Good morning Tuesday!
With Spring and Summer approaching I get oddly excited about revising my make-up routine. But let’s not get carried away because when it comes to my make-up, I’m still a plain Jane all year round. And to be frank, most of my products stay the same, well “same but diff….” I switch out some things, I found some new things, and I do less things. Ya know?
So first things first
A year ago this girl had no intentions of ever trying primer. But thanks to my Sephora Playbook Subscription; I’m a huge advocate. The Smashbox Photo Finish to be exact.I squeeze little dots and rub under and around my eyes and only there because I don’t use foundation. IF I was a foundation wearer I’d use this over my entire face because anything used on top of this looks sheer and flawless!
If they ever discontinued this line, I just don’t know what I’d do. Maybelline’s FITme! Conealer is my absolute go-toNow I’ve been using the same shade this whole time (the bottom one) because I’m still at my palest *cries* I need the sun. Anyhow, I just do triangles under my eye like so
I fill and shade in with Maybellines Brow Define and Fill duo. It’s super easy to use; one side has a mechanical liner and the other side has the blender
MECHANICAL EYE LINER
My go-to one for years now is the ALMAY one in dark brown. I always use brown just because I prefer a softer “close to no make-up” look. I apply this to ONLY the top water line of my eyes. I don’t do my bottom water line.
I just recently bought Maybelline’s Lash Sensational mascara and I’ve fallen in love with it. Its volume in the sense that it’s bold rather than dramatic which I like for work. I start by doing one coat of it. (PS- I know I mentioned above that I don’t do my bottom water line but I will for work or if I need to be more dressy)
I talk about this liner over and over and over. NYX Liquid Matte Liner. Which is what I use to draw in my wings.
*From there I curl my lashes and add another coat of mascara and curl them once more when it’s dried*
HIGHLIGHTER AND BLUSH
I retire the bronzer and pull out the highlighter.
For highlighter I’ve been using my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal
And Fiona Stiles Blush in Maiden Lane, which is a peachy pink tone.
And for the most part the final look looks like this. Except the lighting is extraordinarily bright here so you can’t even see the highlighter and blush but just know it’s there 🙂
AND this whole look takes me a solid 7 minutes if I could guess.
Oh lastly, I’m still loving my NYX Lip Lingerie in Corset
And that’s it!
