Leyna's Beauty Blog & Makeup Tutorial
I cannot account for different skin types since everyone's body chemistry is different. This tutorial is based on how I take care of my combination skin.
Being a busy working woman, I personally do not have time to touch up on my makeup during the day.
Over the years, I have tried different products and routines. I can finally say that I have found what works best for being on-the-go.
Taking care of my skin first makes a difference as to how my makeup stays flawless.
Wash face with SKINFOOD Egg White Perfect Pores daily.
I was introduced to the SKINFOOD line back in 2016 from a Christmas gift. Curious about the natural ingredients listed, I looked into the this product's line to see what else they have to offer and bought this cleanser. This has been my go-to ever since. I love how clean and refreshing my face feels after I wash it.
Apply SKINFOOD Gold Caviar Toner and then moisturize with SKINFOOD Gold Caviar Serum.
I have seen mixed reviews for this toner especially from the ones who also have combination skin, but this toner still seems to work well for me because it is dense and moisturizing.
I was happy to have stumbled upon the serum while waiting for my flight in South Korea in 2017. This serum is lightweight and completely absorbs into my skin. It does not leave any residue compared to other serums or moisturizers I have used in the past.
This serum is expensive but definitely worth it. One whole bottle has lasted me over 4 months.
Exfoliate lips by brushing off dry skin from lips gently with warm water. Do not peel!
Taking the nude look onto the next level
V. Lips: My lips are always dry even though I stay hydrated. For my nude lips look:
Apply lip liner (Buxom Dolly) to outer lip lining
Apply a little bit of Carmex to pouts
Go over with Tarte Low Key or Bestie (these 2 matte colors are very natural yet gives pouts some definition)
III. Countour: Tarte Palette I
Use the darkest shade on both sides of the nose bridge, hairline above the forehead, jawlines, lower cheekbones
Blend medium and light shade to the same areas
Blush the cheek apples
Highlight upper cheekbones and under eyebrows
VI. Eyebrows: Tony Moly so far has been the best product that stays put, yet is easy to wash off with cleanser
Use an eyebrow brush to shape/remove excess from eyebrows
IV. Eyes: Apply Mally eyeshadow Stick in Timeless Taupe over lids. You have 45 seconds to play with it before it sets, but it literally takes me 2 seconds to apply and have no need to fix since it's easy to use
- Use a small brush to apply Maybelline gel shadow over the crease of eyelids
- Apply Physician's Formula brown eyeliner pencil
- For an eye-brightening look, apply Maybelline Lasting Drama Light Liner in Starlight to inner corner of the eyes, blending to upwards
