Vogue’s Madison Beer makeup tutorial was viral in February. It was an amazing revelation. The best part? It was possible.
Madison Beer’s makeup routine is simple, but it is very different from my usual low-maintenance, easy-to-follow routine. The look required a cream contour, signature fox eyes, and many blushes.
This was my second attempt at it, two weeks ago. Since then, I’ve received many compliments. Since then, I have received so many compliments.
Step 1: Prep skin
Madison prepares her skin tint to apply makeup by using a cleanser and toner, jade rolling, moisturizing, and a moisturizer. Madison finishes her tutorial with a facial mist. My skin tone is more radiant.
Step 2 – To tame your eyebrows, you can use soap and a spoolie
I was unsure if I liked the trend of soap brows. Madison Beer encouraged me to reconsider the idea. Use a spoolie and spray the soap with setting liquid to apply the soap to your brows.
If my eyebrows aren’t already tamed and tinted, they look better.
Step 3 – As a base use a tinted moisturizer
This makeup tutorial doesn’t need foundation! Madison uses a tinted moisturizer to even out her skin tone.
I have never been a fan of foundation, so this is a step I can definitely get behind.
Step 4 – Cover the T-zone below your eyes and any blemishes
Since I can remember, I have been a NARS Radiant creamy container stan. It was a delight to discover that Madison also uses NARS Radiant Creamy Container concealer. I normally keep it under my eye. This concealer works well with tinted moisturizers.
Step 5 – Apply a cream contour on the cheekbones and forehead
Madison’s make-up routine was the reason I was stunned. The contour stick from Charlotte Tilbury was so simple to use, that I no longer contour with bronzer.
I almost ran to the internet to place an order, but it was already out of stock. Now, fast forward. I almost ran to the web browser to place an order for one. But to my dismay, it was already sold out.
Instead, I bought the Makeup Revolution Under Eye Concealer in a darker shade than mine. Even though I don’t own a CT version of the concealer, I can tell it did great work.
Step 6 – Apply a cream blush on the cheekbones and bridge
Madison has a long-term, committed relationship with blush. Madison used both a cream blush and a powder blush. Madison laughed and said that you can’t have too many blushes. Powder blush is a finishing touch for my makeup.
The Charlotte Tilbury Pinkgasm makeup light wand that she used in her tutorial has been discontinued. I used a drugstore cream blush (sweet Cheeks by NYX) to replace the Charlotte Tilbury Pinkgasm beauty light wand.
Step 7 – Apply a setting powder under the eyes, T zone, and on blemishes
Madison’s makeup routine was the reason I was stunned. The contour stick from Charlotte Tilbury was so simple to use, that I no longer contour with bronzer.
I almost ran to the internet to place an order, but it was already out of stock. Now, fast forward. I almost ran to the web browser to place an order for one. But to my dismay, it was already sold out. Instead, I bought the Makeup Revolution Under Eye Concealer in a darker shade than mine. Even though I don’t own a CT version of the concealer, I can tell it did great work.
Step 8 – Apply a powder bronzer to give your cheekbones a warm glow and contour your nose
Madison first applies concealer, then she goes to work shaving with a medium-sized fluffy brush. Madison applies concealer to her cheekbones and then uses a medium-sized fluffy comb to shave.
Step 9 – Apply a powder blush on the bridge and cheekbones.
Okay, this is where my heart attack started. I have never used so many products on my face before. I was at the point where I needed a break. Fortunately, Madison took a powder brush and applied a finishing touch of blush to her cheekbones.
10: Use a neutral eyeshadow to fill in the creases of your eyes, and then use a darker brown shadow to draw the corners.
Madison makes an eye look that I rarely see. Madison applies concealer, then adds powder bronzer. Finally, she dusts on powder blush with a small fluffy brush. She then draws the outer and inner corners with an angled brush using a darker eyeshadow. This gives her her trademark fox-eye look.
Notice: This would look just as great, if not better when paired with a brown waterproof liner. Because we didn’t prepare our outer and inner corners with concealer, my dark brown shadow bled slightly.
Step 11 – Apply mascara to the inner corners and highlight with a light shadow or highlighter.
Madison applies mascara to her eyes. Madison applies mascara to her eyes with a small brush. She then highlights the inner corners of her eyes with a light shadow or highlighter.
I don’t have a problem with my mascara, but I will say that Madison’s application method gives her an extra lift.
Step 12: Use neutral lipstick for defining the lips. Apply a gloss with a clear or light pink lipstick to finish.
Madison completes her look with neutral-colored lipstick and clear gloss. I’ve never been a huge lipstick fan. I prefer lip oil gloss because it’s easier to apply and doesn’t require a mirror.
13: Set your makeup with a setting spray
Madison uses a setting spray to keep her makeup in place all day long. I use a setting powder on my T-zone and under my eyes.
And that’s it! You’re done!
Now that you’ve seen Madison’s full routine, what do you think? Will you be trying any of these steps? Let us know in the comments below!
Madison’s Vogue makeup tute inspired me to incorporate many of her techniques into my everyday makeup. While it was initially frightening, I quickly discovered that I loved the warmth and durability of cream too much blush.
I love blushing my nose. Lipgloss can be added to the list. When I want to add color to my lips, my neutral lip liner and my lipgloss will do.
Madison’s beautiful fox-eye look is stunning, but it wasn’t for me. Literally and metaphorically. This is probably because we didn’t use any concealer before applying the darker shadows. I still like this look. To prolong the wear, I would use an eye primer before applying darker shadows.
The Final Verdict
I love this makeup tutorial. I’m going to be using it as my everyday makeup routine. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a simple, everyday makeup routine.
