A flawless make up look can be quite tricky to achieve, especially if you don’t like to use powder products (I hate base powders!).
I just think it makes you look so much older using powders since it enhances fine lines and wrinkles, it makes the skin look dull and dead, at last but not least, it looks so heavy on the skin! So to create this look I only worked with cream product for the base and I topped it off with a mauve lip color. Maybe not the first color one thinks of in the Summer but I am so tired of pink and coral at the moment!
BASE - I started off with Bare Minerals high coverage concealer in light underneath my eyes, I gently applied one stroke under each eye with the brush that comes with the package, then I dabbed it in with a moist beauty blender.
When it had dried a bit I applied MAC pro longwear concealer in NC20 on top of it to give it a MAJOR under eye brightening experience. Ladies, if you ever have dark circles this combo is what you gotta try.
So long are the days when you thought one concealer would do the job, now I almost always “stack” the concealer on top of each other. However a note of caution, this can be quite heavy on the skin around the eye are so this is not for everyday use. Save it for the parties or date nights instead!
After that I used the fluid foundation från IDUN Minerals in the color sand and freja applied with the BareMinerals seamless brush (one of my faves!!).
I actually skip most of the contouring for this look since it can look a bit heavy in the summer. I used the L’oréal la soleil sponge bronzer and dabbed that on the area where I contour (underneath cheekbones, jaw line, forehead etc).
Just to add a bit of bronze and glow to the look. I skipped highlighter completely!
Eyes & brows – I first applied Lily Lolo eyeshadow primer with a flat eyeshadow brush all over my eye lids and towards the nose. This make the make up last longer and the pigment in the eyeshadows really pop outs!
The eyeshadows I used were Sephora single shadow in “218”, IDUN Minerals palette in “Norrlandssyren”, L’oréal Paris single shadow in “Nude”.
L’oréal Paris superliner in “Black”, Victoria Secret Volume Mascara and Eylure Individual lashes in medium and short.
For brows I used both Anastasia Brow wiz in Taupe and Smashbox brow pen in “blonde”.
Lips - I used Maybelline lip liner in “nude perfection” and Sephora lip liner in “beige pink”. Topped it off with Lily Lolo lipgloss in “clear”.
