To the people who look at the stars and wish…..
….To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.
It’s here guys! A Court of Wings and Ruin officially launched today. No doubt as you’re reading this, I’ll be sitting patiently waiting for Amazon to post my copy through the letterbox. Nothing is going to get done until I read this book!
I changed my mind on what I wanted the final tutorial to be. It was originally going to be a City of Dreams inspired tutorial, however I went back and decided that I wanted to do a Starfall inspired tutorial instead.
The Starfall chapter is definitely one of the more romantic and mysterious chapters in the book. Nobody knows why the stars do what they do on Starfall. It feels such a sad moment but also truly beautiful. I actually have a Starfall Fan Art as my phone lock screen at the moment. I just love that chapter so much!
So as you can imagine, this look does involve glitter and it it a colourful one. It’s the perfect way to finish this series.
For the base, I’ve actually had quite a bit of redness lately, so I had to use a fuller coverage foundation. The only one that I own at the moment is the Urban Decay All Nighter, which I do love. I can always trust it to last all day. Under my eyes I mixed the Urban Decay Naked Concealer with the Superdrug BB Eye Cream. To set everything, I used the Bare Minerals Hydrating Veil.
For bronzer, this is a night event, so too much bronzer seemed inappropriate. I therefore dusted a light layer of the Natural Collection SunTint Bronzing Powder, concentrating around my cheek area and down my neck.
As for blush, I used a slightly shimmery blush from Bare Minerals. This is their Ready Blush in The Beauty of Bliss. It is absolutely stunning.
Although the blush did give a very natural highlighted look, I wanted to go quite intense today. Therefore, I mixed two pinky highlighters together; Urban Decay’s Afterhour Highlighter in Firebird and the Primark PS Pure Glow Highlighter in Rose Prosecco.
Originally this was going to be my update to Elaine, but the shades ended up being much bluer than I had originally planned.
To start off, I took the shade MT020 from the Zoeva Matte Spectrum Palette as a base on my entire lid. Then as a transition shade I used MT030 in the crease. I wanted one shade down before going in with the blues.
In the crease, I slowly added small amounts of MT110 and MT120 into the crease to slowly build up the colour and not crease a harsh crease line. On the actual lid I used the shade MT100, blending the edges into the blues. I then mixed all of these shades along the lower lash line too, keeping this very soft.
And, since this is Starfall, I needed the look to sparkle. I took a generous amount of Urban Decay’s Moondust Eyeshadow in Solstice on a damp eyeshadow brush, and packed this onto the lid. I used a small amount of a dry blending brush to soften the edges slightly. In the inner corner I used a tiny amount of Urban Decay’s Polyester Bride eyeshadow.
For eyeliner, I drew a very thin line of the L’Oreal Ultra Precision Liquid Liner along my upper lash line before adding some mascara. For mascara I used Maybelline’s Spider Effect Mascara on both the upper and lower lashes.
To finish off the look, I wanted the lips to be a slight neutral plum-pink. If that is even a shade type!
I first lined my lips using the Body Shop Lip Definer. I have no idea what the name of this shade is, but it’s a plum colour. Over this I applied a light layer of the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Sao Paolo before topping it with a glittery lipgloss; Dior’s Lip Addict Gloss in Ultra Dior. This was such a beautiful combo!
And that is my finished Starfall makeup tutorial. I really hope that you have enjoyed this really long series of tutorials; I certainly enjoyed creating them. And even more so, I hope that it has inspired some of you to read the books; they truly are worth reading.
I hope that you all have a lovely day, and I’ll see you soon.
Bye for now!
