No-makeup makeup

Want to achieve that no makeup, makeup look? Check out the following photo and product breakdown to achieve the look.

Prep your skin with your daily skin routine and make sure you have beautiful hydrated skin. Use a Beauty oil of your liking and apply a few drops to the palm of your hands and press it in to the skin until it is fully absorbed. Use the Anastasia cream stick foundation and apply three swatches over your face– both checks and your forehead. Take your favourite blending brush and blend until you have a beautiful sheer coverage. Once complete, use a powder puff or a dry beauty blender and pat it on the skin. This gets rid of excess oil and foundation. Apply a bit of highlighter and bronzer if you would like. I just applied the Aurora Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Use the same bronzer and highlight over your eye lids for a harmonious look. Lips and brows are up to you– you can pick a bold lip and brow or go natural like I have above.  ūüíč

ABH- Product Breakdown

If you know me, you know that I LOVE all of Anastasia’s Products. When she came out with her foundation sticks I was thrilled. To your surprise, I fell in love with the foundation as well. ¬†Coverage is buildable and I use a synthetic foundation buffing brush to apply and set it with a wet beauty blender. You always want to make sure you use the right tools for this product. If you have dry to combination skin, use a beauty oil first then apply the foundation. If you have oily prone skin, make sure that you set the foundation. They are multi-purposeful and can be used for contour and highlight as well.


Oil Recommendation: ABH beauty Oil, Josie Argon Or Boscia Beauty Oil!!

Setting Powder: Kat Von D Transluncent powder or Laura Mercier Translucent

A Kim Kardashian inspired makeup look.

EYES: VICE 3 Palette using the blue tones

COMPLEXION: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, Fluid Sheer # 10 for the highlighter and Anastasia Contour Kit.

BROWS: Anastasia Beverly Hils Brow Pomade in ‘Chocolate’

LIPS: Tom Ford ¬†‘Spanish Pink’




image (5)All about Pantone’s color of the year MARSALA. for this look I created a Brow Block and wanted a straight brow. I used Anastasia Brow fix wax and Makeup forever Plasto Wax to create a seamless surface. Thereafter, I created my new brow using Anastasia Brow Wiz & Brow pomade.

For the rest of my look, I used pantone’s Marsala eye palette and the Shimmering cheek trio. I created a more edgy look, but trust me when I say that this palette is absolutely beautiful and fully pigmented. Finished off my lips with OCC ‘Sybil’ liner and Armani ‘202’ Lip Maestro.




The plasto wax is very easy to use to create your desired look. Play with it and warm it up prior to application. Use very little wax and add on if you need. If you use too much wax you’ll find it harder to create your look. Make sure you set your makeup before moving onto the recreation of your brow.



Winter Inspiration

I created a look that all came from winter inspirations.It’s all about glitter and icy cool tones. I used a variety of my favorite go-to products. Brows all from Anastasia Beverly Hills in chocolate brown in the brow pomade. Use the brow fix wax prior to applying the pomade and finish off the brows with a brow gel. Marc Jacobs brow jell is actually one of my favorites. Other gels you could also use are Anastasia, Shu Eumura, Bobbi Brown or even Benefit. On my eyes i have have the Huda Beauty lashes in Samantha, Marc Jacobs eye liner, and the Stila Mind palette on my eyes. Foundation I used Armani Luminous Silk in 5.75 & 8. ¬†To finish off the look I paired it with Giorgio Armani Fluid sheer in #2. The Glitter is the Sephora Collection Glitter pens.
