Everyday Makeup: Updated

Hi guys! It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted my everyday makeup look (and it was I think the SECOND post on this blog!) and lately, when I’m not feeling overly ambitious, this is the makeup look I’ve been rocking. So essentially, mostly day-to-day at work. Daylight savings time has made me a bit uninspired, but I’ve been really liking this combination of products! It’s flattering, simple and goes with what seems like everything.

Products Used:

Primer: Too Faced Hangover RX
Foundation: Maybelline FitMe Matte + Poreless in Ivory
Concealer: Tarte Shape Tape in Fair
Powder: Becca Blotting Perfector
Blush: NARS Orgasm
Contour: Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Kit – Sombre & Lucid (mixed)
Highlight: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone
Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion (original). Urban Decay Naked Palette – Naked (transition), Buck (crease), Sin (all over lid) and Hustle (outer-v and under eye). Essence Lash Princess False Effect Mascara (lashes).
Brows: Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner in Universal Tauple and L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper (clear)
Lips: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Native

When I went to start this look I was faced with the tragedy of being completely out of my favourite foundation so I had to improvise and use Maybelline’s FitMe Matte + Poreless which if you read this post, you’ll know I don’t like it. It’s not so much the formula, it’s the shade. It feels a bit too yellow for me, but maybe it’s all in my head. Anyways, you also may notice that I’m using a different concealer! I finally splurged and ordered Tarte’s Shape Tape!!! I feel like Nicole’s post was the one that sealed the deal so I finally got around to ordering it. I’ll have a full review and pictures and what not coming up once I’ve tested it more. Initial thoughts? I’m really, really enjoying it.

I also decided to incorporate one of my top 5 neutral lipsticks in this look as well, as I typically will wear one of those five with this look. I feel like I’ve posted a look similar to this at some point, but I am definitely wearing it a lot more now than ever!

  1. Tarte Shape Tape is awesome, isn’t it? It’s ruined me for all other concealers. I don’t care if I try another concealer again, I’m happy just to use this one for the rest of my life.

    Loving that lip colour on you – so pretty and Springy! 🙂 Also based on your photos I find the foundation to be a perfect match for you! 🙂


    • Yeah I’m probably ruined now too, haha!

      I’m surprised the foundation photographed well. When I wear it and look at myself in the mirror I feel like the slight yellow undertone makes me look sickly haha


    • Thank you! Yes the original Naked is such a classic and a staple! I’ve been wearing it again non-stop this past month!

    • Thanks! It’s coming! I’ve been so behind on blogging, I really need to catch up and get back into a routine. Long story short though, I love it!
