Step 1:
Apply primer all over face and allow for product to sink in. 

Step 2:
Apply foundation and use beauty blender, fingers or foundation brush to blend product into your skin. I use the Real Techniques Beauty Blender. 

Step 3: 
Apply e.l.f concealer on any spots and red patches and the Rimmel concealer under your eyes and around your nose in a triangle shape. Blend using fingers or beauty blender. 

Step 4: 
Mix the cream and banana shades in the contouring kit and set the Rimmel concealer. Dust some over your forehead, nose and chin. 

Step 5: 
Bronze your skin in a 3 motion over your temples, cheeks and chin. Apply blush over cheeks. Finish by spraying your face with your make-up finishing spritz (totally optional) and allow to set. 

Step 6: 
Fill in brows and shape using gel. 

Step 7: 
Prime eyelids with eyelid primer and use a soft matte brown shadow in your crease as a blending colour. Pat e.l.f Long lasting lustrous eye shadow in festivity all over your lid using fingers. 

Step 8: 
Blend matte brown shade under the water line, followed by festivity along the waterline. Apply festivity using a thin brush for best application. Complete the eyes with a few coats of mascara to both the top and bottom lashes. 

Step 9: 
Apply lipstick in the shade 264 coffee shimmer and top with a light layer of 240 Undressed. 

That's it! I love doing simple, affordable make-up looks! Are there any brands or colours you'd like me to use? Let me know in the comments below. 

Until next time..
