I did a pole 2 weeks ago to check what looks you wanted me to do first and this is the next one in the line. It’s the Megan Fox December 2009 Cosmopolitan cover look. I have two examples that show the eye perfectly but they also show that the picture has a filter over it because the original eye had a purple tint to it. I did a mixture of the two pictures.
Here are my examples:
And here is the preview of my final eye:
I started with something I recently bought on Strawberrynet.com. It’s the SK-II travel set that they have and I used the following products on my face to make sure my skin was well moisturized.
- SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser (a soft face wash)
- SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (a watery substance that feels like it’s moisture to not only your top layers of skin but underneath as well)
- SK-II Whitening Source Dermdefinition (on a few dark spots that are starting to appear again now that the sun is coming back)
- SK-II Facial Lift Emulsion (a moisturizer that I let sink in for a little while)
- SK-II Signs Treatment Totality (feels AMAZING!!)
On my eyes I used Clinique Moisture Surge for eyes.
On my well moisturized face I used the Smashbox – Photofinish primer with Dermaxyl, this is also an antiaging primer and I was feeling tired having been sick this week so I needed a little boost to look more like Megan .
Over this I used a new product I got, and that’s the L’Oreal Matte Morphose Souffle Foundation in 180 – Rosy Sand. This looks like it’s way too dark for me in the container, but on my skin (buffed in with the Sephora Mineral powder brush) it looks perfect.
The brush I used is no longer sold, but looks like this:
I then used my normal under eye routine, namely taking away the darkness with Laura Mercier – Undercover Pot in no 3 and then lightening with MUFE lift concealer in no. 1 (on the inner part of the eye only to add some extra light in the inner corners).
I set the concealer under my eyes with Laura Mercier – Lanslucent Loose Setting Powder but didn’t use any powder on the rest of my face because it’s supposed to be matte. (It was, for a short while )
Your eyebrows frame your face, and when doing your face you should really try and do your eyebrows before applying your eye makeup simply because they change the eye so much if you change your brow. For this Megan Fox look I saw that our brows are pretty similar, but she does have some powder on the top of the arch, so I did that with Urban Decay’s – Brow Box in Brown Sugar. Personally I think my brows don’t need filling, but for this look I kinda liked it, it finished the eye. If you have blonde brows, you can alter the shape of your brows more easily. For dark brows, try to only use the colour where you want the extra definition, so in this case, on the bottom side of the start of the brow and on the top of the arch. Blend this well with a spooley.
I started my eyes with a base of Urban Decay – Eye Shadow Primer Potion. On the inner corners I used two thin layers of Sephora – Colorful Mat Mono Eyeshadow in white, and then a quick wash over the entire eye to help with the blending later on. This means you get more staying power and more definition.
On the crease I used my Illamasqua – blending brush and MAC – Cork. This means a warmer crease and some definition on the inner crease because this eye is very much colour only on the outer corner.
At this point I actually stopped the makeup for a while, I went to get some new tires for the car and then got back to the look 3 hours later. Why did I still go on with the look? Because at this point you have a great natural eye and it’s still buildable to a great evening eye without any cleanup or touchups.
When I came back I took MAC – Brun and I applied this with a Sephora – Dome shaped brush. (As you can see the lighting has changed because at this point the sun was behind huge rainclouds.
As you can see I went a little highter at the outer corner and I didn’t place any colour on the inner corner. I blended the colour with a MAC 217.
With a MAC pencil brush I applied carbon on the lashline and blended this into the Brun with a 217 brush again.
As you can see, none of the Brun or Carbon is above the crease, only on the outer corner I went higher then the crease.
The next step was adding a LITTLE of colour to the eye, I did this with the Urban Decay – Alice in Wonderland Palette colours Ecstacy and Mushroom.I first applied mushroom with a big fluffy brush for a little velvety finish and then a wash of Ecstacy for a hint of purple.
I took thes
e pictures in natural light to show you the colour, but because the light is fading the end pictures are in yellow lamplight. I think that’s also why Megan’s eyemakeup looks like it’s got different colours when it is in fact the same makeup in both pictures.
Next up I curled my lashes and then I applied Urban Decay – Eyelash Primer Potion followed by Dior – Diorshow Iconic Mascara in black.
I think Megan is wearing individual lashes, but I was out of those so I took MAC – 33 lashes. They are on a clear strip and are bundles of individual lashes on that strip. They have more length in the middle of the lash which is what I found Megan to have on the picture as well. So, using DUO lashglue in white (that turns invisible when dry), I applied these lashes as close to my lashline as possible. I didn’t want to line my eye because I wanted the look to be as much like Megan’s as possible. This means you can see the lashband on close ups, but no one in real life is going to ask me to close my eyes and then come that close to me to see it. So you can see it on the pictures, but in real life you almost can’t see the lashband.
With the glue drying, I went on the place some Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Zero on my waterline (only on the outer two-third of the waterline).
Even though the eye looks a lot darker, for some reason with this lighting it kept looking pretty natural, so I took these pictures with my webcam:
And these with my iPhone to show you the eye in different lighting with different camera’s:
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you try it out on yourself, show me how it went, I’m pretty curious to see if my instructions are helpfull.
Have a great Sunday!
