Here are the details for this look in the order of application:

  1. Cleanse.  I cleanse my skin in the shower with St. Ives Apricot Scrub. (www.stives.com)
  2. Follow up with African Black Soap Problem Skin toner.(https://www.sheamoisture.com/african-black-soap-problem-skin-toner.html)
  3. Apply The Pore Professional Primer to the visible areas of large pores.  I usually don’t place this all over my face but to my cheek area.  This is where I have more pore visability.  I This was just applied with my fingers.(https://www.benefitcosmetics.com/us/en/collections/porefessional?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIlqHL1Myx1QIVCxCBCh2B-QYAEAAYASAAEgKvWvD_BwE)

    4.  Color Correct. I used the Ruby Kisses Concealer in RCR18 (Peach).  I picked this one             up from a local beauty supply store but found that you could order it online as well.           I use my fingers for blending.

    5.  Brows, Brows, Brows. For today’s brows, I used the E.L.F.  Brow kit in Medium.                    (http://www.elfcosmetics.com/p/eyebrow-kit?dept=eye-eyebrows&color_id=10399) I            applied with the E.L.F. Eyebrow Duo Brush                  (http://www.elfcosmetics.com/p/eyebrow-duo-brush?dept=eye-brushes)  I outline and fill my brows with the product and then I blend with spoolie on the other end of this brush.

5.  Once my brows are done, I clean them up with a  lighter concealer on the bottom. Today, for the bottom I used the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer in the color “Tan Sand” and the E.L.F. concealer brush. (http://tartecosmetics.com/tarte-item-shape-tape-contour-concealer?locale=USA&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIp4iB0dGx1QIVgzRpCh0u7gggEAAYASAAEgJUA_D_BwE) For the top, I used the LA girl Pro Concealer in the color “Beautiful Bronze.”  (https://www.lagirlusa.com/products/hd-pro-concealer?variant=7709998789)  I use a Real Techniques Brush for blending the concealer.  I can’t find the name of it but it is like a tapered foundation.  It is my favorite Real Techniques brush.  (www.realtechniques.com) I blend the light color on one side and the darker on the other side.

6.  Once my brows are done, I set them with Maybelline’s  Clear Mascara. (https://www.maybelline.com/eye-makeup/mascara/great-lash-clear-mascara)

7.  I didn’t use any extra eye primer for my eyes today because frankly, I just didn’t have the time.  I just pulled the concealer down from when I cleaned up my brows.  So the color used on my lids would have been the Tarte Shape Tape in Tan Sand.  I blended my lids with my fingers.

8.  Eyes. For the base, I actually used a blush as my base.  I just love the way that it looks; it is very natural looking.  The color is called “Rendezvous.”  This was applied all over the lid.  Next I started with the color “Orange Crush” from the Coastal Scents 252 Ultimate Palette.  This was applied to the inner corner and spread to the middle of the lid.  I then added the color “Marmalade.” from the same palette.  I lined the under eye. with the NYX Jumbo milk pencil and then smudged the “Marmalade” on the waterline.  I used the Maybelline Master Graphic to create a wing.  I was planning to wear lashes but they did not want to cooperate so instead, I put on the Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.

9. Foundation/Face. I used Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation for my face.  This foundation is full-coverage and is slowly becoming one of my favorites.  I am the shade 9.75.  (https://www.urbandecay.com/all-nighter-liquid-foundation-by-urban-decay/ud778.html) I used the Maybelline Fit Me in the shade 330 as a finishing powder.  Next I used another favorite of mine,  Makeup Revolution’s Vivid Baked Bronzer in the shade “Rock on World.” A quick spray all over the face with the Mario Badescu Rose Water before applying the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in the shade “Rose Gold Lights.” I did not do any baking or highlighting.

10.  I did not use a liner for my lips today, as I just wanted a natural looking lip.  I used the Mary Kay Lip Gloss in the Color Beach Bronze.  I sealed the complete look with MAC Studio Fix Plus Spray.   I think in the future, I will have a separate blog with just a list of links with the products used.

I hope that you enjoy the look and would love to see if you try it yourself. If you are not following me already, please do so at surviving_beautifully_ on Instagram.  Thanks for reading.  Until next time.
