Everyday Makeup Walkthrough

These are my go to products and techniques that I rely on everyday!

PREP

After I wash my face, I apply this moisturizer all over my face (a little goes a long way) and rub it in. Once it is absorbed I do not put any makeup products on my face for about five minutes to create a barrier between my makeup and skin.

Eminence Organics Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer, 2 Ounce

Eminence Coconut Moisturizer

Inglot Mattifying Primer

This primer is fantastic for reducing shine anywhere on your face! I would not recommend this primer if you have dry skin. This primer extends the wear of your makeup, prevents shine and keeps your makeup looking matte.

FACE

Kat Von D's Lock-It Foundation | Kat Von D Beauty

Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation

This is a full coverage foundation, if you prefer lighter coverage I would recommend NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. I wear Light 44 (Cool) and Light 45 (Neutra)l in Kat Von D Foundation. These are very light foundations in color, and the neutral foundation has more of a yellow undertone. I apply this foundation with a damp Beauty Blender.

Shape Tape Contour Concealer | Tarte Cosmetics

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

This my holy grail concealer, it is medium-full coverage, yet lightweight. I apply this concealer underneath my eyes, in between my eyebrows, above my lip, on my chin and spot treat any redness or pimples. I blend this in with the same beauty blender I used for my foundation. Use stippling motions (bouncing up and down in contiguous motion) to blend in any liquid products.

Favorite Drugstore Setting Powders – Marina Lee Beauty

Coty Airspun Loose Powder

I love this powder it is inexpensive and you get a lot of powder compared to other brands. I bake my under eyes with a separate damp beauty blender. Baking is a method used to set foundation/concealer, you pick up powder on a damp beauty blender and apply it to the area you want to set. You leave the powder in place for a few minutes to allow the powder to trap the heat and “bake” your concealer. Tutorial on “How to Bake”. After my concealer has baked I take a Cle de Peau Powder Puff and pick up loose powder and pat the rest of my face to set it.

Inglot Pressed Powder

I then take a Morphe powder brush and pick up a little bit of pressed powder and run that all over my face to dust off any excess loose powder and to set my makeup once again.

Anastasia Contour Kit

I use the Anastasia Powder Contour Kit in Light to Medium. I pick up a small amount of the Bottom middle shade (Fawn) with a Morphe Eyeshadow Brush and contour my nose by deepening the sides of my nose. Tutorial on “How to Contour” If you just want to purchase one shade from the kit you can purchase individual pans online.

Makeup Forever Highlighter

This highlighter is highly reflective but not chalky or too sparkly. I take my finger and pick up some product and run it down the bridge of my nose. I sometimes highlight my cheekbones with a fan brush.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer

I use this bronzer in the shade light. I use this bronzer all over to warm up my face. I apply it with PRO Sephora Bronzer Brush.

Freddom System Face Blush 52

Inglot Blush

I apply this blush in shade 52 with a Morphe Blush Brush to my nose and the apples of my cheeks, then I sweep the small excess of blush back towards my ear from the apples of my cheeks. You want the majority of the color on the apples of your cheeks.

Makeup Fixer (50 ml)

Inglot Makeup Fixer

I spray a generous amount all over my face from about 12 inches away, this spray sets your makeup and it also melts any powder into your face to make the powdery look disappear. I then take a book or a makeup palette and fan my face to set my makeup, I find this helps prolong my look.

EYES

Amazon.com : Anastasia Brow Powder Duo - Dark Brown ...

Anastasia Brow Powder Duo

I apply this brow powder with the Anastasia Brow Brush. I pick up the powder and slowly build the shape of my brow by first creating a line at the front of my brow, then adding some powder to the top and bottom and then darkening the brows towards the outer edge. I use the spooly to blend the powder at the end.

Mascara | Benefit Cosmetics

Benefit They’re Mascara

This is a thicker mascara, but I love it! I start by curling my lashes, then applying Benefit They’re real primer and then adding the mascara on top.

THE LOOK IS NOW DONE!

    1. I love Inglot products, they are affordable and great quality! I have sampled their matte lipsticks in a store and they were dry and chalky, along with their lip pencils (maybe that is just how the matte is). I was not impressed though.
