Chanel 2013 Summer Haute Couture Inspired Makeup! [Photo Heavy]

Finally, a change of face! A friend of mine suggested me to do a look similar to that of the Chanel’s latest summer haute couture. Challenge accepted. Although I think I should’ve spent more time to model this look to be more finite but I leapt straight to doing the look when I was over at a close friend’s house. It’s been one of the more challenging looks that I’ve done but I had a lot of fun and quite a headache!!! Here’s what I came up with ^^:

Image

What I used:

Image

 

Image

 Face: Lioele Secret HD Powder, Lace, Felt (create a natural organic design to go on the undereye area!), Etude House Shading Corset in #5, MAC blusher in Supernova, Smashbox photo finish primer, Tony Moly Shimmer cube in brown, Gorgeous base perfect liquid foundation in 1Y-BP, You also need your fav pair of lashes~

 Image

Eye shadows: Gorgeous essential shades palette, Jill Stuart palette in 09 Mandarin citrine.

Image

Other: TooFaced shadow insurance, Lancome mascara in Hypnose, HUB Makeup mascara in Superlash black, DUO eyelash adhesive, Stila waterproof eyeliner in Stingray, MAC lash curler.

STEPS!!! 

Image

 1. Start off with a clean face. Apply your face primer and conceal any blemishes with a concealer brush.

2. Using a foundation brush, apply a matte foundation to the skin. We’re not going for a dewy look today because the look is very organic with a touch of dark and venetian element. [You may also decide to only apply the foundation on the eye area first and then apply foundation to the rest of the face after applying the eye makeup because it may get messy if you’re not used to the product you’re using ^~^]

3. Apply the eye primer all over the lids and the undereye area to secure the black shadows later.

4. [Now i’ve actually finished one side of the eyes before doing the other so you can see how I get the final result.] Using a cream liner, fill out the entire lid as shown.

5. Use a matte black, pat it over the cream base and repeat using a shimmery black. Blend out any harsh edges with a precision blending brush so it doesn’t get too messy.

6. Take the cream liner again and line your eyes. Bring the liner down to your bottom lashline thickly like so. Don’t worry if it’s messy, we’re going to blend it out right after!

7. So take a short flat shading brush and run the matte black shadow over the cream bottom line you just made and blend it out with the top shadow.

8. Next, use a clean bullet brush and apply it to the inner corner of your eyes.

9. Use the precision shadow again, with the TINIEST amount of shimmery black, blend out the white slightly.

10. Using a medium sized shader, apply a shimmery dark brown shadow to the eye sockets so that it softens the black.

11. Now for the fun/ trickier part. Take the lace design that you had prepared. Place the lace on the outer areas of the eye and take the matte shadow and apply it carefully over the lace to create the delicate design. Continue this step until you are satisfied with the amount of lace pattern on the face.

12. Afterwards, take the lovely design cutout that was prepared earlier and apply lashglue and paste it over the lace design. Make sure the lace design still peeps through!

13. Slim and bring out the cheek bones by contouring the hollows of your cheeks and jawline~

14. Apply a dusty rose blush.

15. Highlight the high points of your face. Nose, cheeks, chin, forehead.

16. Contour the nose!

 17. Fill in the brows. Make sure they’re thick and defined.

18. Apply the falsies and a matte lip ❤

Here’s the final look:

De Rose of Día de los Muertos- Day of the Dead Makeup!

Helloo my lovelies! How’re you all going today? I finally mustered up enough time to sit my fat backside down and figure how to do a requested makeup look from my friend! She drew out a rough diagram and I just sorta.. adjusted it to my face and stuff like that. Hahah. Oh and the product list will be at the end :).  I call this: 

De Rose of Día de los Muertos~
Image
Let’s get started! This will be a long tutorial!
Image
 
1. You want to start off with a really clean and moisturised face. -And i mean REALLY MOISTURISED because the thick white foundation will dry out your skin. Then use a makeup fix as a security for your makeup to last. I used MAC fix plus.
2. Use a face primer as a base. This is really important because it helps spread the foundation properly. Make sure to spread this down to your chin and neck area!
3. Now apply your white foundation or white face-paint! Apply it all over the face, lips, neck and chin. Then blend out using your fingers or a sponge. I’m not sure if i like using a brush for this step because with the white leaves obvious streak marks and leaves your brush… pretty hard to clean. So my fingers have been my best friends LOL. Easy maintenance.
4. Depending on the colour palette of your design, take a coloured liner or lip pencil (or if you don’t have the right colour take your lightest lip pencil) and start marking out the design. If your design is vibrant in colour like mine then i would avoid using black or grey because they’re dark and would be annoying to erase mistakes. To mark out your design, I recommend doing it in “layers”. What I mean is do the large shapes first and after filling those out then add smaller details.
5. Using a concealer brush (preferably synthetic because it’s easier to clean and you will be using it again later…) blend out the marks and gradate the colours and define the lines.
Image
6. For this next step you may use eyeshadows but I used cream face colours which I for me is easier to blend the colours over this surface and highly blend-able with fingers as well. To create the gradation from red to pink, I mixed the red cream colour with my white cream foundation and slowly adjusted the colours with the same concealer brush, applying it to however i wanted it for the design.
7. Now that you’ve got the hang of doing the details and adjusting colors, go ahead and add in the rest of the details. You might want to try it first on the back of your hand as some colours will come out a little bit more unexpectedly in different shades while working on an unfamiliar colour surface. With my nose i outlined with a black eye pencil. Filling in the shape, adding crosses and such with a black cream colour with another concealer brush and then finalising it with using an angled brush and a black gel liner.
For the Heart I filled it in with a bright red lip liner and packed on the red cream colour on top. I smoothed the edges with concealer brush (1) and defined the tip of the heart with black.
Then for the swirly design i went in with a lime crime liquid white eyeliner.
I went to contour the hollows of my cheeks, jawlines and the outer rim of my face with a dust brown rose eyeshadow and packed it on with a massive round top eyeshadow brush. 
My lips actually started cracking here so I went straight to putting lip ointment on.
8. So continuing on with the design i used a dust rose eyeshadow to fill in the petals i drew out with the first lip pencil. Then I went over the outline with the white liquid liner.
I went back to the lip… hahah. Using a dark dust rose lipstick I used a flat concealer brush to pat down a flower pattern over my lip. Then I simply drew on the stitches with the black gel liner.
9. At this time you should be getting quite familiar with adjusting the colours on your face so continue with adding on details and making it pretty : ) For my chin I drew a little heart and filled it out with lip liner and blended it with with white foundation to create the pink.
10. Line your eyes with the gel liner and line with liquid liner after. and apply falsies!!! Touch up your makeup and do your hair xD
