Everyday Makeup – for when you don’t want a full face.

This is the first time I’ve written a post like this, it won’t be the last, so please bear with me as I stumble through my first few. The other day I created an everyday makeup look for my friend. Today I’m going to share it with you today. The one request I had was to make her eyes pop. Since she has blue eyes I used the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette as it has the warm tones that would do this!

I started by Chases all over the lid and then a little of Low Blow in the crease. Since Elora has slightly hooded eyes I mixed He Devil and EN FUEDO together for the outer corner of the eye. But rather than taking it up as I would with a different eye shape. I focused the colour along the lash line in the outer corner. Then to finish off I place a little of Once to the inner corner. I wanted to create a subtle highlight, but nothing majorly shimmery.

All the products used within this makeup look.

Elora doesn’t wear a lot of makeup I didn’t want to use foundation, instead, I used concealer under the eye and finished the whole look off with lipstick. The one I used was from Bobbi Brown, I like using these lipsticks for a more natural look. They go on relatively clear, more like a lip balm than a lipstick. They also then change colour reacting with the pH of the wearer’s skin. Making it very natural.

The final look for this post.

What is your goto makeup look? Is this something you might wear? I know the colours aren’t traditionally ‘natural’ but I think when used in the right way they can make a really nice, everyday makeup look.
