Easy, Everyday Makeup Tutorial

As I’ve gotten a little older my focus when it comes to cosmetics has definitely changed. During college (when I first really started getting into makeup) I was all about wearing bright colors and trying any and every look that caught my eye. I got all my inspiration from watching YouTube tutorials and copying what celebs were wearing on the red carpet. It was so much fun and I definitely do miss playing with new products and keeping up with all the new beauty collections.

After a spring of hardly wearing any makeup (I explain here) I’ve now gotten back into a daily routine where I use the same variation of products that I trust and love. For daytime I like to keep things quick and simple. In the tutorial below you’ll see that sometimes I’ll skip steps and I trend to gravitate towards products I can apply directly with my fingers – so much easier! I’ve also found that cool-toned shadows – specifically pinks and purples – work best for my coloring so I will always wear those shades on my eyes. If you have brown eyes or a darker skin tone you may find that warmer tone shadows – bronze, gold, moss greens – will flatter your eyes. The trick is to not be afraid to test new products – it’s taken me a few years to find what works best for me!

What I wear:
Face: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Matte concealer, Cargo bronzer, Benefit Posietint

Eyes: Inglot palette (similar shades here and here), NARS eye primer, Dolce & Gabbana Crayon Intense liner, Cynthia Rowley liquid liner, Inglot mascara (similar here)

Lips: Revlon lipgloss
