Welcome to the next installment of Avengers Wearable Makeup! Today we’re creating a look for the first Avenger, Captain America. This one is fairly straight forward but I’ll explain everything as I go with handy dandy pictures and words. Let’s go do our makeup!
First apply your foundation and concealer and contour as you would like, I do not contour simply because it’s kinda confusing.
Don’t forget to prime those beautiful eyeballs.
Next I will be taking a matte black eyeshadow and just doing the outer corners of my eyes.
This will create a more cat eye shape.
Next I will be using a darker blue right next to the black.
Now, while I have a lot of colors in this pallet…I don’t have red. It annoys the living daylights out of me, and instead I used Sally Beauty’s brand of baked eyeshadow.
It looks kind of rusty at first but it’s red I promise! I used a sponge applicator for this.
On to the last color!
I applied this color to the inner corner, you can apply these colors in any order you want I just advise that you place the darkest ones on the outside and the lightest on the inside. Something I’ve done in the past with this look is add a star or three on the curve of my eye socket, if you do this remember; Odd numbers are pleasing to the eye. And now we’ve got Captain America’s color palette!
Okay, all the colors are in place, on to eyeliner!
I use Avon’s Extend precision, pen liner, it works really well and stays all day, in Texas weather…which, lately, is saying something. I lined my eyes in a 40’s kind of style, a small rounded wing, but you can do it however you’d like.
Can you see it? *takes off glasses and squints* I can’t tell… either way, line your eyeballs, that’s what I’m trying to say here.
After the lining of the eyes, I moved on to my water line. I used two colors for this, black and a turquoise blue.
I used the black one on my actual waterline, I only did it about 1/4 of the way because it makes my eyes look bigger.
This is your waterline, and there’s right shark.
With the blue I went below my lower lash line and put a little wing on it, just a small one.
Almost done with the eyes, mascara is next
This is my crazy mascara, it looks scary but it is fantastic. Regardless, mascara those lashes.
Now flutter them a bit just because you can and that’s it for the eyes, on to the lips!
I highly recommend using a chapstick, Eos or something of the like before you put on any lipstick, this is the most red lipstick I’ve ever come across and I love it.
Look at how red it is! So very bright!
WE’RE DONE!! Go forth into the world and be Captain America!
