I've had a hectic April and May, so I am finally back (now that June has arrived) in full swing!
I was away in Mexico for a solid 10 days. It was SO necessary!
I had just finished a feature that we'd shot in 10 days in Galena, IL.
(I'll post about that as soon as I'm allowed!)
Film is a lot of work, a lot of time, and little sleep. So I was definitely ready for a vacation!
I don't take much in the way of makeup, because for the entire 10 days I was away, I think put makeup on ONCE! We went out to a nice restaurant and I wanted to look decent : )
So here is my quick before and after as well as what I used.
Tools and products I packed for my trip (in it's entirety) !
Tweezerman Classic Eyelash Curler
Maybelline Full 'N' Soft Mascara (waterproof of course)
Three Custom Color Cream to powder blush in Pink
Three Custom Color Invisible pressed powder
Three Custom Color Concealer/foundations in Light and Medium
Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Medium
MAC eyeshadows in Shroom, Cork, and Espresso
Smashbox Lipstain in Guava
*All conveniently packed in my little Z Palette*
What Needed to be Done:
Something I always struggle with is dark circles. I've had them since I was a kid!
You also can't tell from the photo- but I did have a little too much sun that hit my nose!
I needed to even out my skin a little better.
Enhance my eyes, and add a little more color!
What was done:
I took a little concealer/foundation and placed it where ever it was needed to even out redness-- Around the nose, on the chin, forehead and eyes.
I used Eve Pearl's salmon concealer around the eyes to neutralize any blue cast from the dark circles.
I added my cream blush to my cheeks and lips with my fingers.
I set it all with a light dusting of translucent powder.
I added some iridescent shadow (MAC shroom), to the inner corner of my eyes to brighten them.
I placed a soft brown (MAC cork) in my natural eye crease to add a subtle definition.
I finished the eyes by curling my lashes and adding a coat of mascara.
And to polish off the look, I took a little brown eyeshadow (MAC espresso) with an angle hair brush to my brows!
That's it folks!
And then I pulled down my beach hair and pinned half up. yay!
Honestly, this does not fall far from my day to day makeup routine! I'm always sure to carry a few different lipsticks in my purse to change it up :)
