Since my eyes were the focus of my look today, I really wanted to make sure that my skin was flawless. After moisturizing, I began by applying the L’Oreal Studio Secrets Anti-Redness Primer to color correct. This product goes on very sheer, but it does cover up the redness once it sets. I applied this to my cheeks, nose and any blemishes. I also applied the Hard Candy Sheer Envy Skin Perfecting Primer onto my entire face, focusing especially on the areas where my foundations tends to settle or fade – the tip of my nose and the creases around my mouth. Press the primer into your skin to increase the longevity of it.
While the primers set up, I moved on to my eyes. I applied Revlon Photoready Concealer in Fair onto my eyelid and in under my eye in an inverted triangular shape. I blended this out with the Real Techniques Foundation Brush. Using the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, I applied this to the inner half of my eye and blended it out with my finger, keeping it in that inner half. The first eyeshadow that I used was Urban Decay’s Graffiti on an ELF Angled Eye Shadow Brush. I patted this color over the inner half of my eye. I used the chocolate brown shade from my Madeleine Mono Techni-Colors Eyeshadow Collection on a Real Techniques Crease Brush to give my eyes a bit of dimension. I applied this color to the outer half of my eye and into my crease. Using the pale green shade from that same collection, I applied it to the center of my eye to blend the brown and bright green together. I didn’t apply any eyeliner today, so I carefully applied two generous coats of Ulta Legendary Lengths mascara and Maybelline Mega Plush Volum’ Express mascara. I wasn’t too concerned with getting mascara on the brown eye shadow, but I did get a little on the green which I didn’t want. I let the mascara dry a bit and then using the brush, that I applied the green eye shadow with, I gently rubbed the mascara off of my skin.
Using a dampened sponge wedge, I applied the L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Alabaster all over my face. The wedge does soak up some product, which makes it a little sheerer. But it does give a very natural looking finish to the skin. I applied a little more concealer under my eyes, blended it out and set it with the Cover Girl Clean Oil Control Pressed Powder in Buff Beige with a Real Techniques Setting Brush. To set my concealer, I use patting motions and then I quickly sweep over it for even coverage. To bronze and contour my face, I used the Cover Girl TruBlend Fixstick in Medium Deep. I drew one line under my cheek bones, 3 small lines on the edges of my forehead and two parallel lines in order to contour my nose. I blended the lines out with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. I then set my foundation with the same Cover Girl powder and a Real Techniques Multi-Tasking Brush. Using that same brush, I applied the Maybelline Fit Me Blush in Light Pink onto the apples of my cheeks.
For my eyebrows, I lightly filled them in with the Maybelline Expert Wear Eyebrow Pencil in Light Brown and set them with the Bonnebell Eye Style Mascara in Transparent. I used the same Jumbo Eye Pencil again on my water line. Using an EcoTools Angled Eyeliner Brush, I pulled Graffiti around my inner corner and along the inner half of my lower lash line. With the same brush, I applied the brown shade from Madeleine Mono to the outer half of my lower lash line. I applied one coat of mascara.
For my lips, I used the Kardashian Beauty En-Joystick Lip Lacquer in Modern Mauve. I topped this with the BonBons Flavored Lip Juicer – the mauvey-brown one. I set my makeup with the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray and I was out the door.
