90s Makeup Trend: Blue Eyes and Nude Lips
So, we’re all back in the 90s as far as fashion trends are concerned. Thankfully, we’re keeping this decade’s eyebrows! I decided to try out two 90s inspired makeup looks with different shades of blue from the MORPHE - The James Charles Palette . My light look was created using the shade “Hello” all over the lid and crease, and running a bit of “Playgroung” on my lower lash line, and onto the outer half of my upper lash line. This added a little definition and brightness to the pale blue base. The light shimmery blue all over the eye and crease felt super retro and fun! ❄️🧚🏻👗 My dark look was created using the shade "Brother" all over the lid and blended into the crease, and "A capella" tapped onto the centre of the eyelid. This rich, dark version of the 90s blue eyeshadow trend felt much more modern and striking. 🧵🌊🌏 These looks are great for brown eyes - as you can see - but there are really no rules! You could achieve a toned down version of this look by lining your eyes with blue shades and adding lashings of mascara! Or pairing a navy blue or turquoise waterline with a bronze or copper upper lid! Don't be afraid of the blue! 2020 is the time to realise your colourful makeup dreams. Complexion Details 👸🏻 If you were interested in my complexion products, I used the ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation in the shade 1C0 Shell, the REVOLUTION - Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer in the shade C1, the Revlon Sculpt + Highlight Contour Kit in Light/Medium, and a touch of Juvia's PLACE - The Saharan Blush Palette shade Yara to warm up the apples of my cheeks slightly. Lip Details 💄💋 I did a DIY lip colour to get the 90s nude look. I put some L.A. Girl - L.A. Girl Luxury Creme Lipstick in the shade Teddy around the edges of my lips, and patted some Covergirl Colorliscious Lipstick in the shade 230 in the centre (I think this line is discontinued!) Skin Details: I have fairly dry and fairly sensitive skin. I am very fair, too. I live in Brisbane, so the weather is getting more humid by the day, and is generally very sunny.
Spooky glam look👻
I got inspired by my new ghosty-girl earrings for this look! If you want to try it for yourself, here are the steps I took: 1. I started with brows, first filling them in with the NYX - Micro Brow Pencil and then cleaning up the bottom edges with my REVOLUTION - Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer 2. I then primed my lids with the PLOUISE - PLOUISE Base Shade on a small fluffy brush. 3. I packed the colors I wanted in a swoop shape on my upper lid (I used MORPHE - The James Charles Palette ) and then cut my crease out first with GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover 4. Then I reapplied the P. Louise base shade under the cut and packed in a shimmery shade on my lid. I used the same shades from my upper lid to create a smoky winged liner and fill in my under eye. 5. Last but not least, I glued on my lashes and crystals with IL MAKIAGE - Duo Adhesive Fake Eyelash Glue and the eyes were complete! Finish off with your favorite base makeup routine, and don’t forget the black lipstick😜 I tried the MAC - Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour and I’m obsessed! Hope you enjoy trying your own version of this ghosty glam😘
This concealer is really good when it comes to blending and is very inexpensive. It’s by Maybelline, and you can get it either from Walmart or Target. I typically use the shade that comes in “cafe”.
