Wear-to-work/ Everyday look
Hello you beautiful makeup enthusiasts,
As I promised, I am back with a tutorial on wear-to-work/ everyday makeup look. It is a very subtle yet chic look which can be worn to work. So what is different about this tutorial? Well, I understand that not everyone wants to buy expensive products especially the ones who are still learning so in this tutorial I have tried to use all inexpensive products. This is a tutorial requested by a dear friend Sowmyatta Bhardwaj who herself is an amazing blogger. Do check out her blog: sowmyatta.blogspot.com.
Alright, so let’s get started.
I started by moisturizing my face with Olay active hydrating beauty fluid, followed by M.A.C prep+prime skin base. Let the skin absorb the product for 3 minutes.
Then I applied Revlon colorstay liquid foundation for combination/oily skin in shade ‘Rich Tan’ with MUFE duo fibre brush 55N in small circular motion to give an air-brush finish.
Then instead of a concealer I used Revlon colorstay foundation in shade ‘True Beige’ under the eyes and spread it with a fluffy brush and blend it with small duo fibre brush.
Next, I applied Revlon Photoready powder in shade Light/Medium over the areas where I applied ‘True Beige’ foundation. This will a matte finish to all the foundation that you have used till now.
Note: I am not posting pictures of the foundation application because I intend to do a tutorial on my foundation routine.
Now to do the eyes, start with applying Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion in shade ‘Eden’.
For eyeshadow, I used BH Cosmetics 88 neutral eyeshadow palette. The drawback of this palette is that it doesn’t have names for its eyeshadows. So, I will number the shade and put a picture to show what shade I have used. You could use the same palette or a similar kind of eyeshadow for this look.
First, I applied the above shade no.1 (sort of milky white) on to the lid area with M.A.C 239 eye shader brush.
Then, I applied shade no.2 (slight orangish-brown color) on to the crease using Kirkland Borghese angled eye contour brush. Then using a clean M.A.C 217 blending brush I merged both the shades so that there are no harsh lines visible.
Then, I applied shade no. 3 (bronzish color) on the outer corner of the eyes using a M.A.C 219 pencil brush. Then, using a clean M.A.C 224 tapered blending brush I blend all the shades together.
Next, I used shade no.4 as a highlighter on the brow bone using M.A.C 224 tapered blending brush.
Next, I applied a thin line of Revlon colorstay eyeliner in black halfway over the upper lash line and halfway on the lower water line.
Next, I finished off the eyes by applying Revlon CustomEyes mascara in shade blackened brown on setting Length+Definition.
Next, I contoured my face by applying M.A.C Bronzing powder in shade ‘Matte Bronze’ using Kirkland Borghese angled blush brush. I applied it on the hollows of the cheek, under the jaw line and sides of the forehead. This gives an instant slimmer look to the face 😉
Then I used M.A.C blush in shade ‘Coppertone’ by dusting it on to the apples of cheek using a Kirkland Borghese blush brush.
Next, I used Maybelline Forever lipstick in shade ‘Sand’ on the lips.
Last but not the least, I dusted Make up Forever HD setting powder to set the makeup using a M.A.C Kabuki brush.
So, here is the entire look….
