#IFBcon And How I’m Fighting Sickness

I got up really early today, and got on a 6am flight to NYC. I tried to get a nap after I got in because I knew I had a busy day, but I wasn’t feeling too hot. Well the sudden cold snap back home and the cold snap here in NYC, combined with the humid rain, has really done a number on my body. I just stayed in bed the rest of the afternoon. I need to rest my body up.

How To Get the Perfect Fall Cheeks

This guest post is from Vivalaqbee03. Check out all of her Cheek Week Beauty posts here!

We all know that once the seasons change, so does our make up. Continuing to wear the same foundation, concealer, blush and various other products as you did in the summer doesn’t work. I love eye make up, but having the right type of blush brings life to anyone’s face. This week is going to be dedicated to cheeks so make sure you visit everyday to get the 411 on how to make your cheeks fabulous. This post is going to give you the key to having the perfect fall cheeks.

Perfect Fall Cheek Examples

Kim Kardashian

Gabrielle Union

Zoe Saldana

Hayden Panettiere

FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT: Drink water. In the winter the cold air can cause the skin to dry out and flake easily. The trick to having the perfect blush look in the winter is having a certain glow to your skin. If the skin is not properly taken care of, then there is not way to bring out the natural glow in your skin so drink up 🙂

— You want the skin to look glowing and warm. The following tips will help you achieve this look. Let me know which works for you.

Helpful Blush TIP :): Always tap excess off before you apply it to your face.

1. Bronze Up To It: One way to achieve this look is to apply a sheer shimmery bronzer to contour the cheeks (use shimmery bronzer with a very light hand). Use a kabuki brush or the brush that you use to apply your blush. Once you have the bronzer in place, slightly drag it up to the apples of the cheeks. You do not need to reapply bronzer for this step, just simply drag the bronzer to the apples of the cheeks. Next go into a warm color blush and apply it to the apples of the check. This will help you achieve Hayden’s look  in the picture above.

Example of a Warm Blush: Benefit’s Coralista

2. Round It Out: Another flattering way to bring color to your face in the fall is to focus on the bottoms of the apples of the cheeks. This look can be seen on Km Kardashian and Gabrielle Union above. Apply your blush lightly in apply letter U swipe. Apply a highlight the upper half of the apples of the cheek. This look is simple as 1 2 3.

Example of a highlighter: Urban Decay’s Urbanglow

3. Livin’ the High Life: The last technique I am going to talk about is bringing attention to the cheekbones. This technique is great for those with high cheekbones. You can see an example of this in Zoe Saldana’s picture above.Start by applying the blush to the apples of the cheeks and then sweep the color back towards the temples. Next place your choice of highlighter on the tip of your index finger and trace your cheekbone upward. This will give your face an instant lift.

My Favorite Makeup Products

TFAS is now mobile.
These are some of my favorite beauty products. I love these items and use them whenever I wear makeup. I also recommend these items to anyone. Please tell me your favorite beauty items in the comments below.

I would be nowhere without the MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer since I have hyperpigmentation. This concealer is strong enough to cover tattoos, yet it doesn’t feel heavy on my face.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation is the best liquid foundation I have ever used. I keep trying to find others, like an idiot, but I can’t find any that can blend into my skin, even my skin tone, and make my skin look so smooth. I get sooo many compliments from this foundation.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this mascara. I used to use LashExact by CoverGirl, but now I am a devoted lover of the CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara. This mascara makes my eyelashes so full and bright. I always get the Very Black to match my black eyelashes. Get this so your eyes can really pop.
Next up is my favorite set of blushes. BH Cosmetics are known for making some great highly pigmented eyeshadows that are perfect for day and night. I love them so much, but their blush set is even better. The blushes are so pigmented that I barely have to put much on, and they last all day. My cheeks end up looking so rosy and full of life.

Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray has helped my makeup stay fresh throughout this hot, hot summer. I could sweat buckets of water and it wouldn’t even matter. After my sweat dries off, my skin still has that matte oh she just put makeup on look, and you can’t beat that.
Last I want to show you the best investment any girl can make on makeup products. For $9.99 you can go to Target or Target.com and get the Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge. All you have to do is wet the sponge a little, dab it in your liquid makeup (I use it religiously with my liquid foundation), and blend it on your face. I promise you will have airbrushed looking skin.
