I was scrolling through instagram while in my nightsuit and dirty hair, when I came across this pictire of Kim K.
I mean, isn’t she absolutely gorgeous?! Even if you like her or not, you have to agree that she is definitely the woman that made so many people love makeup; such as myself. This was her photoshoot for her palette with Mario Dedovanovic. The palette is stunning and I love it, but, I don’t have it. The main reason because it’s so damn expensive when you buy stuff from online— especially in Pakistan. *sigh*
So, I was suuuper inspired and, I thought to myself, ‘why not?’ I rushed to my closet and began to play with makeup. I primed my eye lid with my Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer in 52.
I always use concealer instead of eye lid primer because, it’s basically the same thing and concealer stays longer so helps your shadow stick longer. Next, I let it dry and then went for my Morphe 35W palette.
This palette is extremely blend-able and very easy to use. If you’re a beginner looking for fun but also neutral tones, I suggest buying this palette. I got it from Pretty Things on facebook for 4000rs which is 22$ in US. (Sad, I know)
Following the arrows in the crappy picture, i used the light brown with a Anastasia blending brush and applied it to my crease directly. I blended that with the white to make sure there were no harsh edges. I them took the orange-ish shade on the same brush, and placed it higher in the crease, leading to the brow: but lower than the brow. Don’t take it up to your brow, make sure there’s space for that. I then took my time blending both of the shades together in circular motions. I then took the white from the palette and made sure they were blended, and to blend even further.
Now, for the star of the show. I whipped out my Urban Decay x Gwen Stafani palette for the blue shade, “Danger.” This was also from Pretty Things and I got it for 4700.
This blue isn’t exactly spot on, but it’ll do the job. I wetted my finger and dipped into the shade and on to my lid. I don’t use brushes for applying shimmers to my lid, because they can never get the full pay off. I packed it onto the lid and it had a lot of fallout, so do your foundation after the eyes. But for me, I wasn’t wearing neither foundation nor concealer. Then, I blended out the blue somewhat into the crease because it wasn’t a true shimmer, it was sort of matte but also had shimmer in it. I blended that out until it looked nice. I then took the light brown and blended that onto my lower last line an also added a hint of black. I was about to do my waterline with black but, I completely forgot about it hahah.
I applied the L’oreal Volume Million Lashes in Fatale because it grabs on to every lash and coats it fully. And, because I have naturally curled lashes, it helps alot. No falsies because I suck at applying them and the bother me way too much.
I lightly filled in my eyebrows using my favourite eyebrow pencil. It’s the Soap and Glory “Archery” and I got it from Superdrug in Cardiff for 10£. I’m pretty sure you can go for NYX or Anastasia for brow products.
And, if you’re wondering, I only used two brushes for my eyes.
1. Anastasia dual ended brush for blending the shadows on the lid.
2. Lime Crime Velvetines tapered blending brush for my lower lash line.
3. Real Techniques multi use eye brush for highlighting.
For my highlight, I was too lazy to get one. So I used the shimmery pale gold from the Morphe 35W. It was extremely blinding and looked stunning on my skin.
For my lips, I used a Miniso lipstick in 08 soft nude. For the longest time, I hated this lipstick with a passion. Simply because it was too creamy, it slipped off easy and uh, I did not like it. But today, I layered it and didn’t apply it fully all at once. By doing this, it sort of took away the extra creaminess and made it look beautiful. I topped it off with a random lipgloss from 7 years ago. I know, I know, I should throw this out but it works really well. 😂
It turned out so beautiful and I loved how it looked at the end! I know it didn’t exactly turn out like Kim K, but I was really happy with the end result. I was so sad I had to take it off immediately, because I had to take a shower. Tell me how it is! ❤️
