My thoughts on some of the newer products I used:

I liked the Ardell Brow Pomade, but I felt it was not quite dark enough and I had to go back in with some black shadow. It could work on someone with a fairer complexion, but it didn’t show up on my skin the way I would have liked. Although the Wet n Wild MegaGlo Contouring Palette ended up working out, it really wasn’t what I was expecting. The color looked more on the yellow side which is why I picked it up, but once it was on my skin the yellow color did not show up at all. I picked it up because I was looking for a setting powder that was similar to the Ben Nye Banana Powder which I really love. The other powder I tried for the first time was the AirSpun Translucent Extra Coverage Powder. It had a fragrance to it that was like baby powder, not bad, just different. It went on smoothly, and kept my face matte. I wasn’t expecting this to have a yellow undertone, so that wasn’t a concern for me but I’m still on the hunt for a drugstore dupe of the Ben Nye. But until then, I’m just going to stick with my Ben Nye powder.

Hi loves. Welcome to my channel. My name is Tara, and today I’m going to be showing you how I created this make up look. This is a drugstore glam, it’s my go to look when I want to be glamorous in the day time and I’m familiar with it so I tend to do it most of the time.
You can definitely wear this look for the night time, but I’m actually going to show you how to take this look from daytime to nighttime in this video.
We’re going to punch it up a bit with some deeper, darker more vibrant colors.

So if you are interested in seeing how I created this look, just keep watching it. Let’s get started.

I’m going to begin by applying the NYX Pore Filler Primer to my face, I like to press it into my face in the areas where I have larger pores and then just smooth it over the rest of my face. While that’s setting in, I’m going to grab my Ardell Dark Brown Eyebrow Gel and an angle brush and I’m just gonna fill in my brows creating a shape that’s flattering for my face. I’m going to clean up my brows using the LA Girl Pro Concealer in the color Chestnut, which is the darker of the two. I will have a detailed eyebrow routine coming soon, so subscribe so you can catch it. I’m just gonna go ahead and blend that out with my fingers.

Now that the primer has had time to settle into my face, I’m going to move onto my foundation. I’m going to be using two foundations, one is the Black Radiance Color Perfect foundation in the color Cocoa Bean as well as the Maybelline SuperStay foundation in the color Cocoa. The Black Radiance foundation has more of a matte finish which I really like and the Maybelline foundation provides a bit more coverage. I’m gonna be applying this using an Elf powder brush first and then following up with a damp beauty sponge to really get that airbrush finish. Adding more foundation to build up to the coverage that I want.

To move onto my eyes, first I’m going to prime my lids using the LA Girl Concealer in Fawn and then I’m gonna set it all using the Black Radiance Soft Focus Finishing Powder in Milk Chocolate. This will prevent my eyelids from creasing and it’ll also create a nice base that will allow my eye shadows to glide on smoothly. I am going to begin by placing the color Warm Berry from the Black Radiance Baked Blush Collection slightly above my crease, using a fluffy brush, this will serve as a transition color.

Then, I’m going to pick up another fluffy brush and use the brown shade from the City Color Brow palette. I’m going to place this color beneath the transition shade, closer to my crease and just blend it out together with the transition shade. Once that’s blended out smoothly, I’m going to pick up this gorgeous Milani eyeshadow in the color Bronze Doll and I’m gonna pat this on to my lids, keeping it below the crease. I’m then going to grab the fluffy brush with the brown eyeshadow and blend the lid and the crease areas together. The last step of this eye shadow look will be to add a wing using black liquid eyeliner. This one is from NYX. To complete the look I’m going to add a coat of mascara to my lashes just to blend then into the falsies.

Moving back to the face, I’m now going to highlight and conceal. Using both these shades from LA girl.  I’m going to start first with the Chestnut color , placing it underneath my eyes and blending that out with a damp beauty sponge. The purpose of highlighting, concealing and contouring is not only to cover darkness and to brighten up the face but also to add dimension back into your face.  You’ll notice that your face can look really flat and one-dimensional when you apply foundation. This helps to bring back all those light and dark areas that give your face character. I’m then going to go back over my under eye area using the color fawn to brighten that area up even more. I’m also going to highlight my chin, and my cupids bow. And because I really want that under eye area to be quite bright I’m going to add a bit more of the fawn concealer. To balance everything out, I’m also going to highlight and conceal my forehead as well as down the bridge of my nose.

