Everyday Make Up Look

Looks like a lot of make up for an everyday look right? Yes, these are basically my go to make up when I’m on the go and each one of them has a special role to achieve a natural and a no make up kind of look. Most days, I don’t have a lot of time to play around with make up because I’m a mom and I’m always chasing time. So I usually stick to a basic look, just to make myself at least put together and not look like I just got out of bed. Here are my reviews to each one of them. I’ll promise to make it short as possible.

For the Face :

Porefessional Benefit Cosmetics – A primer is the very first step and the most important thing before i apply my foundation, it conceals my big pores, takes the shine off my face and evens out uneven skin tone.

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Liquid Foundation – Its a full coverage foundation that covers up my  blemishes, acne scars and uneven skin tone. It’s buildable and not cakey. But you don’t really need a lot because it has a good coverage. You only need two pumps and you are good to go.

Cargo One Base liquid concealer – Ever since I used this concealer under my eyes, I fell in love. It blends and covers up well the creases underneath my eyes and it doesn’t look cakey. I like it that it looks natural and not look like you obviously put too much concealer underneath.

Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder – This is the holy grail, it sets your foundation really good to make you look poreless ! A friend recommended me this and gosh, I am thankful. I use it for baking and contouring when I feel like it, but most of the time for everyday look I just use a big powder brush and loosely tap on my liquid foundation to set it.

Mac Sheertone Shimmer Blush – This powder blush is not just your ordinary matte powder blush, It has some shimmer or shine in it. When light or a flash camera hits on you, the apple of your cheeks will be highlighted. It will make you look like you have high cheekbones and when you do have a high cheekbones or the illusion of having one, it makes you look youthful. I’m on my 30’s , so I’m all about trying to look youngin’ as much as possible.

For the eyes :

L’oreal Infallible The Super Slim Liquid eye liner– I have a hooded lid, so I really love this super slim liquid eyeliner to make my eyes look a bit bigger. I apply it really close to my lashes so my eyes will pop up.

Lancome Color design sensational effects eyeshadow in Mochachino (matte)– I use this to line my under eye, I like to use brown to line my under eye and black to line my upper eye, that way  the contrast will make my eyes a little bigger rather than doing both black. It makes me look more chinky instead. I applied a little bit of eyeshadow at the corner of my eye for a little depth. Nothing so dramatic here, because I’m going for an everyday look.

Lorac Pro Fiber plus mascara– It’s great for everyday look, it’s tip is easy to apply , it’s not heavy and  it doesn’t clump.

For the eye brows:

Anastasia brow pomade– I apply this to fill the inside of my brows. I like the creamy consistency, it makes it easy to apply and it looks very natural.

Mac eyebrows brow definer in Spike – I used this to shape and line the outside edge of my brows. It looks more defined when its shaped with a liner, then fill it in with brow pomade to have that natural look.

For the lips:

I’m showing 5 kinds of lip wear because these are my constant rotation for this season.  On today’s look, I’m using only Colourpop lip liner in BFF 2. It is highly pigmented and for just a lip liner, its  pretty creamy to apply.

The most time consuming for me  in this make up  routine is my eyebrows because I don’t have a perfectly shaped eyebrows due to over plucking that I did  in my younger years. So I have to take my time shaping it to make it  look natural and thick, since thick eyebrows makes you look younger. You just have to make sure to make it proportionate to your face.

I’m using Nikon D7000 in 35 mm f 1.8 lens. It is not filtered but taken with flash.

The picture below is taken with no flash photography and it’s not filtered either. Totally different from the top picture right? So there it is, my everyday make up look.
