Today I’m going to talk about my makeup. Mainly my lip cream. I’m absolutely obsessed with it. I’ve had it for so long, and it is definitely my all time, go to lip cream! It is actually not to bad of a price at $14 especially for how long it last. Unless you lose it within that amount of time because thats what I usually do. I lose my lip products before I ever fully use them. Ha! But hey it happens I guess! I have tried so so so many other lip products and and this one just works the best for me. The one I am wearing is from Sephora, it is the color, 13 Marvelous Mauve. I love this shade. It is such a pretty pink and can be worn with so much. It goes so well with my skin tone. If you have a similar skin tone to mine I would definitely try this color! You will love it.
I’m no makeup artist, but I thought I would share with you what I all use for my makeup, and how I apply it. Maybe you will find something here that’s helpful for you!
First I apply shine free primer all over my face and eye lids to help keep my makeup looking fresh all day. I use the shine free kind because my face tends to get oily and that primer helps.
I start with my eye makeup. I put concealer on my eye lids before I apply eye shadow because it makes the color of the eye shadow stand out more. I usually use brown tones on my eyes. I start with a light tan on the base, then I put on a couple shades darker in the middle of the eyelid and on the outer corner I put a dark brown. Like an ombre eyelid from light to dark. I use a black eyeliner pencil to put on the lining under my eyelids and then I use a liquid eyeliner on top of my eyelid at my lash line. (Sometimes I will do a winged eyeliner, sometimes I don’t). I do my eyes first cause sometimes the eyeshadow will get on my cheeks and it gets messy. That way I can just wipe it right off.
Now on to the face. I use a liquid foundation I put all over my face. Then a powder foundation on top of that. After those I use the same concealer that I used on my eyelids and put a triangle shape under each of my eyes and some on my forehead right in-between my eyebrows and a straight line down the bridge of my nose. I blend that in around the edges with a beauty blender. Next I use setting powder over my concealer to set it in.
While I let that setting powder set on my face I do my eyebrows. I use eyebrow powder to shape my brows.
Last I do my lashes. First I put on my mascara on top and bottom lashes. Then if I feel like getting really dolled up I’ll add some lashes! I like to do Ardell Baby Wispies for a more natural eyelash look , they are not to long but makes my lashes look thicker. Otherwise when I want it to be more noticeable and want them extra long I’ll use Ardell Demi Wispies.
Ok I lied that’s not last. Last I do my lips! You already know the details on that!
Hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope it was somewhat helpful. This is what I do for my everyday makeup and it works great for me! If I’m doing anything wrong and you can give me advice, please do! I would love to know your input. Just post it in the comments!
