Playing with Makeup #2June 24, 2015
Assalamualaikum and Hi!
So yesterday I was in that mood to play around with my makeup again. Yasss~ In my previous post (link provided above), you can see that I put on some warm colours which were maroon, brown, and burgundy eyeshadow, with brown-red eyebrows. But yesterday I was thinking to do something more into orange-ish eye makeup. And don't worry, this time I will draw my eyebrow back to the normal colour haha!
The first thing that I did was ofcourse to draw my eyebrow. I used a dark brown eyeshadow and applied it using a very thin flat eyeshadow. Then I applied some foundation on top and bottom of my brow to clean everything and to achieve that sharp looking eyebrow shape.

|Second step is to apply the foundation only on the top and bottom of the brows, then blend.|
Done with the eyebrow, moving on to the eyeshadows which is the most fun part here. First thing that I did was, I applied a shimmery yellow eyeshadow on my eyelid using only a finger. You can also use a matte yellow eyeshadow if you like (because I understand some girls don't like glittery and shimmery eyeshadows), but in my case here I prefer a bit of shine on my lid so I used that instead. But apparently my camera did not pick up the shimmer very well so it is looks kind of matte here.
Then I applied a mixture of both orange and shimmery brown colour (almost like a light brownish-gold colour) and I blend it on my upper crease using a fluffy eyeshadow brush. If you want the orange colour to pop out more, you can always add and build the colour as you go. But for me, I still wanted to achieve those orange-warm eye makeup so that is why I added a light brown eyeshadow on it.

Did I mention I wanted to create a warm-orange look? Yes, so the next step was to add a bit of black eyeshadow on my crease. And blend it again using a fluffy brush to avoid any harshline, and make it look smoother.
Never leave your lower lashline alone! I put the same colours that I used before to my lower lashline. Refer to the pictures below:

And girls, don't forget your lips as well. It need some attention too! If you have any orange lipstick, or even a red with orange undertone lipstick, go ahead. Just rock it! But since I don't own any bright orange lipstick, instead I applied some orange eyeshadow on my lips (I did apply a white eyeshadow base on it first, in order to make the orange colour to pop out more), then I applied an orange lip pigment on my lips using a lip brush.
