Most people have probabaly heard of Nicole Scherzinger. If you haven't, she was the lead singer of the pop girl group "The Pussycat Dolls." Then she I think tried to have a solo career and last I knew she was on "Dancing With the Stars." In case you can't tell, I don't pay that much attention haha. All I know is that she's absolutely stunning and when I stumbled across this picture of her:
I knew that I wanted to do a look like the one she has on in this picture. So I'm going to show you (kinda step by step) what I did to try to recreate (somewhat haha) this look!
Next I put tape near my bottom lashline and out toward my temples because you can definitely tell that she had tape on her face
Then I used a black base (NYX's jumbo eye pencil in "Black Bean") and applied it with my finger on my lid to just above my crease and under my eye (under my eye I used a brush)
Next I added a little bit of MAC's "Blanc Type" eyeshadow along the line where I stopped with the black base, I did this because I find that it makes it easier to blend out darker colors if you have a layer of skintone shadow to blend on top of
Now I took some navy blue from my 88 matte/shimmer palette (I'll have all of the colors I used marked on the palette below) and another greenish blue color and blended them on top of the black base (I wanted it to get slightly lighter as you go up towards my brow):
Next I mixed a bunch of the yellowish/orangeish/brownish colors together and blended them above and into the blue
Then I filled in my brows because I don't like adding a highlight until my brows are filled in haha
Next I added a highlight color (I used NYX ultra pearl mania in "Nude" because it's a beautiful very shimmery golden color)
Now I added some eyeliner on my top lashes and on my waterline. I used Bobbi Brown's gel eyeliner in "Black" which I love because it stays on my waterline wonderfully!
Then I removed the tape
Then I used some face powder to help soften the line that was left behind because it was a little too drastic haha. And I just kept blending the colors together and adding more layers of the same colors I had already used until I was happy with the result. And here is my completed eye:
Well this was my first try at explaining step by step how I created a look. You'll have to let me know if it was informative or not haha and what I could do to improve if it wasn't very helpful. Any suggestions at all are more than welcome!!! Thank you so so so much for taking time out of your day to check this out and I hope you enjoyed it! I hope you have a beautiful, wonderful day!!!
