My Make-Up Routine

  1. Wash + moisturize my face
  2. Prime my face
  3. Apply a light coat of my MK CC cream (in Very Light) all over my face and down my neck
  4. Apply my highlight under my eyes, in the middle of my forehead, down my nose, and by my jaw line.
  5. Apply contour down the sides of my nose, on my cheeks to the tops of my ears, around my temple area, top of my forehead, and around my chin.
  6. Blend all of my concealers in by blotting and dabbing until well blended.
  7. Buff out the edges where the highlight and contour meet so I have a smooth transition.
  8. Set my highlight with a setting powder + set my contour with a bronzer
  9. Fill in my eyebrows
  10. Apply my eyeshadow and create my eye look, then do my eyeliner + mascara.
  11. Apply highlighters to wanted areas, then blush.
  12. Exfoliate my lips + apply Vaseline.
  13. Apply lip liner and lip color.
  14. Apply setting spray.

  1. I really love these make up looks. They’re so simple. I do make-up but not all the time and trust me when you literally run into your campus from your house. Make up seems unnecessary but i still do it.
