FOTD: Bronze Satin Eyes

20 Apr

Hey everyone! Just another quick face of the day post today. Today I just did an easy bronze eye using satin shadows mainly in the Naked palette, and also one from Maybelline. Because I did a simple smokey eye, I paired it with a slight pink blush and a bright hot pink lip. Hope you like it!! 🙂

My Every Day Foundation/Makeup Routine (BEDA 04)

5 Apr

So, I totally fell asleep as soon as I got home last night after school so I’m sorry I didn’t post yesterday. I’m going to post this now, and post another tonight to make up for it. I’m posting this from my phone so I’m sorry for any spelling mistakes. I’ll fix them when I get home. So lets get going. For this post, I didn’t photograph the products I used, I only photographed a step by step of my face. But I will put the names of the products as I go.

image

Bear in mind that this is going to be a very natural look. First thing to do is wash your face. I use a Vichy cleanser every morning. Then I moisturize with the Seaweed mattifying day cream from the body shop.

image

After that, I always apply a foundation base. I just started using the Garnier Nutrisse BB Cream and I love it, so that’s what I’m wearing here. It gives a nice sheer glowy coverage…. But its a little too sheer for me.

image

So I apply some liquid concealer. The one I use is L’oreal True Match concealer in neutral light. I put it on the areas shown here to lighten those spots on my face. I purposely buy one that is lighter than my natural skin tone to brighten up my face and help me to look more awake.

image

I like to blend the concealer out with a pinched blush brush.

image

I then set the concealer under my eyes with the bare minerals multitasking concealer in summer bisque.

image

Then I use a foundation of some kind…. It doesn’t really matter which one. Just something to add a bit more coverage. Today I used a powder mineral foundation. I blend it with a flat top kabuki brush all over my face and down past my jaw line onto the neck.

image

Then I add blush. Today I used Mac’s sheer tone blush in pink swoon.

image

Then I add some bronzer to contour and add some colour. I used NYC Sunny. I use it to contour my temples, then blend down onto the hollows of my cheeks. Then I shade under my jawbone and down onto my neck, and blend. All using an angled face contouring brush. My favourite face countouring brush is the one from NYX.

image

Then I set everything with a translucent powder. I used one from Marcelle. I can’t remember the name, but I have a photograph of it in my March favorites post. Then I highlighted the high points of my face and the inner corners if my eyes as well as my eye lids with the stila prime color in kitten.

image

Finished face. I added a white shadow on my lid and brow bone, and a mid tone grey to the crease. Then just put some eyeliner on my tight line, and mascara. Usually I skip the shadow, but today I felt like doing a bit extra. Also I used the Maybelline baby lips lip balm in Quenched.

Eyes:
Panorama eyeshadow trio by Smashbox
Annabelle Smoothliner in black
Annabelle Le Big Show mascara in black
