Among a few every day makeup looks, this is one of my favourite. This is a day look and I barely need 5-7 minutes to do this.
During the day I mostly avoid using liquid foundation all over the face. You may use it , if you want. I suggest that you mix your liquid foundation with a little oil free moisturiser and then use. This will not only keep your skin hydrated but would also prevent any cakiness or masked look. I like to use a medium coverage concealer that completely matches my skin tone.
I have moisturised my face and applied sunscreen. I am just dotting the concealer on the areas that need some correction such as under the eyes, around the nose, around my mouth and on blemishes here and there on my face. Blend everything with your fingers.
Now pick some compact powder on a fluffy brush and go over all the areas that you have just concealed. This is just to make your concealer last all day long and set it.
powder under your eyes
Now take a cream eyeshadow. I am using Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream. It is water proof, does not crease and lasts all day long. If you don’t have this, you may pick up Revlon cream eye shadows as well but for that that you must prep your eyes with an eyeshadow primer, apply powder and then use them.Or else they’d crease and fade away within few hours only.
Take some compact powder on afluffy brush and apply it just below your browbone area.
I like to use cream blush during the day for that dewy , natural look. You may check out ,my tutorial on How To Apply Cream Blush
Apply your favourite everyday lipstick.
For those who have oily skin may use a mattifier or primer all over the face. Also , you may apply a light wash of loose powder all over your face to finish up the look. Since I have dry skin I generally avoid the step. I always carry my compact kajal and lipstick for touch ups during the day. For girls with oily skin, oil blotting sheets work wonders.
