Being a mom on the go with two small toddlers at home doesn’t allow me much time to play around with makeup anymore. I’ve sort of unintentionally developed my own ‘everyday’ look that gets me out the door, but yet presentable too. I’ve always had people ask me what type of product I use on my eyes, so today I’m breaking down my simple, fast, and easy look that I do everyday.
First thing I do is prime my eyes. My current favorite is the Nars eyelid primer. I think wearing a primer for my shadow keep them lasting all day and keeps my eyelids from getting oily. My three favorite neutral shadows of all times are from MAC. I first apply Soft brown all over my lid, which is the lightest shade of the three i use. I build it up till I get the shade desired, then I mix Saddle, and Brown script together and apply it to my outer crease area and blend. I do this to give my eyelids a bit of definition. Depending on whether I have time or not, I will sometime reach for a liquid eyeliner and draw on a small winged line if I’m feeling more of a prominent look that day. Finally it’s time to curl the lashes! I love this Surratt eyelash curler. It allows me to curl my lashes to its fullest potential without pinching my eyelid, or being harsh on the eyelashes. I give my lashes a quick curl, and then apply it with great mascara. I received this benefit roller lash curl as a gift, and love it! It’s not clumpy, gives me great volume, and doesn’t weigh down my lashes. Finally I line my waterline and lower line with a brown kohl eyeliner. This one from MAC is my favorite.
So those are the entire products used for my everyday makeup look. It’s simple, no fuss, easy to apply and gets the job done for me. If you are pressed for time in the mornings, but still want to apply that cute makeup look, I would suggest investing in products that are easy to use and are easy to blend. Sometimes those eye shadows at the drugstore are cheap, but they can apply on chalky and take time to blend out, time, which this mom doesn’t have in the morning. I think these neutral colors give me a natural eye look, and are just the right colors to make my brown eyes stand out. Do you use the same makeup look everyday? Or do you like to switch it up daily?
