I created this soft smokey full face makeup look using just my fingers - no makeup brushes!! I know what a pain it can be to cart around makeup brushes as well as makeup products when you’re travelling or going on holiday. So, being able to apply your full face using just your fingers can save on space as well as the pain of having to clean your brushes! Obviously it won’t be able as ‘perfect’ as it could be with the use of brushes - we have them for a reason! BUT… you can definitely create something beautiful with the tools you were born with!
To see how I created this look, please click here or on the link below to view the tutorial:
Look at the different pictures and styles, decide which one works best for you and below are different pieces and articles of clothing you can use to help get the look!
Remember: Don’t Worry about what will “look best on you”. You will look beautiful in the style that you feel most comfortable in and expresses you the best. This is the new year. Challenge yourself to open up to different styles and pieces you were previously afraid to try!

❥Remember: In any fashion choice you must back it up. Wear it with confidence and when people try to tell you it doesn’t look good on you or it doesn’t seem like you, just remind them it’s your life and you will wear what you want to. Let 2014 become your year to find yourself and completely express yourself. You can even mix and match pieces from different looks and create your own, original style.
❥Send me an ASK if you have questions about any of the pieces or stores!
