Makeup Monday: Chocolate Monochromatic Look

Hello World!

I created this look for the e.l.f. Beautyscape contest, so here's the tutorial on how I created this Chocolate Monochromatic Look!

Step 1: Prime! I have oily-combination skin, so I like to use two different primers - a hydrating one and a mattifying one. I first used the Urban Decay Quick Fix Complexion Prep Priming Spray all over my face, and then I applied the Benefit POREfessional Matte Rescue gel  in my T-zone.

Step 2: Foundation!  I used e.l.f. Aqua Beauty Mouse Foundation, but since I wanted a little more coverage, I mixed in the Urban Decay Velvetizer Translucent Mix-In Medium.

Step 3: Concealer! I applied concealer to brighten my undereye area and cover any dark circles and to highlight the bridge of my noseI used  the Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector in the shade Medium/Deep.  I let my concealer sit for while before blending it out, so I can get maximum coverage! 

Step 4: Eyebrows! While waiting I'm waiting for my concealer, I filled in my eyebrows! I used Benefit Goofproof Brow pencil in the shade Deep -06 to fill in by brows and then set them with Benefit 24-Hr Brow Setter.

Step 5: Powder! I  blended out my concealer, and immediately set it with powder! I used MAC x PatrickStarr Patrick's Powder.  I baked under my eye, and also dusted the powder all over my face to set my foundation. 

Step 6: Bronzer!  I applied bronzer to the perimeter and contours of my face. I used the darkest shade the Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette

Step 7: Eyes!  I first applied the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Groundwork all over my lid as an eyeshadow base and primer. I used two different palettes for this look. I first used the shade, Sundae Funday (medium neutral brown) , from the Beauty Bakerie Eyescream Palette, and I blended that color into my crease. I then used the shade, Drive thru (warm dark brown), from that same palette, and blended that into my crease, focusing on the outer corner. Lastly, I applied the shade Peach Tart, from the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette, all over my lid.

Step 8: Highlight!  I applied highlighter lightly to the tops of my checks, browbone, and bridge of my nose. I used the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in the shade, Opal. 

Step 9: Set! I used the Boscia White Charcoal Mattifying Setting Spray  to set all the powders on my face. 

Step 10: Eyeliner and mascara!
  I applied liner to both tmy op and bottom lash line and I used the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in the shade Rococa (golden brown). I then followed that with the L'oreal  Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara. 

Step 11: Lips! I finished the look off with the Sephora #Lipstories Lipstick in the shade Fireside.

Step 12: Selfie! Share on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat,, etc. 

Happy Makeup Monday!
