Bold Cirque Du Soleil Inspired Look

Creating this look was so much fun. I was able to mix and match colors that are not generally used in my everyday looks.

Follow these simple steps to create this Cirque Du Soleil inspired look.

1. Moisturize your face
note: its important to let each "layer" you apply to your face or eyes dry before moving to the next step. This especially goes for moisturizers and primers

2.Apply facial primer

3.Apply foundation

4. Contour the hollows of your cheeks, along the hair and jawline, down the sides of the nose and in the temples with a cream contour like this one (my fave)

5.Fill in and sculpt brows

6. Apply primer to eye lids

7. Using apply a matte orange shade to the crease

8. Dab a flat brush lightly into black and then into a fuchsia shade. Apply to the lid

9. Apply a shimmery wine shade to the inner crease just above the fuchsia shade

10. Use a dark burgundy shade on the outer V of your eye and a smudge a little along the lower lashline

11. Dab a gold shimmer cream shadow to the center of the lid

12. Apply black liner to lid

13. Apply false lashes

14. Use a nude liner on waterline

15. Line under the lower lashline with gold

16. Apply mascara to marry your natural lashes with your falsies

17. Use concealer or foundation on your lips

18. Apply a dark magenta/purple shade to your lips for a bolder look or add a pink tones to the center to downplay the bold look

19. With a large blush brush, add a small amount of blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend into your contour

Your look is complete!
