As you read from the title, this is a beauty post. Jep, my first beauty post. In this post I am going to talk through all the make up that I use on a daily basis. So let’s get started!
I want my make up to be fresh, to look natural. But I still want every thing needed covered. Also, the ‘masterpiece’ needs to stay put all day. So to start of I use the Nivea Men Aftershave balsem sensitive. Thank you nikkietutourials for giving me this tip.
The first thing I do after priming is covering the worst bits on my face. This means my dark circles and the worst spots. For this I use the Kiko full coverage concealer. Now for foundation I use one that is actually not available worldwide but only in Holland. We have a store called Douglas where I buy the ultralight foundation. This foundation is just really a lightweight foundation with not so much coverage but enough to hide. I first used the foundation from Yves Saint Laurent the Encre De Peau. But this was a bit expensive for me. I apply my foundation with the Yves Saint Laurent Perfecting polisher brush. After foundation I conceal AGAIN, yeah I need it alright. I use the Smashbox camera ready bb cream eyes. I put this on my under eye area and any other blemishes/spots.
Now to not make you look greasy all day, I apply the Clinique superpowder double face makeup. After that, contour. I use the Benefit Hoola bronzing & countouring brush to apply the bronzing shade from the Rimmel Londen sculpting palette from Kate Moss. I’m not an expert in countour so I can’t help you there. I use the same brush and the blush shade from the same palette for blush. If any of this is too harsh I take a big brush with some face powder and go over it.
The thing I am most confident about definitely are my eyes. First I use the Collistar eyebrow pencil on my waterline to open up my eyes. The next thing depends on my mood. If I want more of a soft look I use the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eye Shadow Palette in the shade 202 Tissé Camélia and then the pink shade from the palette. OR I use the Catrice cosmetics Chocolate Nudes Eyeshadow Palette to create a more bronzed look. From this palette I use the glitter shade in the inner corner of my eyes.
Now I always get really nice compliments about my eyebrows. But all I do is plug them the right way and in the morning all I do is brush them into place with either an old mascara of an eyebrow brush. I curl the lashes after that and apply the mascara They’re real from Benefit. I have a certain way to apply my mascara which is that I always use more on the outside of my eyes to make them more ‘flirty’. I don’t really put lots of lip product on, usually just a lip balm because I think that without lipstick or so it really makes it seem natural. But every once in a while a lipsticks completes the look.
The very last thing is totally optional, but if I want it to feel more fresh I spray the Avène Thermal Spring Water. And that’s it! Those are the things that I do most of the days. This sure was a lot to write so if you made it this far, good job!
I hope seeing you on the next one, please let me know what you want to see.
With much love,
