Make That Face Monday, Monday, Monday: Tegan and Sara (Heartthrob Album Cover)


Riding on a show high, here’s a very easy talk-through tutorial on this lewk by the Quin Twins, donned in a photography used for their latest album cover, Heartthrob. Tegan and Sara is a Canadian pop duo that recently performed here. I am still kind of reeling from the awesome experience, which I have posted about on my blog here, in case you care to read about it. 🙂

Anyway, I chose this look because it is deceptively neutral. It is quite wearable and “safe,” despite having orange and violet eyeshadow, a super strong contour and frosty/pearly pink lips. I love how it kinda dupes everyone into thinking that you are wearing neutrals/an “everyday” look because it’s not so loud and not so bold. I don’t know, I didn’t notice their makeup was so colorful, did you guys?

That contour, though! I can’t recreate/wear/pull it off. Also surprised at the pinkness of the lip color selection!

And with all the tough-face posing I was doing, I just had to take a break and smile a little. 🙂

  1. love how you retained the naturalness from the original photo but made it much softer ❤ orange and purple!! will have to try that…

  2. Agreed… Their eyes look deceptively neutral, but they’re pretty vivid gold and lilac.

    I think the contour was so important for them because of their haircuts, but I think you can manage not really paying much attention to it given your long hair. I like this look!. I think it’s comfortably understated while being suitably done up 🙂

    • Weird no? As in first glance, I thought I was gonna be making a neutral brown semi-smoky eye, tapos gold and lilac! Haha.

      Yay, thank you 😀
