FOTD // Weekend No Makeup Makeup

September 13, 2013 | , , , ,
Last weekend I wanted to head out and do a few things but I didn't want to wear a full face of make up so I came up with this look. It's nothing innovative at all but I did pull out a few products I don't think I use enough, as well as some that I haven't really given a fair chance. 

It's no surprise that I primed with Benefit's POREfessionalOn my face I used the Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touché Éclat as my base, Yves Saint Laurent Touché Éclat under my eyes and the Essence Match 2 Cover Cream Concealer on blemishes. I blended them all out with the Beauty Blender. As always, I set it with my MAC Studio Fix Powder in C2. I've started applying NARS' Laguna Bronzer in the 3 - E motion over the face again and I really love the glow/shape it gives, especially for days where I don't want a full on contour. I've been loving my Illamasqua Powder Blush in SOPHIE so much that I felt like I needed to use something else. I used NARS' Orgasm Powder Blush and, nope, it's not as good!

I used the Estee Lauder Pure Color Five Color EyeShadow Palette in Desert Heat for the my eye look. For some reason it's the first time I used the palette and I absolutely love it. I can't wait to create more dramatic looks with it. I'm in love with the Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara at the moment so it was only natural that I used it.

Finally, I grabbed the first lipgloss I could find which happened to be a favourite, MAC's Lipglass in Viva Glam Nicki.

So that's my super natural make up look for the days where I want to be out the door stat. but don't want to be bare faced. What are your tips for a no makeup makeup look? I'd love to know.

Also, I want to get more into FOTD posts because sometimes I create looks I feel like I really need to share with y'all. If there's anything you'd like to see me create, please let me know!! 

Always look your best,
