So here it is my little black bag. Every girl needs one.
Many girls wear a traditional foundation but because I have been fighting Melasma for many years I go for a heavier coverage. Currently I like to use a few products mixed together. This is continuously changing for me, I love to try new products. Pictured is MAKE UP FOREVER full coverage waterproof concealer in level 5 which I mix with MAC Prolong wear concealer in NC35 mostly because its the perfect color combo for the transition between Winter and spring. Once I’ve mixed them on the top of my hand I put it on with a Mineral Powder brush #45 from Sephora. It will give your application that air brushed look most women desire.
Once I apply my foundation I apply my actual concealer Studio Finish from MAC this has a very thick dewy texture in NC30 slight lighter shade than my foundation color to help contour. I like to apply it with a PRO Airbrush Concealer brush #57 from Sephora. Then I use my index finger to gently bled it.
Recently I have been setting my foundation with the Prep+Prime transparent finishing powder from MAC, for areas that may need a little more coverage I still love my Studio Fix in C4. I apply this with one of my favorite MAC Brushes #134
Bronzer and Blush:
Hello cheeks. I Love blush!!! I have a favorite bronzer and I have said it before Cargo is my go to brand! My color of chose is Matte Bronzer BMZ-02 often when in a hurry I use it as a blush as well. I don’t have a favorite blush color I like to switch it up. I typically go with a brighter color to brighten my face, Melba from MAC is the color photographed. I have used a ton of brushes but I always find myself going back to my MAC #129 brush.
Now that I have my glamours eyelash extensions : ) I don’t stress as much about doing my eyes but in the same sentence I love them so much I cant wait to do my eyes. I like to keep it very simple on a day to day. Prime my lids with MAC pro long-wear Paint pot Color Soft Ochre ( very natural )sometime I just use my index finger to apply a very thin layer. Then I apply my go to shadow Cork (darker color) from MAC and Rice paper (lighter color) from MAC. I use the thicker brush MAC #224 to apply the dark and light. I apply the dark on the outside and light on the inside, then I use the thinner brush MAC #220 to apply Cork under my eye as a powdered liner, this give a very soft subtle smokey look.
I think I have explained this before, Lips are the death of me I can never find a color I love so I am constantly switching it up. The past couple weeks I have turned to cheap liners and surprisingly I like it. NYX Nude waterproof lip liner is amazing and then put a little concealer in the center of my bottom lip and then layer of setting powder to help it say on, typically I use the big brush that has left over powder from powdering my face and throw on some lip gloss MAC Please me is beautiful for the Spring time.
I have spend the last year growing my eyebrows out, it was so hard not to pluck those random hairs but the end result was worth the wait. I was using a brow pencils and I tried them all. I decided to try a new method of using a brow gel and a brush. It takes a little but longer but looks more natural and stays all day. I really like MAKE UP FOREVER Aqua Brow waterproof color #10, then I apply it with a stiff angled brush the one I use is from Smashbox #12 but you can use any brush just make sure its stiff.
Tools I cant live without:
From the picture starting on top My Extended Play Mascara from MAC in black it has a nice thin brush for easy application especially for bottom lashes.
Next tool down is a razor that I use to gently remove the peach fuzz from my face to give a nice smooth feel. I use this as needed. You can purchase them almost anywhere now.
Below that is simply a disposable eyelash wand I use to comb my eyebrow and eyelashes before applying brow gel and mascara.
Lastly Tweezers Cant leave home without them!
