Happy baby friday! Today I'm gonna show you how to go from my before to my after pic below using 5 simple steps with your makeup!
Mac Bronzing Powder
Mac Fluidline Gel Liner
Step By Step Guide
Apply bronzing powder above your cheek bones. I like to use bronzing powder instead of blush because my cheeks tend to look flushed on their own. My bronzing powder of choice is Mac in Bronze.
Apply the eyeshadow color of your choice. My naked 2 and naked 3 palette's are my go-to's. For this look I relied on my naked 3 using Limit as my base and giving it a little bit of a darker shimmer by mixing Mugshot and Factory together. Then I use Strange as a highlighter under my brow and in the inner corners of my eyes.
Next, apply your top liner. Using a small angled brush, apply gel eyeliner to the edge of your eyelid. I like Mac's fluidline in Blacktrack and applying it with their 208 brush. I always put on my top liner before my mascara so it's easier to clean up if I make a mistake. Since I'm new to the top liner look I still use my fluidline under my eye as well, but do whatever makes you feel best!
Next, apply your mascara. I like to use two different mascaras to make sure my lashes are full of volume, extra long but not clumped together. In order to achieve this look I first apply my Mac Zoom Fast Black Lash mascara to thicken and lengthen my lashes. Then, I apply my Mac Studio Fix Bold Black Lash mascara to get rid of any lashes that clumped together. I repeat this step until I get my desired look.
Last but not least apply your lipstick! I'm not super big on bold colors (there are rare times I pull them out) so my go to colors are Mac's Pure Zen, Mac's Coral Bliss, and Revlon's Color Burst Lip Butter in Pink Lemonade (that I usually pair with Revlon's color burst lip gloss in Bellini). For this look I went with Coral Bliss.
Then Ta-Da you're done!
Simple and easy to apply makeup in 5 easy steps! And remember, you can substitute any colors or brands for each step, these are just my personal preferences :).
Have a great day!
