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.

First to respond was clebirun of Beyond the Pale and Freckled, and she did a killer job — spot-on with that lower eyeliner.
Beyond the Pale and Freckled
Here’s her breakdown:

I didn’t have any of the products used in the look as described by MUFE so I went with my own.

I used the shimmery peach in Too Faced Romantic Eye palette for the overall lid, MAC Sumptuous Olive and Wet ‘n’ Wild Comfort Zone (the green shade) on the outer part of the lid, and Urban Decay Buck for the matte brown in the crease.

I used Tarte emphasEYES gel liner on the top, and tried just about every black pencil and cream/gel liner I own to create the thin lower liner. To get the shape of the lower eyeliner, I used Q-tips with Neutrogena’s lotion makeup remover to shave down the line, until it was as thin and smooth but still completely opaque. I used my Wet ‘n’ Wild liner in White for the waterline.

I applied Urban Decay Shakedown fairly heavily through the brows for contrast.  I finished the eyes with CoverGirl LashBlast Volume and some fake lashes (though I don’t think you can really see them in this photo).

I’m wearing MUFE Face & Body in #38 (lightest shade, my favorite base currently), Physicians Formula Happy Boosters translucent powder for highlight on the bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow, forehead, and cheeks/temple. I packed on quite a bit of concealer under the eyes, Laura Mercier Undercover pot in the lightest shade. I also used CARGO blu_ray Pressed Powder in #10 to finish my skin and take down any excess shine — next to the MUFE, it’s my second favorite base!

I used Revlon ColorBurst (lipstick) in Rosy Nude for the cheeks, blended on very easily with my Sonia Kashuk flat-topped ultra-soft synthetic blush brush. Lips were Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in Romantic Rose.
