Today I am quickly sharing what I put on my face every single day, make-up wise. I didn't really include skincare because I can easily dedicate a separate post to that. These products are what I use on my face mostly all the time, and I'm going to go through step by step how I apply them all.
P.S Sorry for the lack of style posts lately! It's seriously 20 degrees in Boston today and I can't even walk from my car to my house without clenching from the wind never mind go shoot an outfit somewhere. I will hopefully shoot something later this week!
Ok, so first after priming my face and moisturizing, I go in with my Make-Up Forever HD foundation in the shade N115. I'll typically use 3-4 half pumps. I use the Morphe M439 Foundation brush to blend the foundation on my face and my neck. After foundation, I'll use my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Vanilla, and dot my under eyes, chin, nose, and any blemishes with the concealer. I will then take a Beauty Blender (either wet or dry, depends on how sheer you want the concealer) and pat the concealer into my face.
After concealer, I'll use my Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder to set everything and make my face matte. To blend the powder, I use my Make-Up Forever Large Powder Brush. After setting my face, I will use my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette with my Nars Kabuki brush, and smooth blush onto the apples of my cheeks. Then I'll use my Highbeam Highlighter by Benefit and dot it on my nose, cupid's bow, chin, and the tops of my cheeks, and I blend that in with my finger.
If I feel like contouring that day, I'll use my Soleil Tan De Chanel with my Nars Ita Brush and contour right under my cheekbones, my jawline, and either side of my temple, and blend that out with my powder brush. After my face is completely done, I go in and fill in my brows with the Anastasia Brow Wiz in the shade Caramel and then go over them with the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel.
After my brows, I'll go in with my Lorac Pro Palette. Before applying shadows, I usually use my Nars primer (not pictured). It totally depends on where I'm going that day, but my eye look obviously depends on what I'm doing. If I'm going for a more minimal look, I'll use my Zoeva Blender Brush to just sweep a single color all over the lid. If I want a more dramatic look, I'll use the Zoeva brush, along with a Make-Up Forever Large Blender (not pictured) and my MAC #217 and #219 to create a bolder look. After the eyeshadow is done, I will line my water-line with a random pencil, then line my upper lid with the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. It has a great felt tip and is extremely black, which is perfect. After my liner, I obviously apply my favorite mascara, which is Benefit's They're Real.
After my face is done, I go in with my Fresh Brown Sugar Lip Scrub to get off all dead skin from my lips, then either apply a lipstick if I'm going out, or my Rosebud Salve if I'm going to work or to run errands!
*I am in no way a professional make-up artist! Just sharing how I usually do my make-up. I understand that what I do is not always considered "the right way", but it's what works best for me!
