Back from the abyss called senior year of college, I finally have the time to share two makeup looks that have been saving my life for the last few weeks. This is a wearable makeup look that complements various skin tones, face and eye shapes. It’s a matte eye look with a slender cat eye to give your eyes a more awake look. Whether you wear makeup everyday or some days this makeup look is for the days you want to appear put together for yourself without looking or feeling like you tried a lot.
Chokers from Charlotte Ruse
*Beauty Blender used| Combination/Oily skin
Concealer– La Girl Pro concealer| Fawn
I place my concealer beneath my foundation to cover any dark marks.I do not use it to highlight. This is so I don’t use more product than necessary and also helps the finished product look less cakey.
I use the lighter Estee launder foundation on the center parts of my face and beneath the hallows of my cheeks to highlight and the darker Makeup forever foundation on the perimeter of my face to add dimension. I apply my foundation first with my fingers then pat it in with my beauty blender until it’s perfectly blended.
Powder-Laura Mercier| Translucent powder
I set the center of my face with my translucent powder and the perimeter with my bronzer.
Highlighter-Mac| Gold Deposit
I place this on my nose bridge, cupids bow, and high points of my cheeks
Used in the hallows of the cheeks
Palette-Stila| In the know Palette
I used a burnt orange color in the the crease and on the lower lash line. A matte nude color is placed on the lids and lastly a warm tone brown is blended within the crease. The nude matte color is also placed in the inner corners of the eyes.
Place a thin cat eye before adding lashes(optional)
Lashes-Kiss| Ritzy lashes
Eyebrows– Sonia Kashuk-Brow Definer La Girl pro concealer- Warm Honey
I use the brow pencil to fill in my brow and the warm honey concealer to beneath the eyebrow for a sharper, cleaner brow.
**Tip-Add or emphasize a beauty mark to draw attention away from problem areas on your face. Apply less color and product near problem areas, which may emphasize them.
