Picture day Makeup Tutorial!

Hey everyone!
I had my registration day at school recently, which is where they take yearbook photos and id card photos and I did this makeup look! So I thought that I'd share it with you guys. It's not really that big of a deal at my school to do heavy makeup, but I just want to have a nice sculpted eye for my pictures! So let's get started.

Face: I didn't want to wear foundation because I was going to cheer right after, but I wore some concealer on my blemishes. I also applied a shimmery highlighter (the balm's mary loumanizer) on my cheek bones and a matte peach blush (the balm instain in swiss dot) on my cheeks. 

Eyes: I applied a matte cream shade all over my eye (from lashline to browbone). I used MAC Brulee. Then I took a matte light brown (sultry in the balms nude tude palette) and applied it to my crease to lightly contour my eye. I took a deep dark brown (MAC Espresso) and applied that to my outer V and blended it in towards my lid. Then I took a matte black (serious in the nude tude palette) and patted it on top of the outer v. I also used the matte black shade as liner and under the outer portion of the lower lashline. I finished with a couple coats of covergirl lashblast volume (waterproof). 

Lips: I used my Stila lipglaze in tropical punch (not wearing it in the photo though!) just to add some color and shine without shimmer. 

So that was my picture day makeup tutorial! Let me know what you think of it in the comments below and if you are still in school, let me know what you wore/are wearing for your picture day makeup!
