Step 1. Face Prep

Start with a clean washed face and use a good moisturizer right before application. I also always brush my teeth first and put a very basic chapstick on my lips so they don’t get dry and cracked.

Step 2. Foundation and Contouring

Quickly apply concealer and bronzer highlighter in a similar way I have done here. Let it set up for about 2 minutes. You also cannot see in this photo but I have bronzer along the jaw line as well.

Step 3. Blend

Using a beauty blender or blending brush, use round circular motions until all of the makeup in evenly blended in. Don’t forget to blend you lips- This makes the perfect base for your nude lipstick and also helps it last all day.

4. Add eyes and lips

Now you should already have a really nice base on your eyelids and it is really easy to apply eye shadow. Start with a really light nude over the entire eyelid. Add browns or darker colors to the corners. Use a little white in the corners of your eyes to make them appear brighter. 

I always use black eyeliner on the bottom and top of the eye and go over the top with black liquid eye liner. Finishing my eyes with Mascara. 

Lips- I like to line my lips with a liquid nude lipstick that stays 24 hours. Then I fill in the center with a soft pink lip gloss!

Extra Details:

You can throw on some blush and highlighter to your high cheek bones and highlight the upper lip to make them appear more full. 

For brows, I don’t do anything because I had them micro bladed by Brandi with OCBEAUTYCO who is linked here with her contact info!
