Before getting into the deets, cleaaarrr your mind girl! Do you think Barbs walks around totally stressed? Heck no! This might sound completely bizarre BUT sometime’s makeup looks come out 10X better when your mindset is on par with the tutorial at hand. For example, if the makeup you’re planning to dazzle is a black smokey eye, that means your mindset must be fierce and confident otherwise the makeup is simply pointless; on an empty casket rather. Anyyyhooo, prior to applying the given products above, I had smoothed on Perfectly Posh’s Apricots Overnight mask in one light layer to all zones of my face, the mask was left to sit for a good 5 hours until I was ready for removal! This is absolutely spectacular at hydrating the skin and removing dry patches, SO if you ladies at home want to try it out either in a sample or full version sized, click the link provided here: http://leynakee.po.sh. At the 5 hour mark I had washed the Apricots Overnight mask off in warm water and followed up by entrenching my skin in surge of hydration using my favorite Fresh Seaberry Oil! Personally speaking, use whatever products work best for you. I tend to list out my facial routine because it’s background knowledge for you beauties and sets the stage for the products to come. As loooong as your skin is squeaky clean fear not, the makeup shall be awaiting for you ;).

I can NOT stress brows enough to you beauties, they must be sharp and defined! Rather sitting there ALL day long trying to pick up adequate product using a brush, I decided to opt in for my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Caramel, this makes the process a breeze ;). Slanting the stick formula on an angle I began to gently “flick’ the product upwards with quick strokes this way it mimicked brow hairs accurately, when it came time to line I simply applied more pressure and spoolied out harsh lines with the flip side of the definer! I wasn’t too concerned on applying concealer after BECAUSE the clean up process was done using Nyx’s Jumbo Eye Pencil in Strawberry Milk, the stick was first applied under my brows in one streak then another streak smudged onto my eyelid. Using a clean ring finger I gently blended the makeshift priming base in evenly, excess was taken under my lower lash line! Normally I put the eyeshadow in a separate paragraph, however being the eye makeup is BEYOND simple it really is not necessary. With that being said, using my Mac 239 brush I gently smudged into the pan of CandyCrush and proceeded to patting the beautiful shimmery blue on my entire lid! DO NOT be afraid to build up pigment with this baby, you’ll need it. As far as the crease goes, I simply brushed across Mousse from the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Pallet with a M433 Morphe Brush! I find the best motion to be side sweeps, treat this just like a transitional shade. Due to the M433 Morphe Brush having super fluffy bristles I picked up Butter Pecan and heavily smudged it onto the tops of my brow bones as well as on my tea ducts, the shimmery gold makes for a stunning highlight!