To mimic the natural shadows on the face and to chisel my cheekbones, I’m going to add this dark brown contour  shade to the hollows of my cheekbones. Blending in an upward motion will give the appearance of a lifted and high cheekbone. I’m also going to add that same dark brown contour color to the perimeter of my forehead, this will make my forehead appear smaller and add more dimension.

I’m then going to do something called reverse contouring, this is when you add a light concealer shade beneath your contour to make your cheekbones appear sharper and more defined. I’ll be using the shade chestnut and blending it all out using a damp beauty sponge.

Now it’s time to lock in all the work we’ve just done. I’m going to be using two different setting powder’s today. One is the Airspun Translucent Extra Coverage and the other is the Wet n Wild Contour palette. I placed the Wet n Wild under my eyes to prevent creasing and I used the Airspun everywhere else. I placed the powder in all the areas that I concealed earlier, like under my eyes, my forehead, my chin, underneath my cheekbones, and down the bridge of my nose.

After about 5 to 10 minutes of baking, allowing the powder to really soak into my skin and soak up my oils, I buffed the powder into my skin and brushed the excess away. As you can see I was a little concerned about the Wet n Wild powder, but it ended up working out. Setting your face in this way will not only allow your make up to last longer but it will also give you that airbrush finish. To add some warmth back into my face I’m going to be bronzing my cheekbones and around the perimeter of my face using the Warm Berry blush that I used for my eyes. Next, to bring everything together and tone down some of the brightness, I’m going to be using the Black Radiance Soft Focus Finishing Powder in Milk Chocolate all over my face. Using a powder brush to buff everything in. To contour and slim down my nose, I’m going to be using the brown shadow from the City Color Brow palette.

Now I’m going to move onto my lower lash line, I like to do this after I’ve concealed and set with powder so that it doesn’t all get brushed away. I’ll be mimicking what I did to my upper eye area, and I’ll be using the Warm Berry color as well as the Brown Color from the brow palette and blending those two together to create a subtle, but smokey effect. Once that’s done I’m simply going to line my water line with a black eyeliner. And finish things up by applying mascara to my lower lash line and a little bit more on top.

To highlight my face I’m going to first use the Elf highlighter in the color Sunkissed,
And then I’m going to layer it with the first shade in the City Color Highlight Trio, this is from the second collection palette. For my blush I’m going to be using an old fave, this is the color Peace from the Iman blush collection. To keep my make up lasting all day, I’m going to be using the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray. This spray gives a matte finish and it also takes away any of the powdery, cakey look that can happen from using so many powders on the face.

I’m going to move onto my lips, first lining my lips with a lip liner in the color espresso. Then I’m going to apply this gorgeous lip color from Maybelline, touchable taupe. I’m then going to line my lips with a darker liner in the color dark brown and finally top it off with the NYX Butter Gloss in Praline. Now for the finishing touches I’m going to apply the gold Milani eye shadow to my inner eye corners, the tip of my nose, down the bridge of my nose and my cupids bow area.

Alright loves, that completes the daytime look, keep watching if you’d like to see how I take this look from daytime to nighttime.

To take this look from day to night I’m going to intensify the eye colors. First by applying more of the Warm Berry color to the lower lash line and smoking it out with a black shadow from Wet n Wild. I’m going to be taking that same Warm Berry and black color and adding it into the crease area and blending it all out with a fluffy brush.

For my lips I’m going to start with a dark brown  liner then I’m going to apply the first lip color from NYX in the color Copenhagen and then I’m going to apply Monte Carlo to the center of my lips. I realized I wanted the lip to be even darker, so I added a black lip liner and more of the two lip colors to complete the look.

Alright my loves, that about completes today’s tutorial. I’ve shown you how to create this daytime look as well as how to take it to the nighttime.
