{ PRODUCTS }

{ BASE FOUNDATION }

{ one } 
I use the darker shade of concealer first to cover up any blemishes I have on my face. I use the darker shade because it doesn't highlight the spots as much. 

{ two }
Once I've applied the concealer with the concealer brush, I blend with a cosmetic sponge.

{ three } 
I squeeze about a pump and a half worth of the foundation onto my hand. 

{ four }
I blend the foundation outwards from my nose.

{ five } 
I brush a little bit of powder onto my brush.

{ six }
I blend this powder over my entire face, covering up the liquid foundation.

{ CONTOUR }

{ one and two }
I use the lighter shade of concealer underneath my eye, above my brow line, and under my cheek bone. 

{ three }
I then blend this concealer with the kabuki brush and the 2nd light contour palette.

{ four }
I use the bottom right bronzer to sculpt underneath my cheek bone. I use the bottom left bronzer to sculpt underneath my chin.

{ five }
Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit // Eye Shadow Brush (Used for Contour Around Eyes)
I use the middle bronzer to line my nose.

{ six }
I use a blush on my cheek bone itself, above where I have applied the bronzer. 

{ seven }
Now that I have bronzed and blushed everything I want, I go back in underneath my eyes, above the brow, and under the bronzer to highlight everything once more. 

{ eight }
To blend, I use the top right to highlight everything but under my eye. 

{ nine }
I use the top left to highlight underneath my eye. (It has a little bit of a shimmer to it! ;)

{ CONTOUR PRODUCT }

Eye Shadow Brush (Used for Contour Around Eyes)

{ five }

{ six }

Once I have applied everything, I blend everything once more with my clean Ultimate Kabuki Brush. To finish it off, I apply a bareMinerals Mineral Veil with my Finish Brush to help keep the shine away.

{ EYESHADOW }


{ one }
I apply the first part of the eyeshadow to the crease in my eye.

{ two }
I apply the second eyeshadow over top that to add a little bit of a shimmer

{ three }
On my eyelid and right under my brow, I use the third selected eyeshadow.

{ four }
Under my brow and right along the line of my eyelid, I use the fourth selected eyeshadow.

{ five }

I blend all of that with my Deluxe Fan Brush.

{ BROWS }

{ one }
I first brush out my brows to make sure that everything is smooth 
{ two }
I grab this product and the brush. 

{ three }
I apply my brow underneath first.

{ four }
Then I apply above the brow, and blend. 

{ five }
Once all of that is set, I smooth it out with this brush.

{ six }
I clean underneath my brow with one of these swabs.

{ seven }
I clean above my brow with one of these swabs. 

{ eight }
I grab my brow gel. 

{ nine }
In order to make sure that my brows stay in place all day, I apply the brow gel. 

{ LASHES AND LINER }

{ one }
I apply this liquid liner across my top eye lid, leaving a bit of a cat eye corner on the sides.

{ two }
I apply this mascara on the top lashes (more volume)

{ three }
Benefit Roller Lash Super Curling & Lifting Mascara
I apply this mascara on the bottom lashes (simple mascara).

Phew! Did you catch all that?! Haha! 

I've never really thought about all of the individual little steps to my routine until… Now! There are lots of steps to the process but now that I have it down pat, this takes me no time at all to complete. Doing my makeup in the morning is somewhat of my "me time". I'll turn on a show to watch in the background and go to town! (Sipping coffee all the way, mind you.) 

If you all have any follow up questions to any of this, feel free to shoot me an email! I'd be happy to help :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
