The latest beauty craze taking over social media is creating a “lifted” effect on your face just using makeup—no needles necessary! Here makeup artist Camille Thompson shows us how to shade, highlight and blend (remember: up and out!) your makeup the right way to get that good lift.
Watch Camille apply her go-to Maybelline products for the perfect "lifted" effect.
Apply a matte foundation. Pick your most natural shade, and blend it into moisturized skin, pressing in color with a foundation brush or makeup sponge.
Apply a light pink eyeshadow. Blend the color all over the lids and apply a little bit above the eyelid crease.
Thompson completed the eyeshadow look with three pink/neutral shades from our Nudes of New York Eyeshadow Palette. First, blend Protector above the natural crease line, dragging color out and upwards. Then, apply Explorer at the outer edges of the crease to lift the eye shape up, and beneath the lash line again, blending color up towards where your brows end. Apply Dreamer in the center of the lids to create a bigger, more open-looking eye.
Place an liquid eyeliner pen at a 45 degree angle to map out the eyeliner wing you want to draw on. Then, swipe the eyeliner along the upper lash line, winging out and up to create an upwards tilted cat eye.
Give brows a bit of extra height and volume by brushing clear mascara through them in an upwards direction.
Using a concealer a few shades darker than your skin tone, draw a line of contour just above your natural cheekbone, blending color in with a makeup brush.
Using the concealer in a shade that matches your natural skin tone, apply concealer under eyes, swiping it upwards from the outer corners of the eyes.
Give those lashes lots of lift and bounce using Sky High mascara on the upper eyelashes.
