Hey guys! Just a very simple eye and a red lip look for you today!
I started (as usual!) by waking up my under eye area with The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. I also ran some Smack Beauty Bat Those Lashes Volumizing Lash Serum along my upper lash line.
I fought the dreaded oil slick look by patting on some NYX Professional Makeup Shine Killer. I also hydrated my lips with Blossom Scented Lip Gloss in Mint.
For a little color correction, I used a Real Techniques Essential Foundation Brush to apply the different colors as needed from the Ben Nye Media Pro Corrector Wheel. I evened out my skin tone with Dr. Jart + Black Label Detox Beauty Balm, using a dampened Beauty Blender to blend it in.
To get a little definition, I decided to cream contour and highlight using NYX Professional Makeup Sculpt and Highlight Face Duo in Taupe/Ivory, blending it in with another dampened Beauty Blender. Because I wanted even more brightness, I also applied some Jouer Cosmetics Perfector in Creme, blending this time with a dampened Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
For some flush on my cheeks, I used my fingers to apply a little Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint in Very Charming. I also added some glow to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose with The Beauty Crop Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream.
To set all that cream product, I grabbed a Morphe G5 Brush and used it to sweep some Jouer Cosmetics Mineral Powder in Perle Naturel all over. On the areas I earlier cream contoured, I used both an e.l.f. Cosmetics Contouring Brush and a Morphe R41 Brush to deepen it with Sephora Matte Perfection Powder Foundation in Deep Mocha.
For more cheek color, I used a Sigma F15 Brush to add some Santee Cosmetics Sun Kissed Mineral Formula Blush in 05. Inalso added more glow (because I can’t get enough!) with a Sigma E40 Brush and some LA Girl Cosmetics Strobe Lite Strobing Powder in 110 Watt.
Using a Sigma E65 Brush, I filled in and shaped my brows with Inglot AMC Brow Liner Gel in 17. Using a Bare Minerals Max Coverage Concealer Brush, I cleaned up the edges with Jouer Cosmetics Perfector in Naturel.
Using a Morphe M505 Brush, I swept some Jouer Cosmetics Powder Eyeshadow in Praline into my crease. I then used a Sigma E55 Brush to pack some Glamour Doll Eyes Pigment in Bittersweet onto my eyelids.
After adding a couple coats of Palladio Double Agent Faux Lash Effect Mascara, I decided to add some understated drama with Ardell Wispies, attaching them with Duo Eyelash Adhesive.
After lining and filling in my lips with Beautique Lipliner in Real Red, I completed the look by swiping on some Dose of Colors Liquid Lipstick in Merlot.
And that’s all y’all! See you soon!
