I know the glow exists.
I have seen it with my own eyes…
although, there’s one time in particular that I did not see it…
In the mirror, my entire pregnancy.
Mostly I just saw a lot more puffiness…maybe that was my glow?
Who knows? At any rate I did come up with some tricks for makeup for my ever-changing pregnant face
My beautiful little sister Celeste is 25 weeks pregnant and sweet enough to let me demonstrate on her.. in her case we don’t have to fake it.
She is one of the glowers.
But, we sure can capitalize on that aura BLING.
My main focus with this makeup was to highlight and contour to really accentuate the cool stuff that pregnancy is offering her.
For instance her cheeks are fuller than usual.
Full cheeks are THE BEST.
They are youthful and pleasant and feminine.
And with some contour you can make those cheek bones look CRAZY good.
Plus you can go a little heavier on the eye makeup and do more of a strikingly arched brow without looking harsh. That softness in the skin allows you so much leeway.
I used theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer under her cheek bones on the sides of her nose under her lip (to make it pout out) and around the edges of her face.
Then I arched her brow with Anastasia Brow Powder Duo Brunette.
Next I used Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Fresh Pink in the apples of her cheeks.
Then I highlighted her under her eyes and unto the top of her cheek to the sides of her nose, on her chin and on her nose with
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Ivory
Lined the inner rim of her eyes and on the lash line of her lid with
L’Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Black.
And then smudged that out with a cone brush and the dark brown from SEPHORA COLLECTION Moonshadow Baked Palette – In The Nude and highlighted her brow with the ivory.
PS I made a video tutorial of this look HERE
I used CoverGirl Perfect Blend Pencil in Mink to line her lips. And Nude Nuances lip color (which is FREAKIN’ limited!) But similar to SEPHORA COLLECTION in No. 03 Tenderness (even though the photo here makes it look ug, it’s pretty trust me.)
Speaking of Nude Nuances, I did fine ONE left at my local Walgreens, since so many of you were sad you couldn’t buy it I couldn’t really feel good about not snagging that joyous lipstick and giving it away. So I wanted to do a quick contest (nothing crazy) just comment that you want it and (if you already haven’t) like my page on Facebook. The giveaway will end at Midnight on Wednesday the 15th of August.
