HELLO party person! I hope you had a fantastic summer and enjoyed most of your relaxation. I personally did it, and my poor makeup collection sat beautifully and glistening in the sunlight … gathering dust. After a whole season of working with what I got (aka minimal effort), I really miss the polished, cut myself and I want to get her back as soon as possible.
The best way to swing across a few lanes to Glamville is to go big or go home – no time to test or relieve it. Fall is the official season to get your shit together, and if you look good, you feel good, right? Windex your bathroom mirror, dust off your best products, and get ready to mess. Nothing below is revolutionary – all the cute, cute, young YouTubers do it. I'm just here to be your cheerleader so you can get back to it.
OK, hear me out. Recently, I started a full coverage journey – not to cover or hide, but because my skin rinse was channeling the 60's, perfectly powdery, doll-like appearance.
Ironically, it starts with a plump and well-moisturized cloth that you can get with an A + face oil. Then follow up with your favorite moisturizer – the goal is to touch the skin of the trampoline. Right now, the lord ruler of my life is a magical pot of Laura Mercier Secret Concealer. It's very good, in the best way. I tap, tap under my eyes and tap, tap over everything I want to get stuck under the mat (this is my kind of way of saying pimples). If I want to achieve this (and of course), the Tom Ford Illuminating Highlight Pen is the best product to inject energy and enthusiasm into your lower eyelid / cheekbone area – use it! It does not disappoint.
Next, use the best powder foundation to create the most human-looking, spotless skin. The one of Bare Minerals is still the highest, and it's that & # 39; I don't have the skincare effort you put in & # 39; but I will cherish it since the age of 17.
To get started, you need to grab two types of brushes: a soft, so-like – & # 39; n-bunny fluffy brush and & # 39; teens perfection. Begin by pouring the large boi brush into the powder, and then wrap the powder by turning the brush into the cap of the compact, tapping off excess powder from the sides. I always make sure I plant myself in front of a window so I can see what's in daylight (including how everyone will see this art). I always start painting from the cheeks – my most untrustworthy territory – and in circular movements turn to the tunes of Frank Sinatra (& # 39; a wonderful pace for & # 39; facial strokes) and make sure I don't stay in one place for too long do not stay, so that everything comes out nice and even.
Now that we literally look like a ghost without lips, the baby brush will help us identify any inequalities that are still fighting to be seen. Load the brush the same way and find the spots that need more love with the same circle-centric groove.
Then you can enter with the Bare Minerals Well Rested Under Eye Brightener. It is a holy grail if you have daily death circles like me and want to be slapped in the face with the most magical night's rest and wellness. Tap it over your concealer and then wipe away the enduring powder.
And now for a bit of chisel
To inject a joyful disposition back into my face, I lean into sparkling, rich, buttery bronzers. Tom Ford Soleil Glow is the closest I ever had to having anything in common with January Jones (she once posted it on Insta), and honestly it makes me feel like I'm ten percent more expensive few seconds. To close and load my cherub portrait, I use the hot tip to match my blush screen to the color of my palm as I pinch a fist. For me, Dior's Rosy Glow comes in petal.
The Eye Candy
My favorite (and most frightening) decision of the day is to find out what to do with my eyes. I would like mine Saved photos on Instagram for inspo. I'm really excited for feline eyes again, and wake up the person I once was when I spent an extra five minutes each morning (and use one to seven Q-hints for support).
The supporting actress for each cat eye is a reliable foundation in shade and texture. I live for a dark brown or tinted sooty powder eyeshadow that looks behind a cat's eye, and right now I love the Dior Backstage Eyeshadow Palette Cool neutral). I will fold her from the lid to fold, and I will probably hit the edges a little extra.
OK whew, now … carefully plant your feet apart, take a deep breath, lean into the mirror, lightly and slightly light (I didn't say) draws the corner of your eye to your temple and sweeps on your cat's eye. Stila is of course the best for classic black mod vibes, but if I'm feeling spicy, Dior wowie's colorful options, chef's kiss.
And The Lip Smackers
Lastly, you will literally never say the least, because your lips MUST NOT BE SEEN FIRST. If I've learned anything from my time working with Kim Johnson for more than two years (apart from literally everything I know), it's that the feet of your lips are king. My previous opinion was that lip liner was exclusively for a red lip or old ladies, but as usual, Kim knows best. If you do it right, it & # 39; s a moment, & # 39; wow she looks incredible, what else is? & # 39; I like Tom Ford Lip Sculptor it up (my shade is depart) around the edges. Then I take my ring finger and blur it with small quick pats.
Finish it off with a lip liner option that is your natural lip color but slightly more saturated in color. Tom Ford Indian Rose is, not to be dramatic, BEYOND. You can trust me, because I am never really impressed with lip products, but here I DECIDE the perfect lip alarm! Wipe or stain on a layer and sprinkle throughout the day.
