I love makeup because it enhances beauty. This isn’t to say that I never leave the house without makeup, because I do. All the time. I have a bunch of issues that I prefer to cover up with makeup, including uneven skin tone, broken capillaries, scars, age spots, and zits. Here are some photos of my naked face:
And here is my face with my basic makeup, not including eyeshadow or eyeliner:
So what products do I use?
I always start with an eye primer, because it helps eyeshadow adhere, and usually intensifies the color. I would normally finish my eyeshadow application, so that I could cleanup any fallout. Today, I just continued on with the rest of my face.
I use color correction to help coverup broken capillaries on my nose and cheeks, scars and age spots on my cheek, and undereye bags. I don’t always color correct, but I have some little zits right now and felt like covering them up today.
I then apply BB Cream all over my face. I appreciate the ease of use of this product, the amount of coverage, and the way it wears. I have been using this BB Cream for a couple years, and it is definitely my favorite type of foundation.
I then use bronzer to do a little contouring because my face is so round. I don’t use any blush because my skin is pink enough. I do use a powder with just a touch of shimmer on the tops of my cheeks for a highlight, and then follow that with an all over mattifying powder.
I finish my makeup by using brow powder and wax, eyeliner and mascara. I curl my lashes before I apply mascara because I prefer the way it comes out. I also used a nude lip liner when I was done with everything else.
I will link back to this post when I add new FOTDs, because I usually just list eyeshadows and lip products used.
