Lillee Jean 2015 Pastel Glittery Eyeliner Makeup Tutorial
This is defiantly one of those odd looks were I didn’t quite wash my face, but I did. Instead of going through a full, boring routine of cleansing and exfoliating I decided to mask it up with Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. Honestly, this is one of THE BEST masks I have ever used primarily because it visibly washes away dirt and my skin becomes baby smooth, all those pesky dry patches instantly gone! Once I allowed the mask to harden I washed it off with warm water and set my skin with Fresh’s Seaberry Oil! If you happen to be using an oil like me allow this to set for 7 minutes total, letting it set for much less time will create an oily base for your primers plus doesn’t allow the oil to do its job, hydrate!
I decided to venture out into other priming realms as my current primer well….exploded once again. No idea why this keeps occurring when the room is at a good temperature, bottle is kept upright OUT OF containers, and kept tightly close….hmm. Anyhoo once my face oil set I then applied Makeup Forevers Step 1 Hydrating Primer onto all zones of my face. Be sure to extend out towards the hairline for the best results! After using this primer I realized that a few months earlier I bought a full sized green color correcting primer from them and broke out, luckily that breaking out session DID NOT occur! Let the primer set for 2-3 minutes, depending if the product has oil is how you should time yourself!
Once the primer is set you should be ready to go for foundation! I wasn’t having such a good skin day, and when I’m not having good skin days I tend to gravitate toward products I haven’t used in a while such as Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Foundation and a Beauty Blender. While I do love my brushes to death, I do admit a Beauty Blender Pro makes life much easier, it just doesn’t make my makeup look as flawless. To begin I squeezed one pump onto the back of my hand and with the back side of the beauty blender, or fatter side, I grabbed some product and began to bounce it off my skin with light stippling motions. Follow the same stippling process on all zones of the skin and always blend out to the hairline. Due to the Beauty Blender containing water, it waters down foundations thus leading me to using another pump to cover the left side of my face. If added coverage is needed I wouldn’t stress it as cream contouring covers basically everything! Allow your foundation to set for a couple of minutes too.
