Hi everyone! So, as you can probably tell from reading my blog, I really love makeup. I wear makeup every single day, and I don’t ever leave the house without at least a little bit on. I thought it would be fun to share what I do when I am in a rush and have to get ready in a flash. I realize that this is a lot of makeup, even for a “no makeup” makeup look, but this is just what I like. I also wear this type of look if I am just going to a play date or a quick errand, like grocery shopping or something.
Tinted Moisturizer – The first thing that I like to do is take one pump of my moisturizer, (I am trying out this one by Bare Minerals) and one pump of my MAC Pro Longwear concealer in NW15. I just pump these on to the back of my hand and mix them together, and then dot it all over my face. I usually just blend it into my skin with my fingers. It gives a light coverage and evens out my skin tone.
Conceal – The next thing that I do is take this Loreal True Match Concealer Crayon in W-1-2-3 (I believe it’s the lightest shade) and I use this to cover up any blemishes that I may have. I then take my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Treatment Concealer in the Brighten shade, and dot this underneath my eyes and blend it in with my ring finger. Since this concealer is salmon toned, it disguises my blue toned under eye circles.
Blush – I use this Nars cream blush in Enchanted for my cheeks, and you can use a brush or fingers to apply this.
Powder – I apply my MAC Studio Fix powder after I apply the blush because you never want to put a cream product over a powder. I only apply this powder to my t-zone to keep my face matte.
Eyebrows – I use the Anastasia brow powder duo in Brunette to fill in my brows by taking a small angled brush and mixing both of the colors together. I apply this to my brows by using short strokes and starting on the ends of my brows and working my way in.
Eyeshadow – For a neutral, quick look, I use MAC shadows in All That Glitters, Wedge, and Vanilla. The first shade I take is All That Glitters, which is on the first row, and the 3rd shade from the left, and I apply it all over my lid. Next, I take this matte brown shade,Wedge, which is on the second row, and second to the left. I take this color and put it on my crease for some definition. The last shade is Vanilla, which is on the top row, and first from the left, and I put this color on my browbone as a highlight.
Eyeliner– I take this black pencil from NARS in the color Via Veneto, and line my upper water line with this. This is something that I do just to make my lashes look fuller.
Mascara – I take my Tarte eyelash curler and curl my eyelashes, and then I apply some mascara to my top and bottom lashes. I am trying out Jordana’s Best Lash Extreme mascara.
Lips – The last thing I do for this look is use a lip crayon. I like these because you don’t have to bother with a gloss, these give color and are glossy. This is Soap and Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Plum Jam.
And that is it for my “no makeup” makeup look! I realize that this is a lot of products, but it only takes about ten minutes to do! Here are some pictures of this look on my face.
