Step by Step Makeup

Actually I wanted to create a Christmas Makeup until I noticed that I wear the same one that I do the whole year.

So I decided to capture all the steps of the makeup I did for a birthday party with dinner and movie night afterwards.

Normally I am more the BB-Cream type of girl but when I want to make sure that everything stays in place the whole day, I go for foundation.

Please be nice with me- I did all the pictures by myself. And YES I look different without Makeup!

See all the products at the end.

1. Foundation

First step should always be moisturizer.

For applying foundation I like to use the RealTechniques brush. I always use a small amount of foundation, because I don’t like the feeling of a thick mask on my face. If I need more coverage on some blemishes or acne scars, I either use another thin layer of foundation or concealer.

For my dark under eye circles I apply concealer with my fingers and blend it with the foundation brush.

I set everything with powder- transparent on the eye area.

2. Contouring

When I don’t have a lot of time I just rush with a big brush over my face.

When I do have some time I apply some bronzer on my cheeks and forehead. As a trick you can draw a “3” on your face. Starting on the forehead to the cheeks and finally to the chin.

With a smaller brush I contour my lips and nose.

I put the highlighter on the highest point of my cheeks, my nose and above my lips. It’s a very quiet and natural highlighter. I think you even don’t really see it on the pictures.

3. Eyebrows

As you can see in the pictures above, I don’t have super thick and nicely shaped eyebrows. Poor me they are super light as well.

That’s why I use a brown eyebrow powder to fill them in and give them a nice shape.

Because I am a bit too lazy to dye my eyebrows all the time, I use a brown eyebrow gel.

I put a light eyeshadow under my eyebrows. The rest that is on the brush goes on to the eyelids.

4. Eyes

To create a bit more depth, I put a darker eyeshadow in my crease and blend it out.

What works best for me to create a nice eyeliner is a small brush and a gel eyeliner.

I apply the same brown eyeshadow on the lower lashline.

Last step would be mascara. I am not a fan of super expensive mascaras, because I think they all do the same job. At least for me as I have long and curled lashes.

5. Lips

To make the lipstick last longer I always fill out my lips with a lipliner and put the lipstick on top.

I really like nude/ brown matte lips. This lipstick is very very close to the “Velvet Teddy” from Mac and lasts super long.
