Look: Beyonce's Countdown Music Video Inspired Makeup

Saturday, October 29, 2011

I am usually hesitant in stepping out of my comfort zone. When it comes to makeup, I am more comfortable wearing neutrals and dark smokey eyes. I am not into cut crease and colorful eye makeup that much but I really do appreciate it. But lately, I got into thinking why should I be hesitant if I know I can stand proud wearing a very bold makeup? Basically, that was the reason why I did this Beyonce's Countdown Music Video Inspired Makeup Look. I actually wore this look out to run some errands and as expected I received those what-is-wrong-with-you stares. I was like in the, "Stare all you want! Do you want me to do this look on you?" attitude so I didn't mind them at all. 
Fake fringes = FAIL!
Let's get started!

I filmed this look but hated it, so it went to the trash bin. You'll definitely notice that I made the look a bit wearable. I toned down all the components of the look, from the cut crease to the liner!

1.  Apply foundation and conceal imperfections. -- Since I was after the Beyonce look, I set my foundation with a dark powder.
2. Lightly redefine eyebrows. -- Notice how I just shaded my natural eyebrows?
3. Apply eyeshadow primer and blend. -- Primers will make the eyeshadow appear more vibrant.

4. Draw in your crease and the shape of the eye makeup with a white eyeliner .

5. Fill in the shape with the same white eyeliner. -- A white base will intensify the color of the eyeshadow.

6. Pat on a yellow gold eyeshadow all over the white base. -- Stay inside the shape!

7. With a smaller brush, put eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eyes and create a little flick on the outer part.

8. Follow the shape of the crease with a dark brown eyeshadow. Blend lightly.

9. With a lighter brown eyeshadow, fade the crease color away. -- This will also help in making a smooth transition from the highlight down to the crease color.

10. Draw the wing of the eyeliner using a black eyeshadow. -- It will be easier to erase this way in case you mess up.

11. Trace it over with a black gel liner. -- Line the lower lash line too, going about 2/3 of the way in.
12. Create a second wing on top of the first wing.

13. Line the waterline with a white eyeliner and highlight the browbones.

14. Curl lashes, apply mascara and put on false eyelashes (optional!)

15. Apply a bronzer all over the cheeks and a pink lipgloss on the lips. 


And you're done! 

Go ahead and be Beyonce for a day! :) This look is perfect for Halloween parties in case you want don't want to look scary and terrifying. Just wear that big hat and you're good to go!
