"I started using makeup because literally I felt i wasn't girly enough, then I went on to youtube and became one"


Before I start doing my makeup I have to have my face squeaky clean, either I wash my face with the Gentle Skin Cleanser from Cetaphil or at least use a makeup removing wipe.


Once my skin is clean and ready to take on a full face I start with a primer from Urban Decay, the  Complexion Primer it's my favorite since I can see my pores disappearing as I apply. Once it's absorbed and set on my skin I move on to the next step; foundation. Since it's everyday makeup I would go for light coverage, usually Mary Kay Time Wise foundation, it's my favorite for the every day.  For concealer since I do have quite dark under eye I go for Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, it really covers it all and lasts all day, and since I don't use a heavy coverage foundation, this will cancel out dark circles.

After foundation and concealer comes my eyebrow routine, I have thick yet sparse brows, so I just fill in the gaps in little strokes  with the Elf brow brown duo, so they look like little hairs, shape them a bit so they look on point.

For the eyes I really don't do much since I go for the every day look, I'll just curl my lashes (with a spoon, I can't do eyelash curler, it looks fake to me) some regular black liner and mascara from the vlogger Yuya, that's it.

I apply some blush from Kylie Cosmetics in Hopeless Romantic for a little coral-y red touch and then some highlight from Maybelline in Molten Gold with my tiny mermaid brush.