5 Steps for Soft and Natural Everyday Makeup 💋
Most days I prefer to go light on makeup if I’m just going out to run a few errands, or doing something casual with friends and family. I have a few key products that I use to help elevate my natural features, ones that I think are the most essential to help us feel more put together. Below are a few of my go to products when I want a fast, easy, and natural makeup look for everyday. You can substitute any of the specific products I mention for your own, these are just what I prefer! 1. BROWS BROWS BROWS Anytime I have nicely groomed and defined brows I immediately feel more confident. There’s something about a nicely fluffed brow that just makes me happy. Not only that, I find that it helps frame the face and adds a bit more definition to the eye area. My current favorite brow routine uses only two products: The Anastasia Brow Wiz and the Anastasia Brow Gel. The Brow Wiz has a very precise pencil tip that helps with shaping my brows and filling them in with small defined strokes, and the gel helps with adding even more definition and shape while making sure they stay put all day. 2. Conceal and Powder Concealer is the most important step to this routine. I focus my concealer application to the center of my face - think under the eyes, around the nose, and chin area. This is where I have the most redness so I focus here and then follow up with some powder. We’re not using a foundation in this routine, but for me the concealer is enough to help even out the skin tone and blend in with the rest of our bare skin, giving a seamless natural look. I’ve been using the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and powder for years now, and they never fail me. 3. Rosy Cheeks I find that blush is a very important step after adding all that concealer and powder, which tends to flatten the face a bit. Blush will give your face a fresh look and help in defining facial structure. I don’t focus the product on the apples of my cheeks, I prefer to take it up on my cheekbones and then blend it to the apples just a bit, this defines my cheekbones more than if I only applied to the apples. Currently I’ve been loving the Wet n Wild Color Icon blush. 4. Bronzer This doesn’t serve the purpose you might expect in this particular routine. When I’m in a hurry out the door I don’t bother bronzing my face, but what I will do is put a bit of bronzer in the crease of my eyelids. It’s a quick and easy step that will define the eye and give it a bronzy look. I use the Benefit Hula Bronzer. 5. Maaaaascaraaaaa This speaks for itself. Without mascara my eyes just look incomplete lol. I’ve been loving the Buxom Lash Mascara, it gives my lashes ample volume and length, and opens up my eyes. Bonus (6.): Throw on some lip balm! 💋 I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at my quick and simple natural everyday makeup routine. Comment below on what your go-to everyday makeup products are, I’d love to know!

Top 3 Concealers
MAYBELLINE - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer I’ve repurchased this concealer in color warm/light a couple of times. I use it for my “no makeup” makeup days. It wears well on my skin, it doesn’t crease, and matches my skin tone pretty well while providing medium coverage. Definitely worth a shot if you haven’t already tried this popular concealer. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Concealer I personally love this concealer in color 10 fair. I use it in place of foundation, and it wears pretty well. It’s more of a sheer medium coverage, but makes my skin look great. This one also fits my skin tone pretty well, doesn’t crease, and wears all day. e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer I recently purchased this concealer for $6, and I’m pretty impressed. It’s full coverage and lasts all day. I got color fair/warm. It’s definitely hydrating, blends well, and covers all my little acne marks. Definitely recommend. Overall, if I *HAD* to choose one, I’d pick the E.L.F camo concealer, just because of how well it wears and covers, plus the price is on point. What’s your favorite concealer?
MAYBELLINE-Fit Me Concealer
Hey y’all 💅🏾 I just wanted to highlight some of my favorite TooFaced products! Honestly, TooFaced creates some of the BEST products that are not only high quality, but they’re suitable for all skin types & tones. Not to mention, all the products smell delicious 😋 My fave TF products are the peach matte lipsticks (shades “Hes With Me” “Sex on the Peach” are brown girl friendly!), the hangover primer (super hydrating, doesn’t pull, smells like refreshing coconut), and the unicorn highlighter (looks pink which is dreamy but glides in gold and smells like cupcakes, what’s not to love!! SN: I do find the Born This Way foundation to be a bit thick, and the concealer as well. However the Peach Matte foundation is incredible!! Super lightweight and skin like (unfortunately my skin reacted with cystic acne bc of the peach scent).

