Hey everyone, it’s been a while but I am back. Not only am I back but I come to you all with something different from me, a makeup tutorial. I have been wanting to post this for some time but finding the motivation to post is really frustrating. I love blogging and being a part of the community and this is kind of my passion, my baby. It’s something I would like to do long-term as I love sharing these kinds of things. And, I mean, we all have a passion, right. So in saying all that, let’s take a look at how I do my makeup.
First, I want to say that this is not my everyday look but rather something fun for a day out. Prep is important for flawless makeup so always take care of your skin first. Without skin care, makeup application won’t be so smooth, so to speak. Now let’s get into it.
Step one: I use e.l.f. clear brow and lash mascara to prep, well, my brows and lashes. This step is optional.
Step two: I use Colourpop no filter concealer on my eyelids as a base for my eye shadow and blend it well. I’m in the shade medium dark 38. After this I just set with a pressed powder so I have a smooth, flawless base to lay my eye shadow.
Step 3A: I start my eye shadow look by using the Urban Decay Naked Basic Eye shadow Palette in the shade W.O.S all over my lid. Then I carve out my crease with the NYX HD Photo Concealer Wand in the shade Glow.
Step 3B: I finish off my eye shadow look by adding in some sparkle using Colourpop Pressed Powder Shadow in Chauffeur to my outer lid and blending with my finger. This color is gorgeous btw! All that is left for the eyes is some mascara and next it’s time for the skin.
Step 1: Prime and conceal. I use Laura Geller Spackle Hydrating Primer. I then use the same colourpop concealer to conceal the under eye area.
Step 2: Foundation and Highlight. So now I spread my foundation all over my face. I’m using Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water in medium dark. Next I’m taking the NYX concealer in glow to highlight the parts of my face I want to bring out. Then I blend, blend, blend.
Step 3: Bronze, Highlight and Powder. Now it’s time for the fun part, sculpting and highlighting. I used Colourpop super shock cheek bronzer in poolside ( no longer available). For highlighting the cheekbones and brow bone areas I used Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Butterfly Beach. To set the face I used NYX HD Finishing Powder.
I lined my lips using NYX Slim Lip Pencil in brown. Next, I applied Colourpop lippie stix in pillow talk (no longer available).
