Lilly Ghalichi’s Makeup Tutorial Part Three – Eyeliner, Mascara, Blush, Highlighter, and Nude Lip

This is part 3 of Lilly Ghalichi’s makeup tips and tricks and includes eye makeup finishing touches, how to glow, and getting a perfect nude lip.


On 8/15/14 Lilly Ghalichi streamed a live makeup demo with her makeup artist Bria Valencia. This is part three of the tutorial. Be sure to check out part one and part two – they are FULL of amazing tips! In this post we will get into Lilly Ghalichi’s highlight as well as her gorgeous nude lip.

When we last left off on Lilly Ghalichi (and Kim Kardashian’s) Tips and Tricks Part Two we were beating our face for the gods with double (and sometimes triple) layered highlighting and contouring.


Next we are going back to finish the eyes. The reason for this is because you want to apply all of the under eye concealer BEFORE applying your bottom lash shadows and mascara, otherwise you might accidentally cover them up with the concealer and you would have to do it all over again.

Bria lined Lilly’s water line and lower lash line with MAC’s Eye Kohl in Teddy ($17). Lilly noted when you have a heavy lash and smokey look on the lid it’s important to balance it out on the lower lash line as well. MAC’s Teddy eyeliner is a go-to for me even for day time wear! it’s super versatile and pretty!

Bottom Lash Line

Rose Gold Eyeshadow for Shimmer

Bria then used a rose gold colored shadow (I’m not sure which one, sorry!) underneath the brown liner and smudged it down slightly.

Next she patted a dark brown colored eyeshadow that was the same color as the liner on the bottom lash line to intensify it.

Blending the Bottom Lash Line

Bria blended this with a Sigma F63 Airbrush Blender brush ($12). I own some Sigma makeup brushes and they are go-to’s for me. They are excellent quality at a great price, highly recommend!

Lilly Tip– she says for skin care and foundation you should splurge, but for mascara you should save and buy drugstore!

Lilly loves L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black  ($7) which is also a favorite of the Kardashians.

Bria used L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes ($8.99) on Lilly’s upper and lower lashes. On the upper lashes the mascara is blending Lilly’s real and false lashes (remember from part one that she was wearing TWO pairs of her Lilly Lashes!) and adding drama as well as further opening the eyes.

Bria Tip: Bria recommends putting a finger behind your lashes as you apply mascara to help to coat as well as curl them.


Peachy Blush

For blush Bria used MAC Honey Jasmine Blush which unfortunately was limited edition and is no longer available, but a similar color that is a huge staple of mine is MAC Powder Blush in Peaches ($23). I think I’ve been wearing Peaches for 10 years now.

Bria not only applied the blush to the apples of Lilly’s cheeks, she also applied a small amount of blush around the contour of the forehead and on the chin. This may sound crazy, but I apply blush like this as well. If you use a light hand I promise it does not look crazy!

Nose Highlight

Now onto the glow! Bria used MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Global Glow on the bridge and tip of Lilly’s nose because it is more of a tan glow and not too shiny which is better for the nose. You want to save the shiny glow for the cheeks

Cheek Highlight

In order to achieve Lilly’s beautiful cheekbone glow, Bria layered a few highlighters. On the cheekbones she applied MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in New Vegas which unfortunately is also limited edition and no longer available.

Lilly recommended Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in ‘Bronze’. Bria put some highlight on the cupid’s bow to as well. She applied this using a fan brush.

Next she liberally applied EYE M GLAM highlighting powder to Lilly’s cheek bones and around her tear ducts which really brightens the eyes.

Lip Liner

Lilly loves a nude lip, but in order to have it look really nice and to make sure she doesn’t look washed out, she first must use a brown liner to define her lips. Bria used Inglot Lipliner FM in 854.

Darker Brown Nude Lipstick

Bria she used MAC Lipstick in High Tea which is a slightly brown nude. This lipstick is no longer available, but MAC Lipstick in Honey Love is similar.

Lighter Pinky Nude Lipstick

After that she applied MAC Lipstick in Shy Girl which is more of a pinky nude in the center of Lilly’s lips.

She then used a white lipgloss from Inglot which I believe is the AMC Lip Gloss in 541 (I think this might be discontinued) again just in the center of the lips to highlight and add dimension. The lipgloss is opalescent and really pretty. Lilly mentioned that she really wanted to buy this lip gloss after it was applied because she had never tried it before.

Lilly Ghalichi’s Favorite Nude Lipgloss

Dior ‘Addict’ Ultra-Gloss in Nude (no longer available)

Dior ‘Addict’ Ultra Gloss in Nude is Real Housewives approved on both coasts!

The Real Housewives love this Dior lip gloss as well!

Translucent Finishing Powder

To finish off the face Bria used the MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder again under the cheekbone contour and on the chin to set and highlight a bit.

Lilly Tip: Lilly always asks her makeup artists to apply some bronzer to her neck and chest to insure that her face and body are all the same color.
