I am not a makeup artist or guru or anything crazy involved in makeup. This is just to show you what products I use and their results. Let me know any thoughts or criticisms for I am still trying to learn new makeup techniques.
I don’t wear eyeshadow on a daily basis. When I do, Too Face’s Chocolate Bar Palette is really all I ever use. I am very simple when it comes to blending colors so I took Milk Chocolate and put it in my crease. Since it was New Year’s Eve, I decided to go for glitter, so I used Marzipan for the lid and extended it to the inner corners. I extended it even more to about a quarter of my lower lash line. Next, I used Semi-Sweet for the outer corner, and lastly I used Haute Chocolate to complete the lower lash line.
That is all for shadow. I then did a simple eyeliner wing, put on some mascara and lower waterline eyeliner, and filled in my brows with a pencil and some tinted brow gel.
I am so lazy when it comes to my face. Basically, I apply one thing on then blend it with a beauty blender, then apply the next product and use the same beauty blender. Before so, I spray Mario Badescu’s Facial Rose Water Facial Spray on my face and on the beauty blender. So in order I used Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation , which is my all time fave. A little goes a long way with this stuff.
My next fave is the Frank Body Lip & Cheek Tint in Cherry Bomb; I use this in replace of blush because it’s cream-based. I have very dry skin, if you didn’t read my Winter Skincare post, so I try to use cream-based or hydrating products like the Milk Makeup Highlighter. I carry this highlighter with me at all times. Its hydrating formula contains mango butter, coconut oil, and avocado oil. It doesn’t clog my pores and it blends easily. For extra New Year’s glam I lightly dust Tarte’s Tartiest PRO glow to go highlighter over the Milk one and just a little bronzer for some added glow.
My favorite part of this whole look is the lips. My new thing is nude or pinkish-nude lipliners with lipgloss. It makes your lips look plump and full. Here, I used NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in Cannes, which is a beautiful ashy pink, and a Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian.
Please ket me know what you think about this look. Share any makeup posts in the comments and I’ll be glad to take a look!
