THE LIMA GLOW REVISITED

GLOW EVEN DURING THE COLD MONTHS.

THE LIPS: Go Pale and Glossy wiht INGLOT Soft Precision Lipliner in 67 topped with INGLOT gloss in 26.

Open Sesame!

THE FINISHING TOUCHES: Apply powder on where you get oily only. Take advantage of the weather and go dewy all the way. :)

THE CHEEKS: Apply MAC Cremeblush in Uncommon on the apples of the cheeks. I applied the INGLOT Illuminator on my cheek plane with a MUFE 5N brush and blended it with the cushion of my ring finger.

THE BROWS - Keep them light and in place. Sephora Brow Pencil in 01, Benefit Brow Zings in Light and Mikyajy Brow Set.

THE EYES: Gold Peepers :)

THE EYES: Curl your lashes and apply 2 coats of Maybelline Colossal Mascara on the upper and lower lashes.

THE EYES: Using MAC Teddy Kohl Pencil, lightly line the upper lash line. One trick I use to achieve a soft definition is to apply the liner as if you are putting some dots on the lash bed.

With a MAC 266 brush, apply the shimmer taupe on the lower lash line.


Using the same brush, apply the white shimmer shadow on your water line all the way to your tear ducts.

THE EYES: Again, with an INGLOT Flat shadow brush, apply the white shimmer shadow on the brow bone.

THE EYES: Blend with a MAC 217.

THE EYES: Contoured and unblended.

THE EYES - With an INGLOT 80HP Brush, apply the shimmery taupe shadow on the crease with a little more emphasis on the outer V for soft definition.

THE EYES: Gold Lids.

THE EYES - Using an INGLOT Flat eye shadow brush, apply the gold shimmery shade from Prestige's Sun Diamond Eye Palette from the lash bed all the way to the crease.

THE EYES - Prepped eye area. Dont forget to apply some primer on the lower lash line as well.

THE EYES - Set the eye area with Bourjois liquid shadow in Gold. Apply it from the lash bed all the way to the crease.

THE BASE - With the Eyeko Tinted Cream and Benefit's Some Kind of Gorgeous.

THE BASE - I used Eyeko Tinted as my Pre Make Up Base to give me a nice looking tan. Eyeko is available on line, however, you can use a tinted moitsuriser. I applied Benefit's Some Kind of Gorgeous after. It glides on smoothly, perfect for the dewy look that we are after.



Last year I did a make up look inspired by Adriana Lima and last week I got a request from Lina on my email for the instructions on how to do the eyes.



I replaced some of the products as because most of the products that I used on the original post are either discontinued or I just got them as a freebie :)



Hope you like this Lina :)
