Step 1: The Priming Layer
Step 2: The Cheeks and The Eyes
See how we are working our way down the face?? Next up comes the bronzer...yes, I wear bronzer in the winter because I hate feeling "ghostly white" and I tend to think bronzer works better than plain pressed powder. I use Too Faced Bronzed and Poreless and apply with a BIG makeup brush. If I'm on the bargain hunt, I use Rimmel's Natural Bronzer and I like it for everyday use. Then I move to blush..ya'll know I love me some blush, and pink is my favorite hue. I actually use a combination of blushes...first is the powder by NYX and I love the Powder Blush in Rose Garden, and then I apply a small bit of the Blush Stick by NYX in Pink Poppy for that dewy, glowy cheek stain.
Then it's on to the eyes. I start by applying Loreal Infallible Eyeliner in Carbon Black, and then move on to eye shadow. I switch it up between by Urban Decay Naked Two Palette and the ELF eye shadow kit (which is AMAZING for a fraction of the price!!). Then it's on to mascara, and I know I exclaimed my favortism for Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara, which still holds true. Finally, it's on to filling in the eyebrows (because mine are very blonde in color) and I don't use anything fancy here..Maybelline Master Shape in Soft Brown is my go-to.
Step 3: The Lips
You best believe I don't ever leave the house without lipstick/gloss on my pout. Chapped lips are a big no no!! I start with a fairly light lipliner and I have found the NYX Lip Pencil/Crayon works well and lasts a long time. My newest obsession is Too Faced La Creme lipstick in Nude Peach.
That's it...we're done. Gosh that seems like a lengthy process, but I assure you, this is a routine I can have done in less than 10 minutes, it just takes practice. Plus, I hope this shows that you don't have to buy ALL expensive products to have makeup that looks good and stays put.
