Let me be honest, I don’t have the extra time to spend putting on makeup. And for the longest time I didn’t even know HOW to put on my makeup!
I can now do my makeup in 10 minutes or less. I don’t believe that you have to dish out big bucks for expensive makeup just to feel good about your appearance. At least half of my products come from a local drug store like CVS or Walgreens! I even pick up my brushes from Target. There are a few higher-end products that I love and usually for a reason. I’m not the best at doing my makeup I have a process that works for me and I feel comfortable & confident in it for everyday wear.
I have to give credit to the makeup artists that I’ve had the privilege to work with. They are the best in its industry and these girls have really helped me learn what I know today. The best advise I can give you is to practice practice practice! You’ll get better, I promise. My home video is a little silly, I didn’t know it was going to be so hard looking into a small camera screen to do my makeup.
Below you will find the name and color of each product I use.
Light Foundation stick: FITME by Maybelline : 355 Ivory
Dark Foundation stick: FITME by Maybelline : 340 Cappuccino
Eyeliner: Maybelline -Eyestudio : Blackest Black
Eyebrow pencil: Dark Brown Anastasia Brow Wiz
Brushes: Sonia Kashuk (I purchased these at Target stores)
Mascara: I don’t have a preference, but I don’t like clumpy. I even find the mascara from your local drug store to be great.
Other things to consider, I have a primer that I love when I shot this video I was out of the primer but its by bareMinerals BB PRIMER-CREAM and I love it because its slightly tented. Just makes your overall complexion appear more smooth, it has a spf of 30 and when you start applying your stick foundation for contouring it makes is go on smooth and blends effortlessly. The color I have is Medium. I also use a good night cream and for my eyes and a daytime cream. My mom had always taught me young to take care of your skin. I keep makeup wipes with me all the time, when I’m traveling and when I go to the gym.
Another product that I want to share with you thats not mentioned in the video is a finishing spray. This really sets your makeup and you’ll be surprised to see how long and fresh your face looks all day long without a touchup. Its called FIX+ by MAC you just spray it on your face after you’ve applied your makeup and you’re all set.
