Electric Violet Eyes and Contouring

It’s time! Your everyday, easy-to-use all in one, contour and highlighting foundation is available today! Use Maskcara’s IIID foundation to achieve this look.vivianmakeupartist_highlight_contourShailey has the most feminine and dainty features, so much prettiness.Before_sideTo achieve this look start by applying the contour color (Here I used Stone) of your foundation to your forehead, under your cheekbones, and along the side of your nose using the larger side of the dual-ended brush by Maskcara (I used the brush by It cosmetics because the other brush had not been released yet.)Step1_contourYou can blend with the same brush or with a beauty blender sponge (get it damp before using it.) I used the beauty blender because I was blending the IIID foundation into another foundation to achieve full coverage for Shailey’s family photos. Yes! You can use the IIID foundation alone for sheer to medium coverage or with another foundation for full coverage. Step2_blendWith the smaller end of the brush apply your highlight shade (here I used Sunlit.) This will go down the center of your nose, upper cheekbones, center of forehead and basically anywhere else you feel you need the coverage. Blend blend blend!Step3_highlightThere you go! Everyday contouring, quick and easy. (Sorry about not getting individual photos of the blush and illuminator, which adds the finishing touch to this complexion.  Shailey’s little ones had reached their limit for watching their mama get her makeup done! Understandably! So I quickly finished up. I was impressed they lasted as long as they did!) Blush color is called Pink Grapefruit and illuminator is Pearl.violetshadowThe rest of the details:

    Was wondering what color/brand of foundation you used along with the IIID? For the fuller coverage! Thank you

    Thanks for this great how-to! The IIID makeup really refines Shailey’s natural beauty.

    Yay, I ordered my IIID makeup the night it was re-released! I’m so excited and LOVE seeing another option to gain more coverage when needed!! Thanks : )

    Love how you made the electric colors more ‘everyday’ friendly. Beautiful job. Thanks for sharing!

    I so hate to say this, but I feel like she could use a make-under after the second pic. She is a no-doubt gorgeous girl even with no makeup. I think I prefer the “girl next door” look she had before. She looks a bit like a “fake” person (like an online customer service rep icon) afterward – the shape of her eyes and nose is completely altered (again, to your credit, you have excellent technique to do that!). And as the commenter above mentioned, it’s cool how you used very bold colors but in the end they don’t look outlandish.

      I agree! She is so gorgeous without any makeup on at all!

      I think it was the shape of her mouth being overdrawn that threw me off a wee bit. Beautiful woman, beautiful makeup!
