Everyday Face feat. the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit
I’ve used my ALE palette everyday (that I’ve worn make up) since I got it about a month ago. I’ve found that I can use the powders for nearly everything I need for a quick, glowy, everyday look that will look nice even when I’m sweatily strapping people into bikinis for eight hours (that’s my job, I don’t do it for fun).
Want to know how I get a ten minute face with as few products as possible? Keep scrolling, mate!
First, the face: We want glowy and bronzy, not oily, so we start off by prepping the skin with L’Oreal Infallible Matte Primer. (Tip: I read that swiping a silicone-based primer will yield better results than patting, etc.) Next, we’ll blend in some foundation, I use my HG drugstore foundation, L’Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation. Then concealer, in places where one needs to conceal. For zits and other evil skin lurkers, I use Maybelline Fit Me, and under the eyes I mix Fit me with Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer.
Next comes the fun part. Are you ready to look like a glowing angel goddess? Lezdothis. First, I swipe Dim Light all over the skin to set, then Diffused Light to set the under eyes and keep them nice and bright. Then, I go crazy with Luminous Bronze Light, since it’s so build-able, I just slap that shit all over because I enjoy looking bronzed. I like to use either of the blushes depending on how I’m feeling that day. Mood Exposure is a great goes-with-any-look shade and looks very natural, while Luminous Flush definitely adds a bright pop of color to the cheeks. Finally, I dust the Iridescent Strobe Light on my cheekbones, above the brows, bridge of the nose, and cupids bow. I find that tapping off some of the excess on my hand before I apply helps to give a glowy effect rather than a glittery one.
Next are the eyes: To keep it simple, I literally just rub my finger in the bronzer and then pat it onto my eyelid and into the crease a bit. Sometimes I’ll put Diffused and Iridescent Light into the inner corners. That’s all. For lashes, I’ve been loving the Revlon Ultimate All-In-One mascara, and I’ll swipe some L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper through the brows to tame and shape them.
We’re almost done! Lips: Put whatever you want on your lips, since this look goes with pretty much anything. I’ve been loving Charlotte Tilbury’s Amazing Grace lipstick for a pop of pink.
Too easy, right? Do you have any genius all-in-one products that you reach for every day? Let me know in the comments!
