My Everyday Makeup Routine with a Pop of Color

Hello beauties! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and a excellent Black Friday shopping. Today I want to share with you my everyday makeup routine. I not a makeup artist or good at it, to be honest with you. But I have done my makeup enough to understand what work and what doesn’t, for me.
I will be guiding you through my makeup routine in steps to better assist you.
Step 1: I always start with  foundation. The Dior Forever foundation was been my go to. It’s light to medium coverage foundation with a non-oily textured finish. It gives the most flawless finish without ever looking cake-y.  I always use 2 pumps to cover my whole face with a Beauty Blender applicator.
Step 2: I apply my concealer. For concealer I use the LA Girl Pro concealer in Fawn. We all heard about how affordable and amazing these these concealers are. I apply it under my eye, on the bridge of my nose, and down my chin. I’m very light handed with it. Less is more.
Step 3: I apply my neutral makeup and do my wig liner. I am terrible at applying eye-shadows, so I stick with the basics. I recently bought the Morphy 350 palette which is great for neutral looks. I usually apply any of the brown colors on my eyelid follow by a gold shimmery color in the inner-tear- duct.
Step 4: I do my eyebrows. This step usually takes me the longest, because my brows don’t have any shape at all, plus there very thin. I use the Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Wiz. How I get it to look perfect is best explained on a video, than on a blog post. I will soon start filming Youtube video on my channel.
Step 5:  I apply my powder, blush, contour and highlight. I use the Cover Fx Pressed Mineral Foundation as my powder. Then I contour with Sleek MakeUP Cream Contour Kit Extra Dark. I then apply my Mac Powder Blush in Full fuchsia. And finally I  use DIOR Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Shimmering Sculpting Powder to give me that dewy glow we all love.
Step 6: I finish with my lips. I know  that nude mate lips are everyone go to now, but I am a glossy lip kinda girl. I really am not a big nude lip fan so I mostly have red on my lips. Since it’s fall, I have been loving the vamp lip colors like the MAC Cosmetics Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour topped with a gloss.
I really hope you find this guide helpful. please let me know if you have any beauty topics you want me to cover. Thankyou so much for reading.

xoxo, Fatou
