My Current Everyday Makeup Routine

 

Hey everyone!

Today I’m sharing a makeup look that I’ve been wearing quite often these days. Its a fresh pink look that brightens up my face and stays up quite well in the heat. I use a brown or black eye pencil with mascara for the eyes. Curling the lashes opens up the eyes and its something I rarely skip! For the face, I use concealer under the eyes, around the mouth and nose area, in areas of blemishes and set everything with a loose powder that gives light coverage and keeps my skin clean and matte. I completely skip foundation most days I’m headed out because I like my skin to have minimal products as most bases don’t hold up very well in the heat. To finish off the look, I use a warm pink blush paired with a soft berry lipstick! All the products I use are listed further in this post.

My Current (Vacation) Makeup Routine

 

If you’ve been a long time follower of my blog, you would hardly recall any “makeup routine” posts! I only get into a routine when I’m traveling because I carry limited products. On other days when I’m home, I tend to change up my look and products often. I have to say, there is something comforting about having a makeup routine, I get ready much quicker and I don’t have to think too much about what look I’m going for.

My current makeup routine is more or less composed of the products mentioned in this post. I go for a luminous base with a hint of bronzed pink on the cheeks, brown/plum liner on the eyes (with kohl on some days) and a rose pink lip.

3 Everyday Makeup Looks : Rosy Glow, Polished Work Chic, Girl Next Door

 

Nobody has the time to spend hours poring over a laborious beauty routine when you have to rush out the door in 5 minutes. For busy girls, quick beauty looks are just what you need when you’re pressed for time. Personally, I like to keep things simple without fussing about with too many products for everyday wear. The trick is to use multi-tasking products that cut down time and effort! My mantra for a five minute beauty look is to conceal pigmentation and dullness, define the eyes and add a hint of healthy color to the cheeks and lips.

 

To help you all busy girls out there, I have a compiled a look book with 3 Quick Looks for Everyday wear.

Look #1 :  Rosy Glow –

This look adds a fresh, rosy glow to the face and is best for days when you’re feeling tired and dull. The rosy tones brighten the complexion and instantly fade away fatigue and dullness.

 

1. Start by moisturizing your entire face and then use a concealer under the eyes, around the nose and mouth and any other areas that you think need extra coverage. Blend out the formula with your fingers.

Time saving tip: When you’re pressed for time, skip foundation and just apply concealer in areas that need coverage.

2. Opt for a warm rose lipstick like the Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Soft Rose on your pout. Then use your fingers to dot some of the formula on your cheeks and blend like a cream blush.

3. Apply pressed powder all over the face to set the blush and concealer.

4. Finally, line your eyes with your favorite kohl, curl your lashes and apply a coat of your favorite mascara! Done!
