Lisa Sim: Hi, it’s Lisa Sim for WatchMojo.com and today, I'm going to show you how to get the Burlesque look. We have Mihaela, here as my lovely model and we’re going to do a few simple tricks for getting that forlorn Burlesque look.
First thing we’re going to do is use a little bit of primer. This is my favorite thing to use before hand. A little light gel, it has a little silicon based to it. It helps the makeup stand longer so that when you’re up on stage doing you’re whole fan dance, the makeup will stay perfectly true.
We’re going to follow with, this is called the perfecting liquid foundation. It has an SPF15 in it. This is also from our band. When you go top apply with this sponge, saturate this sponge with water first. Get it really moist and then apply the foundation. So I'm not trying to wipe it on, I'm really trying to press the foundation into the skin.
What we’re going into now is just a little bit of press powder. We used that with a large power brush, so you can see right away that it modifies. It’s going to help set the foundation.
We’re going into the large eye shadow brush. I'm going to put on the base color and this one is called vanilla and we’re going to apply this all over the lid and really go from corner to corner, from lash line all the way up onto the brow.
Next we’re going to move into the shading brush. So it’s like half the size at the eye shadow brush and we’re going to use this into the crease. With that one, I'm going to go into loose slate, really nice against brown eyes, a little metallic. What I’ll do is I’ll do a dry coat of this all over the lower lid up into the crease. And then I go back over it, wet with the same color. So I'm just taking a little bit of water, so make sure to fill in the whole lower lid. And you can see that the metallic that is in the blue slate, really pops now and it’s very, very reflective.
I'm actually going to take our blush color and I'm going to use that in the crease and just the peaks, just above onto the brow bone. So this is going to be something that unifies that ties into from the eyes, to the cheeks, to the lips, so there isn’t infirmity going on. Just keeping your eyes open, starting in the outer corner. So just warms everything up, does a little bit. It’s more about bringing up your shape that actually saying a lot of color here, because we’re going to really contain the color onto the lower lid.
I can go back into a lighter shade now and just highlight underneath the arch of the brow and with that one, I'm going to use snow, so it’s a real pure white. I'm going back to the large shadow brush and there’s no lip up her arch a little bit and run that underneath. Remember just to bring that color out towards the temple that will elongate the eye.
I’m going to switch over to the slant or angle brush, highly important. And we’re going to use this to line the lower lash line in the same slate blue and to make sure that its stays on like a real eye liner. Again, wet it beforehand and we’re really going to go corner to corner with this color.
Just make sure when you’re doing this, connect the corners, you know, like you have a line on the bottom, a line on top, make sure they connect to the corner.
Okay. Whatever I have had left over, I will go into the outer corner and just bump that area up a little bit.
