7. Denise Sanchez

I asked what videos u lovers wanted to see and a bunch of you requested highlighting & contouring 😝...lol. I love trying out new products, so for this video I decided to use a bunch of new ones that recently I've been loving. ___ Let's jump right in 🎥: 💋Step 1: *New Product* The Line Smoother & Primer by @amazingcosmetics_official. It's velvety and soft texture felt great on my skin. My makeup stayed in place all day. 💋Step 2: *New Product* @coverfx cream compact. I've heard amazing things about this brand. I picked up the foundation and it's full coverage, free of all the things u should avoid putting on your skin and didn't feel heavy at all. (I always scope out of compacts. Whirling a dirty brush inside of ur makeup promotes bacteria and can cause you to break out.) I applied this with the new foundation brush by @motivescosmetics. 💋Step 3: *New Product* @narsissist Creamy Concealer. Recommended by @tenipanosian. This product is just fabulous. Opaque, blends well & photographs perfectly. I blended out the product with a damp @beautyblender. 💋Step 4: Set face with pressed powder in #170 by @makeupforeverofficial. Set all highlighted areas with @lauramercier Translucent Powder. 💋Step 5: Contour Face using @nyxcosmetics Bronzing powders. Whenever I use strictly powders to contour I use two shades. "Medium" & "Deep Tan". It eliminates the muddy look and adds some depth by using two products. "Medium" is used around the perimeter of my face, to contour my nose and as a transition for "Deep Tan" which I only use to further define my cheekbones. (You can also use it around the jawline, but I usually skip that step.) 💋Step 6: Apply "Mocha" blush by @maccosmetics & "Rose Gold" loose shimmer as a highlight by @gleam_melaniemills. These highlighters are perfect!!! (Reviewing them soon). 💋Step 7: Set face with Oil Control Setting Spray by @skindinavia. Lashes are "Khloe" from the Pinup Girl Collection by @lashesbylena. Lips are the new Double Glam Matte/Gloss liquid lipsticks in "Treasure" by @feyoshecosmetics. __ Hope you guys like & thank you for allowing me to be myself ❤️. Love u guys. 🎧Song: Drake ft Andre 3000- The Real Her
