Michelle Phan Inspired Look

HPIM3918eeeWhoever said Halloween is only for gore-ish, bloody, scary characters? You can definitely dress up as your favorite anything! I’ve been getting requests on doing a tutorial inspired by Michelle Phan… So here it is!img_7121_michelle-phan-lookMichelle Phan, as we all know, always channels this fresh & radiant look. From the numerous makeup looks she taught the world, I drew inspiration from her look in this video that Promise made for her a couple of months back. I just basically followed what Promise did sans contouring around the eye area.

As usual, I skipped the concealing, foundation, and brow routine in the video to save time. Although I promise to put up an updated version of those three for the sake of those who still want to watch the process.

Products I used for the face & brows:

  1. The LuLu Makeup Concealer in Light
  2. Revlon PhotoReady Makeup in Medium Beige
  3. Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Shine Free Cake Powder in 04 Honey
  4. Easy Brow Pencil in #1 from Etude House

Now here are the steps to achieve an ala-Michelle Phan look:

  1. Take any brownish mauve eyeshadow and apply this on the crease area. This will give more depth to your eyes. *Nichido Stardust Palette in Totally Neutral*
  2. Take any highlight color and highlight the brow bone. *ELF Smoky Eye Quad (white)*
  3. Load up your brush with white+silver eyeshadow and apply on the bare area on the lids. *ELF Smoky Eye Quad (white & silver)*
  4. Line your lower waterline with white eye pencil. *NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk*
  5. Line your eyes using a liquid or gel liner. Create a subtle tail. *Fanny Serrano Long Wear Gel Liner in Black*
  6. Curl your lashes & apply mascara on top & bottom lashes. *ELF Mechanical Lash Curler + Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara in Black*
  7. Apply demi lashes (half lashes).
  8. Contour nose bridge. *Fanny Serrano 2-Way Cake in Rajah*
  9. Apply blush. *The Body Shop Roseflower Blush*
  10. Apply a red lip color & blend. *CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipstick in Hot Passion*

There you have it, ladies. Those are the 10 simple steps on how to achieve that radiant Michelle Phan look.
