In these warm summer days, I like minimal products, I usually stick to just mascara, eyeliner so I don't have to worry about touching through out the day, but I still want to look put together when going to run errands or going to social events that are outdoors in the beautiful summer weather.
This would also be beneficial to teens who are beginners and want to look their best, without needing a bunch of products.
Before applying any products, make sure to have a clean and moisturized face, we need a fresh canvas. I know, I look scary, I haven't had a decent night of sleep. This is the perfect opportunity to do this, I also need to conceal so imperfections.
I have a tip for you, if you are like me and have a problem with oily skin, you are never sure if you put too much moisturizer. I wait a few minutes after applying moisturizer, allowing it to sink into the skin, if you feel oiler in certain places, for me it's my T-zone. Blot away with either blotting sheets or toilet paper.
If you have unblemished skin and an even skin tone, then you could probably skip this step, lucky you. ;) But if you're like me and you need a bit of help, then a tinted moisturizer is what you want. You can skip applying a moisturizer if you are applying a tinted moisturizer. I usually concentrate the product in the center of my face, where I am most red and where I have a blemish. I then blend out with my fingers.
If you are pleased with how your skin looks now you can proceed to your eyes, but if you need to conceal some imperfections, then go for it. I will go more in-depth with concealers in a following post. You can blot a little if you need to, it gets a bit hot in my bathroom, so I am going to.
Now, focusing a little on the eye area. I am not going fill my brows that much, just the areas that less full. I will also dedicate more time for brows in another blog post. Take a brow comb and brush until they are pointing a pleasing direction or at least in the same direction. Take your favorite brow pencil, Fill and shape to your liking and finish with a brow gel.
If you have some discolorations on your eyelids, you can take your finishing or foundation powder with either a fluffy brush or a powder puff and pat it on your eyelids lightly.
No take your favorite waterproof liquid or pencil, brown, black or if you are feeling brave, a funky color and apply a thin line.
I like to apply my under eye concealer before I apply mascara, if you don't have dark circles, then you can skip this step, lucky you ;). But if you are like me and you need the extra help, take your favorite concealer and set it with your finishing powder.
Now curl your lashes and apply two coats of your favorite mascara.
Now to finish with lips, you can apply a tinted lip balm, lipstick, lip gloss or just lip balm.
Here's Preview of what's next!
I'm going to talk about eye shadows that you can just apply and have a multi dimension look, without needing 3 different eye shadows.
