Heyya Bunnies :*
A lot of you wanted me to film a makeup tutorial, I always wondered how I am supposed to put my camera to catch everything and still I can see what I am doing rn (good lighting included).
I am a person learning by doing, so I just did it.
And I am quite confident with the result.
At first I wanted to just add the text over the video but I figured it's easier to record my voice.
In the end it's not that easy as I thought. I sped up the video so much, so it isn't too long,
that I didn't really had time explaining anything and sometimes the speed got me speechless too haha
So I decided to add everything here, that I feel that has to be added but I either forgot while recording or couldn't focus on explaining further.
I always had problems with finding my skintone because I have an olive type of colour and the makeup being sold here is either orange or pinkish. At some point I decided to just mix two colours together.
Both Foundations are with included sunscreen, so I don't have to put another layer on top or under it, which would be too thick for my skin.
I have very greasy skin, so instead of highlighting it, like most people want to, I want to make it as matte as possible. Because y'know, give it only 30min. and my natural "highlighter" will be shining through.
Throughout the day, I am simply wiping the excess grease off. I don't put powder on top of it again.
The powder I use is from a skincare brand called CV, and this is the only powder I like to use.
When I started using it, my skin stopped immediately breaking out with acne after I wear makeup.
There are three main "cores" of an eyemakeup when you use eyeshadow.
It's not necessary doing it that way but it does make it look more clean and shiny:
The front "accent", the middle and the end..the so-called "tail", at least that's how I call it.
I only applied accent and middle for this tutorial, I might film another to explain the cores more in detail.
The goal of the cores is to get your eyes look more contoured.
The middle can be in any colour of your choice.
The tail either has to be brown, black or the same colour but darker.
The accent has to be white, beige, yellow or any light colour. It will open your eye.
I like to emphasize the accent with another layer of silver eyeliner.
Don't forget to blend it out with a blending brush.
Do not use it on top of your makeup, it will brush it off again. Instead just circle around the "edges" to make them more smooth.
I explained in this blogpost how to draw your eyeliner.
But using a khol eyeliner is just as essential and can change the whole look.
Wether you use a black or brown one, wether you draw the complete waterline or wether you use a white eyeliner will change the whole look.
Khol eyeliner is a helpful tool to make lashes fuller and I like to use a black eyeliner on my top waterline to blend the lashes in. The issue with black eyeliner is, it makes the eye look smaller.
So if you intend to make a big "dolly" eye, black eyeliner might play through your game.
Instead I use it only in the middle of the bottom waterline, right where my CL (Circle Lenses) are.
My CL all have a black circle to make the eyes look bigger, by adding a black line on my waterline it will increase the size again.
If you have small eyes and a black eyeliner might be too much, I recommend using a brown one.
It's dark as well, but it's not as "aggressively" working like a black one.
Using a white or nude eyeliner on your bottom waterline will increase your eyesize.
If you're new to using eyeliner on your waterline, try pushing your lashes up, you waterline won't be directly on your eyeball and makes it easier to apply.
Please note, that there are special eyeliner like khol eyeliner for your waterline.
DON'T USE LIQUID EYELINER OR SIMILIAR, IT WILL IRRITATE YOUR EYE AND IT MIGHT BURN PAINFULLY.
Since I once had an eye-infection, my eyes became sensitive so I only use natural cosmetics directly on my eye (khol eyeliner and mascara).
I, in fact, believe that contouring your nose isn't as necessary in hime than it is i.e. in manba, ganguro etc. However it makes your makeup more complete, so you might emphasize more on highlighting your nose.
I personally feel like my nose is looking bigger on camera than it actually is, so I focus on a deep contouring around my nose tip.
I also explained this in detail in my blogpost. When applying the top lash, I put it in the middle first without pushing it so it doesn't glue down and pull the outer part of it first to the end of my eyeliner.
Then I work myself up to the front and push the outside downwards. It will create a new eyeshape.
Using a black lashglue will blend it in with your eyeliner and your natural lashes.
When applying the bottom lashes, I do it the other way around,
I grab the front/middle-part of it and apply it right under my CL, push the front part in and then take the outer part to glue it down where my newly created upper lashline ends.
Leave a gap inbetween upper and bottom lashes, otherwise they will rip each other out.
I used a transparent lashglue, so the result of the makeup will look lighter.
(Remember: black eyeliner has a more aggressive vibe to it, by using as less as possible, the result will be "softer". That applies to lashglue as well.)
So that's pretty much it.
I hope I helped some of you out and would like to know, if you want more makeup tips in the future :)
