Look, I understand that most of you are sitting at a desk right now, going through your email and about to skip over this blog about rock star makeup because who has time for that? 5-minute makeup routine, yes, click…..rock star? I know, I know. But, I also know that everyone watched last night’s Super Bowl Half Time show and I definitely know that deep down in every woman is a Sasha Fierce. So, stay with me. We all need to slay on the weekends and here is how you do it….
So, recently I have been working with this little bad ass named Aubrie Sellers. If you haven’t already heard of her, go check her out for legit the coolest female sound in country music right now. Her new album dropped last week and you will love it. Trust me. I created this look on Aubrie for her album release show because as I said, she rocks. Here are the steps and products I used, plus some tips for taking it to the streets! Put your hot sauce in your bag, buckle up and click the links to shop the products!
Start with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion to hold the look in place
Apply ‘Blackout’ from Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette over entire lid and blend lines around crease
Next, use ‘Tease’ from the same palette to shade in crease and give eye definition. **Make sure to blend out all lines by using a circular motion with your eyeshadow brush
Layer, MAC Studio Eye Gloss in ‘Spank Me’ on top of lid. Do this using an eyeshadow brush and use sparingly. This is what gives the eyes that glossy look, but it can be messy if you use too much. I like to use just enough to cover the lid once.
I used MAC Prolongwear Concealer on us both.
I set everything with Laura Mercier Translucent Powder.
Started by giving cheeks a slight contour by using Benefit Hoola Bronzer and drawing a line with my bronzer brush from the top of my ear to the base of my cheekbone (basically where the apple starts) and then blending.
Finish with NARS The Multiple Stick in ‘South Beach’ on the apples of the cheek.
**Major tip for long lasting makeup, especially with such a heavy eye, once I completed the look, I sprayed the entire face with Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray.
Hope you guys give this look a try. Send me pics at [email protected]!
