Now I’m not saying that I wear make up every day because the truth is, I almost never wear makeup Monday through Friday. However, I wanted to share the makeup look that I wear on the weekends during the day if I want to look put together. It could very easily be an everyday makeup look because it’s not too heavy or over the top, it’s really light and casual. If you want to see the makeup look I wear on a regular day, then keep reading!
To start, I rediscovered my Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance Primer for a glowy look. I love how it made my skin look! Next I use my Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation in 322 Warm Beige for foundation and My Too Faced Born This Way Concealer under my eyes in the shade Natural Beige. I like to use my hands to apply my foundation and concealer recently, so that I use less product and I feel like it gives me a really smooth finish. To set everything I use my Laura Mercier Translucent powder, my absolute favorite setting powder and the only one I’ll use!
For my bronzer, I always use the Too Faced Dark Chocolate Soleil bronzer, not so much to contour, but to just warm up my face, especially in the winter. For blush, I really love using the color Songbird from Becca lately. It’s such a pretty flush of color on the cheeks. I don’t really use highlighter anymore, especially not for a day time look so we’re skipping that this time!
For my eyebrows, I always use my Anastasia Brow Definer in Ebony and set them with a clear mascara. I like this to fill my brows in better than a thin pencil because I already have full brows, so they don’t need to be filled in very precisely.
On my eyelids, I used my Morphe 35G palette again! I am really loving this palette. You can do so much with it and I think as far as eyeshadow palettes go, it’s one of my best purchases. I used the color Sandy all over as my base, the color Deserted on my lid and then Toasted on the outer third. I used the same brush that had the color Sandy on it to go back in and blend everything in together to make it really smooth. On my inner corner to brighten it up, I used a pretty shimmery color called Glaze. Finally, I finished off my eyes with my Diorshow Lash Primer and Volume Mascara then my L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara. I sprayed my face with the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray, which is my tried and true favorite. On my lips, I used my all time favorite lipstick by Urban Decay in the color 1993. The prettiest, retro brown color on the market in my opinion.
