This is what I call my ‘no makeup’ makeup look. I rock it on a cozy weekend day. For those who think they don’t have time for makeup in the morning and leave with none (gasp!) this is for you. Appear feminine and polished without adding much time to your busy morning.
My two tricks – perfect skin & bright eyes
Step 1: Perfect skin
Start with a high quality mineral powder. I love Youngblood Natural Mineral Foundation – loose or pressed, which ever tickles your fancy. Both will leave you perfectly even and glowing in just one step. Brush it on with a big, fluffy brush. Blend well.
Step 2: Bright eyes
Start with a light, satiny shadow at the base of your lid. Blend evenly from lash line to just under crease, no higher. MAC’s gleam, retrospeck, ricepaper and naked lunch are a few of my faves.
Add a nude shadow to your upper lid, crease to brow bone. Blend well.
Curl your lashes (psst, don’t skip this step)
Apply mascara and allow to dry. Comb through lashes with a dry mascara brush and curl a second time. Apply another coat of mascara.
Steps 3&4 : Finish up with cheeks and lip
A quick brush of color on your cheek bone will do wonders. Youngblood Pressed Mineral Blush in petal or blossom are my go to colors.
Fresh pink or sheer peach lip gloss are both great matches for this look. If you are a less-is-more kind of makeup girl you have my permission to go with a balm.
