Hey guys! A simple but fun look for you today!
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 upper lash line.
To prep my face for makeup and hide a little redness, I patted on some e.l.f. Cosmetics Tone Adjusting Face Primer Face Primer in Neutralizing Green. I also hydrated my lips with some Lip Smart Powerful Hydration for Dry Lips.
To even out my complexion today, I grabbed a Sigma 3DHD Kabuki Brush and used it to buff on some Frankie Rose Cosmetics Matte Perfection Foundation in Vintage. I also used a NYX Professional Makeup Sculpt and Highlight Face Duo in Taupe/Ivory to add some definition into my face with a little cream highlighting and contouring, using a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to blend it all in.
For my nose, however, I decided to use a NYX Professional Makeup Micro-Contour Duo Pencil in Light, simply blending with my fingers.
I also used my fingers to add just a tiny bit of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Creme Colour Concentrate in Grandma to my cheeks, and a little Inika Light Reflect Highlighting Creme to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.
To set everything, I grabbed a Morphe E41 Brush and swept some Jouer Cosmetics Mineral Powder in Perle D’Ivoire all over. I also went over the contoured areas with both a Morphe M530 Brush and a Morphe R41 Brush and a little Palladio Matte Bronzer in Teeny Bikini.
Now this is where I first started with the BH Cosmetics Blushed Neutrals 26 Color Eyeshadow and Blush Palette. I used a Sigma F15 Brush to sweep the second blush along my cheeks.
For more of the flow you know I can’t get enough of, I used a Morphe M501 Brush to add some LA Girl Strobe Lite Strobing Powder in 110 Watt along my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.
To fill in and shape my brows today, I used a Morphe M413 Brush and some Inglot AMC Brow Liner Gel in 20. I set that by using a Morphe M115 Brush to come some Model in a Bottle Long Lasting Eyebrow Sealer through them. I also used a Younique Cream Shadow Brush to clean up the edges some with a little Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation in 209.
Now for the fun part! Here I used the BH Cosmetics Blushed Neutrals Palette again. I started by creating a transition shade with a Sigma E40 Brush and the far left blush.
To start some color in the crease, I used a Morphe R39 Brush and the color in the seventh column, first row.
To deepen the crease some more, I used a Morphe G18 Brush and the color in the fifth column, third row.
For my eyelids, I wanted to do two colors. Using an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush, I packed the blush on the far right intro the inner and outer corners. Using another e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush, I added the color in the fourth column, second row into the center of my eyelids.
I wanted something similar for the lower lash line, so I used a Sigma E65 Brush to smudge the far right blush onto the outer lower lash line. I also used a Sigma E75 Brush to add the same color from the center of my eyelids onto the inner lower lash line.
Wanting a pretty dramatic wing, but not overly dramatic, I decided black was out. I went instead with NYX Professional Makeup Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Smokey Gray.
For my waterline, I wanted a bit of a pop, so I added some Cynthia Rowley Eyeliner in Sky Blue.
I added a couple coats of L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara, and throw on some Violet Voss Premium Lashes in Vamptress using Duo Eyelash Adhesive.
Next I lined and filled in my lips with NYX Professional Makeup Suede Matte Lip Liner in Soft-Spoken. I finished off the look with Estée Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Burgandy.
And that’s all! I’ll see you soon!
