Contouring Make-over

posted by April 14, 2013 1 Comment

I dragged my friend Jehan for another make-over. This time round I wanted to go for a smokier look with thicker lashes and I kept her skin dewy and moist, with a soft peach tone on her lips.contouring make-over

I find it more practical to start with her eye-make-up first. It’s easier to clean up all the eye shadow specks that fall underneath, particularly when you’re using darker colours on the eye lid.

For a full listing of the Products used on Jehan:-


ILLAMASQUA Matt Primer only on the T-Zone.

Garnier BB cream was patted on the face all over.

Kiehl’s Lip Balm # 1 rubbed onto the lips.


L’OREAL True Match Super-Blendable Concealer in N4-5 was spread all over the eye lids first with #252 Concealer Brush from M.A.C.

Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent was dusted on the eyelids  with Sigma F35 Tapered Brush.

Chanel Cream Pot Eyeshadow in Illusoire was applied all over the eyelids with MUFE Eyeshadow Brush in 12S.

All eyeshadows used are from the SLEEK Ultra Mattes V2 Palette Sleek Palette in Ultra Mattes V2 Palette

NYX Black Liquid Eyeliner was used just on the lash line.

2 sets of Ardell Lashes were used: I first applied the Ardell 120 Demi Lashes. Once that set dry, I applied the Gisele Runway Eyelashes from Ardell, on top, to give Jehan’s eyes a stronger more powerful eye makeup look.

I reapplied the liquid eyeliner from NYX on top of the eyelashes.

Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara from Lancome was used to coat the lashes together.

Eyebrows were filled and defined by MUFE AquaBrow in #30 Dark Brown with Inglot 31T Flat Angle Brush and then brushed with Sephora Brow & Comb Brush.


For Concealer underneath the eyes; Light Peach Corrector from Bobbi Brown was softly dabbed by my ring finger, and then I applied the MAC ProlongWear Concealer in NW30-NW35 (I mixed the 2 shades) and blended them in with a Mikyajy Concealer Brush.

L’oreal True Match Super-Blendable  Concealer in Medium/Deep Cool C6 was used to contour the face – sides of the nose, top of the forehead, cheekbones and on the chin.

L’oreal True Match Super-Blendable  Concealer in Fair/Light Cool C2 on the highlights of the face : top and side of the lips, middle of the forehead, middle of the nose, top and underneath of the cheekbones.

Smashbox Studio Skin 15HR Wear Foundation Warm Medium Beige 3.3 buffed with the Real Techniques Stipling Brush.

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer in #2 with a Real Techniques Blush Brush.

MUFE HD Blush in #7 dabbed on by my fingers and then gently buffed with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush.

Laura Mercier’s Translucent Powder was gently brushed onto the T-Zone only, as I wanted to still keep the rest of her skin creamy and dewy.


OCC Lip Tar in Hush was applied only on the centre of the lips and then brushed with NYX transparent lip gloss.
