Simple Everyday Makeup

How is everyone’s Monday going? The Holiday is approaching real soon, eh?! I wanted to share with you guys this super easy and simple everyday makeup tutorial which can be worn by everyone, especially those who don’t usually wear much makeup. I did 2 version – one with a simple peachy lips, and another with red lips.

I think this look is great for those who prefer a simple no-fuss makeup. Nothing too dark, nothing too bright, but with a bit of colors. This is also a look for those who prefer earthy brown tones over black. I probably would wear this for a brunch (with peachy lips), or even a dinner party (with red lips).

Eyeshadows used in this tutorial are from the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette.

*You can find other tutorials using this palette right HERE!*

Simple Makeup using Smashbox Full Exposure Palette

Today I wanted to share this oh-so simple makeup look. This is the look that I wore last night for a friend’s birthday dinner (check my instagram), and seemed to be wearing it almost quite often lately. The makeup itself is very easy, perfect for beginners if you want to do something different with your look. I think the only tricky part of this look is the eyeliner, but you can skip the winged eyeliner if you prefer. This is a very basic eyeshadow application technique, and you can obviously change the colors of the eyeshadow to whatever you like.

I’ve done something very similar to this look in my other Smashbox Full Exposure tutorial, but that one is more dramatic (with falsies and more liner, and slightly more smoky). If you prefer a smokier look, I’ve done 2 tutorials using this palette right here and here. I’ve also done swatches and a Smashbox Full Exposure palette review.

2. Using a Sephora bullet crease brush, I applied M1 on the outer V of my eyelid, blending the color to my crease.

3. Using a clean bullet crease brush, I applied M7 on just the outer part of the eye.

4. Using a clean Smashbox fluffy blending brush (from the palette itself), I applied a mixture of M2 and M3 on the crease (the picture doesn’t seem to catch those colors since it’s very close to my skin color).

5. Using the flat-end of the Smashbox brush, I applied S3 on my eyelid.

6. Using a small shader brush, I applied M7 on the outer half of my lower lid.

7. I created a winged eyeliner using Kanebo Kate Super Sharp eyeliner.
