F(x) "Rum Pum Pum" Inspired Makeup Tutorial - Amber!

Good afternoon lovelies. Today I won't be reviewing anything, hope you're not mad. :3 My good friend Misa asked me if I would like to join her & 3 other bloggers on doing a makeup collaboration on F(x)'s new single "Rum Pum Pum". The sound of this song is so different, but I really enjoy it! 

Before getting into the tutorial, let me introduce you to the ladies I collaborated with!

Amber - Myself

I was super excited to get to do Amber's makeup. It was quite simple besides her awesome gem eyebrow! She's my favorite from the group, so when Misa approached me saying she needed someone to do Amber's makeup, I jumped to the opportunity! 

Let's get started!

For the base I used Holika Holika's Miracle Real Skin Finish to brighten up my complexion. Amber's face is much brighter & whiter than mine, so using a base helped out.

Then for foundation/BB cream, I paired the base with Holika Holika's Aqua Petit Jelly BB cream, my go to BB cream.

My cheeks are so red ^^;

For shadowing, I used a bronzer & bronzing brush from elf cosmetics. Amber has a much smaller face than I & it looked as if she had some shadowing along her cheekbones. I also used this to contour my nose to make the bridge smaller.

I wasn't completely done with the face, but I moved on to focus on the eyes a little more.

Moving onto my eyes:

I primed my lids using a free sample of Stila's Prime Pot. I'm not sure of the shade since the name faded off long ago, but it's a nude base.

For an all over wash of color, like Amber had, I used Jemma Kidd - Vogue all over my lids & brow bone. It's a really shimmery, champagne color.

Then, using my Naked 2 Palette from Urban Decay with the eyeshadow brush included:

I used Bootycall all over my lids, then I took Tease & swiped that near my lash line, as Amber's makeup seems to be much darker near her lash line.

Lining my eyes, I took a charcoal color from Buxom & lined my eyes, winging it at the end. Immediately after, I used Blackout on the outer edge of the winged eyeliner & made it appear more gradient. Amber's eyeliner looked amazing & had a wonderful gradient going on. I then took Verve & applied that to my lash line as well to make the liner a more vibrant charcoal color.

I also applied YDK to the outer half of my lower lash line & Bootycall to the inner. Then, with the smaller side of the Urban Decay brush, I applied Blackout to my upper & lower waterline since I don't own any cream, gel, or pencil liners. Once done with the eyes, I put in my Circle Lenses. These are Misty Night - Brown from BeautyLenses.

I didn't have to use any mascara on my lashes. Amber's eyelashes looked as if they didn't have any mascara on them, so I didn't put any on, but you're more than welcome to if you would like. I had some clean up to do, so once I did so, I highlighted my face using Benefit's Up-Light.

Onto the lips:

The lips were quite easy to do. Amber's lips are a very light shade of pink. I used Etude House's Fresh Cherry Tint in the pink shade & Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in the peach shade followed by putting a little of the BB cream on the edges of my lips to make it more gradient like.

Now here's the most time consuming part!

Amber dons a crystal eyebrow in the video. I was thrilled to tackle this. I can tell you it took a lot of patience & lash glue, but the outcome was SOO worth it! She had a more colorful eyebrow, but I only had one color. Still managed to work for me. I used two different sizes of gems. You may use whatever sizes/colors you'd like!

The finished look!

Selfie Spam!

This look was so much fun to do. It took me awhile to perfect it, but I'm happy with the results. I hope I get to do another collaboration for makeup inspired tutorials again. This was so much fun! Many thanks to Misa for the awesome opportunity. Please check out the other looks as well. These ladies did an amazing job!
