Makeup looks are something I’m hoping to make more of a regular thing here this year for you ladies. I am no makeup artist by any means but have always loooooved doing my own makeup and experimenting with new products. I love how it instantly transforms your look and makes you feel more pulled together (because trust me, this mama of two needs some pulling together most days;). A couple weeks ago I went outside my usual subtle looks for something more playful and loved it! It was so fun and really easy so thought I would put together a crazy quick post breaking down all the beauty products I used to create this look…
Here’s What I Used:
My skin has been a little bit dry lately so I always start with my go-to makeup primer (it has SPF so added bonus).
Next, I color correct my under eye circles with this stick. I really only recommend it if you have really dark under-eye circles like me – if you don’t you can skip this step and only use concealer at the end. This orange-colored stick helps cancel out/neutralize the dark circles and gives you an even playing field to apply your concealer.
I’m all about a little contour and highlight so I use this duo palette to contour under my cheekbones, down the sides of my nose and around my hairline. In the same palette, I use the highlight on the top of cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and right under my eyebrows. Both the bronzer and highlight in this kit are super natural looking which I love!
I wish I was blessed with good brows but sadly I wasn’t so I have to fill them in every day. I’ve been using this brow set for years (I use the darkest color).
Now the playful part…the fun pop of color. Usually I like to use several shadows when creating a smokey eye but this one was just one pretty color. The purple color I used was in a Tarte palette (unfortunately sold out pretty much everywhere now) but This One in my most use makeup palette is super similar and would work just as well. Apply it all over your lid up to your crease then extend it out if you want to a little more dramatic winged effect.
Lastly, I always set with this setting powder.
And that’s it! Hope you girls like this quick makeup breakdown! xo
