Products I used for my face:
- Primer: Nivea Men After Shave Balsam in Sensitive (thanks to the recommendation of NikkieTutorials)
- Dark Circles: KIKO Milano – Dark Circle Tone Eraser in 02 Orange and over that with KIKO Milano – Dark Circle Concealer in 02 Peach
- Foundation: Maybelline – Fit Me Foundation in 120 classic ivory with a little bit of KIKO Milano – Universal Fit – Hydrating Fluid Foundation in Warm Beige 30
- Spots: Rimmel – Wake Me Up Concealer in Classic Beige
- Under-Eye: Maybelline – Fit Me Concealer in 15 Fair
- Powder: Rimmel – Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent
- Contour: Bourjois – Délíce de Poudre in 52 Peaux mates
- Blush: KIKO Milano – Rebel Bouncy Blush in 03 Treasure Rose
- Highlight: The Balm – Mary-Lou Manizer
For a base I applied my primer, with the Nivea one you have to work the product in until it gets sticky and trust me when I say a little goes a long way. Because my dark circle are at their worst in the moment I used a orange toned concealer and then a peach colored one over that. Then I applied a mixture of the foundations (2 pumps Maybelline, 1 small dot of KIKO) and applied those with a beauty blender all over my face, don’t forget to blend down your neck. Because the foundation hadn’t the coverage I wanted I used the Rimmel concealer to cover any spots that you could see through and to highlight under the eyes I used a lighter concealer. To set my under-eye and T-zone I applied my powder with a large powder brush and then continued to contour my face. I was very light handed so that the contour wouldn’t be too hard. After I was done with contouring I moved on with blush and highlighter. I used the highlighter on top of my cheek bones, the tip of my nose and on my cupids bow.
Products I used for my eyebrows:
- Taupe colored shadow
- Rimmel – Brow this way in 002 Medium Brow
I filled my eyebrows in with a taupe colored eyeshadow and then used the brow gel from Rimmel to hold them into place. (Please excuse my messy eyebrows, need to get them done asap!)
Products I used for my eyes:
- essence – All that Greys Eyeshadow Palette in 01 7 Shades of Rose and Grey
- L’Oréal Paris – Volume Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara
- Catrice – Luxury Lashes Waterproof Volume Mascara
To create this eye make up I started with the lightest shade in the palette and used it as a brow bone and inner corner highlight. Later on I used a bit of the Mary-Lou Manizer to intensify the highlight even more. Then I used the darker pink shade in the crease as a blending color. After that I applied the second color from the right all over the lid and then ,using the blending brush I used to apply the pink color with, blended the crease and lid color together. I then repeated this step once more and after that I took the darkest shade on a smaller precision shader brush and concentrated the color to the roots of the lashes and then blended it up lightly. To blend the darkest color into the base color I picked up the second color again and blended it over the line between those two shades. For the under-eye I combined the two darkest colors and blended them carefully. After that I took the dark pink shade and blended it around the outer edge of the colors. To finish the look I first applied a coat of Volume Million Lashes Mascara to the bottom and lower lashes and finished it up with another coat of the Catrice mascara.
Products I used for my lips:
- lip liner in a dark pink color
- Gerard Cosmetics – Lipstick in Rodeo Drive
To outline the lips I used a drugstore lip liner from the brand Trend it up! and over that I applied the Lipstick in Rodeo Drive.
And that’s the finished look guys! Like I said it’s pretty quick and easy! I hope you enjoyed this entry, make sure to give it a thumbs up if you did!
I wish you all a wonderful day!
