Daytime Anastasia Shadow Couture Makeup Look

As I have already created a heavier evening look with the Anastasia Shadow Couture palette, I though it is only appropriate that I create a slightly lighter more daytime appropriate makeup look. I say ‘slightly’ as this definitely isn’t an everyday makeup look, but as it is a little less smokey and heavy it is something you can tweak and wear during the day time. I hope you like this look, and read on to find out how I created it.

I went for a warm jewel toned eye look with a matte pink nude lip. I kept the skin very light and day time appropriate with subtle contouring and cream highlight. I added a bit of smoke by smoking out the eyeliner slightly and also adding a warm brown to the crease. The theme here is warm pink hues, neutral with a bit of oomph. I added false lashes to add a bit of drama to the look but you can easily skip that step to make it more day appropriate. I think this is quite a sweet romantic look.

Eye Makeup Products:

As always, I started off with my brows by filling them in with Dip Brow and setting them with the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel. I used the Anastasia Concealer under the brows to give them a cleaner finish and applied Eden UDPP all over the lid to prep for the eyeshadow. Next I used Soft Peach under the brows a highlight and all over the lid as a transition shade. Applying a neutral shadow all over the lid and especially over the crease really seems to help blend shadows later on. Next I concentrated on the crease. I applied Morocco to the crease and then blended that out with Soft Peach. I then went in Fudge just above the lid and blended that out. I also added a little more depth by using Noir in the crease. After I was finished with the crease, I added Intense Gaze all over the lid. I went in with Bellini in the inner corner of the eye as a highlight and added a bit of Fudge to the outer corner/outer V of my lid to make it a little more seamlessly put together. I applied Noir as a shadow liner over the lash line and went over it with liquid eyeliner. Under the bottom lash line I added a little of Noir and Fudge just to line it. Finally after applied pencil liner, mascara and false lashes, the look was complete.

Face and Lip Makeup Product:

For my face makeup I left it quite light and dewy, with the aid of the Elemis Flash Balm. I mixed a bit of the Illamasqua Skin Base with the flash balm to create light coverage and buffed that over my face. Next I added concealer in a triangle shape under my eyes to highlight that section of my face. Using my fingers very lightly I applied Sculpt 2 from the Glambase Wheel on the hollows of my cheekbones and blended that out for a subtle contour. I sprayed some Fix+ on to a brush and dabbed it in MAC Pearl, once I got enough product onto my brush I dabbed it on to the apples of my cheeks (the Fix+ helps with the blending). I went over it with the highlight shades of the Shimmer Brick. Finally I applied Tarte Exposed blusher on lightly.

For my lips, I done something similar to what I done for my previous Anastasia Shadow Couture makeup look, I lined my lips with MAC Spice, and applied MAC Taupe on the centre of the lips. This time I left out the ombre finish.

And that is it for this makeup look, I know the writing makes it look like it is complicated but I would say this is quite a simple look to recreate. You may need to spend more time on the eyes, but the rest of the face is very simple. I hope you liked my daytime Anastasia Shadow Couture makeup look, I know it might be a bit heavy for some of you but I think you could make it work very easily by reducing the smoke and false lashes! Let me know what look you would like to see next, Tanzina x
