YAY! I finally did my first makeup tutorial! Just a heads up that it isn't very good, but I thought I would give it a shot! So I thought I would share my routine for my basic makeup day. I usually always go through these steps for applying my makeup, unless I have a big event or I'm wanting to do something a little different.
First, I start by applying my foundations. I always use my Bare Minerals because it is honestly the best foundation for my skin. I'm not a huge fan of liquid foundation because it makes my skin dry out easily. but you can use whatever you feel is best for you. I also use my warmth Bare Minerals to do the contouring. I like using the warmth because it really adds the contrast and helps shape the face. then comes the blush. I honestly love any brand of blush. I have multiple kinds to pick from so whatever color I'm feeling for that day I'll go with. Then I just add a little primer to help reduce the darkness under my eyes. It really helps.
Next is my favorite part! The EYES! I stick with neutral colors mainly because it goes with EVERYTHING and it's perfect for fall. I do a little bit of a smokey eye because it's so clean looking. Then I do the mascara and I have so many mascara that I literally just pick the first one up and use it. I always use the pencil form of eye liner because I honestly suck with the liquid. I also don't do a huge wing I usually stick with a little wing because I can't get my wings even and straight. UGH! It's such a struggle. Lastly for the eyes I touch up my eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil. I usually just shape them and fill in the little bare spots.
Lastly, the lips! I usually go red but today I felt like it was a Kat Von D kinda day. I love nude colored lips so I went with nude today. I made them a little more flashy by adding a coat of Smashbox lip gloss over top and get rid of the excess by dabbing them with a sponge! VWAH LA!
It's so easy and basic! If you have any questions about brands or anything you can email me or comment below.
