I never wear the same makeup two days in a row but I do have two or three go to looks I’m using on a fairly regular basis. One of them is a matte brown eye. It’s perfectly acceptable for work and it can be glammed up, or quickly turned into a smokey eye, if you want to go out. This is how I create one of my go to looks.
Lately my nose has been greasy so I’ve been using the Wayne Goth Method of applying foundation. It is simply powder before foundation. I didn’t use primer today and applied Your Minerals Sweden Translucent Powder directly onto my skin. I then brushed on my Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Porcelain. I cover my entire face and neck with both of these.
Next I cover up my undereyes using the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer. I blend it in with a beauty sponge and then use the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer to cover up a few spots and to highlight my nose and cuspids bow. Again blending with the aping. I finish this part of my face by setting everything with Physician’s Formula Mineral Correcting Powder.
Next I fill in my brows. I’ve been using the Chella Brow Pencil in Taupe since it came in my Boxycharm and have really been liking it. It definitely has a more natural feel than the powder I had been using. I use a spooley to even everything out and finish with my Chella Brow Setting Gel.
I did all of my eyes with the Stila Eyes Are The Window Mind palette but before I started by priming with Wet N Wild Fergie Eye Primer. After I did that I put Perception all through my create and part way up my brow bone. I love an orangey, warm transition color so I definitely didn’t hold back and packed the color on.
I completed my eye look using Colourpop Eyeliner in No Shame, curl my lashes, and out on Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.
I used Revlon’s Powder Blush in Classy Coral to do my blush. I’ve always put my blush on my cheek bones to accent them. My puffy cheeks look pudgier if I put it on my apples. Maybe this is wrong, maybe not, but it’s one thing my Mama taught me that I listen to. I used Looxi Beauty’s Aurora Highlighter in Pandora on my cheek bones, bridge of my nose, cupid’s bow, and tear ducts.
Finally I put on my lipstick. Today I used Colourpop’s Ultra Satin Lipstick in Toolips because I wanted a little more character on my lips but if I were working today I probably would have done a nude or soft pink. I finish everything off with Urban Decay Setting Spray.
