Tanny Mosley

 

 

Tanny Mosley, Bombgirl Beauty Blogger, gives us selfie goals with the UnderPaint Method. With smokey eyes, flawless skin, and a poppin’ highlight, this look will achieve maximum slay and confidence.

To start Mosley primes her face with the MILK Makeup Blur Stick to create a smooth canvas for the makeup ahead.  Now onto the Underpaint Method; this can get complicated, but fun so get ready to bring out your inner child. For the first layer she uses the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit in the shade medium. Using a flat concealer brush, she applies the shade Banana, a highlight with yellow undertones, from the sides of her nose to under her eyes, under the ear to her upper lip, the center of her forehead, and the bridge and tip of her nose. The remaining areas on her face are contoured with the cream formulated Cover FX Cover Click Concealer Stick in the shade N110. After this is blended, she combines the Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Foundation in Fawn Deep and NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Gleam to create a full coverage, glowing top layer. This is applied on top of the first layer and all of the products are blended with a Real Techniques sponge. Make sure to blend, not smear, the highlight and contour to ensure a smooth, flawless finish. To set her face makeup she then takes the Sacha Buttercup Setting Powder, a product which combats white flashes and keeps the skin matte.

Now onto the fun part: the smokey eyes. Using the Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette she starts with the shade Whiskey, a matte brown, and takes that from the outer corner to the crease with the larger end of the platte brush.This method creates definition. Then she applies Smolder, a shimmery plum color, across the lid to create a fierce look. To highlight the brown bone she used the shade Combust. To make the eyes bolder she applies EyLure Definition Lashes in #126 on her top lashes, the Maybelline Big Shot Mascara in Brown/Black, and for her waterline, a black eyeliner from Mac and the shade Whiskey.

Finishing the face makeup she applies the Becca Glow On The Go Set in Opal on the key highlighting points and blends that out with a dense stippling brush.To complete the look, she line she lines her lips with the MAC Lip Liner in Cork. Here’s the best part: to fill in the lips she uses the concealer stick used to contour as a lipstick. Who says makeup can’t be inventive. Last she uses the MAC Mineralize Charged Water Sting Hydrating Mist and NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray to set everything.

Now you’re picture perfect and ready to have a Kardashian selfie moment.

Look out for more Bombshell worthy looks on her YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter.
