My Dewy Bronzed Foundation Tutorial

Monday, June 20, 2016

before_after_em_smith_summer_dewy_bronzed_natural_makeup_look_tan_skin_foundation_tutorial_5

Hello first day of summer!! I’m excited for today’s post sharing a foundation routine that I have been using lately. It’s more of a dewy, glowing-bronzed-skin look which is suitable for this season. First of all, I’ve been using Jergens Natural Glow tanning lotion  for a couple of months now. I love how it makes my skin look more tan for the summer in a natural looking way. If you haven’t used it, you should try it and let me know how it works out for you. Check out my my Jergens blog post HERE.

Here’s my step-by-step tutorial on how I achieve this dewy, bronzed skin look. This is after I have already applied eye make-up.

before_after_em_smith_summer_dewy_bronzed_natural_makeup_look_tan_skin_foundation_tutorial_8 After having sprayed my skin to freshen up, I used BECCA Cosmetics – Backlight Priming Filter all over my face. Whenever the light bounces off my skin, it gives it a radiant glow. It also has a shimmer to it, but isn’t glittery.

  1. I love to use Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream for this kind of weather. It feels soft and lightweight on my face. Plus, it’s totally natural looking which is the best way to have it for summer. I used my fingers to apply it, focusing on the areas which I outlined on the image above.
  2. I then used liquid concealer Bare Minerals Bareskin Concealer with medium to full coverage. I applied it under only the dark areas under my eyes, bridge of my nose, and a little bit on my upper lip.
  3. Using a powder brush and translucent powder, I tapped it off before applying this product so that I wouldn’t get too much on my skin. Doing this helps to avoid cakiness. I only focused on putting this powder under my eyes and little bit on my forehead. By doing this, it keeps my skin from having a matte finish and still look natural.
  4. To warm up my face, I used Rimmel Natural Bronzer and gently slid it on the side of my cheeks, around my forehead, sides of my nose, and around my jaw area.
  5. To start highlighting, I sprayed my brush with this product and used Hard Candy Bake Bronzer as my highlighter for my upper cheeks, bridge of my nose, center of my forehead and my upper lip. Make sure to blend it well.
  6. To make my skin look summer-ready, I love to use a golden bronzer. Using a big round brush, I slid it off to the sides of my forehead and sides of my cheeks.

Fresh Face and Glow! (+ SUMMER GIVEAWAY)

Sunday, May 15, 2016

em_smith_highlighting_tips_tutorial_evian_review_0 em_smith_highlighting_tips_tutorial_evian_review

When I started to do makeup in the Philippines way back 2009, I was introduced to Evian Facial Spray by my fellow makeup artists. They recommended it for my clients, especially for brides. It is well known for making your skin feel fresh, hydrated, and clean before applying makeup. When you’ve finished putting on makeup, you can also spray this on top of your entire face. This will help the makeup stay on longer throughout the day. If you feel your makeup is too powdery or cakey, you can grab your blender sponge and spray the Evian Facial Spray onto it. Then, gently pat down the areas on your face that you feel are powdery or heavy. Not only did I love to use this with my clients, but I loved bringing this with me to the beach, when I was still living in the Philippines. I would use it to help cool down my face under the heat of the sun.

Now that summer is coming, I’m excited to use my 1.7 fl oz travel-sized *Evian Facial Spray in. It is great for traveling since the packaging is leak-proof and TSA-friendly. The size is handy and perfect for my purse too. It also comes in other sizes, 5 oz and 10 oz. If you get the larger sized Evian Facial Spray, it is way cheaper and you can get more product for the price, compared to MAC’s Setting Spray. Evian comes in a canister and creates some fine micro mists when sprayed. This makes it more relaxing for your face when you spray it on. I’m also surprised that the Evian Facial Spray is a great, handy product for a mother like me. With a baby and toddler, I’m glad that it is safe to use for them too. Living in Texas weather, this is great and handy for freshening up my kids’ faces while walking outside and going to the park.

I would especially recommend that you bring this with you in hot weather, like during the summer season. Again, it is so easy to grab and spray on your face to freshen up and keep your face moisturized. With this spray, I can also create a natural highlighting effect for my face and shoulders, without it looking powdery.

em_smith_highlighting_tips_tutorial_evian_review_4

Try to spray the Evian for 2-3 seconds onto your brush, and swipe it off onto your highlighter powder. This technique will help your highlighter stand out even more and make your makeup stay on your skin longer.
em_smith_highlighting_tips_tutorial_evian_review_3

I love to apply highlighter on my upper cheeks, bridge of my nose, and upper lip.
em_smith_highlighting_tips_tutorial_evian_review_2

You can also try to apply it on your collarbone and shoulder so when the light bounces off your skin, it gives you a natural looking glow.

