Hello beautiful people!
Today I will be sharing with you my everyday make up for a very simple, fresh and glowy look. This is an effortless makeup look which you can change about using these products or similar products.
This is my go to make up look and can be changed about for day time as well as evening just by switching up a lipstick, defining your contour or changing up your eyeshadow. It is long lasting and perfect for any outing.
Let’s jump straight into my daily products!!
- First thing I use after I moisturise my face is this oh so beautiful TOUCHE ÉCLAT BLUR PRIMER by YSL. At the moment I am loving this primer so much because it does what it says and blurs out all you\r pores and imperfections ready for a perfect canvas to start on. I use 1 pump of this all over my face starting with my T-Zone and it allows my make up to stay on all day without any touch ups.
- Whilst my primer is setting, I get on with doing my brows! For my eyebrows, I use this brow pencil called GOOF PROOF BROW PENCIL by BENEFIT. I use this in the shade number 3 and it glides so smoothly over my brows. This is the perfect colour for me to enhance my brows and blend very well when I want to add some little hairs using this on the beginning of my eyebrows. I then brush it out with the brush on the other side which makes life so much easier as I don’t have to 2 products in my hand when I’m doing my brows because I brush them after each stroke for a soft natural finish.
- Now that my primer has absorbed into my skin, I go in with a pump of my foundation. This is the ALL DAY LUMINOUS WEIGHTLESS FOUNDATION by NARS. My shade is PUNJAB. I have already talked about this in my previous blog post. I applied this foundation using my beauty blender for a more even and flawless finish onto my face. This was perfect as I had a full day planned and it did not smear or smudge at all. I do skip my under eye area as I will be applying more of it after I am done with doing my eyes.
- After my foundation has set well, I start on my eyes. For a natural and soft look, I am using this eyeshadow palette, WARM PALETTE by MAC. This palette is very versatile and many make up looks can be made using this palette. I first apply the colour BRULE all over my eyelid. This is a classic make up look and the bright colour will allow the crease colour to look more deep and prominent making your eyes bigger. I also use it as a matte highlight shade for the inner corner of my eyes and under my brows. After that I apply the colour SADDLE which is an orangey brown colour across my crease using a very light hand and building it up. This will ensure the colour isn’t too harsh and making use that by blending it well there will be no harsh lines. I also use this colour under my lash line to soften my make up look. Finally, I go in with an angled eyeliner brush and use the colour Dance in the Dark as a soft liner look just to make the whole look more natural without any strong colours on my face. I also use a very small amount on my lower lash line.
To make my eyes bigger and allow them to pop a little more, I apply this nude eyeliner on my bottom waterline. This is the perfect colour as its not as harsh as a white liner and doesn’t make your\ eyes smaller like a black or \a dark colour does. It looks very pretty with the blended shadows applied under it and transforms the whole eye look. This is the COLOUR DEFINITION EYELINER & KAJAL by KIKO MILANO in the shade 01. This eyeliner has a twist end no need for any sharpening.
To curl my lashes, I use this very famous eyelash curler by SHU UEMURA. This is hands down my most favourite curler of all time. I have repurchased this twice and have used it for the past 5 tears. It comes with an extra pad and I would say that each pad should be replaced every 6/9 months. I could not recommend this enough. I believe it’s a staple in you\r make up collection.
To finish off my eye look, I apply the HYPNOSE MASCARA by LANCOME. This is a very lovely mascara and makes your lashes super long and fluffy. I use it for both top and bottom lashes. It is not clumpy at all and the brush is perfect for separating your lashes. It’s not the most volumising mascara but if you would rather have longer lashes with a bit of volume, this is the mascara for you. I have stopped using waterproof mascaras because they damages my lashes and I use this one in the black colour for an enhanced look.
I don’t usually use bronzer for an everyday look, because I to use a cream contour and just blend it out so it looks very natural and nothing to strong. For this, I use this FOUNDATION STICK by BOBBI BROWN in the colour ALMOND 7. This is an orangey brown colour and I use a stroke on each side of my cheek and then blend it out with either the side of my beauty blender or a stippling brush. The colour looks so nice and natural and blend so smoothly.
To highlight my face, I apply this cream highlighter called MOON BEAM by BENEFIT. I have used this as well as HIGH BEAM for a almost 7 years and I can definitely say either one of the colours or both are a must have in the make up collection. I remember once in high school, my friend was going through my make up bag and she took this out and said “this nail polish isn’t good, doesn’t` work properly” I couldn’t believe she had just said that. I’m glad we’re past that and now she’s definitely knows her stuff. Anyway, I use a stoke on the highest pointe of my cheek and i blend it out with my fingers or a beauty blender. The gold particles in this looks so stunning when the light reflects on it and it look so illuminating and natural.
For my lips, I pair these two lip products which I know have been hyped a lot but I still love them. I use the MAC LlPLINER in the colour WHIRL to line my lips and blend and then I use the MAC LIPSTICK in the colourVELVET TEDDY all over my lips and gives the perfect nude/brown lips which suit most people as a natural lip shade. I don’t usually over line my lips but if I wanted to, this would be the perfect shade for me.
To finish off this whole make up look, I use this MAC FIX PLUS face spray inthe scent YUZU. This was in a recent collection they had and I am hoping they bring it back. It is the same formula as the original FIX PLUS, however, this smells so refreshing and so hydrating. I use this all over my face just to keep it looking extra hydrated and I also use this before my foundation and after my primer, just to combat any winter flakes.
Aaaand that’s it for my simple make up look! Thank you for reading lovelies!
