FFF: Copper-Green Cut Crease makeup look - collaboration!

Friday 29 March 2013

This weeks FFF is a special one as it's also a collaboration with another MUA blogger - Sanna of Look A Million.

I discovered Sanna on Instagram and loved her creativity and flair! There's a ton of makeup artists on Instagram and online in general, but only a handful actually wow me and Sanna has to be one of them. 
"I am a self-taught freelance makeup artist, blogger, student and upcoming YouTuber based in West Yorkshire. Makeup is my passion and I have been practising from a very young age! I love to create a range of different looks from simple, elegant, dramatic and theatre. I love the creative side of makeup as makeup lets you be whoever you want and can change your appearance drastically (which is the fun bit). I love to explore different genres and themes. 
My favourite all time makeup brand has to be Illamasqua- their products are so pigmented which means I use less of it! I also love Sleek makeup. I look forward to making tutorials on YouTube and sharing how I achieve my looks." 

Seeing as I've never done this before, it's probably best to mention what exactly is involved. We decided on a Copper/Bronze and Green theme (with glitter) and challenged eachother to make a look with this theme. I was excited to find out what Sanna would use where, or if we'd end up with something similar, which we did in the end - great minds eh?
Here's the look I created with a full list of what was used:

Products used:
> UD Smoked Palette - Kinky, Freestyle, Backdoor, Blackout, Loaded
> MAC Copper Sparkle pigment
> UD Perversion, Covet & Flipside 24/7 eye pencils
> NYC black liquid liner
> Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet mascara 
> UD 24/7 concealer - ATF
> Khuraira ACC in Light   
> Hourglass Veil Fluid - 4 Beige (sample)
> Ben Nye Banana powder
> Sleek Contour Kit - Medium (matte contour only)
> UD Flushed palette - highlighter only
> MAC Mocha lipstick (Surf Baby collection)

After priming the eye as usual with UDPP, I used an angled liner brush to mark out the cut crease with UD Blackout eyeshadow. I then used a tapered blending brush to lightly add Blackout above the crease and blended upwards. I did the same with Backdoor, to intensify the smokiness. Kinky was then applied to the browbone, followed by Freestyle in between it and Blackout/Backdoor. I made sure to blend well and go back with either Blackout or Freestyle as needed above the crease.
I then used Loaded eyeshadow on the bottom lash line, followed by Covet & Flipside eye pencils on top, blended with a small angled brush into a point on the inner corner, and a split liner look on the outer corner. I then lined the eye with Perversion eye pencil and used NYC black liquid liner to finish lining the top eyelid, also creating a point on the inner corner. I filled in the gap between the outer corner lines with UD 24/7 concealer in ATF.
After concealing under the eye with Khuraira ACC, I coated the lashes with Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet Mascara and filled in the brows with Backdoor and Blackout eyeshadows from the same Smoked palette.

For the rest of the face, I used a sample of the Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in 4- Beige all over the face and used Ben Nye Banana powder under the eyes and on areas needed. I then contoured with the Sleek Medium Contour Kit and highlighted from the UD Flushed palette.
On the lips I used MAC Mocha lipstick, mixed with a tiny bit of UD 24/7 concealer in ATF.

Here's Sanna's final look too:
I loved her use of green above the crease and pairing it with a nude lip, which looks awesome!
You can find out what products she used on her blog (Look A Million) and be sure to follow her on Instagram and Facebook too for more amazing looks.

    Love this look, I need to inject a bit of copper into my life, sadly I do not own a copper eyeshadow. Can't wait to re-create this look myself, it'll probably look botched though, ha!
