"Taste of Antarctica" Jessica Stam Inspired Inverted Crease Makeup Tutorial
Today, I feel like doing a blog post on inspired makeup tutorials. So I will be doing another inspired makeup look by Jessica Stam. The inspired picture is the picture you see above. I just love how it look very sophisticated, exotic and absolutely sexy. It totally remind me of fall and winter, which is here for me and winter is just right around the corner. Now keep in mind, that this makeup is INSPIRED so it will not 100% look like the makeup she had on. And also you can use whatever makeup or products you like or have around the house, it does not have to be what I use. It is just what I have and what I would use. I am using all Benefit Cosmetics products that you can find that Sephora, Ulta or online.
1.) For a base, take Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/ Liner in Tattle Tale and just apply a light even coat of that all over your eyes. Don't forget the inner corner and lower lash line.
2.) Take any eyeshadow shader brush with Benefit Velvet Eyeshadow in Buckle Bunny and mix it with Benefit darkest brown eyeshadow color from the Big Beautiful Eyes palette and apply it all over your lid to a little big pass your crease. Focusing it mostly in the crease and make the eyeshadow go a little higher as you go inner toward the inner corner. Also take it down to your lower lash line.
3.) Now take a fluffy blending brush and blend any harsh line.
4.) With a flat eyeshadow brush with Benefit Velvet Eyeshadow in Bikini Line and just pop that as a highlight in the inner corner and brow bone.
5.) For liners, take Benefit BADgal liner waterproof in Black and line your upper and lower waterline with it.
6.) The last steps for the eyes are to just curl your lashes and apply 2 coats of the Benefit they're real! mascara to you upper and lower lashes.
1.) It looks like she didn't have any blush on. But if you do want to wear a blush. A light baby pink would go great with this look, like the Benefit dandelion box powder blush.
1.) For the lips, they're really pale nudish peachy color if you can't tell. So what I would recommend doing first is to exfoliate and moisturize your lips. Than, take a concealer and apply that all over your lips. Than take the Benefit full-finish lipstick in fame game and that is it. Don't top it off with a gloss or anything shiny, glossy or shimmery. They look really matte.
