First things first make sure your skin is adequately hydrated, it’ll make a huge difference between nada and prada! Rather using harsh cleansers or chemical-filled masks, today I opted in for a nice steam bath. I find this method to be MUCH more beneficial to my skin as it unclogs pores 10x faster! After around 10 minutes under the hot water I then proceeded to pat drying my face with a clean towel and applying a light layer of my Fresh Seaberry Oil to all zones of my face, including the sides. It’s a good habit to get into in regards to extending your moisturizers out towards your hairline, it creates an even base and allows wear time to be uniform! The same premise goes for priming. For example, after waiting a few minutes for the oil to sink into my pores I then moved along too picking up my Natasha Denona Face Glow Hydrating Primer. From there I gently placed dashes of product onto the high points of my face and moved forth in blending it out with smooth outward tugging motions, note the outwards mention, this means the product would melt onto the sidelines of my face (hairline) which is what is most ideal when it comes to the basis of all makeup!
You guy’s know I am NOT a fan of waiting, so as always I went straight into the bronzing process! It is SUPER important that your skin is not dull or flat in dimension, pastels have an effect of “washing” many a person out, work against the odds love ;). With my all star Makeup Forever Pro>Bronze Fusion powder and Mac 168 brush I gently brushed the product across the temples of my face down to the hollows of my cheeks and around to my jaw line! This is better known as the “outer 3” of one’s face, it is method that works on EVERYONE when it comes to bronzing and contouring. With that being said, using my Marc Jacobs Filtering Powder in Mirage Filter, specifically the dark bronze shade, I “stipple blended” (patted the brush and dragged it upwards to created numerous illusions with shadowing methods) the contour shade across the hollowing of my cheekbones and across the sides of my nose, this process set the cream contour fully and made my features more prominent! Interestingly so when it came to blusher, it became the easiest step of all. Normally many fear the appearance of “clown” cheeks however with Sephora’s Blush me in 01 All Smiles this is a NEAR impossible catastrophe as the color can be smoothed on right from the container (view my March Haul for a swatching of the pretty Coral shade). I highly suggest using a light coral shade rather light pink as it will contrast better with the eye and lip makeup, a light pink or dusty rose for that matter will “dull” the lookout!
