Everyday Makeup RoutineJanuary 30, 2014
Step 1: Hourglass Face Primer
-normally I pump 1 or 2 pumps on the back of my hand and then apply to my face with my hands.
Step 2: Chanel Vitalumiére Aqua
-shake well, and then apply to back of hand, then I use my Mac 130 brush, and I first apply it to my cheeks, nose and chin, and then blend all over.
Step 3: Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
-color is in Creamy Natural, and I use my Sephora face brush and press the powder around my nose and chin and then apply gentle around the rest of my face.
Step 4: Laura Mercier Bronzing Powder
-color is in Dune Bronze, I need to get a contour brush(i'm working on finding one currently) but in the meantime I am using the Sormé blush 951 brush to lightly contour and then I use the Sephora face brush to dust onto my temples and forehead and then under my jawline and neck.
Step 5: Givenchy Blush
-color is in Le Prisme, I use my Mac 168 blush brush to apply to the cheekbones. I tend to dip the brush into each color but use the brightest/darkest color in the palette on the backs of my cheeks and then use the lighter colors on the apples of my cheeks.
Step 5: Pro Longwear Paint Pot
-color is in Soft Ochre, for this step I rub my finger in the pot just a tad and rub it onto my eyelids. (quite simple)
Step 6: Anastasia Brow Fix
-simply rub the stick onto eyebrows and then I use my Mac 266 brush with the Mac eyeshadow color Charcoal Brown.
Step 7: Mac Eye Palette
-for this step it can vary so i'm just gonna tell you what I use where and the colors but I don't do this all everyday. Normally I will use Mac Dazzlelight first with my Mac 252 eyeshadow brush and press it onto the inner corner of my lid and then I apply Mac Brulé all over the lid. Then I will apply Mac Wedge with my Mac 217 on the outer corner of my eye and a bit smudged into the lid. Then I will apply Mac Charcoal Brown with the same eyeshadow brush into the crease. Then for my darkest color I will sometimes use if I want a much smokier eye and add that to the outer corner and a bit in the crease.
Step 8: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
-simply add a line onto the lid closest to the lash line as possible and then if you want a cat eye you can easily to that as well.
Step 9: Chanel Le Volume Mascara (sample) & Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes
- I use the Chanel on my top lashes and the Maybelline on the bottom lashes because the Big Eyes mascara has a bottom lash brush. Sometimes I will also use Maybelline The Falsies regular (waterproof) and apply that on top of the Chanel or by itself because my lashes tend to not stay up and the waterproof helps.
Step 10: Bobbi Brown Corrector & Chanel Long Lasting Concealer
- Bobbi Brown corrector is in Light Bisque, and I apply that first mainly on the inner part under my eye with my Bobbi Brown concealer brush and then blend out. Then I apply a "V" shape of the Chanel and blend it out with my Sephora Beauty Blender.
