This post begins in the dorm room and goes out onto the streets of New York City.
Okay! Using the same hair that I used in my previous beauty post (here), I decided to reinstall the hair into another bob (making it around my sixth and final install of three bundles of Brazilian Body Wave hair that I originally got from True Glory Hair in Lithonia, Georgia). Being that my previous bob was a blunt cut, I knew that I would be able to cut the hair into a shorter bob, one that could be shorter in the back and longer in the front. Installing the hair only took me a little over two hours, but cutting the hair into my desired style took FORRREEEVVVVEEEEEER only because I am such a perfectionist when it comes to my hair! In addition, the edge control that I used was from Cream of Nature.
Just so ya’know (ONCE AGAINNN), all of my makeup in this photo came from a local beauty supply store (except for my foundation, which came from MAC and was $27 and my shimmer highlight that came from Becca Cosmetics at Sephora and was expensivveeee lol about $40).
My application routine on this day went in this order: foundation, eyebrows using a brown eyebrow pencil, concealing under my eyes and on the bridge of my nose with L.A. Girl Warm Honey Pro Concealer, baking where ever my concealer was applied (remember! which was underneath my eyes and the bridge of my nose… don’t lose me now!) with L.A. Girl Translucent Pro Powder, contouring my cheek bones and the side of my nose right outside of the bridge of my nose with L.A. Girl Coffee Pro Concealer while continuing to bake, excess powder removal as soon as I finished my contouring routine (be careful not to leave the baking powder on your face for too long, 5 minutes max! unless you want to look ghostly), highlighting my cheeks, the bridge of my nose, and my eyebrow arch, then applying a black eyeliner pencil and mascara, and lastly applying a NARS matte lip pencil, the same lip pencil that was used (here)!
I know this all may sound like a lot of work but once you get the hang of the routine, this particular makeup application process will only take you about 30 minutes at the most! It usually takes me about 20-25 minutes to complete this full natural makeup look!
