Ya know, Oaks has taught me a lot. Taught me patience, how to enjoy simple things, and how to get ready at the speed of light. So I wanted to share with you, my 5 min face make up with you. For me, I’d rather have a nice bronzed glow than put on mascara or eye liner. It’s VERY simple and easy to follow. That is what I like. I don’t have time to dick around haha and when I like to get more dressed up, Oaks is sleeping or If Im lucky, he’s sitting through a movie.
OKAY- here we go, ya ready?
STEP 1: FOUNDATION. Add Estee Lauder Double Wear all over face with THIS BRUSH.
STEP 2: CHEEKBONES. I use the smashbox brush that comes in their kit because I love it. Then I use a Medium Anastasia Contour Kit. You can honestly just get the smash box kit all together. Both good!
Anyways, so I start brushing with not a lot on the brush. I use the darkest color in the kit and brush from my ear to by my upper lip and bottom of my nose, just outlining the jaw line, making your cheek bones pop. The reason you do this is so you make your face look thinner.
Apply small amounts at a time, so you don’t have to go through a buffer if off.
STEP 3: FOREHEAD. Using the same brush and color, I outline my forehead and bring it down connecting to the ear, where I started for the cheekbones. Then I bronze the forehead. This makes your forehead appear smaller.
STEP 4: NOSE. Then I contour the nose with the same brush, but hold the actual brush to make the brush smaller. I use the darker color (same one from the kit) , and outline the tip of my nose. I then bring it all the way to my brow on the top of my nose. Doing this on both sides of the nose. This will make your nose appear thinner and smaller… aka Khloe Kardashian nose job look.
Then kinda dab it to blend it with the Beauty Blender. Make sure you don’t have noticeably two dark streaks down your nose.
STEP 5: GLOW. After you’re all contoured up, we I then make my face all glowy and dewy… glowy isn’t a word, but I love it. So I use Carli Bybels eye shadow/glow pallet, and she has this gold in their for this exact thing. Its huge and you should get it now. It’s the BEST.
Anyways, I use THIS BRUSH and the gold color, then fan it on my cheek bones, and a tiny tiny bit on my forehead. Then with my fingers, I’ll dab my finger in the gold and apply on the tip of my nose. Just a little, and then in my inner eyes.
This will make your face pop! Trust me. You’ll love it.
I know this might be a little hard to understand, so I’m going to post the tutorial on my IG stories so you can see more clearly and in action. I’ll save it under my highlight on my instagram after so you can watch it after. It’s going to be under “MAKE UP”.
