I have been using this Tone Adjusting Primer by e.l.f. After I moisturize my face, I apply a thin layer of this primer all over. It really toned down my discoloration and helps my makeup last all day. I let it set on my face for about 10 minutes so it’s velvety and a little tacky.

The Color Stay foundation by Revlon is perfect for the holiday season. It’s long wearing and never oxidizes on my skin. I apply a thin layer after my primer has set. This foundation is full coverage, but also very buildable. If you are using a brush, it streaks a lot easier. So, apply small downward strokes until completely blended or use a beauty blender for a flawless finish.



I like to wait a few minutes after my foundation is dry to put on my concealer. Using a concealer brush, I pat the product in triangle shapes under my eyes. This will help the light reflect in the middle of the face. I have mad scars on my forehead, so I also conceal those.

After I apply all the liquid makeup onto my face, I like to pat a small amount of translucent powder to my t zone. This helps with reducing shine and amplifying the airbrushed look.

Before I do anything else with my face, I like to fill in my eyebrows first. I feel like shaping and evening up your brows help frame the rest of the face. I just dip the angled brush into the wax and powder of the e.l.f. brow kit and fill those bad boys in.

I’m keeping my eyeshadow pretty simple. I went in my crease with a transition shade. Next, I dabbed a small amount of a darker shade on my outer v and blended it all out. I also placed a white color in the inner corner of my eyes as well as below my brow bone.



I use the tiniest bit of bronzer on the top of my forehead and cheekbones. I also like to sweep a little underneath by jaw line because the rest of my face is so pale (don’t want to look uneven).



Next, the highlight. I’m not as obsessed with highlight as much as most girls. But, since it is the holiday season, I’m going to place a little more highlight to make it pop above and below my cheekbones (where I placed the bronzer). The highlight that comes in the Light & Shade Contour Palette by Kat Von D is subtle enough for me.




My go to mascara right now is Scandeyes by Rimmel. I apply 2 or 3 coats and I’m finished. The brush grips and curls my lashes better than any mascara I’ve used.



Finally, I’m lining my lips with a Milani liner and applying a red lipstick from e.l.f. A bold red lip can bring some life to any look.