Soft Coral Makeup Tutorial (+ Mineral Makeup Discount Code)

Monday, April 11, 2016

soft_makeup_spring_summer_tutorial_trend_mineral_makeup_simple_natural_emsmith_1

I’ve recently been buying things from Etsy lately, and I found this shop that sells mineral makeup. If you have noticed, I haven’t used any mineral makeup for my blog posts or even on my freelance kit. The shop called Beneficial Minerals is owned by a woman named Kelli. She is based in Washington and created these products in her home studio.  As a first-time mineral makeup user, I was skeptical about its coverage and longevity. Surprisingly, it lasted longer throughout the day than I thought when I used it. The color also really showed up perfectly. I created this look for the fresh and blooming seasons of spring and summer.The steps are so simple and easy, that you should try it on for this kind of weather!

Also, keep scrolling down as I’m giving away a discount code to use when you shop for these mineral makeup products! :)

soft_makeup_spring_summer_tutorial_trend_mineral_makeup_simple_natural_emsmith_2 soft_makeup_spring_summer_tutorial_trend_mineral_makeup_simple_natural_emsmith_5

FACE

  1. Moisturize your skin using your favorite facial moisturizer.
  2. I first applied liquid concealer under my eyes, eyelids, around my nose and other areas that need to be evened out.
  3. Using a buffing brush, I buff the *mineral foundation from Beneficial Minerals all over my face and blend it well. I like to put the product on my palm, which I find easy to grab for more space.
  4. Using the same brush (but cleaned), I grab the *mineral makeup blush in Coral and apply it on the apple of my cheeks.
  5. The *Beneficial Minerals blush in Adobe, has a light shimmer in dark brown. So I thought to use this as a contour powder for the sides of my nose and cheeks.
  6. Apply a highlighter as well on the upper part of your cheeks, bridge of your nose (if needed), and upper lip.

EYES

  1. I fill up my brows and blur some harsh lines, using a soft brow pencil.
  2. I use a flat eyeshadow brush to start patting down the *mineral eyeshadow in Coral, and apply it on the entire eyelid. I like to buff off the brush to remove some product and start to buff off the harsh lines on the eyelids where I applied the eyeshadow.
  3. Try to use a natural (not white) eyeliner over your waterline to open up your eyes if you have a similar eye shape to mine.
  4. Curl and apply mascara to the upper and bottom part of your eyelashes. Instead of using one strip of false lashes, I opt to use individual ones since it’s more natural and flattering :-)
  5. Apply a thin line of eyeliner. I used liquid pen eyeliner for this look.
  6. Apply a tiny bit of darker eyeshadow from the lower, outer lashline onto the center. Then, blend the edges.

LIPS

  1. I apply a liquid creamy lipstick and if you want to see some examples, check them out here

Summer Tan Skin With JERGENS® Natural Glow!

Monday, April 4, 2016

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MyJergensGlow #CollectiveBias simple_summer_no_makeup_look_tan_skin_natural_glow_jergens_tutorial_emsmith_9
Tanned skin is something I always want to have during the summer. When I was in high school, I used to always sunbathe (I didn’t know how bad it was for your health!). Back in those days, I lived in the Philippines where beaches were so easy to access, so I’d lie on the beach under the heat of the sun. I’m just a fan of having tan skin! I think it’s attractive and looks healthy. However, now that I’m older, I’m afraid to expose my skin for too long under the sun. Sun exposure can can cause wrinkles, and have adverse effects like skin cancer. That’s why I’m so glad that I found out about JERGENS® Natural Glow products. They give your skin a natural tan without baking yourself under the sun. They’re a much better value and more effective compared to other high-end brands too! I also love that these products hydrate your skin, since they’re moisturizers as well. What a great combo! I grabbed some of their products at Walmart while doing some grocery shopping with my kids (High five for mommies who shop with little kids!).

