This is not the typical makeup tutorial that you would find on Youtube or on blogs with a demonstration for every single step. It is so simple and easy that I can do it with my eyes closed! This is the type of look that takes you no more than 10 minutes to do it.
Now, you've obviously seen all of these products on the blog already as they are my go-to products.
Before you flip out and start asking yourself how on earth is this an simple look with that amount of products?? Allow me to introduce you to the art of alternating. I always try to alternate the look by using different eyeshadows or different mascaras. I know, it isn't going to make a huge difference for whoever's looking at me... But I do it to avoid boring myself with a mechanical routine.
With my fingers, I start by applying a layer of Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer all over my face and MAC's sudio finish concealer under my eyes, around my nose and on unwanted blemishes. Then I powder my face with the Stay Matte by Rimmel using a F30 brush by Sigma.
Wether I'm wearing eyeshadow or not, I always have UD's Primer Potion on my lids to avoid creasing. Over the primer, I apply only one color of eyeshadow all over the lid. I always alternate between Brule and All That Glitters, both by MAC. I love using the E55 for this step. If I want to add a bit of drama, this brown gel liner from Maybelline does the job! Finish off with a good coat of mascara. Again, I alternate between The Falsies Drama and One by One, both by Maybelline, which I accidentally forgot to show in the picture above.
Lately, I've been using Pinch O' Peach everyday as it is part of my Project 10 Pan list (I want to finish it up so badly!!). My favorite blush brush is this one. And, of course, I can't stay away from my new obsession: highlighting! I've been attached to Soft and Gentle by MAC and this highlighting brush by Sigma ever since I bought them.
I always try to keep it simple when it comes to lips. If it's day time I would throw on simple lip balm like this one or I would use Brave by MAC. If it's night time, I would go for something a bit darker like Plumful by MAC.
Et voila! Sounds complicated when you read it... But it really isn't.
