Most days I don’t put on a full face of makeup. Going to work or out with friends/family, I normally just wear eye makeup and lipstick. But for special occasions, I like to go the extra mile. I like wearing face makeup for special occasions to make my skin look nicer, give me confidence and feel glamorous.

It’s important to me that the makeup I use has the safest ingredients possible, while still performing well and lasting through the day or night. That’s why I choose Beautycounter and 100% Percent Pure products. I’ve tried many brands and I find that these two work the best while utilizing the safest ingredients.

To achieve this look:  (see demo on my Instagram story highlights)

  1. After your usual skincare routine, prep your face and eye area with Mattifying Primer 
  2. Next, apply concealer under your eyes and over any blemishes or spots you may have that you want to cover 
  3. Choose a few colors from the Ultimate Nudes Eyeshadow Palette for your eyes. I always like to go with bronze colors for my eyes, so that they can have a natural look. 
  4. Next, apply eyeliner to bottom inner eye line 
  5. Now, apply foundation to face and neck 
  6. Apply matte bronzer over foundation 
  7. Apply a few coats of lengthening mascara to lashes 
  8. Choose your favorite shade of matte lipstick and apply to lips 
  9. Spray face all over with #2 Plumping Mist to set your makeup so it lasts all night!
