In a makeup tutorial that was posted to Youtube, celebrity fashion vlogger Wengie, explains how to achieve a cute makeup look and a sexy makeup look. There are quite a bit of difference between the two looks so she breaks it down step by step.
For the cute look, she uses a powder foundation so that she can keep the look soft rather than defined. She also uses neutral brownish and pink tones on the eyelid. For definition, she traces the eyelash line with a liner pen and then extends the line just slightly. She applied her base eye shadow color to the underneath of the lower lash line and blended. Then she curled her lashes slightly and added very thin false eyelashes that are longer in the middle. For the lips, she blended her lip line with foundation and then dabbed a pink lip tint in the middle and spread with her fingertips. She dabbed a bit of gloss in the center for dimension. On her cheeks, she spreads a lilac color creme blush high on the cheekbones for a youthful look.
For her sexy look, she uses a high coverage foundation for even coverage. Then she contours her face paying special attention to the angles of her face. She uses a smoky eye pen to make the lids dramatic. Wengie adds more definition with liquid eyeliner but blends with the smoky eye pen. She adds dramatic false lashes that are longer at the eye’s edge. Then she applies a neutral base color above the smoky color and blends. She also places a sparkly light color to the inside corners of the eye to open them up more. She applied concealer to her lower eye area and her nose, forehead, and bridge of her nose. She used a peachy bronze color on her cheekbones to match her contouring. For her lips, she uses a matte in a deep neutral pink color to add definition without being too bold.
She easily creates these simple looks that can be worn for day and night. She is also able to help her audience distinguish the difference between a cute look and a sexy look. She encourages her viewers to tweak the look so that it will better match their own features.
