In case if you haven’t noticed yet in most of my photos, I usually go for the no-makeup makeup look. Although I love to experiment, it’s my go-to everyday look. It’s fresh. It’s simple. It’s youthful. Agree? And as promised in my previous style post, I’ll share my makeup look in those photos.
Honestly, I don’t have one specific procedure to get that no-makeup makeup look. Usually, I use different products, but I always concentrate on the base. It should be flawless and looks like real skin. I just normally use powder foundation, especially on an easy casual day. I always avoid thick foundation since it looks unnatural. For this look though I tried the MAC Studio Waterweight Foundation, the latest addition to MAC’s foundation line. It is lightweight, has silky finish, and has enough coverage. I believe I talked about it briefly in this post: http://lushangel.com/2015/09/22/mac-haute-dogs-collection/. I was able to test it during the launch of MAC Haute Dogs Collection and I got very curious since then. I’ll do a separate product review on this soon.
Then, I used a cream blush in coral shade for that natural flush. To set the liquid foundation and cream blush, I used a lighter shade of powder since the MAC Studio Waterweight Foundation I have is quite dark for my skin tone. (TIP: If your liquid or cream foundation is dark or light on you, set it with a lighter or darker shade of powder to match your skin tone.)
For the eyes, I opted for Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Sparkle in Opal. I didn’t apply any powder eye shadow on top anymore since I just wanted a wash of color and a subtle sparkle on the center of my lids to brighten up my eyes. Then, I applied brown eyeliner close to my lashes for a natural look.
Usually, I use a light-colored lipstick for my lips. This time though I tried Bobbi Brown’s limited edition Extra Lip Tint in Bare Pink. It’s not really a lipstick but more of a balm/gloss.
