Hi, y’all! I’m starting a new series on the blog today called Beauty Fridays. Mostly because I noticed that every time I do a blog post about beauty and makeup, it almost always falls on a Friday. So yeah, might as well make it a habit I guess.
So, let’s talk about a quick and easy eye makeup look that I did last Tuesday. And let’s put some emphasis on “quick”, because I actually did it in less than 5 minutes.
Using only two of my reliable eyeshadow shades in brown and beige, a quick tightlining of the upper waterlines, and two coats of mascara, here was how it looked like. I know it might sound easy, but it really was! Having the right tools (a.k.a. makeup brushes) can also do wonderful things.
Also, here’s some makeup hack for you: I haven’t been using any eyelash curler for the last 6 months. I just swipe the mascara right on my lashes, and let them do their curling thing…or whatevs. You know why? It’s because I discovered that my lashes actually look better with mascara – without curling them. So, voila! My lashes can’t look even better.
Anyhoo, the products I used in this eye makeup look were my Essence Monoshadow in All I Need, the beige eyeshadow in my H&M eyeshadow palette, my Prestige Soft Blend Kohl Eyeliner in Black, and my trusty Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Mascara. On my cheeks, I’m wearing my Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso while wearing my Maybelline tinted lipbalm on my lips. Plus, some basic BB Cream, loose powder, and eyebrow powder.
The Essence Monoshadow is, by the way, the star of this look. That’s the brown shade in the pic. It’s so easy to blend, despite being so pigmented (I only needed 1 swipe to blend). And I still had it on my lids by the time I went out of the office – so plus points for being long-wearing. I also get the same color from the pan right on my lid. It has small shimmers in it, though it doesn’t really show when applied.
How’s that for my Beauty Friday?
Have a fun weekend, babes!
