As I was getting ready the other day it occurred to me that I’ve been doing my makeup pretty much exactly the same every day for the last several weeks. I don’t know when I fell into this pattern, but I guess this look has become my new go-to. Honestly I feel like it’s a “look” born out of my general laziness and lack of prep time in the mornings before work, but it still manages to make me look and feel good so I’ll roll with it!
Lately I’ve been priming my lids with Beauty Bakerie EyesCream in Crumb Cake. It’s a pinky brown that I think works well on it’s own and as a base.
My favorite eye brush of all time is the Sigma E40 because it makes it really easy to do an eye look without using a ton of brushes. For this look I used it to add a hint of matte warm brown shadow to the outer third of my crease, and a bit of matte taupe shadow to all of my crease for some dimension.
I like fully matte looks but I just can’t resist a little shimmer or sheen on my lid! I added a neutral shimmer shadow all over the lid; the color I use varies depending on my mood, this time I used Marina from the same palette I used earlier.
Finally I finished the eyes by adding a soft metallic gold to the inner corners of my eyes and filling in my brows with Glossier Boy Brow in Brown (I think I’m going to try Black next now that my hair is back to it’s natural color).
After I applied my foundation, I added a hint of color to my cheeks with a berry cream blush (Cheerio from Colour Pop) and a vivid pop on the lips with a cherry lipstick (Wet N Wild Cherry Picking).
This is the look I’ve mostly been rocking for the last month or so, the only thing that really changes is my lip color depending on my mood!
What is your go-to when you’re in a hurry?
