Good morning guys (10:25am here).
Today I’ll be doing a make up tutorial wooooo!
Inspired by 4MINUTE’s Cold Rain mv, the BNTgirls decided to each do a make up look based off of a group member in the MV. I got Ga-yoon, dark lips on point.
Check out the other BNTgirls’s links;
So let me take you guys on a winter wonderland, err, I mean show you how I did this (see picture below or video).
Alright let’s do this.
Using the Wayne Goss method for dewy skin, powder then foundation, I used;
LANCOME – LA BASE PRO (primer)
LANCOME – DUAL FINISH MATTE PORCELAINE 1 (powder)
LANCOME – PHOTOGENIC LUMENESSENCE BUFF6W (foundation)
I applied the foundation using my beauty blender for a more even natural finish.
Next using the NARS contour kit in Paloma, I contoured my face, creating. a more chiseled face, contouring my cheek bones and around the face.
Continuing with the contouring, I used my YSL Touche Eclat (2) to highlight portions of my face, as shown below.
After that I did my brows using:
ANATASIA BEVERLY HILLS – DIP BROW MED BROWN
ETUDE HOUSE – COLOR MY BROWS 1
Next up is the most intense part of the tutorial, the eye make up. Bling bling~
For my eyeshadows I used Urban Decay’s Naked2 Palette and theBalm’s Nude’tude Palette.
I first primed my eyes with Urban Decay’s Original potion primer all over my lids to make sure the shadows intensify and stay put all day.
Next I put NAKED 2 – FOXY all over my lid.
After that base it’s basically a gradation, or a build up of color that looks natural. I like to create a sort of smoked out outer corner V shape (like shown below in the big picture).
First off I’m going to use NAKED2 – TEASE in the crease of my eyelid and then with a pointed shadow brush I’m going to build the gradation (brown hues)
And then I’m going to put a light shimmer on the middle of my lids NAKED2 HALF BAKED.
After that I’m going to go back in with a lighter more skin colored highlighting shade ( NAKED 2 – BOOTY CALL) in the inner corners of my eyes and on my lower lash area creating a aegyo affect (supah cute).
After that I’ll highlight my brow bone again with NAKED2 – FOXY and tightline my eyes using CLINIQUE – GEL EYELINER TRUE BLACK.
After that my camera died, awks. So I had to charge it, in the mean time I put on false eyelashes and mascara.
HEROINE MAKE – LONG & CURL MASCARA
EYLURE – NATURALITES EYELASHES 020
Using Benefit’s Boi-ing (01) I covered up my lips to help create a finer lip in the end game.
Starting up the lip game, in this look the lipstick or the lips are the statement piece. All focus should go on the lips so a little prep goes a long way.
I’ll be using LANCOME – COLOR DESIGN in PRETTY BURGUNDY for my lipstick shade.
By using the X mark technique for the top of the lips, you make a more defined top lip.
With the lips being the statement piece of the look it never hurts to go back in with a concealer (in my case YVES SAINT LAURENT – TOUCHE ECLAT 2) and make sure the lips are on point.
After that, we’re finished. Ta-da, my 4MINUTE Cold Rain Gayoon look is finished, let me filter it up and we have the finished look!
