This is very simple makeup for everyday wear, i used minimum amount but it looks gorgeous and very simple. I bought some new products lately from Sephora and i used some of them for this look.
These are the products i used for this look, when i wanted to take a picture using my camera it was out of battery so i had to use my iPhone instead, the colors look a bit darker than real.
I will skip the step of moisturizing my eyes, face and applying eye concealer. But if you’re wondering i use Bobbi Brown Eye Repair Cream, for my face i use Neutrogena oil-free moisture for combination skin, and MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC35, yes i have serious dark undereyes!!
The first product is a tinted moisturizer by Urban Decay called Urban Defense with SPF20, the shade i used is Bodyguard. I love this tinted moisturizer, i think it is better than Laura Mercier, which by the way cannot find the right shade for me now, i am lost between Sand and Bisque, but both dont look natural on me. Bodyguard is perfect on me, i loved it.
I applied the tinted moisturizer using a Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki-F80 brush, i usually keep this brush to apply face primers and tinted moisturizers. For a natural finish look i powdered my face with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural using a MAC 150 brush.
I kept my eye makeup simple, and if i tend to just eyeline my eyes or wear nothing but mascara i prefer wearing MAC eyeshadow in Brule on all over my lid, this color matches my skin tone and it shows like i am wearing nothing, by wearing an eyeshadow it will prevent from the concealer and powdered area from creasing. I used Sigma blending brush-E25 to apply Brule. If you want you can add an eyeshadow primer before.
Then i used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil in Rehab to line my top and lower lash line (just like using an eyeliner) then i smudged it a little bit using a Sigma SS219 brush (old numbering). It should look somehow like a cateye and a little bit winged out but since the color is light it wont show that much it will just give a shadowy background. Notice that this pencil is creamy but it will dry out quickly and will last long time, so its better to immediately work with it before it sets and then you cannot smudge it properly as wanted.
I waterlined my eyes with black liner (yes black liner!! which i rarely do!!) using an Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Zero. I also tight lined my eyes (which by lining the upper lash waterline).
Finally for the eyes i curled my lashes using a Shu Uemura lash curler and applied MAX FACTOR False Lash Effect Fusion Volume & Length mascara. i made sure to add a good amount of layers.
For the cheeks i used a beautiful cream blush from Too Faced called Full Bloom Cheek & Lip Creme Color in Tea Rose, its really beautiful. I like wearing cream blushes using a MAC 188 brush. The small duo-fiber brush makes me control the color more instead of the big one which will smudge will only smudge the color on my cheeks.
On the lips i used no liner just the Rimmel lipstick by Kate Moss in 08.
