Teresa Giudice exudes glamour on a daily basis. The Real Housewives of New Jersey makeup lover never leaves home without a properly stocked makeup bag. In fact, she often carries several cosmetics cases, including one just for glosses and lipsticks. Still, it wasn't until Teresa recently gave Bravo Insider an exclusive tour of her vanity that we truly learned just how deep her passion for beauty goes.
"I look like a makeup artist, that's how much makeup I have," Teresa told Bravo Insider — and she wasn't lying. As you can see in the clip above, Teresa's at-home vanity is overflowing with products. With a collection like this, Teresa has naturally become a pro at putting on makeup.
While sharing a peek at her impressive array of cosmetics, the author also gave us a full step-by-step breakdown of her everyday glam.
To create her base, Teresa starts by prepping her skin before applying foundation. "Moisturizing is very important. You don't want dry skin. So when you put your foundation on, you want it to go on really smooth," she explained.
Next, Teresa moves onto her eyes. The RHONJ mama applies a light neutral eyeshadow all over her eyelids using a fluffy tapered eyeshadow brush and then adds a darker color into her creases for depth. To blend the eyeshadow into her creases, Teresa brushes the eyeshadow on using a back and forth motion (similar to Melissa Gorga's "windshield wiper" technique).
Her tip for a daytime eye look: "I like to put a little eyeshadow on the bottom of my eye."
Teresa then applies concealer underneath her eyes and along the center of her face to brighten and highlight her features using a makeup sponge (a trick she learned from her makeup artist). She follows with a darker cream contour stick, which she applies along her cheekbones, forehead, and jawline, and blends it in with a brush.
After topping her concealer with a setting powder, it's on to lips. "Jennifer [Aydin] has gotten a lot of crap for using lip liner, but I love love love my lip liner," Teresa shared. "I can't live without it — and the shades that I love are pretty much all nudes."
Check out Teresa's full makeup tutorial in the video above.
