It doesn’t have to take hours to do your makeup everyday. It takes me about twenty minutes to do my full face of makeup from prep to finish. I am writing this post to share with you my simple everyday makeup look.
prep. This step is so important. A lot of people tend to miss this step and just go full-on with their makeup. It’s so critical to get your skin ready for the makeup that’s about to be on your face.
moisturize. hydrate your face so no dry flakes and skin will be visible. This also helps reduce aging skin and wrinkles. I like to use Clinique’s Moisture Surge because it’s lightweight. It’s not greasy nor oily. For extra hydration especially in these cold months, I spray the Mac Fix Plus. For a more affordable mist, the Mario Badescu Rose Water spray is a perfect dupe.
As I let that set in my skin, I fill in my brows. Like I said before, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brown is my go-to and I use the 7 brush to apply. This brush is super small, but works great. It is not too stiff and not too fluffy.
eyes. before applying your eyeshadow it’s VERY important to prep those lids. If you don’t prep your lids, your eyeshadow will look patchy and will be very hard to blend. I like to use concealer – Wet N Wild Photofocus. This allows me to have a blank canvas. It evens out the lid color and gets rid of oily lids. I set the concealer with a white eyeshadow.
I like to use the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions palette for everyday. The colors are neutral making it appropriate for everyday looks. The palette is small enough to travel with and keep in your purse for touchups. For my lashes, I use the L’oreal Lash Paradise. This mascara is stunning and works like a high-end product. It makes my lashes look full and adds length.
face. If I wear foundation, I wear the Neutrogena Skin-Clearing Oil-Free. This makes my skin look flawless and covers my redness. I will say it again and again but this is an everyday must have! To set my foundation, I dust on the Neutrogena skin-clearing mineral powder. These products are made to help your skin and not let it break out. Why can’t every foundation be like that! I apply my foundation with a beauty blender. That makes my skin look airbrushed.
lips. The NYX slip tease has become my go-to. I love brown lip colors because they look good on my skin tone. This liquid lipstick is comfortable on my lips and does last all day.
