Birthday Full Face Makeup Routine*

Hello again!

So I recently turned 23 and although I don’t wear makeup often, it was fun to do it in full for this occasion.

Let’s get into it.

I started with my Clinique moisture surge moisturizer (not imaged above), and followed up with my Estée Lauder Idealist Serum. I then went in with my Tartelette in bloom eye shadow palette – that I am absolutely still obsessed with.

712-alt-2 I went in with a shimmery light nude (first column, third row) and followed into the corner of my eye with a red-ish brown (fourth column, third row). I blended out with a more matted brown (second column, first row) and highlighted with a nice light shimmer (third column, first row).

I went into the corner of my eye with the NYX wonder pencil to really make it look open and pop.

I then buffed in my BareMinerals Complexion Rescue tinted moisturizer, and covered dark circles and blemishes with my Clinique Beyond Perfecting powder foundation. I love this combination because it is medium coverage yet still looks light and airy.

I finally finished with L’Oreals new Voluminous lash primer (amazing) and topped it with their original black Voluminous mascara. And yes – I completely forgot to take a picture of my finished face.

Overall, this makeup made me feel confident, fresh, put together and I had fun doing it.

Review: Beyond Perfecting Powder Foundation + Concealer *Clinique*

My first semester back at school is finally finished and it is summer! But I have come to love a new product that has me out of the door in 5 minutes or less and provides just enough coverage that my skin is natural but a little livelier.

I suffer from acne, and this does not cover it. But as I get older I am embracing my “flaws” that in reality are not really flaws at all. This powder foundation keeps me non-shiny and oil-free which is great for my skin type. It is so light and refreshing. It prides itself on being non pore clogging and I could not agree more!

It retails at about $35 CAD – which in hindsight for a higher end product is not bad at all. As a bonus the packaging is super sleek and makes me feel very sophisticated (and who doesn’t love that?)

4/5 thumbs up x
