Half & Half!

A little makeup can make your eyes brighter and and give your face more definition! The right side of my face I put on foundation, bronzer, and a little bit of blush. My right eye has a nude eyeshadow and a light line of eyeliner on my top lid and on my waterline, topped off with some mascara! And lastly, I have lip liner and lipstick on the right side of my mouth.

How Much is too Much?

Sometimes people wonder how much concealer they should be using, or how much foundation is too much foundation. Well, this all varies person to person depending on skin type. But regardless, you never want to use too much concealer because it can crease throughout the day, and you don’t want to pack on the foundation and have it look like you have no pores.

Below is a snapshot of how much face product I typically use. My moisturizer is Belif Aqua Bomb and requires a very little amount to hydrate. My face primer is Smashbox’s Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer which also requires a very small amount – you don’t want your face too feel wet! For my Foundation and Concealer I use Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation and the HD Concealer by Make Up Forever.

Primer and Foundation usually require the most product because they cover the entire face with equal coverage everywhere. Unlike concealer which is only for small areas and primer which does not require full coverage!

Ready For A Night Out!

You don’t always need a special occasion to get your makeup done and strut your stuff! Sometimes a night out with the girls is exactly what you need, and having your makeup done is the icing on the cake. The beautiful Shannon was pampered and polished before heading into the city – doesn’t she look amazing?!

IMG_0379I used Urban Decay’s Naked Palette 2 on her eyes:

  • Whole lid: half baked
  • Crease: snakebite
  • Outer corners: blackout
  • Inner corners: chopper
  • Brow bone: bootycall
  • Stila Smudge Pot Liner (top lid)
  • Smashbox Always Sharp Eyeliner (water line)
  • Ardell eyelashes – 111 Black
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel

For her beautiful skin I used Debra Macki Sunlit Beige Concealer, Debra Macki Foundation, Too Faced Translucent Powder, & Palladio Baked Blush-Atlantic.

And to top it off, for a subtle lip I used:

  • Debra Macki Lipstick Wink
  • Debra Macki Lip Pencil Le Rose
