Tutorial: Iconic

This look was suggested by Jowee at, on the Inspiration: Iconic post. She wanted to see a classic look on me, so here it is!

1. Apply foundation all over your face. (I used Mary Kay Sheer Foundation in 104 Ivory) A stippling brush might help, as the base needs to be completely even. Dust with powder to set. Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks in circling motions. Take a slight bronzer and circle it down the hollows of your cheeks.This will contour your face a bit.

Blush: MAC Summer Rose, Primer: UDPP in Eden
2. Rub primer potion in Eden all over your eye. This step will be different for everyone, as everyone has different preferences on eyeshadow. However, the classic form of makeup is known for natural eye makeup and cat eye-liner. I used the Naked palette by Urban Decay to create a natural eye:
Use Blackground by MAC to create a demure cat eye! Simply line the eye and flick the edges up at the corners. Apply mascara if you wish.
Finally, liner your lips with red liner. I also used MAC Viva Glam 1 to fill in lips.


  1. Oh that lipstick looks SO good on you!! I love a nice true red!
