Midday Makeup

I’m not a big fan of makeup during the day, especially in the sunlight where every little detail is exaggerated. Eyeliner smudges, contouring is too defined and foundation is thick and heavy. However, I had a lunch at the country club’s outdoor terrace yesterday, and wanting to bring my best face forward, I opted for fresh, light makeup, neither over doing it nor going au naturel.

To achieve this look I used the following:

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector – Light for my skin tone, also available in dark.

Maybelline concealer – 02 Natural also available in light.

Maybelline Mineral Power blush – True Peach for the apples of my cheeks.

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Wet/Dry shadow – Gold Rush for underneath my brow.

Lancome eyeshadow – Color Design (pink shadow) for my lids.

Yves Saint Laurent mascara – Shocking

L’Oreal Brow Stylist – Darker Medium Brown to define my eyebrows.

Maybelline eye shadow – 24 Enchanted Forest (brown shadow) to fill in brow pencil gaps.

Estee Lauder High Gloss – 07 Pearl

This is the result, an almost no makeup look that is appropriate for the occasion.
