The Importance of Skin Prep in Makeup
When it comes to achieving flawless makeup, skin prep is essential. Starting with a well-prepared canvas can make all the difference in how your makeup looks and lasts throughout the day. One key product that helps create a beautiful base is the glazing milk. Although it may be new to some, it has been a part of my makeup routine for a while now.
Glowing and Juicy Skin with Glazing Milk
The glazing milk is a game-changer when it comes to achieving a super glazed and glowy look. It adds a beautiful sheen to the skin, giving it a juicy appearance. Whenever I use the glazing milk, I can’t help but admire how luminous my skin looks. It’s definitely a must-have for anyone looking to achieve a radiant complexion.
Enhance Makeup with Peptide Glazing Fluids
In addition to the glazing milk, I also love using the peptide glazing fluids for my skin prep. It has become my holy grail product for both makeup prep and mixing with my foundation. The peptide glazing fluids not only provide hydration to the skin but also enhance the overall look of my makeup. This combination has been my go-to, especially during the summer months when the weather is warm and humid.
Keeping the Skin Hydrated
For those looking to achieve a full glam makeup look, it’s important to prioritize hydration. In addition to the glazing milk and peptide glazing fluids, I like to use a richer moisturizer on top to ensure my skin stays super hydrated throughout the day. This step helps create a smoother and more flawless base for makeup application.
A Secret for Sculpted Skin
Lastly, I have been testing out a secret product that gives a snatched and sculpted effect to the face. While I can’t reveal the exact details of this product, I can tell you that it leaves the skin feeling incredibly sculpted and tight. It’s an exciting addition to my makeup routine and adds an extra level of confidence to my overall look.
Skin prep plays a crucial role in achieving a flawless and long-lasting makeup look. Products like the glazing milk, peptide glazing fluids, and a rich moisturizer help hydrate and enhance the skin, creating a beautiful base for makeup application. Additionally, incorporating secret products that provide a sculpted effect can elevate your overall look to new heights. So, the next time you’re getting ready to do your makeup, don’t forget to prioritize skin prep for a stunning end result.
Creating a Flawless Base: The Contour Slash Under Painting
Achieving a flawless base is the key to any makeup look. One technique that has gained popularity in recent years is the contour slash under painting. By effectively using contouring products as an under painting, you can create a beautifully bronzed and seamless canvas for the rest of your makeup. In this article, we will explore the steps and products involved in this technique.
The Perfect Palette for Under Paintings
When it comes to under paintings, the Makeup Forever palette is a go-to for many makeup enthusiasts. Its versatile range of shades allows for easy contouring and shaping of the face. The key is to choose shades that match your skin tone and mimic natural shadows. This palette, coupled with the right tools, can work wonders.
Blending with Precision
One crucial tool for achieving a seamless under painting is a quality brush. The Hourglass brush, personally recommended by many beauty gurus, is perfect for this purpose. Its bristles work effortlessly to push the contour product into the skin, creating an even and flawless finish. This brush ensures every stroke blends seamlessly, enhancing the overall look.
Ensuring a Perfect Match
To maintain a bronzy and glowy appearance, it is essential to ensure that the under painting matches your current skin tone. Paying attention to areas such as the jawline and ears is crucial to avoid any visible lines or mismatched shades. By blending the contour product thoroughly into these areas, a natural, unified look can be achieved.
Enhancing with Concealer
Once the under painting is complete, it’s time to move on to concealer. The Hourglass concealer is a favorite amongst makeup enthusiasts for its creamy texture, coverage, and blendability. While applying the concealer, it is important to focus on the areas requiring additional coverage, such as blemishes or dark spots. However, it is crucial not to go too light with the concealer, especially if you have a tan complexion.
Blending with Finesse
Blending is a crucial step in achieving a flawless finish. Using a brush, blend out the concealer in smaller areas, ensuring a natural and seamless transition. Additionally, using your finger can provide better precision and results in hard-to-reach areas. As you blend, make sure not to disturb the under painting, as it serves as the base for the rest of your makeup.
A Fresh and Natural Summer Look
Finally, if you’re aiming for a light summer makeup look that allows your skin to breathe, using a heavy foundation may not be necessary. Instead, opt for a product with lighter coverage that gives a fresh and natural appearance. By buffing out the under painting slightly, you can create a perfect base that enhances your features while maintaining a light, airy feel.
