Hi girls, welcome to makeup Monday!
Today is all about makeup. As my first post I am going to show you the makeup that I buy and a little bit about applying it.
Alright here we go. What’s the first thing you put on your face when your are applying makeup? Well you start with foundation. I use Mary Kay’s tinted moisturizer.
This stuff is the bomb girls. It gives me great coverage, covers little dark spots very well, it’s so easy to apply, and you don’t need a lot. This foundation is great because it does not make you look like you are wearing a ton of makeup. It’s so great!
I put the foundation on in little dots on my face, putting three dots on both cheeks, one on my nose, one on my forehead, and some times one my chin. Most of the time I use excess that’s on my sponge.
Next I use e.l.f. concealer.
I apply this under my eyes in a triangle with the top point facing down. I also apply this to any unwanted spots that I want to hide.
Now on to the eyeshadow. This is the part a lot of people struggle with because it’s hard to get right. I had to practice a lot to get it right.
My eyeshadow palette is one I got from TJ Max. As you can see, most of it has fallen out because it’s old, but I love the orange and red fall colors.
I also have these Mary Kay eyeshadows.
I promise I will get a DIY eyeshadow video up soon!
Next comes mascara. I have two kinds and I like them both because they have different brushes
Next I have another Mary Kay sample that my aunt gave me. This sample is highlighter
I use eyeliner pencils. I have black that I use the most, but I also have purple, green, blue, gold and I think gray…..anyways eyeliner is a whole ‘nother world. It’s hard and takes practice, but I will do my best to show you how to start!
Well girls that is it for today. I promise I will get better at this and soon I’ll get some DIY stuff out. Hope you have a great week and I’ll see you back here for “Words Wednesday”!
Also I hope y’all noticed that my nails looked awful and messy, proving that I am not always put together. This is something to remember, that we are not perfect, only our Maker is. We were not made to be perfect, and we never can be!
And now some Winnie the Pooh.
