Oscars Make-up: Shimmery Golds & Red Lips

Luni seara am fost invitata la doua evenimente: aniversarea a 10 ani de L’Oreal in Romania si aniversarea a 4 ani de Bucharest Style. Pentru ca  buzz-ul Oscarurilor era inca prezent, am fost inspirata sa fac un machiaj corespunzator, in tonuri de auriu. E simplu, dar de efect si multe persoane l-au admirat. Fardurile metalice/sidefate aurii nu se vor demoda niciodata, iar buzele au vrut sa fie un ombre de la rosu la portocaliu care se vedea tare dragut in realitate, dar pe care nu am reusit sa-l surprind in poze din cauza blitz-ului. Buclele au fost facute la Green Day Spa si au rezistat eroic. Sper sa va placa!

Monday night I was invited to two events: the 10 year anniversary of L’Oreal in Romania and the 4 year anniversary of Bucharest Style and since the Oscars were still in trend I decided to do an inspired make-up look. Metallic/shimmery gold eyeshadow will never go out of style and the lips were supposed to be a red/orange ombre that looked lovely in real life. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to capture it on camera. The curls were done at Green Day Spa and lasted the whole night. I hope you like it!

Grad de dificultate/ Difficulty level:  
Cum se realizeaza / How to do it:
Am inceput prin a pregati pleoapele cu fond de ten si pudra si am aplicat primer pentru ca machiajul sa reziste intreaga zi. Apoi am aplicat o baza cremoasa (NYX Jumbo pencil – Cottage Cheese) pe pleoapa mobila pentru ca fardul sa adere mai bine si sa fie mai intens. Am tapotat nuanta 1 (un auriu sidefat din paleta Shany) pe pleoapa mobila, apoi am adaugat nuanta 2, un peach mat din aceeasi paleta, in pliul pleoapei. Sub spranceana am folosit nuanta 3, un alb sidefat, si am folosit o nuanta medie de maro in coltul exterior. Am aplicat L’Oreal Super Liner Silkissime si apoi l-am difuzat cu un fard maro mai inchis pentru un efect mai smoky. Am aplicat aceeasi nuanta si pe linia genelor de jos. Apoi am folosit si rimel si am aplicat 3 fire de gene false individuale in coltul exterior al ochiului.  

I started by prepping my eyelids with foundation and powder and added primer so that the make-up would last longer. Then I used a creamy base (NYX Jumbo pencil – Cottage Cheese) on the lid so that the eye shadows would have something to adhere to and last longer. I pressed shade 1 on the lid (a shimmery gold from the Shany Palette), then I added shade 2, a matte peach color, in the crease. I used a shimmery white from the same palette under the eyebrow and a medium brown in the outer corner. Towards the end I applied L’Oreal Super Liner Silkissime and I smudged it out using a darker brown for a smoked out look; I put the same color on the lower lashes. Then I used mascara and applied individual lashes in the outer corner of the eyes.
