Easy Everyday “Natural” Makeup Look

Heeeeey you guys! So great to see you around here. 🙂 Today I wanted to share with you my go-to makeup look for the everyday. It’s my version of a “natural” look that is quick and easy. And just to preface this with a disclaimer…I said quick and easy – NOT minimal product or tools involved. That’s a challenge for another day. 😉 Ok! To the makeup look…

For my shadow I just used the two bronzer shades from this Physcian’s Formula Palette. I put the redish/orange one in my crease and the cool brown all over my lid. Easy Peasy peeps:

Alright, so next – when I am doing minimal makeup color correcting out all that redness on my skin is super important:

Now that I cancelled out all the redness on my face, I need to color correct those under eyes. I wipe off the fall out from my shadow application and apply my Pixie Pink CC:

All the color correcting is finished – now it’s time to put on some Tarte Shape Tape. I also added a little bit of the NYX Lavender HD Studio Concealer to further brighten my under eye. Apply – then blend it all out with your damp beauty sponge:

Ok – on to the finishing touches. I apply brown liner to my water line and tight line along my upper lashes. I smudge that bottom liner out with a small brush. After liner, I apply mascara to my top and bottom lashes:

The cheeks! My favorite part. I went back to that same Physcician’s Formula Bronzer Pallette and applied the cool tone brown to the hallow of my cheeks. I put some Colourpop SS highlight along the top of my cheek bones. Last, I put blush on my cheeks. Blend Blend Blend people. That is the key:

And now, last but certainly not least….brows and lip:

And there you have it guys! Quick and easy …right? 😉  If you are curious about the products and/or tools I used I’m including a pictures of them here:

You can use whatever you have on hand though. The point of this was to show you that you don’t really need these specific products or tools to create this easy look. Whenever I watch a makeup tutorial I think about the things I already have and pull from different palettes to put together what I just watched…or read. 😉

If you have any questions…drop me a comment and I will get back to you!

 

 

 

 

Ulta/Colourpop Haul Review: Ashley

Hey y’all hey! Happy FRIDAY!! I hope you guys are having a fabulous day so far…and are excited for the weekend ahead. Today, I wanted to share with you my review of some products I purchased at the end of last month. I did an unboxing and first impressions of these products on our snapchat (RAtheMOMachine) when I first received them. Now that I’ve had them for about a month, I feel like I can give my final thoughts on most of them. 🙂 Let’s get to it, shall we?

So apparently I bought several concealers. 🙂

NYX HD Concealer (in lavender) – I got this to use as a brightener with my darker concealers ( like the Maybeline Fit Me ), and it does a great job. I just apply it first – then put the Fit Me on top and use a damp beauty sponge to blend it all out.

Maybeline Fit Me (in fair) –  This was a repurchase for me. I absolutely love this concealer for days that I don’t want heavy coverage. It’s definitely an affordable option in comparison to high end concealers like NARS or Tarte Shape Tape. It doesn’t look cakey or creasy and blends out easily.

Maybelline Face Studio Master Concealer (in fair) – This was another repurchase for me. I use this to spot conceal when I have pimples I need to disguise…or just red bumps. It is a thick concealer, but it blends out well with a damp sponge and it has amazing coverage. Some days I just use this with some under eye concealer and skip out on foundation completely.

Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Contour Concealer (in fair) –  First, that name. Woah. This is a multi use concealer. You can use it for everything. I typically use it to conceal my under eye and brighten the center of my face. Another repurchase. It is full coverage, but you can lessen the amount you apply for a lighter coverage if you want. It lasts all day. It actually brightens my pale skin. The coverage is phenomenal. Bottom line, if you use concealer and this is not in your makeup arsenal…you are missing out my friend.

NYX Honey Dew Me Up Skin Serum and Primer –  I’ve use this once…and wasn’t blown away. I definitely need to give it some more use to really talk about my full opinion.

L.A. Girl Pro Coverage Liquid Foundation (in fair) –  Sooo I haven’t even used this. The color was all wrong when I swatched it. I just noticed they have a porcelain color option. I probably should have bought that. And I should for sure return this. lol

L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint (in blushing) –  I added this to my cart because I bought the L.A. Girl foundation and there was a buy one get one 50% off. It’s horrible. It smells like paint. The applicator is plastic. It’s insanely liquidy. It is so so so bad. But it was super cheap…soo I definitely got what I paid for. Why haven’t I returned this yet??

IT Cosmetics No Tug Water Proof Gel Liner (in brown) –  I purchased this because I’d received the black version of this liner in an Ipsy bag and I absolutely love it. I just don’t wear black liner on a regular basis. I don’t know if I agree with the waterproof claim, because my watery eye line dissolves this stuff by the middle of the day. However, I still think it’s great. I have really watery eyes. It for sure is the longest lasting liner that I’ve ever used.

Double Play – Pressed Powder Face Duo –  So I love the highlight in this palette. That shade to the left is supposedly a blush. It’s more like a bronzer for me. I mainly just the highligher..on the regular. 🙂 It’s stunning.

Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer (in bronzer) – As you can see from the dint I’ve made in the product…I love this. There are only two shades in this bronzer and “bronzer” is the darkest shade. It works really great with my skin tone for a natural bronzed look.

Tarte Double Duty Beauty Confidence Creamy Powder Foundation (in fair neutral) – The first several times I wore this, I used it as a finishing powder. It ended looking to dry on my face. Again, like my watery eye line..dry skin is my problem – not this product’s. I now use it on days that I don’t do foundation. I’ll set my undereye and lightly brush it on the rest of my face. Using it that way (which is more of what it is intended for ) I don’t experience any over dryness looks.

Blow Me Away Pressed Powder Shadow Palette –  I really love this palette. I didn’t have any shadows in those colors. The quality is top notch, of course. They blend really well. I’ve used this entire palette for one look ..but I mainly grab it and use the colors individually with other shadows I own.

MARIO BADESCU Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber, and Green Tea –  As you can see from the amount of product left in this bottle…I LOVE this spray. I use it everyday after I finish my makeup. I’ll spray a generous amount all over my face, then use the damp beauty sponge to just put it into my skin. It refreshes my skin and helps melt all my powders into it so that I achieve that dewy look I’m always searching for. 🙂

 

WHEW! We made it to the end. At least I hope you made it to the end. haha Thanks for reading today. I hope I gave you some insight to these products. Do you guys use any of these? What are YOUR thoughts on them? 🙂
