Eyes and Brows:
I lightly set and laminated my brows using the Got 2B Glued Spiking Glue ($6.49 for 6 oz / 170 g of product at Ulta). I then used the Milani Weekend Brow Pen ($8.99 for 0.03 fl oz / 0.89 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade Espresso (the deepest shade) to feather in hair like strokes throughout my brows. I then used the E.L.F. Cosmetics Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($5 for 0.002 oz / 0.057 g of product at Ulta) in the shade dark brown. I applied a piece of tape to the outer edge of both eyes. I then took the P. Louise Primer & Base ($14 for 0.507 fl oz / 15 mL of product on their website) in the shade Rumour 0.5 (pale nude) and carved out my brow lines and primed my lids. This eye look was created using the Juvia’s Place The Royal Nubian 6 Pan Palette ($15 for 0.47 oz / 13.2 g of total product on their website making it 0.078 oz / 2.2 g and $2.5 per shade). ↓
Starting with the matte cool tone lilac shade (2nd shade on the 2nd row) and a fluffy crease brush I applied it to the full lid (lash to brow). ↓
Using a short fluffy crease brush and the matte dusty purple shade (1st shade of 2nd row) I fluffed that all through the crease blowing it up to the brow bone but not going past that. ↓
Taking a stout crease brush and the matte royal purple shade (3rd shade of 1st row) I applied it on an angle going from the out 2/3 of the mobile lid up to the tails of my brows. ↓
On my finger I used the metallic purple with a lilac flip shade (1st shade of the 1st row) and patted that over the inner 2/3 of the mobile lids. ↓
On a tiny detailer brush I tapped some of the NYX Long Lasting Glitter Primer ($6.50 for 0.33 fl oz / 9.76 mL of product at Ulta) and the going into the holographic lilac and pink with a blue reflect glitter shade (the last shade of the 2nd row) I patted that the inner 1/3 of the mobile lids. ↓
Going back into the metallic purple with a lilac flip shade (1st shade of the 1st row) on a short shadder brush I fluffed this shade over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lids to help blend everything together. ↓
To deepen the outer v of the crease I combined the matte royal purple shade (3rd shade of 1st row) with the shade Shawata from the Juvia’s Place Warrior II palette on a short fluffy detailer brush I created triangles in the outer v of the crease blowing it out towards the tails of the brows but not going all the way up to the brows. ↓
On a pencil brush I took the matte royal purple shade (3rd shade of 1st row) I buffed out the harsh edges of the outer v of the crease. I noticed that this caused the outer v of the crease to get patchy.. there was a small part of the v that wouldn’t take the pigment and I fix it in the last step of this pictorial. ↓
I went back in with a fluffy crease brush and the dusty purple shade (1st shade of 2nd row) to further blend the deeper purple out. ↓
I removed the tape from the edges of my eyes and cleaned up the fall out on my under eyes using the Good Molecules Silicone-Free Priming Moisturizer ($12 for 1.7 fl oz / 50 mL of product at Ulta) and a cotton bud. ↓
For the lower lash lines I started with a tapped crease brush and the matte dusty purple shade (1st shade of 2nd row) I created a deep drop shadow. ↓
On a tiny pencil brush using the dusty purple shade (1st shade of 2nd row) I deepened the drop shadow just a bit. ↓
On another tiny pencil brush using the matte royal purple shade (3rd shade of 1st row) I deepened the lash lines . ↓
I lined the lower water lines using the NYX Slide On Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner ($8 for 0.04 oz / 1.13 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Pretty Violet (mid toned violet). ↓
I lined the upper lash lines tight to the lashes using the KVD Beauty Tattoo Liner ($22 for 0.019 fl oz / 0.56 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade Trooper (satin black) to help camouflage the lash bands of my falsies. ↓
At this point is where I wanted to try and fix the patchiness in the outer v of the crease that is shown bellow. ↓
To fix the patchiness of the outer v of the crease by using the Juvia’s Place The Violets 6 Pan Palette ($14 for 0.47 oz/ 13.2 g of product on their website making it 0.078 oz /2.2 g and $2.33 per shade) using the matte dusty deep egg plant (the 3rd shade of the 1st row) on a pencil brush I went over the whole outer v of the crease in circular buffing motions dipping back into the shadow over and over until the patchiness completely disappeared. I then highlighted the inner corners of my eyes using the I Heart Revolution x Disney Story Book Highlighter ($10 for 5.8g / 0.2 oz on their website) in the shade Belle (champagne gold ) ↓
