Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a great week so far! Alright, let's get into it, shall we? Remember that post about all the goodies in my makeup bag!? Well I figured I'd do a post of my go to look, for which I pretty much use all the beauty products I mentioned on that post. Let's get started- this is sort of a mini tutorial post of my go to, everyday no makeup-makeup because you know, #momlife, I don't have time to do full on face everyday and I feel this look is perfect for anyone who wants something fast, easy, simple, not just mommies!
Alright, here we go!
Step one, I start by washing, moisturizing my face. Most times when I do this "go to" makeup look I do not wear any foundation. So I go straight to concealing under my eyes, using my all time favorite, Tarte's Shape Tape concealer. Lately I've been mixing my light-medium with light because I feel it gives me a little more brightness without making it too light.
I used the L'Oreal concealer beauty sponge, I don't think I'm going to be using it again, it was very flimsy, I felt like it didn't give me that flawless blend I usually get when I use my other beauty sponges, and I feel like it drank all the product.
Step two, I've been loving the KKW Beauty Contour stick, it is perfect if you're looking for a subtle contour. It is also very easy to blend which is always a plus (yes I'm very aware of the price, and how little product you get, but I wanted it and haven't regretted buying). Anyway, I use the matte highlighter to highlight my nose, forehead and chin.
I used the Essence Beauty Bronzer for the first time. I used it to set the cream contour and it worked out beautifully. I love that it didn't make me look muddy or too orangey.
Step three, I don't really do much with my eyebrows when I do my "go to, everyday" look. (btw, excuse the brows, they need to get threaded soon lol). Anyway, I use my Anastasia Eyebrow Gel. This is my go to because it keeps my crazy brows in place all day!
For this post I used the new L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara. I really liked it, it gave me a bit of volume and length, but it didn't wow me honestly! I think I will be sticking to my little combination though.
I used the NYX Faux Whites liner in Seashell for the first time, it is so pretty, very creamy and stays on for a long time! I am very happy I bought it!
Excuse the ugly faces! lol
Step four, can't leave without applying some blush! This blush is my go to. My ride or die if you will.
Step five, guys!!! I have been so obsessed with this lip combination! I mean OBSESSED! I line my lips with the NYX pencil in pale pink (btw, great dupe for Mac's Spice liner!), then apply the NYX Simply Pink in First Base, and then top it with the new Maybelline Matte Ink in Loyalist. I usually stir away from nudes, but this combination has become my favorite lately!
Step six, girllll you know I can't leave my house without highlighting! I use my favorite, Jouer's in Citrine.
Lastly don't forget to set all those powders! Although I didn't use any foundation, I still like to use a bit of setting spray so that my face doesn't look too powdery. Trust me, when you spray and then press it with your beauty sponge, all the powders literally melt into your skin and powdery look begone! I love using my favorite, the Urban Decay All Nighter. This setting spray is amazing, doesn't make my skin feel like I sprayed cement on my face lol.
And Voilà! This is my go to, everyday no makeup-makeup for when I'm just running errands, going to the mall, taking the boys to the park or simply visiting a friend/family.
I like dressing up my "mom bun" with cute bandanas!
I figured I'd include here one of my favorite basic, go to outfit, when I don't wear workout gear all day of course lol.
What I love about summer time, I can wear my sunnies pretty much everyday!
Ready to take on the world with my little monkeys en-tow.
Alright, that is it beauties! I hope you like this little "tutorial" post. Do you have a go to makeup look!? Oh and by the way, I am in no way, shape or form a makeup artist, as you can see hehe, this is just me doing something I enjoy very much! 😜
P.S. This probably took me 10-15 minutes to achieve and that's also because I usually get a couple of interruptions, aka my tiny humans 😊
I hope you guys like this post, please share it, it would mean the world if you did!
