How To Get A Full Glam Makeup Look


Glam looks are a statement in the beauty world. It's everyone's go-to look for events, holidays, or just to get dolled up. Glam looks consist of a flawless natural base that showcases all your beautiful features, an eye look that stands out (whether it be shimmers and sparkles, a sharp- winged eyeliner, or voluminous lashes, and a lip that sets the tone. Here is a step-by-step guide to creating a full glam makeup look.


#1 PREP THE FACE

First step, you will need a makeup primer. Glam makeup looks starts with healthy radiant skin. I used the Farsali Unicorn Essense Antioxidence Serum + Primer and the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Radiant Primer + Serum. Both used together enhanced my natural complexion, gave me a radiant glow from within, and prep my skin for a beautifully for my makeup application.


#2 ARE YOU A BROWS FIRST GIRL?

Absolutely! If your not, it's okay, I don't judge. You can complete this step at any time within your makeup application. My go-to brow pencil is the Morphe Micro Brow Pencil in the shade Java. Use a concealer to clean up brows. Makeup Tip: Clean the top of the brows with the foundation you will be using.


#3 EYE SHADOW

I love doing my eyeshadow first, especially if I'm using dark shades or shimmer and metallic shades. The fall out on top of my bomb, flawless base is unacceptable. (If you are not that kind of girl, you can come back to this step after complexion). You will want to take your time on this step. It can go left real quick lol. Start off with a transition shade in your crease area making sure it is deepened in your crease and outer V and lightly blended towards your brow bone. Next, take a shimmery shade and apply it all over your lids and, optional, in your tear duct areas. This eyeshadow application gives a timeless, effortless full glam look. Use the same crease shade on your bottom lash line. In this step, I used Wahala II Eyeshadow Palette by Juvias Place-- ASAP, a rich wine matte shade, in my crease and GREED, a greyish-silver shimmer with soft white pearls, all over my lids.





#4 LINER UP

Wing it out sis. Grab your favorite eyeliner and create a wing or just a liner moment above the lashes. I used the Makeup Revolution Super Flick Eyeliner. If you're not feeling eyeliner today, go in with a black, dark brown shadow, or deep shade and create a blended-out eyeliner effect.


#5 GET YOUR COMPLEXION RIGHT

Time to grab your foundation and concealers to create a flawless complexion. During this step, I used the under-paint technique because I wanted to create a glow from within and achieve a harmonious application. I used the L'Oreal Infallible Concealer in the shade Cocoa to contour and the shade Almond and Honey to highlight. I also took my Born This Way Concealer in the shade Chai to color correct/ conceal my imperfections. I blended out everything seamlessly and then applied my foundation. I have been loving the LYS Triple Fix Serum Foundation in the shade DG6. This medium buildable foundation gives a natural, radiant finish, and it lasts all day.

Makeup Tip: Let everything dry down a little before blending. Also, spray your brush with a mattifying spray to make your

makeup stay in place and last all day.



#6 HIGHLIGHT AND CONTOUR

Back in with the highlight and contour. This time we want to create a radiant glow in all the right areas and emphasis our natural structure. Apply concealer under the eyes for a brightened, awake look. Set it with a translucent setting powder. I used the Laura Mercier honey translucent setting powder. Next, take a powder bronzer to create an effortless contour look. I'm obsessed with the L'Oreal Infallible 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation in the shade Deep Amber.


#7 VOLUME UP

I used falses I purchased from Amazon. Then I took the Maybelline Great Lash

mascara on for my bottom lashes.





8# LIPS

Use a deep hue for your lips or simply create a nude lip look, I decided to go with a nude, matte lip because I wanted my eyeshadow to stand out.


#9 SEAL IT UP

Finish your look with a blush soft blush that doesn't take away from your eyes or lips-- something settled. I applied the Beauty Bay Blusher in the shade Coral, a coral matte pink.
