Step 1: Primer

Helps increase the longevity of your makeup and compact oiliness. It also makes your skin appear smoother for a flawless foundation application and appearance.

Step 2: Foundation

I like to apply my foundation with a beauty blender sponge. I usually spray a little water on the sponge prior to applying the foundation with it.

Step 3: Brows

I like to use an eyebrow pomade when I want to be BEAT FOR THE GAWDDDDDDDS but I also recommend ELF brow pen for super beginners.

Step 4: Eyes (eyeshadow, eyeliner & then mascara)

Eyeshadow first, then eyeliner and then mascara… in that order! If you want to apply eyelashes, apply after mascara.

Step 5: Concealer (Apply concealer and set the concealer with power)

I use a beauty blender to blend out my concealer. I like to apply my concealer in a triangle shape and then blend out. Then I take a little setting power and apply under my eye to help increase the longevity of my concealer. I allow that power to sit under eye no more then a minute before I wipe off. This is what we call “baking” in the makeup game.

Step 6: Contour

I personally like to contour my face as it makes my face look thinner and my cheakbones pop. Contouring is strategically adding darker colors your face to create a shadow. If you find your makeup looks flat, contouring can help.

Step 7: Blush

Blush is used to add a flush of color to the cheeks. I use to think blush was not made for women of color but I was going about it wrong! Women of color can use blush to add that sunkissed look to their face. If you’re darker, I recommend investing in blush colors such as burnt orange, dark red and shades of cranberry.

Step 8: Highlight

Opposite of contouring is highlighting where you apply light colors to your face to draw attention to it! I like to add a highlight to make my skin look like it’s glowing! I apply on top of my cheekbones.

Step 7: Lipstick

Lipstick, lipgloss, chapstick… whatever you decide but I like to apply my lippie last!
