If you've been around my blog for a while, you know that I love love love makeup and you never ever see me without it. Smokey eyes, false lashes and pink lips have kind of become my trademark and I usually wear my makeup like that every day..
Sometimes I have to stop being stubborn and listen to others; some people including my mom and sister have said I should give a natural look a go, just to see how I like it.. I always think it won't look good on me.
Today I played around with some new makeup in more neutral colors and I actually like how it turned out. It's still a lot of products that I use, but the result is more natural. Here's a little description of how I got this look... Aaaand...: How do you like it?
This is what takes most of my time when it comes to make up: creating an even complexion. To me it is very important to cover every bit of redness or spots, even though I don't really have that. Usually I wear heavy eye makeup and that diverts attention from any redness etc if there is any. Now I'm going for natural eyes so my skin should be flawless.. We all want that don't we? I use a concealer, Gosh foundation, light under-eye powder and loose powder to get a matte effect and hide dark circles under my eyes. I replaced my bronzer with a soft pink blush.
I used a golden shimmery eyeshadow and a grey eyeshadow for a very light smoky eye. Blending is key, for a natural look you definitely don't want harsh lines. I replaced my pitch black and sharp lined eyeliner with a dark brown gel eyeliner for a much softer line. I used a little bit of brown eyeshadow on my lower lash line and added mascara. I won't ever go without false lashes anymore, because well.. I've become addicted from the very first start. I used natural lashes and added a tiny bit of mascara on top.
I went for the perfect nude lips with my favorite waterproof Gosh lipliner and lipstick in the same color 'Nougat'. That's all for the lips and this completes my natural look!
