A Year of Makeup – Day 022

Hey y’all! Welcome back to my next day of my A Year of Makeup challenge!! Feel free to check out my look and let me know what you think!

Products used in order:

  • Apply a small dot of Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Original) to each eyelid and let dry before applying product
  • Using the Sephora Collection – Moonshadow Baked Palette (In the Nude):
    • Taupe: Blend into Crease, descending pigment towards the inner eyelid
    • Plum: Apply on outer corner of the lid by initially pressing color close to lashline and blending up into the crease and out, to create a ‘V’ shape
    • Peach: Apply to the inner corner of the lid by starting with pressing product by the lashline and blending up towards the crease, but not into it and apply to mid-lid by first pressing close to lashline, and then blending up and towards the inner and outer lid colors, but not blending over them and overpowering them
    • Honey Brown: Using a thin brush, apply tight to lower lash line and softly blend to diminish a hard line
    • Cream: softly blend to highlight brow bone
  • Using about a dime-sized amount of Benefit Cosmetics – The POREfessional Face Primer (Original), I apply this all over my face with my hands
  • Then, I apply about a dime-sized amount of IT Cosmetics – Your Skin But Better™ CC+™ Cream with SPF 50+ (Light) with fingers so the warmth from your hands helps blend the product better and since it doesn’t provide heavy coverage with one pump of product, streaks aren’t a huge concern.
  • With a loose, fluffy face powder brush apply Laura Mercier – Loose Setting Powder (Translucent) all over the face to set product
  • Using the Benefit Cosmetics – Cheek Parade (“Beauty and the Beat” Blush Kit):
    • Hoola:
      • Nose: using the same fluffy eye shadow brush to set under eyes, I use this to lightly contour the sides of my nose
      • Cheeks: using an angled contour/blush brush, I blend this below my cheekbones to create added depth
      • Forehead hairline: Using the same brush as for my cheek contour, I blend this on my upper forehead and into my hairline to give the appearance of a smaller forehead
  • Using the Tarte – Amazonian 12-Hour Blush (Paaarty):
    • Using a fluffy blush brush, I apply this along my cheekbones to bring life back into my cheeks
  • Using the Anastasia Beverly Hills – Glow Kit (Moon Child):
    • Purple Horseshoe:
      • V (cheeks and over outer brow): Using a different angled blush brush, I blend this above my cheekbones and above my eyebrow
    • Pink Heart:
      • Nose: using MUD’s 330 brush, I apply this to enhance the contour of my nose for a thinner look

And here’s the final look:
