FOTD Alexandra Burke - Start Without You Inspired Makeup

Here is my attempt at recreating Alexandra Burke's beautiful makeup look in her Start Without You music video.  I have uploaded a video to YouTube of me creating this look, to view click here.

What I used;

Make Up For Ever (MUFE) HD Foundation # 173
Nars Loose Powder Mountain
Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer Tan, set with MUFE HD Powder
ELF Cool Bronzer, darkest brown to contour, medium brown to blend contour
Mac Format Blush
Nars Albatross Highlighter, top of cheek bones, forehead, bridge of nose, chin, under contour in cheek hollows to add extra definition

Nars Smudge Proof Primer
Mac Spiked Eyebrow Pencil
Nars Biarittz e/s all entire lid
Elf Cool Bronzer, darkest brown on lid and up over crease, under lower lash line 1/2 way
Nars Lola Lola e/s over ELF darkest brown
Mac Vanilla pigment, inner corner socket/tear duct and brow bone highlight
Clinique Cream liner - True Black upper lash line & outer 1/4 lower lash line, set & deepened with Mac Carbon e/s
Urban Decay 24/7 glide on liner zero upper waterline
Urban Decay 24/7 glide on liner Whiskey, lower waterline
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara Black

Mac Creamola Lipliner all over lips as base
Mac Cork lipliner as outline
Mac Freckletone Lipstick

Tada all done!

I think it's a gorgeous look even if the liner above the upper lash line is alot more dramatic than I would usually like to wear it.
