Step 1: First thing’s first, The most important step is to wash your face thoroughly before applying any products. Use your favorite cleanser in order to provide a fresh palette to work with. After your face is clean continue your regular skin care routine.
Step 2: Apply a good sunscreen. I recommend using SPF 50+ due to the Houston weather.
Step 3: Next use primer to fill in fine lines and pores. I use the Laura Mercier Radiance primer which gives a light pearl shimmer. It’s great for every skin tone and instantly minimizes imperfections and gives you a fresh look.
Step 4: My favorite foundation of all time is Armani Luminous Silk. It’s super lightweight but still gives great coverage. It creates a silky look without making me look too glossy.
Step 5: Use NARS concealer for extra coverage under your eye area. As a highlighter, select two shades lighter than the concealer shade and place on high points of the face.
Step 6: Armani Fluid Sheer is a great illuminator and really enhances my foundation when it needs a little extra something. It has buildable coverage for a bronzing or contouring effect. May use as a blush or can be paired with an alternate blush (see next step).
Step 7: Bobbi Brown’s blush is a classic product and speaks for itself.
Step 8: Dior Mascara for streakless waterproof coverage.
Step 9: Dolce & Gabanna solid eyebrow pencil.
Step 10: YSL Lipstick for subtle shine.
Step 11: Finally, my favorite part-the setting spray! Caudalie Beauty Elixir is fantastic. I always choose the Jason Wu bottle because of the fancy packaging. It is made with peppermint, rosemary, and other essential oils. This all natural finishing mist gives my makeup the perfect look for hours. Sometimes I even apply it before my makeup for extra hold. It has no artificial fragrances so it smells and feels so fresh.
(Small tip: spray it on the back of your neck to relieve a headache!!!!!!! )
Hope you guys love these products as much as I do!
