THE GUCCI GIRL

MY VERSION OF THE GUCCI MAKE UP FOR TOM FORD'S LAST COLLECTION.

THE SMUDGIER THE BETTER.

WIIII!! I CAN TIE MY HAIR ALREADY! NOT! HAHAHA

PART YOUR HAIR ON THE SIDE AND MAKE A CHIGNON.

CLEAR LIPS

USE YOUR CONCEALER TO DI-PIGMENT YOUR LIPS. LINE WITH MAC OAK LIP PENCIL AND APPLU BOBBI BROWN CLEAR GLOSS WITH A LIP BRUSH.

SKIP THE POWDER

WITH A MAC 109 BRUSH APPLY MAC BLUSHCREME IN UNCOMMON

SNEAK PEAK

CURL YOUR LASHES AND APPLY A FIRST COAT OF MASCARA. SEPARATE THEM AND APPLY THE SECOND COAT ON THE UPPER AND LOWER LASHES.



LINE YOUR UPPER AND LOWER WATER LINE WITH A KAJAL PENCIL AND SMUDGE IT WITH A MAC 219 BRUSH



WITH AN INGLOT FLAT SHADER BRUSH APPLY A SHIMMERY ORANGE SHADE ON THE BROW BONE.


ENSURE THAT THERE IS NO DEMARCATION BETWEEN THE ORANGE AND GOLD SHADE. IF THERE IS GO BACK AND USE YOUR MAC 217 BRUSH TO BLEND FURTHER.


WITH A MAC 217 BRUSH, APPLY A GOLD SHIMMERY SHADE ON THE CREASE.

USING THE SAME MAC 239 BRUSH APPLY A SLIGHTLY DARKER TAUPE ON THE OUTER V AND BLEND.

WITH A KAJAL PENCIL LINE YOUR UPPER AND LOWER WATER LINE.

WITH A MAC 219 BRUSH SMUDGE THE KAJAL PENCIL.

WITH A MAC 239 BRUSH APPLY A SHIMMERY TAUPE SHADE ON YOUR LID

IAM USING COASTAL SCENTS 88 SHIMMER PALETTE.

WITH AN INGLOT 13 P BRUSH APPLY MAC PIGMENTS IN BLONDE'S GOLD ON THE INNER LID.

AFTER BLENDING WITH THE MAC 226.

WITH MAC SPARE CHANGE, UNBLENDED.

APPLY MAC SPARE CHANGE ALL OVER THE LID AND BLEND WITH A MAC 226 BRUSH

SET THE BASE FOR THE EYE SHADOW. I USED BOURJOIS LIQUID EYESHADOW IN GOLD IN THE INNER CORNERS WITH A SMALL MUFE BRUSH.

USING YOUR RING FINGER APPLY MAC PAINT POT IN INDIAN WOOD ON THE REMAINING HALF OF YOUR EYE.

WITH A MAC 219 BRUSH APPLY THE PAINT POT ON THE LOWER LASH LINE AS WELL.


I USED A SLIGHTLY LIGHTER PENCIL FOR MY EYEBROWS.

BROWZINGS IN LIGHT FROM BENEFIT.

SET YOUR BROWS

I WANTED THE SKIN TO MAINTAIN ITS LUMINOUSITY, THUS SANS POWDER.

FOR THE BASE: MAC SELECT SPF FOUNDATION WITH A MAC 190 BRUSH, SABAYA SKIN GLOW WITHA A PRESTIGE BRUSH AND MAC STUDIO SCULPT CONCEALER WITH A MAC 192.

NOTICE THAT THERE IS NO POWDER. I WENT POWDER FREE WITH THIS LOOK.

THE INSPIRATION

Just what exactly is a Gucci Girl? She is strong, uninhibited (puple n*p*l"s) during the shows, she is intelligent, not exactly gorgeous, more like oozing with sex appeal. (I think there is a difference) She has a penetrating gaze and her strides are long and sure. She wears the clothes and not the other way around.


The idea of this look is to make it look like you partied all night and slept with your make up on (dont recommend this though. :)) The smudgier, the better.
