My Snapchat Takeover with @MakeupforWOC!

IMG_5098

The DM that started it all.

A few days ago, I was granted the opportunity to do a snapchat takeover for @MakeupForWOC. This was my first ever snapchat takeover! I was very nervous and excited, all at once. I didn’t know what look I was going to do. I wanted to do something smokey, but not too much. Something time efficient and radiant.

I went with an olive green smokey eye with nice grungy red lip color. Although I couldn’t find the name of the actual palette that I used for the green shimmer, here’s a list of the rest of products I used to achieve this look:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow | This is a very well known product in the beauty community. I used this for my brows in dark brown. You only need a little of this for your brows and it lasts sooo long. You can get this at Sephora and Ulta Beauty as well for $18.

LA Girl Pro Conceal | I used the color fawn. This is also a very well known product in the beauty community. I used this to carve out my brows and set my eyelids for eyeshadow! The price of this product varies, but its mostly around $4-$5 and you can get it roughly anywhere! (Walgreens, Ulta Beauty, Target, etc.)

Ben Nye Luxury Powder | Now I know I used this product way too much, but its just THAT good. If you are a women of color, you need to use a setting powder with a tint. Ben Nye has a variety of shades! I bought mine from Amazon but Im sure you can find it at other retailers.Screen Shot 2018-05-23 at 4.30.08 PM

 

 

Bobbi Brown Long-wear EvenFinish SPF 15 Foundation | PERFECT for the summer — this foundation has sunscreen! I used this in my shade golden almond (not shown here) and it smears and blends into the skin so perfectly. You can get this at Sephora or Ulta Beauty for around $38.

Laura Mercier Face Illuminator | I love love love this stuff. The shimmer is amazing and you don’t need to put on much to shine. Costing around $44, you can find this highlighter at Sephora.
