What’s up, everybody? Welcome back to my channel! I have a special guest here today. This is one of my closest friends, Lipstick Nick. Hi, honey. Hi! I’m so happy to be here. My god, you guys, okay so me and Nicole have been friends a long time.
Her handle on all social media is Lipstick Nick, yes, ma’am, how did you get that name? Obviously, I mean, you’re a make up artist. Just, Nicole. I mean, yeah, when I started making my Instagram I was like, “Yeah, okay, I love lipstick, my name’s Nick, my parents always called me Nick, so Lipstick Nick.
” Yeah, can we just go for eyelash curler tattoo please? Oh yeah! She’s like getting her knuckles ready. I don’t know what’s the best angle, but. I’m like comb my eye. I mean, hi, I have a lipstick tattoo on me in case everyone forgot, look at that old school Mac.
I love that, I love, I love, I love. Yeah, so we actually are both ex-employees of Mac, that’s actually where we met. Mac fam, Mac Hollywood in Hyland. Yes, Mac alumni, wait, is that gang related? LA! Fuck, we’re gonna get arrested after this.
We’re cool, we’re cool. Yeah, so we actually met at the Mac counter and just became really close, and we’ve done a lot of shoots together. We’ve done so many shoots over the years. Yes, some really iconic moments.
Nicole painted the infamous pink bandana, skull bandana on my face which went crazy all over the internet a few years ago. It did. And we’ve done a lot of magic together. So, I just shot the beauty campaign for my Androgyny eyeshadow palette and the palette is almost here.
So, I thought, “You know what? Let’s have Nicole come to the studio and recreate the look that she did for me.” Well, you did all the looks! I did all the looks, it was so much fun, this is like the B look of like we were excited about it all day.
Yes, so we just have to recreate and bring it back. When I first showed Nicole the palette, I said, “Okay, like when you like look at colors what are you gravitated to right away? That’s what I want you to do and then we’ll build off of that and do more.
” So, when you saw Fetish is kind of the start of the show. Yes because you know Sketch for Mac was one of my favorite colors and I was like, “Oh my god, this is like what I wish Sketch looked like, it’s an intensified Sketch, so I was like red!” ‘Cause I love red.
Yes, and then she went ham on Frosting today. Ooh, look at that lid, bitch, like can we just look at that lid? Gets me excited it’s so pretty. The formula, you fucking killed the formula, it’s like I put it on but it’s so buttery and perfect and amazing, and beautiful.
Yes, I can’t wait for everyone to dive into this palette and to play with it and to try it out. Now, this look is very I think like, when I think of this look I think like very classic lipstick, Nick.
Like, this is just hi, you know, walking into my ex’s funeral like “Hi”. Game over. Game over. Well. I’m obsessed with this look, it is so stunning and if you want to see her create this on my face, then keep on watching.
All right, so we’re about to beat this face into submission and I had Nicole use this primer on set the other day. It worked pretty great on. Yeah, it did, I loved it. It’s amazing. This is by the brand Sisley, a little pricey, but you get those pores snatched.
I’m gonna use this foundation, the LaMer soft fluid. Jeffrey also let me use this at the photoshoot, I fell in love with it, it’s amazing. It smells expensive, which I think is a good thing! It smells crazy.
But it’s also just the actual application of it was amazing. And now it is winter, I am so pale, so I do like to use a little bit of a bronzier, warmer foundation. Because it gives me a little bit of life.
Next we’re going to go in and start highlighting with this is one of my new favorites, the Shape Tape from Tarte. Everything. She’s feeling sixteen again. We going to use this Laura Mercier contour book.
I love that, she’s very well used. Yes, she is, I see this color, I’m gonna go ahead and use this one. I want to start light and then we’ll kind of build it with powders, because I like to do both. I like to layer everything.
And the way she does my contour on the cheekbones? Wew! Okay, we’re gonna bake you. Yes. What are we gonna use? We’re gonna use the powder. By LaMer. Let’s just call it “The Powder”. It sets the under eyes so good.
