You know the drill- step by step I’ll show you how I slather some makeup on my face. Let me know in the comments if anything catches your eye, but for now let’s get started! ❤
The “before”. Soo hawt~
First up, It Cosmetics “Bye Bye Redness”.
Just a little will do ya, cause you’re focusing on any redness or discoloration.
I just dab it in with my fingers, no special brushes needed.
Already my skin looks 10x better! It’s not an exact match for my skin-tone, so I always use something on top of it.
Next up: covering my under-eye bags with another It Cosmetics goodie, the “Bye Bye Under Eye” in Neutral Medium. Just to make sure it won’t crease, I go over it with a fluffy concealer brush too.
Seriously, the TINIEST amount is all you need for both eyes!
left side is covered, right is bare
I told you I had a triumphant trio base, didn’t I? For foundation, I reached for my It Cosmetics CC cream in “Fair”, and buffed it in with my It Cosmetics #206 Buffing Mineral Powder brush (which works JUST AS WELL with creams)
confrontation gettin’ all sorts of real here
Once my base is done, I lock it down with Urban Decay’s All Nighter Make Up Setting Spray
Next up- I’m trying to work an EVER SO SLIGHT contour with the Becca Low Sculpting Cream
I use my finger, and apply directly to my face. I make sure to buff it out with a brush though~
I also like to go on top of my temples too~
Brows next- why? No idea.
With a flat angled brush, I dip between the two dark colors on the bottom of the Be Mattenificent palette to get a decent shade match.
Kinda obvious which side is done, right?
Since my eyebrow hairs are soo long, I have to attempt to set them in place with a gel. Attempt is the main word here ^^;;
Going back to the cheeks, I decided to whip out a new color in my collection: Becca’s “Wild Honey”. This stuff is super pigmented so I went in with a duo-fiber brush to make sure I didn’t end up looking crazy!
Then I highlighter the tops of my cheeks with Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in “Champagne Gold”, lightly buffed in with an e.l.f. stippling brush.
A little goes a long way with the highlighter too, just a double dabs and then buff away!
Moving on to eyes: I went back into the be matenificent palette and used the two shades here combined to throw in the crease, with my favorite crease brush from 100% Pure.
Little circles, windshield wiper motions
As promised, I went in with one of my Geek Chic Cosmetics shadows from their Sailor Moon line “Silence Glaive Surprise”, with a short flat shadow brush all over the lid.
I then layerd “Chronos Typhoon” in the outer corners for some depth, and used a pencil brush to add a little extra under my lower lashes.
Saturn + Pluto = a great pairing :3
These two brushes are also some extra goodies, for extra blending perfection ❤
To add a little “oomph”, I decided to do a little cat flick with the gel liner “Immortal” from Makeup Geek, along with using their angled liner brush.
Last, but not least, a little gloss on the lips just for some ever-so-slight color: Bite Beauty’s Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in “Currant” is a neutral goodie ❤
Glob it on for goodness!
There you have it! Another GRWM, huzzah! Nothing to difficult, still looks pretty neutral, how can you lose? I hope you all are doing well, I’ll see you in the next post!
