A few days ago I had an idea: why don’t I do my best friend’s makeup and post about it?
I had some new makeup products I needed to try out and review so I thought I’ spice it all up and do something different.
Doing another person’s makeup isn’t easy, let me tell you, but I think it turned out pretty well.
Here are the products I used:
My best friend is Linda, I’ve known her for literally forever; we met when we were only months old and we’ve never been apart since then.
Here are a before and after comparison:
I opted for a glowy, bronzy look because I think that it’s perfect for summer and it really stands out on her thanks to her fair skin tone.
I started by using the moisturizing cream by Frezy Derm as a primer and then applied the Garnier BB cream in the shade light.
Under the eyes I applied the Wow! Skin concealer in medium, which is actually very fair so perfect to cover dark circles; I then put it between the brows, on the bridge of the nose, on the cupid’s bow and on the chin to highlight.
To contour I used the Define & Conquer kit which contains a dark shade and a light one, which I used to set the concealer all over the face; with the darker powder I drew a three starting from above the temple, following below the cheekbone an going down to the jawline.
On the cheeckbones I used the Wow! Skin highlighter which gives a perfect and shiny glow and then a Kiko blush in a coral shade.
For the eyes I mainly used the Easy On The Eye palette: first I applied the primer and then I set it with the yellowish powder on the palette.
I then used a light brown on all the lid and crease to create an even base, and then pass to a darker one that I applied on the outer corner of the eye, bringing it towards the inner center.
On the center of the lid I put a cream, metallic, gold eye shadow.
I smudged the same dark brown under the lower lashes and added a bit of black pencil from Diego Dalla Palma.
I finished the look with a thin line of the Lacquer Liner eyeliner and a few coats of the Long Lash mascara.
On the lips I didn’t do much. I fist used the nude Lip Crayon and then applied a bit of red lipstick from the All Put Pout palette on the center of the lips and blended it into the nude one.
I’m not a professional makeup artist as you can see but I was pleased with the result and as first attempt at doing makeup on someone else I’d say it didn’t go bad, what do you say?
The Seventeen products are always of great quality and very versatile, you can use them in various ways. They last long and the colors are very pigmented and vibrant.
Their products not only have a pretty packaging and are of good quality, but they’re also inexpensive and I’m sure that another university student like me, that has the uni fee, books, food and other million things to pay for, will surely appreciate it.
What’s your best makeup look for the summer? What o you think about mine? Tell me in the comments!
