#TheCraftThursday- Superbase

tumblr_static_el_the_craft_1

Hello loves! I know what you're thinking... "Megan when are we going to get to the makeup section of The Craft?" Well friends, that day has come! I know the hair section was super short, but I'm going to try to go back and do some of the things I couldn't do before Summer ends. As for today we are talking about having a great base- note the title "Superbase." (No I did not make up this title, I took it straight from Lou's book.) I'm so excited about this because I love doing my makeup everyday, whether it's just to go to school or going out with my friends. I also love these two pages in the book because the model is none other than Gemma Styles, Harry Styles from One Direction older sister, and I love her. She's absolutely beautiful as well.

So the products that Lou suggests using are Chantecaille Tinted Moisturizer, Chanel Teint Innocence Creme, or Nip & Fab CC Cream. None of which I could find or were in my price range. Well I've found two products that I absolutely love, one is a BB creme and one is a proper foundation.

My tip though is to do a lot of research before you buy something new, especially with makeup. I don't like wasting money, and I hate going out to buy a product then try it out for the first time and absolutely hate it, all because of an impulse buy! So always go through the comments section of the product you want to buy to see what other people are saying, and try to see what beauty bloggers on YouTube are saying.

The BB creme I use on a pretty regular basis, like 3-5 days a week is Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB Creme in the light/ medium tint. It's pretty cheap at around $8 at Target or Ulta and has a decent coverage. The full coverage foundation I just started using is Revlon Colorstay 24 Hour foundation in the color 220 natural beige. I found this from beauty blogger Tanya Burr and I loved what it did with her skin and I decided to try it out for myself and I love it! It gives great coverage but still has a natural look.

Now what I do is to take my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and just blend. blend, blend.

The perfect superbase has been achieved! Add a bit of black gel eyeliner to your top lid and a bit of a highlighter in your inner tear-duct area and you have the perfect look for an easy day around town!

Here's my perfect superbase!

What's your favorite product to have a superbase? Let me know so I can try them out too! Have you tried one of the other looks from The Craft yet? Let me know about that as well.

As always, happy crafting, keep your superbase turned up, and may the wings of your eyeliner always be even!
