How To: Editorial Renaissance Makeup

At Musée Beauty, we love a good art-inspired look. This look is inspired by one of the most famous art movements: Renaissance! 

Renaissance queen makeup

1.) Start with your base: Prime and moisturize your face to ensure an even surface for your foundation. Put concealer on any dark spots on your face or neck that you’d like to conceal. Blend out your concealer with a damp beauty sponge or blending brush. Apply foundation to your face and blend it out. Now is the time to do your brows as well!

Step 1. Base makeup

2.) Let’s finish out your face makeup! Apply a peachy blush with a fluffy brush and apply it from your cheekbones to the apples of your cheeks. Use shade Wisp (champagne highlighter) from the Musée Beauty Impressionism Palette and add it to your cheekbones along with the tip of your nose, and the bridge of your nose. Take concealer and liberally apply it to your eyebrows. Use a spoolie to help it coat your eyebrow hairs evenly.

Step 2. Finish off face makeup

3.) Eyeshadow time! Take a dark eyeshadow (black, dark purple or blue) and apply it to the inner half of your eyelid (under-eye and on your lid) and the outer half. Be sure to leave a gap. 

Step 3. Begin eyeshadow look

4.) Blend out the dark shade and add shade Poppies from the Musée Beauty Impressionism Palette in the gap on your under-eye. Apply a gold shade to the gap on your eyelid and blend it thoroughly.

Step 4. Add gold and red to the eyeshadow look

5.) Apply the gold shade in a line from the middle of the red on your under-eye down to your cheeks. Add a gold gem under your eye in the center with eyelash glue. Apply concealer to the outside corners of your mouth and blend it out.

Step 5. Finish off the eyes

6.) Put on some mascara (or skip it for a more editorial look). Take shade Poppies and blend it out from the center of your mouth. Take the gold shade and apply it to your cupid’s bow. Apply a clear gloss on top of your lips to finish things out!
