The most frequented question, that I am being asked is: “What product do you use for…?” So I decided to write down a full list of products, that I haved applied on the girls from Miss Face Czech Republic.
I have done the makeup for semifinalists and finalists and with their approval, I took their photo without and with my makeup. The contestants were supposed to have an identical makeup: Smokey eyes, creamy lips and contouring of the face. So with just a few exceptions I was applying the same products, only different shades.
We started later in the afternoon, so all the girls have done their usual morning routine and used a daily moisturizer. I cleaned their face with micellar water and sprayed it with Fix+ from MAC. Unless the skin is dry or dehydrated, I do not use moisturizer or serum, I start directly with makeup base. For oily skin I like YSL Matt Touche, for dry skin, or dry parts I use Sisley Radiant Immediate Lift.
I start my contouring with choosing two shades of liquid foundation, right now I am using Skin foundation from Bobbi Brown. I apply dark shade on contours, light one on parts, where I want the highlight. I will blend both shades and then add the brightening concealer Helena Rubinstein Magic Concealer, which I apply under the eyes as well. It has a creamy texture and does not sink immediately into the skin, so I can blend it properly.
I will enhance my contouring again with two shades of powder: light shade for highlighting, dark one for contouring. I really love Chanel powders, Vitalumière or Natural Finish Loose Powder.
At last I enhanced my contouring and highlighting with matt and shiny shades from Anastasia Beverly Hills Contouring Book. On cheeks I applied just a little peachy Blush from Chanel.
If I need to create the eyebrow in places, where it does not grow I always use some sticky product first. I like pencils Le Crayon Poudre from Lancôme or sticky shade from Brow Zings palette from Benefit. Than I apply eyebrow powders from Anastasia Beverly Hills. For shaping the eyebrow hair I use small mascaras Gimme Brow from Benefit.
Eyes and Lips
To prevent the eyeshadow from creasing I always apply some eyeshadow base. I use MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot all over the eyelid. If I want to enhance the eyes more I apply dark and light Eyeliner Gel from Makeup Atelier Paris and with blend them together. I am using combination of eyeshadows from MAC, Make Up For Ever and Too Faced. From mascaras I like Hypnôse from Lancôme. For lips I used lip pencil in colour of the lips, I draw the shape of the lips and shade them.
From lipsticks I love YSL Rouge Volupté, cheaper version of it is a creamy lipstick from Inglot, which I like to use for photoshoots.
I took all the photos with my mobile phone, sometimes it was a bit cloudy, so the makeup was a little more “radiant” in reality.
I am preparing an article, where I want to describe my signature makeup, what products are my favourite and why I use them 🙂 Please write down in the comments what would you like to know and I will focus my article on it.
Have a nice day,
