Step by step

For the first step, let’s start with the skin. Distribute the base over the face and apply it with your fingers or with the help of a brush.

Then, apply a little concealer on dark circles, pimples and spots that bother you, with the help of a sponge, giving light taps.

Then, apply the illuminator to the cupid’s bow, that curve of the lips, and also below the eyebrow to brighten the look.

After the illuminator, apply the blush on the cheekbones to give a healthy face. The blush can be the color you prefer, more pink or brown.

To finish the skin, you can apply the powder to seal the make up. Now for the eyes.

Take some of the white eyeshadow and apply lightly at the beginning of the movable eyelid, very close to the nose.

Then, take some of the silver eyeshadow and blend at the end of the white, creating a second layer of color.

Then, at the end of the eyelid, take a little black and tap it lightly, mixing the end of the silver with the beginning of the black.

Try to blur the colors lightly and slowly, until you create the sequence: white – silver – black.

Apply black or white eye liner to the waterline and then mascara to look up.

Finally, let’s go to the lips! Choose the nude lipstick of your choice and apply!

The purpose of this makeup is to highlight the eyes and make the mouth more sober. So, did you like it?
