Makeup Tutorial: Pinterest Request

I fell in love with this gorgeous lady and her makeup so deeply that I had to do a tutorial.
This has definitely been one of those looks that you do once and it gets you in a rut where you can’t bring yourself to do any other look.
It’s just the right amount of definition to look very soft but still show off your eyes.
I hope you love it!

    Hi Cara!

    Beautiful job! I’m in the need for a major overhaul and need some expertise PLEASE!!! I would like a really good liquid foundation and setting powder(with some color). I have combed through your site multiple times and have read tons of reviews. NARS, Makeup Forever, Stila and on and on. I am 44 with light olive complexion and super oily!!!! I’m thinking an oil free product but also read they can dry you out. Would like some coverage as well to cover up my uneven skin tone and sun spots. A primer possibly???

    Why don’t I just ask for a magic wand, right???

    So, could you recommend some really good foundations and setting powder so I can stop the madness!!!!! Thanks so much!!

    Steph

      I’m not Cara but I am super super oily still in my 30’s (I think I have gotten MORE oily not less) AND I live in the desert (it was 116 today). I tried a TON of stuff and the Smashbox BB Cream (NOT the CC it’s for regular to dry skin). Anyway it really works all by itself (and their BB eyes for dark circles). Just sharing because it took me so so many tries to find something that wouldn’t come off/get absorbed.

Also do you recommend a color lighter than your skin tone or you correct color match. I have you medium foundation right now. I love your tutorials they are real and not overdone, keep them coming!

    • Reply
      Cara
      July 22, 2014 at 8:07 am

      Sometimes I just prefer the speed of a brush (since you have to get the blender damp and then tap it in, it seems to take a bit longer) or if I am applying to an area that needs more precision than the blender can offer (because of its size) but other than that as far as creams and liquids go they are pretty interchangeable πŸ™‚

    This is your best look of recent! I love it. My four year old daughter loved watching it, she’s already a make-up lover and hates that I won’t let her wear any. Now to my question; I love false eyelashes but I always feel so conspicuous with them on, as if everyone I look it can automatically tell that I’m wearing lashes. Is there a lash that I can wear everyday that aren’t so dramatic? I’m a stay at home mom and I wear make-up everyday but fake eyelashes seem a bit much for a trip to Target.

      Starting at four!? A girl after my own heart! Once you get a hang of them falsies are so easy and you lose the feeling that you look like a crazy lash lady! With lash extensions becoming so popular I think it’s strange at all to see dramatic lashes ask over the place (even the gym!)

    Love it ! Went to CVS this morning but was a little confused on the Milani highlighter . The vanilla highlighter you list doesn’t look like the one you use in the video. The vanilla has a brown brown pencil but in the video it looks like its light on both ends ? Maybe the selection at my store was limited. Any idea when your new IIID is going to be available ? . Could u possible recommend something close to it in your tutorials . I’m desperate for a back up product . Im nursing my second IIID in dark and I’ve been out of med for 7 months . It’s killing me !!!

      Weird! I’ll double check that Milani liner! So the closest highlighter I’ve found for the medium is Mary Kay yellow concealer! In this case I used the light though which is still in stock! Gosh I’m so sorry it is taking so long! I’m amazed at how long of a prices it is when you make changes!

    Also, I personally really like the videography in this one…but then I have no problem with any of your videos. πŸ™‚

    Love this tutorial! I will definitely be trying those eye lining techniques. Also just wanted to say that I am THRILLED that you will be offering the IIID colors separately. The medium contour is perfect for me, but the highlight is way too yellow. In the light, the highlight color is a much better fit (although it still sits weird on my skin), but the contour is way too light. You are awesome!

      Using a yellow-based highlighting concealer or foundation, like Cara’s IIID highlighting foundation, on your t-zone and in a “pie piece” under your eyes/on the tops of your cheeks can really help hide the redness. I know the medium is out of stock right now, but she suggested Mary Kay concealer in yellow in a response above, and she used to use the Maybelline Dream Lumi highlighter before she created IIID. Hope that helps!

      Loreal has a green primer that really helps with redness! It cancels out all red tones and then leaves a fresh palette for your foundation, I love it! http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod1980037

I even did a Pinterest search a while back for “Phoebe Tonkin makeup” without any luck. So you can imagine I was just thrilled when this tutorial showed up in my feed yesterday! I need to update a couple of my products, but even just using what I have, the look is just fantastic.Thanks so much!
