Hello and happy Sunday. Today’s post is special for different reasons. The first is that I will be doing a step-by-step tutorial, kind of like a “get ready with me.” The second reason why this post is special is the fact that I’ll be using most of the products from just one brand, which is Trestique. Let’s get started, shall we?
After priming, I apply the Correct & Cover Concealer Crayon in Porcelain under my eyes and in areas of redness, and then I use the Moisturize & Blend Tinted Face Stick in Cape Cod Stone as foundation.
I love that both my skin tone and texture look even and ready for more makeup. I use all of my Trestique products when traveling because I love that my makeup doesn’t move around throughout the day, and that all of the products come with their own brush or special applicator, so I just have to carry one bag.
For my eyebrows I use the Brow Pencil in Americano. First, I use the pencil to shape and fill out the holes in my brows.
Then I use the gel. Now, this is a step I usually skip, unless I’m up for a very long day and I want my eyebrows to stay in place. It also helps intensify the color of the brows.
For my eyes I got the Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon in Aspen Pine. I like this color because it’s this deep green but it also has a gray-ish undertone and it goes great with brown. Basically, it worn with the right colors, it’s foolproof.
The Eye Pencil in Roman Bronze completes the eye look perfectly, you just need to add some mascara and you’re good to go. I like to do a thick line both on the top and bottom, and to smudge it out a bit. I love the specks of shimmery copper this eyeliner reflects. It almost looks like a liquid eyeliner.
I love how once you add the eye makeup, everything starts making more sense. To contour and add some warmth to my ghostly face, I used the Bronzer Stick in Brazilian Bronze. Because it is a stick, it allows more definition and control. It also blends like a dream and is great for nose contouring.
I don’t know if you can see the hint of coral on my cheek, but that’s totally what I’m into when I’m traveling. It’s true that I don’t (ever) want to look natural, but I also don’t want to risk wearing something super pigmented and then looking crazy and not being able to fix my makeup. So, I try to be subtle, and the Blush Stick in Bora Bora Coral just does it for me.
You know I’m not really into following makeup “rules,” but sometimes I do because it’s more comfortable for me. When I’m traveling I have a limited amount of products, time, and space, so I’d rather make safe choices. This is why I picked the Lip Crayon in Costa Rica Coral & Bellini Balm. I apply the balm first, and then the actual matte color. I say this is a safe choice because, like the blush, it’s a coral. The fact that the blush and the lips match makes the look cohesive.
This is the completed look. Whenever I travel, I make sure to take my setting spray and add a generous amount to my face when I’m done with makeup. For me, that’s the secret,
The set of products I used for this look cost $175. Again, each product comes with a brush or applicator, as well as other features.
Now, in the comments I’d like you to let me know what you think about the look I came up with, and whether you’d like to try out Trestique. Also, if there’s another brand you’d like me to check out, let me know because I’m always looking for new stuff.
Love, Miss Camila
