Full Face of AFFORDABLE MAKEUP❤️
Products: ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade ok, this pomade is amazziinnnggggg. My eyebrows have never looked so incredible before. It’s really rich and creamy. Glides right along w ur eyebrow brush. A face isn’t a face without eyebrows [$21 on Amazon] L.A. Girl - HD Pro Concealer this concealer is everything. When I tell u this concealer can conceal bags and everything else....this shit is amazing [$3.74 on Amazon] MAC - Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation ok so about this foundation.....I got this foundation from my mom and it’s in the shade NC50 (I think that’s the shade). It’s kinda dark for my face. But I normally mix it w IL MAKIAGE - WOKE UP LIKE THIS and I can get the perfect shade. [$32.8 on Amazon] MAYBELLINE - Facestudio Master Contour V-Shape Duo Stick ok so this is my first time actually using both sides of a contour duo stick. They did an ok good, the concealer color was light and blended in well and the contour color was deep and creamy [$12.99 on Amazon] BLACK RADIANCE - True Complexion Contour Palette I’m still getting used to doing a full face and I’m figuring out what are my colors. Black Radiance gets it right every time. My face has never looked so snatched before. [$6.87 on Amazon] NYX - Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray [$8.47 on Amazon]
Freeze your brows
Anastasia Beverly Hills just came out with the brow freeze styling wax and I have to say it amazed me as soon as I put the first stroke on my eyebrow. I had been fighting to pull my eyebrows up with a hair gel because I had seen a lot of beauty gurus doing so. First I would brush the hairs up then flatten it with a brush to keep it in place. All and all very time consuming. I ordered my ABH brow freeze styling hack and I was very eager to try it.I opened the package as soon as it came in and the moment I dipped my brush in the wax and stroke it on my eyebrows,they got in the perfect shape and they were as flat as a paper in that instant.I have to say it is a little bit pricey than the ‘hair gel method’. But it’s gonna make your life easier and you decide how long one will last you. Needless to say if you use a lot,it’s gonna cost you a lot.But this is just my personal opinion. I would love to know how your experience is!

And the look im after is the Smokey Eyes with Dark Red Lips! This palette has everything (literally); Estee Lauder’s 30 Best-Selling Pure Color Envy EyeShadows, 12 Pure Color Envy Lip Colors to 6 Pure Color Envy Blushes (4 blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter). See? I did not lie. It has EVERYTHING. Everything that’s on my face is coming from this palette! Except complexion of course. For complexion im using Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder. And i top it off with Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Make Up Setting Spray and im good to go! If you have really oily skin like me, youll love this.

Foundation Dupes, high end & its drugstore match
ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation is such an INCREDIBLE FOUNDATION, I would use this forever but at $52.00, i refuse to do so. Its drugstore dupe in my opinion is REVLON - Colorstay Full Cover Foundation its a close one although on the heavier side- as long as you know how to properly apply foundation you shouldnt be worried. And if you want good coverage to hide blemishes, this product is great! . NARS - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation $60 for a foundation? i will pass! Love NARS as much as anyone else but thats way too much! The drugstore dupe for Nars foundation, to me at least is L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation and its $12.99 currently at ulta but ive seen it on amazon for $10 and i have no complaints- great coverage!!!
Mini ulta haul with product tryouts!
I had a few Ulta gift cards burning a hole in my pocket so I decided to get a few new items to try out. The first item I’ve been dying to try is URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray I wanted to see if it’s worth the hype/price tag. I like this product, but I’d like to use it a few more times. I’m going to do another post next month comparing several different setting sprays to see how the compare. The next item I used is the MILANI - Cheek Kiss Blush in shade cheeky coral. I like the shade and it wears nicely. But I did have to layer it to get the color payoff I was looking for. I also got another cult favorite, PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer I absolutely love this product. I love the texture, the smell, the finish. It’s all great, absolutely worth the price. And the last is another eye shadow pallet from profusion! #Profusion Cosmetics - Starlet palette[products]#[FourStars] I love this palette, although the shimmer shades need a wet brush to be impactful. What other make up productions would you like to try out?

CLINIQUE - Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation tarte - Shape Tape Concealer 16N Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer PAT McGRATH LABS - Celestial Divinity Luxe Quad Some scratchiness and it was hard to blend plus fall out. But the color payoff is terrific and the duochrome is gorgeous in person. PAT McGRATH LABS - Dark Star Volumizing Mascara OG HG. PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer in Light. Blends well and goes on smoothly! DIOR - BACKSTAGE Glow Face Palette Hard to pick up with my brush. Doesn’t layer well over bronzer. Ended up looking muddy. ILIA - Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil in Saint. I love this formula. The right amount of shine, wears well and is buildable without being gloopy. Earrings via IndigenousIntentions @ Etsy.

