Maskcara Before & After | 02

In my last Maskcara Makeover post, I mentioned that I did my sister’s makeup for a rehearsal dinner. Well, I did my mom’s makeup too for the wedding the next day. I thought I’d share!

Skin Type

Products Used:

Before I started applying any makeup, my mom used her Milk Moisturizer to make sure her skin was moisturized – this allows the makeup to sit evenly and not cling to any dry spots. After allowing the moisturizer to sink in, I sprayed Stay Spray on a IIID Perfector and dabbed it all overhear face. This way, I would ensure her makeup would last all throughout the wedding and the rehearsal dinner.

I then took my Detail HAC Brush and applied a small amount of Wheat Highlight to her eyelids. This acted as a base. Then, I used my IIID Perfector to set it with my Vanilla Dust Setting Powder – ensuring that her eyelids wouldn’t get oily. Right after, I put Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion all over the lid – this is the best eyeshadow primer I’ve used! It doesn’t allow any type of crashing and the shadows will stay all night!

When I’m doing an eyeshadow look, I always like to start with the eyes because I don’t want to get any fall out on the face. I used my I Shadow Everything Brush to apply Sabrina Eyeshadow all over the lid as a base. Then, I took Bright Eyes and applied it on top of Sabrina. For the crease, I used Trust and blended it out with the other side of the I Shadow Everything Brush. For the outer corner, I used Gilded and blended it out. She used Essence Eyeliner. For her lashes, she used Essence Mascara and for her eyebrows, she used NYX Tinted Brow Mascara

After I finished the eyes, I moved on to highlight. I applied her Wheat Highlight all over her face with the large end of my Detail HAC Brush and then stippled it in with a IIID Perfector. For contour, I used Indigo and applied it under her cheekbones, along her jawline, down the sides of her nose, and around her forehead and then blended it out with a IIID Perfector. For bronzer, I used this Tarte Contour & Highlight palette and applied the contour shade with a B Squared Bronzer and Blush Brush to where I placed the Indigo contour.

For blush, I used Nude and applied it with my Power Powder Brush. I blended it out with a IIID Perfector.

Since my mom has oily skin, I took my Vanilla Dust Setting Powder on my Power Powder Brush and dabbed it on the center of her forehead, under her eyes, on her chin, and along her jawline.

To add a little bit of glow, I applied Honey Illuminator down the center of her nose, on her cupid’s bow, and on her cheekbones. I then applied a touch of highlight from this Tarte Contour & Highlight palette on top of the illuminator.

To finish off her look, I sprayed a IIID Perfector with a little more Stay Spray and dabbed it lightly all over her face to be sure her makeup would last through the dancing of the reception party!
