College Series Tutorial: Law School

At last, we're down to the last tutorial for the College Series Tutorial! If you're around a Law School student, always think before you speak. Law students are sharp in their thinking and also their words. For intimidation, we're going for bold eyebrows and deep eyes with contoured cheeks.

This tutorial also signifies that you have only ONE more day to submit your entry for the College Series Giveaway. All entries should be in by May 1st 2009, GMT 8:00 11.59pm.

If you haven't been following the series, you may have missed Business, Fashion, Science, Culinary, Art, and Communication.

Read on for the tutorial...

To make sure that people take you seriously, as a law student, your makeup should be serious too. Keep your skin looking matte and shimmer free with a powder foundation. Your eyes should never giveaway your tiredness even if you've been going through law journals all night long. Creating deep set eyes will make them look more alert but still serious. Bold brows and cheek contour will bring strength to the entire look. The blush and lip should be kept earthy and free of obvious glitters.

Items Used:

Benefit Dr. Feelgood
I Nuovi Undercover Concealer in 4Y
MAC Lightful Ultracharge Foundation in NC40
e.l.f. Contouring Blush and Bronzer Duo (bronzer only)
Everyday Minerals Blush in Sunday Brunch

Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Intriguing Scarlet Warm Eyes Palette (Sweetjoy, Well Spiced, Real Drama)
I Nuovi D27 Eyeshadow in Cappuccino
NYX Eyeshadow in Deep Brown
Makeup Masala Gel Liner in Cocoa
Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara in Very Black
Daiso Auto Eyebrow Pencil
RMK Irresistible Lips C in 16 Gold Brown

Start by applying makeup base on your skin, followed by concealer where needed. Make sure that the under eye area is well concealed but still looks natural. Apply powder foundation until you reach your desired coverage but be careful to not go overboard so that you won't look pasty.

After prepping lid with eyeshadow primer, using a large shadow brush, apply a nude (Sweetjoy) wash all over the lid including the under brow area. With a small brush, apply a medium brown shade (Cappuccino) thickly above the crease line. At the base of the medium brown, apply a dark brown (Deep Brown) half way through the crease. Blend the crease with a large crease blending brush.

Further deepen the crease by applying more dark brown and blending again with the blending brush. Apply a light earthy (Well Spiced) color onto the lid and sweep the nude (Sweetjoy) wash over it for additional contrast.

To give the eye area more "life", apply a maroon brown (Real Drama) three quarter along the lower lash line. Fill the rest of the lower lash line with Sweetjoy. If you don't have much lid space left after creating the crease, apply eyeliner between the lashes. Curl lashes and apply mascara. The lashes should not look too prominent. Fill in the brows boldly but make sure to blend with a spoolie so that they look dark and strong but not harsh.

Done with the eyes. Yeah, both of mine don't look the same today.

Use an angled blush brush to contour. Apply bronzer as in the second picture, then blend well. Contour the jawline as well. Apply blush lightly above the apples and towards the temples. Complete the look with lipstick.
