Today I want to talk about a couple things, not crazy in depth because I ramble. A LOT. Sooo a quick summary of what this post is going to be about :
1) I decided to do a concealer/foundation/full coverage tutorial because my skin is definitely not as flawless as it sometimes looks. I just happen to be really good at covering stuff lol
2) I am posting a pic of me without any makeup on. NONE. I'm scared to do this because I'm not comfortable without makeup, but I feel like we should all be comfortable with ourselves regardless of what we look like. This is something that I myself am coming to terms with and maybe this will help me and others to realize that EVERYONE is beautiful, inside and out regardless of what we put on our faces, or lack there of. Please be kind lol
So the other day on Never Too Much Sparkle!, the Facebook group I'm in, I saw a conversation about too much airbrushing on photos. I myself do not airbrush my photos because honestly I don't know how. Lol. But I don't think I would anyway because I'm pretty good at making my skin look good and even. So Aranza of A Touch of Glamour and I got into a conversation how I do concealer. So for her I'm doing a concealer tutorial. Thanks for the inspiration! So first off, before I chicken out and don't post these pics ....here they are
yes people, I only have half eye brows hahah
here I am. Under eye circles, freckles, weird redness lol and equally strange non sexy faces. BAM
n wtf is up with hair. :x meh
...yea thats not awkward lol...
So now I'll do a few pictures of the steps I go through,
These are all the things I use to get a flawless face
*Also please refer to my palette pictures I post them below to the tutorial, and the numbers will go next to the product I am using
Get your face nice and clean, I usually prep my face with Monistat Chafing Relief Powder Gel
Take your color concealer and cover any blemishes you want. I use yellow and green concealer as well , # 6 green concealer for the redness in my face and # 2 yellow for under eye circles, and #'s 7 & 12 flesh tones for covering freckles and evening my skin tone.
So basically I start with this-
eeeeek haha dont mind the hairssss
and I end up with this
I use liquid foundation, I always have so if you use any powders or mineral makeup instead skip this step. But I put whatever liquid I use all over, CoverGirl Clean Makeup Normal Skin
So you get this
Then I contour #5 and highlight #'s 1 & 2 , I contour my cheek bones and just highlight my nose and under eyes, and then I add my brows.
So I get this
I add my bronzer (NYC Sun N Bronze in Hamptons Radiance) all over my face and My blush (# 6 on the contour palette) over the contours I made and the apples of my cheeks....
and Voila! pseudo photoshop! haha
So there you have it.... Thats how I conceal my flaws and even out my uneven skintone. lol I wish I could get better pictures for you guys but it's dark out right now and my lighting is terrible!
I feel pretty liberated because of posting pictures without makeup on. I kind of liked it actually, it was fun! It also wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to actually click the publish button. :)
I hope everyone out there feels beautiful, inside and out, no matter what you look like, what you wear, what color you are, whatever you think your flaws are... just remember if I have the balls enough to do this (and believe me when I say I am SUPER INSECURE with no makeup) then you can too. Maybe everyone should do a post like this! It will be like when everyone burned their bras! Haha !
- Always -
*blows glitter kisses*
o yea, here are the charts! haha
