How to achieve this look.
First grab your materials:
- Fresh, clean, hydrated face
- Alchemy Loose foundation
- Alchemy Eye shadow brush
- Alchemy Concealer
- Alchemy Eye shadow base
- Alchemy Eye shadow color
- Alchemy Eye Shadow highlight
- Alchemy Pressed bronzer
- Alchemy Blush
- Alchemy Lip Liner
- Alchemy Lip Gloss
Step one. Start with a clean, exfoliated and hydrated face. We have great some tips on how to get your skin glowing. Firstly buy yourself a quart sized water bottle that you can bring to work.
This will make you drink the water your body needs because it is there to remind you all day, "gulp gulp gulp"!
Then it all starts with a well exfoliated clean and hydrated face. No matter what skin type you have we highly recommend the Clarisonic brush. It is takes all of your makeup off and also removes dead skin cells. Your skin will look vibrant and younger in days!
Step 2: Using your Alchemy Mineral Concealer
, spot treat any blemishes, sun damage, or flaws on your facial skin. Remember, a little bit goes a long way here.
Step 3: Next, with either your Loose or Pressed Alchemy Mineral Foundation and your Alchemy Foundation deluxe brush
, go over your whole face and neck with a swirl like stroke until the surface of your skin is even and clear.
Step 4: Using your Deluxe brush apply some bronzer
into the crevice just under your cheek bones. Sweep the bronzer over your forehead and under your jaw line and down your neck. I also like to lightly go over the apples of your cheeks too to give you a glowy base.
Step 5: Using your deluxe brush again, apply Candy Tuft blush to the apples of your cheeks. Make sure to blends the edges.
Step 6: Fill in your eyebrows using Alchemy's brow powder
in your shade. Blondes and redheads we recommend Walnut, Brunettes and Darker hair we recommend Glenwood and Gray or silver hair we recommend Keystone .Apply with Alchemy's Angle shading brush for an easy application.
Using the Blending Brush, sweep Eye shadow base
evenly over your lids and up to your brow bone. This will brighten and conceal your eye area.
Step 7: Using the blending brush again, sweep Coney Island
highlight across your entire lid. This gives your eyes a pinky glow.
Step 8:Next we'll bring out the beautiful shape of your eye with Bluebell eye liner. Start by sharpening your eyeliner to create a perfect point, then line the upper lash base and wing out the liner a bit beyond the outer edge of your eye. Then, move the point to the inside corner and line the inside lash line. This will cause the lashes to appear thicker and longer. Now curl your lashes with your eyelash curler.
Step 9: Now apply your mascara by twisting the wand along its axis, lengthwise, at the base of the lashes. *Tip* To steady your hand, hold the wand at a right-angle with respect to the direction of your fingers. Also, zig-zagging the wand back and forth will help cut down on clumps!
Line your lips with a nice light pink liner such as Cosmos
lip liner. Apply a layer of Loveland
gloss on top.
