Overnight Curls and Makeup

This look focuses on the hair and makeup. I will add what clothes I am wearing that are visible in the second photo. I am wearing a brown Antelope leather jacket over a blue and red plaid flannel, then under a creme colored tank top. My curls are overnight curls from twisted buns. I have started adding this to my routine, normally I braid my hair into two braids to create waves, but doing twisted braid buns creates actual curls. I sleep with the buns overnight and take them out in the morning. Leave a comment if you want a video or tutorial for the overnight curls I am wearing.


Overnight Curls and me before I did my makeup lol


Overnight Curls and Warm Smokey Eye


image  The makeup look creates a warm colored matte lid with a bit of sheen in the inner corner. I used my Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette. In the palette there are three sets of shadows, cools, neutrals and warms, I used the warms and cools which may seem odd but it works. I started with the shade Ludwin as my blending, transition shade in the crease. I used Lazarus and Succubus to build and define the crease and blending it onto the lid to transition nicely. Then I used a cool toned purple taupe in the outer corner blending it into the crease. For the defining shade I used Sytry from the Kat Von D palette. From the Pixi by Petra palette I just took the shimmery white shade and added that to the inner lid and corner and to highlight the brow bone. To finish the eye look I did a black winged liner and mascara. For the face I did my usual routine for contouring, foundation which I mixed, highlighting and blush.
