So since I already did a post on the products I love for a travel-friendly makeup look, I decided to show exactly how I use each product! This works not only for travel, but for anyone looking to simplify their makeup routine or just someone starting out with makeup. In case you haven’t seen the afore mentioned post, here’s a link to the post and a picture of each product:
The first step is to start with a clean face
And then I put on the Hourglass Primer and Smashbox Under Eye Primer
and then blend that into my skin with my fingers.
After primer comes base, for which I used the Urban Decay Naked Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Light Neutral all over my face.
Once I blend that in I put on my under eye concealer, the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch in Radiant,
and then I blend that all in (the face concealer with a brush and the under eye just with my fingers).
Once that’s done I move onto the eyes. I put the Urban Decay Concealer on my lids to cancel out any veins that show through my eyelids.
Then I fill in my eyebrows with the Nyx Micro Brow Pencil in Chocolate. I don’t do anything crazy, I just shape them up and make them look nice.
After that I throw on some Benefit Roller Lash Mascara on the upper and lower lashes to make my eyes really pop!
To complete the eyes, I add a little bit of BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal to the inner corners to brighten and complete the look.
With the eyes completed, I go back to the face and add some of my NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny along the temples, down my neck, and across my cheekbones to add some life back into my face.
The bronzer adds dimension, but I really like to go all out with giving my face some shape, and I like to use BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal on my cheekbones, nose, chin, cupid’s bow, temples, and center of my forehead (basically everywhere).
To finish the entire look I put on my Dior Addict Lip Glow to give a slight flush to my lips and finish the makeup look.
Hope you enjoy the makeup look! If you have suggestions as to what I should do, just let me know in a comment!
