Jessica Stam Dark Fall Inspired Makeup Tutorial
I am now getting back into doing my fall inspired makeup tutorial series. The last time I did one of these was September 21, which is like 3-4 weeks ago so a really long time ago. I am really sorry that I haven't done one, but now I am planning on having 2 makeup inspired tutorials 2 times a week. I got a few more inspired pictures that I really want to do. So hopefully, I get all of them up this month and before November starts.
This time this look is also inspired by Jessica Stam. I always find that she always have great makeup look. That is the reason why most of my past tutorials are inspired by her. I just love her makeup overall. The inspired picture is above, just in case you want to get a look of it. Also, this time I will be using a variety of different brands.
1.) Start off by priming your lids with your favorite eyeshadow primer. I am using the ELF Eyelid Primer. It is only $1-$2 at Target or any place that you can find sells ELF Cosmetics.
2.) Take any synthetic flat shader brush with Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Liner in Black Ink which is just a jet black liner, but we will be using it as a shadow base. Apply a light to medium coat of that all over the lid and try not to go any higher than that.
3.) Now with that same synthetic flat shader brush, flip it to the other side and take Make Up For Ever eyeshadow in #4 a matte black color and pad that all over your lids and go maybe about 1/3 of the way in.
4.) With any small eyeshadow brush take Pandora's Makeup Box Eyeshadow in Slate and just put that on the rest of the empty 1/3 of your lid. But make sure there are no harsh line between the black eyeshadow color and this Slate eyeshadow.
5.) Take a crease brush, that has no eyeshadow on it at all with Make Up For Ever eyeshadow in #29 a matte warm dark brown and just apply it into the crease and blending it up lightly kind of acting like a transitional color above the crease.
6.) For your waterline and tide line take Stila Smudgestick in Stingray and line it all the way into the inner corner. Line both the upper and lower waterline.
7.) With a small pencil brush go back to that Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in #4 and just line your lower lash line all the way into the inner corner with it. Make sure it connects with your outer corner and upper lash line.
8.) Take a highlighting brush and go in with Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in #15 a matte ivory beige and just highlight your brow bone with it.
9.) The last step for the eyeshadows is to just take Sephora brand eyeshadow in Aspen Summit #23 with a small eyeshadow brush and highlight your inner corner with that.
10.) Now the final step for the eyes are to just curl your lashes and apply a coat of the Maybelline Volum' Express Falsies Flared Waterproof Mascara in Very Black to your upper and lower lashes.
1.) For the cheeks Jessica has a very peachy cheeks on the apple of her cheeks and to her temples. So to achieve those cheeks, take a blush brush with L'Oreal True Match Blush in Innocent Flush and apply it heavily to the apple of your cheeks and blending it as you get higher to the temples.
1.) Jessica lips is a peachy pink color. So take Bare Escentuals Buxom Big & Healthy Full Color Lip Polish in Katie and apply that first to your lips than take another Buxom Lip Polish in Amber and just apply it over Katie lip polish.
That is it for Jessica Stam makeup.
