I am a creature of habit. Although I like to try new things and experiment, once I find something that works, I tend to stick with it for awhile. This makeup look is something I have been constantly wearing for the last month. Maybe not all the elements put together every time, but more or less the same thing. Variations of brown are where I feel most comfortable when it comes to makeup. And my obsession with brown lipstick this season knows no bounds. For me, this is a look that goes on fairly quickly if I am only interrupted a handful of times to refill water cups, or retrieve a stolen toy.
I will list all the products used at the bottom of the post.
I just started with a primer, then used a beauty blender to apply my foundation. Next, I added concealer to my under eye area, making an upside down triangle underneath my eyes, and then blending that out. I also put a line of concealer down my nose, and blend it.
Then I used a bronzer and blush combination on my cheeks, and topped with a highlighter.
I then just filled in my eye brows with a tinted eyebrow gel. Moving on to the eye shadow, I used my Butter London palette and did a base of dark brown, and topped it with a bronze shade in the middle. Then blended the top with a lighter shade up to my brows.
A few coats of mascara and those are done!
I finished the whole look off with a slightly brown matte liquid lipstick.
It seems kind of like a lot, but I can promise you the process goes really fast.
eyeshadow: butter london in matte chocolate brown, quartz, and matte vanilla
lipstick: doucce in dark lust
So, I have to ask.....I have been getting quite a few requests for makeup and hair tutorials. With a few skincare questions. Is this something that anyone really wants to see (other than the people that have emailed me?). I mean, clearly that is not in the realm of my normal posting, but something I am totally willing to incorporate if that will help you out with some hair and makeup tips. Let me know. Or just say, Kelsey, no. Just no.
I can take it.
