Today I am teaming up with Sephora Collection to share a simple, fresh faced look! I skipped eye liner and lip stick and went with false lashes & gloss instead!
Step #1: After moisturizing and priming skin, I used Sephora Collection 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation. This foundation is oil free so it is great for the oily girls out there and it is long wearing which is a must for me. I can’t wear a foundation that doesn’t last long because I have a lot of discoloration and scarring to cover up. This formula is nice because is medium to full coverage, but it is buildable. I had to build up the coverage a little.
Step #2: Next I used the Sephora Collection Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer in ‘Custard’ under my eyes. I went with a shade lighter to brighten my under eye area. This concealer is not super full coverage since it is more of a gel serum (very lightweight), but it blends & wears beautifully (aka not dryness, creasing, etc.). I have dark circles so I added a little bit of my Lancome concealer before applying this one. I use the Beauty Blender to blend it all in which makes a big difference.
Step #3: Oh my gosh - best step of all! So, I use a little bit of the Laura Mercier setting powder to set my foundation and under eye area and then I used the Sephora Collection Bronzer Powder in ‘Fiji’ to contour and bronze my face. This bronzer is easily one of the best bronzers I’ve ever tried! In fact, someone recommended it to me via Snapchat and I really didn’t expect it to be so good! It brings life to your face, blends well, is not orange looking and it wears for hours. You all have to try this!
Step #4: I lightly swept a little bit of this Marc Jacobs blush over my cheeks just to bring in a little bit of color.
Step #5: I used a few shades from Sephora Collection on my lid just lightly - nothing crazy. I used the ‘Hollywood Calling’ shade in my crease just to get it a little depth and then ‘Lucky Penny’ on my lid. I wasn’t super careful with placement since this is a light, fresh look!
Step #6: This step is all about eyes - though we are skipping eye liner on the top (not normal for me!), I still used Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12HR Wear on my lower lid and underneath my lashes. Next, I used the Sephora Collection ‘PLUSH’ lashes on top. They are super full, but not very long. They are great for making a statement. I think the 'Astonish Lash’ also would have been great for a fresh look!
Step #7: Last, but not least, I used Becca Cosmetics ‘Champagne Pop’ by Jaclyn Hill on my cheeks as a highlighter. Using a highlighter brightens the face and makes it more fresh and awake!
