30L1P: Day 13

Sometimes you just need a ba-bam look to go with dirty hair and a braid, you feel me?

This looks complicated, but I promise it isn’t. Take your time really blending everything and add just a bit at a time and you’ll be fine.

1- add this all over the lid and into the crease

2- deepen up the crease and blend up into color 1

3- add this color into the crease and blend down on to the lid.

4- add this purple on the inner and outer corners, leaving the center of the lid bare. Keep piling this color on until you get it as dark as you want it.

5- using your finger, tap this on to the center of the lid and then use a clean brush to blend the line between the purple and the gold

4- add some of the purple on the lower lash if you want a bit more smokey look!

FAQs– I’ve received a few questions and I’ll just keep adding in answers here. Don’t hesitate to ask. There’s no such thing as a dumb question!

Do I have to use the Jaclyn Hill palette? No way! You can find similar colors in other palettes. If you need some cheaper options, let me know I’ll send you some recommendations based on the colors you like to wear.

Do you put the numbers on in the order listed? I do! If there’s more than one number listed, it means I’m mixing them together. One of my favorite things to make my own colors. Play around if you don’t like a certain color- you may find you love it with another color mixed in!

Do I have to do it in the same order? No! There’s no right or wrong way to do makeup. I do my crease first because I don’t have a defined crease when my eyes are open. I have hooded eyes so my crease and lid tend to disappear when my eyes are open. You likely have a different eye shape. Play around and find out what works for you!

This article is a great one about eye shapes and the best eyeshadow for your shape.

If I follow your tutorial exactly, will it look the same on me? Nope. Sorry! Just like painters can never duplicate another painter *exactly* neither can makeup artists. We each hold our brushes differently and use different pressure and different amounts of product and..: well you get it. Make the look your own! I’m hoping to provide inspiration and ideas.

What lighting is best for selfies? Haha this one isn’t exactly what was asked, but it’s close. I find that the best light is a partly cloudy day at about 11 am or 2 pm near a window that isn’t directly in the sun. Other than that, I have no idea and I’m learning with ya ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
