Get Ready With Me!

  1. Starting with a clean, fresh face, I first apply the Tinted Moisturizer. Not only does this give your face a little hint of color, it also helps prevent sunburn with a SPF 20 Sunscreen! 
  2. Since I tend to go for a more natural look, I use the concealer next under my eyes, dotting the sides of my nose and a touch on the chin. 
  3. I’m very new to highlighting, but I love how it can brighten up my face just enough to notice. I apply it lightly to my cheek bones, down my nose, fanning my forehead and dotting both above and below the middle of my lips. 
  4. Next, I apply blush to my cheeks just to add a little color. For my eyelids I usually just use a touch of concealer, but if you’re looking for a little pop, adding blush to your eyes will do the trick without splurging on a whole eye shadow palette!
  5. Now, I will be the first to admit, I am no eyebrow expert! After many many Jaclyn Hill YouTube videos, I at least have an idea of what I’m (attempting) to do. Ha! So with that being said, I really just aim to shape them, no dramatization needed… Then I finish it off with mascara. I LOVE this mineral infused mascara so much! 
  6. Lastly, are those lips. I used to NEVER wear lipstick, like ever!! After my cake face days (yep, I used to be “that girl” winged eyeliner and all) I totally stopped wearing makeup completely. This is when I found my new love for lipsticks. I really wanted something that made me feel more confident — and that was as simple as throwing on a bright or bold lipstick! My favorite are matte lip colors, so this is what I’m using here.

What are your makeup must-haves that I didn’t list? What are your go-to brands? Stay tuned… I’ll be sharing my favorite makeup must-have splurge products soon!
