Guest Contributor: Make Up For Ever Winter Look

A few days ago, I posted Make Up For Ever’s gorgeous winter look, and I asked if anyone wanted to take a stab at recreating it.

Victoria of The Colours rose to the challenge. Victoria is NC30-35, olive-toned Asian, with black hair and black eyes. I think her version is incredibly beautiful, and much more everyday-wearable than the original.
Here’s her breakdown:

The model was very glowy, so I used MAC Strobe Cream, Neutrogena Healthy Skin (60, Natural Beige), and highlighted with the best highlighter ever, Dior Amber Diamond. Cheeks were peachy and natural; I used ELF’s Peachykeen.

The eyes had a really pretty peachy-gold blended into a blackened olive green, with a medium brown in the crease. I used Michael Todd’s Long Wear Creme Shadow in Vacation Bronze all over the lid, plus MUFE #306 Beige Diamond all the way up to the brow. For the outer-v I used Shiro Cosmetic’s Sudowoodo, mixed with MUFE #307 to darken, especially at the lashline. In the crease I used Urban Decay’s Buck.

I intentionally skipped the intense liner on the bottom lashline — I don’t think it suits my eyeshape. Instead, I lined my lower lashline with Stila Smudgestick in Moray, and patted on a white shadow (MUFE #07) on the inner corner, mostly along the bottom lashline.

Surprisingly, for all my love of peach lips, I had nothing in my collection that resembled the lip in the picture, so I had to improvise. The lipstick was a combination of Revlon Soft Nude and MAC Mocha (more of the latter than the former), lined gently with Rimmel’s Addiction. I finished with Revlon Colorburst Sunset Peach Lipgloss.
