So if you want to learn how I did my make up step by step, keep reading! I’ve listed all of the products that I used (there’s a lot) at the end!
Eyes: I used the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Palette for all of the eye shadows! (I numbered them on the picture because I lost the insert that has their actual names). First is the light brown shade (1) and that went into my crease on a fluffy blending brush. This is the “transition color” that will help keep everything looking blended as I go in with darker shades.
Next, I went in with a slightly darker brown (2) on a smaller, denser blending brush. I put this color a little further down in the creases of my eyes and blended from outer corner to inner corner using windshield-wiper motions. I did this until it was blended and the color that I wanted.
For the outer V, I used an even smaller brush to concentrate the dark brown shadow (3) in the outer corners of my eyes and blended it with the lighter shades.
For my eyelids, I put the darker shimmer shade (4) all over using a small shader brush and then put the lighter shimmer shadow (5) on top in the centers of the lids.
Lashes: I always, always curl my lashes first, and then added my Arbonne It’s a Long Story Mascara to the top lashes. I wait until the end to do the lower lashes.
Foundation/Concealer: I start by putting dots of my L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation all over my face, and then blend in using my Real Techniques Beauty sponge.
Once that is blended, it is time for my “war paint”. I put concealer in upside-down triangles for the under-eye area, then some on my forehead, upper lip to define my cupids bow, and on my chin. I blend everything in with the pointed end of the beauty sponge, and set it with my Cover Girl Translucent powder.
Contour: I used my Too Face Chocolate Soleil bronzer and a small contour brush to really define my cheek contour, and then blended it with a larger, fluffier brush. I also did the same around my forehead, temples, my jawline and my nose.
I also added some blush (MAC Margin) onto my cheekbones and blended that with the bronzer.
Brows: Same as I did in my 15-minute make up routine, I used my Anastasia Brow Wiz and set them with brow gel. I then went in with the final eye shadow (6) and a small shader brush to highlight my brow bone.
Lower Lash Line: I always use the lightest brown eye shadow (1) to smudge right at the lash line, and then add black kohl liner (L’Oreal) after so that things don’t get too dark or smoky for this lighter brown look under the eyes. Last, I add my Maybelline Falsies Waterproof mascara to the bottom lashes
