And here goes my first Poppy post.

  • Apply lip balm on your lips.
  • Primed face using Stila's one step corrector. You can use your hands (gently massage the serum all-over your face), a foundation brush, or stila brush in #33.
  • Let it dry for a couple of secs (10s) then using a foundation brush, apply foundation on your face (i used Maybelline Aqua gel in True beige).
  • Concealer. You can use your fingers or a concealer brush. Apply concealer under your eyes, on the sides of your nose, any pimple/s or acne scar/s, and on the sides of your lips. Don't forget to BLEND. BLEND. BLEND. (I used Laura Mercier secret concealer in 03).
  • Groom and brush your brows upwards. Use a brow liner if you need to fill in your brows.
  • Using Laura Mercier's Invisible loose powder and a sponge, press powder on your face to seal (the deal) all previous products on your face. Dont forget your T-zone and areas where shine usually appears.
  • Get any light taupe eye shadow you have, preferably matte finish but satin is fine. Use your finger or a c-eyeshadow brush and fill your eye lids. Make sure you dont go beyond your crease (I used Estee Lauder quad eyeshadow in 02 Amber Honey).
  • Using a flat brush, an eyeshadow brush or your fingers; apply a satin finish light eyeshadow on your brow bone (I used Estee Lauder quad eyeshadow in 02 Amber Honey).
  • Apply mascarra on your lashes. You may curl, you may opt not to. I didn't :) (I used Max Factor Masterpiece Mascarra in Rich Black).
  • Using a blush brush, apply blush on the apples of your cheeks. Not much, you should look like you're naturally blushing (I used Fashion 21 in #4).
  • With ELF's lip stain in Birthday suit, color lips. Let it dry, you can count 1-15 then apply any spring color shade of lipstick that you have (I used Laura Mercier lipstick in Tangerine).
  • Powder face or repeat step 6: Using Laura Mercier's Invisible loose powder and a sponge, press powder on your face to seal (the deal) all previous products on your face. Dont forget your T-zone and areas where shine usually appears.

Now, it's your time to shine.

Love and Peace,
Pattieta aka Poppy
