I know that the trend these days is for everyone to have on a full face of makeup and show their skills to the best of their abilities.. I mean what is makeup without a full on winged liner, contour, and of course a whole lot of highlighter? Personally, I don’t have anything against that kind of look at all because it’s a beautiful look! However, on an everyday basis I can’t get myself to stick to such a look because of how time consuming and static it looks for my routine.
The makeup I like to wear is pretty minimalistic, although some might argue its too much as well. I like to start off with, of course, prepping my skin with a hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen to add that natural glow and luminosity to my face. Sometimes just putting on a cream in the morning is what wakes up my face. Then, I like to add a pop of blush around my cheekbones to add dimension and a flush of color and life. Sometimes I like to add a lip color as well, so I opt for either a really long wearing lipstick or a liquid lipstick.
For this particular day, I chose to wear the Milani Illuminating blush because it’s a beautiful natural light pink with a bit of a sheen, and I wore the Makeup Forever Lip Liner in 2C (which is a beautiful brownish pink natural color with a super smooth creamy formula and long wearing power). On top of that lip liner, I added the Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in the color “Bow n Arrow”, which looks beautiful on top of a pinky base. I would say it’s my perfect nude. I also added my hoola bronzer by benefit to add more dimension to my face, which I really enjoy doing lately. One of the standout products for me was definitely the Anastasia Contour/Face brush, because it’s perfect for blush and contour so I don’t need a lot of brushes to do my look – just one. The best part about this makeup look is how easy it is to just swipe of from my face at night!
Thank you so much for reading! What’s your makeup go to look like? I’d love to know! 🙂