By the way, you can save $3.00 on any 2 full size JERGENS® Natural Glow® Product (Offer excludes trial and travel sizes) when purchased together.  
simple_summer_no_makeup_look_tan_skin_natural_glow_jergens_tutorial_emsmith_5

I thought of creating another tutorial for a simple, natural makeup look, to enhance my glowing tan. simple_summer_no_makeup_look_tan_skin_natural_glow_jergens_tutorial_emsmith_1

Here’s how to create this look:

  1. Moisturize your lips with lip balm.
  2. Apply moisturizer all over your face and neck. I’ve been using JERGENS® Natural Glow® FACE Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20 (this product is for incidental sun only) for the past few days to give my skin a tanned look, and to get ready for the summer. I skip the application on the brow area.
  3. Apply your favorite foundation. I prefer liquid or any lightweight finish foundation as it gives a more natural look on the skin, I do this using my fingers to blend. You may also use a beauty blender to press it onto your skin, and to make sure there are no patches.
  4. Apply concealer. Again, I love to use a liquid type of concealer for a natural finish.
  5. Pat down the concealer using your fingers to make sure it is blended well.
  6. Use a brow brush to groom your eyebrows before applying any products to them.
  7. Apply makeup for your brows. I use an eyebrow pencil that creates small strokes. Opt for a soft brow look instead of over-do or very defined brows. Some women who have fuller brows or don’t need to apply makeup to them may skip this step, but don’t forget to brush the brows for grooming.
  8. Curl your lashes and apply your favorite mascara. TIP: If your mascara makes your lashes clumpy, dip the mascara container (lid closed) in a glass of warm water to soften up the dryness.
  9. Apply cream blush onto your cheeks by blending, using your fingers. Cream blushes stay longer and add a natural flash to your cheeks!
  10. Apply lip color. Opt for creamy texture (not too matte of a finish).
  11. Use bronzer (not a metallic or shimmery type) to warm up your face by applying it on side of the cheeks and forehead.
  12. Don’t forget to apply the bronzer on your neck too!
  13. TIP: Apply a little bit of bronzer under the eyes if you think your concealer is too light.

simple_summer_no_makeup_look_tan_skin_natural_glow_jergens_tutorial_emsmith_4 simple_summer_no_makeup_look_tan_skin_natural_glow_jergens_tutorial_emsmith_3

Of course if you want to have a facial tan, you’ll also need the rest of your body’s skin tone to match. I’m loving the finished outcome after using JERGENS® Natural Glow® Daily Moisturizer on my whole body. Before applying this product, I exfoliate my body using JERGENS® Natural Glow® Color Primer In-Shower Scrub while in the shower. This helps the glow moisturizer stay on the skin longer. It works well if you gradually apply it everyday. I got a noticeable tan in just 2 days. After 5 days I had even more of a tan! The more patient you are, the more tan you will get. 😉  I make sure that I pay attention to lessen applications on dry areas like my elbows and knees, and between my fingers and toes. After every application, I wash my hands with warm water and grab JERGENS®
scrub to make sure there aren’t any stains left on my palms. simple_summer_no_makeup_look_tan_skin_natural_glow_jergens_tutorial_emsmith_2

Have you already picked your skin tone from JERGENS® Natural Glow products? Mine is medium to tan :-)

Here are some of my old photos in the Philippines. See how beautiful my hometown is? You’ll fall in love!! Ahh I can’t wait to see you again! But I’m pretty sure I’ll have tanned skin whenever I go back because now, I can get a tan anytime I want!

Fresh Mom Look: Easy Steps to Cover Dark Circles

Monday, February 22, 2016

conceal_dark_undereyes_tutorial_soften_wrinkless_puffiness_eye_cream_OZ_naturals_fresh_mom_look_emsmith_5a

Recently, my youngest son, who just turned 8 months, has been sleeping through the night now. Yahoo!!! It was a very big help for me and my husband since we also have a toddler who will turn 2 next month. From all the sleep deprivation with my kids, all I really want is to sleep longer. If you are single, mom-to-be, or married with no kids, all I can say right now is that enjoy your sleep! Just sleep and sleep! 😉

Today’s post is about how to look fresh and feel fresh when you have those dark circles around your eyes. I thought dark circles are cool to have when you are in school since you will look studious, but I guess not anymore! Here are easy steps and tips for you to enjoy how to cover those tired eyes!

conceal_dark_undereyes_tutorial_soften_wrinkless_puffiness_eye_cream_OZ_naturals_fresh_mom_look_emsmith_1 1. Freshen up  

