My Go-To Natural Makeup Look

I love makeup just like most girls do, I even have a large collection of makeup products. I just love waking up in the morning do my morning skin care routine followed by applying my makeup for the day. It's so much fun to do and it really relaxes me. Don't get me wrong though I love to not wearing makeup a lot more, at least the bare minimum. If I have somewhere important to go then, of course, I'll go all in with a full face of makeup. Most of the time I like to keep it extremely quick, easy and natural. There are a few steps that I take to accomplish it and here is exactly how I achieve my natural go-to makeup look.
When I am applying my makeup I always begin with my eyebrows, they also take me the longest to do. I switch off between a pencil and pomade so it really just depends on my mood that day. My go-to is usually a pomade since they really ensure your brows to last all day. I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade and I have been using this product for years. Next, with some concealer or even foundation, I clean up my brows and fix any mistakes I may have made. The final step for my brows is setting them with some brow gel. I love using tinted brow gel because it helps make them look more fuller and thicker which I need all the help I can get in that department. At the moment I am all out of tinted gel so I have been using my ABH clear gel. What tinted brow gel would you recommend that the brand is cruelty-free?

The next step for me is eyes and I start with curling my eyelashes followed by applying mascara to my eyelashes. I'm not picky when it comes to mascaras and usually just use any one that I have laying around. This Tarte lights, camera, Lashes has been a favorite for a couple years now. I have very little and short lashes and it's very rare that a mascara will make them look long. I like this mascara because it does a decent job making my lashes look thicker than they are. I also add mascara to my bottom lashes but I usually save this step for last. I apply the mascara to my bottom lashes as soon as the setting spray dries on my face, just to prevent it from smearing.

Now time for the face. I find it necessary to use a pore filling primer, specifically on my nose and cheeks since that is where I have large pores. I've been using the Urban Decay pore perfecting primer potion for a couple of years now. (Don't make fun of the broken cap haha) I really like how this primer fills my pores without drying my skin and it really holds the makeup in place.

If I didn't have to wear foundation I would totally skip this step, but I can't due to some random blemishes and natural redness I get on my cheeks. I enjoy full coverage foundations but I absolutely love a light-weight foundation even more. My go-to lately has been the Wet N Wild photo focus foundation. This foundation has a light to buildable coverage, feels very lightweight on the skin, and looks so natural on the skin. My kind of foundation! I like to apply just enough to even out my skin and it looks like I'm not even wearing any foundation.

After my foundation is applied I go in with concealer under my eyes to highlight and anywhere I may have a blemish. Once again I have been using and still loving the Wet N Wild photo focus concealer. It has the perfect amount of coverage for concealing breakouts with a natural finish.

Once I'm done with foundation and concealer I set my face. Since I have oily skin I find that setting my face is a step I cannot skip. Under my eyes, I like to use a loose translucent powder. I really like the It Cosmetics bye bye pores powder. This powder hides all my pores and makes my skin look perfectly smooth. For my face I'm using the Wet N Wild photo focus powder, (they are not sponsoring me in any way haha I just love this line).

When my base is all done I go in with some bronzer to warm up my skin. I love how the Physicians Formula butter bronzer applies to my skin. It feels so be finely milled I think that is why it looks so naturally radiant. This is also when I like to apply highlighter first followed by blush. I like a glow from within and this Josie Maran does exactly that. When it comes to blush I usually always gravitate towards a peachy shade and the Too Faced sweethearts blush in peach beach is favorite of mine. It has shimmer but nothing chunky so once applied and blended onto the skin it gives the prettiest radiance with a peachy tone.

The final step is to set my makeup in place using long lasting setting spray. This Milani spray works so well in holding my makeup in place and it smells great, win-win!

Before I forget, for lips I usually go for a "my lip color but better" lipstick shade, so basically any nude lipstick.
See I told you this look is super quick and easy. What is your go-to makeup look and products?

  1. I've been looking to try out Wet N Wild and you've totally encouraged me. Thank you!

    I also have short lashes. I've seen that by keeping them curled they look longer. For that, I use waterproof mascara. It can even be just one coat, then rest regular mascara. I read this tip in a magazine a while back lol.

    1. The UD primer has been a favorite of mine for years and it never lets me down. I haven't been using the Wet N Wild concealer too much lately because I got a new concealer I've been trying out. You need the powder!
