Step 1. Foundation & Concealer

Step 2: Eye Shadow
Ok so this image isn't the color I use.. but when you click through to the link it will give you all of the options.. I use Half Baked on my eye lids and then I usually use a smoky chocolate color (Smog) in the outside corners or around the crease. Then I hi-lite right under my eyebrows with Vanilla. I HIGHLY recommend Half Baked, Smog & Vanilla-(Vanilla is not in the naked palette but so worth getting the single-it has lasted me years!!) all in Urban Decay eye shadows!! My all time fave for a good 4 years!
Step 3: Powder, Contour & Blush
I apply any powders I have ever used with this brush.. I just love it!!
After I put on my foundation I always set it by brushing on my powder after (I use the brush below to do this step).. it helps my makeup last longer and I like that it gives my face a more matte look and not so shiny! I have yet to be sold on any one powder-- They all seem to do the job.. I feel like foundation is the crucial part and this is just the icing on top! But below, are ones that I have used and recommend!
And on those days where I'm putting more effort into my makeup I do a simple version of contouring. This palette has been my favorite by far.. Looking at the image below, I use the top left on the palette for the cheek bone area and then I usually mix the two on the right together for hiliting different areas on my face (i did do the hi-liting cheek bones step in video). Not only are the colors perfect shades they literally have a diagram of where you needed to be using them on your face so it makes things EXTREMELY easy! Then I usually always brush on blush!
Step 4: Eye Brows
I literally feel naked without shading my eyebrows in. I first started shading them in 5-6 years ago but it's something I have to do before I leave the house! Shading your eyebrows in just helps give them a better shape and I always recommend getting your eyebrows threaded which will also help in giving them a good shape! I am 98% sure I will never try microblading.. to me it doesn't look any better than shading your eyebrows in.. and I don't mind that shading it in takes me 30 seconds to do every morning. Microblading is not worth the upkeep & pain in my book!
So I have been using this palette forever now, but I do recommend buying another eye shadow brush -- the one that comes with it is not a favorite! I just went to Walgreens and bought a cheap one but it totally does the job a 1,000 times better than the one they give you. I also only use the bottom right one (brunette) and didn't care for the setting wax process
I currently need to buy some more, I have let my lashes get more stubby than I like..