I used OZ Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel*  which is natural and cruelty-free. This eye gel comes in a small bottle but you don’t need to put much, only tiny bit of gel. I love to  massage the gel all over my under eyes and also to my outer corner of my eyes. Wait for few seconds to let the skin absorb the eye gel. 

conceal_dark_undereyes_tutorial_soften_wrinkless_puffiness_eye_cream_OZ_naturals_fresh_mom_look_emsmith_4 conceal_dark_undereyes_tutorial_soften_wrinkless_puffiness_eye_cream_OZ_naturals_fresh_mom_look_emsmith_3 conceal_dark_undereyes_tutorial_soften_wrinkless_puffiness_eye_cream_OZ_naturals_fresh_mom_look_emsmith_10

Although, I didn’t see the improvement of my dark circles, I can say that this Youth Eye Gel* helps to soften the lines I have around my lower lash line. I love the smell too! The eye gel is fast-absorbing which is important for me since I use it under makeup. The feeling is smooth and fresh. You can also use this product day and night.

conceal_dark_undereyes_tutorial_soften_wrinkless_puffiness_eye_cream_OZ_naturals_fresh_mom_look_emsmith_11

2) Correct it

Corrector helps to neutralize the darkness of under eyes. It brightens the area before applying the concealer. It makes a big difference to use the corrector especially if you have discoloration under your eyes. I used an orange tone corrector by using a brush and apply all areas of darkness, after that I pressed the corrector  with my finger into my skin. If you don’t have one, you can try to use any cream orange eyeshadow as long as it is matte finish. If you have deep dark skin tone, you may try red tone corrector. You may also try to use darker shade of liquid or cream type of foundation to neutralize your dark circles before applying the concealer. Make sure you blend it well.

conceal_dark_undereyes_tutorial_soften_wrinkless_puffiness_eye_cream_OZ_naturals_fresh_mom_look_emsmith_6

3) Lighten up

Clean the same brush and use concealer that is 1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone or foundation. Apply on the same area where you put the corrector. Use your fingers afterwards to pat down and to gently warm up the concealer into your skin, this also helps to avoid crease and cakey under eyes.

4) Set it!

By using a loose powder, I set the concealer by dusting some powder. Use only enough powder you need. If your skin is dry, use less powder.

conceal_dark_undereyes_tutorial_soften_wrinkless_puffiness_eye_cream_OZ_naturals_fresh_mom_look_emsmith_5 conceal_dark_undereyes_tutorial_soften_wrinkless_puffiness_eye_cream_OZ_naturals_fresh_mom_look_emsmith_2

Doing these steps will help you look fresh and less tired! The makeup is also long-wearing especially when I have an eye gel to act as a base and help the makeup to have a smooth skin finish.

Have a great week mommies!! :)

Blue eyeshadow is one of my favorite colors, I always love to grab this tone to create a dramatic look without making it too colorful.

Classic Red Lips and Easy Eye Makeup (No Eyeshadow)

Thursday, February 11, 2016

classic_red_lips_easy_eye_makeup_winged_eyeliner_matte_foundation_valentines_look_5

If you are a red lip lover, this look is perfect for you! Since I used red lip color, I matched it with a simple winged eyeliner and didn’t use any eyeshadow. What did I use? My contouring and highlighting palette from Lorac. What I love about this look is that it is classy and perfect for this weekend – Valentine’s day! The eye makeup is just easy to do, you just need to make sure that the entire eyelids are matte by patting down some pressed or loose powder. Also, whether you want a long or short winged eyeliner, it’s up to you! I also wore false lashes for this look since you can’t barely see my real lashes in the photo.

classic_red_lips_easy_eye_makeup_winged_eyeliner_matte_foundation_valentines_look_2 classic_red_lips_easy_eye_makeup_winged_eyeliner_matte_foundation_valentines_look_4

For this look:

  1. I used a matte finish foundation and applied it all over my face (including the eyelids and lips) to even out my skintone.
  2. I grabbed my small angle brush and used MAC Dipbrow to fill up my eyebrows and brow gel to set it.
  3. I pat down some pressed powder on my entire eyelid and used my blending brush to contour my outer crease using the Lorac contour palette.
  4. For the winged eyeliner, I decided to use my liquid pen eyeliner and curled my lashes and then mascara for upper and lower lashes. I also used my favorite natural false lashes – Ardell!
  5. By using a pencil eyeliner in natural color (not in the photo, ooops), I applied it on my waterline to open up my eyes.
  6. I used the medium contour powder (from Lorac palette) to darken my lower lash line and used the shimmer highlighter on my tear duct.
  7. I used MAC powder blush in stubborn for the cheeks and did some contouring on the side of my cheeks and nose.
  8. Lastly, I used MAC Lipmix in red for my lip color. By the way, this is a very long-wearing/ smudge-proof lipstick!

