It’s so interesting viewing the evolution of myself. I went from tons of skin care regiments to splashing hot water on my skin and going from there, and ironically enough the minimalistic approach works much better for my sensitive skin! Prior to this makeup look, last night I actually gave myself a Vaseline mask. In my findings the Vaseline helps to shrink pores instantly as well as hydrate pesky dry patches, honestly the petroleum jelly has saved my life. With that being said, not much was needed this morning so I simply splashed on hot water to my face, patted it dry with a clean towel, and applied a light layer of my beloved Fresh Seaberry Oil to all zones of my face! After doing so I then dashed on Natasha Denona’s Face Glow Hydrating Primer to the high points of my face (tops of cheeks, center of forehead/nose/chin), this saves product and gives me a good guide on where to disburse the product. Once I had the placement set I began blending in the primer with smooth dragging motions, most of the product was situated out towards my hairline and concentrated evenly on the center of my face to ensure optimal results would be achieved! Generally you should allow your primer to set anywhere from 4-6 minutes, I was soooooo eager to try out the Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation I totally skipped that step. The sample version of this gives a hefty amount of product- most foundation samples give perhaps 2 applications of product, this on the other hand gives a full week’s worth if you only use one pump! I happened to use two pumps just to test out the coverage and see how well it would hold up if I built up pigment. With my Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting brush and once more, two pumps of foundation, I took a tiny amount onto the bristles of my MJ brush and gently stippled it onto my left cheek, specifically under my eye area while swiftly blending onto the side of my nose! This has the most incredible scent, not too strong but just enough to say “HOT DAMN”. I was super appreciative of the fact the foundation was easy to blend as well, some are very tough and creamy, on the flip side of things the Vibrancy foundation was smooth and very hydrating to my skin! You guy’s should definitely get a sampler of this from Sephora, no regrets mate.
Next up is adding a bronzy glow, without turning into a bronze goddess. The idea here is to mimic the pink tones that will be riddled all throughout the makeup look, in other words having a bronzer with a built in blush is best fit for this look! Besides, Blossom is a peachy keen jelly bean, you cannot have her looking flat, brightness and vibrancy is key. Using the Too Faced Snow Bunny bronzer and my Mac 168 brush, I gently brushed on the product starting from the temples of my face blended down to the hollows of my cheeks and around to the sharpness of my jaw line! These are basic area’s the sun hits sans the nose– if you’re using a matter bronzer you can go straight ahead to bronzing the sides of your nose, I just find the gradience of light-dark most natural when it comes to contouring/bronzing the face. Speaking of contouring, to set the cream contour fully and add some definition back, I took the dark bronze powder from the Marc Jacobs #instamarc pallet and swirled it across the hollows of my cheeks + sides of my nose, this just gave a nice shift in color and added some drama to my face! Right after the contour I then went into my Mac Relaxation Cream Color and stippled it across my cheeks starting from the apples up to my hairline using a Elf Ultimate Blending Brush. Using a mid-tone pink will not distract away from the rest of the makeup which is the goal here, a bright poppy pink will form a negative, or less desirable result!
Being a glow bomb is very important, I’m sure Blossy of there would agree! Using a pea-sized amount of my Nars Liquid Illuminator in Copacabana onto the back of my hand, I gently disbursed the product onto the tops of my cheekbones, onto my cupids bow, and on the center of my forehead/chin using a Sephora Pro Small Teardrop Highlighter Brush. Having a light yet firm hand is very important when it comes to the illumination process here, I tried to stick with upward dragging motions rather harsh side to side blending motions! To intensify this look up a bit more I then took the Bh Cosmetics Wild & Radiant Pallet, shade 2 in specific, and blended it across any area’s the Nars Liquid in Copacabana originally touched. The Wild & Radiant pallet is one of my FAVORITE’S- the colors are silky and very pigmented which is surprising for how cheap the pallet is in total, be sure to check out my updated March Haul for swatches!
Honestly speaking, after the illumination process is done with the rest is SUPER simple! For example, I applied two coats of Seduction lipstick by Dose of colors
