Today is a holiday here in Sri Lanka so it’s a long weekend for us! I have no plans for this weekend save this one family lunch and I plan to chillax at home the rest of the time, trying new make-up looks and blogging 😉
One of the looks I tried today was this really simple one, (but requires about 7 products + 2 brushes) that actually looks effortless and natural.
Here’s what I used:
I started with: (from left to right)
1. A thin layer of MAC Mineralise Concealer under eyes (in NW35- I generally use NW25, but I’m back to an orange-y tan after a 10-day holiday with my sweetheart)
2. Applied another thin layer of MAC Studio Finish Concealer in a lighter colour (NW25 in this case) to blend and smooth my eye bags. Adding a lighter shade of concealer right on top of the eye bags can create an illusion of smooth, flat under-eyes.
3. A moderate layer of DD cream (BB cream would do as well) on the rest of the face. (I love this Ceres DD cream my boyfriend gave me. It’s a Turkish brand but I haven’t been able to find it online 😦 )
* I didn’t use powder today… The DD cream I used looks pretty dewy and that was the look I aimed for. (and I’m staying at home doing literally nothing, so I’m hoping my makeup won’t move a lot 😉 )
4. To fill my brows, I used Colour Essence liner in Deep Brown.
5. I used MAC ombré blush in Ripe Peach on my cheeks for a dewy finish. For a complete review of this product, please click here. I love how this blush can be doubled up as a highlighter too… It’s pretty easy and quick for simple looks like this. I used the little pink brush from Guerlain mini meteorites travel set to apply this.
6. For lips I used MAC Viva Glam V lipstick paired with Boldly Bare lipliner. These two are quite universal colours
So here’s the complete look:
I wish I could add mascara… My eyes are literally bare today (it feels so abnormal to me because I love eye make-up) but I had to go this way as I’m recovering from an eye infection…
On another note I did not focus on covering each and every tiny spot on my face. I wanted to leave it looking as natural as possible, so it’s not flawless.
And that’s about it… It was pretty easy and took less than five minutes to apply everything… Hope you liked it!
I’ll see you tomorrow with a completely different post! (small hint- it’s about swimming pools 🙂 )
