Day cream and a primer

Start by applying a day cream and a primer. This is the basis for a fantastic makeup look. With a moisturizing day cream such as the Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre you ensure that your skin feels soft. This day cream contains a unique formula that retains moisture and absorbs excess sebum. Your skin will glow for the rest of the day. Add another primer to this to create the perfect base.


Applying foundation

The next step in your routine is to apply foundation . It is wise to choose a foundation that has good coverage, but not too thick. If the coverage is too thick, it can look very unnatural. The NYX Cosmetics Can't Stop Won't Stop 24-Hour Foundation is a waterproof foundation that provides perfect coverage for 24 hours. This foundation is super easy to blend into an even and flawless end result. This foundation is suitable for normal, oily, combination and sensitive skin.

Applying concealer

Now apply your concealer to lighten up certain areas of your face and smooth out stubborn blemishes. You can use concealer under your eyes, on the bridge of your nose, and on your chin. The LA Girl HD Pro Concealer is a cream-based concealer and comes in a tube with a brush at the end to apply the concealer evenly and precisely. When you use a color corrector against, for example, bags or dark circles, it is wise to apply it under your foundation.


Time for... bronzer!

Now add a bronzer to your look that will heat your face. By subtly applying the bronzer under your cheekbones and on the sides of your forehead. By applying the bronzer to the sides of your nose, you make your nose look a lot smaller. When you have hard lines, it is important to blend them well with a brush. With the Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer Ticket to Brazil you ensure a natural sun-kissed glow. This intense, soft powder is super easy to apply due to its unique texture with gel. This bronzer is semi-opaque and buildable, so you can determine the desired intensity yourself. The lightweight formula is richly pigmented, ultra blendable, long lasting and provides a radiant finish to your look!


Highlighter for a glow

The next step is your highlighter for a glowy and shiny base. There are liquid and powder highlighters. For the most natural result, it is best to opt for a liquid highlighter . Apply the highlighter to your cheekbones, browbone, cupid's bow and the top of your nose bridge. The Balm Mary Lou Manizer is a highlighter, blush and eyeshadow in one: a real winner.


Blush gives your face color

By applying a blush in a soft pink color you create the most natural make-up look. The Milani Baked Blush Corallina 08 is a silky soft blush. This blush is fantastically pigmented and easy to use. You use it by picking up some color with your brush and tapping off the excess product. Then apply the blush lightly to the apples of your cheeks.


Accentuate your face with an eyeshadow

Now that the base for your makeup look is complete, you can start on your eye look. By using an eyeshadow you accentuate your face. When you first apply eyeshadow, it is wise not to immediately choose a darker color, to avoid a panda look.


Use a brown eyeliner

After you have applied eyeshadow, you can choose to go along your waterline with a brown eye pencil. It is best to opt for a brown eyeliner because this color looks more natural and is softer than when you use black.


Mascara for big and beautiful eyelashes

Before applying your favorite mascara . It is best to curl your eyelashes first with an eyelash curler. With the Boozyshop Eyelash Curler you can easily give your lashes the perfect curl to make them look longer.


Great eyebrow look

The next step in your routine is your eyebrows . Anastasia, the founder of ABH, specializes in eyebrows. She's been doing eyebrows all over Beverly Hills and beyond for years. The ABH Dipbrow Pomade is an intensely pigmented eyebrow pomade with which you can create fuller-looking, natural-looking eyebrows. You can apply this product very easily with the Brush 12 and the spoolie. Note that you only need to use very little of the product at a time.


Lipstick with a lip liner

The very last step in your routine is the lipstick with a lip liner. This puts the accent on your lips. There are many different colors available. Do you fancy a pop of color, or do you prefer something less striking?
