Punk Rock + Sepia Tones | A Marc Jacobs/NARS-inspired makeup look… twelve months late

!Sepia toned makeup, eyeshadow tutorial

Do you know how long it’s been since I’ve done a full makeup look and posted it? Months. Seasons. The last two were in April and May of last year.

Despite what the wait may have led you to believe, here’s a makeup look that I actually really loved. I shot it a year ago to the day, so I barely remember applying it, but I do remember being inordinately fond of the entire thing. It’s loosely inspired by the makeup created by François Nars for the Fall 2013 Marc Jacobs show — messy, smokey, a little punk rock.

I hope you like it as much as I do.

I literally don’t remember putting this eye makeup on, but looking back, I do really love the way it turned out — smoked-out black with eye open, and a flash of a toned-down burnt orange with eyes shut. The “sepia” shade is Clinique Fuller Fudge (a Chubby Stick for Eyes), and the black is the soft charcoal-black from Clarins’ Graphites Eye Quartet. 

The other three products listed at the bottom of the page are just your standard window dressing: MAC Blanc Type, still my go-to matte highlight, and Annabelle Licoriche softly through and along the upper lashline (and, okay, with the dregs then pulled through my brows — multi-tasking, man). On my lashes is Armani’s Eyes to Kill mascara, which I’m still reaching for whenever I want a super-pretty, voluminous, clump-free lash with no fuss.

For the base, I used theBalm timeBalm Concealer in Lighter Than Light and Marcelle Face Powder in Translucent — always, always, with these two. I really should try something new, but it’s hard, you know? Especially when you feel like the only cool-toned, too-pale, vaguely-olive person out there who can’t come within arm’s reach of anything containing ‘cones. I hear Marcelle’s Monochromatic Pressed Powder is ‘cone-free, so maybe that’ll be my next powder to try — though I did really want to try something glowy.

On the cheeks, I’m wearing MAC Harmony (much warmer than my usual fare), and on my lips is Clinique Curviest Caramel — a Chubby Stick (Intense), of course.

I recently realized that I never show you guys my forehead. Here is proof that I have one.

It is big and awkward, like all foreheads on film.

  10. Ugh, I LOVE this. Its elegant, and undone. It looks lived in. And it has the word "sepia" in the title.

    …By the way, looking back on your looks from around mid last year – isn't it fun that you had a blue period? XD

  11. Ahh! Love it! :) This look really suits you!

    LOVING this look, a LOT. Totally edgy and sultry – I always find these looks just seem plain messy on me, but you're pulling it off perfectly!

  13. So pretty! I am interested in learning how you do your hair, too! Hope you can do that one soon. :)

  14. I love this look! It's simultaneously soft enough for day time, but definitely has an edge that's good for an evening look as well.
