Natural Makeup for daytime FOTD

Hi everyone!

Here’s a quick and easy natural makeup look I tried today which would look great with any casual outfit for a spring day look.

They key to this look is to keep it minimal and fresh. Use a light/medium coverage foundation over well moisturized face with light brown/taupe eyeshadow , pink/peach blush and sheer glossy pink lipstick.

This is the final look:

FOTD using MAC Jigs and Jive Pigment

Hi everyone!

Here is a simple look I pulled together using ‘Smokey Thrillseekers’ Pigment set from  MAC Tartan Tale Collection. The pigment set contains 5 pigments :

1. Naked (warm peach beige with gold sheen. Works great as a highlighter )

2. Jigs and Jive (softened tan brown with champagne sheen)

3. Blue Brown pigment ( Red brown base with reflective teal shimmer .  My look using this pigment HERE)

4. Reflects Blackened Red (darkened red-burgundy base with flecks of burgundy glitter and sheen.)

5. Dark soul ( charcoal gray with silver glitter)

The look I have done here is using Naked and Jigs and Jive.

Jigs and Jive doesn’t show up as tan brownish on my eye lids since I have pigmented lids. I just gives a nice champagne shimmery effect as you can see.

Products used for shimmery sky blue eye makeup
  • First, I applied and  smudged the grey pencil on the lids to give a base to the shimmery sky blue eyeshadow. Without a base it appears very light, almost silvery blue.
  • Next, I applied the shimmery blue shadow to the entire lid up to the crease after which I applied the dark blue eye shadow on the outer corner.
  • After applying the dark blue on the outer corner, I applied dark brown on the crease and blended it well with the blue shades.
  • Next, I applied the highlight shade on the browbone and blended it with the crease color.
  • To give a more open look to the eyes, I applied some of the shimmery blue shade in the inner corners of the eyes.
  • Next, I applied lots of kajal and smudged it on the lower lash line using a moist brush loaded with the dark blue eyeshadow.
  • Lastly, I applied winged black eye liner and finished the look with a coat of mascara.
