In order to keep up with the high resolution digital era, for the skin to maintain it's flawless look under the lens of high quality pictures, famous French cosmetics brand FLY UP BEAUTY COLOR developed an exclusive HD digital maintenance makeup line that is jointly recommended by makeup artists designated by the top A list stars and fashion magazine photographers. By combining with invisible pores technology and addition of luxurious skin care ingredients, along with support from a team of development consultants consisting of the best elites in the cosmetic and photography industry classy, this company integrated the concept of professional makeup, photography, optics, Soft Focus HD technology and several years of experience to create a series of products guaranteed to achieve top supermodel flawless skin! This company covers areas of expertise such as fashion shows, idol dramas, superstar concerts, movies and music videos and so on. Many entertainment fashion circles now specify the use of Fly Up Beauty Color's HD Foundation Series for their base makeup. It is known that their products are used frequently by the most famous professional makeup artist in China and Taiwan, Alice and Joan, who each have worked with top celebrities such as Fan BingBing (范冰冰), Annie Yi (伊能靜), Jay Chou (周杰倫), An Yi-Xuan (安以軒), Alice Tzeng (曾愷玹), Megan Lai (賴雅妍), Ivy Chen (陳意涵), Bianca Bai (白歆惠) and hundreds more. They are also designated makeup artists for the most popular TV dramas, music videos and commercials. They both stated that Fly Up Beauty Colors HD Foundation products are their top choice when it comes to appearing on the big screen which can now project flaws on the skin 6 times cleared and larger with the advanced technology of high definition TV.
After hearing so many incredible things about this company's products, I wanted to see they really work like a miracle as described so I decided to give Maggie, my long time friend since junior high, a makeover. I felt she was a perfect candidate for a 100% genuine review of their products since she's always had acne prone skin and related problems. Over the years, the amount of acne scars have accumulated which are incredibly hard to get rid of. She also has a combination type of skin with her T-Zone and nose area quite dry but everywhere else oily. She told me she never uses liquid/fluid foundation since they just make her skin look horrendous, but decided to give Fly Up Beauty Color's Foundation Set a try.
The HD Foundation Set comes with 4 products:
1. HD Foundation Primer
2. HD BB Makeup Base SPF25 PA+++
3. HD Liquid Foundation
4. HD Compact Powder which comes in 3 different shades. I will be using the lightest shade, F00.
Step 1. I applied the HD foundation primer on Maggie's face after she completed her usual skin care routine.
Step 3. Applied HD Liquid Foundation with the same foundation brush. Some of you may find it odd that this foundation is only available in one shade because I sure did. After I did some research, I found out this product is able to adjust its shade to match the person's skin tone. It sounded like bogus to me.
After pumping the foundation on the back of my hand, my heart sinked because it honestly looked so dark! I thought it would be too dark for Maggie's skin tone, let alone mine! But the miraculous thing was after I spread out the excess foundation on the back of my hand with the same brush, the shade began to match my hands skin tone!
Step 4. Apply Dior Shimmer Illuminating Powder on nose, forehead, chin and lower eyelids and shadowing the sides of the face with Nars Laguna Bronzing Powder. For details, please refer to my previous tutorials.
Step 5. Apply YSL Touche Eclat on lower eyelids. Draw a V shape then blend with fingers.
Step 6. Perfect the skin with Cle De Peau concealer using a concealer brush.
Step 7. Applied HD Compact Powder with the sponge given.
Step 8. Dab Etude House Baby Glow Stick and lightly tap on the bridge of the nose 3-4 times.
Step 9. I outlined Maggie's eyebrows with Kate Dual Ends Eyebrow Pencil in BR-1. I used a light shade for pencil because Maggie's brow shape was not done correctly and the eyebrows I want to achieve for this look are the kind seen on numerous Japanese magazine models and in Korean dramas which is thicker, flatter and lighter in color. I used the opposite end which is the powder to make the tip of her brows more natural. Go over any areas that's too light with Miss Hana Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown. We don't want her brows to look too light since her hair color is natural black. Finalize with Ettusais eyebrow mascara in light brown.
Step 10. Using the lightest shade from Integrate Eyebrow Palette BR731, shadow the nose to make it stand out more. Please refer to previous tutorial videos for detailed demonstration.
If you go back to the top and look at the Before picture, you will see that Maggie's eyes are not the same size. It is mostly due to the difference in size of her double eyelids. Also, her eyelid crease is not very visible so sometimes she looks like she only has single eyelid. As a result, without proper application, her eyes will look small, very droopy, making her appear tired all the time or her eyes will seem even more different in size if you use the wrong application method to fix this problem. I will teach you how to solve all those problems while making your eyes at east 1.5 larger with the Japan tear drop eye makeup and use of Miss Bow Bow double eyelid tape.
Items Used for Japan Tear Drop Eye Makeup:
- Nars Eye Shadow Primer
- Dolly Twinkle False Lash in BC18, B08 and TS19
- Miss BowBow False Lash in 560
- Lunasol Christmas 2012 Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette
- MSH Love Liquid Liner in Rich Black
- Japan DUP Eyelash Fixer Glue in Clear
- Miss Bow Bow Double Eyelid Tape Regular Type
Step 2. Apply "A" all over eyelids to brow bone.
Step 3. Apply "B" all over eyelids to natural crease.
Step 4. Using a crease blending brush (I am using the MAC 217), apply "C" 1/3 of the outer corner creating a V shape but do not go above the crease. We are not trying to create a cat eye look, this step is simply to get a more in depth eye socket. Blend inwards til shadows show a nice gradient color.
Step 5. Use the same dark shade and apply 1/3 of the outer corner of LOWER lash line.
Step 6. To achieve the very popular tear tank innocent look, apply D generously on the first 2/3 of lower eyelid blending with the outer 1/3 dark brown.
Step 7. Dip into E, then gently press on the first 2/3 of lower eyelids.
Step 8. Draw a very thin upper lash line with MSH Love Liquid Liner with a slight wing at the end.
Step 9. Apply Dolly Twinkle False Lashes in BC18 then layer BC08 on top of it.
Step 10. Cut Dolly Twinkle TS19 in single strands and Miss Bow Bow 560 into 6-7 parts. I do this to make lower false lashes look more natural.
Step 11. Starting at the inner corner where your pupil begins, start applying the shortest part from Miss Bow Bow 560. then work outwards. Do not leave spaces in between and the lashes should be longer as you move towards outer corner.
Step 12. Take the single strands from TS19 and apply 3-4 strands at the outer parts of lower lashes to create a more innocent look.
Step 13. Use the same MSH liquid liner, lightly line the upper half of inner corners. Do not over do it or eyes will look too harsh.
Step 14. Apply Miss Bow Bow double eyelid tape. I've gotten asked by a lot of my customers and readers on how to apply Miss Bow Bow eyelid tape since they are different from the usual tapes you see on the market and this is also a crucial step of this tutorial so I will be explaining with the help of detailed pictures.
Take out the glue and eyelid tapes but do not throw out the box since there's use for it later.
Wow! What a huge difference! No more droopy eyes or one larger than the other! Double eyelids are very visible yet natural looking =).
