I love to do quick and easy looks for day to day. Especially with creamy products that’s working great. That’s why I thought I share this simple look with you. It’s everything from a quick base, over some glow to look fresh even when you’re not, to an simple eye look and a pretty deep color perfect for fall on the lips. Let’s jump right into it.
prime your face with your favorite primer (actually liquid not creamy, but I need a primer). For a perfect looking base a primer is key.
My Make Up For Ever Stick Foundation is the perfect one if I only have 5 minutes to do my makeup. I love to put it everywhere I need it the most and then blend it into the skin with a wet beauty blender.
correcting & concealing:
Getting rid of my dark circles with my NYX correct & conceal palette – perfect also for traveling. I just put it in the inner corner to brighten and conceal after that. Also blending it with the beauty sponge. Warming it up with the fingers helps with blending.
For every day I only use a little bit of cream contour – also from NYX. It’s not to warm and perfectly for a quick contour on the cheeks, nose and forehead. Blending it with the sponge as well.
blush & highlight:
With my colorpop blush I rose up the cheeks for a healthy look. Combined with a little cream highlight it’s making everybody healthy and awake looking – even when you’re not 😉
When it comes to eyeshadow, I love the creamy ones from kiko and NYX, as they are pigmented and easy to blend. As a base I use my MAC paint pot in paintery. Blending it with the finger to warm it up. Let it dry and blend the darker shadow into the crease and all over the lid. Normally I would stop here, because I love this color also on it’s own, but for a more outstanding look, use a second color. I put it directly on the middle part of the lid for more dimension. For even more dimension use a highlighter in the very middle of the lid over it. And for the perfect inner corner I use my cream highlighter again.
Finishing everything up with eyeliner, brows and lips. For my brows I used a pomade and on the lips a deep fall colored and creamy lipstick, which works perfectly with this look.
Don’t forget to set everything, so it stays put all day long – I like to use a translucent powder to set my face.
I hope this was a fun little “tutorial” or “how to” for a simple everyday look with no effort at all. This is a simple fall look, but if you don’t like to wear lipstick or want to tone it down use a nude lipstick instead.
