Ok my friends, I have been asked to do a little tutorial on how I do my makeup every day. What's my beauty regimen? Let me tell you- I really only put makeup on once a week to be honest. I usually put mascara on every day, MAYBE some foundation, but I am too lazy and busy to take the time to do my makeup. But when I do, I spend only about 10 minutes, and its super easy. So I don't know why I don't do it more often. Here is what I do to put my face on when I am going for a super natural, easy look.
This is what I look like before I put my makeup on. Luckily, I am pretty acne free right now. I will credit that to my desert dry skin.. grr. I have white eyelashes and my eyebrows are super light too. And I swear my right eye is bigger than my left.. But that's a whole another story.
For moistureizer, I use cetaphil. I have tried multiple moisturizers including Mary Kay and honestly, this one works the best for me. I love it! You can get it at any drug store.
After I put my moisturizer on, I let it dry/soak in for a minute. Then I use my foundation Primer. This is a MUST if you want your makeup to look smooth, even, and stay on. I really like the Mary Kay Brand but I have also tried bare minerals primer and love that too. The thing I like about this is that it as SPF 15 in it. You really only need a pea size. A little bit goes a long way. Rub it in all over your face.
Then, I apply a lash primer. Love this one by Mary Kay. I've never tried different brands in this though so I'm open to suggestions if you all know of a better one! I like lash primer because it bulks up your lashes. My lashes are so fine and short and thin that I need all the help I can get!
After I apply that, I usually let it dry, then curl my lashes. Currently I cant find my eyelash curler, so I will have to do without. Eyeslipsface.com has my favorite curler for just a dollar. I usually heat up my lash curler with a blow dryer real fast before I curl my lashes.
Then, I apply an eyeshadow primer, that I got HERE.
This helps your eyeshadow stay on, and in my case, covers up the veins and discoloration on my eyelids. Just spread it all on then rub in. (this photo was before I rubbed it in.)
Then comes your concealer. Many people apply concealer very very wrong... Here are some tips on how to apply it if you need some: http://somakemeupbeforeyougogo.blogspot.com/2013/07/makeup-tip-tuesday-dark-eye-bags-begone.html
I currently am using this concealer from ELF
I usually use a brush to apply mine. This brush is a brush I got from Bare Minerals.
This is after I blended all the concealer. Normally you would put concealer on after you put your foundation, but I didnt have much to conceal (luckily my skin is clear right now) so I just did it under.
I am LOVING this eyeshadow from ELF. It seriously lasts all day, and only costs $3!! buy it HERE
All I did was apply it to my lower eyelid. (yes, I know my brows need waxed. BAD.) Tips on applying eyeshadow can be found here: http://www.pinterest.com/hefsgal/apply-eyeshadow/
Then, I went ahead and added a peachy color on the inner eye just to add some color.
I used the peach one in the middle.
Then applied this right under my brow.
This is how it turned out.
After applying eyeshadow, I used a brush to brush away any eyeshadow that got under my eyes. I recently found this FIT Maybelline makeup that I love. Its so light weight, doesnt make my skin dry, and is affordable. So then, add this all over my face.
And thats what it looks like covered. You can use a foundation brush instead of your fingers if you want more of a full coverage look.
Now on to contouring and highlighting. You can get tips on how to do that here: http://www.pinterest.com/terrresa/contour-and-highlight/
I just use some mary kay mineral powder to contour with, and some pressed powder to highlight with.
Then, I add some blush. I believe this is Elf's blush peachy peach..? The sticker came off.
Then I use an angle brush and some brown eyeshadow to apply some eyeliner. I wanted super simple.
You can hardly see the liner, but it is there.
And now add the mascara, or false lashes. I love false lashes but I currently dont have any. I also applied a lip gloss that was just a light pink.
And that's it!
Hope you enjoyed it! Nothing Fancy :)
