After my video of my tousled wave hair tutorial posted, I’ve been getting all sorts of questions about what makeup I am wearing. I love playing around with makeup and different looks so I am glad to be able to share this with you all! For this specific look, I wanted to emulate the natural, glowing and sweet Victoria’s Secret runway look since it went along with the topic of the hair how-to. I’ve listed all of what I use below but I will also give you a brief rundown of how I apply it from start to finish!
To start, I use my base and my under eye brightener plus any concealer I might need. I like this tinted moisturizer below as a good start to help make my skin look supple and fresh. I also swear by this eye brightener…I’ve tried others before but this is my favorite by far! From there I apply my foundation all over with light coverage. I’ve used this foundation for years and each time I stray, I come right back to it. I love the matte, even finish it gives my skin while still letting it breathe. From there, once I have a nice even canvas, I do a little bit of slight shading and highlighting. You can find my tips and an easy tutorial here! I like to shade first and then highlight. The key is to BELND BLEND BLEND. From there, I add a touch of blush. Next, I work on my eyes using just a light sweep on shadow on the lid, the crease and the inner corner. I use a light touch of dark brown or black liner mostly just on the top lash line. You’ll notice there is a light shade of liner linked below– I use that for the inner lower lash line to help make my eyes look brighter and pop just a little more. After that comes mascara and I finish with touching up my brows with a pencil to help shade in the lighter spots. Once all that is done, I line my lips, color them in and apply a touch of gloss. **For the look here, I listed what colors I used on my lips but I will say that I did a lot of blotting after coloring in my lips to tone down the boldness of the color. This way, they look more stained with a touch of gloss rather than a full application of opaque color.
