Clinique Moisturizing Lotion

Tarte BB Tinted Moisturizer in light

L’Oreal True Match Foundation in W3

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

Ben Nye Setting Powder in Cameo

Face:

To achieve the dirty and contoured looked I used the darkest shade subconscious in the Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette. I used this shade to contour my cheeks and brought the product up towards my ears and around to my forehead (be generous as most fortune tellers did not bath often;)) I also extended the product down my neck and onto my collar bone. You can use this shade to contour your neck and collar bone for a deeper/sucken in look!

Next I added a gray and dark purple eyeshadow (both from the Morphe Brushes Palettes 350 and 35T to the contour onto of the kat von d subconscious colour. It gave it a better dirt colour and these are the shades I also used on my eyes. Lastly I added the Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Face Palette (Discontinued) highlight in the shade Champagne Pop to add some glow over my cheeks and just below my brows.

 

Makeup Tools Used:

Real Techniques Beauty Sponge (2x $14CA)

Morphe E2 Powder Brush ($19.99US)

Morphe E4 Blush Brush ($13.99US)

Morphe E61 Pointed Highlight Brush ($7.99US)

Eyes:

I started by applying my brows as I usually do using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Ebony. However I made sure my brows were extra dark and added some bushyness to the ends as I am sure a fortune teller would not have well manicured brows!!

Next I did my eyes.  I used the Mac Eyelash Curler to curl my eyelashes and the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer in Minor Sin to prime before applying any shadow.

For a base eyeshadow I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance Palette in the shade Tempera. As mentioned above I used the darkest gray from the Morphe Brushes Palettes 350 and the dark purple eyeshadow from the Morphe Brushes Palettes 35T in the crease of my eye extending in towards and down both sides of my nose (be very generous with this application as well. On my lid I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance Palette in the shade Primavera. Lastly I added my wing liner using the Amaterasu Liquid Eyeliner in Black.

To add the veins on the under eye I started by applying Venetian Red from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance Palette. I extended this from under my eye up to my crease. I then used the Amaterasu Liquid Eyeliner in Black and drew very thin veins/lines from my lower lash line down toward my cheeks. Make them very in length and swiggly like veins would be. On top of the liquid liner I used a red (NYX 817 Hot Red) and burgundy lip liner (Mac Bespoken For) to give them a more realistic vein look and then added some more Venetian red to dull the lines.

Once that was completed I applied the Sephora Collection False Lashes and used Duo Eyelash Adhesive to apply them. I finished my lashes off my coating them with the L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof Mascara.

Makeup Tools Used For Eyes and Brows:

Morphe M200 Deluxe Crease ($4.99US)

Morphe M332 Fluffy Crease ($4.99US)

Morphe M433 Pro Firm Blending Fluff ($5.99)

Morphe M165 Brow Brush ($1.99 US)

Morphe Brush M224 ($2.99) with concealer to line under brows

Lips: 

For the lips I used the same burgundy liner as I used to make the veins under my eyes and then used Gerard Cosmetics liquid lipstick in Ruby Slipper. Before it dries I applied the same Primavera shadow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance Palette to the centre of my top and bottom lip and extended out toward the corner of my lips.

Accessories:

My earrings and necklace that I used on my head scarf are both from Party City and my scarf I had lying around and just tied it around my head. The wig I got awhile ago from Images and Shades Cosmetics in turquoise.

Hands:

I used Flash Tattoos as well as drew Tantra symbols on my fingers using the Amaterasu Liquid Eyeliner in Black  (just googled tantra symbols) followed by as many rings as I could fit!

 

L’Oreal Lumi Cushion Foundation

I have been hearing about this foundation all over the place and was quite curious about the “lumi” foundations that are all the rave right now!

Becca Cosmetics released their Aqua Luminous Foundation recently and it has had an overwhelmingly positive response  however the $54 price tag can be considered by most, quite expensive. I wanted to find a happy medium both in cost and quality so I set out to try this Lumi Cushion Foundation!

L’Oreal released their Lumi Cushion Foundation around the same time and I was able to find it at my local Walmart for $19 (it is also available at Shoppers Drug Mart for $24). It also comes in the liquid foundation form which I have yet to try! Initially I was hesitant about using the cushion and the applicator it comes with, this is the first cushion foundation I have used and it was a bit intimidating to try but I am so glad i did! My instincts were wrong about the cushion foundation but I still prefer to use my damp beauty blender to apply it!

The consistency of this foundation is beautiful, the glow is radiant and I love how it applies to the skin with ease. I bought it in the colour N2, it comes in three different tones of cool, neutral and warm with 8 different shades, talk about versatility! The other thing I love about this foundation is the buildability! This foundation can be applied as a light coating over the skin or you can continue to apply coats for a more full coverage finish! I have shown the stages below of the application, picture #1 is no makeup, picture #2 I have applied the Lumi Foundation and the last photo is my full makeup!

I would not recommend this foundation for anyone who has particularly oily skin as this foundation is intended to give you that glow and combining the two may appear greasy.

This will definitely be my go to foundation this summer and I can’t wait to buy it in a shade darker for my hopefully more tanned skin!!

Hope you guys enjoyed!!
