By Popular Demand...Photoshoot Makeup

Hi Bellas,

You might remember this video where I showed a sneak peak into a little photoshoot I was doing. I got such a positive reaction on my makeup that I decided to do a tutorial.

So I recreated it using the exact same products. I put a little bit more time in this one though, lol, because at the photoshoot I kind of just slapped it on, ha ha.

Here's what I used (All MAC unless otherwise specified)

-too faced e/s insurance primer
-gesso e/s
-goldenrod e/s (pro color)
-orange e/s
-carbon e/s
-fascinating kohl pencil
-revlon colorstay liquid liner in blackest black
-elise false lashes
-max factor 2000 calorie mascara
-anastasia brow kit

-elf bronzer in warm tan

-redd lipliner
-electro lipstick

Here's the actual tutorial:

It's funny because by random coincidence I was contacted to do the wedding makeup for a couple...and I went to school with the husband-to-be! He told me that he saw this video and was like , "whoa, no tiger eyes for this wedding. Just a bunch of conservative caucasian girls." LOL, poor guy thinks I'm probably going to make them show girls. I really can do natural makeup, I just like to do fun, dramatic looks on myself. Anywho...back to the makeup.

Here's the look:

Hey girl! That was an awesome tutorial. I have an orange e/s from NYX & I've never tried orange e/s on me. Scared that it won't look right, but your tutorial gave me a little courage to try it out! You make putting on fake eyelashes, too easy. I use dual eyeglue, wait until it's tacky, but it never stays put for me. I usually rips them off after a minute, lolx. Great job, though!
I'm going to have to book you to do my makeup, one day! =D

Askmewhats said...

you look very very pretty! the colors are so lovely!!! you blended it soooo well!!!

mayaari said...

lovely as always - I'm always impressed with your makeup - you can see all the colors that you used, but they're still blended together so well, so there aren't any harsh lines :) those false lashes are gorgeous!

hey renren! i hope you don't mind but i asked pursebuzz if she could post this look on her website so others can enjoy your artistry! thanks!

Linda said...

Hi RenRen!

I would like to know how much do you charge to do a live tutorial? I watch your videos along with all the other makeup tutorial videos that I subscribe to and after I finish I'm like yeah I can do this but when I get in front of the mirror I become clueless..haha! And sometimes my eyes just does not turn out right. I like color and I would like to be able to use it instead of sticking with the safe colors.
You have done an awesome job!