Setting Powder + Dry Skin
Laura Mercier I heard alot of hype about this setting powder from Laura Mercier and wanted see to try if it worth the hype. When using this powder I first by doing my eyebrows first for my makeup routine. Next I put concealer around my eyebrows to have a cleaner look. Then I wait for the concealer to dry a little bit, then I put setting powder with using a blending brush so it's easily spread all over my eyelid and brow. I love doing this method because it makes a perfect canvas for my eyelid to add eyeshadow. After applying the eyeshadows and eyeliner, next put foundation and concealer or anything else that is wet I wait for it to dry. Then I use a big puffy brush and add the same powder all over my face not too much because it will cause dryness. Then after applying I will use the same brush but to wipe a little bit off my face like I said it does cause drying. Overall I like using it in a day I have for occasion that I want to look snatched but for me myself an everyday use I don't use too much of this product.

How to create a flawless and matte base makeup? My secret is...
Summer is the season when girls have countless reasons for not wearing foundation especially for those who live in high temperature areas or who have oil-prone skin. Actually the main reason for not wearing makeup lies on the fear that foundation will slide down when temperature rise. So do I. In summer, I wanna my foundation stick firmly to the face, and be sweat and water proof. I have oily skin. Besides, as you can see from the picture, I have redness on my face. I hope my foundation base will cover the redness and pores on my face, and show a flawless matte finish. I want to share with you girls how do I create a flawless and matte foundation base beat the heat outdoors. All I need are a Real Techniques spongeREAL TECHNIQUES - Miracle Complexion Sponge, Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation, and Givenchy setting powder. These products are amazing! With them, I don’t need too much techniques or other concealers, a perfect foundation base will appear! After I finished my skin care routine and makeup primer, I apply my foundation with this Real Techniques sponge in semi-wet. It is so soft and blends out liquid or cream foundation very well. My ARMANI beauty - Power Fabric Longwear High Cover Foundation SPF 25 is creamy, so it’d better to go with semi-wet sponge for better extending on my face. This foundation provides a high coverage with light creamy texture for a naturally flawless, matte finish. With this foundation, I can simply skip the step of concealing and most redness and pores become invisible. And my complexion looks soft, smooth and satin finish. I love how it performs on my skin. Finally, I apply thisGIVENCHY - Prisme Libre Loose Powderto set the foundation. I use the shade 01 mousseline pastel. This powder is so soft, airy and ultra-fine. It brings a sheer matte finish. It totally control the oil and sweat on my face, soften my skin, and keep my face and foundation fresh and dry.

Do You Really Need Concealer and Eyeshadow Primer? 💥
Well… Yes and no, let me explain... So you want your eye shadow to have the best color pay off and durability possible? You are going to want to apply it on a base. Imagine you’re painting a wall, to make the color look bright and uniform, you must prime it or paint it white with a base coat then put the color on top. In doing so, you have created a base to which the color can stick to it. ❤️ Without it, your skin will absorb the eyeshadow making it dull and lifeless, and on hot days the color will merely run off and leave you looking tired. This is why we use primers for eyeshadow, but this is the thing - you don’t need a specific eye primer. Stop the Press! 👀You can do the same thing using a great concealer, but it must be a quality concealer with staying power. 💪🏼 As long as you use something as a base and make sure that it’s a matt product with some powder, you will notice the results, and they will be positive.☀️ Go for…. KVD Vegan Beauty Concealer - Lock-It Concealer Crème A dual product use to conceal under the eyes and also on the top lid as a primer. It’s a great product that comes in 21 shades, so there will be one for your skin color. Fenty Beauty Invismatte Blotting Powder The next stage is to add a little blotting powder to your skin, especially if you have oily skin and are prone to breakouts. Now we are talking about staying power, and this means your eyeshadow won’t move. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion If you decide you want a primer and it’s always better to have everything than nothing, choose Urban Decay, it’s a great product from a fabulous brand. Investing in the right products is always a good move.

