Hello Beautiful People!
Today I’m doing something new here on the blog, a makeup tutorial! This very well may be one of the only makeup looks to ever to go up on this blog because I’m not well versed in makeup, but hey, I wanted to try it.
Since I’ve been trying to wear less makeup recently (Or none at all), I thought I would share the minimal makeup look I’ve been wearing on almost a daily basis.
There are a lot of pictures in this post and it seems a bit excessive to me, but I guess this is how makeup tutorials go on a blog. Without further delay, here is my everyday makeup look.
Here I am starting with a fresh face, no makeup.
**Obviously I forgot to photograph a step because well, I’m human, and so for some reason, I actually fill in my eyebrows first. I think I do it first because I usually forget if I save it for last (Like I did while taking photos for this post) and my brows are much too important to skip.
I use the blonde eyebrow pencil by Mary Kay. If I don’t fill in my brows, I feel like they are almost nonexistent because I’m so pale and my brows are so blonde. So somedays, my brows are the only thing I do before I walk out the door!
I like to start off with either my favorite light but high coverage foundation by Mary Kay, or BB cream, my favorite being Maybelline’s version. It’s perfect for the summer because it is light coverage and has SPF in it to help protect your face from the sun. Since it’s in the BB cream, it’s like your makeup has a secret superpower. You look cute but are also protected. It’s a win-win.
Next, I will either add concealer if I have any pimples or red spots to cover up, but most days I usually skip this step and go right on ahead and set my makeup as is with my favorite powder by Revlon.
This powder is one of the only ones that hasn’t caused my face to break out and doesn’t make my makeup look cakey after applying. It leaves my face looking very matte, but not over the top.
One of my favorite concealers is the FaceStudio Master Conceal by Maybelline, but other days I use the Covergirl FixStick concealer, or for extra high coverage, Nyx’s Color Jar concealer. It all depends on the day.
Next, I’ll add blush (Which my mother tells me I don’t really know how to apply it correctly, so sorry out there to my beauty experts, I’m working on it) to my cheeks and possibly the rest of my face to make me less of a pasty ghost when needed because I have not yet gotten to sit out and get some sun.
Yes, I have to strategically sit out or otherwise, I don’t tan ever. Even if I burn, I go right back to pale. I just want to have glowy summery skin sometimes! Is that too much to ask? My skin seems to think so.
If I’m feeling myself that day, I might decide to put on some highlighter, which believe it or not, I actually know how to apply! Don’t ask me how I can apply highlight properly but not blush because I have no answers for you, but at least I can do something right.
I decided not to on this specific day, but this is my favorite highlighter for when I do. The stick version is also amazing and it is my mom’s favorite. It’s got the Mama Bear seal of approval so it must be good!
Then I’ll prime my eyes with my favorite cream eyeshadow.
This is the only part of my makeup look that changes almost every day. Sometimes this pearly nude color is the only thing I’ll put on my eyelids, but other days I’ll mix it up and do something a little fancier.
My favorites are either a gold eyeshadow, a purple-ish maroon eyeshadow, or the look I’m about to show you.
This was part of an e.l.f. cosmetics eyeshadow kit I got for Christmas (It’s been in the makeup bag a while that’s why it’s not looking too great), but these are my favorite colors.
I start by applying the color on the right in my crease and the outer corner of my eye. I then take the shimmery color and put it at the inner corner of my eye and I put it under my lower lash line to make eyes pop.
Next, I curl my lashes and then go in with my favorite mascara, the Ultimate Mascara by Mary Kay, and apply it to my upper and lower lashes.
Finally, I’ll apply a lip color. This changes daily. Somedays I don’t even wear a lip color because I constantly have to apply moisturizer to my dry lips. I don’t feel like it’s worth it to put color on dry lips. For me, it flakes right off.
This is one of my favorite lip colors. It was a limited edition color from Mary Kay, but it is the perfect natural looking pink. I’m not much of a bold lip lady. I typically go with lighter pinks, corals, and the occasional red.
Here is the finished look.
So that’s it for my first ever makeup look here on the blog! I hope you liked it, and if you did let me know in the comments! And also if any of my beauty lovers have any suggestions or recommendations for me for future beauty posts I’d love the advice!
