Since summer is almost around the corner. I thought what better way to celebrate than to share a look based on one of my favourite drugstore palette. Also, i have not been liking my elf concealer recently so i decided to get a different concealer and try it out. I also re-purchased my favourite mascara. So let’s get started.
P.s. Always make sure to have your makeup wipe close to you while applying your makeup. You never know when you might need it.
This Mary kay primer is one of my favourite beauty product. It feels very smooth on the skin. When applied it is like there is nothing on your skin but if you feel your skin, you will notice the difference. I applied my MARY KAY face primer then i applied my ELF PREP AND HYDRATING primer. While i wait for it to settle into my skin, i exfoliate my lips and applied a lip balm to keep it hydrated.
After brushing my eyebrows in the direction in which they grow, I lined my eyebrows with the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Concealer in shade dark cocoa using a concealer brush. I applied the NEW MAYBELLINE EYEBROW DEFINER in the shade deep brown (The NYX eyebrow definer i had before was dry and broke easily which was frustrating). Then i applied the Essence make me brow eyebrow gel mascara (browny brows) to keep it in place.
P.s. when this palette launched, i couldn’t get it anywhere in town, it took me 2 weeks to find the palette. I applied my COVERGIRL Lid Lock Eyeshadow Primer evenly on my eyelids. Then i applied my eyeshadow. I applied #1 all over my eyelids as transition color, then i applied #2 above my crease. I applied #3 and #4 into my crease. Then i applied #5 into my outer crease area (don’t forget to blend). Finally, i applied #6 on my eyelids.
I applied the new MAYBELLINE Super Stay 24H Foundation in Truffle . It was full coverage. It blended well with my skin (i dont think it was the right shade for me). The other Maybelline fit me foundation in 360 was darker than this one which left me confused because i am pretty sure 362 is meant to be darker than 360.
I used the MAYBELLINE Concealer in Tan for my under eye, forehead, both ends of my lips, chin and other places with spots. Then blended the concealer with a blending sponge and brush. Setting it with ELF HD Powder in Soft Luminance. After a while, i dusted the setting powder away with a stipling brush.
Mascara: MAYBELLINE Volum’ Express Mascara
I am not a big fan of fake eyelashes because my eyelashes are naturally curly and it feels very weird on my face. Thats why i stick to mascara that just enlogates my eyelashes.I can say this mascara does its job very well. To get the full effect, you have to apply it under and over your eyelashes.
I used my MARY KAY powder with a powdering brush all over my face to avoid any flashback from the setting powder. For the lips, i used the ELF Transformer Lip Palette in Berry. Then i set everything the ELF Matte Magic Mist & Set Spray .
Till nxt tym
