Ok, so here’s a hundred different shots of my head, haha! I wanted to show you how the makeup looks in different light and on different angles because that’s one of the things I loooooove about Beautycounter. It looks good every which way you turn unlike other makeup I’ve worn that looks good in my bathroom and then I check it in the car mirror and I look like a clown! No surprises here though. And even though I’m wearing a full face of makeup, it feels weightless, and I feel like it looks weightless too (even though it’s working hard to cover my blemishes and markings from the sun, age, and from picking at my face)! So here’s what I did for this special night out with my husband:
-I used two drops of our brightening oil which brightens your complexion, helps fade those markings I mentioned above, and acts as a hydrating primer too.
-then I used my retractable foundation brush to apply my foundation (Honey) all over my face. I followed that with my concealer pen in light under my eyes and on any spots still revealing blemishes.
-Next came blush in melon and then bronzer in dune under my cheekbones, temple area, and along my jawline to help give it a defined look. I finished that by using the shade “lace” from my iconic palette as a highlighter on the tops of my cheekbones and up around my eyes a bit.
-I then used my eyebrow pencil in light to help fill in and define my brows.
-then the eyes-I used last years’ special edition palette (see my stories) and put gilded very lightly on my whole lid (all colours only need to be applied lightly because they’re so pigmented-one light dab of your brush will do both lids!) and then a dab of cashmere in the centre of my lid and in the inner corners. Then I added the drama with storm in the outer corners and a wee bit of charcoal over there too and on my lower lash line. Once I blended that I used our black eye pencil to line my eyes and coated my lashes with a few coats of our volumizing mascara.
-one quick swipe or Petal sheer lipstick and I was feelin’ pretty good and ready to celebrate.
