Makeup

Newtral.

Hi, I’m Cara. I like naturally looking makeup.
Well, I’m practically addicted to it.
Which is good because that’s what I do best. But it is also a little bit limiting.
Every once in a while I like to flex my more-makeup-muscles and see how it turns out:)
In this case I stayed with mostly neutrals but used a lip color that I love because it’s not loud or bright but it’s definitely unexpected.
Could it make you look dead? Yeah, it definitely has that potential. I think it’s best paired with some good highlight and a crisp looking eye for that reason.
Here’s my tutorial on how I do it:

(also my face is pretty puffy here. sometimes when I eat too much sugar+ don’t drink enough water = puffy face. Let that be a lesson to me.)

What I used:

IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette in Iconic & Warmth
Clinique Black Kohl Shaper
OCC Lip Liner in Sebastian
TOPSHOP Lip Color Boardroom (sold out! Raquel tipped me off that Bite in Cava is super close!)
(also wearing sunlit & walnut IIID foundation in this video)

    Gorgeous! I’ve been wanting to try some products from IT Cosmetics for a really long time now, but I never knew what to start with. I’m pretty sure I need that palette in my life…

      Try this: http://www.amazon.com/Pixi-Lip-Line-No-9-Orchid/dp/B009PESHWA It came in one of the Allure beauty boxes and I’ve been using it lately. It is a little drying but with some gloss on top it is gorgeous! Very “Kylie Jenner/90s”

        Bite lipstick in Cava may be similar, it’s described as a lilac beige, kind of a taupey-plum neutral on me. I really love it though, hope this helps!

    I so want that lipstick and now I’m bumming about it being sold out! Should have just ordered it the first time you mentioned it. What about MAC Cosmo or Taupe for dupes? Neither looks quite right but without swatches it’s hard to tell.

    Beautiful take a new neutral. The eye sare striking and the lip is beautiful!! I have been reading your blog religiously since I read about you in Allure. You are an inspiration to women, especially those like me who gave up on make up for a while. When I got your maskcara makeup last year it made make up fun for me again. I went through a time that I thought because I am a stay at home mom, I don’t need to wear makeup. I have since decided that I want to wear make up and feel pretty, even if I am just hanging out with my daughter all day. 🙂

    GORGEOUS! I would never have thought of using this color, but I LOVE it! I’m a natural blonde with fair skin, what are your thoughts on making this work on a lighter girl? Same/different undertones? I want to try it but I’m worried the dead look would really be in full effect! 🙂

    Cara,

    I’m about ready to buy new foundation and I can’t help but think I want to try your IIID. I’m just not sure which colors to use. Do you have a guide if I told you what I’m using now??

    That lipstick reminds me a little of Lime Crime’s Cashmere Velvetine lipstick.Not sure how easy it is to find though.

    I’m fair-skinned with blonde hair and I like the Mac Rihanna Viva Glam II. Its not as dark as Boardroom, but I find that layering it with some Staunchly Stylish is the perfect neutral lip. Just thought I would share. 🙂

    I sort of think that MAC’s lipstick in Twig looks similar to Boardroom by Topshop.

    Love the look. Do you recommend an eyeliner to line the insides of your eyes for people who wear contacts? 🙂

      I’m not sure if she would recommend it but I’ve been wearing contacts since I was 12 and have no problems when I line my tear line. Just my experience though. 🙂
