under the eyes and smudge.
Step 7. Join the under eye to the corner and make a sharp line up to the end of the socket line
Step 8. Blend that sharp line inwards slightly
Step 9. Take Undercurrent and tight line the bottom eyes and smudge onto the Brun eyeshadow
Step 10. Take the Noir Artliner and line the upper eyes and create a wing.
Step 11. Use Concrete to soften the liquid liner.
Step 12. Curl lashes and apply mascara
* if your lines are not crisp enough, take concealer and run it along the edge of the shadow and liner.

Thanks for taking a peek, I hope you like it.
