Apply your primer. Yes, I use monistat on my face. I know, I know - why would I do that... Well it's the freakin same at the Smashbox Photo Finish and for a fraction of the cost, that's why. It's literally the majority of the same ingredients and it blurs your pores and lines to perfection.
Wet your sponge and squeeze it into a towel to get the excess water out.
Apply your foundation. I use the sponge to blend all over and down neck. I love the CT because it gives me a full coverage flawless look that actually lasts all day! Even through sweating and performing. It's my favorite.
Apply concealer with tip end of sponge. You're painting on tribal makeup at this time. Down the bridge of your nose, and don't forget the tip. Place a small triangle right between your eyebrows. Draw triangles under your eyes. Dot your chin, cupid's bow, and bottom corners of lips. The extra around the lips isn't needed unless you're going for that extra plump look in the end.
Set the concealer with powder! You don't need a lot - too much will make you look dry and cakey. Pat & press the powder on to the places you just put your concealer. Sweeping will cause streaks... no thank you!
Highlight! Make small circular motions around the outer corner of your eyes by your temples. Kind of like a "C" shape. Carry it to the tops of the apples of your cheeks. Dust the tip of your nose, the bridge of your nose, slight between your brows, the cupid's bow, and dab your chin. Basically almost everywhere the concealer went ; )
Time to shape your brows. The biggest tip I can share with you is go light and add a little at a time. I gotta fill my brows in so much and to make them seem as natural as possible you need to take your time, gently add shape with a pencil and brush the color upwards to blend. My holy grail brow product is the Shape + Shade from MAC, omg it makes my brows look sculpted and like I had them micro bladed! Like 100% I'm not shitting you, get this product! With the pencil you'll shape, then brush to blend. Next you create the hairlike little flecks and brush to smooth out - Brows on Fleek!
Let's get your shadow on. Start with "Girly" that's the pink tone. Lightly pat and press onto the crease. Then you can gently sweep to blend out. Focus on the crease, but blend upwards and slightly down onto lid. Next use "Soft Brown" on the outer corner of your eye. I use the same small tampered brush for both of these colors. Last shade is the lightest to clean up and brighten. Use "Orb" under your brows, carry around and down the inner corner of your eye, and also pack in on top of the center of your lid.
Line your eyes. I've been loving a darker brown shade as of late. It gives you a softer look. Use on outer corner of eye, carry only to the middle on lower lash line. Make it faint on the bottom line. On the top you can go more intense. Start on outer corner and I got bigger narrowing the line as I near the inner corner of my eye. Then take a firm pointed brush to smudge both the top and bottom out. Again, this will help keep your eyes by giving off a softer touch.
Bat dem Lashes and coat them with mascara!
Get your cheekies nice and rosie. Apply right on top of your sheet bones. Find the mid point and start there. Press it into your skin and carry it out towards your hairline. Once you get that use a little over the apples of your cheeks. You want this part to be fainter on the application.
Finishing off with the lips. I love a good plump pout and I've been obsessed with over drawing my lips to make them look bigger. To do this, you're going to over draw the cupid's bow on top, and the center of your bottom lip. Then liner the corners and have them meet into one. Shade in the corner. Use a lighter lipstick in the centers and smack together to blend.
Finish it off with your setting spray!
I hope the detailed written tutorial has helped and maybe you'll try giving this Girly Natural look a try soon. You can always reach out to me with questions.
