I have a new make-up routine that I'm really excited to share with you guys. Most of you know, I'm not super into beauty products, I throw some coconut oil and mascara on my face and head to yoga. Therefore, I'm always looking for the easiest and quickest way to achieve a day look.
I ordered a few products from Model Launcher and came up with a little routine of my own.
First, let's start with the eyes. I'm using the smoke + mirrors eyeshadow quad for the shadow on my eyelid. I'm really into the color on the top left of the quad, it's got this cool grey shimmer to it (with some brown undertones.) I found it to be a nice color to use all over my eyelid and even below my brow bone. The second part of my eye look, which might be the product I am most obsessed with, is the gel liner. I have it in both brown and lavender (the brown is pictured above.) I really like to get it first in my water line, then a little below in my lash line. It's really smooth to put on, so it's easy to get in the water and lash line without irritation. I love how much this one simple product can do for you overall eye look. I even wear the lavender liner under my eyes with just mascara for a little pop of color. I find it really brings out the blue in my eyes.
Next, let's move on to cheeks. Where I've used this awesome contour powder duo. The combined colors are perfect for gentle conturing. I use one brush and put a little of both colors on it to gently press into my cheek bone. I like how light and fresh the combination of the two colors create. I also really like this leopard print safari bronzer. It's a little more intense than the powder duo, so use it to really add some warmth to your nose, cheeks and forehead.
Lastly, I sort of fell in love with this lipstick color, evolve. It's like the perfect pink, but not too pink. I have a really hard time finding lipsticks I like. I always seem to hate having color on my lips if it isn't the perfect shade. Admittedly, I've been wearing this one daily (even to my yoga class!) Not really sure what makes the pigment so fitting for my skin-tone, but I'm so happy I came across it.
I found that these products really work well together to create a simple day look for me, that isn't time-consuming. I even bring the gel liner, bronzer, and lipstick in my bag for touch-ups if I've got a long day ahead.
I hope this helps some of you, let me know if you have any questions!
