Ohh, a little overboard in this look. I’m probably heading up to my parents’ house, so I’ll end up wearing a different look there anyway! (I usually spend all day outside running around with my puppy, so minimal makeup is usually better!)

I used Lark About pigment (LE) on inner lid, Mutiny pigment (LE) on middle of lid, Bell Bottom Blue pigment (LE) on outer lid, Rite of Spring eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Juxt eyeshadow on middle of lid, Newly Minted eyeshadow on middle of lid, Freshwater eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Juxt eyeshadow above crease, Phloof! eyeshadow on brow, Mutiny pigment (LE) on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Other Worldly blush (LE) on cheeks with Dior Amber Diamond Skin Shimmer on cheeks. I wore Fun Fun lipstick (LE) with Comet Blue dazzleglass (LE) and Ms. Fizz dazzleglass (LE).

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Lark About = Frozen White; Mutiny = Sky Blue (PRO); Bell Bottom Pigment = Naval, Deep Truth; Rite of Spring = Pink Opal; Other Worldly = Raizin; Fun Fun = Pervette; Comet Blue = Turquatic Glitter + gloss; Ms. Fizz = Flashmode (maybe)

Despite spending most of my day with my head in the beauty realm, I honestly don’t find I wear full makeup as often as I used to. Maybe it’s because I’m busier, or maybe it’s because I’m lazier (I’m going with the latter), but nonetheless, I tend to go for a minimal face. There are even a few days (when my skin is being nice) where I will even go sans makeup altogether!

What exactly does the “I’m Not Really Wearing Makeup” look entail? I have discovered that with the right mix of products you can get that totally natural look and look good in it.

I used Studio Fix Fluid in NC30 applied in dabs using the 194 brush, then buffed in with the 182 brush. Sculpt sculpting powder to contour cheeks using the 168 brush. Select Sheer Loose Powder in NC25 applied using the 187 brush (stippling brush). Dior Skin Shimmer in Amber Diamond with the 150 brush on apples and high planes of cheeks. Espresso and Carbon eyeshadows to fill in brows with a 266 brush. I finished by wearing 3N lipstick with 2N lipglass on lips.

What do you need? Since we are not all the same shade of skintone, nor do we all own the same products, let me give you some more generic ideas as to what you need for that super natural look.
