My skin has been the absolute worst this week primarily due to stress and me just overworking myself!  Hives are commonly mistaken for acne and the sick part is they even look like acne marks!  I went super light on the face washing and opted in for steaming my skin under hot water for about 6 minutes time, by then my skin was super red so I allowed it to cool down for 2 minutes (might be why in the video I look like a beat LOL).  After the cooling stage I moved onto applying a scarce amount of oil to my skin.  The Fresh Seaberry Oil tends to run on the thicker side leaving me to add water to it- yes I had a whole frantic skin moment with mixing water and oil, go figure.  I applied the watered down oil to my entire face including towards my hairlines and allowed it to set for 6 minutes while I went to setup for the tutorial :)!

           Once I had my set up organized (be prepared for next weeks video, new camera on the way, thanks mom) I moved onto the priming stage!  As many of you know I have become akin to the Natasha Denona Face Glow Primer!  It gives off such a healthy flush and covers imperfections to its fullest power.  With only a finger tip swiped amount, I began to evenly spread the primer from the center of my face out towards my hairline.  This is essentially like applying any oil or moisturizer, it just prolongs and benefits makeup application!  I let this sit for 2 minutes (absorbs super quick), if your primer contains excess oil and you’re doing this look on the fly I highly suggest applying in layers!

             I cannot WAIT for you guys to see the ND Face Glow Foundation blended on my hand for the haul video!  This has some serious glow power and differs from any other “radiant” foundation I have tried!  With exactly one pump on the back of my hand and my usual Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting brush equipped, I gently spread the formula from under my left eye out towards my ear (I work in streaks).  Continuing with the same downward streaking motions, I then expanding out towards my lower jaw line in which I began stippling and patting motions due to extra coverage needed!  The MJ brush collects A TON of product, thus making stippling a breeze for said coverage.  Due to this having radiant properties I allowed this to set for a good 3 minutes.  By the way, cream contouring was added to this tutorial thus the coverage your foundation gives is slim to none on the importance scale, you just need an even base!

          When I went to Sephora today and saw the Makeup Forever Pro Sculpting Duo my shoes popped off, talk about gorgeous!  These seem to blend and pick up pigment much better than the pro bronze fusion, despite the bronzer being hard to pick up product due to the cut it’s still a better buy! Using a Nars #21 brush, that happens to shed don’t ask why I used this I had brush hairs all over my chest, I took the bronze color and gently brushed it from my temples, down the the hollows of my cheeks, and finally down to my jaw line!  This adds warmth back to the skin which is a necessity after contouring… unless you dig the zombie look.  Since I use the pinkish highlight right after the blush I’ll describe it then!  With a denser brush made for contouring I popped the dark bronze from Marc Jacobs Filtering Powder kit in the hollows of my cheeks as well as down the sides of my nose, this brings back the depth that might be less noticeably due to the bronzer!

     Becca’s Beach Tint has been a total go-to shade for me in the morning!  It gives such a wonderful flush that isn’t too overpowering and can easily be built up.  With just my two fingers together, index and ring, I gently patted the coral from the apples of my cheek’s up to my hairline.  This tends to have a ton of shimmer so again, I’d like to mention building up product as it creates a sheerer and more matte appearance!

              Today, I baked like a chicken and felt uber cool doing so. Kidding here, my skin is a wreck and I decided to bake.  Why?  Well, it combats fine lines from the breakouts :).  Using the same Sephora Brush I gently patted on Makeup Forever’s HD Setting Powder in large quantities, if you’re able to see the white, you’re doing it right!  After 15 minutes (my eyes an lips were done by then) I dusted the product off and sprayed on Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray! As far as the lips go, I simply applied Colourpop’s Scrooge and set it with Anastasia Beverly Hills Warm Bronze lipgloss using a Mac 239 brush!  By the way, I must say that these Mac brush’s are incredible.  Going on a total of 5 years now and they still remain in tiptop shape, bravo Makeup Art Cosmetics!

               The only bunch of things basic here happen to be the brow product, eyeliner, lashes and…thats just about it!  To begin with my brows, that are furring out again, I gently spoolied through
