My face routine changes depending on how my skin is behaving, which currently is being very naughty. I try not to test out too many products at the same time to avoid reactions just so I know which product it could have been. As of late my skin has been very dry which is very strange to me because I’m usually a grease ball. So I’ve changed my routine up a bit and this is what it is currently . . .
I start with base and I’ve been mixing Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer oil free in Sand and M.A.C Face and Body in C5 (I’m M.A.C NC35 for reference).I use a Real Techniques buffing brush or my hands to apply it. For blemishes or hyperpigmentation I use M.A.C studio finish concealer in NC35 with a Real Techniques deluxe crease brush. For under eye concealer I’ve been using Bobbi Brown’s corrector in peach with my ring fingers. I skip powder and just use M.A.C blush in Blunt for bronzing or contouring with my Nars yachiyo brush. I’ve been using Laura Mercier’s foundation primer in Radiance as a highlight and I apply that to the tops of my cheek bones, bridge of my nose, and a bit on the forehead with my fingers. If I want a super glowy look I’ll add a bit of Dior’s Nude Shimmer highlight with a M.A.C 165 brush. I’ve been obsessed with YSL’s cream blushes and I’ve actually been mixing 2 and 4 to get a peachy pink color. I apply my cream blush with my fingers and then blend it with a Real Techniques stippling brush.For eyes I usually just curl my lashes with my Chanel eyelash curler and apply my Maybelline Falsies waterproof mascara and call it a day. If I have a bit more time I’ll sweep eyeshadow on. My eye’s need a primer because unlike the rest of my face they’re always oily. I use Nars pro-prime smudge proof eyeshadow base and apply it with my fingers. I then take a M.A.C 217 brush and sweep Burberry Pale Barley all over the lid and blend it a bit into the crease. I then take Burberry Trench eyeshadow and apply that to the brow bone with the same brush. To define the upper and lower lash line I use Burberry Midnight Brown eyeliner and smudge it into the lashes with a M.A.C 239 brush. For eyeliner I use Rimmel scandaleyes waterproof kohl in nude. I then curl lashes and apply mascara as stated above. To fill in my brows I’ve been using Anastasia Brow Wiz in brunette. For lips I keep it very simple and easy and just stick with my Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 05 candy shimmer. I then set everything with M.A.C fix plus.
Put ’em together and what have you got bippity boppity boo !
