Everyday Makeup Look | Allison Marie

 

Ladies, I know makeup can be intimidating. I get a lot of
women walking into Ulta and they are just so overwhelmed by it all. I believe
it is a combination of the endless aisles of makeup, the perfectly contoured
employees, and all of the different brands to choose from. Their heads are
spinning and they don’t know where to start or what to buy. I was there once.
It has taken me several years, lots of wasted dollars, and trial and error to
figure out what works for me. And I’m still learning. So, I am going to give
you the basics that I tell each one of these clients and what I wish someone
would have told me from the very beginning. ; )
 
Necessary items to have in your makeup bag are: foundation,
concealer, powder, eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, eyeliner, mascara, brow product,
lipstick, and at least 3 brushes (for foundation, powder, and blush)
Step 1: Prep skin with moisturizer. Apply foundation with
brush, sponge, or beauty blender. Try to avoid using fingertips because it will
not go on evenly and you don’t want to transfer any germs from your hands onto
your face. My favorite foundation is Tarte Amazon Clay. Just make sure it has
an SPF in it, because you do get sun exposure all year round, even in the
winter!
 
Step 2: This is where you can add concealer under the eye and/or
to cover any blemishes. I recommend using it overtop of foundation instead of
under. Then, you always set everything with powder. I prefer loose powder. I
love Smashbox Halo to Go Hydrating Perfecting Powder. (Tip: There are different
types of concealer. One for the face doesn’t necessarily work for under the
eye. Also, a green concealer is great for covering up redness.)
 
Step 3: Bronzer is perfect for every day. But it’s different
than contouring. The definition of bronzer is giving the appearance of a
suntan. The proper way to apply bronzer is to make two “c’s” — one on each
side of the face from your forehead to your cheeks and then from your cheeks to
your jawline. You want to give the appearance that the sun is shining down on
you from above almost like a halo effect.
 
Step 4: Blush would have to be the number one makeup mishap
I see on a daily basis. Usually it’s applied too high up on the cheekbones and
in a straight line. The key to applying blush is from the corner of the mouth
to the top of the ear in a slight upward curve. For those with a longer face,
like me, I recommend applying from the corner of the nose in a curve like
motion to the top of the ear. Urban Decay has some of the best blushes. Rapture is a very pretty one that looks great on everybody.
 
Step 5:  You can never
go wrong with a gold eyeshadow. It is my go-to. It goes with every outfit and
looks good on everyone!
 
Step 6: I never leave home without black eyeliner. I love
Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner in Trooper. Felt tips are quick and precise for the
lid. If I have extra time, I will use a gel liner. The trick to perfect winged
liner is to work from the outside in. I like pencils for tight-lining, which
means to go along the upper and lower lashes with eyeliner. If you don’t like to wear
eyeliner or don’t have a steady hand, skip ahead to the next step.
 
Step 7: Black mascara makes your eyes look bigger and
brighter. My favorite mascaras are: Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara and
Urban Decay’s Perversion. And if you really want to splurge, you can get
eyelash extensions or tint your eyelashes.
 
Step 8: Eyebrows are what’s in right now. So, I always fill
them in or apply a brow gel. All of my brow products are by Anastasia BeverlyHills. She is the queen of brows.
 
Step 9: Lastly, don’t forget to put on lipstick or a
lipgloss
