FOTD 011913 1This look is a soft, neutral, easy everyday look using many of my current favorite products.

FOTD 011913 2Complexion:
Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup $9.99 at Walgreens, CVS, Ulta, $7.49 at Target

Ulta Super Blender Sponge $4.99 at Ulta
Tarte Blushing Beauty Bamboo Domed Blush Brush $28 at Ulta

FOTD 011913 3For my complexion, I used Revlon’s new Nearly Naked liquid foundation and powder. I didn’t use any primer or concealer because I wanted to test the coverage and wear of Revlon’s foundation without help from other products. I used a sponge applicator to blend the foundation over my entire face and down my neck and used a concealer brush to apply the foundation in a more concentrated way in places where I needed additional coverage. I applied the pressed powder using my Tarte Blush Brush, which was also featured in my January Favorites. I love that I can use it to pat the powder over my entire face, not disturbing my foundation and that the rounded edge is great for working around my nose and under eye area. *click here to see my full review with before and after pictures*

FOTD 011913 5Because this is a natural, everyday look, I wanted to keep my face rather soft. I used Revlon’s Photoready Bronzer, which is completely matte, to slightly contour under my cheek bones and around my temples a bit. I applied NARS highlighter in Albatross just atop my cheek bones and lightly down the center of my nose, then used the NARS blush Torrid to add a little color to my cheeks and finished everything with a light dusting of the Revlon Photoready Translucent Setting Powder.

For this eye look, I blended Scratch over the inner half of my lid, Melt over the outer half of my lid, Secret Service through the crease area, and highlighted under my brow and in the inner corner of my eyes with Virgin. *full review of this quad coming soon* Next I used Maybelline’s Master Drama retractable pencil eyeliner to line my upper and lower water lines. I curled my lashes and applied a few coats of Diorshow waterproof mascara, wiggling the brush side to side at the base of my lashes and only lightly pulling it up through my lashes for a natural, feathery lash look. Last, I finished my eye look by using the NARS eyeshadow single in Coconut Grove and an angled liner brush to fill in my brows and Anastasia Clear Brow Gel to keep everything in place.
