Soft Makeup

By Li Li Bee

Hey ladies! Just wanted to come to you guys with a quick post on how I achieved the look that I wore to my ✨ birthday dinner!✨ It features a slightly bronzed matte face, with a cut-crease on the lid using neutral colored e/s, and a pink nude lip.  


This look was inspired by a Youtuber that I’ve been following lately, Face Over Matter (Hey girlie!!)


I picked up a few new makeup items to test out for this look. One item in particular, Maybelline Matte + Poreless foundation, has received mixed reviews by beauty gurus on YT so I figured I’d give it a try to see if I’d like it. I’m going on vacation for the next 4 days, so I’ll be sure to post a review of how well this foundation held up for me by next week. 

Below are a list of products that I used and how I applied them to achieve this look.
