I happened to film this video at literally 2 in the morning, so I really was not up to washing my skin. Instead I applied Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask and allowed it to cleanse my pores for about six minutes. I then finished off by washing my skin in warm water and applying Fresh Seaberry Oil to all zones of my face. If you used an oil like me let this sink into your pores for a good 6-7 minutes!
You should always use a primer with foundation, wether you’re lazy or not get into the habit. It protects your skin and makes the overall foundation smooth on MUCH better, think of it like when you put a nail base on to protect the natural nail barrier! At any rate I used Dr Brandt’s Pores No More Primer and smoothed it over all zones of my face. Priming is extremely similar to the moisturizing process before hand because I simply used a pea-sized amount of the product, rubbed it between my fingers, and starting from the center of my face blended out towards my hair line. Allow this to set for a few minutes! Once again depending on if your primer has oil let it set for a longer period of time.
Moving along to foundation, I was quite surprised on how glowy my skin look from Estee Lauders Double Wear Foundation. Usual this stuff dulls out my skin and dries a little too matte for my liking, this goes to prove a different primer makes all the difference. With exactly a dime sized amount (if you’re able to control the product fall out) and your favorite brush/sponge, I went for Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting Foundation Brush, begin to stipple the product onto your skin. I prefer starting from my left cheek and simply placing the product on where I have a good sized amount of excess product on the back of my hand still. Once you have placed the product on all zones of your face (cheeks, forehead, chin) move along to slight buffing and downward stroking motions! Don’t use too much product simply work in layers because streaking is extremely easy to occur with this foundation in particular.
Fair Neutral, which is a few skin tones lighter than my natural coloring, and I used it to highlight areas I wanted to make wider and more prominent. To do so I drew a line from my tear duct down to the side of my nose extending back to my hairline (like an upside down triangle), I also took the product from my left jaw line to my chin and finally back to my right jaw, the last area I highlighted was my forehead down to the bridge of my nose! For cream contouring I took my normal Cover Fx Cream Foundation in N100 and then with Sephora’s Concealer brush from I believe 2013, I contoured the sides of my nose, the hollows of my cheeks and my jaw line itself. To blend I used Elf’s Ultimate Blending Brush and starting from my left jaw up I also incorporated large circular motions. As I got up to my under eye area I also started to use slight stippling motions just to have a more natural effect. When you’re sponging in or brushing in the cheek contour be sure to use upward lifting motions to create the effect of higher placed cheekbones!
I hardly ever use Makeup Forevers Pro Bronze Fusion, but today seemed like a good day to start. With my Tarte Swirl Powder Contour and Bronzing Brush I brushed the honey shade from my temples down to the hollows of my cheeks and to my jaw line. Following the natural outer “3” of your face and gradually add warmth back with layers NEVER begin with a ton of product! With the same brush I set the contour by going into Smashbox’s Step By Step Contour Kit. Specifically with the shade called “contour” I re-contoured the sides of my nose as well as the hollows of my cheeks. This creates a gradience between the bronzer and contour color which is atheistically pleasing by the naked eye.
For a bright counterpart blush wise I used Nars Gaiety! With Sephora’s #45 Brush I brushed the candy pink from the apples of my cheeks up to my hairline. This sort of application gives the illusion of higher up cheeks and deepens the contour tremendously! Right after blushing I illuminized with Urban Decay’s Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder. With any small brush gently dust the powder on the bridge of your nose as well as on the “C’s” of your eyes and your cupid’s bow. I actually used an Elf Concealer Brush so the tools your opt in for do not matter as long as you get the job done!
Once the eyes were completed I went into Baremineral Mineral Veil and dusted it under my eyes, on my forehead, and on my chin with the Sephora’s #45 Brush. Then I took Urban Decays Setting spray and spritz a few sprays on to ensure the makeup would last a few hours while still looking fresh!
