First thing to do is hair up and out of the way and moisturize.

Right now I’m listening to the top Canada playlist on Spotify. Then gets into the eyes. I usually do eyeshadow first because I’m a big fan of the angled tape trick to let the eyeshadow look sharp. I do this by de-sticking the tape a bit then aligning it from my outer eye to the outer point of my eyebrow. Today I used the Sonia Kashuk pallet I got from Target awhile ago. Used the top left to blend and bottom left as a lid cover.

Then I used a lighter coverage Oil-Free Acne Correct & Cover Grapefruit Tinted Moisturizer blended with a beauty blender, then for under eyes my older Clinique translucent powder, and my stay matte powder for the rest of my face. I used my Mac bronzer (which I just did a review on in my previous post) and my L’Oreal Voluminous original mascara. To finish off, for the lips, Revlon colour burst matte balm in nude.

The finished look – very subtle and more natural. I don’t wear much makeup often but when I do this is my preference ! Takes me about 20/30 minutes. If you need a quick out the door look, I have a post that is ready in under 5 minutes.
