A Simple Makeup Look...

I know a few people that would be delighted to see this post, but I won't mention names. The truth of the matter is this : I don't wear makeup everyday, and it's not everyday I apply makeup I do a full face routine. Most times I don't have all the time in the world, but I still want to apply some makeup in the shortest time possible.

I decided to create this look for 3 main reasons:

1. To show you how you can look with a simple look done in a short time

2. For people who don't like colors, but still want a makeup look

3. You can use very affordable products to still achieve a good result.

Products Used:


  • house of tara brow pencil- dark brown
  • la girl pro concealer- cool tan
  • la girl pro eyeshadow primer- white
  • miss ross 88 color eyeshadow palette- nude 
  • wet n wild vanity palette- matte brow
  • mary kay gel eyeline- jet black
  • jordana retraceable pencil- black
  • bee lashes- #415

  • no 7 beautifully matte makeup base
  • black opal total coverage concealing foundation- truly topaz
  • maybelline clear smooth powder- toffee
  • sleek contour kit- medium
  • sleek blush by 3 flame

  • zaron lip pencil- mahogany
  • kiko smart lipstick- #901
  • black opal lip gloss- clear 

Easy Steps to Achieve this Look:
  • I started by priming my face, then filled in my brows and cleaned my brow bone with concealer.
  • Next,  I primed my eyelid, applied the nude eye shadow on my lid in a patting motion, used a matte brow eye shadow to contour my crease. 
  • I lined my top lash line with gel liner and my water line with pencil, then I applied my lashes.
  • Then I applied my concealing foundation all over my face, the set my entire face with powder. 
  • I applied my contour in the hollows of my cheeks, and blush on the high points of my cheek.
  • Finally, I lined my lips with a pencil, applied lipstick in the center of the lips and a little gloss to finish off the look.
I completed this look in exactly mins, and trust me that is  fassssssssssssst! You don't even want to know how long it takes me to do my full face routine * rolling my eyes*. 

Anyways, there you have it... A simple everyday look, done in mins with affordable products. Please ignore the hair, I wasn't ready to take down the braids. I hope someone finds this post useful.

Have a nice day pretties...
