Being a fashion & lifestyle blogger, I like to carry myself in the most comfortable and stylish way possible. The look I usually carry is a very versatile look that works well at the office, on a date or for Sunday brunch. Pretty and polished is flattering, classic and chic–the perfect combination. Who doesn’t want to look like the best version of themselves?
I like to begin this look with a primer followed by tinted moisturizer. Apply a dime-sized amount all over your face just as you would a traditional moisturizer. Follow that by spot correcting any areas that might need a little extra attention due to darkness or redness, generally under the eyes and around the nose and chin. For spot treating, I prefer to use L A Girl HD Pro Conceal.
After concealing all facial spots, I like to set my concealer with Natio loose powder under the eyes and on my jaw lines. Allow it to rest on your skin for good 5 minutes, meanwhile I like to do my brows with Nykaa brow pencil and I use Makeup Revolution bronzer palette to do my eye lids to give them a nice subtle shimmery effect. With a slight winged liner apply kohl on lash line and waterline. I use Maybelline gel liner as kohl and liner both. After I’m done with my eyes, I take off the excessive loose powder with the help of a brush.
Next pick a bright cream blush like La Prairie’s Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Honey Glow. Using your pointer finger, *stamp* some onto the apples of your cheeks and then blend out and up with your clean middle finger. It’s important to let makeup settle into your natural complexion to achieve that dewiness we all love.
For pretty and polished lips, Mac’s Mehr is perfect to keep your look simple and fresh.
If you feel that it is still too shiny in parts the best thing to do is strategically power in just the right areas. I love Benefit’s Powderflage. Simply dip a small fluffy brush in the product and gently swipe under your eyes, around your nose and between you brows leaving the rest of your face powder-free. This will ensure you look fabulous without looking like your face is wearing a ton of makeup!
