Yin & Yang Black & White Makeup Look


                 After watching a good Disney movie (Mulan..caught, caught), I always feel OH so inspired! How about you cuties? The reason why I bring this up, as a primary statement, is because this makeup look is rather EDITORIAL, and very Halloween like compared my usual set up, however, who says you can't have a little fun in the middle of Spring ;)?! On the left, is YIN, which is the recessive female side, and on the right is YANG, the strong male side. For those confused, YIN is black/white the very black and bold side, YANG is white/black the illuminated symmetrical side! I did have a DIFFERENT take on the Yin and Yang sign than many would, however, that's the beauty of the makeup artistry. Feel free to change things, add glitter, lashes, you catch my drift.  

              Down below you shall find the left, or right side of the face, with the product details and a bit about either Yin or Yang. As being one who took Chinese back in 9th grade, you learn a thing or two ;)!

YIN
Recessive/Nurturing
Female Role
Negative Charge (dark/moon)
Autumn/Winter
Earth

             Rather something soft, I took things into my own hands and did a twist on ol' Yin. With a pop of white on the inner thirds of my lid and a sharp, yet chic eyeliner set-up to represent a warrior of sorts, Yin won't be second to anyone, anytime soon!



Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment.
NYX Cosmetics - Jumbo Eye Pencil, Black Bean
Applied on half of the lips as a BLACK lip color! 

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade, Auburn
Smashbox - Full Exposure Pallet: M7 (base smoke out shade ), M5 (transitional shade - used to softly buff the matte black in, M5 )
Morphe Brushes - 35U Multi-Color Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette: Shade 4 (inner corners to represent a bit of Yang), 35 (inner corner highlight) 
Make Up For Ever - Star Lit Liquid, Arctic White (inner corners)
NYX Cosmetics - Jumbo Eye Pencil, Black Bean
Used on the waterlines, and as a smoked out base color for the outer crease.
Sephora Collection - Waterproof Eyeliner, Black Lace
                      Create a line from the top of the inner thirds of your lids, and drag it out with a delicate flick curving towards your brows. The second line will stem from your upper lash lines! Take this line and curve it the OPPOSITE direction of your first line, THEN, finish off with a flick 1/8 down stemming down onto your under eye area. The line should be curved, not straight! 
Ciate London - Wonderwand Mascara
Huda Beauty - Classic False Lashes, Sasha  

YANG
Strong and assertive
Male Role
Heaven
Spring/Summer
Positive charge (light/sun)

                 Yang is focused on a strong frosty glow, with a bit of interesting eye makeup! I wanted to represent the heaven with ethereal skin, the positive charge with ELECTRIC shade combinations, and the strength, with sharply blended lines. 
             


Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment.
NYX Cosmetics - Jumbo Eye Pencil, Milk
Applied on half of the lips as a WHITE lip color! 
Shades were buffed together with a Beauty Blender to form
a gradient ombre. I felt this showed how Yin works with Yang,
rather how Yang is separate from Yin. 
Make Up For Ever - Star Lit Liquid, Arctic White (highlight)

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade, Auburn
Smashbox - Full Exposure Pallet: S7 (inner corners, applied DAMP), M5 (transitional shade, applied twice for optimal pigment) 
Morphe Brushes - 35U Multi-Color Shimmer Eyeshadow Pallet: Shade 35 (inner corners, brow bones), Shade 1 (inner third of lid, slightly buffed on lower lash lines)
Make Up For Ever - Star Lit Liquid, Arctic White 
Used to outline the upper half of the inner thirds. Stem a line from the tear duct up above to mid-way across the lids. Follow how a cut crease generally is set-up!
NYX Cosmetics - Jumbo Eye Pencil, Black Bean
Used on the waterlines, and to add a bit of depth to the crease WITHOUT making it too dark! 
Ciate London - Wonderwand Mascara
Huda Beauty - Classic False Lashes, Sasha
