You want to start every look with a good base, so I started with one of my favorite products, Mary Kay® CC Cream (color correcting cream). For this look you can even go a shade darker than your usual CC cream color, because it blends into your skin tone. You can put this all over your whole face (like foundation) to even out any blemishes - and to give your skin a boost. I love this product because it has SPF 15 in it and it gives you a sort of fresh look. I even use it under my eye makeup as a base. Next, I do my eye makeup. I used a light colored eye shadow across my whole eyelids. This gives your eye a touch of brightness and helps intensify the look. I then swept Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Driftwood in the creases of my eyes to create a smoky look. This shadow is great because the color is really versatile and the coverage is awesome - you only needed a little bit to get the full effect. I then used a dark brown liquid eyeliner, and two coats of Mary Kay® Lash Love Mascara in I Love Black.
When I'm finished, I spray my whole face with Mary Kay Finishing Spray by Skindinavia. It's like hair spray for your face! You just spray it on your face (eyes closed of course!) in an X motion- and it can help your makeup last for up to 16 hours. I really was impressed with this, because I am very active and I work out during the day. This really worked and kept my makeup on!
Another cool product I use during the day to keep my face fresh and shine free is Mary Kay® Beauty Blotters - Oil Absorbing Tissues. These things are like magic and keep away shine! They are super convenient and work really well!
