Lets start from the base…
Primer: I have extremely oily skin so I have to use a matifying primer. However, I do not apply this primer all over. I only use the product where I need it. Why? The Becca Ever-Matte Powerless Priming Perfector is STRONG. This stuff is seriously like glue! So I apply it on my t-zones only using my fingers.
Concealer: I like a creamy consistency and full coverage product so I use Too Faced Born This Way Concealer in Medium. I then use my beauty blender to blend!
Foundation: For a light look I wear the Mac Studio Watertight NC35. For a full coverage look I use Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able in Honey Medium. I then set or “bake” with the Mercier Loose Setting powder. For my foundation application I use either or beauty blender or a real techniques stippling brush. Just depends on my mood!
Contour: For both my cream and powder contour I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes. The ABH cream contour does tend to dry out so I place a little facial oil in order to get the creamy consistency working again. This product blends out beautifully!
Bronzer/Blush: Okay so I have tons of bronzers. Typically I’ll use my ABH powder contour as bronzer. Ill warm up more of my skin with the product. But when I wanna be a extra I really go for golden toned bronzer. I like to look like I just stepped off the sun! The Elf Duo Brush/ Bronzer is AMAZING! It’s also a great dupe for the NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo. The Milani Baked Bronzer in Soleil is also BOMB and SO CHEAP (like $7.99! )
Highlight: Lets have a moment of silence for all of the people I have blinded with my excessive highlight… sorry… not sorry 🙂 Laura Mercier Indiscretion and Laura Geller ‘Baked Gelato’ Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey.
Eyes: First palette I typically pick up is ABH Master Palette by Mario or the original Urban Decay Naked palette. On a regular schmegular day I go for neutral colors in the pallets just to give me a little bit of an oomph.
Mascara: I LOVE the Maybelline Colossal and the Lancome Grandiose.
Lips: I use basically everything! My go to is typically a nude lippie or chapstick over my natural color. I absolutely love MAC lipsticks and NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams.
Finish: I always finish my looks with a setting spray. Sometimes I go for a rose water or dewey spray. When I need an all day/night look I use the Urban Decay De-slick Makeup Setting Spray.
