I spent this morning getting ready for the 87th Annual Academy Awards aka Oscars 2015. Maybelline helped me get ready and sent me the super cool London makeup artist, Jo Baker to paint my face. Oh, painted she did, with a bunch of Maybelline products! We decided neutrals was the way to go and she gave me the most dramatic lined eyes and smokey brown shadows on the lid.
I usually opt for coral tones of my lips but because Jo went heavy on the eyes, she suggested I go easy on the lips so we chose the Nude Embrace matte lipstick. I always feel like nude lipstick makes me look sick, but this one complemented my skin quite nicely.
Above Maybelline products are what Jo Baker used on my face. I personally am a big fan of their BB cream especially their Dream Fresh BB Cream but gave the Pure BB Cream a try and couldn’t really tell the difference. Oh, and the Fit Me Matt Foundation works wonders.
FYI, my skin was not retouched as you can see the minor bags under my eyes. I had just gotten off the plane from New York yesterday + ate a lot of tacos late at night hence my face was a bit swollen but really, this makeup thing is working wonders for me.
