Makeup for your next ballet competition with an edge!
b. Once set, apply a light brown powder under the cheekbones. This contours the cheeks, and then apply a blush to the cheeks and highlighting powder on the cheekbone. We have used Kryolan Glamour Glow in “Juicy Mood” for blush and “Pale Tan” for highlighting.
Step 2: Apply Kryolan Eye Primer over the entire eyelid. While the eye primer is still dewy, using a flat shadow brush, press the HD Living Colour Loose Pigment over the lid. In this image we have used the colour “Emerald”. Next, take an eyeshadow blending brush and blend the pigment up into the socket of the eye. Blend out the extra product on the lid, rather than adding more pigment.
Step 3: Using the same blending brush that was used in the previous step, use a cool dark brown shadow and apply to the outer corner of the eye. We have used Kryolan’s “Sudan”. Then blend that shadow up and into the socket of the eye also. You can add more of the brown to the outer corners and slightly blend inwards toward the middle of the lid. This creates the “smokey eye” effect.
Step 4: Using a bullet brush take a black shadow and apply to the outer corners on top of the brown shadow. We have used the shade “Deep Black”. This adds depth and intensifies the smokeyness of the eye shadow. Next add a thin line of the HD Cream Liner in “Ebony” on the lash line. Finally, buff out the deep brown shadow along the lower lash line. Apply full mascara to the top and lower lashes. To finish the look, apply a gloss to the lips and set the makeup with Kryolan’s Derma Colour Fixing Spray.
