As I was watching my favorite make-up artist on YouTube I found her how-to for her Coachella look. I love the Boho look and wanted to try to recreate it. In the video Jaime first creates the eye and face make up look first and she is right, its perfect for every day. Then she adds the white tribal markings and with just a few lines and dots she creates a beautiful and quick festival look. Lets see how I do….
I finally remembered to use my Urban Decay primer potion on my eyes first. They say the memory is the first to go as you age. For a base coat I used Cream from the Lorac propallete. Then blended in taupe from the same pallete into the crease. To complete the eye look I used the generic Walmart pallete and NYX ombre blush. Yup blush! The color is amazing! From the Walmart pallete I used ice queen. Its a beautiful orange. This was added to the crease and blended into the taupe with a little on the lids. Next I used the pink from the NYX ombre blush dabbed on the outer corner of my eye. This color combination is gorgeous! I dabbed on some taupe in the center of my lid over the cream because the cream looked a little too bright for the end result.
After moisturizing with the L’oreal cell renewal serum I applied the Nars foundation and a combination of Tarte shape tape and Maybelline brightening concealer. For my lashes I re-used the Eylure lashes and then applied Maybelline pumped up mascara on the top lashes. Before applying the mascara to my lower lashes I used Ice Queen along the water line to create a smokey look then dabbed a bit of pink blush on the outer corner. With that the eyes have it!
To contour today I used Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Feisty! This gave a less brown and more reddish/orange contour. Blending along the cheek bone and up through the temples I buffed it along my hairline on my forehead. This gave be a beautiful bronzed look. Then as Jaime used to deepen the contour with The Balms Bahama Mama I applied the same product at the start of my cheek bone and half way down the Tarte blush then buffed the two shades together. For highlight I first applied the BECCA highlighter in opal just above the Tarte blush. This didn’t give me the lightness I was wanting so I turned to the Make-up Revolution Strobe highlighter in gold addict. This was the shade to use! I also dusted a bit along my nose and cupids bow of my lips. I love this highlighter.
To complete the base look (before tribal marks) Jaime goes for a nude lip. So for this I used the Rimmel 1000 kisses in wild clover to line my lips. To fill in my lips I used a NYX Lingerie matte gloss in satin ribbon that was in a previous Ipsy package. The lip gloss is so creamy. I finished the day to day look with NYX dewy finishing spray. NYX has amazing products and the added benefit…low cost.
But that’s not all! Today we are going for that Boho/Festival/Coachella look. Jaime used the NYX white liquid liner for the tribal marks. I went to ULTA today and they were out of the liquid liner so I went for the NYX jumbo eye pencil in the shade Milk.
The jumbo eye pencil worked great but I will still be on the search for the liquid liner. I’m finding more use through all these looks for white liner! So with a few dots above the brows, a line on my lower lip, a couple lines across the bridge of my nose and up the forehead…we are done! TIME TO PARTY!!! OK, My living room isn’t Coachella but that just means more libations for me! I really hope you enjoyed not only todays look but also all the looks so far this month. There are still more to come along with a few surprises! Rest up over the weekend and be ready for Monday. Definitely check out Jaime Genevive’s YouTube videos. She is amazing!
