Today I’m sharing my every day makeup look. This is my go to makeup look that I wear on most days. It takes me about 10-15 minutes to do. I love that this look is neutral and very easy to do. I change it up with different lipsticks depending on what I am wearing. Let’s jump into it!
(I apologize in advance for all my weird faces! I was doing my makeup and John was taking pictures. I had no idea I made so many weird faces, lol!)
Always curl the eyelashes! This step that only takes a few seconds makes a huge difference! It opens up the eyes and makes them look awake and bright.
Using my ring finger I apply Becca under eye brightening primer. Blend it from outer corner to inner corner. Make sure not apply to much because it can crease through out the day if it’s to heavy.
Using a Sigma f80 kabuki brush I’m applying Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation (my all time fave foundation). I’m wearing shade 2. I first press the foundation into my skin then buff it out. Applying the foundation this way creates an airbrushed look.
I use Urban Decay naked concealer, in shade light warm, apply this under the eye from outer to inner corner and on the eyelid. This is an amazing concealer! It’s light weight with full coverage and works as an eyeshadow primer on the eyelid. Use a damp beauty blender to blend the concealer. I bring my concealer down a little bit on the inner corner of the eye, making a v-shape on the face. Then set the whole face with your powder of choice.
Moving onto eyes… I’m using the Becca eyeshadow palette. It’s all cool toned matte shades. I love the colors of this palette so much! They look so natural. Using a Sigma E40 brush with the 2nd from the left shadow and blend it out above the crease (this will be your transition shade). Then using Sigma E35 bush and the middle eyeshadow color apply in the crease. Using windshield wiper motions in the entire crease. Then Sigma E25 brush use 2nd from right shadow and apply in the outer corner of the eye. Pick up the first Sigma brush and blend out the entire eye and shadows. Using 3 different brushes and shadows will create a layered and a more dimensional look.
I’m using Dior eyeliner and line my waterline just on upper lash line. Then small dots and dashes of liner on the lower lash liner. Using a pencil brush and the darkest shadow color I am smudging out the liner on top and bottom. Spend some time smudging and blending this out. You want it to look buffed and smoked out. Depending on how much liner you put on will depend on how dark or light this looks. Using a pencil brush and the middle and 2nd from left shadow colors and blend out the bottom lash line. I want to create the same color dimension as the eyelid. Then I grab any highlight eyeshadow color and apply in the inner corner of the eye and just under the brows.
Mascara is a must! I have a very specific way of applying my mascara. I use 2 mascaras, Too Faced better than sex and Dior iconic overcurl. I first apply the Too Faced mascara. From the base of the lashes to the tip and coat the front and back of the lashes. I apply many coats, I keep applying until I like the way my lashes look. This mascara works wonders on the lashes because it has fibers to thicken and lengthen. But like any mascara with fibers it can get clumpy when applying and flake during the day. Enter Dior iconic overcurl! The Dior brush separates and fluffs the lashes, getting rid of any clumpyness. And it seals in the fibers, so no flakes all day long!
side tip for applying mascara: If you get mascara of your face, eyes, where ever, (like I do almost every time) let it sit there and dry for several minutes then it will flake right off with a q-tip. If you try to rub it off right away it will only smear and then you will have to redo that area of makeup.
Next is brows. I use Anastasia brow wiz in soft brown. I fill in my brows in the thin areas and lightly fill in the whole brow to make it even. Using the spooly on the other end to blend it out. Then I always use Anastasia clear brow gel so my brows stay in place all day.
Last is the face. Some times I do a light contour on the cheeks and some times I skip it (depending on time). Using a big fluffy brush I apply bronzer. I’m using Hourglass ambient bronzer. This bronzer is the perfect glowing bronzer that makes the face look like you spent the afternoon at the beach. Then blush, NARS orgasm. And of course Becca champagne pop highlight to the top of the cheekbones, nose, cupids bow. Set the entire face with Urban Decay chill makeup setting spray. This will give a glowing look and keep your makeup from moving all day.
Finish off with lipstick. This makeup is so neutral you can wear pretty much any lipstick you want. Recently I’ve been obsessed with Buxom guilty angel lipstick. It’s the perfect neutral pink shade.
