Milk Makeup Mars Holographic Stick Tutorial

Milk Makeup Mars Holographic Stick Tutorial. Five Product Face.

Milk Makeup has released a new Holographic Stick. The shade is called Mars and it's a golden peach tone with the medium pink flash. Besides the fact that it's beautiful, there are quite a few reasons to love it. First, I suspect that it was designed specifically for deeper skin tones, and I really appreciate that. I like supporting brands that make it a point to have products that work for everybody. It's also relatively subtle. The original holographic stick was a lavender shade, which for my personal taste meant that I only wore it at night. I've worn the new shade during the day and never felt uncomfortable or showy.

A few posts back I did I look based on the original Holographic Stick in the lavender shade Supernova. You can find that tutorial here. Keep reading to see an example of how I like to wear the new shade.

Glossier Stretch Concealer in Deep, Au Naturale Powder Blush in Apricot, Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in Mars, Vapour Beauty Multi Use in Courtesan, and Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara. Five Product Face.

Glossier Stretch Concealer in Dark & Deep | $18 | 0.17 oz
I'm between shades so I mix Dark and Deep. I use this product more as an overall complexion evener than a traditional concealer. Although I wish I fit into a specific shade, mixing two shades does allow me to add some subtle dimension to the face.

Au Natural Powder Blush in Apricot | $25 | 4 grams | Natural & Vegan
This is a soft orange shade. On my complexion it adds balancing warm that's not super obvious on the face. I have the product in the old packaging/formulation, I believe the new shade Fig might be the most comparable.

Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in Mars | $28 | 1 oz | Vegan
This look was inspired by this golden peach holographic highlighter. In the headshots it's difficult to see the shift, but trust me it's there. 

Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara | $22 | 0.28 fl oz | Natural

This is my new favorite green beauty mascara, if just for the fact that it's a 2-in-1 product that includes both a mascara and a lash primer. For me lash primer is an essential. Unless I'm in a rush, I always use it.

Vapour Beauty Aura Multi Use Classic | $36 | 0.24 oz | Natural
Another great multi-use green beauty product, this is a travel essential for me. It works beautifully on both lips and cheeks, but in this look I just used it on my lips.
