What Makeup? II

November 14, 2008

If I’m feeling up to it, I’ll add these simple steps to my first “What Makeup?” routine:

Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Moist Glow

Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Moist Glow

1. Dab Kevyn Aucoin’s Creamy Moist Glow in Liquifusion onto apples of cheek and blend toward temples. Lighter skin tones should use a mellower shade.

2. Fill in brows with a stiff-bristled, angled brow brush and dark brown eyeshadow.

3. Generously layer on Dior DiorShow Mascara in Black, the most gloriously clump-free mascara out there.

My skin looks bare yet uniform after these simple steps:

Make Up Forever Face & Body Liquid Makeup

  1. Start with clean, moisturized skin.
  2. Apply a peanut-sized dollop of Smashbox Photo Finish Light Foundation Primer to face. This version has all of the staying power and none of the slipperiness of the original.
  3. Shake up a bottle of Make Up Forever Face and Body Liquid Makeup (I use Camel 18), and  apply whatever ends up in the cap and on the inner rim of the bottle with a foundation brush wherever you need it. It’s a light foundation, but the primer will help maximize it’s coverage.That is all.
