Everyday looks can be one of the hardest to conquer for the simple fact most of us beauties overthink it! Lets face it, without perfect skin, its a true pain in the butt to rock minimal makeup, which is why I did this look in a way you WOULD NOT have to give up your glam face, you’d just have to interchange the eyes for something light and airy. Do keep in mind I used a very little amount of each facial product applied as well, I was itching to add more to cover up a few things but I figured WE ARE ALL HUMAN! Anyhoo, the first thing I had done prior to makeup application is apply a light layer of Origins Rose Clay Mask all over my face, this mask is a total life saver whenever I have dry or over oily skin. After give or taken 20 minutes of the facial mask on I then proceeded to washing it off with warm water (the exfoliation beads riddled into the product help to really deep clean the skin). After doing so I then applied a beaker full of my Fresh Seaberry Oil all over my face, including up towards my hairline and under my chin just to ensure my face was completely prepped for priming as well as clean! Speaaaaaaaking of primer, today I once more opted in for my Dr Brandt Pores No More Primer. This baby seems to be reacting really well with my dry skin, which is amazing because most silky textures create serious problems for me! As you might of suspected, I took only a pea-sized amount of the primer and section it off to all zones of my face, this requires NO drying time. As for foundation I went along with Guerlain’s Lingerie De Peau! This contains SPF and also has very silky light coverage, which is generally what one would prefer in a minimalistic glam everyday look. With exactly one pump onto the back of my hand (the pump gives a nice quarter sized amount) and my beloved Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting brush, I gently stippled the product across all zones of my face with fluent patting and occasional buffing motions!
Adding a little bronzer and cheek color is not exactly optional, copper eyeshadow is a strong hue to handle thus it needs a glam or if you didn’t opt in for contouring, moderately bronzy/glam face to even the clash out! This step took all of 3 minutes, one two three done, you just must be aware of the “3” of your face which happens to include the temples, hollows of cheeks and jawline. With this being said, using Mac’s Mineralized Skin Finish in Cheeky Bronze and the previously used Elf Ultimate Blending Brush (I use this a lot during the tutorial, its very simple to use) I followed the natural 3 of my face, to just add a bronzy glow, and then went into my Marc Jacobs #instamarc Filtering Contour Powder in Mirage Filter and with the darker bronze shade contoured the hollowing of my cheeks as well as sides of my nose! Keep in mind shimmer products is something you should be weary of, to put it straight if you want to yield a smaller nose DO NOT apply shimmer, or in this case a glowy bronzer, it’ll widen the nose shape. For blush I went with Nyx’s Glow for the simple reason it is a beautiful “just pinched” color, works for all skin colors! With a cleaned Elf Ultimate Blending Brush I stippled the product from the apples of my cheeks up to my hair line in one fluent motion.
Eyebrows, eyebrows, eyebrows- pain in the butt’s to figure out but once they’re pasted on, quite awarding. Make sure you have defined brows with this makeup look, it’ll help to really shape the face in a way thin gummy worm brows would not! I personally prefer using my Morphe G11 brush to define my brows with my ABH Dipbrow Pomade in Caramel, this is the thickest my brows have ever been and I shall explain why– the thick brows compensate for less eye makeup, drama is not lost. Absolutely NO primer was used for the eye makeup, during the foundation/contour process my burns touched my lids which suffices for a good enough base! Besides the fact we want this to be washes of color NOT intense pigment, sort of a new thing for me :).
