Hey guys! Bringing you a warm, simple look today.
I started by fighting the lack of sleep by applying The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG to my under eye area. I also ran some Smack Beauty Bat Those Lashes Volumizing Lash Serum along my upper lash line, so hopefully they’ll continue to be healthy.
To prep my face for makeup, I sprayed some Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray all over. I also hydrated my lips with Grande Lips Hydrating Lip Plumper.
Using a Real Techniques Essential Foundation Brush, I applied a mixture of the orange and peach colors from my Ben Nye Media Pro Corrector Wheel under my eyes to hide my dark circles. I then evened out my skin tone by applying L’Oréal Infallible Pro Matte 24HR Foundation in Natural Buff, blending it out until my arm hurt with a dampened Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
Now it’s time to get some definition into my face. I used NYX Professional Makeup Sculpt and Highlight Face Duo in Taupe/Ivory to cream highlight and contour. I used an e.l.f. Cosmetics Contouring Brush to blend the taupe color and a Japonesque Fluff Concealer Brush to blend to ivory color.
For a little flush to my cheeks, I used my fingers to add some Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint in Very Charming to the apples of my cheeks, just letting the warmth of my fingers doing the blending. I also added some glow to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose by using my fingertips to tap some Manna Kadar Sheer Glo Shimmer Lotion On them.
To set all that cream product, I grabbed a Morphe E41 Brush, and used it to sweep some Jouer Cosmetics Mineral Powder in Perle Naturel all over my face. I also used both a Morphe Y22 Brush and a Morphe E56 Brush to go over the areas I earlier cream contoured to give them more depth with Palladio Matte Bronzer in Teeny Bikini.
For some more cheek color, I used a Sigma F15 Brush to sweep some Palladio Matte Blush in Velvetine along my cheeks. I also added some more glow (duh!) using a Morphe M501 Brush and some LA Girl Cosmetics Strobe Lite Strobing Powder in 110 Watt.
To fill in and shape my brows today, I used a Morphe M413 Brush and some Inglot AMC Brow Liner Gel in 20, keeping it darker at the tail and lighter at the front. I then used a Morphe M508 Brush to clean up the edges with some Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation in 209.
And now for the eyes! I started with a Morphe R39 Brush, using it to sweep some Kiko Cosmetics Infinity High Pigmented Eyeshadow in 234 into the creases of my eyes. I then dampened a Morphe E14 Brush with a little Mehron Mixing Liquid, before using it to pack some Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadow in 82 on to my eyelids.
After adding a couple coats of Grande Mascara Lash Boosting Formula, I decided it just wasn’t enough. (Of course… cue eye roll.) at that point I decided to add the top pair of lashes from the Violet Voss Eye Believe in Unicorns Lash Set, attaching them with some Duo Brush On Adhesive with Vitamins.
To complete the look, I used a Smashbox Retractable Lip Brush to apply some Inglot Freedom System Square Lipstick in 79.
And that’s all, y’all! See you soon!
