As I described in the video tutorial (I will probably be posting the blog post first SO this is like a sneak peak) my major breakouts are actually not hormonal, they’re due to the new products I bought for my March Haul. If you were curious as to where the video is to that haul I am sad to say it WILL NOT be posted for the simple reason I can’t publish rubbish to you guys, some of the things I said are simply NOT true anymore! For example I bragged about how amazing Benefit’s Dew The Hoola bronzer is only to breakout 4 days later with MAJOR acne bumps. You might be wondering why this is relevant, well being the first step is ALWAYS skin care, breakouts are a game changer to anyones routine, especially mine since I don’t break out too much. All I had done prior to makeup application is soak my skin in steamy water for 10 minutes, I then proceeded to applying a light layer of Origin’s High-Potency Night-A-Mins Cream all over my skin, especially out towards my hairline! I figure steering clear of all oil is my best bet for the next few days, I am not a fan of spot acne treatments. Just so you guy’s are aware of the shades present in the infinity stones I posted a picture above, as you can see, the gems are hypnotizing!
I wanted to ensure my skin was drenched in hydration before moving forth in adding ANY foundation, I have tons of dry patches because of these pesky breakouts. Thanks Benefit. Using my FAVORITE primer, Natasha Denona’s Face Glow Hydrating Primer, I gently dashed tiny marks of product across all high points of my face, its best to stick to the high points because it makes blending out MUCH easier rather placing product around random areas! Speaking of blending out, once I had the product placed onto the exact area’s I wanted it on I moved along to gently smoothing the primer in with fluent stretching outward motions, occasionally I used circular motions to buff the primer out towards my hairline. By this point you have the choice of either allowing the primer to dry a bit OR to move straight along, for the sake of my dry patches I went straight to the next step, the excess oil will eventually matte down! With a pump of the Too Faced Born This Way foundation onto the back of my hand I segued the product onto my left cheek using my Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting brush. I generally prefer sticking to stippling motions with slight drags downwards, this helps to build up product WHILE forming a uniform skin texture (if you brush upwards you stand a chance of tiny hairs getting caught in the foundation). Make sure the coating’s you use are very lightweight, I tend to go very heavy on my cream contour so I actually used half a pump all over my face. Surprisingly the half pump was enough to cover any redness or minor breakouts so too complete the foundation process I lightly buffed out excess product left on my hand to my hairline and under my chin! These are area’s forgotten quite a bit by many women and men, I am here to say DON’T FORGET IT- you’ll be shocked at what a difference it’ll make.
Not sure if you lovies will approve of this BUT I was thinking of doing a tutorial strictly on contouring, when I record the blending video it only makes perfect sense to do it in conjunction to a contour video, no? Since cream contouring was put into the playing field, you should know it went a bit South today, meaning different methods were used under the same principals. To begin the process I took my Urban Decay Vice 3 brush (don’t ask why, just go with it) and dipped it right into my Cover Fx N0 cream foundation! I prefer using an extremely light highlighting shade and extremely dark contour shade, this is MY personal likings which means use whatever I say as a guide, this is not an exact science since contouring methods vary from person to person. N0 was taken under my eyes in inverted triangles (up to my hairline), down the bridge of my nose sprouted up towards my hairline (intertwined through my eyebrows, top and bottom), and from my left jaw line to my right jaw line. I packed on some pigment to the area containing a HUGE acne dry patch, it looks more like a burn honestly! As for contouring using Cover Fx’s N100 I simply drew on straight lines to the sides of my nose (connecting at the tip for dimension), in the hollowing of my cheeks, and to my jaw line. For added depth I also took the cream product under my lips, this gives off a pouty effect! To blend everything in I used my handy Elf Ultimate Blending Brush, for the times I have not so good skin this brush saves my life tremendously because the bristles push into the skin rather downwards which drags product off. I stuck to a variety of stippling motions AND buffing motions to ensure the cream’s blended in seamlessly, if you must add more product PLEASE work in layers, its better to blend+add rather blend in a butt load of product that starts streaking because too much was applied! I allowed the cream’s too set for a good 4 minutes before moving along to the powder bronzing/contouring stage, I suggest you wait a longer amount of time BUT I am very impatient.
Weirdly enough it’s easier for me to stipple on powder than wait longer bouts of time, odd but quite true. The beauty of this look however is many of the products work amazing under humid conditions BUT ALSO are gel-cream based making them easy to manipulate! One of my all-star bronzers happens to be Makeup Forever’s Pro>Bronze Fusion Powder in 10M. This gel bronzer is simply amazing because in correlation to this makeup look, when I used my Mac 168 brush and swirled into the powder then applied it to the temples of my face down to the hollows of my cheeks and back around to my jaw line with stippling/blending motions, it conformed to a more liquidy cream texture, not many powder product’s do this! Another texture that is easy to manipulate happens to be the most common of all, silky smooth talc ridden powders, this is probably the main reason why I prefer the Marc Jacob’s #instamarc Filtering Powder’s over ALL popular contour kit’s. As you might of guessed I gently blended in the powder to the hollows of my cheeks and the sides of my nose using the same Mac 168 brush, this just added more definition to my face! For all of you against adding extra powders and such, if you’re going to add glitter, honey go all out screw your morals, this is Lillee’s Glitopia, yes that is a new word :).
Try to stick very natural when it comes to the blush, that means no vivid reds and definitely NO extreme pinks! Though your intent is purely good hearted, I’d hope, the contrast of bright cheeks against demure bronze lips and extreme eye makeup will create too much of a clash to the human eye at first sight. The pure purpose of a blush for this makeup look is to add a HINT of color (Benefit’s Dandelion would be a good option for powder user’s) as well as a nice glow! To get this spoken of “glow” I simply picked up my Nyx Boho Chic blush and with a cleaned Elf Ultimate Blending Brush I firmly blended the color from the apples of my cheeks up to the tip tops’ of my hairline. This upward dimension gives nice depth to the face AND gives the illusion of higher pulled up cheekbon
