'Solar Orbit' Look

'Solar Orbit' Look

I am always inspired by creative work and my darling Nireyna and her students never cease to amaze me. Here's the INSPIRATION. I went really over-the-top with this one! And it took 45 minutes to complete! But I did figure out an simpler way to do the I always try to do since it makes it easier to recreate and do tutorials. After all we are not all artists or super talented with a brush.

I started off with Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (creamy beige) all over my lid and into the crease as my primary base - Sigma P82 Precision Round Brush. 

On the browbone area and crease I used MAC Wild By Nature Eyeshadow (matte camel). NARS 01 Eye Shader Brush
Then on the outer lid and crease I applied MUFE #92 Eyeshadow (matte brilliant purple). Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush & MAC 242 Small Shader Brush
I also applied MUFE #92 Eyeshadow (matte brilliant purple) on the inner crease line. MAC 242 Small Shader Brush
On the inner lid I applied MUFE #75 Eyeshadow (matte bright fuchsia pink). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush & MAC 242 Small Shader Brush
For the middle of the lid I applied Sugarpill Buttercupcake Eyeshadow (matte vivid yellow). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush & MAC 242 Small Shader Brush
Next to the purple on the outer lid I applied NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk (matte white) and Sugarpill Tako Eyeshadow (matte white). MAC 242 Small Shader Brush
For highlight I used Bare Escentuals Clear Radiance All Over Face Color (shimmery light pink). MAC 252 Large Shader Brush
On the lower lashline I used Bourjois Metallic Eyeliner in Bleu Clinquant 54 (shimmery bright blue).

NOTE: I used the MAC 242 Small Shader Brush to create the sharp defined crease line for each color.  

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Cozzette Eyebrow/Mini Shader D230 Brush/Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Crème Eyeliner in BlackMAC 263 Small Angle Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. MAC 212 Flat Definer Brush
I used L'Oreal Carbon Black Voluminous Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Sense Erotica Eyelashes for effect. Duo Eyelash Adhesive

For my lips I used MUFE #31 Rouge Artist Lipstick (creamy purple pink) topped with MAC Lavender Wind Lipglass (creamy lavender).

I primed my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion and Inglot Under Makeup Base - hands. I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45- Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Dark - face puff.

I used MUFE #12 Full Cover Concealer - Cozzette P350 Cylinder Concealer Brush - under my eyes set with MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Medium Deep - face puff

I used MAC Dollymix Blush (shimmery candy pink) for my cheeks - Cozzette Contour Stylist S135 Brush - and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour - Cozzette Contour Stylist S135 Brush.
