My skin has been breaking out lately, so I’ve been trying to go light on the makeup! I’ve noticed that when I wear high coverage foundation or try to put on more makeup to disguise my blemishes, they end up being more noticeable. This look covers up a decent amount of the redness from the blemishes and brings attention to my eyes!
Taking a few minutes in the morning to myself to do my makeup is so relaxing and refreshing way to start the day! This is perfect for Zoom meetings when you’re in a hurry or just want to lounge around the house.
1) Conceal blemishes/redness
Use tinted moisture everywhere to get a little coverage and then go in with concealer and conceal the areas where you need more coverage.
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30, Natural 05 is a great option! It’s budget-friendly and a good amount of shade options. It has very light coverage and has a good amount of hydration. It wears well throughout the day and fades evenly, so doesn’t look patchy.
Dermablend Quick-Fix Body Makeup Full Coverage Foundation Stick is a great high coverage concealer! It works great at concealing blemishes, under-eye darkness, and for priming eyes for eyeshadow. It lasts well all day and doesn’t crease on me!
2) Add a lip product!
I like something light and neutral!
No Makeup Lipstick SPF 15 in Pink gives just a hint of color and moisture that lasts for a couple of hours! It is a revolutionary solid-to-serum anti-aging lip treatment designed to restore a natural rosy color. Its universally flattering shade adapts to individual skin chemistry while Neuropeptides restore suppleness and fullness. After every application, lips are left hydrated and conditioned with a soft, natural shine and the hint of youthful rosy color.
This is a cushiony, skincare- infused lipstick with a sheer wash of natural color and mineral-based sunscreen. This lightweight yet nourishing formula imparts a subtle glossy tint of color as it helps to moisturize, resulting in the look of smoother, plumper lips.
3) Focus on the eyes
Go in with a liquid shadow because it packs a big shimmery punch! I also brush some brow gel through my brows to keep them in place. I then go in with mascara primer and mascara!
Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter And Glow Liquid Eye Shadow is so shimmery and eye catching!! One coat is pretty, but you can easily layer it on for a more intense look! It does crease after a few hours, but it doesn’t matter that much to me since I’m not on Zoom for that long.
jane iredale PureBrow Brow Gel makes brows stay in place without a crunchy feeling. I took off a star because it’s not as strong of a gel as I prefer, but it’s nice if you find it on sale!
Grande Cosmetics GrandePRIMER Pre-Mascara Lengthener & Thickener is my favorite mascara primer!! It makes such a difference in your lashes and the longevity of your mascara! I can never live without this now lol
Lash Sensational Mascara Full Fan Effect is a great budget-friendly mascara! Makes my lashes super dark, long, and thick! It does smudge some, but my eyes water pretty easily. Lasts a decent amount of time on the bottom lashes.
4) Definition for the face
Grab a face palette that has a bronzer, blush, and highlighter because it’s quicker!
The 3 shades in theBalm Highlighting Powder Cheek Palette, Face Sculpting Kit, Fade Resistant Blushes/Bronzers, Balm are so pigmented, easy to blend out if you apply too much! The shades compliment my skin so well.
