“There is no royal flower-strewn path to success. And if there is, I have not found it for I have accomplished anything in life it is because I have been willing to work hard.” _Madam CJ Walker
I get asked a lot watch I have on makeup I’m wearing. I often response with “Girl a whole lot.” I’m going to share in this post the what I’m wearing question.
I begin by spraying my face with Mario Badescu facial spray with aloe, herbs and rosewater. I use this to wake my skin up. I apply M.A.C. prep + prime moisture infusion serum and 24 hour comfort cream to moisturize. I then do my eyebrows.

⚡️I am not a MUA⚡️ With that being said I got a few DMs asking about how I do my eyebrows. I use a @wetnwildbeauty (simma brown now) pencil to shape them. The bottom brow is cleaned up with @lagirlcosmetics (fawn) pro conceal. The top brow is cleaned up with @lagirlcosmetics (toast) pro conceal. Tool used @elfcosmetics flathead brush. Set with @lauramercier (MEDIUM DEEP) translucent power. If you want a licensed professional makeup artist approach to eyebrows ask @iraeisastylist. ⚡️click link in bio for full review⚡️ https://thefatgirloffashion.com/2017/02/21/laura-mercier-translucent-in-medium-deep-reviewed/ #beautyblogger #brownbeauty #BBBlogger
I use a Wet N Wild color icon kohl eyeliner in simma brown now (603A) to shape my eyebrows. I use shade lighter than my skin tone to clean up and highlight the bottom of my eyebrow. The one I use is L.A.Girl Pro conceal in a color fawn. For the top of the eyebrow I use a color that more closely matches my skin tone. I use L.A.Girl Pro conceal in the color toast. I used e.l.f. eyeliner brush for the top and bottom eyebrow clean up.
I correct my dark spots with L.A.Girl Pro conceal in the color orange. I then apply foundation. I use L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous in the color nut brown cocoa (C7-8). Followed up with M.A.C. Pro longwear concealer in shade NC50. I use the Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge to apply the longwear concealer in the same places I applied the orange color corrected.
Because I love a matte look I set my face with Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder in medium deep.
After setting my face I then highlight and contour. I use is L.A.Girl Pro conceal in a color fawn. to highlight applied with a damp Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge. The highlight is set with a mix of Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder in medium deep and natural finish applied with a damp Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge. I then layer three products to contour. The darkest shade from e.l.f. cream contour palette, Black Radiance press power in rich mahogany and M.A.C. cosmetics blush in the color sketch.
I then focus on the eyes. For eyeliner I use either blacktrack by M.A.C., tattoo liner by Kat Von D or Marc Jacobs Beauty gel eye crayon liner. Recently I’ve been obsessed with lashes. Mainly bottom lashes. I’ve been using a combination of 5 mascaras at once to get my eyelash look. I use mainly Smoky Extravagant Mascara, Revlon ultimate all-in-one mascara and They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara and whatever mascaras that are in arms reach. When going to events I add a lash strip to the top lash.
Highlighting is currently the hotness makeup application around. I am in love with Make Up For Ever’s Pro Light Fusion Highlighter in color golden pink. When I tell you it takes me to my happy place, It does! I also use M.A.C. mineralize skinfinish in the color gold deposit, La Bronze or NARS highlighting blush powder in the color albatross. Lastly I spray my whole face with prep + prime fix+ by M.A.C. to set and seal the make up look for the day.
I know it seems like a lot. Once you gone down the make up rabbit hole it’s not, lol. There are a lot of makeup products I “should” add to my makeup process but as if yet this is it.
