Updated Easy Everyday ‘Natural’ Makeup Look

Hey hey you guys! Happy Friday Junior! Today I’ve got an updated everyday makeup look. I originally did one several months ago, but since then I’ve converted most of my makeup to Senegence Products. Sooo, I thought it was time to show y’all what my everyday face of the day routine looks like. πŸ™‚

I do my makeup every single day. Even if I have the once in a blue moon ‘no makeup day day’ , I will still do my brows and lashes. Cause…as you can see in that before picture – I’m seriously lacking in those two departments.

Since I do my makeup everyday and have to rangle two little children and be out the door all before 7:15 am – I tend to do the same thing most days. I like this look. It’s a noticeable enhancement of my natural features, but it’s not too much.

Alright – so first things first…and not pictured : moisturize and prime your face. I use a moisturizer that also has SPF and a pore filling primer.

Next, I slather my face in CCTM which is Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer in Light from Senegence. CCTM is life. It evens my skin tone without giving me a heavy layer of product all over my face. Also, it doesn’t transfer or come off until I remove it at the end of the night!

Then I put some color on those non existent brows. Cause: brow lives matter. I use a powder. I like a natural bushy looking brow – so that’s what I go for.

Once my brows are poppin, I use two shades from my Shadowsense collection: candlelight and moca java. Candlelight is a nude light skin tone. I use a domed fluffy brush to apply candlelight all over my lid and up to my brows. I use a smaller fluffy brush to apply moca java (a cool toned brown) all over my lid and lower lash line. Continual and repeated blending is key in this step. Make sure you buff and blend out those edges so that there are no harsh unnatural looking lines. Side note: Shadowsense is phenomenal. There is never any fall out…and it stays put alllll day.

When my shadow is blended to perfection I grab more Shadowsense in the shade Onyx to use as liner. I use a small flat brush to apply Onyx to the outer third of my upper and lower lash line. I usually smudge/smoke out the bottom lash line.

Mascara is next! Right now my current mascara obsession is the black fiber mascara from the Maybelline X Gigi Hadid collab. It really gives my wispy little lashes some volume. [I don’t have it on yet in the picture below.]

The next two parts are my absolute fave when doing my makeup: Cheeks and Lips. Why? Because they just really finish and pull together your whole look. I’m pretty sure I used this same blush in my last everyday makeup tutorial. I love it that much. It’s the Physician’s Formula Butter Blush in Plum Rose. For me, it is just the perfect cool toned natural flush for my face.

Lips are Senegence Lipsense … of course. πŸ˜‰ Lipsense is the only lippie that I wear now, because it is incredibly long lasting and has healed my dry chappy lips. For my everyday, I always reach for Goddess. It is a great subtle pinky shade on me.

Anddddd, that is it you guys! This whole process usually takes me about 20 minutes from start to finish in the morning. Give or take a few minutes to account for the usual kid interruptions. πŸ˜‰

Smokey/Black Out Eye Shadow Tutorial

Hey there! Ashley here…and today I’ve got another easy peasy makeup tutorial for you guys. This is one of my go to looks. I love a smokey eye, but a black out smokey eye is my absolute favorite. Even though I typically use this look for the everyday, it would also make a great ‘night out’ look if you added some false lashes and smoked out the bottom lash line even more.

I hope you guys enjoy, and as always if you have any questions, please drop them in the comment section and I will respond!

Alright, so this tutorial is focusing on getting a specific eye look; therefore, I’ve already done my face. In reality, if I were doing this look I’d for sure do my eyes first since there tends to be a lot of mess/fall out with the black shadow.

First things first…the products and tools :

Step One: Prime/Set your lids

I used the Mac Paint Pot in Painterly. I apply that with my fingertips all over the lid bringing it up to my eyebrow. Then I used the free spirit shade from my Tartlette palette to set the primer.

Step Two: Blow Out your Crease

To me, what really gives this look some dimension and complexity is that you want to start with a blown out brown crease. First I applied Wanderer from the Tartlette Palette with a compact crease brush and blended that all up in my crease bringing it to my brown bone. Next, I grabbed a bigger crease brush and picked up Crisp from my Tartiest Pro To Go Pallette. I put crisp right on top of where I put the first crease color. I proceeded to blend blend blend blend until my crease was smooth and blown out.

Step Three: Apply Black shadow all over the Lid

Noooow, we get to the black. Are you making heart eyes over there yet? πŸ˜‰ But yes. This next step is pretty straightforward. You grab a shader brush and pack on that black shadow all over the lid. Then you grab your fluffy crease brush from step two and blend out the edges of where the black shadow meets your crease. This step involves a TON of crease blending. And then. When you crease looks great – go back and add more black to the lid because you probably brushed some of the pigment away during blending. THEN blend out the crease a little more. The black I used is called Fashionista and is from the same Tartlette Pallette.

Step Four: Smudged Liner and Mascara

Now that your eye is blended to perfection, you just need to add liner and mascara. Apply black eyeliner to the outer 2/3 of your waterline and then use a flat dense brush to smudge the liner. I also grabbed some of Crisp shade from my Tarteist Pro Pallete to buff out the bottom edge of my smudged black liner. Last, apply your mascara. I layered two type of mascara for extra volume and drama, but you don’t have to do that.

And that is it! Wanna see a before and after? Of course you do. Who doesn’t love a good side by side before and after???
