The tutorial above is for those of you who prefer cool toned eyeshadow looks. Not everyone likes or suits warm eyeshadow - which we have come to associate with Valentine’s Day makeup tutorials nowadays. So this halo effect eyeshadow is perfect for those of you that love a smoky eye with more of a sombre finish.

Okay so here’s a bad attempt at a colorizing tutorial.. i use ipiccy.com for this because i want you guys to be able edit as well without paying for the newest, best photoshop. ps. ipiccy is free so yeah good shit right there
okay step 1: you’re going to go into the “professional touch ups” area, the icon should be a face. you’re going to want to choose the “sunny tan” (lol that name tho) and choose the center color because it is both red and yellow toned. and fill in her face and neck and whatever
you’ll see that the color is too harsh against the hair so we’re going to take the erase tool which i have clicked on in the screen shot
and you’re going to make your tool really big so that you can do a sort of “blending” effect into the rest of the hair, cuz we gonna do the hair laterr
step two: go to the little icon that looks like a dslr camera and find the curves tool we’re going to be using this for basically everything else
we’re going to be adding natural tones into the skin so i started with the “green channel” and “red channel” and you’re going to add this to the high points on the face (kind of like highlighting)
and make sure you blend this out as well you don’t want her looking crazy af
do the same with the blush
should look a little something like this.
step three: lips. ooh lalalalalalalal look at them lips okay anyway. yeah you can go crazy and do whatever the fuck you want. like whatever color you want.
step four: eye shadow time. ariana likes her warm, red, pink eyeshadow. so thats what i usually try to create. and you can add some other colors in her crease as well (this is actually a makeup tutorial y’all). do whatever the fuck you want lol such good tutorial but you can use the curves tool for this as well
step five: fix them brows. they too crazy. tone them down with a little black and white filter.
step six: time to do that hair. go back to the face icon on the top and find the “hair color” i usually go for a brunette type deal so yeah you can use the curves tool for this if you wanna do something else idk
then i just went in and added highlights and low lights, but i didnt catch that on screenshot so yeah fail.com
step seven: you want to find small details that need to be colored in like the glasses on her shirt. you can keep them silver or gold…i went for like a rose gold thing so yeah
ok we almost done but step 8: fix that damn skin tone. she look dead af. go back to the dslr looking icon and find the color balance. make it a little red and a little yellow. make sure you fade this out or else she gonna be looking like donald trump with too many spray tans and no one wants that. no one.
before adding the color
okay step nine: color in her eyes. my lazy ass uses the hair color tool again although you can use anything you want. just make those eyes brown
last step is pretty chill just go back to the curves tool and change the tones to blend everything together. like add more contrast to the overall image or add a filter over it idc. be creative
i’ll post the final image after i post this “tutorial”
CeraVe, DermaE (loads of products with (AHA’s/BHA’s), and The Ordinary all make great affordable skin care that I trust will be decent to great products.
Makeup Revolution is sort of killing it with all their cheek products lately. So many highlight and blush formulas and shades to choose from, even matte blushes which is sort of rare at the drugstore. Same with Essence! Essence has loads of affordable highlight shades, matte bronzers and blushes. I love their Brow Me Up, it’s a great dupe for Glossier’s Boy Brow.
Sonia Kashuk sort of makes think of the NARS of the drugstore. Maybe its the packing. Their products usually don’t let me down.
Pacifica is a great option for my vegan, all natural beauty lovers. They sell Pacifica at Target, Ulta and some drugstores. Even places like Whole Foods. I trust their products will look really soft and pretty on my skin and won’t feel overly cheap or cause reactions. Lots of their products are infused with things like coconut oil, rose water, antioxidants, etc. Plus their packaging is really cute. Oh my god and their blood tuscan orange perfume (only $22!) was my summer scent all through out my first few years of college.
I also wish more drugstore brands made single eyeshadows like the Shea Moisture Mineral Eye Shadows. For those looking for warm, reddish/purple eyeshadows try using their mineral blushes, they come in awesome red and plum shades! Shea Moisture also has loads of complexion product shades for those with deeper skin tones!!
