This is the tutorial from last week’s inspiration. It’s Keira Knightley’s Anna Keranina world premiere. Her makeup artist was Lisa Eldridge.
Start with skincare. My happens to be tinted, but I’m trying to find a replacement, as I just use it for skincare. My awesome mauvey-neutral nail color, if you must know, is Sonia Kashuk mauvin’ on up. Did I tell you how much I love Sonia Kashuk products? They are so affordable and worth it. $4.99 at Target.
After Tarte Tinted Moisturizer, Inglot Foundation in YSM 41.
Apply soft grey over base of eyes. I used Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush and Inglot 501 DS.
Apply grey under out corner of eyes using a detailer or eyeliner brush. Mine is Real Techniques.
I then applied an Urban Decay UZI (charcoal grey) pencil in the same place – all along in the top (except for inner corner), and on the bottom of the outer edge.
Using the Real Techniques eyeliner brush, I applied a dark black along the top and the outer edge. This picks up where the soft grey and UZI pencil left off underneath the eyes to intensify the color closer to my eye, but I applied it in basically the same area. I used a wider brush with the grey and smudged it out softer. Now I have three layers of grey to black with greater intensities getting closer to my eyes, concentrating on the outer corners.
Blending together the orange and the plumy-red color from above (Inglot 407 Pearl and Inglot 74 AMC) , I made a “fleshy” toned color that I applied just above my outer V. This would be the top part of the crease. For me, it’s just above my crease.
Highlighter on the inner corners of my eyes is a must for me with almost any look. My highlighter color is the palest one in the pic above. (Inglot 08 Shine).
Brows are another must, and so easy with the Sonia Kashuk eyebrow quad. I love it. It was some of the best $10 I ever spent. I blend several colors together, usually adding a few strokes of the reddish-brown to bring out the tone in my hair.
Peachy-pink or pink blush. I like pink with grey-scale eyecolors. I see it a lot.
As many layers of lip products as you need to find the perfect color – which sadly, I could not quite achieve. But I liked the outcome anyway.
And this is the outcome:
OK I know it’s not Anna Keranina or Kiera Knightley. But that’s why I always say inspired by, see?
