I wanted to share my complete makeup routine with you guys, start to finish and everything in between! Makeup is such a great thing, not to take away from natural beauty but a way to enhance your own beauty! No one is perfect and I think its important that we never forget that! I love playing with different products and trying new products, and yes my skin pays for this but I love sharing this with you guys!
I had a lot of fun doing this post and it was pretty cool to photograph this look step by step!
I hope you guys enjoy!
Step 1: Wash & Moisturize
Products Used: Clinique 3 Step System
Step 2: Primer & Foundation
Tip: I like to use a thin layer of primer in my T zone, under my eyes and around my chin and lips!
Step 3: Eyebrows
Products Used: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Ebony, Lined and finished with Maybelline Concealer
Tip: I use a small angled liner brush with my dip brow, it allows for straight lines and is small enough to fill in with as well. I use this exact brush here! I am currently trying a morph brush and will let you know how it goes!
Step 4: Eyes
Urban Decay Eye Primer in Minor Sin
Tip: Always use a eye primer is you are putting on a fair share of powder, easiest explanation to why?! Protecting your investment, eyeshadow is expensive!!
Step 5: Concealer
Tip: Waiting to conceal after you have done your eye makeup will allow you to get rid of any fall out as well as give you the nice crisp line for a wing liner!
Step 6: Blend, Set & Contour
Damp Beauty Blender
Tip: I always use a damp beauty blender. I use it to apply my foundation and concealer every single day. Having it dap allows for a better finish and less product being absorbed into the sponge material! One you have blended out your concealer, always set it with a powder. This will help avoid any fine lines or appearances of wrinkles!
Step 7: Blush & Eyeliner
Tip: I want to do a tutorial on a wing liner as soon as my good lens is back! I like to start my lining my inner corner and then lining the wing itself. From there I slowly colour in the lines!
Step 8: Mascara
Tip: I like using a serum prior to my mascara, I feel like it makes my lashes fuller while wearing mascara and it also makes it easier to take the mascara off!
Step 9: Lips & Accessories
