FOTD: Gentle

22. januar 2014


Hello hunnies! Today I have quite a gentle makeup look for you (at least I think it's gentle). I got inspired to create this look by Tanya Burr when I saw her 'Fresh & Pretty Drugstore Makeup for School' tutorial. I've been actually wearing this look quite a lot lately. I really didn't expect I would love it that much because I tend to change my look every time I do my makeup (I at least do a different eye makeup/use a different shadow) but I just keep on recreating it. :)

I apologize for my hair... I was having a really bad hair day. :S I was also experimenting with my 'photography', because I wanted a different background than the usual 'curtains behind me background'. I mounted my camera on a tripod and snapped away... here's what I came up with. Please let me know what you think of the pictures. :)






What I used for this look:

Face:
Illamasqua Skin Base foundation (in shade 3.5)
Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying powder
Urband Decay b6 Vitamin-infused prep complexion spray
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer (in Milk Chocolate)
e.l.f. Blush & Bronzing cream
Sleek Contour kit (I used the highlighter)

Eyes:
theBalm Put a lid on it eyeshadow primer
Sin eyeshadow (Urban Decay Naked palette)
Virgin on the brow bone and inner eye corner (UD Naked palette)
Maybelline One by One mascara
e.l.f. Mechanical eyelash curler
Catrice Eyebrow filler

Lips:
Urban Decay Revolution lipstick (in Naked)







You could use a mineral foundation instead of a liquid one (that's what I do when I don't need a lot of coverage). I really love using Sin form my Naked palette as an all over lid color - I used to use it only as a highlighter but now I see it's really pretty as a stand alone shade as well. :) I used a bronzer for this look, but you could go with only a little blush and a bit of highlighter - that's totally up to you. 

Let me know what you think of the pictures and the look itself - would you or do you wear this kind of gentle looks or do you rather go for something a bit more dramatic? :D
