Focusing on fun but wearable looks with entirely Gluten Free Cosmetics.
So who’s been watching the Olympics? At our house, the TV is on almost 24/7, for as long as the Olympics play. In fact, it’s been keeping me from writing as much as I should… *blush-cough* But yeah, as I was watching it occurred to me how fun it would be to do a Team USA inspired look. I know, it’s being done by everyone right now, but not gluten free!
So! Behold! A Gluten Free Team USA look! Or any other red, white and blue themed flag. I don’t discriminate against other countries who have the same colors on their flags, so y’all can use it too. 😛 Hehehe…
This look is actually super, super simple. The “hardest” part is doing the red lips and even that isn’t “hard” at all.
Prep your face with your favorite liquid foundation, cutting any shine with a matching powder dusted over it. Also, it’s often best to fill in your brows at this point, though personally I always forget. Except not this time! *is proud of herself*
- Using Monave’s Bright Blue pencil eyeliner, line your top lashline rather thickly, just how thick is up to you.
- Dampen a liner brush and with Mermaid Lagoon, go over the blue eyeliner. The liner from the previous step will not only help enhance the color, but also give the eyeshadow one more thing to grip. RAL’s eyeshadows have excellent staying power anyway, but with the eyeliner you have a serious all night hold.
- Clean out your previous liner brush and wet it again, then apply Buttercream along your lower lash line. Again, how thick you do it is up to you. Because it’s a bright pearly color, it is going to bring forward whatever part of your eye it’s on. So, if your eyes are slightly puffy today, you may want to make sure it stays above the puff.
- Finish off with mascara and the red lips from this tutorial and you’re done! No blush at all in this look, because we already have TONS of color on the eyes and lips. Too much color and you may end up looking a wee bit clownish.
And there ‘ya have it!
