MAJOR MAKEUP TIPS
Tiana Zaljevic is a total triple threat: stylist, blogger and makeup genius! That’s why, when it started to get cold out, and our usual beauty routines began to fail, we went to her for advice.
With the assistance of our winter knits and basics, Tiana showed us how to contour and highlight our way to looking like we just vaycayed in St Barts (lol we wish).
Prep your face with a moisturising primer. I used two primers, Napoleon Auto Pilot Primer all over the face and Benefits "That Girl" brightening primer on the places I will be highlighting.
Apply foundation, liquid preferably, and press in with a damp beauty blender.
On the places of your face that you want to appear larger and brighter, apply a lighter concealer or foundation and blend with a beauty blender, followed by a light powder to set. To contour, use a matte brown powder bronzer on the areas you want to appear smaller. I use powders to contour as it is easier to blend than creams.
To add colour and glow to the face, use a soft blush and apply to the apples of the cheeks. For the glow, I use High Beam by Benefit followed by the Carli Bybel Palette.
For brows, use an angled brush and a cream colour that matches your eyebrows to fill out and line the shape you want. Underneath the brow, on the brow bone, apply a lighter concealer followed by an illuminator.
For eyes, I used a dark brown from the Carli Bybel Palette on the outer V and blended it out with a fluffy brush. On the centre of my lid I used the light gold from the same palette very lightly as I wanted this look to be natural and subtle. On the inner corner of my eyes I used the bright illuminator to make my eyes look more awake and open.
Line your lips with a lip liner and use a matte lipstick to complete the look. I used the Kylie Lip Kit liner in Dolce K, and Australis Velour Lips in Paree.
Set your face with either a setting powder or spray.
