You know how you always see those random lipstick colors that look striking in their packaging but you’d never even think of trying?
That’s how I felt about this OCC shade called Sebastian. I saw it in Urban Outfitters and tipsily bought it, because two champagne flutes and a random spring day in New York City.
It’s actually an awkward color on my complexion, but that’s kind of what I like about it. A mixture of plum, taupe and grey, I figured it’d be easiest to make this color look decent by adding a sparkly rich burgundy to my eyes. Randomly, I dabbed orange blush on the apples of my cheeks, just for fun, and it worked.
This is what I do in my spare time, don’t judge me.
If you like this look, below are my steps to help you achieve it, too.
First, I applied my favorite primer: Make Up For Ever High Definition (seems to be discontinued).
Then, in a triangular shape under my eyes, I applied the NARS Creamy Concealer (with the tip of the arrow touching the tip of my cheekbones). I baked my concealer for about 10 minutes.
While my concealer was baking, I applied the NYX Eye Shadow Base in Skin Tone to my eyes to hold my shadow and glitter in place.
From there, I applied a red cream shadow (Metallishadow Crème and Powder by The Estee Edit) and added the glitter sparingly, which added the Rose Gold effect.
Then, I applied my foundation: Cover FX Natural Finish Oil Free in N110 and blended the hell out of my concealer and my foundation for a flawless finish.
Finally, I brushed MAC’s Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting powder on my nose, temple and chin to keep my oily skin under control.
