I get lots of questions about my makeup. I love playing around with different products, techniques, and helping other people with their makeup! Today I'm sharing my easy, step-by-step makeup tutorial that I do pretty much every day. This is my favorite routine because I find my makeup actually STAYING on all day long when I do it. I don't even have to touch up during the day, which I feel like I had to do for so many years! Here's the step-by-step:
1. After cleansing and moisturizing, I use this Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer all over my face. On days when I want more coverage, I use this foundation.
2. Next comes concealer. I use this concealer pen under my eyes, around my nose, & on any blemishes or red marks. I just paint it on, then blend it with a foundation brush.
3. After that I use a translucent powder to kind of 'set' the tinted moisturizer and concealer. Then, if I want extra brightness under my eyes, I use this Saffron mineral powder that works wonders.
4. Bronzer - on my cheek bones up in a "J" motion to my temples. I also put it on the perimeter of my forehead and on my neck / chin.
5. I use this blush in "Bloom/Tulip" on the apples of my cheeks after my bronzer for a little pop of warmth/pink.
6. Eyes - Lately I've been playing around with this blending technique that I saw Daphne Oz post about - I swear it makes you look like you're wearing false lashes! Something about the thick, blended darkness in the corners. Anyways, here's how to do it:
+ shimmer color 'Oyster' all over lids
+ light pink 'Slipper' all over lids
+ this plum eyeliner (great for ALL eye colors) on the top lash line. I do a thick line that kind of kicks out into a cat-eye at the edge. Don't worry if it's uneven - you're going to blend it
+ using a blending brush, take the plum color 'Amethyst' and blend it ontop of your eyeliner, into the corners of your lids. It should be thinner the closer to the inner corner of your eyes, and gradually get thicker as you get to the outer corner. The outer corner should be the darkest area.
+ sometimes I only line the tops of my eyes, and other times I use this 'violet' liner in the water lines on my lower lash lines.
+ mascara! My favorite is 'Monsieur Big' by Lancome. A trick to making it look thicker and longer is to apply a thin coat, wait 30 seconds until it's about halfway dry, then come back over with a second coat. Voila!
