Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my style in my daily adventures of life.

Hope you have a nice stay!

Easy Contouring for busy ladies.

Hola mis Fashionistas,

Its been a while, like always life and its surprising events, I had a big move and adjusting but now we are good to go! 

I want to share with you ladies a quick make up tutorial, on quick contouring.

I have started using make up more than before and learning what works for me and maybe for you too. When you have a busy day all day and everyday and you don't have time to spare in 1 hour makeup session everyday this technique will probably come in handy.

Don't get me wrong when I am going out on a weekend or an event i spend my time getting ready but in the mornings as hectic as they already are I like a quick fix up that makes me look good and natural at the same time.

See how I achieve this quick and easy natural look below...

For this look I used the following products

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle- Light Pale

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse -Caramel Dark 2

CIRCA Beauty Optical Illusion- Black and Clinique's High Impact Mascara

MAC Bronzing Powder -

REVLON Violet Frenzy

Before Any Makeup

Step 1

 I applied the Maybelline Instant Age rewind eraser like in the picture above. Its like a soft pencil and you are making a design in your face. (its actually fun) lol. The shade of my dark circle eraser is lighter that my skin to give it a highlight look.

Step 2

I then used a concealer brush which is really small and applied some of the liquid mousse on my cheeks notice i made the line where the side of my lips end, in my nose to make it look thinner and my chin as well. Pleas note that the shade of the mousse must be darker than your tone, like if it was a bronzer.

Then I blended both with a Stippling brush, mine is from 

BrushLove

. Try to blend in all the light parts first incorporating the dark each in their own areas.

Final Touches I added some of my MAC Bronzing Powder on my cheeks and a tip I add a little at the top of my forehead by my hairline to make the foundation color blend in and not seem like I'm wearing foundation.  I also added Mascara and eyeliner to make my eyes stand out a little bit. I used CIRCA Beauty Optical Illusion- Black and Clinique's High Impact Mascara. I like to combine both because they have different brushes. To me CIRCA helps them separate the eyelashes and the other one spread the mascara. You can use your mascara of choice these are just my favorites right now. 

Then you can finish off by applying your favorite lipstick or lip gloss. I chose this Revlon Violet frenzy because its smooth and soft and its fast and easy to apply of a rushed morning.

I hope this tutorial was helpful to you as it is to me. If you wish to buy any of the products I used in this  post or any previous ones check out the Shop section where you can buy these or see a clearer picture of the item through Amazon.com
