No Makeup - Makeup LookWednesday, December 04, 2013
With the holidays just around the corner, I thought it would be good to share with you guys what my no makeup, makeup looks is. This is perfect for everyday wear, getting some holiday shopping in, traveling for the holidays, or just whenever really.
What I like the most about this look, is how natural it is, yet I still look decent and there are no panda eyes in site!
Let's get started!
Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream
-I use the Combination to Oily formula and it works very well on my oily skin. I do have to blot or use powder, but nothing over the top. I would say this BB cream gives a light to medium coverage with a natural finish. I have a lot of freckles and they are still noticeable when I wear this, hence the natural finish. If you're looking for a ton of coverage, this BB cream is probably not the best choice.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
-For my awful dark circles and any blemishes, I reach for this concealer. I do tend to switch up concealers, but I'm really enjoying this one.
ELF's Studio Blush in Mellow Mauve
-For a bit of color I like to go for a muted blush, nothing too shimmery.
Victoria Jackson Eyebrow Pencil in Taupe
-I don't think a look is complete without filled in brows, personally. I think it ties your whole look together and they frame your face so nicely. I use this pencil I got in an Ipsy bag awhile back. I just lightly fill my brows, I don't use any concealer to carve them out like I normally do.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Nude
-For no makeup, makeup days I skip eyeliner and use this nude liner on my waterline.
CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara
-Mascara is a must for me. I've used this mascara for years, it gives great volume and separates the lashes well.
It Girl Cosmetics Lip Balm in Blue Mint
-I'm a lip balm junkie, I always have some on me. This one smells delicious!
Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle
-I don't like to use anything bold, so I reach for something that's my lip color but better. Pink Truffle is it for me, I'm obsessed with Revlon's Lip Butters. [Want to see swatches of the colors I own?]
And here's the finished look, simple and natural.
I hope you enjoyed reading this, and will try this look out someday.
What are some of your no makeup, makeup go-to products?
Until next time beauties!
-I got maybe 2 hours of sleep last night, coffee and concealer will be my best friends today.
-I was contemplating on doing No Buy December, but then I remembered I already failed!
-I'm a bit behind on blog reading and replying to comments, my apologies, I hope to get caught up soon!
