Jeffree Star Cosmetics is one of my favourite brands! Their liquid lipsticks have always been one of my favourite formulas and the quality of their eyeshadow is to die for! The shadows are super pigmented and very easy to work with as they are very blendable. Jeffree told, that the Androgyny Palette was his version of a neutral palette which I think is very inspiring as it will make you think different and create more colourful makeup looks. Keep on reading to learn how I made this red makeup look using the Androgyny Palette!
Before I start applying any eyeshadow I will apply my eyeshadow primer, the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and set it with translucent powder. As the first step, I will apply the shade Safe Word from the Androgyny Palette into my crease using the Deluxe Crease Brush from Real Techniques. Next, I will lay down some of the shadow Fetish in my crease with the Shading Brush from Real Techniques. I will then softly blend out Fetish using the Deluxe Crease Brush again.
To make sure you keep the shape you want for your eyeshadow, you can apply some translucent powder on your browbone and around the eye. With this technique, you will be sure that the area around your eyeshadow stays clean and shadow-free! Here I actually use baby powder and apply it with the Large Shader Brush from Luxie.
Next, I will apply the white shadow Snow Bunny from Coastal Scents to 3/4 of my lid with the Shading Brush. This shadow is not so pigmented so you will need to reapply it a couple of times to get the payoff you want. While applying Snow Bunny to the lid you want to make sure that the red shade, Fetish, stays strong in the crease. If the shade fades a bit then put the tiniest amount onto your brush, I used the Base Shadow Brush from Real Techniques, and blend it softly into your crease.
To give the eye some more dimension we want to darken the outer V of the eye. I used the shade Dominatrix on the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. You want to apply the white shadow first so the dark shade will blend easier into the light shade which will give a beautiful gradient effect. If you apply the darker shade in the outer V first then it will be harder to blend out and get that seamless effect we want.
If you have applied the translucent powder around your eye, then now is the time to remove it. I use the same brush to remove it as I applied it with – the Large Shader Brush. I softly remove it with circular motions which will make sure that the edges of the eyeshadow look soft and blended. Then I will dip into Fetish again with the Pointed Blender Brush (make sure your brushes are clean every time you dip into a new shade) and softly buff it under my lower waterline. Make sure to use a light hand.
Now apply your brows, lashes, browbone- and inner corner highlight. I used the Tony Moly Auto Eye Brow in the shade Brown for my brows. I curled my lashes with the Eylure London Heated Eyelash Curler and applied a coat of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. For my browbone and inner corner highlight, I used the shade White Sand from the Glow Kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills and applied it with the Pointed Detail Brush from Coastal Scents. For my lips, I used the Limecrime Matte Velvetines in the shade Buffy.
