Hmn, I change my look pretty much every day, but lately since I’ve been really gung-ho about HE brands it’s mostly been these things in some way:

Eyes – Burberry Rosewood, Burberry Pale Barley, Dior Garden Roses palette.
Lips – Burberry/Guerlain/Bobbi Brown lip gloss (this varies, but a natural look) and almost every morning Dior Lip Glow.
Cheeks – Dior Rosy Glow in Petal, Chanel horizon or Burberry Cameo.

Covergirl “Mink” all over lid, whatever beige/highlight I can grab to blend towards browbone, Tony Moly gel liner winged out, whatever mascara nearby, Skin79 Hot Pink bb cream, and whatever lip product I grab first. Lol, I’m such a lazy one.

If I do the whole routine in one sitting, it takes 10-15 minutes.
Face: foundation, peach blush, concealer, and maybe powder.
Eyes: Define brows, tightline with green or black liner and put green liner on lower lashline, and curl my lashes.
Cheeks: Avon [Mark] berry red lip stain.

I’ve been sticking to a singular look lately:

Face: Bobbi Brown stick foundation and setting powder
Cheeks: Physicians Formula Mood Boosting Blush in Rose
Eyes: From the Naked palette, I’ve been using Smog all over the lid, Naked in the crease to blend it out, and Virgin in the inner corners and to highlight the brow bone. UD 24/7 liner in Zero and Lancôme Hypnose mascara.
Lips: Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Nude Rose (or Rosy Nude… I forget)

I am a neutrals girl all the way. I love my looks to be very natural, so I only switch out my lip stick to either a “my lips but better” color, a classic red, or a wearable berry or pink. But my eye look is pretty much the same since August or September (I know!) I have been using Wet n Wild’s Walking on Eggshells (on my 2nd palette of this, by the way) with Make Up for Ever’s Aqua Creams in 12,13, and 15 as a base. I wear the look with a crisp wing liner using my MAC blacktrack or if I’m in a hurry, I use K-Palette’s 24 hr. Tattoo Eyeliner, Maybelline Falsies, and on my cheeks I use the Aqua Cream in 5 as a base and use Nars Orgasm on the apples and Luster on the cheeks blended with Hoola as a contour and High Beam as a highlight 🙂 And yes, this has been my signature look since last year! 🙂

Right now it’s a very simple due to time constraints –

Eyes: Sephora (or whatever brand I have on hand) liquid liner, winged out at the edges in a gentler cat eye.
Face: Maybelline Cream Mousse blush in Soft Plum. (Maybelline FIT foundatin if I have time.)
Lips: Whatever lipstick I have on hand, but usually a muted red or fuschia.

Eyes: Venetian Tarnish Metal-X shadow blended up to the brow with Feline to line

Cheeks: Fresh Honey or Early Morning Mineralize blush

Lips: Legendary Mattene as a stain

OR

Party Parrot on the lips and some black cat eye liner with Aurora pigment in the crease.

Face: NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, MAC Studio Finish Concealer, and MAC MSF Natural.
Cheeks: NARS Deep Throat or NARS Taos with a little NARS Laguna.
Eyes: MAC Blacktrack Fluidline then I line the upper and lower lashline (black kohl liner on top and matte black powder shadow on bottom), and then I coat the lashes with lots of black mascara. Brows filled with MAC Charcoal Brown.
Lips: Lip balm or a sheer rosy balm or stain.

Takes somewhere between 5-10 minutes. Most of these products are staples that I’ve used for years. The only recent addition is the integration of NARS Taos, but it quickly rose to the top of my blush favorites.

Foundation: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua

Cheeks: NARS Blush Gina or Orgasm

Eyes: Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream #13 (champagne)
Maybelline Full N Soft Mascara
Gosh eyeliner in brown

Lips: Usually a Bright Colour or NARS Roman Holiday.

Time: 10-15mins 🙂

My everyday makeup takes me about 15 minutes. This might seem like a lot for some people but I have to look smart for my job

Face: L’oreal studio secrets anti-shine primer,Rimmel lasting finish 24 hour, Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer,Maybelline dream matte powder, Too faced chocolate soleil bronzer, Benefit coralista

Eyes:UDPP,UD sin on lid, MAC cork in crease, blanc type as highlight and concrete through brows, dark brown eyeliner (whichever is to hand!),Estee Lauder sumptuous mascara

Lips: Clarins instant light lip perfector in 01

I currently have on lash extensions so I go lighter on the eyeliner and eye shadows. Lately I’ve just been wearing shadow and some mascara on my eyes. I’ve been using sculpt foundation by MAC, prolong wear concealer, and shell as a highlighter.

