    Maybelline Coverstick in Light Beige
    Revlon Pinch Me in Cheeky Cherry (liquid blush)
    Wet N' Wild Bronzer (contour)
    Nichido loose powder in So Natural
    MAC New Vegas MSF (highlight)

    Chapstick in Strawberry

    1. Start with a clean moisturized face:

    2. Apply concealer and blend with a concealer/foundation brush

    3. Next, apply liquid blush then blend with finger (dabbing motions)

    i apply blush before foundation because it's liquid

    4. Then, buff on mineral foundation

    5. Next, the eyes: apply MAC Pharaoh paintpot on entire lid as base

    6. Then apply 1st color *which is the first pot of the stack* on the inner corners (1/3rd of the lid)

    7. Apply 2nd color *2nd pot* on the middle (2/3rd), leaving enough space for the next color

    8. Apply 3rd color *3rd pot* on the outer v

    9. Using a 217 brush or any crease brush, i picked up black tied and applied it on my outer v blending it towards the crease..

    Then you'll have this:

    10. Line then apply mascara.

    Then i'm DONE!..with the

    11.Contour face

    i'll be posting swatches of the Charlotte Russe Minerals, so keep on checking back.. Thanks!



    Very pretty! You make that pharaoh look very wearable. I thought it was a bit over the top, but you are making me think twice about it. Good job on the picture tut. I haven't attempted one of those yet but I will once I get the new camera.
