Glowy Glam for Slick Hair - My Style
On my greasy hair days, I always like to make sure that my hair's out of my face--which calls for my makeup to be as on point as ever.
Here's a makeup look that works fabulously for when your hair is pulled back and you'd like to highlight your gorgeous facial features and show how glowy you can be!
On that note, I should share with you that this look is all about shedding light on the inner corners of the eyes and using a highlighter to highlight the cheekbones and nose.
Let's break down the products so I can show you how you, too, can glow:
Avon Magix Tint: A tinted moisturizer that works well since it doesn't create as matte of a look as a strong, matte liquid foundation might. You want this because, again, we're going for a glowy look! I used the Sigma Kabuki brush to apply this.
MAC Studio Fix in NC 43.5: I tend to have extra oily skin, so I did have to slightly mattify with a teensy bit of powder. You can skip this if you don't have oily skin.
E.l.f. Cosmetics 16 Hr Camo Concealer: This one really helps brighten you up, and is almost necessary since this look skips the foundation. I used the Pixi by Petra Full Coverage Foundation Brush to apply this.
Glossier Haloscope: A highlighter that has become my favorite because it glides on so smoothly. This is what I used on my cheekbones, nose, and below and above my eyebrows. I used the SIGMA Tapered Highlighter Brush to apply this.
Surratt Artistique Blush in Rougeur: I just applied a very slight amount of this to give a little rose to the cheeks. This look is less about caking on color than it is about glowing in a natural way. I used the Surratt Artistique Brush to apply this.
Bobbi Brown Chocolate Lip Liner: We are all about accentuating features when the hair is back, so lining the lips with a color that's a bit darker than your lip color is important!
Lancome Le Monochromatique "A La Mode": A super shimmery shade of neutral brown that will get lightened up by...
Pixi x Chloe Morello Lip Icing: A super-light shade of shimmery pink for a feminine touch on the lips.
Smashbox ShapeMatters Palette: I used the "Vanilla" shade for the inner corners of my eyelids, and then used the shade "Blackout" for the outer corners. I also used the brow shade "Soft Brown" to fill in my brows. I used the fine brush that comes with the palette for the brows, and for the shadow, I used the Sigma Blending Brush.
YSL The Shock Mascara in Blue: I wanted to use this to test if an electric blue would fit well or else over-power the look, and in the end, I decided it would be best if I applied a second, more natural coat of...
Surratt Pointilliste Mascara: This helped me make my lashes a bit more black rather than blue, but the volume of my lashes still came mostly from the YSL Mascara.
Did you guys enjoy this look? If so, I would love to see how you glow!
