Makeup of the Day Before and After:
Makeup of the Day Tutorial:
These are the products you will use to create this look.
Step 1: Add a sunscreen to your face to protect from the sun. I used Coola Classic Sunscreen in Fresh Mango
Step 2: Prime your face using any type of face primer. This will prolong the wear of your makeup. I used SmashBox Photo Finish Primer.
Step 3: Apply a thin even layer of a light coverage foundation to the skin. You can build up the layers if you need more coverage. I used Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation in Ivory.
Step 4: Conceal the under eyes and highlight the face with a stick concealer. Make sure to work in a triangle shape underneath the eyes and blend well. I used Covergirl TruBlend Fixstick in Fair.
Step 5: Apply a face powder to set the makeup. I used Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder in Ivory.
Step 6: Apply an eyebrow pencil to fill in any sparse spots. I used Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color.
This is what my face looks like after the first six steps are applied.
Step 7: Now onto the eyes! Prime the eyes using a concealer or an eye shadow base. This will lock in the eye shadow as well as bring out the eye shadow color. I used Evelyn Iona Concealer.
Step 8: Now for the eye shadow. I used Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette
1) apply this color to the brow bone.
2) apply this color to the eye lid
3) blend this color into the crease
4) blend this color lightly in the crease and build up to your desired intensity
5) apply this color to the outer V of the eye. Blend until your desired intensity
Step 9: Apply wing eyeliner. I used Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Cat Eye Collection Liquid Eyeliner.
Step 10: Apply your favorite mascara to the top and bottom lashes. I used Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (personally I love the name).
This is what the finished eyes will look like.
Step 11: Now to finish the face. Apply a bronzer around the edges of the face to bronze. I didn’t do a heavy contour because it is summer time and I was just going for a summery glow. I used NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny.
Step 12: Apply Blush to the apples of the cheek and sweep back to your hairline. I used the shimmery pink side of The Beauty Crop’s Blush Duo in Papaya Don’t Preach.
Step 13: Apply a highlighter to the top of the cheek bones. I used Laura Geller Baked Highlighter in Golden Rose.
Step 14: Finally finish off your look with a nude lip gloss. I used Too Faced Sweet Sun Shines Lip Gloss in Mocha Freeze.
