Using a dense foundation brush, pat the foundation into your skin by bouncing the foundation brush on your skin until foundation is smoothly absorbed. Then, buff your skin with circular motions using the foundation brush until skin looks smooth and flawless.

Eyebrows

Fill in your brows using your favorite method (here’s how I fill in my eyebrows).

Brush the hairs of your eyebrows up and then set in place using the spoolie from NYX Brow Glue.

Eyeshadow

Apply eyeshadow primer. (I used e.l.f. 16HR Camo Concealer in Light Sand and patted it in with a small powder brush.)

Apply a bright eyeshadow color all over your eyelids. (I used the color Champagne Silk from the LUXAZA Eyeshadow Stick Set in Brown.)

Using the same dark color, draw a vertical line from your outer lash to just past the crease of your eye toward the tail of your brow. Then lightly fill in this line in a triangle shape.

Using a thin eyeliner pen, draw a line close to the lash line starting from the middle of your eye. to your last lash keeping the line straight, rather than following the lash line. Then fill in the eyeliner to make a subtle wing. (I used e.l.f. Cosmetics Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in coffee)

Contour & Blush

TikTok taught me to not be scared of contour. It’s actually really easy to apply and makes a big difference in how finished your makeup looks.

Start by Applying Cream Contour in the following areas of your face:

  • The underside of your cheekbone
  • Just on the edge of your jaw
  • Across your forehead
  • Down the sides of your nose
  • Under your bottom lip

Then add your cream blush just above your contour.

Blend by bouncing a foundation brush on the contour and blush until it’s smooth and blended.

Use a small powder brush to blend the contour on the side of your nose and under your mouth.

Dot either a cream highlighter or concealer one or two shades lighter than your in the following areas:

  • Inside corner of the eye
  • Outside the corner of the eye going up toward the tail of your brow
  • Down the nose
  • In the marionette lines
  • Above your cupid’s bow

Line your lips with your mouth closed, avoiding any wrinkles on the corners of your mouth. (Check out my lip tutorial for a more in-depth description of this.)
