Marie Antoinette

So i wore this makeup to my year 11 formal, which was fancy dress.

You start with a full face of your usual foundation rotuine, make sure to use a powder over the top and also make sure it's blended into your neck. Perfect looking skin is a must for this look in particular.

1- After foundation and powder, check for foundatio lines or risk looking stupid.
2- Take a white eyeshadow or face powder (i used eyeshadow because I couldn't find face powder) and buff it onto your entire face and neck. This may take 3 or 4 layers and you'll probably use quite a bit of powder so buy something cheap if you don't want to waste your money. I only used 2 layers because I'm already reeeaaally pale.
3- That's your face done :P

1- Use a pink tinted blush on the apple of your cheek and along the cheekbones. Don't be too heavyhanded or you could end up looking totally stupid.

1- Apply a pale-ish pink lipstick and blot.
2- Follow up with either clear or pink tinted lipgloss.

1- Fill in eyebrows with an appropriately matching eyebrow pencil or eyeshadow. I used dark brown eyeshadow.
2- If you haven't already, apply white eyeshadow over the whole lid.
3- Apply light purple/lavendar eyehshadow on the inner corner
4- Apply light pink eyeshadow from where the purple ends to the outer corner of your eye and a little bit above the crease.
5- using either a dark purple, dark pink or grey, define your crease.
7- Apply white eyeliner on your waterline
8- Use a black mascara, but not too heavily
