The Everyday (Always Looks Decent) Face

I am truly one of those girls who loves to change her makeup day to day. I thrive on different eyeshadow effects, what blush goes with what look, to have winged liner or no winged liner – you get the drift. Occasionally though I just want to slap some face paint on my mug and know it is gonna look ‘ok’, so here’s my go to ‘know it will turn out ok’ everyday face.

To start I’ve been priming with Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, then buffing in Mac Face & Body Foundation in N2 with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. Under the eyes as usual it is Mac Prolongwear Concealer in NW20 and then everything is set with powder and my Real Techniques MultiTask Brush (today I used the new Nars Soft Velvety Loose Powder)
I opted to contour a bit today with the Mac Sculpting Powder in Sculpt, and then brighten things up with theBalm Instain Blush in Toile, both of which I used the Tarte Blush Brush.

Moving on to eyes, I used my Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #13 on the lids and then buffed Mac Sable Eyeshadow through the crease with a Mac 217 Brush. A couple of swipes of Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper created some winged eyeliner, then L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara in Waterproof went on the upper lashes, and Mac Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara on the bottom lashes.
Brows finished it all off with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown to fill in, and Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep to set it all in place.

Finally a swipe of Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in #06 brought the whole rosey nude look together.

What is your current routine for days when you don’t feel like experimenting? Would you guys like to see posts like this in the future?
