While I love dramatic smokey eyes and playing with colors, sometimes less is more. This is my go-to look for when I don’t feel like putting on a lot of makeup but still want to look and feel as good as I do when I’m going super-glam!
P.S. – This is a great look to wear during the day, especially to work or school.
Continue reading to see a list of all of the products I used in creating this look!
Covergirl Simply Ageless Foundation in shades 210 + 205 (great cream foundation! It’s a combination of foundation and moisturizer. It’s like skincare an makeup in one. Winter favorite!)
Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Concealer in “Ivoire” (long-lasting. Doesn’t settle into fine lines around the eyes too much.)
Bobbi Brown Powder Blush in “Apricot” (matte bright pink blush)
Translucent setting powder I used was from MAC
Anastasia Brow Wiz Retractable Pencil in “Brunette” (Favorite brow pencil for the past few months!)
Urban Decay Primer Potion (keeps all eye shadows + eyeliners from creasing and moving around. If you have oily lids, you need this!)
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette — “Foxy”, a light, fleshy color with a bit of a yellow undertone, was used all over the lids to brighten them up a bit and even out pigmentation. “Tease”, a soft, warm browny-mauve shade, was used in the crease and along the lower lashline to add a bit of definition.
Clinique High Impact Mascara
Elite #18 False Lashes (In the tutorial, the ones I was using were brown but I didn’t mind as I was planning on using mascara on top of them anyway. At $2.50 a pair, they’re pretty inexpensive. I’m able to use each pair about 3-4 times before tossing them.)
Kat Von D Lipstick in “Lovecraft” (neutral rose shade that is close to the natural color of my lips, but slightly brighter. Adds a bit of life without looking like I’m really wearing lipstick. Dab the product on so you get a sheer wash of color for a natural effect.)
Nivea Kiss of Moisture Lip Balm (Inexpensive and one of the best lip balms I’ve used.)
