makeup tutorial: princess

My grandad passed away last night, and I thought today I would do something with my makeup that reminded me of him. He used to call me "princess", I don't know why, but it kind of stuck, so I thought I'd do a "princess-y" look :)

Products used:
Revlon Creme Shadows (cream base)
Profusion Palette (light gold shadow)
Revlon Quad in Coffee Bean (highlight cream color)
Coastal Scents 88 Original palette (gold, brown, deep pink, plum-brown)
wet n wild dark brown eyeliner
Covergirl All-in-One mascara in black
Covergirl LashBast Fusion mascara in black
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake
Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Icy Nude

step 1: prime your lids

step 2: pat a gold shadow on your inner corners/tear duct area

step 3: apply a light cream-colored shadow all over your lid

step 4: sweep a deep pink color into your crease and outer corner

step 5: with a light hand, take a dark brown/plum/red color and pat it into your very outer corner (if you happen to have the Urdban Decay Original Naked palette "Hustle" would be great for this!)

step 6: with the same brown/plum/red color, line the outer half of your upper lids. With the remaining shadow on the brush, apply it to the outer third of your lower lids

step 7: Line your waterline with a brown liner

step 8: apply several coats of your favorite black mascara to your upper and lower lashes.

step 9: finish off with a pinky-nude lip color and put a gloss on top.
