LOTD: My little sisters Masquerade party

Hey you guys, my sister had a masquerade party and since i always do her makeup for parties, i decided to document the general process of this one! I did this look like a month ago but i never had time to upload it properly, and since im stressed out with homework i thought that i might aswell destress, take a break :P whatever.

here are the pics!


I rolled her hair (almost dried hair) in curling rollers hours in advance, heated it with a hair dryer on the hottest setting with the least force, so it doesnt go everywhere and frizz, then set it with hair spray.

Hours later i then proceeded to do her foundation, concealer, eyebrows, and NYX Jumbo Eye pencil in Milk as an eyeshadow base, smudging out all over the whole eye area.

Pat an aluminium silver onto the lower lid, i used the one from my 120 palette...its the best silver ive ever tried/owned! So buttery and refined, i LOVE IT! Oh and a white or white silver in the inner corners.

wing out the eyeshadow until it just connects with the brow with a darker silver. Repeat for other eye.

Shade a metalic dark blue into the crease and blend upwards and out with a lighter metalic blue shade. Highlight under the brow with a champagne or white gold shadow.

Add liquid eyeliner and draw the whole length of the eyeshadow 'wing' until it connects to the brow bone. Add false lashes! dont forget bottom ones too for a dramatic masquerade look :)

Add gems to the eyebrows for a more themed look, apply a baby pink lipstick and gloss
Take out rollers, dont be shocked by the crazyness of the curls!, just brush them out with your fingers and run a shine serum or curling balm through them, flip your head/hair around abit until it looks natural and falls into place :)


Hope you liked them!! :)

    Second, the NYX lippie seems to suit you! I might look into it but in a shade that complements my color.
