I got my hands on this very lovely dark auburn wig, in a style that reminds me of girls in Non-no (very natural yet pretty). So I decided to try a soft earth-tone look with focus on naturally full-looking eyelashes. I think it turns out quite nicely! :)
Here are a couple of closeups to show you how it would look at the end:
I used this new Pupa eyeshadow which has very awesome metallic red-browns. I did not use primer for this look and the colors are already crazy bright!
Anyway let's get started! Put on a light foundation and concealer if needed. Do not use something heavy or too matte for this look as we are going for "natural" here.
Put a mid-brown shade all over your lids and a bit beyond your crease.
Add a darker brown over the mid-brown, stopping just under your crease and focusing the color in the outer corner.
Line your upper lashline with a black-brown eyeliner pencil, and color in your upper waterline if you like. Go over the eyeline with the darkest brown shadow in your palette. Also, put a very light application of the mid-brown (the first color you applied) along the outer half of your lower lashline as eyeliner.
Curl your lashes and apply plenty of mascara. Use a fine-toothed lash comb to separate each lash so it does not look clumpy.
Apply mascara to your lower lashes as well, and highlight the inner corners of your eyes with a shimmery light beige shade.
If you use false lashes, put on a pair that is thick but not too long. Here I am actually using two pairs of shorter criss-cross false lashes to get this full-lash effect. :)
EDIT: Here are the lashes:
Finally, color in your eyebrows, and put on the rest if your makeup.
I used an orange blush that has pink shimmers in it, and applied a lipgloss in a similar color.
Finally, put on your wig and outfit, and you are ready to head out! :D
I never noticed how large and prominent my nose is until I put on this wig with such thick bangs! XD
