Face:

 I first started priming my face with Too Face – Hangover RX Primer. I then used Benefit – Porefessional for any areas where I have larger pores or lines that I want to hide.

After priming my face I mixed my smashbox – 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation (2.3) and my Loreal – True Match Lumi Foundation (n1-2 Neutral Soft Ivory) for my perfect shade. I applied them with a damp Beauty Blender to get the perfect amount of flawless, long wearing coverage.

For under eye concealer I used NARS – Radiant Creamy Concealer (Honey) to get rid of any dark circles. Then I lightly set my concealer with NARS – Light Reflecting Setting Powder (Translucent) to prevent the concealer from moving.

For a light bronze, I applied the Sephora – Matte Bronzer (Los Cabos) around my hairline, on my cheeks, and on my temples. I added a little bit of contour with Kevin Aucoin – Sculpting Powder (Medium) in the hollows of my cheeks to accentuate my cheek bones, and make them look more prominent. I topped my cheeks off with NARS – Orgasm Blush.

To give me a healthy glow I added The Balm – Highlighter (Mary-Loumanizer) to the high points of my face. On the tops of my cheek bones, down the bridge of my nose, above the arches of my brows and my cupid’s bow.

I used my Anastasia – Dipbrow Pomade (Medium Brown) with an angled brush to lightly fill in my brows. To set them in place I applied Millani – Clear Wax.

Eyes:

To prime my eyes for shadow I use the Mac – Paint Pot (Painterly.)  I then applied a light wash of Lorac Pro – Eyeshadow (Cream) all over my lids. To add a little definition I used Makeup Geek – Eyeshadow (Creme Brûlée) in the crease of my eye to create a soft, natural look. 

This look was all about the eyes so I applied lots of mascara, and some thick, long lashes! I started by adding a little NARS – Larger Than Life Eyeliner (Via Veneto) to my tight – line (the upper water line.) That way, if there were any spots where my lashes didn’t meet up with my natural lashes, it would still look seamless. I applied my Ardelle – Demi Wispies as close to my upper lash line as possible, with my Duo – Lash Adhesive (Dark Tone.) Then I added 5 layers of my favorite mascara. The Loreal – Voluminous in Waterproof (Black.) Just remember when applying mascara, allow it to dry before you add another coat. That will help prevent clumping and make your lashes look longer and fuller.

Lips

To finish I went with a glossy nude lip. This is my favorite lip combo, as of lately. I first put on Maybelline – Baby Lips Dr. Rescue, so my lips would be smooth and not dry. I added Bite Beauty – Lipstick (Retsina) first and topped it with Bite Beauty – Lipgloss (Rambutan.) I am seriously loving this nude lip. I wear it almost every day. It is especially perfect for no makeup, makeup days. 

 

That my friends is everything! This look takes me about 7 minutes to do. Maybe a little more, just to let the mascara dry. But it is so easy and gives you a flawless face, without looking like you tried way too hard. I hope you enjoy this look and let me know if you have any questions. Also, comment and tell me what you would like to see next! Love you all!