So for all over I’m gonna use the Mac mineral powder, these are my favorite Which shade is that? This is light. So, you just put that all over? I am, put this anywhere that I didn’t bake and kind of lightly over the contour.
So, me and Nicole both used to work at the Mac Store. Not the same location, but I would go in and Nicole would help me out. And for some reason, I was gravitated to that energy and her makeup was so slayed.
Like, I remember, like I’m one of those judgmental people that would go into the store and be like, “Okay, I only want the person”… Who has the best make up, yeah! The best make up to help me out, ’cause you know, I’m like, “Hmmm.
” So I would gravitate towards Nicole and she’d always have like crazy like colors and just weird stuff that was a little, you know. Unconventional for like a Mac store, even though Mac is very creative, it’s still not everyone is down to wear six colors on their eyes and make it look sickening.
And then we started working together on some shoots. Nicole actually did my make up for my very first ad campaign for Jeffrey Star Cosmetics. Feels like yesterday. It feels like literally yesterday, but it was over two years ago now.
It’s crazy. Okay, so I’m gonna start building my contour I’m gonna use the Laura contour book. Ooh, yes. Right here, medium contour. Medium. Come on medium. Okay, so I’m ready to prime, I’m gonna use my Mac Painterly paint pot.
It’s just soft ochre. You use soft ochre? But yeah, I love paint, I think especially like for your skin tone, this is gonna better. I’m just gonna use a flat, kind of concealer brush. It’s a little synthetic if you will.
So we’re gonna go on on brows, we’re gonna freehand some brows, which is my favorite thing to do on you. I’m gonna use the Anastasia dip brow and blonde. Come on blond, I’ve been using that forever. All right, we’re going back in with that shape tape.
Going back in with that shape tape. Now, Nicole carves out the brows with the concealer. Okay, so while Nicole’s doing the brow, I just looked back on my channel and three years ago, you guys, Nicole did a pink skull bandana Halloween mask on me which was one of my most liked picture ever on Facebook back then.
And I’m just clicking and I’m like, “Oh my god, come on memory”. So if you go all the way down on my channel, you guys, you can find it and it’s a time lapse of Nicole doing like the sickest make up, like I’m sorry.
That was so fun. I’m like “Hi, come on video and video” this was so fun. Look at my hairline we’re old new, come on old scalp. That hair color was so fun. It was fun. Okay, so first I’m gonna take the Beauty Killer palette, the only reason we’re using this ones because I need this china white to set and then everything else is gonna be from that Androgyny palette.
Cool. All right, what are we dipping into? We’re dipping into Charm, with the big fluffy brush. Come on, Charm. And I’m just gonna deposit this on the crease. So next I’m gonna use this NYX Vivid Brights.
I’m gonna use this as a base, not that the color really needs it, because they’re so pigmented. But I just love to layer and build the intensity. With creams, yeah. With creams, I always do cream and then powder.
So I’m gonna take a little bit of this, it’s the exact same color as Fetish in this palette. It looks so similar, it’s cool, yeah. It’ so similar, I love these, they blend really nicely. And you know everyone’s gonna rate us to fail if we don’t say the name of this.
Bad Blood. Bad Blood, think of Taylor Swift. So now I’m gonna take a little bit of Fetish. Yes. That’s one of my favorite shades in my own palette, but I just love that red tone. It’s so pretty. I’m taking out a little flat packer brush, I’m just packing it right on top of anywhere that I put that red base.
Right. The next I’m gonna do is take my fix plus. This is the… oh my god, coconut. It is coconut. Thank you, sorry, my brain was like red bull. That’s amazing. Come on, now. But I don’t want to spray it into the pan because it’s beautiful, I don’t want to ruin the palette, so I just sprayed my hand, and then you close your eyes.
And I’m just gonna take a little bit of fix and just give you a little, little tacky. I thought it was one of those Mac products that me and you have been using for so long. For ever. Never leaving our kit.
Nope. Never, never, never. Perfect. I’m gonna take my finger. And you’re gonna dip it in a shade. Frosting. Shade Frosting. To Frosting and just gonna go right, oh my god. What? Look at how beautiful that is.
