Dami Im Grand Final X Factor Australia Makeup Tutorial

Hey musers,

So today I have for you an EXCITING makeup tutorial which I've been working on for the past week (phew!) and many of you guys already know what it is! Dami Im's makeup tutorial for her Grand Final Performances look, where she sang the likes of 'And I Am Telling You', 'Hero' and her new single 'Alive'! If y'all don't know her, you should check out her website or look her up on Youtube to watch her X Factor performances.

I was booting for Dami all the way through this Australian X Factor Season. She has exceptional talent and I get goosebumps listening to her. I can feel the anointing just flowing through her voice no matter what song she sings, and I absolutely loved how she gave glory to God when she was announced winner for 2013. She's also so incredibly humble and down to earth. So inspiring, right?

Well, in tribute to her, I couldn't help but make a tutorial based on one of her looks during the show. Martin Bray is an amazing makeup artist and I am a huge fan of his work! He created many fabulousss looks for all the contestants and yes, I did ask you guys to vote for which look I should recreate on my Facebook post and Instagram pic, but that was actually before the grand final took place! I HAD to choose her grand final makeup since it was such a key moment. Also because I think you guys all know I just love working with glitters and pigments! ^o^

  • FYI, Dami 언니 has monolids, but as you can see from the photos of the makeup on me (I have small double eyelids), this look goes perfect on all different kinds of lids! Dami onni has pretty small-ish eyes so I'm sure Martin Bray used all his expertise to flatter them in the best way possible through this makeup for her all-important Grand Final! Thus, if you have small eyes, you can trust that this might look pretty good on you, especially for prom, formals, or even dress up parties and fun girls' night outs!

Here's a screenshot of the look I attempted to recreate:

Throughout the night, as she sang each of her 3 songs, her lipstick
colour changed from nude to barbie pink to bright red.
I stuck with the first combination for my tutorial!

My recreation:

What do you guys think? ^_^:

Do you guys like it??! :) I hope you do!!
I actually went through quite a bit of trouble to try and find that black wig (and spent lots of $ on it! If you're in Sydney and wondering where I got it from - I bought it from 김선영미용실/Kim Sun Young Hair Dresser) ......and I'm just suddenly thinking whether or not I should post up a photo of oppa with it on.. HAHAHAHA OK he might kill me so maybe not :P But oh my goodness... Guys should all get long hair. They look so pretty! Hahaha

Sidetrack much?