classic_red_lips_easy_eye_makeup_winged_eyeliner_matte_foundation_valentines_look_3 classic_red_lips_easy_eye_makeup_winged_eyeliner_matte_foundation_valentines_look_1 Happy Valentine’s Day! :)

Simple Romantic Look

Monday, February 1, 2016

valentines_day_look_pretty_pink_natural_makeup_clinique_pacificabeauty_tutorial_beauty-8

I was trying to put out some of my maternity clothes last week and I saw this old rose dress which I wore in a wedding when I had my baby bump around 13 weeks. I can’t believe that within 2 years we are surrounded by 2 handsome little boys that makes me and my husband’s lives crazy yet beautiful and exciting! As a stay-home-mom with my 2 little ones is like a rollercoaster ride, sometimes you are in high peak of different emotions and sometimes everything is just slow and cool. But as my husband always reminds me, babies will not be forever; they will grow up and go to school and Brent and I will have more time together. I think God uses my children to teach us to be more patient and be thankful of life that He offers to us. 

valentines_day_look_pretty_pink_natural_makeup_clinique_pacificabeauty_tutorial_beauty_baby_bump_first_pregnancy_13_weeks_dress_maternity_clothes

 


Here are the products that I used and easy steps on how I created this Simple Romantic look for Valentine’s day. I thought to create a simple romantic look for Valentine’s day using some of the new products I got on December. Since it’s winter, I skip bright pink (I save that for Spring and summer) and opt to natural pinkish look. I also only used a sheer foundation so my skin will glow. Less is more :)

valentines_day_look_pretty_pink_natural_makeup_clinique_pacificabeauty_tutorial_beauty-9

  1. Moisturize your face except the eyelids. Apply your favorite foundation, I used this sheer liquid foundation from Pacifica Beauty.
  2. Apply the concealer only on dark areas of your under eyes, around the nose to cover up some redness if there’s any and a little bit on the eyelids as the base of the eyeshadow.
  3. Gently pat down some pressed powder using big round brush all over your face.
  4. Using these eyeshadow colors, I used the deep brown color to fill up my eyebrows using small angle brush and used the light shimmer over the brow bone. Apply the lighter brown matte eyeshadow using blending brush over the crease back and forth. Go back and use the deep brown matte eyeshadow to pat down all over the eyelid using flat brush and some over the lower lash line. For the upper lash line, line with a gel black eyeliner using small pointed brush. Follow your natural eye shape.
  5. To finish the eye makeup look, use a white shimmer on the tear duct to open up your eyes and to add a romantic look. If you prefer, use false lashes for this look but of course, mascara is fine as well.
  6. Apply your favorite natural pinkish lipstick, I used Clinique in Matte Beauty all over my lips. I applied it in 2 coats.
  7. Apply your prefered blush, I used MAC blush powder in Peachykeen and used the same big round brush to apply it over the apple of the cheeks.
  8. To finish this look, I used this sheer highlighter from Pacifica Beauty, I used the lighter one over my nose bridge, upper lips, upper cheeks and on my chin.

For contouring (which is optional), check my step-by-step tutorial here

valentines_day_look_pretty_pink_natural_makeup_clinique_pacificabeauty_tutorial_beauty-4a

I am loving this foundation that I received from Pacifica Beauty a couple of months ago. This is my on-the-go foundation for a busy mama like me. It has very sheer finish and I love to use my fingers and apply it on my face. It is a liquid foundation and lightweight. Did I mention that their products are Vegan and cruelty-free?

valentines_day_look_pretty_pink_natural_makeup_clinique_pacificabeauty_tutorial_beauty-3

I got this from my mother-in-law, it comes with other makeup and beauty stuff from Clinique. As you know, I am a fan of matte lip finish and this is perfect for me! The name of the lipstick is perfect too “Matte Beauty”. The texture is so comfortable to my lips and it doesn’t make my lips dry even it’s matte. This is perfect color for those who want to wear something pink yet natural for Valentine’s day.
