There’s nothing quite like a healthy debate to keep you (and your beauty routine) on your toes. We’ve covered our fair share of classic beauty arguments: statement lips or statement eyes, BB cream vs. foundation, mattifiers, vs. primers, etc. We decided to keep the momentum going by throwing a new makeup ultimatum your way, involving two hot, hot looks — matte and shimmery makeup — that seriously have us conflicted. So we want to hear from you … which of these two looks do love more?
Step 1: Apply a tinted moisturizer (we love La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur) to your face and blend in well with your fingers or cosmetic sponge. Dust a matte powder on your face and neck for coverage.
Step 2: Apply a matte fuchsia shadow (like Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Woodstock) on the lids and blend the color outward with a fluffy brush, so it extends just past the crease. Dust the same color along the lower lash line as well.
Step 3: Apply a shimmer-free, rosy blush along the cheekbone, blending upward to the temples.
