Foundation Routine
Loreal True Match Foundation
Body Shop Primer
As always, prime the face first before applying foundation.
Recently, I am starting to apply corrector before putting the concealer. I find it very effective in hiding my dark under eye circles.

I’m using this black eyeshadow with just a bit of shimmer.
What I did was I damp the eyeshadow brush with lotion or you can also do with water but I like the consistency of the lotion.

To prevent the black eyeshadow to fall on my under eyes, I used tissue and put it below my lower lash lines.

To clean under eyes for any eyeshadow fall out you can use foundation brush or fan brush.

Then soften it with a brow wand.

I added shimmery eyeshadow from Maybelline Hyper Diamonds on the inner V of my eyes and extending it towards the middle of lower lash lines.

Apply liquid eyeliner. I am using Revlon colorstay liquid eye pen. If you are a beginner or if you don’t like liquid eyeliner then liquid pen is the way to go. It’s easier to apply than regular liquid eyeliner.

Using the eyeshadow brush, glide the remaining black eyeshadow in the lower lash lines. I didn’t put a lot because I have dark under eye circles so I was a bit cautious.

When applying mascara, start from the bottom lashes and wiggle the wand in an upward motion. Apply 2-3 coats.