I primed my face using the Makeup Forever Step 1 Primer Pore Minimizer ($37 for 1 fl oz / 30 mL of product at Sephora). I contoured the cheek bones, jaw line, bridge of the nose and forehead using the NYX Wonder Stick ($12 for 0.28 oz / 7.94 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Deep. For foundation I’m using Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation ($36 for 1.08 fl oz / 32 mL of product at Sephora) in the shade #120 (light with neutral undertones). I bronzed the perimeter of my face using the E.L.F. Putty Bronzer ($6 for 0.35 oz / 9.92 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Sun Kissed (the 3rd shade). I cleaned up my nose contour and concealed my under eyes using the Wet n Wild MegaLast Incognito All-Day Full Coverage Concealer ($4.99 for 0.18 fl oz / 5.32 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade Fair Beige (the lightest shade). I highlighted the high points of the face using the bareMinerals Bare Pro Glow Liquid Highlighter ($29 for 0.47 fl oz / 14 mL of product on their website) in the shade Free (champagne).
Cheeks, Lips, Lashes and Touch Ups:
For cream blush I used the NARS Liquid Blush ($30 for 0.5 fl oz / 15 mL of product at Sephora) in the shade Torrid (warm coral with golden shimmer). I set my under eyes using the RCMA No Color Powder ($14 for 3 oz / 85.05 g of product at Beautylish) and the rest of my face using the Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Baking & Setting Powder ($34 for 0.71 oz / 20 g of product at Sephora) in the shade Cupcake (fair to light skin tones. pink undertones brighten and disguise under-eye darkness). I touched up my blush, bronzer and highlighter using the Beauty Bakerie Neapolitan Bar ($18 for 0.39 oz / 11.07 g of total product at Ulta making it $6 and 0.13 oz / 3.69 per shade). I lined my lips and filled in the sides using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (No longer available) in the shade TBH (deep violet) and I topped the lip off with the NYX Powder Puff Lippie ($8.50 for 0.40 oz / 11.34 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Senior Class (deep true purple – matte). I gave my lashes 1 coat of ColourPop BFF Mascara ($9 for 0.24 oz / 7 g of product on their website) in the shade Black on Black and then popped on a pair of KoKo Lashes ($7.99 on the Lady Moss website) in the style Queen B. I set my face using the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Setting Spray ($5.99 for 152 fl oz / 45 mL of product at Ulta). I touched up the t zone only 1 time today and I used the MAC Pressed Blotting Powder ($30 for 0.423 oz / 12 g of product on their website) in the shade Medium to do that.
Juvia’s Place The Royal Nubian 6 Pan Palette ($15 for 0.47 oz / 13.2 g of total product on their website making it 0.078 oz / 2.2 g and $2.5 per shade) is billed as a beautiful selection of royal purple and lilac shades. There are no names for the shade but the shades from left to right and up and down are: Purple with a lilac flip – metallic, deep purple with a blue reflect – metallic, royal purple – matte, dusty purple – matte, cool tone lilac – matte and lilac and pink with a blue reflect – holographic glitter.
I give this palette a solid O+ : The metallics are creamy and pigmented and the mattes, for the most part, are easy to blend and work well together, however the deepest purple did not work well with a black shadow that is the same formula and by the same company… now, purple is one of the hardest colors to formulate so I’m not that bothered that I had a little trouble. The best way to correct a shadow that is patchy after introducing a deeper shade is just to find a deeper shade within the same family as the lighter shade… for instance, this look I did today, where I tried to deepened the purple by mixing it with black… it went patchy and so I took a blackened purple and used that to correct the patchiness… another way to avoid this is to just use the deepest form of the shade you are working with…. I should have just went in with the deepest purple instead of trying to deepen the purple I was working with…..
And with that today’s walkthrough and pictorial is over….
I hope you have a great rest of your day/night 🌞🌜and that you’re in great spirits and health 😄🩺.