The contour slash under painting technique provides a flawless canvas for any makeup look. By choosing the right products and blending with precision, you can create a seamless and bronzed appearance. Remember to match the under painting to your current skin tone and blend the concealer with finesse. This technique is perfect for achieving a fresh and natural summer makeup look.
The Hydrating Skin Tint: Hourglass Veil
When it comes to a lightweight and beautifully glowing complexion, the Hourglass Veil is a must-try. This hydrating skin tint provides a good coverage without overwhelming the skin. It is buildable, allowing you to achieve the desired level of coverage. By using the fluffy side of a brush, you can easily buff the product into the skin, creating a seamless and natural finish.
Perfect for the Summer
During the summer season, it is important for your skin to feel light and breathable. The Hourglass Veil is the ideal choice as it allows your skin to breathe while still providing a nice amount of coverage. Its lightweight formula helps to create a radiant complexion without feeling heavy on the skin.
A Touch of Blush
Enhancing your summer look with a touch of blush can make a big difference. Begin with a nudie, beigey pink shade to add warmth and a bronzed effect to your skin. This creates a natural sun-kissed appearance. Then, add a baby ballerina pink shade to achieve a glowing, dewy summer skin vibe.
Setting the Makeup
Before moving on to the next step, it is important to set the makeup. Apply a small amount of powder under the eyes and allow it to sit for a moment. The Hourglass Veil doesn’t require a heavy application of powder, as it is designed to maintain a glowy finish. However, using a light dusting of powder to set your makeup will ensure it stays in place throughout the day.
The Hourglass Veil provides the perfect balance between coverage and an effortless, natural look. If you want to achieve a radiant and glowing complexion this summer, give it a try.
Enhancing the Brows
When it comes to brows, I must confess that I am not a major devotee. However, there are times when I do like to give them a little brush-up. I have a specific technique that I follow, where I brush them up in the reverse direction before brushing them into place. It’s a quick and easy way to add some definition to my brows without going all-out on filling them in. Maybe one day I’ll become a brow-filling aficionado, but for now, I’ll stick to this simple method.
The Simi Haze Palette
As I delve into my makeup routine, I reach for the Simi Haze palette and decide to use a beautiful dusty rose shade. This color is one that I find myself reaching for often, as it complements my features in a subtle and flattering way. It’s always nice to have a go-to shade that you can rely on to enhance your overall look.
The Hourglass Mascara
Mascara is a staple in any makeup routine, and for me, it’s no different. The Hourglass mascara has become a firm favorite of mine. I have noticed that some people comment on my pronunciation of “mascara,” as it has a distinct New York twang to it. Growing up in New York, I suppose it’s only natural for certain words to have a touch of the local accent. Nonetheless, this mascara does wonders for my lashes and really opens up my eyes.
Enhancing the Lips
Moving on to the lips, I decide to do a little bit of liner and apply a lip color. Since I’m not yet ready to reveal this lip situation, I opt to do it off camera. The shade I choose is a beautiful nude color that adds definition to my lips while still looking natural and beautiful. It’s always a win when a lip color can enhance your features without overpowering them.
A Touch of Highlight
For the final step in my makeup routine, I add a touch of highlight to my face. Highlighter is a great way to accentuate the high points of your face, giving you a healthy and radiant glow. It adds a subtle shimmer and creates dimension, making your skin look more youthful and luminous. It’s a simple yet impactful step that I never skip.
Peptide Lip Treatment and Vanilla Cake
Last but not least, I reach for my peptide lip treatment. This product not only nourishes my lips but also enhances their natural plumpness. It’s the perfect finishing touch to my makeup routine, leaving my lips soft and supple. And to my delight, I discover that my favorite shade, vanilla cake, is back on the market. It has become a permanent fixture in my makeup collection, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
My makeup routine may be simple, but it’s effective in enhancing my natural features. From brushing up my brows to adding a touch of highlight, each step contributes to creating a polished and effortless look. With the right products and techniques, you can achieve a natural and beautiful makeup look that enhances your unique beauty.
