So this was supposed to be the last tutorial for the 2011 V-day Tutorial line-up inspired "Terrified" performed by Katharine McPhee and Zachary Levi. Can't stop listening to that song! Katharine has such a beautiful voice and Zachary looks unusually sexy when he sings ;)
Anyway, I filmed the tutorial, edited it but Windows Movie Maker refuses to save the video. I've tried re-uploading the files and re-editing but nothing has worked. I haven't been able to find a decent video editor that doesn't crash or produce one error after another. Any recommendations would be much appreciated!
Read on for more pics, items used and explanation on how I did the look.
The music video has nothing to do with this look. The song simply made me think of golden shimmers and deep purples yet soft. Not exactly what I've envisioned but it's still a good combination.
First, I prepped the lid with Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden which is a soft matte yellow. Then, I dabbed a golden shimmer base (KATE Gel Liner in GD-1) on the inner lid. With the Stila #30 brush, I applied MAC Ricepaper (frosty golden beige) on the rest of the lid. After that, using a round crease brush, I applied MAC Sweet Chestnut (maroon) on the outer corner and blended it out with a tapered crease brush, bringing the color into the crease. Then, I placed Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Jet (deep purple) into the outer V and blend that out as well. I darkened the outer V with Urban Decay Black Dog (matte black) and blend. Following that, I applied MAC Pigment in Gold Dusk (frosty pale yellow) over the shimmer base. For the highlight, I used Lotree Eyeshadow in 07 which is a light beige.
Along the lower lash line, I applied Urban Decay Cobra (black with gold specks) and Gold Dusk in the inner corner. For eyeliner, I used Stila Smudge Pot in Pink Noir and then darkened it with Lotree Brush Pen Eyeliner. Just a slim (not too thin) line with a little wing. False lashes would look good with this makeup but a heavy load of mascara would work as well. I used Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara. I kept the brows lightly filled.
For the cheeks, I used MAC Blush in The Perfect Cheek, which is a a sheer matte muted pink. Then, I added some glow with Benefit Sugarbomb.
On the lips, I have on Anna Sui Lip Gloss C in 700. It's a sheer pink with light pink shimmers.
