Happy Monday! Today, I’m talking makeup. Specifically, cake it on, super full coverage, ain’t-gunna-budge Summer makeup! Summer is usually the season of weddings, showers, and special events that you want to A) look your best for, and B) need a face that’s not going to melt off in the heat. Luckily, I’ve had a little practice in this arena and I’ve got a few tricks to share with you!
I wanted to create this look using a mix of high and low end products that I genuinely love. A lot of them are from the same brands. In my opinion, Kat Von D’s line is one of the best when it comes to full coverage products, so I do use a lot of her things here! The price points are all over the place, but I’m a fan of each and everything that’s featured. So without further ado, take a peek at how I achieve this full coverage face! 😉
A few important things to remember: be sure to use a primer, find the fullest coverage foundation you can – it’s important if you want your makeup to last, set your liquid and cream products with a translucent powder, and make sure you use a finishing spray! 🙂
All of the products that I used:
- Olay Age Defying Moisturizer
- e.l.f. Mineral Primer
- Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
- Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation (Medium Cool)
- Kat Von D Lock-it Creme Concealer (L1 Neutral)
- Beauty Blender
- Kat Von D Translucent Setting Powder
- Kat Von D Powder Foundation (Deep 66)
- Bare Minerals Blush (Giddy Pink)
- e.l.f. Baked Highlighter & Bronzer
- e.l.f Eyebrow Pencil (Neutral Brown)
- Marc Jacobs Precision Pen Liquid Liner (Blacquer)
- Bare Minerals Prime Time Eyeshadow Primer
- Carli Bybel BH Cosmetics Palette (Linked the deluxe version!)
- e.l.f. Liquid Liner (Jet Black)
- Best Lash 3D Fiber Mascara Kit
- e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator
- Kylie Cosmetics Lip Liner in Dolce K
- Milani Lip Liner in Nude
- e.l.f Shimmer Lipgloss (Inspire)
- Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
That may seem like a lot, but then again, this look isn’t for an ordinary day – it’s a special occasion! I mentioned in the video that I’m a firm believe in less is more when it comes to makeup. However, when you’re in or attending a wedding, I really believe that more is more. Looking back at pictures, you’ll agree with me. TRUST!
What are some of your tricks for achieving a full coverage look? Any miracle products out there that I need to know about?
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
This is a really pretty look!
Thank you so much! 🙂
I saw the video and you have great skin loving all the Kat Von D products
Thanks girl! KVD’s line is really phenomenal – everything is pretty incredible!
Loved it Amanda!! As always, you did a fabulous job!!!
Thanks girlfriend! I’m so glad you liked it!! 🙂 XOXO
Flawless! You nailed this look babe! And I totally agree, Kat Von D is the best!
Thanks Britt! She really is, she’s a makeup PRO – her stuff is incredible!! XOXO
Kat Von D products are definitely budge proof and that urban decay setting spray is key to keeping makeup on. Can’t wait to watch the video!
KVD is such a boss in the makeup world – her stuff is LEGIT! And that setting spray is amazing, when I went to link it I realized they redesigned their packaging… I need to upgrade soon! haha
Gorgeous! I love the way you contour. Looks beautiful!
Thank you so much Connie! Nothing too crazy, but it’s fun to sculpt your face a little bit for a special occasion! 🙂
I just recently bought her lock it concealer for my vacation but it wasn’t a fit for me. It said it was water resistant or water proof but it didn’t last even with a quick dip in the pool. I do love the coverage though
Oh nooooo!!! I absolutely love those concealers, they usually hold up really well for me. I haven’t put them to the test against water, but that’s goof to know.
Without any 2nd thought, You really did a great job in video. You nailed this look @amandabella. I also want to share one of my favorite 3d fiber lash Mascara by Miaadora, I request you can you please review it by your side also, so that it can be help me also to analyze this product.
Thanks so much for the compliment! I’ll have to check it out 🙂
