Skincare: The Perfect Canvas
Before we dive into colors and brushes, let’s talk skincare. A good base is key to any makeup routine. My current go-to is the Neutrogena UV mineral tint for its light texture and effective coverage.
And don’t forget sunscreen! I’ve been loving La Roche-Posey sunscreen – a little gem I discovered in Montreal.
Remember, even in winter, every part of your skin deserves protection.
Finding the Right Foundation
Moving on to foundation, I recently fell back in love again with Wet n Wild’s tinted hydrator.
It was a bit of a journey finding the right shade, but it was worth it.
What I love about this product is its versatility – it’s not just a foundation but also works beautifully as a light concealer, especially around the eyes.
A Shoutout to Silk Naturals
I can’t write this post without mentioning Silk Naturals.
This indie brand has become a staple in my routine.
Their loose powder products like the medium ash loose eyebrow powder offer an incredible natural finish that’s perfect for enhancing rather than masking our natural beauty.
Eyeshadow: The Dream Matte Quad
Now, let’s talk about the eyeshadow that has been a huge crush for me – the Dream Matte Quad from Silk Naturals.
These matte shades, like ‘Rome’ for base and ‘Canyon’ for depth, are superb for creating a subtle yet impactful look.
They’re wonderfully forgiving for those who might not be eyeshadow experts, blending seamlessly for a natural finish.
Application Tips for a Natural Look
Eyeshadow application can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. I prefer a more natural look, focusing on enhancing my eye color and shape.
Using a round eyeshadow brush for a pop of color, I create a simple, effective look without complex techniques.
Remember, makeup is about enhancing your natural beauty, not covering it up.
Mascara: The Finishing Touch
To finish the eye makeup, a good mascara is key.
L’oreal Lash Paradise has been my go-to for its sensitivity to my eyes.
A neat and tidy eyshadow tip for a cleaner, more defined look is to use a small amount of eye makeup remover to tidy up the edges of your eyeshadow, giving a more lifted appearance.
Let’s wrap this up
There you have it, a glimpse into my relaxed makeup get ready routine.
It’s all about finding products that work for you and applying them in a way that enhances your natural beauty.
I hope this post inspires you to find joy in your makeup routine, whether it’s a quick five-minute routine or a leisurely session in front of the mirror.
Until next time, stay beautiful and true to yourself!
