Face Lift with NYX Products

IMG_5769.JPGWho wants to go through surgery and the recovery to look a little bit younger?  I definitely don’t!

Through a co-worker and with the help from Hayley, I have discovered the next best thing!

I am using these two products from NYX, a very affordable, drugstore brand.  I used the Wonderstick in “Deep Profound” and Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in “Sunbeam.”fullsizeoutput_22e0fullsizeoutput_22e1.jpegfullsizeoutput_22e2.jpegfullsizeoutput_22e3.jpegfullsizeoutput_22e4.jpeg

I also used this contour and blender sponge duo.

Start by applying foundation and concealer.  Wet the larger blending sponge and blend in products.IMG_5718.JPGIMG_5719.JPGIMG_5720.JPGIMG_5721.JPG

Next, using the darker end of the WonderStick….IMG_5722.JPG

Draw lines..IMG_5723.JPGunderneath cheekbones on both sides.IMG_5724.JPGThen draw…IMG_5725.JPGon forehead…

And for a “nose job”….IMG_5727.JPGdraw down both sides of nose bone.IMG_5728.JPGThen for a “lip enhancement”…IMG_5734.JPGunderneath lip.

Next, draw a line across jawbone.IMG_5741.JPGIMG_5752.JPGNow, using the lighter end of the stick, draw a line on chin, across forehead, down the center of nose, and down both sides of mouth from nose to lip.IMG_5736.JPG

Wet and squeeze excess water out of smaller blending sponge.  Blend in all the lines, using small strokes.IMG_5746.JPGIMG_5748.JPGIMG_5753.JPGIMG_5757.JPGNow using the highlight cream with a small brush….IMG_5760Apply a small amount to top of cheekbones and middle of forehead.  (Oops! I missed my forehead a bit, but end up blending it in when applying illuminator.)IMG_5764.JPGNow, apply powder, blush, eyeshadow, mascara, brow product and lip product.IMG_5770.JPGIMG_5771.JPGIMG_5772.JPGIMG_5773.JPGIMG_5774.JPG

I was a little intimidated by these products at first, but by playing around with them with the help of Hayley, there was nothing to it.  I recommend you start out by using a little bit at a time until you achieve the look you are aiming for.

Stay beautiful!

Toodle-oo,

Melanie
