Copy Cat Series: The AnubisMakeup Edition

I'm sure you're all aware that there are tons of people to follow on Instagram and that out of these tons of people there are a lot of makeup artists and makeup enthusiasts who share their love of makeup and makeup artistry. I follow a lot of these people and get inspiration from these looks and so my friend, Stephanie, (who I've written about here before) came up with the Copy Cat Series and basically what she did was ask those of us who wanted to participate if we wanted to copy a look from one these inspirational people and tag them under #copycatseries. I was totally down for it because sometimes I lack inspiration and sometimes I want to do something but have no idea what to do and what better way to test my skills than to try to recreate someone's amazing look!

This past week's artist we were going to copy was Anubis Makeup. If you haven't looked at her looks and you're into makeup looks take the time to do so because her looks are absolutely phenomenal! I believe the goal is to do one every week from a different artist so I'm absolutely looking forward to who we copy next!

Without further ado:

The image of the top left corner is by Amber (anubismakeup) and the other images are my eye. 




I realize that mine came out completely different due to the shape of my eye and also because the blues I used weren't as navy as the look I was trying to copy but I'm still happy with how it came out!

THE RUNDOWN:

EYES:
  • Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper (The old one and I'm ALMOST done with it).
  • Inglot Cosmetics 313 Freedom Eyeshadow under the brow as a highlight and Kohl Eyeliner Pencil 01 in the waterline.
  • The Balm Cosmetics Nude 'Tude palette's Sultry and Sophisticated eyeshadows for the crease.
  • Sugarpill Makeup Chroma Lust Loose Eyeshadow in Royal Sugar on my lid.
  • Mattese Elite Fairy Dust Glitter in Blue (this is discontinued -_-).
  • MAC Cosmetics Fluidline in Blacktrack to create the reversed winged liner.

BROWS:
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Ash.

FACE:
  • The Balm Cosmetics TimeBalm Foundation in Light/Medium and TimeBalm Concealer in Light/Medium.

I hope you guys are liking these kinds of posts! I have other ideas but I'd also like to know what kind of things you'd like for me to write about!

Also, please take a peek at the looks of the ladies who I collaborated with on this series, they're all talented and beautiful!
