Is a professional beauty look possible through drugstore makeup brand Ever Bilena? We put makeup artist Richmond to the test!
We chose fair-skinned model Iya for this Ever Bilena Day Makeup challenge because the range of EB foundations and powders available suit her skin color. Before we get things started, we’d like to clarify that no photos used in this post were digitally altered so results are 100% real. 🙂
FOUNDATION AND POWDER
Richmond used the Ever Bilena Advanced Shine Free Makeup Foundation to conceal the blemishes. The foundation wasn’t used for over-all coverage. He applied more layers in darker areas like under the eye and around the nose and mouth.
Richmond then mattified Iya’s face using the foundation powder. “Never apply the powder with a wet sponge or brush. It will cake and crumble! Use a dry brush / powder puff to set your liquid foundation,” Richmond shared. He then contoured using a darker shade of the Ever Bilena Foundation Powder.
“Ever Bilena eye shadows are versatile, you can mix eye shadows to achieve a desired color or shade. If you want a more intense color, wet the brush before applying the eye shadow.” It also helps to moisturize the eye lid before applying the shadow to make sure the powder sticks to the skin. Richmond started with a white shade for the base. He applied up to the brow bone to achieve a highlight.
Before using the Ever Bilena blush powder in Raisin, Richmond used a rose colored lipstick as a cream blush for a natural pink glow. He then mattified and added a little more color with the blush powder. He worked the blush up towards the temple to create contour.
To top off the day look, he used the Ever Bilena Extreme lipstick in Baby Pink.
