Lately, I have been sporting the foundation + lips look. The above photo was taken a few days ago, but I’ve been doing a lot of the same: foundation, light blush, lipstick, and gloss. This particular combination was YSL’s Fetish Pink Rouge Volupte Lipstick ($34.00) topped with MAC Crystal Rose Lipglass (LE). I’m hoping I get less lazy and actually DO makeup tomorrow 😉

*Edited to Add* Normally, I’d definitely pop some mascara on, but every day I start my look off going, “I’ll just go to school/grocery shopping/laze about, and then do full makeup.” See, if I put mascara on right away, then I end up trying to just refresh it in a full look, because taking it off ends up removing some of my foundation and yeah… LOL.

See a close-up of the lips…

    Normally, I love all your looks. However, i do think that this color makes your teeth appear yellow =( Just some advice!

  2. danielle

    you look like you have bed head, like you just woke up. =) love the lips though. =)

    Haha I’ve been lazier than you. I haven’t worn any make-up ever since I arrived in the UK. Oh btw, Happy Birthday! 😀

  4. I like it! =] I did a natural look yesterday. 2 coats of mascara and a bit of Flusterose lipglass, as natural as I can get! =P x

  5. i love this natural look with the nice plump lips. it looks good on you =)i’ve been a bit lazy lately to do my makeup too. school just started and so forth. so i’ve been sporting some face coverage along with a little bit of mascara. cant wait to see your update on daily do’s!

    I like this look too. It’s soft, young and fresh.

    Your eyes look so naked without mascara compaired to you other looks. I would use mascara instead of blush and it is a lovely casual “out of bed” look.

  8. Kat

    i agree, i would love to see this look with some mascara/curled lashes to just make you look a bit more awake, but i do love the whole idea of the look

  9. I think you look super fresh ! I wish I could pull off that lip color

  10. grace

    oh my gosh you look like maria ozawa! (it’s a compliment, really, i think she’s gorgeous.)

  11. How weird! I’ve haven’t been doing anything on my eyes lately either.. well except curl them. When I have exactly 5 minutes to get ready – eyeshadow just takes too long! haha

    Christine, do you prefer to use foundation just on it’s own or top it with powder?
    i’ve never been too serious about foundation because of the climate of where i live in… but winter’s coming and i’ve been considering whether i should get into foundation more or not. and also, i guess this is a personal preference thing, but do you use concealer over or under your foundation?

    Me likey the lips :)

  14. Pia

    if I could have that flawless look today, I’d die happy. Love the look, Christine!

  15. Millie

    This is how I do the simple look too! :) Am too lazy to do my eyes on days I don’t work. But a little blush, lipstick/gloss surely makes me feel pretty.

    I just have to say, I just finished reading the latest issue of Nylon, which was “the It Girl issue,” and you look like you stepped off one of the pages! I really like the contrast of the bright lips against naked eyes. Feel free to take as many “lazy” days as you want, you look gorgeous!

  17. Claire

    I think a more natural lip would better compliment a natural face. That pink is too much. A tinted balm would look better.

  18. Heather

    I have never noticed before, but your eyes are such a gorgeous color!!

  19. Laura

    Wow.. you are such a natural beauty… all of your looks are amazing… I like this very much!

  20. sandy

    Christine, you look just as good without mascara, I’m usually too lazy to swipe on coats of mascara anyway, because I have to remove and I’m in a rush, so some of my lashes fell off during “make-off”.

    just some opinion, though, I really think this kind of pale pink washes you out, making you appear more sleepy. other than that, WOW

  21. Kella

    Those cool pinks don’t work on your skin tone.. it makes your teeth look yellow and your skin look green! HOWEVER, you look just as good without your usual makeup :)

    • I’m sorry you feel that way! I don’t feel like it does either :( I even went back and looked at the picture. If anything, it might be the flash/bathroom lighting.

  22. Maddie

    I definitely love the look of foundation+lipstick. I modeled in a fashion even last month and the look for me was pink lips, foundation, and a little bit of mascara. It was hit!!

  23. Maddie

    Also, you look gorgeous in these pics!

  24. Sash

    Though a very simple look, you look so radiat and beautiful!

  25. hey so were you wearing foundation here at all? if so which one? i have the exact color tone as you, but do have a few pimples here and there along with uneven skin tone because of my dark circles, i apply photoready foundation and it doesn’t match my skin tone, makes my face look to cakey and light, along with studiotech .. help ?
