College Series Tutorial: Fashion School

Posted Apr 15 2009 12:00am
Whether you're an aspiring fashion designer, make-up artist or even hair stylist, as a Fashion School student, looking GLAM is a daily routine. This is probably the only school that you can go all out and nobody can say anything about it! Regardless of day or night, there are no restrictions against full cover foundation, smokey eyes, glitters, false lashes and nude lips.

I had so much fun with this tutorial! And I hope you'll enjoy it too.

We're aiming for black smokey eyes brought to the NEXT level!

Using black (and glittery!) eyeshadow can be messy so this time, I'll be doing the eyes before the foundation. After prepping lid with Urban Decay Primer Potion, apply Slate cream eyeshadow right beneath the crease and blend upwards with finger. Next, take a tapered crease brush to apply Matte Black eyeshadow on the outer corner of the lid and bring the shadow into half of the crease. With an eyeshadow brush (e.l.f.), apply Charcoal on the rest of the black base in patting motions to prevent fall outs.

Blend Era eyeshadow right above the crease to soften the harsh black edges. Apply Ricepaper as a highlight. To remove glitters that have fallen under the eyes, try using tape. After that, apply Hot Orange on 3/4 of the lower lash line with a small brush and drag the color surpassing the outer corner of the eye.

With the same brush, apply Matte Black over the Hot Orange. Brighten up the inner corner of the eye with Ricepaper. Apply Charcoal on the lid again for more intensity and join the upper lid shadow with the lower lash line. Line the upper lash line with black cream or liquid eyeliner.

Now that we're done with the eyeshadow, we can move on to the face. Prep skin with a silicone makeup base to make the skin appear as smooth as possible. Mix one part of liquid illuminzer with two parts full cover foundation. Apply generously on skin with a foundation brush. Thick layers of foundation tend to look very streaky so buff well with a synthetic buffer brush (e.l.f.)

Apply concealer on the entire under eye area and blend downwards to match the foundation. The concealer can be used to smoothen and clean the edges of the eyeshadow. Set the base with Silica Powder.

With the base complete, we're going to finish off the eye makeup. Fill in the brows with an eyebrow pencil. Make the brows look very solid and defined for a more edgy effect. Apply Matte White eyeshadow right under the arch for an extra lift. Before applying false lashes, curl and apply one coat of mascara on your natural lashes. Don't forget the lower lashes. Do a strip of lash glue on the back of your hand.

Run the spine of the false lash over the glue, wait for about 30 seconds and place the lashes. As it dries, push the lashes up with your finger. Doing this helps the lashes to stay up and not droop. Extend the lower lashes with a lenghtening mascara.

Using an angled cheek brush, apply bronzer into the hollows of the cheeks and along the jawline to contour.

Apply a matte berry-colored blush right above the contour and bring the color slightly to the apples of the cheeks. With a smaller brush, apply gold highlight on the cheekbones, nose bridge and chin.

Fill in lips with a nude lipstick and top off with a matching lip gloss.

Fuh!! Done!! That's a long tutorial!

I only wore this look for like 20 minutes then I removed everything and went to buy lunch...
