Having baby butt clear skin is clearly the MOST ideal condition for makeup application, however let’s face it the average living human is NOT perfect nor blessed with such clear and doll like skin! As long as you guy’s have an even skin texture ahead of you (combatted oiliness, no dry patches) with no impurities present, completing this look will be an absolute breeze. I was a bad girl yesterday I didn’t quite clean my skin off well, all I had done is removed previous makeup with my Neutrogena Hydrating Makeup Removing wipes! If you guy’s haven’t noticed I have taken a kinship to these babies, they work absolutely amazing when it comes to removing harsh and grubby makeup that just won’t come off, I’m talking waterproof mascara gone in seconds. After I had my previous makeup removed from a long day I slapped some hot water against my face (to open up my pores) and then set my skin with a light layer of Fresh’s Seaberry Oil. BE CAREFUL with how much oil you use- I have a huge pimple right now filled with OIL not puss, oil. Can it even be called a pimple?

Now that you guy’s know about my catastrophic pimple oily thing above my eyebrow, we shall continue on with the priming stage :). Once I allowed the Fresh Seaberry formula to really sink into my pores (give or take 10 minutes), I then proceeded to picking up my Natasha Denona Face Glow Hydrating Primer. Using only finger tip amount of product I lightly dashed on the primer to the tops of my cheekbones, the center of my nose, the center of my forehead, and the center of my chin! When working with creams of this nature (jars) it is best to work in light dots across the face, if more is needed after you blend the product in simply go back and spot apply. Speaking of blending out, to blend out the primer I used very firm yet light dragging motions from the center of my face out towards my hairline. I generally prefer starting my hands at the top of my nose, close together, and just gradually smoothing them outwards! The best part about this primer in specific is it is LAYER-ABLE, if extra glow power is needed to cover a blemish a bit more, Natasha Denona’s got your back love. Normally I don’t combine the two but I figure trying new endeavors is always a positive thing– right after applying my primer I moved along to blending a light coat of the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Porcelain to my skin! A lot of people prefer to let their primer set BEFORE adding foundation, if this is you go for it however I like a very luminous outcome hence forth why I work in light layers, the light layers allow you to gauge and control the final product. With all that being said, using a pump of the foundation on the back of my hand with my FAVORITE Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting brush, I gently began applying the product to the left side of my face with fluent stippling motions. For me I have the advantage of my brush, simply patting with a light dragging motion gives on the spot coverage and flawlessness. If I were you i’d really stick to stippling motions, or beating if you’re opting in for using a Beauty Blender. I wouldn’t stress it too much if you have redness or pimples visible after the foundation process, all will be covered during the next step, cream contouring.

I chose very glowy products so in reality my cream contour will never dry, there is a certain way to apply powder products with vulnerable creams that won’t ruin the process you just completed, let me explain how ;). First off, make sure the brush you want to use for contouring and bronzing purposes is very soft AND clean, I chose to go with my typical Mac 168 brush because it adheres to all textures well! One last thing before getting into the actual process- if you do not like powder contouring after cream contours simply opt in for a matter bronzer. Though I don’t like the effect just a bronzer alone gives, it might be a good option for some, either way the cream-powder technique is the same! Swirling into my Too Faced Snow Bunny Bronzer was such a weird sighting, I normally don’t use this product so seeing my brush pinkish when I expected brown was odd. I took the powder from the temples of my face down to the hollows of my cheeks and around to my jaw line, within this I used SIDE TO SIDE and slight upward buffing motions to create a flawless effect without ruining the previously placed contour. Don’t be too light with the application either, that’ll simply for splotches of color, if youuse firm yet guided motions and all should go well! By this point you could either move onto the next step (matte bronzer users) OR follow along with the powder contour process. I like to have an intense contour that looks seamless, if you add the extra dimension of a deep bronze shade ironically enough it looks more appealing but more natural in a bizarre way. Using the same Mac 168 brush I gently dusted on the dark bronzy shade from the Marc Jacobs Filtering Powders Pallet to the hollows of my cheeks, under my chin, and to the sides of my nose! Do keep in mind this is adjacent to MY FACE, for me I naturally have an inward flowing bone structure thus a shadow is provided, most natural looking is an added dimension for me, the point is you don’t have to follow my posts step by step, make it your own!

Here is where it gets a liiiiiittttle weird. Normally I go ahead and apply blush but for some odd reason I skipped blush until near the last step…I’m blaming it on the fact I’m under the weather with an annoying sickness I can’t shake off. With that being the case, I took High Beam by Benefit and highlighted my high points (cheekbones, bridge of my nose, chin, cupid’s bow, and forehead), I prefer to dash the product on straight from the brush applicator! To blend in the product I used my favorite Sephora Teardrop Highlighting Brush and simply brushed across the pre-placed liquid with side to side downward dragging motions. Try to stick within the peachy pink zone of highlights, it’ll compliment the lime green and bight pink lips well, if you venture out into the bronzy side a less fresh faced look will be yielded! After blending in High Beam I proceeded to using my long lost love Champagne Pop along the SAME area’s the liquid illuminator touched. Champagne Pop is a tricky shade because while it has A TON of pigment it still requires 2-3 layers of pigment before it glows and reflects well on camera. Anyhoo, to finish up the tactical work I then went into Becca’s Beach Tint Soufflé in Guava/Moonstone and patted it onto the apples of my cheeks up to my hairline! Even this shade mimics a pink/peachy complexion which is why you MUST plan out your look well and decide which effect you want to give off. For instance, if your blush is purple perhaps the goal is not to look as fresh faced, ya feel?

As a pre-warning, the facial process was freaking weird. Rather acting lik
