Having a bold makeup is always nice, but I usually wear this type of makeup on my daily life. I barely wear makeup on a day-to-day basis, because I used to have a really bad case of acne and I just get used to not wear makeup at all. However, when I do feel like wearing makeup, I usually go for the easiest look. I used to wear this look a lot when I was younger, and I don’t even know why I stopped wearing it. It’s so easy, and the only thing that take time is the eyeliner. However, once you master the winged liner, it’s so fast and simple.
This look is really good for beginners who want to practice blending and creating the cat-eyeliner (or also called winged liner). The gold eyeshadow in this tutorial can be replaced with any eyeshadow color. I chose NARS Etrusque because I just love the color, and it has just enough shimmers to brighten up your eyes.
The rest of the face is kept very fresh and dewy, afterall it is called Fresh Dewy Makeup look! This face is super simple, the keys are to use cream products, and to lightly powder the oily areas only. For me, I powdered under my eyes to set my concealer only for this tutorial. Why, you ask? That’s because my skin in the winter is quite dry and doesn’t actually get oily at all. If you are oily, just powder the oily areas (usually T-zone or just the cheeks). If you’re oily everywhere, feel free to powder your face, and use a powder highlighter to create the dewy look.
I just feel so young and fresh! I also love the blush I used for this tutorial. I added a touch more than I usually does, just to make my cheeks look like it’s flushing from the inside. I think the blush helps with the whole youthful appearance. This look is so appropriate for everything, from day makeup to party makeup! If you’re planning to wear it during the day, you can create a thinner line or even skip in altogether. If you like it smokier, add black eyeliner on the tightline. It’s so versatile!
Ok, enough of my rambling, let’s get on it!
