The final vlogger recreation should have been posted yesterday. Family time interrupted that. I do have to say my day ended with seeing the new Amy Schumer movie “I Feel Pretty”. That is the perfect movie for the GYPSYAlice beauty month. Its all about realizing your own beauty, not what society thinks it should be. That is why I love todays vlogger. Gemma Louise Miles is a vlogger that keeps everything real. She’s honest about insecurities and building up self confidence. Whether you like to keep your look all natural or you like the dramatic look, its all about what you like! So lets get started. This is a very quick and easy look that shimmers to perfection!
I started with my current prep products since my skin has been dry. First the NIP+FAB plumping serum and DR.brandt NO MORE BAGGAGE for around my eyes. Next I used L’Oréal cell renewal. Once all that is absorbed I primed with MAC strobe cream and for eye priming Urban Decay primer potion. For foundation and concealer I used the Nars foundation and Tarte shape tape. Before getting started with Gemma’s tutorial I also completed my brows first using the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow. Gemma has some high arches so for this look I tried to arch them as much as I could but still keep it natural. Yeah, they look more like hills. LOL!
I wanted to keep the contouring light but noticeable for this look so I used the Tarte Amazonian clay blush from the hollows of my cheeks up the temples along the hairline. I also used it for a little bronzing along my forehead and jawline. Since I had been up for a long time and still had a few hours to go I needed to brighten up under my eyes. So using the Maybelline brightening cream generously under my eyes. To highlight I combined the Cover FX enhancer and the Makeup Revolution liquid highlighter. The Cover FX has a bronzy tint and the Makeup Revolution has a more pearlier color. I applied them both only on my upper cheekbone and blotted it in with my beauty blender. I also applied both along the top of my nose and on my cupids bow blending it in really well to give a soft glow.
To keep the shimmer going I applied the Lorac propalette shade champagne on the inner corner of my eyes to cover the fact I was exhausted and lighten up my eyes. I also applied it over my lids up to the brow bone. The next shade is a color that is probably my favorite shade ever! Its L’Oréal infallible in amber rush. It is an amber-pinky metallic and it is a powder but it goes on so creamy and beautiful. I applied it over my lids and blended it to the outer corner. I love this color!
One step I didn’t see in the video was under eye color. So I applied the Lorac propalette sable on the lower lash line and buffed a little in the outer corner to give depth. I hoped to use false lashes for this look. I went to Sephora and found a pair of HudaBeauty lashes. They are great quality and very sturdy but the set I bought are a bit too full for my eyes. I’m not giving up but for this look I stayed with mascara. I did apply several coats to give a fuller look. The last step was my lips. Gemma does a neutral look so I applied my trusty Rimmel 1000 kisses liner in wild clover. I wanted to use this as my primary color so I filled my lips in completely. Then to give a little shimmer I used Trust Fund Beauty highlighter that Glo tho. I applied it with my finger and tapped it in the center. And with that my shimmer shimmer is done! So light and shimmery I looked awake! Another reason I love watching her videos, aside from her talent and personality, Gemma uses reasonably priced products and when she does a clothing haul more often than not they are reasonably priced outfits as well. She is very relatable.
I hope you enjoyed this week of influential vlogger recreations. Beauty month is almost over but before we go, next week is a fun week. We go to the circus, go back in time, a 24 karat look and 2 looks that explain the GYPSYAlice name! OH ITS GONNA BE A COLORFUL WEEK!!!! Until then be creative and have fun!!!! LOVE YOU!!!!
