Hello, I have been missing my makeup look posts so today I decided to create a new one. Since I have cut my hair I realized that I wear more makeup than I used to because I am too scared that someone might mistake me for a "dude" LOL. So I have plenty of ideas in mind and for this first post with my short hair I decided to do an heavy makeup look that is more appropriate to wear at night, for a party or a dinner.
As usual I started to even out my my lid area because it is naturaly darker than the rest of my face. I used a concealer(1) for that. I have minimum under eye dark cirles I only used a litlle bit of brightening concealer(2) under my eyes. At the roots of thetop and bottom lashes I applied a waterproof black eye pencil (3) and applied a black eyeshadow on top(4) all over my lids. It is difficult to get the eyeshadow at the roots of the lashes that is why I applied the black eyeliner first to make sure there was no space between the lashes and the black eyeshadow. I did not want to see my skin, only a black shadow. I blended the eyeshadow up to my crease. I finally applied 3 coats of a waterproof black mascara(5)
The eyes are very strong so for this look I just lightly filled in my eyebrows with a dark brown eyepencil(6). I brush them with a tooth brush to blend the brown pencik with my eyebrows.
As the weather is getting warmer I applied a long lasting foundation on my skin (7)
Orange is a big trend this summer and I love this color so I decided to add some touch of orange here and there.
The cheeks: I used one of my favorite blush(8) which is a mix of the color orange red and brown.
The lips: I applied a lip pencil wich has a coral/red/orange tone(9). 
The nails: I applied  a beautiful deep orange nail lacquer(10).
I set everyhting with a luminous powder(11).

  1. J'aime beaucoup ce makeup noir charbon, je le fais de temps en temps aussi mais surtout la nuit!!


    1. Merci; et c'est pas facile de trouver un bon fard à paupières mat noir et je dois avouer que j'ai eu une bonne surprise avec celui de Bourgeois. Autant je ne trouve pas les autres couleurs assez pigmentées pour ma carnation autant leur noir m'a bluffé!!!!! Il va rentrer dans ma liste des "indispensables" :-)
