Bare Face

Start out with your bare face! I exfoliated my face and lips and then I put on moisturizer and lip balm.

Foundation

This is using L'Oréal Magic Lumi primer before I applied NYX [5] Jumbo Pencil in Milk, Maybelline [6] Fit Me concealer, foundation, and powder.

Brows

I was asked for my brow upkeep routine, so I have tried to show the best I can. If I had thicker, faster growing brows, I think I'd have a lot more insight. But it has taken me a LONG time to grow them out to how they are now. But it has been a lot of precise plucking and trimming in the right areas, as shown.

Brows

The finished brow. I actually went in and softened the front of my brow a bit after this, but overall, this is my usual brow. I use a pencil with a hard hand and a soft hand, therefore I'm able to get a more gradient build up throughout my brow.

Eye Primer

I then applied an eyeshadow primer (I used ELF) and a base shadow that is similar to my skin tone (I didn't add it, as you can use any shade. I used an ELF one from a super old palette because it works for me for the time being).
I applied the base shadow almost to my brow and all over my lid. It'll totally help with blending the matte shades especially. Those can be such a b*tch.

Eye Shadow

Apply "Caramel" from the Amrezy Palette on the brow bone and blend, blend, BLEND!

Eye Shadow

In the center of my blended area, directly on the brow bone, I appled "M6" from the Smashbox [12] Full Exposure Palette. I blended almost as much as I blended "Caramel," but not enough to completely mix the colours together. You still want to be able to see "Caramel."

Eye Shadow

I made a V shape with "LBD."

Eye Shadow

Blend "LBD" upwards and outwards, not too much on the lid. We want to keep that bare until the next step. If you can't see too much of "Caramel," you can add more above "LBD."

Eye Shadow

Here I added "M5" from Full Exposure to the lid and very slightly blended into "LBD." This will act as a darker base.

Eye Shadow

Now, I applied "Topaz" from the Amrezy palette on top of "M5." I patted it onto the lid instead of blending it too much, but I did blend it more up in the inner corner of my eye so it blends well into "Caramel" and "LBD." It creates a very soft transition.

I used "Vanilla" for a brow bone highlight right above "Caramel."

I missed a picture, but I then applied NYX [17] "Milk" into the corner of my eye, halfway across the bottom of my eye, and on my bottom waterline. I softened that with my finger. I then added "Legend" into the corner of my eye and a little bit onto my lid, and then all over "Milk."

On the outer bottom of my eye, I blended "Caramel" a bit into "Legend" and brought down "LBD" a bit too. You want it to be as soft as possible in the transitions, but not overblending any of the colors.

Finished Eye

I applied a thicker winged liner. I don't wear fake lashes, but I feel like this look would look bomb as hell with them.

Finished Eye With Flash

I applied some mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

Contour

I used "M6" from Full Exposure for a cool toned brown shade for my contour. I blended it with NYC "Sunny" bronzer all where is shown on both sides of my face.

Highlight

I used "S4" as a highlight from Full Exposure. I love it as a highlight. Seriously. It's fabulous.

Overall Finished Look

I used Revlon [23] "Sultry" for my lipstick and put "Rosebud" by Wet n' Wild (a lighter rose color) on the center of my lips to add some depth. I lined around my lips with concealer to have a sharper lip.

Overall Finished Look

You can obviously make your contour a bit more subtle, but I love having defined cheekbones, so do your own thing.
