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.) Pack on Coast (shimmering blue) from the Musée Beauty Impressionism Palette to your eyelids in a round shape.

Step 2. Add a vibrant shimmering blue eyeshadow

3.) Next, add a bold dramatic wing with black liquid eyeliner. The bigger the better because the tears we add later will look unbalanced if you don’t have dramatic eye makeup. You can make the wings uneven and a little haphazard for an unraveled look.

Step 3. Bold wing

4.) Add blush- and a lot of it. Create a draped blush effect by starting on the apples of your cheeks and blending up your cheekbones.

Step 4. Blush, blush, blush!

5.) Create fake smeared mascara tears by dipping into a black eyeshadow and then spraying a small eyeshadow brush with some setting spray. With the wet eyeshadow, roll the brush underneath your eyes and let the eyeshadow-saturated setting spray drip down your face.

Step 5. Create the fake tears

6.) Use a creamy red lip liner like Renoir of Lip Sketch to line your lips and then fill them in completely.
