I like to have flawless skin, but at the same time I am not someone who will put on a ton of makeup and have a fancy makeup look. Actually scratch that. I do wear a ton of makeup, but you do not realise how much stuff is on my face. So, if you are interested in a natural looking makeup look with focus on beautiful skin, keep reading.
A few disclaimers
I am 4o years old and my skin is in very good condition. I suffer from rosacea, so there is a lot of redness going on, but apart from that nothing else.
So, I started off with a facial cleanser. I used the Body shop’s Tea Tree facial wash. I like this product because even though it smells like a hospital and you would think that it strips your skin cause it is uber powerful, it isn’t.
I then used this really cool firming mask which I got from a pharmacy. I have one word for you. Pearls. Yeap. This face mask had pearl (extract?). It’s from a brand called
Then, I put on my Clinique Redness Solutions face cream. On top of that my Dior Forever Primer. Then time for concealer. I used my Maybeline Instant Anti age concealer under the eyes, Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer for other spots and on the cheeck bones my Touche Eclat by YSL. I blended everything using a beauty blender from H& M.
The foundation I used was the L’oreal Infallible 24 hr Matte. I then used the banana shade from the TooFaced Cocoa Contour Palette under my eyes I let that set a bit and then used a bit of my Diorskin Forever & Ever Control Loose Powder (it’s ok. Nothing special) to set my foundation. I started contouring with the light shade on my TooFaced Cocoa contour palette. I then applied blush Mac Fleur. I used the Laura Mercier highlighter in the shade Indiscretion. I blended everything a bit and then used a bit more powder while using a big powder brush. I used my Laura Mercier baked bronzer on top of that (both Laura Mercier products have turned into favourites).
On my eye I have the Laura Mercier Caviar stick in copper (it has melted a bit, so not very happy about that. It still looked nice on the eye, but I did have to throw away a little blob) and for mascara I am using the Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy mascara (some reviews say it flakes or sheds. I haven’t had that problem). On the lips Laura Mercier Lip Cream in Coral Reef ❤ ❤ . Perfume Chloe Love.
So, there you have it. Not a tutorial but what I use to have flawless skin and look kinda natural :).
