Midweek Makeup Tutorial


A little while ago, I asked for your feedback on my facebook and the results were overwhelmingly in favor of recreating a Dior runway look. Always up for all out drag queen makeup, I was thrilled with the choice. I did my own version, exclusively using Make Up For Ever products, for a special post on Refinery29. There are more pictures behind the cut, but you have to click here to see the full tutorial and what I used. Make sure to check out the other bloggers' tutorials and picks!

  20. wow, this is a great look. I have to say you look so great with this big eye makeup, you can pull it off all day, not just as a night out make up. I think you look amazing and I especially love that lip color!

  21. I love this tutorial. Btw I also love the color of your hair, is it natural or did you dye it a certain color? Ive been wanting to get my hair color done recently and I just love your color.

  35. Anonymous: Like a DRAG QUEEN, not a clown. And I'd say it's better than looking like death, don't you think? Do you mean to tell me you go out sounding like such a jerk?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Cati: Thank you! It's kind of funny to say this, but the top half of my hair is my natural color and the rest is darker because I used to dye it regularly and then stopped about a year or so ago!

    ReplyDelete
  37. styleatelier: Awwww you made my day. I tend to agree with anonymous that I look like death without makeup, but that's just us. haha

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thank you all for the great feedback and I promise I will do hair tutorials! I just need assistance - I can't photograph it myself for some reason.

    ReplyDelete

  46. People are just haters, Keiko. You're fabulous and the make-up is abosolutely stunning and flawless! I, myself, look at make-up as an art form and not as looking like a clown. So, anonymous has no idea what they're talking about and apparently, has nothing better to do.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Stunning! I love your hairstyle in the first photo and I can't wait to see a tutorial. I was thinking your hair has been looking really natural lately, it's the perfect shade! I want to punch anonymous in the eye..one of my favorite things is when you respond back to the meanie comments haha

    You're a gorgeous person inside and out..even before the glam makeup!

  57. I have an irrational fear of putting my makeup anywhere other than my lid. It always seems odd to me! What can I do to get over this? Is this normal?
