What you'll need:
*Face: MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation SPF 15 is great and not gross like the others!*Brows: Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Brunette
*Lips: MAC Cremesheen in Creme Cup*Eyes: MAC eyeshadow in Carbon and Scene
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink*Cheeks: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Pink Raspberry
1. Begin with a freshly washed and moisturized face. Give your skin a couple of minutes for the moisturizer to set in.
2. With a stippling brush, buff the Studio Sculpt foundation onto your skin in circular motions. Although this formula is quite dewy, if you'd like to up the moisture factor, first mix the foundation on the back of your hand with a bit of your moisturizer.
3. Fill in brows with the left side (the lighter shade) of the Brow Powder Duo, using an angled liner brush. Remember, your eyebrows don't have to match perfectly, and always use short wispy strokes to prevent the look of a dark and harsh line (no, your brows don't look like that naturally.)
4. Use Scene shadow with a shader brush to apply color to your lid. Don't stray past the crease, and always tap your brush after picking up color, to remove excess powder. For extra staying power, prime your eye first with a shadow primer like Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
5. Using a fluffy blending brush, dab just a very small amount of the Carbon shadow on the outer most V of your eye. Use as little shadow as possible and then build up, creating the effect of a sideways V, which progresses into the crease. If you start with just a little shadow at a time, you eliminate the risk of having to start over. Blend blend blend, but try to keep to the area right at the crease and below. One day I promise to get to drawing a diagram on this or something, but you get it, right?
6. Next, line your upper and lower lid with your gel liner, using a liner brush that offers control (not those long wispy good-for-nothing ones). Mascara it up! I forgot to add a brand for this, but whatever suits you is just fine!
7. With the same stippling brush that was used earlier, lightly apply your pot rouge to the apples of your cheeks. Don't draw it out to the temples or anything--just ensure that it's well blended.
8. After checking that your lips are well moisturized (because if they're not, it's just sick when you slap lipstick on over some crusty lips), add a bit of lipstick in a light pink/lip tone-enhancing shade.
You're done! Remember though--all of the products and tools that I've listed are not hard and fast. It's just a general guideline for what you can use to achieve Zeisha's look. If you are hell bent on using your own savvy little gadgets, then be my guest! Want dupes for any of the above listed? Just say the word!
Have a great weekend, lovelies ;)
