Surprisingly heavy makeup WAS NOT the main aim here, in fact the goal was to apply the least amount of product of the necessary items at hand! For example, foundation wise I only applied one light coating and scrapped the excess back into the container– with such a concept you MUST make sure you skin is uber clean and one skin texture, that means no dry patches or blackheads loves, both which can cause fussy conditions for durable products. I went the route of simply using my Perfecetly Posh Pore-fect big face bar cleanser, this product helps “pull” the impurities out of one’s skin while hydrating and refreshing the skins natural barrier! Once I had washed the product off with warm water I then proceeded to pat drying my skin with a cleaned towel to eventually make way to my ALL TIME FAV Fresh Seaberry Oil, this stuff is spectacular and really helps bring a radiant natural glow to my skin without the overly oily effect. After give or take eight to ten minutes of allowing the Fresh Seaberry Oil to sink adequately into my pores, behold the priming stage began. I lathered on one pump of the Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer onto my skin starting from the center of my face (my nose), out towards my hairline! NEVER neglect the hairline, this will cause uneven wear-time to be prevalent during the time you flaunt your MOTD (makeup of the day). Also be sure to choose a primer that BEST fits your skin type, same premise goes for foundation! For example, I have five main foundations I alternate through due to my ever changing skin texture. Today due to my blemishes being VERY noticeable I opted in for my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in 1N1, this provides the coverage I most desire in a radiant natural looking formula! With that being said, with a TINY pea-sized amount poured out onto the back of my hand I picked up my Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting brush and went to town on the blending. I personally prefer using downward strokes sectioned around all zones of my face as this gives me an idea of HOW MUCH product I will be applying to my skin, from the strokes I then proceed to using lighter motions this way the foundation is fully worked in!

To finish up the eye makeup completely, start by lining your eye’s with medium thick bold cat wings using Kat Von D’s Ink Liner (or your liner of choice)! I find this liner to glide on super quick, thus the reasoning behind choosing it over the MG Immortal liner– it’s budge proof and def waterproof. Once the liner is set move forth to giving yourself volumous lashes! This look is basically all in the lash technique, so make sure to a; coat your lashes numerous times with the mascara you’re most fond of (Too Faced Better Than Sex for me) and to b; to apply dramatic fluttery lashes to accent the eye makeup beautifully (KoKo Goddess Lashes), these in specific will draw attention to the pop of color present on the waterline. That’s it for today cuties! I truly hope you enjoyed this makeup look- it was requested of me last week to do a light summery look that had some vibrance to it, so here it is :). Def something ANY beauty can pull off and look amazing in, you just must have a work ethic in terms of how you blend and perceive the colors at hand! Sometime’s even the best of artists can be a tad up their arses as critiquing is a touchy subject. Point is, view your work perspectively AND do what works best for youuuuuuuu, not someone else! That’s truly the beauty of makeup, it doesn’t fit one mold.
