Give Yourself Wings
We are very pleased to present a tutorial from the make-up queen and inspirational female entrepreneur, Doe Deere (with her own make-up company Lime Crime)! This wonderful make-up scheme was inspired by Does' favorite Butterfly, The Blue Morpho.
Eyes: Lime Crime magic dust in Duchess, Nymph, Primadonna, Lime Criminal
Lips: Lime Crime opaque lipstick in Centerfuchsia, clear gloss
Face: Foundation, setting powder, rosy blush
Prep the lids with eyeshadow primer (I use Urban Decay Primer Potion, $16 at Sephora). With a short-bristled brush, pack Primadonna on the center of the lid, then Duchess on outer corners, bringing it into the crease. Blend the pink and the blue together with a brush, going in circular motion. Apply Lime Criminal on lower lid as close to the lashes as possible. Blend into Duchess on outer corner. Pick up a clean brush and brush Nymph as highlight onto the brow bone and a touch on the inner corner of the eye. Blend into the other colors well.
Moisturize skin. Apply foundation all over and set with loose powder. Brush on some rosy color onto the cheeks.
Define lip shape with a dark fuchsia pencil (try MAC in Magenta).
Tip: fill in lips with a lip pencil prior to applying color if you want extra-staying power.
Apply Centrifuchsia lipstick directly from the tube. Press lips together; blot; re-apply. Dab a glob of clear lip gloss on the center of the mouth. Voila!
