powder brush / blush brush / liquid brush / bb cream / concealer / strobe cream / blush / powder / highlighter
I am super excited/nervous to share my first face make-up tutorial with ya'll today! I have been asked this question many times, I have gone to multiple make-up artists, and through trial + error I finally have my daily make-up routine down to a point. Now this is when I am actually "getting ready" for the day or for a casual evening, not a night out or special event.
I have spread it out to step by step, may seem like a lot but I wanted to be detailed. So here goes....
With a fresh clean face I apply strobe cream to my cheek bones, forehead, top of the nose, and chin using the 190 foundation brush (I purchased the travel size in a kit). You only need a little about a dime size. This adds a sheer coat that brighten your face through your make-up. It is also very hydrating.
Step 2: Apply BB CREAM by Revlon
Using my hands I apply Revlon's photo-ready bb cream all over my face and under my chin down my neck. Depending on how much coverage you are looking for depends on how much cream to use. It is light and airy but a little does go a long way. I like the BB CREAM because it is not as thick as foundation but has a little more than tinted moisturizer.
After allowing your bb cream to dry apply CONCEALER to your "trouble"spots. I do a check make under each eye, the tip of my noise, my chin, and between my eye brows. For yourself look at where you are the reddest and apply concealer where needed.
I like to add just a bit of powder over my bb cream to dull the shine. I tend to have oily skin (especially living here in Arizona) so gently brushing powder all over the face will soak up the oil. I use the 150 large powder brush for all over coverage. I use C3 for the color, it dulls my redness with keeping close to my skin color.
After powder has set I apply my BLUSH by Clinique directly on my cheek bones. I start closer into my noise and pull the BLUSH up to the very top of the bone where it meets my hair. This give your face a narrow "high" look that we envy about all those models! The color I use is "precious posy" by Clinique. Important note is to not use the powder brush, you will not get the same effect as a blush brush.
Final step is to apply just a touch of luminizer in a few key places to look like the sun has hit you perfectly all day. I apply MAC's "fantasy of flowers" to the area just above the cheek bone (you don't want to cover your blush) to the top of your forehead, bridge of the noise, just above your up (under your noise) and your chin! Remember, just a bit, you dont want to blind people with all that glitter.
And there you have it! That is my typical face make-up routine. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial :)
