How did Brit Cochran created these looks?

Shot 1 

Using Kryolan Aquacolor in Black, I freehanded the outlines across the chin and neck with MAC #209 eyeliner brush. Next, I filled in the large shape with Kryolan 032 Red Aquacolor using a small flat shadow brush like MAC #239 eye shader brush . The blue circles were filled in using Tarte, "Unicorn Kisses" Clay Pot Waterproof liner with a Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage brush. The white shapes were also created with Tarte, "White" Clay Pot Waterproof liner with a clean Secret Camouflage brush by Laura Mercier. 

Shot 2 & 3

The skin is evened out with a light layer of Tarte Amazon of the Sea foundation. Brows are filled in where sparse with Peripera Speedy Eyebrow Auto Pencil #2. Then, the look begins once again by freehand sketching the black outlines using Kryolan Black Aquacolor and a MAC #209 eyeliner brush. Next, using the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage brush. I apply the colors in the negative spaces. The colors I used are Kryolan 032 Red , Tarte "Unicorn Kisses" and "White" Clay Pot Waterproof liner. Using a pointed cotton swab dipped into the white Clay Pot liner, I applied 3 dots on to the face. 

The base and eyebrow remains the same. I begin again by freehand sketching the black shapes with the Kryolan Black Aquacolor and eyeliner brush. I use the same color and brush to fill in the tear shape under the left eye. Using a Tarte Etch & Sketch Double Ended Bamboo Liner Brush. I fill in the blue circle and negative space on the right with Tarte "Unicorn Kisses" Clay Pot Waterproof liner. Then, I use the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage brush and paint Kryolan 032 Red Aquacolor above the eyebrow. Lastly, I add the white dots with Tarte "White" Clay Pot Waterproof liner and a pointed cotton swab.

Shot 4 & 5

The base and eyebrow remains the same. I once again apply the black lines on the face with the Kryolan Black Aquacolor and eyeliner brush. Using a Tarte Etch & Sketch Double Ended Bamboo Liner Brush I fill in the shapes on the right with Tarte "Unicorn Kisses" and "Mint" Clay Pot Waterproof liner. On the fingers I gesturally draw two lines with Tarteist Clay Paint Liner in Black. 

Base and eyebrow continue to be consistent. I start again by freehand the black line using Kryolan Black Aquacolor and MAC #209 eyeliner brush. Using a Tarte Etch & Sketch Double Ended Bamboo Liner Brush, I fill in the negative space with Tarte "Unicorn Kisses" Clay Pot Waterproof liner. Then I create a tangental red shape along the black line with Kryolan Red 032 Aquacolor and a Secret Camouflage brush by Laura Mercier. Using a pointed cotton swab dipped into the White Clay Pot liner, I applied 3 dots on to the face. 

 Shot 6 & 7

The large red circle is painted on the cheek using Kryolan Red 032 Aquacolor with a Laura Mercier Camouflage Powder Brush. A small star shape is painted below with Tarteist Clay Paint Liner in Black  and a Tarte Etch & Sketch Double Ended Bamboo Liner Brush 

A simple line and dot is drawn across the cheek using Kryolan Black Aquacolor and MAC #209 eyeliner brush  With a Tarte Etch & Sketch Double Ended Bamboo Liner Brush, I create two triangular shapes on either side of the line. The blue is once again Tarte "Unicorn Kisses" Clay Pot Waterproof liner, and the red is Kryolan 032 Aquacolor. The base and brow are the same as in previous shots. 

 Shot 8 & 9

The skin is evened out with a light layer of Tarte Amazon of the Sea foundation. Brows are filled in where sparse with Peripera Speedy Eyebrow Auto Pencil #2. The lip is Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Lip Brush in "Poppy Nude." and a Tarte Etch & Sketch Double Ended Bamboo Liner Brush to freehand draw the lines on the hand and fingers. After the lines were set I filled in the colors with a clean eyeliner brush for each color. The colors are Tarte "Unicorn Kisses," "White," and "Mint" Clay Pot Waterproof liner and Kryolan 032 Red Aquacolor 

Shot 10

I use Tarteist Clay Paint Liner in Black and a MAC #209 Eyeliner brush  to freehand draw the lines on the hand and fingers. With a clean MAC #209 brush dipped into the Kryolan 032 Red Aquacolor, I gesturally painted another line across the hand. And then with the tip of the brush I made two dots on the finger.
