Makeup has become one of my favorite hobbies and I definitely enjoy collecting cute pieces, perfecting application on myself, and applying it to others. Now of course nothing is more comfortable than a fresh face; however, I love to simply enhance my own beauty with some key looks. I also enjoy the smile and priceless reaction from women when I give them the perfect “beat” face. So here are my four quick and go-to makeup looks along with examples via recent tutorial and/or face of the day (fotd) video.
This beauty list is in no particular order because they are all equally awesome, fantastic, and gorgeous.
- MONOCHROMATIC eyeshadow looks good on all women but I think it looks featuring BLUE, PURPLE, and TURQUOISE eyeshadow PHENOMENAL on women of color. My favorite purple palettes are the BH Cosmetics 120 5th Edition and the Coastal Scents Winterberry because both offer a variety of gorgeous variations within the purple family. My favorite blue and turquoise eyeshadows are Chaos (bright blue matte) and Unhinged (metallic shimmer turquoise) form the Urban Decay Vice 4 palette. I also like Dalia and Zola from the Juvia’s Place Masquerade palette because the pigmentation is outstanding.
2. MODEST GLAM is another makeup look I love to rock because alone it gives a subtle sexy vibe and can easily be dressed up by adding some extra smoke. This type of look is great for date nights because it screams “romance me husband” and “I’m yours” especially in the moonlight. For these looks I love the velvety texture of the Lorac palettes including the Lorac Pro and Lorac Mega Pro collections.
3. BARE FACED BEAUTY is definitely one of my top four because the No Makeup, Makeup Look is the perfect way to enhance your natural beauty. I really like to wear this look with either a completely natural vibe without any blush or highlight or with extra highlight alongside a light flush (soft blush application). I usually call these looks my mommy makeup because it literally takes my 5-7 minutes to complete it from start to finish. This was my favorite makeup look during all of my pregnancies.
4. RED CARPET READY is for when I want to go ALL OUT! These looks definitely bring out the oooos, ahhhs, and plenty of compliments. I save these looks for weddings, celebrations, or a random Tuesday when I have the extra time. Oh and 9 times out of 10 these looks include glitter and lashes galore.
I hope you enjoyed this quick look at several ways I frequently apply my makeup. As the trends change with the times I am certain these looks will never go out of style. After all, the Monochromatic, Modest Glam, Bare Faced Beauty, and Red Carpet ready looks are timeless classics and should be respected as such.
So tell me in the comment section, what’s your favorite (go-to) makeup look?
