My Everyday Makeup Look
A few months ago my go-to makeup look was always eyeliner, mascara and a nude lipgloss but lately, I've really been loving using eyeshadow INSTEAD of eyeliner. So for the first time ever in my blogging life, here's a a peep at my everyday look:
Before I start I always put lip balm on, to give my lips a chance to soften up. Although I really should start using my lip exfoliator as well, my lips are never quote soft enough when I put my lipstick on and I end up with lumpy lips. My choice of lip balm depends on which one I can find first, so either my Nivea soft rose balm, or Dr PawPaw. Guess which one it was today?!
Next is my eyeshadow. I have three paletttes (all Younique) but this is the only one I really use these days, I find that the shade Tender and Secretive go best with every outfit, suit my skin best and Secretive just gives it that little bit of something special.
Then, I curl my eyelashes (something I've only recently started doing) and use my brown mascara. I should probably get rid of it though, I'm pretty sure ASDA doesn't even sell this mascara any more, and it smells like paint. It is a pretty decent mascara though!
After wiping away any excess shadow and mascara I use my skin perfecting concealer in shade Scarlet (the palest for us goth-skinned girls) under my eyes. I'm so tired these days that I can't help but notice that my under-eyes need a little brightening up and this does the trick. I apply it with a brush and then use my beauty blender to finish it off.
|I literally only use the tiniest dot and even then it's sometimes too much! This tiny tube goes a long way.|
I have no idea how to contour. I've tried it a million times and watched a million youtube videos but I just cannot master it. So I just use the 3D Creme (highlighter) to make it look like I've tried.
I actually love the creme, as you can probably tell by how well used it is!
Last but not least, my lipstick. Generally I only wear nude or red, as I feel they go best with my hair, but I rediscovered this pinky beauty, that actually compliments my red hair surprisingly well!
So there we have it, my everyday go-to look. I know I'm not the best at applying makeup, which is why I keep it so simple but I love it - and it's a lot less hassle now I've switched my eyeliner for eyeshadow!
