Something that many girls don’t realize in today’s society is that you don’t need tons and tons of makeup to look beautiful. You actually don’t need any at all. But I have rosacea in my cheeks and get tired of people asking me if I’m embarrassed. So I like to wear a little bit of makeup to class or just to run errands. Here’s how I achieve this simple and inexpensive look:
Prime your face
I used the Becca Backlight Priming Filter. I swear by this stuff. It’s infused with Becca’s propriety blend of crushed pearls and it leaves your face really dewy looking during the cold winter months. Rub the primer all over your face & let it dry until you put on your foundation!
Like I said I have rosacea in my face so I can’t JUST use BB cream. I use the Wet n Wild Fergie BB Cream with a flat top brush as the first layer. I then go in with the new L’oread True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation as the second. It’s two sheer foundations that give me the right amount of coverage without looking like a cake face.
Everyone has seen where you place concealer under your eyes in the upside down triangles. For a glam look I’d totally do that but for a more natural look I just put a 3 little lines of the Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer under my eyes and down my nose and blend it with my same brush I used for my foundation.
I use the RCMA no color setting powder. I take any brush that is usually the closest to me and brush the power where ever I placed my concealer. When you use a liquid you always set it with a powder. I let myself “bake” while I do my brows.
I used the new Anastasia brow definer in the color blonde (because I am blonde lol). I also use the Becca Shadow & Light Brow Contour Mousse and Anastasia brow powder for the ends. I go over my brows with the NYX Tinted Brow Mascara to keep them in place. (If you want a brow tutorial let me know!)
Blush and bronzer
I mixed my MAC “Wash & Dry” Blush in Crisp Whites and Benefit’s Hulu bronzer together and used an angled brush I swipe it along my check bones and do circles motions.
I go very light on my eyes for this look. I used Makeup Geeks peach smoothie on the lid with a blending brush and Coco Bear in the crease with the same brush. I don’t like to wear liner with this look because you can tell when someone has it on. I curled my lashes and used Benefits Roller Lash Mascara on the top and bottom lashes. I also took NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk and lined my water line to make my eyes appear wider. Totally optional!
All that is on my lips NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in ABU DHABI.
And that’s the look. Simple and easy! Give it a try and tag me in your finished look so I can share it here on the blog!
