It’s that time of year again! Your friends may or may not be throwing a Superbowl Sunday party and if they are then hopefully you can share your support for your team through your makeup!
Now, neither of these teams are my teams (I was rooting for Atlanta in the NFC championship) buuuut regardless, most of us are rooting for someone. I personally don’t like the Ravens but to each their own!
So I created these looks simultaneously (because let’s face it, I’m trying to save time) one side of my face for each team, which is only fair.
I had already prepped my face before doing these looks (foundation, concealer, blush, brows, etc.)
First step in eye prepping is using a primer. I used MAC paint pot in Painterly.
Then apply Maybelleline Color Tattoo in Bold Gold in the centre of the eye. On top of the cream shadow I applied the appropriately named Blitz shadow from the Urban Decay Vice palette. Be careful, there is a lot of fallout from the shadows in this palette that have a lot of glitter.
Apply a white sparkly shadow in the inner third of the eye. I used Crystal Avalanche by MAC
Apply a dark purple shadow in the outer third of the eye and then blended up into the crease. I used Vice from the Urban Decay Vice palette. Make sure to blend all the colours so that there are no harsh lines
Take a small brush and apply the same dark purple shadow on the lower lash line, only go half way in. The other half of the lower lash line apply the gold. Highlight the brow, I used a champagne colour from NYX called My Favorite Color.
Tightline and line the waterline with a black pencil and use black liquid liner on the top lash line. Curl lashes and apply black mascara.
Choose a purple lipstick for the lips, I used a MAC lipliner in Just Wonderful (limited edition form last year) and then topped it off with a purple cremesheen gloss from MAC as well in Narcissus.
Now for the 49ers. Their team colours also have gold and white but instead of purple, we’re using red.
Repeat the first three steps from the Ravens look (apply primer, Bold Gold cream shadow in the middle third of the eye and then white shimmery shadow on the inner third of the eye)
With a blending brush, apply a dark red shadow in the outer third of the eye and blend it up into the crease. I used NYX Rust but any cranberry-like colour would work.
With a small brush apply the red shadow on the outer half of the lower lash line and apply the gold shadow on the inner half. Highlight the brow, I used the same NYX shadow from the Ravens look.
Tightline and line the waterline with a black pencil and use a black liquid eyeliner for the top lash line. Curl lashes and apply black mascara.
Line the lips with a red lip pencil and finish with either a lipstick or a gloss. I used Annabelle’s lip pencil in Red Cherry and Revlon Lip butter in Red Velvet.
Hopefully most of you will choose one look and not wear both like I am in this picture! I hope you all have great Superbowl parties, eat lots of chicken wings and drink lots of beer! I’m pretty sure I’ll be sporting the 49ers look 😉
