As of late, I've really not wanted to go through the whole makeup routine. Shocker. However, I feel like myself in makeup and when I run errands I like to look like the same person that's on this blog. Or I would rather not hear: "are you sick?" Time after time.
So I decided today to for go the foundation. It's Fourth Of July, I'm gonna be outside. I don't want a dewy layer trying to smother me out on my face. My skin isn't without imperfections. My biggest problem being my under eye area. So what I done was I concealed and corrected like I normally would and then went about my normal routine of blush, highlight, and bronzer. Bronzer being the key.
My tips on how to do this are:
For eyes I do the same as I normally would, today I used Colour Pop Nillionaire shadow with ABH Red Earth, Fresh Peach, and China Rose. Lashes are Nubounsom "Bella" lashes. Brows are dip brow from Anastasia.
Lips are Colour Pop Pacific liquid lipstick.
So I done a full face of makeup without actually having to do the full face. So no primer or foundation. Of course you don't have to even go as dramatic as I did on the lid you can make it even more natural. I'm not going for a natural look, just more neutral. I just didn't feel like smothering under my foundation for the night in the muggy weather. The picture above isn't filtered, or detailed. It's smoothed a little under the eye because my dark circles sink in just a little, and it's noticeable in pictures, other than that nothing else was done to it.
The biggest difference that I can tell is when I use self tanner. So try that. See if it helps your complexion. I have some pink in my face and self tanner helps correct that somewhat. If my skin is super pink I use my foundations, if it's still slightly visible after self tanner then I would use concealer on a kabuki brush and go over it lightly. If I'm going to do that though then I would probably just use foundation.
I hope you had a happy and safe Fourth!
