Okay I’m going to be completely honest with all of you. I’m not very neat and tidy when doing my makeup like some people. I have a vanity but since I’ve been a teenager, I’ve always done my makeup on my bed. So typically when I get ready my bed looks like this:
I work better in chaos most of the time. But today, I’m going to show you all a step by step look in how I do my everyday between chaos.
This is the primer that I used for today’s look. I love Smashbox’s primers. This one is a pore fiiller and helps your face achieve that airbrushed look.
This is what the primer looks like on. It’s not colored or anything but this is also a picture of what I look like before this look.
Next, I add my foundation or BB. This is one of my favorites because it doesn’t look pasty and it applies easily. It costs me about $15 and is a Korean brand.
As you can see I applied the BB to my face. The Holika Holika BB comes with an applicator paddle so it’s is easy to grab how much you need without waste.
For step three, blend out your foundation by brush, sponge, etc… my favorite method is the Beauty Blender. I’m sorry it is so dirty, he needs a bath lol
Here it is all blended together! If you use a Beauty Blender, make sure that you wet it before use and you pat. Do not drag across the skin. Also, pro tip, please remember to blend into your neck so it looks natural and not like you’re wearing a mask.
For step four, I didn’t add an application picture because this is just a white powder. This is my favorite finishing powder. The packaging and how smooth it makes your foundation look is fantastic. I use Tarte’s kabuki brush for this powder.
For Step Five, I apply my eye primer. This is the only product that will make my eyeshadow stay put. I have really watery eyes so this is a complete godsend. All you do is take a small amount and rub it onto your eyelid until it is fully blended in. I don’t have an applied picture just because this is a skin color and not noticeable in photos.
For Step Six, I’m using the new Eclipse Inner Glow Creme and seeing how it works for me! I was confused how to apply it since almost every video does it a different way. I prefer cool dark tones for contour instead of bronzer just because I’m not tan and it makes my face look funny.
This is how Eclipse looks out of the compact. This isn’t exactly black, the more you play with it, it can be purple and a dark berry shade as well. Interesting product that uses natural ingredients and smells lovely.
I decided that using my finger to apply the shade as a contour would bet best bet. I just applied it where your contour normally goes. If you make a kissy face and keep it diagonal from the top of your ear, that’s where the contour should go.
Here is what Eclipse looks like when it is fully blended out. I used my Glamour Girls X Lisa Frank brush for this. It was pretty easy to blend. Success.
This is the blush that I used for Step Seven. This was the shattered blush that came in the Beautycon Box.
If you want to apply blush, smile and look for the apples of your cheek and then pat and blend back. That way you don’t look like a clown.
Here is what my end result looks like for my cheek and contour area. I do like mine a bit more dramatic than most but you have to do what makes you comfortable.
For Step Eight, I do my eyebrows. I’m using Wunderbrow Wunder2 in Black. This stuff takes practice to apply and a little goes a long way.
I did one eyebrow fully just so you all can see the difference between them when I do the other.
For Step One in eyebrows, you have to outline the bottom of the brow so they don’t end up too big or crooked.
For Step Two you want to lightly fill in your eyebrow and make the top part of your arch.
For Step Three always remember that the spoolie brushes help make your brows more natural by feathering the product and not keeping harsh lines on the front of your eyebrows.
For Step Nine, I started eyeshadow. I used Kat Von D Innerstellar eyeshadow palette with the middle four colors. I numbered them by steps.
For Step One we will be applying our base shade. This gets added on the eyelid and blending upward to the brow.
Here’s what the shade looks like on the eyelid. You want to keep it on the same form and don’t go crazy and go heavy on the entire eye.
For Step Two, add this shade to your inner crease and blend to the outer crease.
Here’s where you would apply shade step two and blend to the other side of your eye. After I do the initial swipe, I use a windshield wiper back and forth motion until shades one and two look blended.
For Step Three, we add this light lilac shade to the outer crease and blend like mad.
For Step Three, this is where you start the shade. After that, blend on the entire crease like crazy. Typically when I’m trying to blend like a crazy person, I repeat my windshield wiper movement and also move the brush in a small circular motion to add a nice airbrush effect.
After Steps 1-3 are blended, it should look something like pictured above.
The shade pictured here gets applied to the entire eyelid.
Here is what I did with Step Four. I applied it to the entire eyelid and then of course blended it to add a smoky effect.
Here is what Steps 1-4 look like when fully applied and blended. We are almost done!
For Step Ten, were going to be making wings! Wings have been my trademark look since I was 18. It is something you have to practice. Pictured is my holy grail eyeliner, Clio Kill Black Pen Liner. This is a Korean brand that is completely waterproof and lasts very long. It costs about $15.
What I do for the first step, I draw an upward line where my eye ends. It doesn’t have to be perfect since it gets filled in.
For step two, you draw a line from the stopping point of your original line on a diagonal to the end of your eye.
For the third step, fill in your wings and get creative! You can add designs and dots for added flair.
For Step Eleven, add your favorite mascara. I really like Better Than Sex Waterproof right now. I didn’t add a picture because I was pretty sure this is self-explanatory.
For Step Twelve, I have to add a highlight. Sometimes I do but the majority of the time I don’t since I wear glasses. This product is a hologram natural highlighter that smells great.
You can see on my upper cheekbone that it adds a subtle pink and purple glow. It was applied with fingertip.
For Step Thirteen, you can add a lip shade. I chose Black Moon Cosmetics Immortal. This came in the Black Metals Trinity Collection. These are very unique and a must have.
For the first step, I always define my bottom lip first just so I know how to shape my top lip and curves. After I applied my bottom lip, I smacked my lips together for a base line to the top lip.
For Step Two, I added more of the liquid formula and finished my top lip with the curves and bow. All I have to do is spray setting spray and let down my hair because I seriously look so different with my hair back like this.
Ready…. Here comes….
The finished look! This is typically my normal routine and I’m so glad that I decided to share it with you all!
There you have it! Out of that entire bed mess, I did make something fun! If you all liked this step by step, let me know and I’ll do more! Xoxo
