Happy Friday! Today I thought it would be fun to share with you the makeup look I did for the 4th of July and how I did it. I had quite a few ideas leading up to the 4th about what I wanted to do and ultimately I’m really happy with the one I chose.
So the first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm. I’ve been liking this a lot. It’s really moisturizing, gives a nice glow under foundation, smells super good and gives you a great base to work with. Next I went in with my foundation, Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory. I have to say, now that I’ve switched to the liquid version I like it a lot more and I feel like I’m getting much better coverage. I then applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory, under my eyes and a few other places. And I set it all with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper.
For the rest of my face I started with bronzer and used Benefit Hoola. Then I went to what is becoming a go to of mine, the Alamar Cosmetics Colorete Blush Trio in Medium/Tan and used the shade Isla. And I highlighted using the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.
When it came to my eyes the first thing I did was prime them using the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer. For this look I wanted to use a palette I hadn’t fully explored, so I went with the Too Faced Pretty Rich Diamond Light Palette. The first shadow I used, as a base, was It’s Designer, a matte nude shadow. Then I went in with Coal Under Pressure, this is somewhere between a medium and deep black and it has flecks of silver glitter in it. I put this in the crease, on the outer corner of the eye and brought it in about halfway on the eye. For the rest of the lid I applied Set The Jewel Tone, which is a really pretty shimmery sapphire blue. Then, for a little extra fun and sparkle, I dabbed Diamond Life on my entire lid. When I originally saw this glitter I thought it would be a great topper and it is. It has a mix of white, blue, black and a darker silver glitter in it. And for a little brightness I put Clutch Your Pearls in the inner corner of my eye and under my brows. To line my eyes I applied the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooperand I topped off the eyes with the Too Faced Damn Girl mascara, it really does give you lashes for days. I knew I wanted to do a red lip so I looked through all of mine and decided on the Beauty Vaulte liner in Natty Nat and on top of that, the Sephora Collection LipStories Matte Lipstick in 23, After Hours. This is a great deep red that I wear a lot during the holidays and college football season. And to set the look I used the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
That about wraps it up for this post, I always like doing posts like this, so look out for more in the future.
Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many makeup products :).
