As a primer, I used Revlon's foundation primer. It is another great dupe for the Smashbox primer. I then used a damp makeup sponge and applied Black Opal's liquid foundation, a Truly Topaz and Hazelnut. I then used Mac Mineralize Skin Finish in Medium Deep all over and used Dark to emphasize her already sculpted features.
Eyes and Cheeks
To prep the eyes, I used Urban Decay's Primer Potion on the entire lid. I then placed MAC's Groundwork paintpot over the entire lid to serve as a great base. I used a wet flat brush and applied Mac's Era over the entire lid and lightly creased her eyes with Saddle. I followed up with Loreal's Carbon Black mascara and a deep brown liner in her waterline.
On her cheeks I used Nars Taj Mahal on the apples of her cheeks and Mac's Format on the cheek bone as a soft highlighter.
The Diva Look
Eyes and Cheeks
I simply built on the base above and added Illmasqua's Liquid Metal in Gold over one third of the eye lid. On the remaining two thirds, I used NYX's jumbo pencil in Rust, topped with Smashbox' Minx (taupe brown with soft bronze shimmer). I then used a combination of MAC's Saddle and Make Up Forever's brown in her crease, defining the natural "v". Era by MAC was used on her brow bone. Using Wet n Wild's Mega Eye Cream liner in black, I created a thin line close to her lashes, posing a great foundation for the Ardel Wispy lashes. Her waterline was rimmed in MAC's kohl liner in Smolder.
On her cheeks, I used Mac's Hushabye, a baby doll pink color.
On Christy's lips, I used NYX's lip shine in Bronze.
