Fresh Skin & A Bold Lip

No matter the time of year, fresh dewy skin will always be on trend. To liven up the look and give it a fresh Fall vibe, we added a bold red lip. Day or night, this timeless look is sure to turn heads and leave you feeling ultra confident and gorgeous.


To keep skin ultra fresh and dewy, we're using the Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation for this look. This medium coverage foundation leaves a beautiful satin finish and evens out skin tone, while letting skin still look like skin. The secret to applying this foundation? Skin prep! After cleansing, apply a facial oil to the skin and immediately go in with your foundation. Using a flat foundation brush like the Kjaer Weis Foundation/Blush Brush, apply the Cream Foundation starting at the center of the face and blending outwards. This ensures an even coverage and seamless blend.


Next, dot the Fitglow Conceal+ applicator under eyes, around nose and on any blemishes or areas you want to brighten or conceal. Blend with the flat foundation brush or fingertips.


Using the Kjaer Weis Powder Brush, apply the ILIA Nightlite Novelty Bronzing Powder around the face in a sweeping “3” motion. Apply across the forehead, down the temples, under cheekbones, and finally down along the jawline to warm up the complexion. Use a smaller brush like the ILIA Blending Brush to also apply the bronzer in a sweeping motion across the eyelids to add natural definition.


Using the Vapour Multi-Stick in Eros, apply the stick directly onto the apples of the cheeks and blend with fingers. Follow by dotting the RMS Living Luminizer with fingers above the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, and on browbones, cupid's bow and inner corners of the eye for a dewy, luminous finish.


Next, using the Vapour Powder Brush, set your complexion by dusting a light layer of RMS “Un” Powder over your face, focusing on your T-zone to control shine and under the eyes to minimize creasing.


Using the Kosas Brow Pop Dual-Action Pencil, use the spoolie brush the first comb the brows into place. Follow the natural hair pattern with the pencil to fill in any sparse areas and build the brows. Follow with one last sweep of the spoolie to blend the color and groom hairs in place.


Finish off your eyes with a few swipes of mascara. We used the ILIA Fullest Volumizing Mascara for its volumizing formula that leaves lashes super soft and fluffy.


Last but not least, the lips! Start by lining lips with the Jane Iredale Lip Pencil to define and help the color stay. Finish by filling in the lips by swiping on the Vapour High Voltage Lipstick in Bold. To keep lines crisp and prevent color bleeding, use a flat concealer brush or Angle Brush to draw along the lip line to clean up any excess color.
