Bursting with Pride - Step by Step - Kate Valentine

Hello all and welcome to my first blog post in collaboration with the marvellous Red Carpet FX! 

With August hosting what would have been Manchester Pride (cheers, covid 🙄), I wanted to create a fun and relatively simple rainbow makeup to celebrate! 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈

Check out the step by step process below to see how I created this look 👇🏼

 

 1. I started by blocking out my brows with Kryolan Eyebrow Plastic. I then covered them with Kryolan Ultra Foundation and setting with a translucent powder. I also popped on foundation and concealer to even out my complexion.

 

Products used in this step:

- Kryolan Eyebrow Plastic

- Kryolan Ultra Foundation

- Ben Nye Neutral Set Powder

2. Next I used the LaRoc Pro Chocolate Box Eyeshadow Palette for blush and highlight (shades "Toasted" & "Bittersweet"); while using a soft brown make-up pencil to add freckles.

 

Products used in this step:

- LaRoc Pro Chocolate Box Palette

- Grimas Brown Make-up Pencil

3. I then used the Diamond FX Flabbergasted Split Cake to add a rainbow stripe from the top of the eyelid, over the brows to the hair line, using a wide flat brush.

Products used in this step:

- Diamond FX Split Cake One-stroke - Flabbergasted

- WRATH Mixing Liquid (optional)

- Royal & Langnickel Majestic - 3/4" Flat Brush

4. After that I created a black smokey eye using a black gel liner paired with "Choc Chip" & "Creamy" from the Chocolate Box Palette I used earlier. Fading up into the rainbow paint.

Products used in this step:

- Kryolan HD Cream Liner - Black

- LaRoc Pro Chocolate Box Palette

5. I then added Smiffy's Self-adhesive Clear Gems to the rainbow paint.

Products used in this step:

- Smiffys Make-up FX Clear Face Gems

- Kryolan Mastix Spirit Gum (optional)

6. To finish, I used the same rainbow technique down the bottom lip and neck (with gems!) And accentuated my lips with a black matte lipstick.

Products used in this step:

- Diamond FX Split Cake One-stroke - Flabbergasted

- Royal & Langnickel Majestic - 3/4" Flat Brush

- Ben Nye Pro Lipstick - Black

- Smiffys Make-up FX Clear Face Gems


Voila!
