How I created Tootsie's gold drag look...

So I said I took photos during my first transformation as Tootsie. I wasn't going to post them because I thought it'd take too much time, and this really isn't much of a beauty blog since I think there are so many great ones out there already. But a few of you requested it and I found a way to resize a batch of images all at once so it didn't take much time at all getting the pics together. I thought it'd be nice to share since I noticed everyone had used totally different techniques to put their looks together.

What I used: (lots of shit

Arcona Cranberry Toner
Arcona White magic moisturizer
Givenchy Mister Mat (my favorite new primer. I like it better than smashbox)
Maybelline coverstick concealer in light beige
Chanel lift lumiere eye contour concealer-beige lumiere
Makeup forever HD Foundation 120
Makeup Forever HD powder
Mac Accentuate/sculpt
Mac MSF Brunette
Milani Touch of brown quad (second darkest brown)

Kryolan brow plastic
Mac Blackground Paint pot
Mac Blackout Gel liner
Mac Brassy Gel liner
Mac Blacktied shadow

Loreal hip Flamboyant shadow (yellow side)
Mac Copper Sparkle pigment
Mac gold stroke pigment
Givenchy phenomen eyes mascara
mac lip pencil chestnut
Mac lipl acquer sheena

Here's what I did... (don't pay attention to how creepy my eyes look since my contacts were moving out of place all crazy like =P)

1. Start with a smooth canvas. I toned with arcona cranberry primer, moisturized with arcona white ice, primed entire face with Givenchy mister mat. When applying heavy makeup like this smoothing primer is a must to get things on smoothly. Yeah I'm not wearing makeup. I don't know why people make such a big deal about taking pics with no makeup. Sure it's a bit darker around the eyes, nose, and mouth, but that goes for just about everyone. I don't really wear makeup that often. I like letting my skin breathe. I think bare skin is beautiful.

2. The tricky part. I used Kryolan brow plastic to cover my brows. You get about a pea sized amount then push it into your brows. Try to get it between all hair crevices. Then smooth and flatten it out as much as possible. I used an eyeliner stick to flatten it. This took me 2 tries. Try to look at it at different angles to see how the light hits it. make sure the shine on it is smooth and not bumpy.
3. Let the brows dry for a bit then I added some hd powder to seal it. Then i used the maybelline cover stick concealer to cover the brows and my entire lid all the way to the lash line. I bought the cheap think concealer specifically for this look. It's thicker and stickier than higher end shit, but perfect for what I was going for.

4. I then added more highlights with the chanel concealer to the bridge of my nose, under the eyes and on the cheek bone, on the chin, and on my upper lip then blended it with my MUF foundation which is about a shade lighter than my natural skin tone. After that I added a thick layer of hd powder all over my face. Don't worry about it looking chalky. I did it think to catch mistake and follow out makeup.

5. I then drew on my brows with Mac's brassy since I was going for a gold look.

6. I got a piece of card board and sort of cut a curve in it ( i just used the box that my chanel pressed powder came in since it was the perfect size. Place it right where the brows end up and out toward the hairline. It's used as a guide for contouring. I used mac's sculpt. start at the guid the blend up and out. concentrating the darkest toward the guide. I also added the milani golden brown shadow right at the guide line to add more depth and slightly blended out.

7. I did the same process for the cheekbones. the guide touching the lips and leading to the ear. then added the sculpt half way between the two points. Same process as before blend up and out. I slowly built on the color. I don't have a heavy hand.

8. more blending. added more check bone shadowing with Mac MSF in Brunette swooping down from ear then up toward the nose, Rounding out the cheeks. Also added some shadows to my jaw bone. Using a fluffy eyeshadow blending brush I added the milani medium gold brown shadow to shade the sides of my nose slightly graduating out toward the cheek shadows. Blended this all with the hd powder making sure no blend away any harsh lines or clumpy whites.
Then I did the eyes. UD Vapor (silver white) on brow bone and lower lid. Mac blackground paint pot drawn at crease and slightly blended out. Then copper sparkle layered slightly above that. Then the Loreal yellow about that. Then a winged liner using Mac blacktrack gel liner.
9. I added Blacktied shadow over the blackground crease line. Then layered gold stroke over that and blended the shadows till I got the effect I wanted. Then I added false lashes and added the Givenchy mascara to the lower lashes. I drew in a beauty mark with black track. Finally, I overlined my lips with Mac chestnut lip pencil and filled it in with Mac's sheena lip lacquer and blended together, then added a dab of chanel concealer to the center of my lower lip and blended out more.

Hmm...probably not the best tutorial. Hope someone got something out of it. =) If you have any questions, just ask.
