Now for the lesson
Starting with a fresh, clean and hydrated face and using your Alchemy Foundation blending brush, dab on you face primer to the areas of the face that have large pores and over any fine lines around the eyes. In an instant, your skin feels and looks smoother and resurfaced!
Using your Alchemy Mineral Concealer, spot treat any blemishes, sun damage, or flaws on your facial skin. Remember, a little bit goes a long way here.
Next, with either your Loose or Pressed Alchemy Mineral Foundation and your Alchemy Foundation brush, go over your whole face and neck with a swirl like stroke until the surface of your skin is even and clear.
Using the Blending Brush, sweep Eye shadow base evenly over your lids and up to your brow bone. This will brighten and conceal.
Now that you have a proper base applied to your face, we'll start on bringing out your features!
Choose a contour eyeshadow color (not a base) that appropriately brings out your features. With the Shadow Brush, apply the eyeshadow in the outer corner of your eyelid
With the Blending Brush again, sweep over the contour colored eye shadow, blending it up and outwards
Now clean your Blending Brush well and then select a Highlight eyeshadow. Dip the Blending Brush into the highlight, remove it and tap lightly to remove any excess mineral. Starting in the far corner of the eye, sweep the highlight towards the center of the lid, stopping no further than the center, just above the pupil. Now smooth any lines that may have formed, with the brush.
Next we'll bring out the beautiful shape of your eye with liner. Start by sharpening your eyeliner to create a perfect point, then line the upper lash base and wing out the liner a bit beyond the outer edge of your eye. Then, move the point to the inside corner and line the inside lash line. This will cause the lashes to appear thicker and longer.
Now apply your mascara by twisting the wand along its axis, lengthwise, at the base of the lashes. *Tip* To steady your hand, hold the wand at a right-angle with respect to the direction of your fingers. Also, zig-zagging the wand back and forth will help cut down on clumps!
With the eyes completed, proceed to contour the face while warming it up by applying the Face Bronzer. This is an important step as it fully defines your features and provides a healthy sun kissed glow.
Finally, line the lips with a nude lip liner. Heather Pink is one of our favourites!
