Can you tell that I love challenges?! 😉 Bean boozled was a weird challenge that blew up a couple years ago and was never something I wanted to try out. First, I hate jelly beans and second, I didn’t see the point in eating horrible tasting jelly beans. But since starting back on YouTube I wondered if anyone had done the challenge and incorporated makeup into the fold. So, I thought, why not go for it? My amazing hubby Mike graciously volunteered to be part of it which made things even more exciting!
Have you noticed that challenge floating around where you use every colour in an eyeshadow palette? Some people even go as crazy as using 20+ shadows to create an eye look. This is a challenge that definitely challenges you to be creative and test your skills which is what I’m all about. So obviously, I had to take on the challenge myself and filmed it all for you guys!
I’m gonna be real with you guys for a second. I’ve been dealing with a lot of personal issues for the past year that, as a huge makeup lover, have prevented me from doing any makeup tutorials. I’ve been struggling with feeling good about myself and the way that I look that every time I’ve put makeup on, it’s really hard to see the good when I see a lot of bad. I’m trying to work through my issues and rise above it for you guys because I love doing makeup tutorials, but it’s going to be tough. I just want you guys to know that there still is a face behind the blog and she’s trying really hard to come back out again!
For the past month, I’ve been working with a Canadian indie makeup brand called Inspire Cosmetics and the experience has definitely been helping me with my self esteem. Their brand is all about embracing your individuality and enhancing it with highly pigmented and professional quality products. I’ve been playing around a lot with the products I received in my Experience Box and knew right from the start that I wanted to create a fun makeup look with them.
Start by using a creamy pencil to fill in your brows. They frame your face and are a great starting point for putting together a makeup look. Top your brows with a brow powder in a shade slightly darker to set the brow pencil and define your brow edges.
Carve out the surrounding area around your brows with a creamy concealer and a concealer brush.
Apply a light beige eyeshadow base to your lids and brow bone.
With a crease brush, apply a green-blue shadow to your crease and outer 1/3 of your eye lid and blend outwards.
Define your crease by lining it with a teal liquid liner.
Apply a green concealer to your lids with a concealer brush to define below the crease and create a sticky base for the pigment and then apply a green pigment to your lids with a flat brush.
Apply a few dots of tinted moisturizer on the forehead, cheeks, chin and nose and buff out.
Smooth on a stick concealer on your under eyes and any blemishes or discoloration by applying it with your ring finger.
Set your base makeup with a powder that matches your skin tone.
Apply a soft pink blush to your cheeks.
Line your lips with a dusty pink liner and slick on a pink gloss over top.
Set your makeup with a dewy setting spray.
