Always apply an eye primer to keep your shadows from moving around on the lid. They also make your shadows look more vibrant. This is the time that I apply brow mousse, you can also use brow gel to keep them in place. For extra staying power, I will also use a paint pot so my eye shadow and liner really don’t budge. Apply the taupe crease color, champagne lid color, and soft highlight. Use waterproof liquid eyeliner, curl the lashes, (and apply waterproof mascara.) I also added nude liner to my waterline to make my eyes appear more awake.

I apply a non-greasy SPF followed by a face primer. I actually mix the bronze primer with my tinted moisturizer that is too light for my face. I use a waterproof concealer on blemishes to prevent the unwanted slip n’ slide. I apply a face powder to set all the liquid makeup in place. Liquid foundation is too thick and uncomfortable in the heat. I now apply my peachy pink blush and bronzer.

As for lips, I opted for a matte color that is classic throughout the day, no matter what event.

This makeup lasted on me for back to back parties last Sunday! Even I was impressed with its staying power with zero touch ups.
