I posted on Instagram a picture of me with a full face of makeup that I did for Easter gatherings and asked if anyone would like to know how I did it – so here it is!
Let’s break it down into parts: eyes, lips, face
- Eyes – I used a tarte palette (tarlette in bloom) but I basically used a light brown all over and a slightly darker brown in the crease. I didn’t want a sharp line so I didn’t use tape to cut it (favourite trick for a sharp edge). And BLEND. The best part and it creates a soft effect. I then used my skinny eyeliner by Marc Jacobs (Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner). I make dots along my lash line, and then just connect the dots! And I used my Voluminous L’Oreal mascara – a classic favourite.
- Lips – Simple. Chapstick. I love Nivea.
- Face – I started with my Clinique Moisturizer (moisture surge extended thirst relief), and then my Estée Lauder serum (Idealist) and then my foundation – double wear by Estée Lauder. So good, I have done a review on it and I loved it. I don’t usually conceal I just build up coverage where I need it, which is a great product feature of the double wear. Then I set with powder, I used Rimmel Stay Matte.
I don’t always do a full face, I’m usually a 10 minutes and out the door girl but this was super easy and made me feel great (hence the selfie).
Let me know what you think!
