LA doesn’t seem to be wanting to participate with the blog posts I have planned.
I HAD planned to share my rainy day makeup with y’all seeing as how the torrential downpour that had plagued LA didn’t seem to be letting up any time soon, but here we are a week later, no rain & summer-like weather.
Well-played LA… well played.
Anyway, I still want to share with you guys my go to rainy-day makeup look (which can obviously be worn in any weather).
So I like to start out with Smashbox Under- Eye Correcting Penicl. Dark spots and under eye- bags are no joke. I use this product on any areas that need lightening or highlighting.
After blending with my real techniques expert face brush, I’ll go in with my Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in Warm Beige.
Next, I reach for my Nars Creamy Concealer in the same spots as before, to add a little bit more coverage & highlight.
For all of my oily girls out there, this next step is super important— I like to take my beauty blender and my Laura Mercier Brightening Powder and set all the areas I highlighted– just to ensure everything stays where it’s meant to.
Whilst my powder is setting, I like to get my shadow done. My go to palette as of late is the Becca Cosmetics Ombre Rouge Palette.
I like to use #5 in the crease and corners. Then, l’ll go in with #4 on the whole lid. Then, #3 to help blend out the crease a bit and then finishing off with #1 to highlight the brow bone.
Now, do you see all that white powder laying on your face? Yeah, you’re gonna want to get rid of that. So, I just grab my kabuki brush and dust it all off.
Some days— like today when I’m feeling extra boss— I like to add a small wing to my eyes with the Too Faced Sketch Marker in black and then finish off my eyes with Diorshow Extase Mascara.
I like to add some color & dimension back into my face, so I’m gonna grab my Too Faced Cocoa Contour and use Medium Cocoa to contour my cheekbones and nose. And then I like to go with Dark Cocoa to add some warmth.
Last, I’m going to finish up with my Nars blush in Dolce Vita on my cheekbones, Hourglass Radiant light on the tops of my cheekbones & Smith’s Rosebud Salve on my lips.
Setting all of this with my Urban Decay De-Slick Setting spray in the hopes of all my hard work not going to waste.
This look is super casual, while also bringing some attention to the eyes & highlighting a more natural beauty.