My Extremely Matte Flawless Full Coverage Makeup
My go-to Matte foundation routine. I am a combination oil. Oily in T-area, forehead and chin, and supper dry one cheeks and I do sweat a lot. During summer I am more oily and dry in winter and autumn. Today I want to share the product I use this summer as a combination oil, to get a perfect clean flawless foundation. I will also share my tips on how to set the makeup and how to apply the makeup. It’s mainly about the steps and products I use to set my makeup all day. Basically it is important to start with a well prepped skin. By that , I mean you need make sure that your skin is fully moisturized as well as sunscreen. These should all be done before foundation. Moving on I will use a damp sponge. i basically treat this step as baking before I apply my foundation. You basically apply the loose powder on the areas where you know for a fact you get supper oily. NYX - Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder For my situation here would be my T areas, chin and forehead. You do not want to apply the powder on areas where it might get slightly oily since you are not gonna apply this lose power all over your face. Just be careful about the amount, you dont want to go overboard and have the thick foundation as a clown. This step will help to control the oil as well as the process of foundation application. It will make the foundation look really flawless and perfect. It would also help to give for coverage. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation The foundation I use here is Double wear from Estée Lauder . The Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation is the world's best foundation for oily skin. This one got great coverage without looking like a mask.I have light/medium cool toned skin and I got the shade Fresco. The first time I wore this I went hiking in 100 degree weather and sweat like a beast but my face was still onIt stays on all day and I hardly have to touch up anymore. It is really good for my uneven skin tone as well.

Color correcting 101
Imperfections such as pimples, spots, or redness, are sometimes very noticeable. Sometimes they can make wour makeup to look ugly. And, on many occasions, only the base does not cover completely, that is when we have to resort to the correctors. The concealer function is to camouflage all imperfections of the face. The key to choosing the right one is to resort to the tone opposite that of the defect we want to hide. To do this, you have to look at the guidelines of color theory. A kind of wheel with all the colors of the spectrum. Concealer and function colors Green concealer Neutralizes redness, so it's appropriate to cover imperfections caused by acne. Acne marks usually have a reddish color. But you can hide any redness from your face. How to use it? A little product is applied to the redness. The edges are well blurred so that you don't see color marks. the base is applied so that the green tone is not visible and ready. If you have a lot of redness, I advise you to apply a green makeup primer. With it you will hide the reddish color of the face as it corrects and neutralizes discoloration of the skin. It also matches the tone and unifies the tone. Once applied and extended, apply your usual foundation. Lilac concealer This color will disguise orange spots and brown imperfections. Erases yellowing areas and conceals skins with a marked yellow undertone. Blue concealer It is used to cover orange imperfections, such as freckles for example. Yellow concealer Suitable for purple dark circles and any imperfections that this color has such as bruises. Yellow neutralizes dark circles with a purple or violet undertone. Camouflage stains in purple tones and black dots. It is perfect for concealing varicose veins that usually have a purple hue. If you have dark, golden undertone skin, it will also light up your face. Orange concealer Covers greyish and bluish dark circles. It also conceals dark spots on the upper lip. Orange is used to blur spots, moles or any type of imperfection with brown or bluish hues. How to use it? Apply only in the area to be covered and always before the base. But look, don't put too much product. Dark circle concealers often have a lot of coverage. If you put more of the account, a layer will form that will end up cracking. I only use the green concealer to cover certain rednesses of my face, such as those made around my nose or sometimes a pimple And I also use the orange concealer to cover my dark circles, since mine have a blue color. I use the correctors of L.A girls and the erborian cc red correct

LIQUID CONTOUR & HIGHLIGHT ROUTINE✨
When my fave becomes dry or I want my makeup to last all day/night , I tend to use liquids to contour. Liquid contour makes more of a drastic difference opposed to powder contouring. My routine: Prep the face: It’s important to use moisturizers, primers etc. so the product has something to adhere to. I chose to use TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer as a primer. This product mattifies my pores so there is no chance of texture peaking through. Contour: I next go in with my contour and highlighting shades. I used an ulta contour stick to contour what I wanted to add dimension to. I used Too Faced - Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer to brighten areas I wanted to stand out. I blended these shades with a stopping brush than tapped in the rest to really keep the product in place. It might look a little crazy but we’re not done yet! ( I added a photo of what it looks like) Apply foundation: Next I apply foundation overtop the liquid contour and concealer. As you may notice, you do not need that much foundation because there is plenty of coverage from the previous products. I tapped on the foundation with a beauty blender. I used the JOSIE MARAN - Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation Fluid Lastly: I set everything with powder. I used the RCMA Makeup - RCMA Makeup No Color Powder I like this powder because I feel as if it brightens my skin and cause no creating. Do you prefer liquid or powder contouring? or both? And what is your skin tone type?⬇️🤍
