Honey & Chocolate | #makeupmondays

February 01, 2017


Bringing back photo step-by-step tutorials this week. Let me know on instagram if you prefer this to videos or vice versa or if you like a mixture of both, I can definitely alternate. Photo step-by-steps are little easier for me because I can do them on my own, but I'm so down to do videos if you prefer!

I've been crazy in love (catch that Beyonce reference - concert in 4 days!) with browns and golds lately, so I decided to do a super bold look for today's makeup monday. There are slight differences in the makeup because we did film this look on two different days, so don't worry for the majority it looks relatively the same. I chose not to take individual photos of all the products, but I will have them in the blog post in a slide in order and you can click them to order the products online/see where to buy them, etc. etc. I really hope you all enjoy this look. Be sure to tweet me your looks, I wanna see! xx

Step-by-step // Honey & Chocolate

1. Moisturize and Prime Your Face

I get hella acne the day after wearing a full face of makeup, so I started moisturizing with Clean & Clear's Dual Action Moisturizer. It contains Salicylic Acid to help treat and prevent acne and leaves my face protected all day. Next I prime my face with Benefit's PoreFessional Primer, which I did a review on and you can check that out here.

2. Apply Foundation

I'm using one of my favorite lightweight foundations - Sephora Collection's 10Hr Wear Foundation in the color 
057 Deep Chocolate.

3. Dab + Blend

I use my 'Blush' brush from MYMAKEUPBRUSHSET (blog coming soon!) in a dabbing motion (not that kind of dab) to apply my foundation. I feel like it applies the foundation must smoother and provides more coverage.

4. Brows

You know the drill, Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in EBONY.

5. Brow Highlight/Clean Up

I highlight/clean up around my brows with the MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer in NC50. (Brush from STILA)
