glowy flawless face tutorial and ootd

hi girls! its been awhile :( and i know i constantly say this, but now that high school and graduation is over, im officially on summer..that means new and more frequent blog posts!

today i did a tutorial for how i achieve glowy airbrushed skin :)
DISCLAIMER: excuse the messy brows (my appts today!), the bad under eye circles (my concealers in my moms purse), and the foundation on the towel :)

i start off with a bare face which has been moisturized with jojoba oil...i let that sink in for about 5 minutes (expect a post on jojoba oil soon:)
i then take my sonia kashuk highlighting brush and dip it into my favorite foundation atm (maybelline 24 hour foundation in nude)

i stipple (dot) it onto my face and then blend it in circles til my whole face is covered

i let it sit for a few minutes...i find that this helps it look more natural. it also lets it dry a bit before i apply my powder..
i use an essence of beauty powder brush and my maybelline dream matte powder in light 4-5 and buff that into my skin

then, i take my sugar kabuki brush and my nyc bronzer in sunny and pick some up.
i lightly brush this onto my cheeks, my forehead, my chin, and on the sides of nose.

i then take my lovely e.l.f. duo in bronzed/beach (i believe!) and take the peachy pink side (amazing orgasm dupe, i lovee this) and apply it to my apples. i take whatever excess is on the brush and sweep it up lightly towards my temples. i used an old lancome blush brush for this.

next, i use my favorite favorite highlighter of all my time- MAC hush! this product will definitely be getting it's own post, im obsessed :)
i take my middle finger and rub it on my apples up towards my temples.

and youre done! i spray my face with a plasma 21 spray (fix+ dupe) to help my face from looking cakey as well as locking in the look.
