Hey, strangers! This is my first makeup post in awhile, and I’m excited to jump back into it with a classic look inspired by some handmade guitar pick earrings from a rad local designer. I received these Gemagery earrings, made by the lovely Pati Currie, in my very first BatBox (a new Austin-themed subscription box), and immediately I knew exactly what to wear with them.
My lipstick is OCC Lip Tar in NSFW with NYX lip liner in Hot Red. On my eyes, I kept it clean and classy with a navy blue cat-eye. Instead of the usual black liquid liner, I used LORAC gel liner in Navy.
I chose a bold brow, enhanced with Anastasia Beverly Hills powder duo in Caramel, applied with an angled brush. On my face is Sephora liquid foundation, Bare Minerals Mineral Veil, and NARS blush in Orgasm. I used e.l.f. blush and contouring kit to emphasize my natural bone structure. (For tips on how to do this, search YouTube for contouring makeup technique. There are some amazing makeup artists specializing in this!)
