Being unemployed and not having my usual going-out-every-weekend-with-Tori-and-looking-hot routine, I've really had no purpose of doing my makeup. But when I have applied makeup, I've gone for a less full-face kind of look. I've been wearing minimal foundation, no contour, and rarely eyeliner. I know, riveting stuff. But I've felt pretty doing the whole less-is-more thing. So today, I'm showing you a sample of that, using some olive and champagne shades.
Let's dive in!
To prep my look, I sprayed some Mario Badescu rose facial mist on my face. I've been turning into Jenna Marbles (I miss my queen) and obsessing over rose water spray because it feels so hydrating and refreshing. After it settled a bit, I gently applied my e.l.f. daily hydration moisturizer, as a makeup primer. If you're going out in this look, consider wearing an SPF primer or BB cream. But hi, I stayed indoors. It's important to remember to take care of your skin, folks.
Next, I used my L.A. Girl Brow Kit to fill in my brows. Any simple brow kit from CVS will do. I always try to make the most of what products I have, and so far, this brow kit hasn't let me down. Sometimes I even go over my brow hairs with the Glossier Boy Brow wand (although I'm low on product) to really make them stand out. I then applied a light layer Loreal Infallible Pro-Glow dewy foundation. Nothing too wild.
One of the main products I've been using this season is the Glossier Haloscope face highlighter in Quartz. It feels super smooth and hydrating while giving a natural dewy, fresh look.
Next, I used an olive shade from the Morphe 35M palette and messily applied it to my crease and along my lower lashline. I didn't worry about neatness since we're only building from here.
After that, I added a "magnetic rose" shade from the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy palette to my lids. I'm in love with this bright, champagne shade.
Following this, I began adding a darker olive shade from that same Morphe 35M palette. With the darker shade, I added depth in the outer corner of my lid and crease. I just kept building that on there until I felt I had a flattering contrast of olive colors with that champagne shade.
Once I felt like I was at a good place with the shadows, I added some white eyeliner to my waterline to make my actual eyes seem brighter.
To finish up the look, I applied mascara and some Loreal Paris lipstick in 117 Permanent Blush. I also used some NYX setting spray to hold it all together.
And for a closer look...
I honestly loved how this look turned out, and it made me feel really pretty, actually. It's simple but it makes my features pop!
