Cheeks: I'm keeping my face makeup pretty simple by lightly contouring with Ulta's Girlie Cheek Color and sweeping just a touch of Benefit's Sugarbomb onto my cheekbones.
Lips: For the day I'll be wearing Almay's Liquid Lip Balm in Rosy Lipped, a nude gloss. In the evening, I'm transitioning to Revlon's Red Velvet Lip Butter, a deep, creamy red.
[evening version, complete with mascara flakes]
Step 1: Prime the eyelids. I used Tarte's Creaseless 360 Eye Primer.
Step 2: Apply a shimmery beige cream shadow all over the eyelid and down around into the inner corner. I used Rimmel's ScandalEyes Waterproof Eyeshadow Crayon in Bulletproof Beige.
Step 3: Thinly line the lower lash line with a taupe pencil. I used Rimmel's ScandalEyes Kohl Kajal in Taupe.
Step 4: Gently smudge out outer third the lower lash line with a similarly colored eyeshadow. I used MAC's Satin Taupe eyeshadow.
Step 5: Lightly blend the same eyeshadow into the crease.
Step 6: Line the upper lash lien with a black eyeshadow or soft pencil, creating a small wing at the outer corner. I used NYX Black Eyeshadow.
Step 7: Smudge a burgundy eyeshadow along the outer third of the upper lash line. I used MAC Cranberry Eyeshadow.
Step 8: Line the waterline with a nude liner. I used Rimmel's ScandalEyes Kohl Kajal in Nude.
Step 9: Curl lashes and apply mascara. I used Covergirl's Clump Crusher.
To bump it up a little for the evening:
Step 10: Add a bit more of the burgundy shade to the outer v.
Step 11: Add black liquid liner to the outer half of the upper lash line. I used Soap&Glory's Supercat Pen Eyeliner.
Step 12: Add one or two individual lashes to the outer corner. While this looks nice and compliments the over all look, I'm pretty sure I won't actually do this. If I do, I'll be using ELF's Individual Lashes.
