Aria inspired FotD

The other day when I was doing my eye make-up, I realised once I was done it reminded me a little of Aria's eye looks from Pretty Little Liars. So today, I decided to try and extend it into a full-face Aria-inspired look. And, of course, I took pictures! ^^

This scary thing is a "before" photo of my fresh-from-shower face without any make-up on. Eep! As you can see, there's plenty of spots, redness, dark-ish circles etc. while Aria always has annoyingly flawless skin, so let's get that fixed first.

I used:

  • Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid foundation in 004 Light Porcelain, applied with a flat top kabuki brush by Everyday Minerals.
  • Everyday Minerals Multi-Intensive concealer, applied with a round top kabuki brush also by EM.
  • Everyday Minerals Finishing Dust to set and mattify, applied with the same round top kabuki.

Aria also has very well-defined, immaculately shaped brows. Above is what my own brows looked like yesterday evening, after not having been touched up in about a week. Pluck out any stray hairs until you get the shape you desire (you may want to do this the night before, to avoid any redness) and fill in your brows using eyebrow powder (or just regular eyeshadow) or an eyebrow pencil.

I used:

  • The dark brown eyeshadow from the Sleek Storm palette, applied with an angular liner brush (some cheap made-in-China brandless thing off eBay). This colour is a little dark on me, but the light brown from the same palette was a little too light, and I was too lazy to go look for something else. ;)
  • The light beige eyeshadow from the Sleek Bohemian palette, applied with the Everyday eyeshadow brush by Everyday Minerals, to highlight under brows and further define shape.
  • Everyday Minerals blush in Memphis Rose, applied with a kabuki jr. brush by EM. No, this has nothing to do with brows, but I wasn't gonna make a separate step for it. :P

The eye look was done using the Sleek Bohemian palette only, instead of mixing & matching Sleek palettes like I do most mornings. Well, except for liner and mascara, obviously. I used:

  • The dark taupe (lower right corner) in the crease and blended upwards, using the dome blending brush by Everyday Minerals.
  • The sandy beige (lower left corner) all across eyelid, blended into the taupe, using an eyeshadow brush by Hema.
  • A little bit of the taupe in the outer corner of the lid, using the same brush.
  • A tiny bit of the black (upper right corner) right in the crease, using the same brush, then blended out using the dome blending brush with a little of the taupe colour on it.
  • The black on the lower lash line, both applied with and then smudged out using the smudge eye brush by Everyday Minerals.
  • Nothing on the waterlines to give the appearance of larger eyes. You could even apply a white/light skintone liner to your waterlines, but I don't have one.
  • Sleek Dip-it eyeliner in black on upper lash line.
  • A little bit of the black from the Bohemian palette on top of the liner, to set and soften, using a pencil brush by Hema.
  • Etos Xtra Volume mascara in black on lashes.

Finally, I applied a thin coat of Bourjois lipstick in 04 Rose Croisette to finish the look.

So, it's not meant to be a carbon copy/cosplay or anything, just an inspired FotD based on what I guess I consider Aria's signature look: light, flawless skin with rosy cheeks and lips, strong brows and big, subtly-smokey eyes. What do you think?
