Get ready with Me! 

I woke up like this ! So this morning I figured I document my steps on how I apply my foundation and “bake” my face. Baking is a fabulous trick we stole from the Drag queen world ! I don’t bake everyday because I simply don’t have that luxury of time everyday but it is a wonderful way to keep your concealer in place . At this point I only have on my face :

-Nivea after shave balm (sensitive skin )

-Too Face Hangover X primer

-Mario badescu under eye cream

Nivea After shave balm ( sensitive skin )  is a recent addition to my routine but let me tell y’all , I love it ! It has Glycerin which helps make up adhere better to your skin and last longer .

Don’t mind my eyebrows and eyelashes application details for those  will be on a future post, I applied my Fit me foundation with foundation brush and pushed it into my skin with my Beauty Blender (it needs a desperate wash) .

Voila! There we have it out foundation is on ! Now on to the fun part contouring .

I love contouring it gives me life ! Since my most  self-conscious  part of my face  is my forehead I apply more product onto that portion, I use LA Girl pro conceal in the color chestnut . Now beware once this product dries it is really hard to blend . I was distracted taking pictures that mine dried out a bit and was super hard to blend . No worries, I spraied a little fix plus all over my face and ta-da!

Quick note : they face I am making has a purpose , when I was learning how to apply creame contour this is how I learned . I sucked in my cheeks  in order to feel my cheek bone and apply my liquid contour right under that line .

After I blend I conceal and highlight , as you can see I love to conceal my under eyes , bacause I have such trouble sleeping I have terrible bags under my eyes ! So I pack it on.  I use my beauty blender the pointy part to blend blend.

This  is after in blend it out .

Now we move on to baking! I use: NYC translucent loose powder and apply it with a wedge sponge I got at CVS . I allow for the powder to sit meanwhile I set my contour . To set my face I use my Stay Matt Powder in my shade .
 To set my contour I use the Kat Von D  Shade And Light pallete.

I brushed off the excess product and used the same baking technique to clean up my contour .

I applied my favorite lipstick and brushed off the excess product , blended out any harsh lines with a clean Real Techniques stippling brush and there you have it I am ready for my day .
