I love going to Sephora and looking at all the beautiful products and packaging. Plus, I always learn some tricks from the make up artists. I don’t wear much make up but I always enjoy applying it. It feels nice to get make up applied professionally but sometimes I don’t feel like myself when its all finished.
I did my own make up for my Memphis Health + Fitness cover shoot and wanted to share what products I used.
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – I start by applying this primer to a freshly washed face. I like to use a primer when I know I’ll be getting my picture taken because it helps mattify and control oil.
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD – This foundation is very natural looking and I love how my skin photographs when I have it on. I apply it with a sponge for a flawless look. When I use a brush I sometime see streaks and need to spend some extra time blending.
Korres Concealer Correcteur – I am very sad I can no longer go to Sephora to pick up this concealer. I used the medium-03 for under my eyes.
Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Micorfinish Powder – This is the very last product I apply. Well, second to last. My lips are the very last thing I do. This finishing powder is another product to help reduce shine and mattify the skin. I have this pressed version also, the loose powder can make such a mess so I take the pressed powder when I travel.
BareMinerals Brighten, Contour and Highlight – This was a 500 point perk from Sephora, I usually save up my points for something really intereting that I want to try. This starter kit from BareMinerals was perfect for me to try because I had actually never used BareMinerals products. I am a fan of light contouring and highlighting and I was really happy with how these loose powders turned out.
Urban Decay Naked – This original Naked palette is amazing. I am able to do a natural eye, a smokey eye and everything in between.
Tweezerman ProCurl Eyelash Curler – I curled my lashes before I apply masacara.
Benefit They’re Real! – This mascara does wonders, it really does lengthen and add volume.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo – I prefer powders over creams when filling in my eyebrows. I use the lighter shade for the beginning of my brows and the darker shade for the ends. This powder duo is in Taupe.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush #12 – I am obsessed with brushing my eyebrows, even if I don’t fill them in they must be brushed. I do it every morning, photos or not.
Glō-Minerals Gloss – This gloss is in Nude. My go to lip is definitely a nude and natural color. This gloss has a great sheen and texture without being too sticky.
I hope you enjoyed and thanks for checking out my site!
