Make up by my sister

I am a girl that spends a lot of time in the morning applying make up. Most of the time I use a moisturiser, BB cream, pencil line on top of my eye lit and below and top it of with some mascara. When I am in the mood I might use my eyeliner and a blush. That’s it.

My sister was in London a few weeks ago and she looked so healthy and had great eye brows. How does she do it. So I asked and she showed me (and you) how she applies her make up.

First the before picture. I hesitated to publish this picture because my eyes look so old and tired. That’s why I decided to add a smaller pictures of the before eyes.

The orange shades in the corner of the eyes isn’t eye shadow. Its my own and totally natural. I find it rather special.

After applying the BB cream my sister started with the make up.

These are the products that we used:

1. Estee Lauder mascara / 2. Blush from Catrice / 3. Lipstick Rimmel nr 128 ‘Starry Eyed’ / 4. Estee Lauder BB Cream / 5. Eye shadows mid brown (yellow star) and dark brown (blue star) / 6. Mat highlighter by Catrice / 7. Tweezerman / 8. Mac liquid fine liner / 9. and 10. eye shadow brushes / 11. eye brow pencil and brush

Here are the steps:

Face make up

  1. Put some highlighter with a firm small brush in the eye corner and just under the eye brows
  2. A light pink eye shadow on the eye lids
  3. With a mid brown eye shadow you draw the arcade bow with a small brush
  4. Put some dark brown eye shadow in the outside corners and blend it upwards (round movements towards the highlight)
  5. Use a eye brow brush to shape your eye brows. Colour them gently with a brow pencil. At the end use the brush again
  6. Draw a fine line eyeliner as close as you can to your lashes. Stop a little further then half way. My sister used the Mac liquid fine liner
  7. Apply the mascara in several layers until you have long and full lashes
  8. A pinky blush on my cheeks to give me some health
  9. To complete the picture, a light layer of lipstick applied with a lip pencil (Rimmel nut 128 ‘Starry Eyed’)

Here are some pictures we made during the process.

I was very pleased with the result and a few days later I bought an eye brow pencil and brush. On my shopping list is a highlighter and some brown eye shadow. I loved the look and keep on trying to re-create it. Thank you Isabelle.

      Mooi, werkelijk heel erg mooi. Die zus van jou weet het en kent het!
      Het is even wat werk, maar dan heb je ook wat.
      tip: long lastig lippenstift Max Factor Lipfinity 2 step lipstick. Dat is te vergelijken met verf en blijft de hele dag zitten. Je doet daar een ‘vettig’ iets over. Dat zit in dezelfde verpakking. Twee stappen dus. Is er vast ook van andere merken.
