When my friend Staci was in town a few weeks ago, we decided we should do a vlog together about make-up since she has a YouTube make-up channel. Our plans were to do three vlogs (which we mention in the video) but we only ended up doing one. We'll probably do these again when we see each other. She lives in a different state but we try to get together as often as possible. So here we go... our "go to" faces! Make sure to go visit Staci's channel and give her some love!
Here are photos and links of what I use. Please excuse the state of my brushes. They are in dire need of a good cleaning.
Face Soap: Clinique Liquid Facial Soap mild
Moisturizer: Clinique dramatically different Moisturizing Lotion or Clinique Moisture Surge
Blemish Treatment: e.l.f. Zit Zapper
Skin Primer: Arbonne Makeup Primer
Eye Primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion the original formula
Lip Primer: MAC Prep & Prime Lip
Foundation: Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer - I use Shade 1
Setting Powder: e.l.f. High Definition Powder
Concealer: MAC select cover-up in NW15
Foundation brush was from coastal scents but they don't have the pink brushes anymore. :(
Contour Color: MAC Sculpting Powder in Bone Beige (this is only available at MAC Pro Stores)
Blush: MAC powder blush in Peaches
Highlight: A Pixi blush/highlight duo I got on clearance at Target.
Brushes: Top is used for contour. It's a Master's Touch paint brush #430 Round Mop from Hobby Lobby.
Middle is for blush. It's a duo-fiber from coastal scents.
Bottom is what I use for highlights. It's a 1" Loew-Cornell Maxine's Mop #270
Eye-shadows: MAC Eyeshadows in Brule, Retrospeck (the top two in the quad), Cork, and Naked Lunch.
Eyeliner: MAC Pro Creme Liner in Black (only available at MAC Pro Stores) or Almay liquid Eyeliner in black (love this one! I have used it for years)
Brows: MAC Eye Brows in Lingering
Mascara: MAC Opulash
Brushes from top to bottom:
Blending Brush - another discontinued pink coastal scents brush
Brush for highlight color - Loew-Cornell 1/2" Maxine's Mop
Brush for Lid Color and usually crease - Lowe-Cornell 3/8" Maxine's Mop
Pencil brush for small details and sometimes crease - MAC 219 Angle brush for eyeliner when I use the MAC eyeliner - MAC 263
During the day I wear something sheer. It's usually the Clinique Almost Lipstick in black honey, but I'm almost out and have to use a brush with it so I've been carrying the Tarte lipsurgence lip tint in Moody with me. It's pretty much the same color as black honey.
For night I always wear red. I have a ton of red lipsticks but MAC Ruby Woo is my favorite because it is soo matte it doesn't budge. I even wore it in my wedding. I always wear it over the MAC lip pencil in Spice to tone it down a notch and make it more natural looking.
Now remember this is my "go to" face, so I do it all the time and it only takes me about 10 minutes to do it all. If I'm in a hurry I just do the tinted moisturizer, mascara, blush, and lipstick.
Goodness that's a lot of linking! I hope you all enjoyed this. It was fun for me since the blog is usually about crafts and I'm a big lover of make-up.
