Today I’m sharing with you the makeup that I wear most days. I honestly think that most girls could get away with wearing a lot less makeup than they think. For me, every day makeup is about highlighting my natural beauty by drawing attention towards the features that I like and away from the ones that I don’t, rather than totally covering up and recreating my face. I do like experimenting and playing around with different makeup techniques sometimes though. It’s crazy how much it can change the look of your face.
Let’s get into it.
I like to wear a BB cream, or even just concealer on my face. My main concern is redness on my nose, and chin and the occasional break out or blemish so I don’t need a lot of covereage. Right now I’m using the Rimmel Matte BB cream in the shad light/medium.I set it with a translucent powder. I really love the Rimmel Stay Matte. You can get the BB cream here and the powder at Target here.
I like to use blush or bronzer to add a little bit of life and color to my face because I’m pretty pale. I like the Covergirl Cheekers blush in Brick Rose, the ELF lip balm tint in Grapefruit, the WetnWild Color Icon Bronzer in Ticket to Brazil, and the Physician’s Forumla Butter Bronzer.The ELF lip blam tint is not technically for your cheeks but it looks really good applied with a stipple blush to the apples of the cheeks. I bought the Covergirl here, the ELF here, the WetnWild here, and the Physician’s Formula here.
For my brows, I just brush through them with a brow comb and add a swipe of this Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Brownish Black. It might seem odd to use a mascara on my brows but I think it looks really nice and it literally takes me like 20 seconds to do my brows each day. I bought my Great Lash mascara at Target here.
For my eyes, I curl my lashes and add some lengthening mascara. Sometimes I line my upper lash line with some black liner. I have a review of my favorite mascara here Review: Maybelline Define-A-Lash. I bought my mascara at Target here and my liner on the ELF website here.
I finish my look off with a fun lipstick. Right now I have been loving the Burt’s Bees lipsticks in Fuschia Flood and Blush Basin, the Burt’s Bees lip shimmer in Rhubarb, and the Urban Decay Revolution lipgloss in Failbait.
Now for the finished product!
I love that this looks is really natural and it is super easy and quick for the days when I’d rather sleep a few more minutes than take a lot of time to get ready.
Have a great day!
