Products used in order:

  • First, I start my look by prepping my lips with Fresh – Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 (Petal).
  • Starting with the Emité Make Up – Millesis® Active Eye Light (Shade 101), I blend a small dot of product under each eye with my ring fingertip.
  • Apply a small dot of Too Faced – Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer to each eyelid and let dry before applying product
  • With the Huda Beauty – Eyeshadow Palette (Desert Dusk):
    • Desert Sand: With a loose, fluffy eyeshadow brush, I blend this from lashes to brows to set my eyeshadow primer
    • Eden: Using a fluffy, tapered eyeshadow brush, blend as transition color in area right above crease
    • Amber: Blend into Crease, descending pigment towards the inner eyelid
    • Saffron: 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
    • Celestial: 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
    • Turkish Delight: 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
    • Blood Moon: 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
    • Retrograde & Turkish Delight: Using a thin brush, apply tight to lower lash line and softly blend to diminish a hard line
  • Apply about a dime-sized amount of It Cosmetics – Your Skin But Better™ CC+™ Cream with SPF 50+ (Fair) with fingers so the warmth from your hands helps blend the product better and since it doesn’t provide full coverage, streaks aren’t a huge concern.
  • Using a sample of Stila’s Foundation + Concealer in shade Fair 2, I apply it first with my fingers around my face and down my neck and then follow up with my beautyblender sponge to blend out any streaks and to create an even finish.
  • Using Benefit Cosmetics – Brow Zings Shaping Kit (Dark), I use short, light strokes to fill in and shape my brows with first the cream, then the powder.
  • Finishing my brows with Pixi Beauty – Brow Tamer (Translucent).
  • With a loose, fluffy face powder brush apply Laura Mercier – Loose Setting Powder (Translucent) all over the face to set product
  • Using the Nars – Bronzing Powder (Laguna):
    • 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
    • Temples: Using the same brush as I did for my cheek contour, I blend this in my temples towards my hairline to give the appearance of a thinner face
  • Following with the Anastasia Beverly Hills – Glow Kit (Sweets):
    • Taffy:
      • V: (cheeks and over outer brow): Using a different angled blush brush, I blend this above my cheekbones and above my eyebrow
    • Marshmallow:
      • Nose: using MUD’s 330 brush, I apply this to enhance the contour of my nose for a thinner look
    • Butterscotch:
      • Cupid’s bow: using MUD’s 330 brush, I lightly blend this to create a fuller-looking upper lip
    • Sassy Grape:
      • Inner eye groove: Using MUD’s 330 brush, I apply here to create eyes that look more awake and eye-catching
  • Using the Benefit Cosmetics – Cheek Parade (“Beauty and the Beat” Blush Kit):
    • Galifornia:
      • Using a fluffy blush brush, I apply this along my cheekbones to bring life back into my cheeks
  • Just a few coats of my current mascara to follow: Lancôme – Monsieur Big Mascara (Black)
  • For my lips, I used De Bruyère – Lipgloss (Red Icicle)
