Hey everyone! This I’ve brought you a super simple look. Really it’s just because I’ve been wanting to rock this highlighter, and I wanted that to be the main focus today.
I woke my under eye area up with The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + ECGC. This stuff works wonders! I ran some Grande Lash-MD Lash Enhancing Serum along my lash line. I applied some Pure Par Paw Ointment in Strawberry to hydrate my lips while I work on my face. I also used a disposable spoolie to put some of my homemade lash serum (really just some Jamaican Black Castor Oil and some Vitamin E Oil).
I primed and protected my skin with The Ordinary High Adherence Silicone Primer. To even out my skin tone a bit, I dotted on some Inglot YSM Cream Foundationin 43, and used a dampened Beauty Blender to blend like my life depended on it.
For a nice cream contour, I applied some LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Toast to the usual areas and used another dampened Beauty Blender to soften the look.
To highlight and hide my mask of sleep even more (caffeine can only do so much!), I used some Palladio Under Eyes Disguise Full Coverage Concealer in Vanilla Latte and Lemonade. Then guess what! That’s right. I used another dampened Beauty Blender. You get the picture.
I set all that hard work with my Japonesque Go To Brush and some RCMA No Color Powder.
To define and set that cream contour, I grabbed my Japonesque Kumadori Blending Brush and my usual Palladio Matte Bronzer in No Tan Lines. I gave that a gentle blend with a Morphe G5.
I set and baked the highlighted areas with some Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Buff. After letting that rest a few minutes, I used a Morphe M500 Brush to dust away the excess powder.
To fake a little bit of a healthy blush, I swept some Jouer Powder Blush in Rose on using a Sigma F15. I blended that like crazy with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush.
Now on to the eyes. For my brows, I used my trusty Anastasia Beverly Hills Duo Brush 7 and some Inglot AMC Brow Liner Gel in 16 and 20. The lighter color (16) to map of the shape and define, and the darker color (20) to build up the sparser areas.
To clean up the edges a bit (I’m not all about crispy edges so much anymore), I used a Morphe M508 Brush and some Dermablend Cover Creme in Natural Beige. That choice is really because I’m not wearing heavier foundations anymore, and the works wonders like this because it’s so pigmented.
To set my brows, I ran some Model in a Bottle Long Lasting Eyebrow Sealer along them, and then ran a Morphe M115 through.
I also took this time to cross my fingers and douse my face in some Model in a Bottle Makeup Setting Spray, hoping nothing will move all day.
I kept the eye makeup more simple today. I used some Frankie Rose Cosmetics Blush in Romantica, with a Morphe E17 in the crease and a Morphe E14 to pat it on the lid.
I threw on a pretty bold wing with an LA Splash Art-Ki-Tekt Waterproof Slim Eyeliner (best felt tip liner everrrr!).
For lips, I used LA Splash Waterproof Liquid Lipstick in Latte Confession.
And now… the glow! Today I really wanted to work with Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Mermaid Fantasy. I used a Sigma E30 near my tear ducts, a Morphe M501 along my cheekbones, and old schooled it with my finger tip down the bridge of my nose and on my Cupid’s bow.
I prepped my lashes for falsies with some Grande Mascara Lash Boosting Formula, and three on some Ardell Wispies with the usual Duo Eyelash Adhesive.
And that’s all for today! I hope you guys like this look!
