We all have a particular look we prefer going for every morning before we go off to work or school. It normally depends on how much time we have available for it that determines the extent of the look. I wake up quite early to workout and then have breakfast and put on my face for the day! lol
My everyday makeup routine isn’t that complex. I add things like bronzer and highlight into the mix normally but if I’m rushed I will just put on bronzer. I like to look put together as I usually meet a lot of people through my work (I work at an employment agency :)). I will switch up eyeshadow colours but will keep it fairly neutral.
For the video tutorial, I used my Dior Rosy Tan 5 colour palette which is perfect for a light pink smokey eye. I drew out a cat eye with my Marcelle felt tip liquid eyeliner pen and added Marcelle’s Xtension Plus Mascara (LOVE it!! Review coming up ;)) I smudged the lower lashline, in the outer third, with Annabelle’s SmudgePaint in Muddy for a soft smokey look. No lashes were added to my everyday look but sometimes I will add a couple individual lashes to the outer corners, if time permits, for extra lift and oomph to the eyes!
I love my bronzer and always wear it to work, so I added my Smashbox Contour Palette’s bronzer to the cheeks, temples, forehead, down the nose and a bit on the chin. NARS’ Copacabana Multiple was added to the tops of the cheekbones for some highlighting. I finished off the cheeks with a dusting of Marcelle’s Multi-Colour Pink Fusion blush.
I prefer a nice neutral lip at work so I normally grab either a nude or a pink lipstick and for this look I went with a pretty pink. I started by lining my lips with MUFE’s Aqua lip liner in 1C to make sure the colour stayed on my lips for most of the day. Then I added Lancome’s Color Design lipstick in Love it! to pretty up the lips and topped it off with Victoria’s Secret’s Innocent lip gloss.
And there you have it! It takes me no more than 20 mins or so to get this look together in the morning. If I’m not in a lipstick mood, I will put on one of my Revlon Lip Butters instead for a bit of colour.
