Everyday Look - FOTD

Tuesday, 19 April 2011

Recently I've taken to going for a minimal makeup look, as Summer is looming (so I'd like a more natural look) and partly because my husband complains when I spend a while doing makeup. So of late I've cut out eyeshadow, which only really shaves a minute or two off my makeup regime, but every minute counts eh?
Also, looking at the poll I conducted on my facebook page (here), most of the votes had been for the natural/everyday look, so here's one that I use. I tend to like a pop of colour on my lips when I'm wearing such a minimal look, so for this look I used OCC lip tar in Anime, but for an all natural look, you can use browns or peaches =)

Products used:
> UDPP in Sin
> Eyeliner (either MAC fluidline, UD 24/7 eyeliner or Ink for Eyes in Zero, or Sleek Inkpot!)
> Khuraira ACC in Light 
> Dior Iconic mascara
> Sleek blush in Sunrise
> OCC lip tar in Anime 

I used UDPP in Sin all over the eyelid, up to the brow bone. I then used UD 24/7 eyeliner in Zero for the topliner and bottom. After applying concealer to under the eyes, I used Dior Iconic mascara for top and bottom lashes, followed by the Sunrise blush by Sleek on the cheeks. I chose this colour cos it's a bronzer-type shade, but Rose Gold is also a good choice for a natural everyday look, just with a bit of gold flecks for some shimmer.
After using Vaseline on the lips, I added OCC lip tar in Anime to the lips for a pop of colour.

Et voila:
What do you think of this simple look? I think it's very wearable and for most skin tones aswell as Sin is a neutral shimmery colour.
Let me know your thoughts/suggestions for more natural looks!

    @ susalie, I tend to recommend Sin PP to people who like neutral colours on their eyelids. Sin PP isn't as well known as the original PP, but I do like the fact that it saves time for an everyday look as well as being a base for days when you have time for eyeshadow. A great little multitasker!
