Hey guys! I wanted to try and interesting thing for you today. I had my nine year old son Aidan do my makeup. Then, using the same exact product, I did my makeup. Above on the left is his take, and on the right is mine.
Here’s a closer look:
We started by waking up my under eye area with The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. We also ran some Smack Beauty Bat Those Lashes Volumizing Lash Serum along my upper lash line (this was scary when he did it, but he did manage to not poke me in the eye).
Next we applied some Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips to hydrate them, and prepped my face for makeup by spraying on some Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray.
To even out my complexion, we applied some Jouer Cosmetics Luminizing Moisture Tint in Pearl, blending it in with a dampened Beauty Blender.
To correct my dark circles, we applied some LA Girl Cosmetics Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Yellow Corrector, blending that in with another dampened Beauty Blender.
To add some definition, we used a NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Stick Highlight and Contour Stick in Medium/Tan, this time using a dampened Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to blend it.
For some cheek color, we took another dampened Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to dab on some Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Creme Colour Concentrate in Grandma. For a little glow, we used our finger to apply some Inika Light Reflect Highlighting Creme in my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.
To set everything, we used a Morphe E52 Brush to dust some RCMA No-Color Powder all over.
We also went over the contoured areas with some Palladio Matte Bronzer in Teeny Bikini, using both a Morphe E56 Brush and a Morphe Y22 Brush.
To add more cheek color, we used a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush to add some Cargo Cosmetics Water Resistant Blush in Los Cabos. We also used a Morphe M501 Brush to add more glow to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose with some Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Illuminati.
To fill in and shape my brows today, we used an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some NYX Professional Makeup Eyebrow Cake Powder in Dark Brown.
For the eyes today, we chose my Almay Intense I-Color Satin-I Kit Powder Shadow in Trio for Hazels.
We started my using a Morphe E32 Brush to apply the Cream color to my brow bone.
Next, we used a Real Techniques Domed Shadow Brush to add the brown color into my crease.
Finally, we used a Morphe E14 Brush to add the light pink color to my eyelids.
For liner today, we used a Palladio Felt-Tip Eyeliner Pen. This was so scary for me when Aidan was applying. I think he was a bit nervous also, because he used too light of a touch, and it hardly shows.
We tossed a couple coats of Grande Mascara Lash Boosting Formula on. Here Aidan made kind of a mess.
Next, we lined and filled in my lips with NYX Professional Makeup Liner in Mauve.
We finished the look with some NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake.
Overall, he didn’t do bad. Blending had room for improvement, and a steady hand would help. I think this takes me back to my days of first experimenting with makeup.
I hope you all had as much fun as we did! See you soon!
