Signature Liner, Go-to Nude Lips

Bonjour mes amis!! Today's post is showcasing a simple makeup look centered around creative eyeliner and nude lips. This maquillage may not be for every day, but it's not super dramatic either, so it's more of a concept, rather than an actual ready-to-wear look. As you know, I love to use my face as a canvas for makeup art, so this look is a work in progress :)) I'm trying to come up with my signature masterpiece haha... stay tuned!!

In the process of playing around with makeup and juxtaposing it to my features, I came up with what I think is a cool way to enhance my semi-Asian eyes. Everybody's eyes are different: mine have a small, barely there crease, hooded outer edges, epicanthic or epicanthal folds in the inner corners (typical in people of Asian descent), and are also quite asymmetrical. For the longest time, I hated the fact that my small lids prevented me from wearing dramatic eyeshadow looks like those girls with beautifully sunken eyes and loads of lid space. It wasn't until I started this blog that I found my niche and realized that working around my "challenging" features is actually quite interesting for a makeup artist--I get to be more creative with my techniques! Eh... no one's perfect, yet we're all unique, so finding out what works for us individually is, in fact, what one's signature style is all about.

To create this graphic eyeliner design with MY "signature" on it, I used the following products and application techniques:

    On the rest of my FACE, I'm wearing:
    • LIPS:
      • Maybelline lip polish in Baby Mauve-- you've seen me wear this one time and time again and I'm completely obsessed with it. It's my go-to "pale" lip gloss and I love it because it is completely opaque and lasts forever. The color is sort of like a "corpse bride" beige, but in a cool way :)) I used to think it was discontinued, but now I see it's back on amazon, so follow the link if you're interested in getting one :)))
    • FACE:

      Q: What are your unique facial traits and how do you 
      accentuate them with your signature makeup style?
