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.

 

 

 

 

Holiday Full Face

Hello ! Ok so getting right back into it – it’s thanksgiving in Canada and soon to be America. So here was my full face of products to look amazing and flawless.

I start with my Estée Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Serum and layer my everyday moisturizer on top. I then go in with my Tartelette palette by Tarte and use lots of browns, nudes, and of course some gold or silver. I then exfoliate my lips with a tooth brush to get off dead skin and apply some lip balm (I love blistex). As I’m letting this soak in I then move onto my face. For a flawless but buildable look I use the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation. It’s incredible (I did a review previously). I’m using a new powder by Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin pressed powder. This has some coverage as well, which is great as my acne-prone skin is breaking out with all the turkey, stuffing and ham happening. I then touch up with some Mac Bronzer and finish with some highlight. I love the Clinique powder, no I have not been able to find it again – I place it only on my under eyes instead of concealer. It does not crease or slide off by the end of the night. I finished with some liner by Rimmel and a dark burgundy lipstick. And finally my love of mascara Voluminous by L’Oreal. I set everything with my L’Oreal Infallible finishing spray.

This routine for my oily skin not only provides non-cakey coverage but lasting coverage and gives me confidence for all the lunches and dinners that come with holidays.
