Hi, I’m Lisa Sim for Watchmojo and today, we’re here with Veronica because last night, she partied like a rock star but you’d never tell by the way I did her makeup. So let’s just go over of what you should really do to make it look like you didn’t party, you’ve been a good girl. What we’re going to start with is just an all over base, something that’s going to cut their redness, has to have a little bit of yellow.
You know, alcoholic really dilates all the blood vessels; you get mixed with all the bloodshot and everything. So we’re going to take a little bit of warm base, it’s one of my favorite foundations from SIM Minerals. Start in the areas that really require the most cover usually around the nose, forehead, the chin, just under the eyes. Basically that’s where all the broken capillaries happen. Let’s just say you’re puking last night like everything like blows up, this is the way to conceal it. A little bit of yellow is going to like absorb the redness.
Sometimes end of the night you kind of look green. So we’re going to go into Sandione which is one of a bronzer shade. It has a little bit more warmth to it so we’re just going to hit the cheeks, middle of the forehead, this side as well. So it just basically looks like you did get a little bit of sunlight. You hadn’t been partying in a darkened nightclub.
Next step is all about concealer. Conceal your skin. So we’re going to use Wonder Cover. It’s a very concentrated concealer. You want to apply it with a camouflage brush. This one’s called a pointed camouflage and it’s a cat tongue shape. It’s flat. It’s kind of like an oval but it comes to a point at the tip ideal for really fitting into the hollow of the under eye. Don’t go all the way up until the lash line, it takes away that little bit of natural shading that happens. It actually makes the eye looks smaller. Really concentrate the concealer into the deepest part of the hollow and then just follow up by going anywhere else that has a little bit of excess redness until showing through.
So when it comes to having eyes that are just really pochy, you know, what we want to do is when you’re talking to people, you want them to look up. So it’s all about like lifting everything. So doing the eyebrows, making sure that when you do shape the brow that you’re really filling in the hairs that are at the very top of the brow. That way, it automatically gives up that lifted appearance.
Brush it through afterwards that looks natural, rule of thumb, blend it out like crazy. You don’t want any hard lines. We’ll switch over to just a little angle and we’re going to like backup the lashes. So we’re going to just do one with the lash line but even thicker. In that way, all the attention goes up, no one’s going to be looking actually going on underneath.
Veronica also has some blush extensions going on which is a god send for those days are like have no abilities, no dexterity until I use an eyelash, curler, and like the mascara. You’re not going to end up with the blobs all over the place. So eyelash extensions, thumbs up. So basically, line the back of the lashes. You want to get at least 20 degree angle and just extend a little bit pass the eye and blend out with the fingertips. That way, when the eyes are open, the angle of the eye, the trajectory is going to be again, lifting it up, not drawing it down.
Another hint is taking something that has little bit of shimmer to it, maybe something that’s a little bit more golden and we’re going to use this one on the lid. All the darkness happens on that inner quarter. So really start right into the hollow, closest to the nose, and then blend towards the outer corner. And really just leave it on the lower lid. You don’t need to like put it up underneath the arch of the brow. The next place that you want to do that is actually on the inner corner and underneath a little bit. It’s going to look like you actually had eight hours sleep.
I highly recommend, this is a two pencil but you can always take a very light blue even a white eyeliner pencil. And what you’re going to do is you’re going to do on the waterline. So by doing this, we’re going to cut the redness. We’re also going to make the white of the eye look bigger. Next step would be drama or tension there. What I’m going to use on use probably lip stain, it’s brings life to the face.
So what I’m using is the Outlast from Cover Girl. It doesn’t look like you’ve tried too hard. It’s not like a layer that’s coming off the lips. Do you know what I mean by that? It’s not like, “Hey, my lips” and then oh, like five inches of lip gloss. So this is really embedding the color inside in that way it’s like full proof. You know I can drink five cups of coffee and it’s not going to come off on the cup.
So to finish of the look is that we’re going to add a little bit of color to the middle of the apples of the cheeks. In that way, it looks really flush. It looks like a really, really healthy complexion and hit the apples. In that way, it looks like you’ve just came off a jog or something. You have the stamina. You’re healthy.
And then the last step is just make it look all fresh and dewy and add some hydration back to the skin because I don’t know if you realize that but like alcohol deprive your skin of so much moisture. You’re like dries the bone the next morning type of thing. so we’re going to just mist it, then close your eyes. It takes away any powdery finish, at least a dewy finish and makes the skin looks refreshed and hydrated and you’re ready to roll.
I’m Lisa Sim for Watchmojo, thanks a lot Veronica for being our model for party like a rock star.
