Fresh Makeup Look for College/Work


Hey everyone!

Hope you are having a good weekend! Today is Day 13 of the September Daily Look Challenge and today was the first day I didn’t feel like doing makeup in this challenge. But I went ahead anyway and did a soft fresh look that would be great for work or college. I’d asked everyone for ideas for this challenge and many of you requested looks for college/work. Hope you like this one!

I only used concealer for this look but you can also use a BB or CC cream to get some light coverage. I prefer using a concealer to target pigmented areas (under eyes, around the nose, mouth and jawline) and setting it with powder for a clean, low maintenance look. For the cheeks and lips, I chose a fresh peachy pink shade that would brighten up the face and give a natural, youthful glow.

And for the eyes, I defined them well with eye pencils with a little pop of turquoise on the waterline to add a fun element to the look. Finished the look by curling the lashes and applying mascara. I did not fuss around with eye shadow and other products – just kept the look simple and easy!

1. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer : Honey (Buy online at Amazon)

2. MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder (I couldn’t locate my other powders. You can use Rimmel Stay Matte Powder or Maybelline Dream Matte Compact Powder)

3. Maybelline Colossal Kajal : Black and Turquoise

4. Revlon Matte Blush : Pink Souffle

5. Maybelline The Falsies Mascara (Buy online at Amazon)

    Sry but ur hairs r looking bit frizzy here.. Try the last month envy box Kama hair oil sample.. U ll love it …

    • September 13, 2014 / 10:32 pm

      I have quite frizzy hair. I tried the Kama Ayurveda sample, makes the hair soft but doesn't solve the frizz issue!

        well do you really liked the Kama Ayurveda Bringadi intensive hair treatment oil??? i hv also got the standard size bottle.. even after skipping Organic Harvest cleansing milk nw i hv switched to Kama Ayurveda Mridul soap free cleanser,, after trying the sample i hv bought the bigger packaging..

        • September 14, 2014 / 1:24 pm

          Hi Joo, the oil hasn't done anything special to my hair. Makes them a bit softer than regular simple coconut oil but nothing spectacular. I am now using an oil by Iraya. Lets see how that fares. I haven't yet tried the Mridul cleanser sample from My Envy Box, will give it a try today.

    My glasses are turquoise in color so I won't wear the turqouise kohl. They would clash with each other. Also, I like to wear matte lip colors for everyday makeup.
    But you look great here! You look like Lucy Hale. Hehe. 😀

  20. September 15, 2014 / 11:45 am

    i am seriously thinking to buy this concealer now but would that hide dark acne spots???

  21. September 15, 2014 / 8:23 pm

    AW!! you look like a kid here. Loved the look.

  22. September 15, 2014 / 9:56 pm

    hi ankita I have a query , u said for this look u use d concler on jawline, area around mouth and around the nose , my question here is that , dream touch lumi conclere har subtle highlighting effect , doesn’t it look tacky to use it on the area mention above ? as it my highlight those area too …

    • September 15, 2014 / 10:09 pm

      Hi Priya, the highlighting effect is very subtle and it just brightens up the face, don't see any large shimmer or anything.

      • September 17, 2014 / 12:28 am

        ok ankita tnk you ,, m going to buy this conceler 🙂
