Hey guys! I really wanted to create a simple, more wearable, everyday look. Here’s what I did:
I started as usual by waking up my under eye area with The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. I also ran some Smack Beauty Bat Those Lashes Volumizing Lash Serum along my lash line. To get rid of some of the shine on face, I applied some NYX Professional Makeup Shine Killer. I also prepped my lips with some Lip Smart Powerful Hydration for Dry Lips.
To even out my complexion some, I used a Morphe M439 Brush to buff on some NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation in Vanilla. Because my dark circles were worse than normal, I used a Morphe E9 Brush and the orange color from my Ben Nye Media Pro Corrector Wheel under my eyes. Just be careful, because it’s crazy pigmented, so you only need the tiniest amount.
For some depth and definition, I used a NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Stick Highlight and Contour Stick in Medium/Tan. I blended all that out with a dampened Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
For a little cheek color, I patted on some Club Clio Peripera Ah! Much Real My Cushion Blusher in Pleased Pink. I also added a little glow to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose with some NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam.
To set everything, I grabbed a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush and used it to sweep some Jouer Cosmetics Mineral Powder in Perle D’Ivoire all over my face. Over the areas I contoured earlier, I swept some Sephora Matte Perfection Powder Foundation in Deep Mocha using both a Morphe E56 Brush and a Morphe Y22 Brush.
For my cheeks, I used a Sigma F40 Brush to add some more color with some Maybelline Pure Blush in Pure Raisin.
I also added some more more glow by taking a Morphe M500 Brush and sweeping a combination of all three colors from the NYX Professional Makeup Love You So Mochi Highlighting Palette in Arcade Glam along my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.
To fill in and shape my brows today, I grabbed a Morphe E38 Brush and applied some Inglot AMC Brow Liner Gel in 20. To clean up the edges, I very carefully used a Bare Minerals Max Coverage Concealer Brush and some Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation in 209.
Now on to the eyes.
At first, I used my Rommel London Colour Rush Quad Eyeshadow in Bronzed. To create a soft transition, I used a Morphe E22 Brush and the bottom left color. Into my crease, I applied the top right color using a Morphe E17 Brush.
Now I grabbed my Colourpop Golden State I’d Mind Shadow Palette and applies the color in the second column, third row to my eyelids and lower lash line, using a Morphe E32 Brush.
Next I tossed on a couple coats of Grande Mascara Lash Boosting Formula and added some Blinking Beaute Premier Silk Collection Lashes in Mademoiselle with some Duo Eyelash Adhesive.
To complete the look, I applied some Frankie Rose Cosmetics Lipstick in Bella Rose.
And that’s all for today! See you soon!
