Hey guys! This is the look I created for you this week. Here’s how I got it:
I woke up my eyes with The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. Then, because my lashes have been growing like weeds and I want it to stay that way, I ran some Grande Lash-MD Lash Enhancing Serum along my lash line. I also used a disposable spoolie to coat my lashes with Jamaican Black Castor Oil and Vitamin E Oil. I also got some hydration on to my lips using Pure Paw Paw Ointment in Grape.
I primed my face using NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Primer. I also used some NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation in Natural to help even out my skin tone. I blended that to death with a dampened Beauty Blender.
To fight the dreaded under eye circles, I applied a combination of Palladio Under Eyes Disguise Full Coverage Concealer in Lemonade and Vanilla Latte. I once again blended that with a dampened Beauty Blender.
To cream highlight and contour my face, I used my NYX Professional Makeup Sculpt and Highlight Face Duo in Taupe/Ivory. For my nose, I used a NYX Professional Makeup Micro Contour Pencil in Light. Then guess what! I used my dampened Beauty Blender again!
Next, I grabbed a Japonesque Fluff Concealer Brush and dabbed some OCC Creme Colour Concentrate in Grandma onto my cheeks. I the used my fingers to dab that in and blend it, since I feel like the warmth of my fingers helps this particular product work best. For some glow, I applied some Sephora Radiant Luminizing Drops in Starlight to my cheek bones and the bridge of my nose. I blended this out also with my fingers. To set everything, I swept some RCMA Colorless Powder on with a Japonesque Go To Brush. To get a little definition to my face, I used a Japonesque Kumadori Blending Brush and a Morphe G18 Brush to lightly contour with Frankie Rose Cosmetics Pro Contour Palette. I blended that until my arms hurt with a Morphe e52 Brush. Today I decided to bake. I’ve been experimenting back and forth some and I think I actually prefer not baking, but this was a day where I decided to go with it. I applied some Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Buff. After a few moments, I used a Morphe e41 Brush to dust away the excess. For some cheek color, I used a Sigma f15 Brush to sweep some Frankie Rose Cosmetics Blush in Peachy Pink along my cheeks. I blended again with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush.
Now for the good stuff. I filled in and shaped my brows with an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some Inglot AMC Brow Liner Gels in 16 and 20. To clean up the edges some, I used a Morphe m508 Brush and a tiny bit of Dermablend Cover Creme in Natural Beige. I swept on some Model in a Bottle Long Lasting Eyebrow Sealer and combed through my brows with a Morphe m115 Brush.
As a transition shade, I applied some NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Sex Kitten with a Morphe e22 Brush.
To give my crease a tiny bit of definition, I grabbed a Morphe r41 and applied some Kiko Cosmetics High Pigmented Eyeshadow in Infinity.
To give my lids a nice sticky base, I used my fingertip to pay some NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer onto them. Then I used a Morphe e32 Brush to pay on some NYX Professional Makeup Pigment in Metallic Velvet.
The Final Touches
As usual, I said a prayer and doused my face in Model in a Bottle Makeup Setting Spray.
For even more glow (because a girl can rarely have too much!), I used a Morphe m501 Brush to add some Ben Nye Lumiere Lux Powder in Golden Apricot to my cheekbones and along the bridge of my nose.
I threw on some Velvet 59 My Fair Lashes Mascara (which don’t buy. I hate it!).
For my lips, I couldn’t decide, so I ended up using two. I first put on some NYX Professional Makeup Suede Matte Lipliner in Soft Spoken and added a little NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in Crystallized Metal just to the center of my lips.
And that’s all! I’ll see you guys soon!
