Hey guys. It’s been about a month since my last post, so I think it’s about time I put a new one up. I hope you like it.
Okay, so I feel like most of my posts have me wearing very little makeup. I’m one of those girls that loves makeup, but generally doesn’t put much of it on in the morning because I always choose sleep over looking good. I would say the product I wear the least is lipstick, so I felt like breaking some out and making a post about it.
My focus of this look is the lipstick, so I kept the rest of the makeup very natural. The eye shadow is simple and the skin is dewy. The winter air has been drying my skin out like crazy, so dewy has been the way to go for me. It’s technically spring now, but the air is still pretty dry.
I’ve been working hard to keep my skin moisturized, especially my eye area. My secret weapon has been Vaseline. After washing my face, I apply my lotion, like usual, then cover my whole face with Vaseline. I focus especially on my eye area. I only do this at night because Vaseline makes your skin look very oily when you put it on. Vaseline is great because it creates a barrier between your skin and the environment. That helps to keep the moisture on your face from leaving your skin.
You might be a little scared of putting Vaseline on your face because it seems very thick and oily, but the Vaseline website claims it’s non-irritating, hypo-allergenic, and non-comedogenic which means it won’t clog your pores or cause acne. I haven’t had any problems with Vaseline up to this point. It’s been working great for me. It’s helped my skin look a little more glowy, and it’s much cheaper than a lot of fancy skin care.
After my skin is nice and moisturized, I put on some BB cream to even out my skin. I also put on some concealer to cover my dark circles and any other imperfections. Then I used some red lipstick as a light blush. I only have powder blushes and I wanted to use a cream blush, so I used what I could find. That was it for my skin. I didn’t put any powder on to keep the skin as dewy as possible.
Next, I gave some love to my eyebrows. As you can see above, I kept the brows looking pretty natural. I just used a little bit of brow pomade to fill in the sparse areas.
Then, I took a little bit of brown eye shadow and applied it to my lash line and blended it upward. I also brought it down on to my lower lash line. The last step for my eyes was just putting on some mascara.
Finally, I put on some liquid lipstick. It’s a pretty drying lipstick, so I slathered on some, you guessed it, Vaseline before putting on the lipstick. The lipstick is supposed to be matte, but applying something moisturizing underneath kind of gets rid of that effect for a while. I’ve done this before and the matteness started to appear again after 20 to 30 minutes when your lips dry a bit
I hope you guys like this really simple makeup look. It’s something I think you could wear for just about any event. You might want to darken the eyes a bit for night time, though. Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a really great day!
