Step 1. Foundation

First, I mix Lune + Aster RealGlow Primer with L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Pro-Glow Foundation and apply it all over my face with a beauty basics sponge.
There’s a matte version and a radiant version of the L’Oreal Infallible…I’m using the radiant version for a lighter, more natural look.
I also really love that it’s a long wear makeup.
This is really useful if you have to put your makeup on earlier in the day or go straight from work to a holiday party in the evening.
Tip: Make sure you really blend the foundation into your hairline and down your neck so that you can’t see a line of makeup around your face!

Step 2. Concealer

Next, I use the Infallible ProGlo Concealer under my eyes and on any other read areas like my nose or chin.
You can blend this with your finger or a beauty sponge.

Step 3. Eyelid Primer

After the concealer, I use L’Oreal Magic Decrease Eyelid Primer to make sure the eyeshadow stays on.
Tip: It’s kind of sticky so I like to go back with a sponge and blend it out!

Step 4. Eyebrows

Next, I use Gimme Brow by Benefit to enhance my brows a little bit.
It keeps them up and adds just enough color.

Step 5. Contour

I use the Charlotte Tilbury FilmStar Bronze and Glow Palette for contouring.
It has a face sculpt powder and a highlighter.
So I dust the face sculpt powder along my jawline and on my cheekbones to create some contour.
Since I want a warmer looking face, I also put it around my forehead to create a little more definition and add some color.
Next, I add some color to the apples of my cheeks.
Lastly, I add a little highlighter to the top of my cheekbones and down my nose.

Step 6. Eyes

I want to keep it simple on the eyes.
I want them to be warm, brown, and bronzy rather than something dark.
This eye look is perfect for any party, not just a holiday party!

The Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette has a lot of beautiful brown tones.
First, I used ‘Coconut Cream’ from the lash line to the brow line.
I added ‘Mousse’ in the crease.
Then, I put a little “Cocoa Chili” on the upper lash line, and a thin line of black liquid liner to define the eye.

I finished off my eyes with IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara.
If you wanted to go bigger, you could add fake lashes or add more shadow to the crease!

Step 7. Lips

This is my all-time favorite red lipstick by Sephora!
It’s actually a lip stain…so it goes on wet and dries matte.
I love it so much because it really does stay on my lips even after eating and drinking and talking!
