Peace Be Upon You
It’s been an incredibly long time since I shared a new FOTD and that’s purely because I genuinely stick to the same things and not a lot changes haha.
I’ve always been intrigued by heavy makeup and blended eyeshadows, but I know this is a look that isn’t for me. I feel like it’s overdone and ageing.
If you don’t know who @Namvo is, get to know! She’s the ultimate queen of perfecting that orgasmic skin glow! Now as much as I love a good dewy dumpling look as seen here in this [p o s t], I also love a good dewy skin and natural, wearable glow.
I like to keep things simple with my makeup and hopefully this is what shines through in my recent looks!
It all starts off with PREPPING the skin first.
TONER || The Ordinary – Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution
FACIAL OIL || Elemis – Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules
MOISTURISER || Origins – Ginzing Ultra-Hydrating Energy-Boosting Cream
Then we move onto the makeup…
FOUNDATION || Georgio Armani – Luminous Silk Foundation – 6.25
PRIMER || Charlotte Tilbury – Wonderglow
CONCEALER || Nars – Creamy Radiant Concealer – Ginger
EYEBROWS || Anastasia Beverly Hills – Dipbrow Pomade – Medium Brown
CONTOUR || Nars – Tahiti Bronzer – Laguna
BLUSHER || Illamasqua – Powder Blush – Ambition
MASCARA || Lancome – Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara – Black
LIP LINER || Nars – Velvet Lip Liner – Patong Beach
LIPSTICK || Ciate x Oliva Palermo – Satin Kiss Lipstick – Praline
FINISHING SPRAY || Pearlessence – Hydrating Face Mist – Coconut Rose
You’ll see I’ve not listed a lot products and there’s no sign of a highlighter or finishing/baking powder – that is intentional. I’m trying to minimise the glitter bakey-cakey look and keep things simple and quick, at the end of the day this is an every day look. Occasionally, I’ll wear eyeliner only if I have the time to do so. Otherwise this is it, this is me.
The picture below is in sunset lighting after I’ve finished a 9-hour shift at work, thought I’d show how the make up looks and be real about it. As you can see the under eye has started to crease in a fair amount and oxidise ever so lightly, in my opinion, I just think a lot of the darkness and greys comes out. Also, I’ve only had to touch up lips throughout the day. I’ve not re-sprayed my face so the foundation and primer have been amazing in retaining that hydrated dewy glow.
Overall, I’m pleased with my everyday makeup look, it’s a quick, realistic and youthful – just how I like it! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful. I enjoying talking about makeup and I’m currently working my way through my own stash before purchasing and reviewing more 🙂
Until my next post xoxo
