Corinthian Makeup Tutorial

Hello, all my lovely readers! Today as you can tell by the title of this blog post, I will be doing another makeup tutorial. It is a very wearable makeup look, but it still somehow has that slight tint of color which doesn't make it your typical everyday makeup look. You can definitely wear this look going out, taking pictures etc because it will be something different, but is still wearable for any occassion as far as I can think of. Lets get into it, shall we?


1.) You know the drill, as always start off by applying a base or a primer to your eyes. I currently really really like the Palladio Herbal Eye Shadow Primer. It is really comparable to the Urban Decay Primer Potion and the Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

2.) Next, take a flat stiff eyeshadow shader brush and pack on a barely pinked gold shimmery eyeshadow color. I am using the MAC Single Eyeshadow in "Gleam" from their permanent line. But just any eyeshadow like this will do it justice.

3.) Take any crease brush with Le Metier de Beaute Eye Shadow in Corinthian and just apply that directly into my crease. You should stop about half way in.

4.) Take a fluffy blending brush with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour Shadow in Cafe au Lait and just dust that above the Corinthian eyeshadow as a transitional blending color.

5.) With the same fluffly blending brush we just used wipe it off really well and blend the crease color with the transitional color nicely.

6.) Go back with the first flat stiff shader brush we used take the same Gleam eyeshadow and just reapply it. Since, with all the blending and other colors we apply afterward can reduce its appearance.

7.) Than, take a clean highlighting brush take the Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Ivory and apply that onto the brow bone or just any matte creamy white color will work.

8.) With the same highlighting brush take the "Morphine" eyeshadow from the Kat Von D True Romance Palette in Angeles and just apply that right into the inner corner. It basically is just a cream irridescent white.

9.) For the liners, we are going to just line our upper waterline or you can call it the tideline with a dark purple color to compliments the purple in the Corinthian eyeshadow. I will using the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Rockstar for now.

10.) Curl your lashese and appyl your favorite mascara to your upper and lower lashes. My favorite currently at the moment is the Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara in Black.


1.) Make sure that you really highlight your cheekbones, because we really want that nice glow to your skin. My favorite highlighter at the moment is the Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in #2.

2.) For blush, I want a nice cool tone pink color so I will using the Clarins Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour in Lilac Pink.


1.) Make sure your lips are well moisturize, I moisturized it with one of the Jack Black lip balm.

2.) Apply a pink lipstick mine is YSL Rouge Volupte Radiant Lipstick in Fetish Pink.

3.) Than, for gloss apply a warm tone gloss I will be using the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipgloss in Broadway Bronze.

That is it for the Corinthian Makeup Tutorial! Hope you all liked it!
