Well, it looks like the weather is finally cooperating, so let us welcome Spring with open arms and this bright makeup look you can wear day and night!
I started with my Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance, followed by one foundation you’ve seen me used a lot in tutorials, but haven’t reached for in a while: the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in the shade Punjab. Both products I applied with my fingers.
In honor of finding my Anastasia Beverly Hills #12 Duo Brush (it went missing for a while and my sister found it in a random drawer in the house – she the true hero of the story), I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in shade Medium Brown. First I brushed my lashes up, then I traced and filled in the brows with this product.
I’m pretty certain that with my selection of shadows I would not need primer, but I went ahead and used NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, just in case.
For eyeshadows, I used all the shades in the ColourPop “Where The Light Is” set, starting with the shade Cornelius, applied all over the crease using a Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush.
Next, using my fingers, I applied the shade Blaze all over the eyelid. Then, using a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush, I applied the same shade on the lower lash line.
Using my fingers, I applied shade Kathleenlights in the middle of the eyelid, subtly blending together with the Blaze shade.
Finally, with a smaller Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush, I applied a very small amount of shade Glow on the brow bone (seriously, a very thin line). Then, using the shame shade and brush I applied on the inner corners of the eyes, near the tearducts.
I did not apply liner in my top lash line (now, that is a real surprise!) because I wanted to showcase the pretty shadows as much as I could and God knows my slightly hooded eyes can only handle so much product at at time! I did line my top waterline and the lower lash line using a ColourPop Crème Gel Liner in shade Brew-Haha.
I finished the eyes with a few coats of my Benefit’s Roller Lash Mascara on my top lashes.
To clean up a little bit of the glitter fallout from the Blaze eyeshadow and just for overall concealing I used Smashbox High Definition Concealer applied with my fingers.
I set the concealer using my Benefit’s Hello Flawless Powder Foundation in shade Honey. I used the brush that comes with the product.
For some light contouring, I used an EcoTools Bamboo Tampered Blush Brush and applied NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna on the hollows of my cheeks.
To double as highlighter and blush, I used this NARS The Multiple in shade Orgasm. I applied the product on my cheeks directly from the stick and then blended with my fingers.
With the same Ecotools brush I used earlier, I set the cream blush with a powder version of it, the NARS Blush in the same shade, Orgasm.
For the lips I used a MAC Lip Liner in Half-Red to line them, then filled them in with this gorgeous ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in the shade Bumble.
And there you have it! The final look:
