I have to say, this month was EXCELLENT. I thought the product selection was great, and the fact that we were also given a full size Em by Michelle Phan product to try made me so happy! (We also received a 30% off coupon code for Em by Michelle Phan products, so of course I picked up a few of her fan favorites- expect a review to come soon!!)
For this tutorial, I will be using the Starlooks eye pencil and the em lipstick to create a perfect makeup look for day or night! To begin, start by priming your eyes with an eyeshadow primer. This will ensure your eyeshadows do not budge throughout the day and also keep them crease-free. Because we will be using a creamy eye pencil, we will need a good base for the pencil to adhere to, making eye primer extra important for this look. I am using Urban Decays Shadow Potion, and it works great! If you are interested in it, you can check it out here.
To set the cream pencil, I applied a MAC pressed pigment in the color "black grape" to the lid, as well as swept some across my lower lash line. I concentrated the pigment on the outer corners of my eyes, to create a gradual smokey eye.
Pressed Pigments are my absolute favorite- they are so easy to use, you can apply them with your fingers, they come in tons of great colors, and they aren't as messy as loose pigments! Have I sold you on them yet!?
Now, since my lashes are pretty much non-existent, I am going to apply some falsies! My favorites are the demi lashes by Ardell! If you are just starting out with false eyelashes, or have never used them before, I recommend trying demi lashes. Since they only go on the outer half of your lash line, they are easier to blend into your natural lash line. Our natural lashes tend to get thinner and shorter toward our inner eye, so sometimes it can be hard to blend in false lashes that go all the way across.
After I applied the falsies, I added some white eyeshadow to the inner corners of my eyes. This brightens up your eyes, as well as making them look larger!
Lastly, for lips I applied Em by Michelle Phans sheer lipstick in "cupcake pink" and topped it off with some pink lipgloss by MAC!
