Hello my lovelies, so it has been a while how are you all? so can i start by saying James SLAYS he is literally my aesthetic he is stunning. I hate it when they say that boys cant wear makeup or do makeup because they can, my two makeup idols are Manny MUA and James Charles because i mean look at them! If you haven’t by the way look them up you will fall in love!
I tried to re-create this gorgeous instagram look by James but in a more natural way, i mean i wouldn’t wear the eyeshadow but it is more for all my makeup lovers with balls this is for you! My makeup skills are no where near his but i tried. Ahh ok, here we go.
So in the look the eyes are very elongated and bold contrasting with his blue eyes, i have boring hazel eyes so the red didnt seem as bright as his. I started with the naked weightless concealer on my lid which i set with a translucent powder. The actually eyeshadow is very simple which was very good! in the crease i started with my bronzer then mixed in shade 157 (shimmery red) from Inglot, i also put this in my crease. Make sure you blend this outwards just past the edge of the brows this gives it that cat eye effect, the key with this look is to blend until your wrist hurts! Next i took Bitten by Makeup Geek and placed that in the outer part of the eyeshadow flick.. (dont know what to call it sorry) and the inner crease lightly joining it up as if it was a halo eye, aswell as this i smoked it under my eye connecting to the eyeshadow flick. On the centre of the lid close to the lash line i placed the shade 55 from inglot which is a golden bronze. In the water line and tight line i put my Lancome black pencil eye liner, then smoked it along my top lash line. Finish the eyeshadow look with a generous coating of mascara and a highlight in the inner corner to open up the eyes. In James’ look he is wearing falsies but i cant do them to save my life so im going to pretend i skipped them to make it more natural.
Do your face makeup like normal but go to town on the contour and highligt, litterally guys it didnt pick up on the camera but i awas blinding. Oh also i wass watching this youtube video where they said a big makeup mistake was to blind people with highlight and classified it as the worse trend 2016!! I KNOW i was like dying! Anyways freckles is one of the things James is known for and he rocks them! His are very bold and i sadly wasn’t brave enough for that so i died them down abit to make it more wearable but like i said if you’ve got balls rock heavy ones! To do this i took my anastasia dip brow in dark brown on a tiny morphe brush and dotted them all around my face. If you think they’re to dark lightly patting them makes them fade slightly.
Next i filled my brows in normally however using darker brow powder over my dip brow as his brows are very dark.
For lips i picked two options a more casual one but still very James, then a diy one similar to the one in the inspo picture.
So this is the classic red lip with a twist i took the red shimmery eyeshadow and placed it in the centre of my lips with some gold to give it a metallic finish but keeping it classic and autumnal.
The lip james was wearing was a matte grey brown. I dont have this colour (if you have one similar use that) so i decide to diy it! for this i took a matte browny grey eyeshadow and pressed that onto my lips over the top of a nude lipstick, and then cleaned it up with my foundation.
Thankyou so much for reading and getting me to 950 followers that is literally ridiculous, i love you all so much have a lovely week!
Love abi xx
