I am 100% here for looks that allow me to get ready in a very limited amount of time because I am constantly waiting until the last minute to get to my makeup. This week I came across an article on Into The Gloss about different ways to experiment with blush and I was totally inspired to try a fresh-faced, flushed look for MOTD today. My look won’t be a literal interpretation of any of those looks but it was definitely inspired by them!
I wanted to keep my skin looking really fresh so I opted for a luminous foundation (Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk is my favorite). For a nice flush on the cheeks I went with a muted orange cream blush (Colour Pop Super Shock Cheek in Quarters).
For the lips I used my finger to apply a bright coral lipstick (NARS Audacious Lipstick in Grace) to my lips by tapping it on and blending for a more stained effect.
I kept the eyes simple by sweeping a pale warm gold shimmer shadow all over the lid to just above the crease.
The finishing touch was to add a bit of rose gold highlighter (MAC x Taraji P. Henson Highlight the Truth) to the tops of my cheekbones and to sweep the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders (I have the trio palette) all over my face.
I have a few different variations on fresh-faced makeup but I like that this includes a bolder lip.
Do you do “fresh-faced”? What are your favorite products to use for that?