Come on, eye porn. Now, when I was creating this shade, I just wanted something that was really pigmented. But had like a cool, golden, not dual chrome, but kind of a shape shifter type of effect. It totally has that.
Now, obviously, you don’t have to wet it, it’s so intense because it’s wet, which is amazing. But any metallic, when you wet it, if you want that extra drama. But even if you don’t, you want something, it’s super wearable, I mean you could just wear this if you don’t wet it, it’s just such a pretty gold shimmer for your lid.
Like, I love that. Right, before I do mascara, I’m gonna use this make up forever. Ooh, that’s a pretty color. It is pretty. It’s M40, it’s like a yellow. Those are the new? Aqua XLs. Look at that beautiful canary yellow.
It is I really like it, it’s so brightening, but acts like a little bit different than a whiter beige, it adds like a little extra something. And I’m gonna play off of the frosting and then it’s kind of like a yellowy gold.
Go ahead and look all the way up. Okay, next we’re gonna do mascara. I’m gonna use the Roller Lash from Benefit. My tried and true. I’ve never used this before, so I’m excited. ‘Cause I see it in your videos, obviously, but I’ve never tried it.
It’s just really good, doesn’t smudge, it looks amazing. All right, next we’re gonna do lashes, these are the SlayLas from Flutter. I love Flutter. I love these, they’re my fave. They’re full drama. Full drama and I like to put it with a little spiky, but they’re full, these are perfect for obviously this dramatic look that we’re doing.
This simple, soft wedding look. Just really easy to wear, natural look. Next I don’t really need to do an eyeliner with this, but I kind of want to, just so like complete the eye up top. So, I’m gonna use Weirdo, these are eye safe, because I know that I used these liners all the time.
Yes. I’m gonna take a little bit of Weirdo, just a super, skinny brush. Little Cosette brush. My baby. And look down to the left. I’m gonna add a little color to Jeffree’s cheeks around the apple and I’m gonna use this Marc Jacobs blush and Lines and Last Night.
It’s a cool name. It’s a really cool name, I love it. Slutty. All right, my favorite time of the day, time to fucking highlight. So, what are you gonna do? I’m gonna use Frosting, because it’s fucking beautiful.
Okay. Just you take this on a fan brush, just gonna right on your cheek bone, oh my god. How does she look? Oh my god, that’s so pretty, I love it! Now we know one highlight is not enough, so Nicole’s gonna go in with my Skin Frost shade in peach goddess, one of my favorites.
It’s my favorite. Is it? It’s my favorite, yeah. I love it so much. I’m gonna take a little bit of this right here on the arch. Peach goddess? Peach goddess. I love highlight on the brow bone. Me, too.
I think it like really ties it all in. I think so, too, and it just like helps to lift a little more and it just looks so pretty in pictures, especially in video stuff like this, ’cause it catches the light.
So for lip we kind of did like a 90s moment? So, instead of using a liner on the lip, I’m just gonna use celebrity skin on the outside, and then I’m nude on the inside. Last step is setting the face.
My favorite, almost favorite. Yes, Urban Decay all nighter is my go-to. So, let’s set this mug. Let’s do it. Yeah. All right. I’m feeling ready, baby. You feel it now? You feel set? I think the only thing that’s missing is maybe some hair change.
Go for your hair change. Yes, let’s take it there. All right, we’ll be right back. All right, girl, that was a journey. It was. An amazing one. We made it. Yes, we made it, it was unreal. Like, I just looked in the mirror, you guys, off camera and I was like, “Oh” even though we did recreate this look from our Androgyny shoot, I’m still like a little shook about it, I don’t think I’m ever taking this off.
What’s hard is like at the shoot, too, we had go to right two different looks, so it wasn’t like definitely sitting there for a while. I didn’t get to sit, spin, suck on anything. We had to wipe it off and move on to the next look.
And I was like, “Oh, no! I hate destroying like, I feel like I’m destroying your art by taking it off”. It’s beautiful. I’m so happy we got to recreate this look. I love it. So happy, yes. All right, we want you guys to recreate this look at home, try out some craziness, put some shit on your lid, like just get out of your comfort zone.
