TGIF y’all! In honor of the weekend, I decided to share with y’all what my go to going-out face looks like. It consists of a full coverage base and a neutral smokey eye.
// Base //
I start off with the L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Primer. It’s got a whipped texture that I love. I focus this mainly on my t-zone because that’s where I get the most oily. I follow it with my NAKED skin foundation in the shade 4.0. I mix up how I apply this so sometimes it’s with my damp Beauty Blender, sometimes with my kabuki foundation brush from Sigma or sometimes with my Real Techniques foundation brush. I follow that with Bare Minerals warmth as my bronzer and add my Nars Blush in Deep Throat.
// Eyes //
I try and prime my eyes if I can remember, but I usually always make sure I get foundation over my eyelids just as some sort of base. My eyeshadow differs from night to night but I always use my NAKED palette. Some of my favorite combos are: Sin on the lid and Naked in the crease, Half Baked on the lid and Naked in the crease, or Toasted on the lid and Buck in the crease. I always add some thick liner to top it off. My favorite is the NYX felt tip eyeliner. As for mascara, I love anything for volume. My current favorite is Covergirl Flamed Out.
// Brows //
You can never neglect the brows, y’all. I always start by brushing mine out with a spoolie and then I apply my Anastasia brow powder duo and fill my brows in. I perfect them afterwards by brushing them out again and then I sometimes put some hairspray on my spoolie and brush them to set them in place all night.
// Lips //
I love a pop of color on my lips since my face and eyes are normally pretty neutral. My favorite lip products right now are Revlon Colorburst Balm + Stain in Crush, and the Revlon lip butters in Candy Apple and Lollipop.