DEWY $10 FOUNDATION FOR SUMMER (click for pics)
COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation $10 🥥Why did I buy this product? This foundation kept popping up all over social media and I liked the fact that it was formulated with coconut milk and aloe extract. Also this product is formulated with out parabens, talc, etc that tend to clog your pores. 🥥What do I like about the product? This product has a dewy finish without looking greasy. Like it advertises, it looks like your actual skin with still giving a medium coverage. My freckles are visible but I can cover up scars with its buildable formula. 🥥What don’t I like about the product? The shade range could be more expansive. 🥥Who is this product for? This product is suitable for those with combo-dry skin as it does have a dewy finish. That being said if you have more oily skin, this product along with a good setting powder will work fine. I am in the shade fair/light which was a good match for me. ***Even though I wanted to, I did not edit my skin in the photo to show the true appearance of the foundation. I definitely recommend this foundations and am impressed at the quality for only $10💗
COVERGIRL-Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation
Best Drugstore foundation 💰💰
My favorite shade-inclusive drugstore brands. Which one was the best ? (L👉🏽R) L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation I actually didn’t mind this as much, but the only downside was oxidation (when the air turns your foundation a shade of two darker). The coverage was medium to full in my opinion & but it lasted a entire 8 hour day. MILANI - Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer THIS IS THE BEST DRUGSTORE FOUNDATION (& no one can convince me otherwise). This is the foundation I used in the picture posted & I absolutely loved the full coverage and it doesn’t really oxidize. I only used a slight amount and it covered any blemishes I had with little product. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation this my very very close second foundation. I use the matte & poreless because my skin is more so on the oily side & plus I love how matte foundations sit on my skin. This is probably the best coverage when it comes to the foundations but it does oxidize (which is why it’s second). This was the very first foundation I purchased when I started using makeup so she’ll always have a place in my heart. (Picture was the eyeliner test, to see if your makeup is really full coverage draw a eyeliner line on your wrist let it dry & blend the product out)
MILANI-Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer
👏 Amazing foundations for Oily Skin! 👏
These are my absolutely go to foundations for my oily skin from the drugstore. They vary in finish and coverage so I’ll break it down below. 1. wet n wild - Photofocus Liquid Matte Foundation this foundation is a great option if you want a break from the traditional matte foundation oily girls/ guys typically go for. Of course, stay away from this in the summer months and apply a mattifying primer to extend wear. The coverage is a medium but can be easily built. It doesn’t have a pump, but rather a strange plastic applicator. I don’t use it because I don’t find it the most sanitary. There’s a great variety of shades for a drugstore option! $8 at Walmart. ☺️ 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation another great option at the drugstore, with a matte finish. This foundation is only $6 at Walmart and it’s comparable to high end products! It wears beautifully and provides a medium coverage and doesn’t look cakey at all. It’s matte but not dry which is key! My only issue is that packaging in Canada/ US is the glass bottle without a pump. 3. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation this is a great great option if you’re looking for a soft natural finish! A great medium between a dewy and matte foundation. Again, I wouldn’t wear this when it’s exceptionally warm and humid but it’s amazing for the winter months when my skin is more combo than oily! As always, I prep my skin well and set as necessary (powder+ spray). There’s a good option of shades. The only thing is, there is a smell to the foundation that may not be for everyone.

How to get flawless base makeup in summer!!
What you’ll need: a foundation brush, a primer that is light and easy to blend, a high-coverage foundation and an oil control setting powder My pursuit for the base makeup: as I have an oily-combo skin type, I would like my base makeup to be long lasting and not easily ruined by the oil and sweat that I will inevitable have on my face during the day. Besides, I would especially suffer from acne in the hot humid summer, so it would also be better if my acnes could get perfectly covered. What I’ve used and my thoughts: ·smashbox - Studio Skin Full Coverage 24 Hour Waterproof Foundation I love how this product provides full coverage and it could last a whole day, sometimes when I wear this foundation, as long as I moisturize well and set the foundation well, it still stays on place and give me an intact look after 9-10 hours. But the only problem with this foundation is that it tends to get dry quickly and it could be hard to blend. ·clé de peau BEAUTÉ - Correcting Cream Veil SPF 21 My go-to foundation when I pursue a natural and clean look. But these days it is not long-lasting enough and it could only provide light-to-medium coverage. So on important occasions, this alone is not enough. ·KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Lock-It Finishing Powder This is my holy grail setting powder, only that the cushion that comes with it is not good enough. So I’ve changed it with something else I bought from CVS. You could also just use your brush or sponge to apply this powder on your face. It just blurs out every single shine resulting from oil on one touch. And I always carry it with me in summer to save my from being too shiny… Steps to follow: 1. Moisturize well before you apply any foundation products. This is always a must for any base makeup to look good and last long. 2. Blend the primer and the foundation in the ratio of 1:1 on hand. 3. Use the brush to dip the mixture and apply them on your face. You could also opt for a beauty blender if you are in want of a more natural look 4. Use the setting powder to set your foundation carefully and thoroughly. And voila, here is a base makeup that provides high coverage and lasts long.
