If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I absolutely love makeup! I thought I’d share my current go to makeup look! This is the kind of look I would wear if I had about an hour to get ready in the morning. If not, I’d still basically do this look, but not as glam.
I start off with my Ofra x Kim Thai Wanderlush Moisteriser which doubles as a primer! I absolutely love this product and wrote a review on it not long ago. I also put the Benefit Porefesional over my nose and cheek area to blur out my pores. Then I do my brows. I know a lot of people find it weird to do brows first. I’m not sure why I do them first, I just always have! For my brows I used the Maybelline Gel Pot Liner. I usually use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Dark Brown, but since I wanted black brows, I just used a gel liner. Before I put foundation on I do my eyes. I do my eyeshadow before foundation because if any of the shadow falls under my eyes, it’s easy to wipe off and doesn’t make my under eye a crazy colour. I used my favourite palette at the moment, the Lime Crime Venus palette (Get $5 off with this link*), I did a review on it over a year ago and I still love it! I also used the Revlon Photo Ready Eye Art glitter (topaz twinkle) for the centre of my lid. They are a really quick and easy way to get some glitter on my eye!
Finally it is time for foundation! My favourite at the moment is the L.A. Girl Pro Coverage Illuminating Foundation. My shade is Sand. This foundation is amazing and has a shade for everyone! To highlight my face I use the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal. I use the shade Creamy Beige. To set my entire face I use the RCMA No Color Powder (Get $10 off with this link*); I love it because it truly is ” No Color”. It doesn’t change my foundation shade at all and doesn’t cause flashback. For blush, I use the Too Faced Love Flush in the shade Baby Love. My Highlight is Kylie Cosmetics’ Cotton Candy Cream Kylighter.
My Favourite lipstick combo at the moment is Lime Crime’s Saint Velvetine with a clear Rimmel Gloss over the top. If I have time, I’ll pop on a pair of false lashes, my favourite every day lashes are Red Cherry #523. When I’m all done I set my face with the NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray. I know this probably seems like a lot, but I’ve been doing this routine for so long now, that I could do it in my sleep (some mornings I think I am asleep!).
So that is my go to makeup look at the moment. I really love how halo eyes look on my eye shape (Here is a great tutorial by one of my favourite YouTubers, Alissa Ashley, on how to do a halo eye). What kind of makeup look would you like to see me post next?
