Five Minute Makeup Look with Mecca
Let’s prime. Primer acts as a base that you apply before your foundation. Not only does it create a barrier for your skin, preventing your makeup from clogging your pores but it also helps your makeup stay put and on all day. I apply about a 5 cent piece to the back of my hand (a little bit goes a long way) and then apply directly to my face with my foundation brush.
Foundation. I have been using Nars Sheer Glow Foundation for years. It a great base that you can easily build from low to full coverage. It gives you a great glow and the bottle lasts me for around 4 months! I apply about a 10 cent piece amount to the back on my hand and using the same foundation brush that you applied your primer with, gradually apply to the face. I also add just a little concealer to under my eyes.
I recenly started using the Nars Highlighting Blush – I am a sucker for anything that has a two-in-one feature. This particular Blush includes a light-reflecting highligher that looks amazing on the skin. Grab your blush brush and apply to the apples of your cheeks.
Optional Step Four
For this particular look – I want a serious glow going on. The Mecca Illuminating balm is new product I am trying. It’s super easy to use and a little bit goes a long way. I apply with my finger to all the points of my face where light usually hits – between the eyes, down the bridge of the nose just above the lip and in the middle of your chin.
I like a natural eye so I usually just apply a sweep of mascara and a tinted brow gel.
