Hello dolls!!! Last weekend I made a trip to Sephora and purchased the Make Up For Ever Flash Color Case. While it is a very expensive item, it was recommended to me (and my classmates) by my teacher at Make Up Designory. From what I have heard, it is a beauty product that “all makeup artists should have in their makeup kit” so I figured I would give it a try. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed in the least bit. This product is amazing!! It can be used for just about anything such as your foundation, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and lipstick! I even saw a YouTube blogger put it in their hair for a funky look, and it was pretty awesome. While this product is expensive, the fact that it is multi-use is fantastic. For about $100 dollars you have a product that you can use on your entire face! You just need to figure out how to mix the right colors, but once you got that down there is really no need to purchase a foundation, blush, eyeshadow, lipstick, etc. because you can mix and match the colors and create so many different shades; the possibilities are endless!! Here is one big tip for anyone using this product. After applying it, you MUST use powder. If you don’t, the product will slide and end up all over your face. I used this as an eyeliner and made sure to put a loose powder on top, because when I didn’t the eyeliner ended up creasing and getting everywhere. Just remember to powder!!
Face- I first applied Smashbox Photo Finish Light Foundation Primer, followed by Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation in 5.5. I then contoured my face using the Make Up For Ever Flash Color Case. To highlight I mixed the white and peach with a hint of yellow (the peach because I wanted to keep the color warm and the yellow because my undertone is more olive) and to shadow I mixed the brown and white, but if you are doing this on yourself mix whatever colors work best for your undertone and skin tone. For blush I used just the peach from the Make Up For Ever Color Case. I used Copacabana by Nars as my illuminator above cheeks, on my nose, and forehead.
Eyes- I used Urban Decay Primer Potion to prime my eyelids. I highlighted my brow bone with Albatross by Nars, and also used this in the corner of my eyelid by the tear duct and on my entire eyelid, but I mixed Albatross with a hint of Half Baked from my Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay. In my crease I applied Tease from the Naked 2 Palette and blended it up. I applied Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil Noir to my bottom waterline and applied black AMC Gel Liner #77 from Inglot Cosmetics to my upper lash line. On my bottom lash line I applied a mixture of both the light and dark blue from the Make Up For Ever Flash Color Case. I then curled my lashes with my Billy B Beauty’s Eyelash Curler and applied Tarte MultiplEYE-prime followed by Lights, Camera, Flashes by Tarte. I used the amazing Brow Bar To Go by Whitening Lightning on my eyebrows, followed by Make Up For Ever Brow Seal to keep brows in place and keep the color on.
Lips- I applied Heroine by M.A.C. Cosmetics and mixed it with the Fuchsia from the Make Up For Ever Flash Color Case. In the center of my upper and bottom lip I applied Lovecraft Lip Tar by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.
