I love watching YouTube. I’ve gotten into the habit of watching videos while I get ready in the morning and really enjoy it. A good month ago now I was watching In The Frow’s makeup tutorial for New Year’s Eve. I loved how different it was and really wanted to recreate the look.
Victoria used the Lorac Mega Pro 2 palette, which is really hard to get in Canada. I was feeling a bit discouraged, but after looking through my own makeup collection, I found some suitable alternatives.
Today I thought I would share with you guys how I created Victoria’s super pretty look using all drugstore makeup!
For my base I used the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin foundation. This gives great coverage and is a good colour match for my skin.
I then brightened my under eye area and covered any blemishes with the Maybelline Master Conceal, which is hands down the best drugstore concealer I’ve used so far.
I warmed up my skin using the Rimmel London Natural Bronzer and the Maybelline Fit ME Blush in ‘Light Pink’.
I cheated when it came to highlighter. Because I don’t have a drugstore highlight I opted to use BECCA’s ‘Champagne Pop’, but there are lots of drugstore options.
For my eyes, I applied the Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks in the shade ‘Melon’ into my crease.
I then used my Maybelline The Nudes palette and took the shimmery gold shade onto my eyelid from the inner corner until about half way across my lid. I also took a little bit underneath my eye on my lower lash line from the inner corner until about a quarter of the way across my eye.
Then, I took another of the Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks in the shade ‘Periwinkle’ and applied this from my outer corner to the center of my eyelid where the gold shadow started. I also ran it along my lower lash line from the outer corner until it met the gold shadow.
I then made sure to blend out the finished look to avoid any harsh lines.
Lastly I went back in with my Maybelline The Nudes palette and took the top left shade on my brow bone and inner corner for added highlighting.
I then used the Essence Super Fine Eyeliner Pen for my eyeliner and the Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious mascara.
To complete the look I used the NYX Butter Gloss in the shade ‘Crème Brulee’.
What do you guys think of this look?
