FOTD: Modern Twist on a Classic Makeup Look (Collaboration with Adjusting Beauty)


Hello, my dear beautiful followers. I'm so happy to share with you today's post, because it's a makeup collaboration post with one of the best and my favourite Slovenian blogger Petra from Adjusting Beauty. Since we both own Mac lipstick Lady Danger, we decided to create a makeup look with it. We thought a lot what we should do, but the first thing that came on our minds was a classic look. In the end we both decided for a classic look with a twist and end up doing the same technique, which is a cut crease. You know what they say, great minds think alike. :) 



Tutorial:
Step 1: As always I started with an eyeshadow base, which prevents eyeshadow from creasing and also makes sure that the eyeshadow will stay on your lids longer. 
Step 2: With a brown shade and a pointer brush I outlined the crease. 
Step 3: On brow bone, above  the line, I applied a darker brown matte shade.
Step 4: Next step was blending. Blend, blend, blend, until you don't get a nice soft edge. You can help yourself with very light brown eyeshadow. Also, if you don't have a harsh line in crease after blending, use a thin flat brush and a concealer to cover up everything that's under the crease line.
Step 5: I applied a golden metallic eyeshadow all over this lid and in inner corner of my eye. I also added a bit more dark brown to deepen the crease line.
Step 6: I used a dark shimmery brown eyeshadow on lower lash line. 
Step 7: Eyeliner is a must for me by looks like this.
Step 8: First I used a nude jumbo pencil on waterline and white eyeshadow under my brow as highlighter. Then I curled my lashes and applied mascara. 
Step 9: False lashes are an optional step. I applied them to achieve more dramatic look, but in the end didn't get many great photos to share them with you in this post.


Lady Danger is a bright orange-red lipstick with matte finish, and I have to say I was impressed how smooth it applies on lips. Despite the matte finish it doesn't dry my lips, which is amazing. As you will notice, this lipstick looks different on different people. On Petra it looks completely red, while on me it obviously has more orange undertone. On nails I'm wearing Essence Cherry Cherry Girl from Cherry Blossom Girl TE.
