Some days I’m all for spending time doing my makeup, layering shadows, contouring, blushing, highlighting…etc. Other days, I want to look natural and polished in 5 minutes or less. I’ve also been loving applying my makeup sans brushes to achieve a more natural look, and these products are perfect for doing just that.
For this particular look I wanted to create something summery and bronzy, using similar shades on the eyes, lips and cheeks. Using similar tones all over the face is a great way to create a natural yet sophisticated makeup feel.
Here’s how to achieve this super easy look:
I began by applying a light layer of Revlon Photoready BB Cream to my face, concentrating mainly on my t-zone to get rid of any redness. Next, I took my Nars Laguna Illuminator (this stuff blends into the skin like a dream), and patted it onto my cheeks and temples using my fingertips. That’s the base done!
Moving onto the eyes… I took Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Bronze and applied it to my lids and a bit on my lower lash line straight from the tube, and blended it in with fingertips. A couple coats of Maybelline’s The Rocket mascara, and that’s it for the eyes.
Lastly, I applied my new favorite nude gloss to my lips – Aerin’s Lip Gloss in Sweet Pea. This is such a great nude shade, not too light and not too dark. It also has a lovely floral scent!
And there you have it! Have you been taking the brushes out of your makeup routine lately?
