TUTORIAL: YSL Nails Inspired!

Today I got home from work and decided I wanted to do a look.  I couldn't think of anything I was nuts to do, and since my requests document is on my dead computer, I grabbed April's issue of Glamour and flipped through it.  I found an image for YSL fingernail polish, and fell in love with the combination of a cool green, an orange, a cool pink, and black.

The supplies:

+ Madd Style Cosmetix pigments in Birfday Suit, Mushroom Jazz, Bang! Bang! and Frankenstein [V, CF]
+ NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
+ Blinc Mascara [V, CF]
+ Lancome Le Curler
+ Madd Style Cosmetix Fireworks lip bomb [V, CF]
+ Shiro Cosmetics Forty Cakes Intertube [V, CF]

Not pictured:
+ Korres Anti-aging Eye Primer
+ Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero [V, CF]
+ ELF Contour Brush
+ ELF Concealer Brush
+ Sedona Lace #305  Brush
+ Crown #C407 Jumbo Shadow Brush

Gather your supplies and meet me after the jump...

Start off with your eye primed and apply the NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil in Milk, and blend it out with your finger.

Using a crease/contour/pencil brush, apply Mushroom Jazz to the inner corner and inner third of the lid.

Using a dense, flat brush, apply Bang! Bang!, starting in the center of the eye, blending it over the edges of Mushroom Jazz, and out towards the outer third.

Using another flat brush, apply Frankenstein to the outer third (blending it over Bang! Bang!) and up into the crease.

Blend out the top of Frankenstein by applying Birday Suit, starting just below the brow and pulling the color down into Frankenstein.

Apply liner, curl your lashes, and apply your favorite vegan mascara.

Apply MSC's Fireworks lip bomb to hydrate your lips.  Over top of that, use a lip brush to apply Shiro Cosmetics' intertube in Forty Cakes.

And you're done!

FTC:  I purchased everything in this tutorial except the Korres primer is a sample, the Blinc mascara was a gift, and the Le Curler came from work.  I model for MSC.  No one asked me or paid me to do this; I used these products because I like them.
