As always I started with my base. This time I changed it a bit by applying foundation, I just got a new one and I’m really excited about it. Other than that I did the same as always. I applied concealer under my eyes and on any blemish I might have, did my brows and put on a good amount of lip balm. 



After doing my base, I applied the Colour Tattoo on my lid and into my crease as a base for the eyeshadow. I also applied some black eyeshadow into the roots of my lashes to make them seem fuller a the bottom and to hide any pink gashes that may peek through the lashes. I blended out the edges of the Colour Tattoo to make it more seamless. 



Afterwards I applied Poison on my lid almost all the way up to my crease, leaving just a small gab. I then took Derailed and applied it on the last of my lid and well into my crease. I know it looks crazy now, but it’ll be better once it’s all blended out. 



Next, I blended out the edges of the eyeshadow with a good amount of Brulee making sure that it is really well blended and defused. I then applied Derailed onto the roots of my lower lashes. I also put a skin coloured eyeliner onto my waterline to open up the eyes. I used a skin coloured  eyeliner instead of white because white can look too stark. 



After that I applied the Maybelline concealer under my eyes to clean up from any fall out. I then finished the eyes by putting on mascara. 



Next I contoured my face by mixing a light beige and a light grey eyeshadow followed by applying blush to my cheeks. 



I finished it all by first applying powder to prevent shine and put on highlighter to the highest points of my face. I then did my lips by dabbing on an orange lipstick and blended it in with my finger. I topped it with a clear gloss and then it’s done. BTW, don’t mind the red mark on my chest, I just scratched it before I took the picture. 



And then just a few with the glasses.

I hope you liked it, I especially like the orange lip. Have been wanting an orange lipstick for some time now and I think it’ll be very frequently used in the spring and summer time.
