Work Look 3: "Healthy Glow" Look

Happy Monday people of the world! :) I will start the week with my 3rd version of a work look. "Healthy Glow" look, no matter how gloomy the weather could be, it doesn't give us the reason to look gloomy! There's always ways for us to exude a healthy "glow" in us.

Hope you like this! And let's all start the week right :)

AMW Diagram

Step 1:
Prior to e/s application, apply your preferred e/s base. I am using Benefit's Lemon Aid. Using a flat shader brush, I pat on NYX's Yellow Marigold on the crease area going a bit beyond the crease.

Step 2:
On the same area you pat on the NYX's Yellow Marigold, pat on NYX's Chrome e/s in Gold using a patting motion to create shimmery lids everytime you blink.

Step 3:
Using any blending brush, apply Prestige's e/s in the 2nd color on photo or any "goldish" e/s tone on the outer v area to create depth. Re-apply if needed to reach desired shade.

Step 4:
Line the uppper and lower lashline with Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in Bourbon and use any eyelining brush to smudge the liner well.

Fill in your brows with your eyebrow powder/pencil
I am using P&J eyebrow pencil no. 2
Applied 2 coats of mascara using
Clinique's High Impact Mascara in Black

Here's how your work look no. 3 :)

How do I create overall healthy glow for the face?

For the face:
P&J Creamy Foundation no. 30
using foundation brush

Set my foundation with MAC's Select Sheer
in NC15

For the Cheeks:
Apply Stila Illuminating Bronzer
on the apples of cheeks

Eyeko 5-1 as highlighter
using Devi Blush Brush

For the Lips:
NYX Round Lipstick
in Herades

Curl your hair and smile!
You're living in a tropical island!