The only thing that changes would be my eyes, lips or cheeks. Also depends on my mood and what I am wearing, it’s a split between the below.

Currently:

Face: Lorac oil free foundation, Arbonne powder, Lancome Rénergie eye multiple action concealer, NYX bronzer, blush (ULTA Pressed Mineral Blush, Physicians Formula Happy Booster, Tarte Amazonian Clay or Napoleon Perdis Blush Patrol)

Eyes: Calvin Klein brown eyliner (for brows), NYX jumbo, Calvin Klein cream shadow, Hard Candy mini shadows (silvers and golds), Hard Candy fiber mascara, Estée Lauder mascara and a random black eyeliner.

Lips: EOS balm, random liner, Lorac 3-d gloss, B&BW lipgloss, CG lipstick, MAC lipstick and a Calvin Klein gloss.

Face: any BB Cream and Guerlain Meteorites

Cheeks: I am trying to hit pan with The Body Shop Roseflower blush, so it’s been that on the cheeks lately.

Lips: same a cheeks, doing Project 10 Pan, so I have been using the Body Shop lipstick in a blue-based fuchsia pink

Eyes: usually a neutral cream shadow, like Benefit R.S.V.P. Or Stila Shadow Pot in Honey or Amber. If I have more time, then may be I’ll dab some more colorful powder shadow on top.

okay, this may be a silly question but what exactly does “BB” stand for in “bb cream”???? I don’t get out much (with a newborn) LOL!!

Pro longwear foundation (i dont need to powder my face with this foundation), mufe full cover concealer, mac satin taupe on eyes, nars night breed in outer corners and crease, avon supershock gel liner (I LOVE, SO PIGMENTED), collection 2000 liquid eyeliner pen, benefit bad gal mascara, mac blunt as contour, Mac x-rocks blusher, Nars copacabana multiple as highlight. Mac cherish lipstick on lips with Mac vino lined around the edge and blended in.

I know it sounds like lots of work, but it really does take 20 minutes to do!

FACE: MAC prep&prime spf 50, bourjois healthy mix serum foundation, MAC well dressed, MAC harmony, Dior amber diamond highlight, MAC mineralize skinfinish natural to set.
EYES: MAC painterly paint pot, urban decay sin e/s all over lid, clinique chocolate chip e/s as liner and crease, clinique lash power mascara
LIPS: MAC viva glam cyndi lipstick.
Approx 20 minutes!

Urban Decay Naked Palette Sin + Buck, gel liner for the upper lash line, Urban Decay Bourbon or Whiskey on the lower lash line (smudged out with Darkhorse). Some concealer and mascara, MAC Tea Petal on cheeks, and maybe some lipstick. It’s probably 10 minutes.

Hmmmm – probably Benefit’s Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP as a base,and their Up in Smoke or WnW Nutty on the outer 2/3 of the lid and in the crease. GOSH Metallic Brass liner (their liners are so good), MAC Dollymix on my cheeks with a bit of By Candlelight if I need some “glow” and Plumful or Revlon Berry Smoothie Lip Butter on my lips. Oh, on my face, MAC Pro Longwear concealer and Pur Minerals 4-in-1 (it is so much faster than liquid foundation!)

Face: MUFE HD Foundation, MAC Prolong Wear Concealer, MAC MSFN to set, and MAC Warm Soul on cheeks, contoured with Bourjois Bronzer
Eyes: Sin on lid, sidecar outer lid, buck and naked in crease, some eyeliner, and covergirl mascara
Lips: Revlon Creme Brulee lip butter

I don’t really have a go to look. I always try to change it up but I guess I’ve reworn this a couple of times. Its a matte cool toned eye and red lips. Loreal infallible e/s in endless pearl(matte skin tone shade) all over lid, maybelline color tattoo e/s in tough as taupe(matte taupe) in the crease, very subtly winged black liner. Mac warm soul blush or nars sin just on the back upper part of my cheeks, not too far in. And lips lined with mac brick with clinique spiced apple(very wearable brick red shade, not too bright). I can do it super fast like 5 min and about 4 of those are spent on the liner.
