I have said so much about my makeup already, but I realized that I never said anything about how I apply my makeup. So below I have written a step by step, about how I do my makeup most days.
The first thing that I do in the morning is wash my face. It is important to start your makeup routine with a clean, fresh canvas.
The next thing to do is apply primer. This will help create a balanced canvas. I apply this primer and smooth it out with my fingers all over my face. I usually use the primer from Rimmel. However, recently I haven’t been using a primer because my BB cream has a built in primer. If I use a foundation then I always use a primer beforehand.
Like I said I have been using a BB cream everyday recently. I like that it gives a little bit of a lighter coverage, and isn’t quite as heavy as the foundation. I like to apply the cream to a my beauty blender and then use a stippling motion to apply it all over my face. The BB cream I have is from Loreal Paris, in the shade fair.
Next I apply my concealer. I put a small bit under each of my eyes, and then anywhere else that I have dark circles, and then smooth it out with my fingers. The concealer that I use is the creamy concealer from NARS in the shade creme brûlée.
Then I apply a setting powder. I apply a small amount to a velour powder puff then dab it onto my face. This will help to set the concealer and BB cream. The setting powder that I use is the translucent loose powder from Laura Mercier.
After that I apply my bronzer. I apply a small bit onto a wedged fluffy brush and then brush it on the top of my forehead, over my cheekbones down to my jawline, and a small bit on the top of my neck. The bronzer that I use is from NARS.
Next I like to apply my blush. I apply a small amount to a large rounded powder brush. I then brush it just a few times over my cheekbones, swiping up from the middle of my cheeks upwards. I only apply a small bit because this particular blush is very bright. I have been using a blush from Too Faced in the shade I Will Always Love You.
Recently I haven’t been applying that much in the way of eyeshadow, because i’ve been using darker eyeliner. I alternate in colour, but usually use a light pinkish colour. I apply a small bit to my finger and then dab it across my eyelid. I have been most recently using the Tarteist Amazonian Clay Palette from Tarte.
Now is when I apply my eyeliner. I use a dark black liquid eyeliner, and apply from the inner corner of my eyes outward in a straight line. Then I draw a bit of a wing out from the corner of my eye, and make the line thicker. My favourite eyeliner has been the liquid liner from Kat Von D.
After applying my eyeliner I like to curl my eyelashes, using my eyelash curler from Tarte. Then I apply my mascara. I like to use a small brush to apply using a swiping motion on my upper lashes. I then swipe the wand from side to side, and repeat these steps to get a few coats of mascara. For everyday I avoid applying mascara to my lower lashes. My current mascara is from Makeup Forever.
The final thing that I do is apply a lipstick or lipgloss. I have been alternating various products, so there is not one that I use everyday. My current favourite is probably my peachy pink lipgloss from Too Faced in the shade Peach Please.
So that was my daily makeup routine, I hope you enjoyed! Let me know if this is something you would like to seem more of in the future!
Cheers and much love
