Hi girl! I hope you’re having a great week. For the last 1.5 weeks, I had been hit by a plague sickness and finally feeling 95% like myself again. Some of my colleagues across the country have had this as well, so it seems really wide spread. Fingers crossed you don’t catch it!
Today I’m sharing my full coverage make up routine (!!!). I wear this routine anytime I want super full coverage [I have LOTS of freckles!] and/or need my make up to look fresh for 12+ hours. I have gotten my make up done professionally three times in my life. Every single time, I didn’t feel like myself, wiped it off and applied this routine. I even did my own make up on my wedding day [but hired a squad for my girls ;-)].
And guess what? At the beginning of 2017, I couldn’t even tell you what makes a great under eye concealer. I couldn’t tell you what foundations photograph beautifully. I couldn’t tell you what a beauty sponge does compared to a make up brush.
But a year and a half later, I feel completely confident with my beauty routine and the education I’ve built about the make up world – brands, products and techniques. I didn’t take . fancy class. I didn’t have an older sister in ‘the know’.
Guys – I learned make up from watching YouTube videos.
I watched girls that had similar skin and hair attributes as me. I also watched girls that are wonderful teachers. They may have been a blonde with oily skin [which is basically opposite of me], but they can teach the techniques!
All that to say – if you want to learn something, YOU CAN DO IT.
With the internet, you can learn ANYTHING. Heck – even right now I am enrolled in a blogging course to continue learning and it’s all virtual, social and email communication.
Okay so now onto the full coverage makeup routine. I have a video for you to watch since I personally find video make up posts the easiest to follow and the best to learn from.
Two things to keep in mind when you watch this video:
1. I filmed this in March, hence why it says ‘spring lip color’ at the end, but in reality that is my all-year round lip since it’s a neutral mauve-y pink. It wear it 99% of the time I reach for lipstick, no matter the season.
2. While this was filmed a few months ago, all the products are still in my full coverage make up routine. When it comes to beauty products, it takes something pretty dang amazing to pull me away from my tried and true products. I had done this routine five months before I filmed and now, still, five months after.
3. I used to do this routine every day, hence why I may say ‘everyday ten minute make up routine’. I have since found a routien that allows my skin to breathe [AKA no foundation] quicker fewer product ‘every day routine’ and save what I’m sharing today for a night out, blog shoots or big events when I really need full coverage. So no, I don’t wear foundation to work.. I let my sin breathe with a ilght CC cream.
I hope you find a new technicue ow product from today’s video tutorial. It’s my third ever YoutTube video.. Eeep! HERE is my first that’sall about them lashes! Enjoy! Xo Mindy
