Face of the Day

I tried out two makeup looks the past two days from some videos I have recently seen. The first look I did was an easy, natural makeup look. I saw this look on YouTube on michellephan's page. To watch the tutorial, click here.

I used a small amount of concealer and powder foundation, a little bit of blush, primer and my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk on my eyes and cupid's bow. I filled in my eyebrows and used some mascara. And I finished off with my E.O.S. Lip Balm [I have all 3!]

The look was so easy, quick, and made me feel confident. The minimal makeup look is great to throw on quickly for school or work, without looking tired!

I wore this look out on a date with my boyfriend to Applebee's! It was fun to have a fresh natural face :]

The next look I tried out was a color pop look by juicystar07. It was a neutral eyeshadow on top, with a pop of color for eyeliner on the bottom! Check out the video here.

To copy her look, I used my Stila Road to Radiance Eye Palette and used the color City Chick on my lid. For the bottom pop of color, I used TheAllNaturalFace eyeshadow in Mermaid's Choice.

This look was really fun! But I did have problems with some sweating off the teal color due to the fact I live in ridiculously humid Texas! So I might wait until it cools off a bit until I wear this look again [or where I'm not walking around outside as much as I did!]

Hope you enjoy the looks! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. You should look into Urban Decay's All Nighter Long Setting Spray!

    It's a bit expensive, but Sephora sells a travel size for $9 if you want to sample it. It's pretty humid in upstate NY and my makeup looks/feels awesome after a few hours in the humidity.

  2. Hey Jeannie! Is that similar to MAC Fix+? Cause I use that to set my face but my eyeliner can still run [goopy eye booger style]
    But if I ever see a travel size I'll try grabbing it! Thanks for the tip!

  3. I've never tried MAC Fix+ so I can't compare. My eyeliner is not goopy eye booger at the end of a hot day, if that helps :D
