No body wants to take time to do their makeup every day, especially when you work early in the mornings! so i’m gonna show you my take on a natural, neutral, versatile, easy-to-transition, no makeup make up look.
this look is natural for the day, neutral so you can mix it to any lip color, versatile cause you can transition it to a night time without any problems, and easy to transition so you can change your whole entire face with a few steps (i’ll write about them tomorrow).
starting off with the base..
-Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream (mine is in Medium)
-TheBalm Sexy Mama Translucent Powder.
The base is really easy, all you have to do is apply the BB cream everywhere if wanted, or you can apply it on the problematic area (for me, it’s under eyes) and if you wanted to use concealer go ahead, but this is my take on the look.
BB cream is pretty light on the skin, and also you won’t have to use primer underneath, and since this BB cream has SPF 30 in it, it will add extra protection, but you still need to apply your sun protection.
Translucent Powder, will set the areas you wanted to set, and it will giva sheer finish to the face so it won’t look cakey. and it wil also prevent oiling up through out the day.
-Benefit Brow Zings Eyebrow Kit.
-Sephora Eyelash Curler.
-Benefit Roller Lash Mascara.
I always do my brows, even if i’m not wearing a makeup, my brows, make me look presentable, and ready to face the world, so this Benefit kit, has a brow wax, which is great, never dries out, and a powder side, which is amazing, and it’s so finely milled that it won’t cake up over the wax.
you can skip you curler and just leave your lashes as they are, but i always suggest curling your lashes when you apply mascara, they will make your lash life better, and you can curl your lashes without mascara, i used to do it in school all the time.
if you wanted to have a defined eyes, apply mascara, i’m not suggesting every day, but if you have something you’ll be expecting through the night, apply it.
Benefit Roller Lash is amazing for an everyday wear, because it separates the lashes, and it’s black and lift them up, and it does the work for you.
Last but not least, Cheek & Lips..
-Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks (Shade 6 Powder Pink)
-Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Butter.
the pot rouges are formulated for lips and cheeks, with a creamy texture, to have a glowing cheeks, and to prevent dry lips, the color (6 Powder Pink) is great for everyday, since it’s not overpowering, and it’s versatile to transition it along the day.
the lip butter is great for an everyday wear, and also to hydrate your lips for the lipstick application if you got something afterwards, maybe at night..
so, now you can head out the door, looking presentable, having all possibilities in mind.
cause remember, life can in a blink, or scientifically 0.1 second.
expect everything; but not too high.
