I often get questions from my viewers if I wear the bright and dramatic looks that I create on my Youtube channel out. Well, the answer is, yes sometimes I do - if I'm going out to a club, or to some special event or just when I feel like it. But my day to day makeup look is very simple and pared down. For daytime I usually wear a natural look, something very easy like this:
It just isn't practical to have to touch up and check my makeup all day to see if everything still looks good. And who wants to wear heavy makeup for a long day at the office? So this is more along the lines of what I would throw on day to day.
I focus on getting my skin looking good, reducing under eye dark circles (the plight of porcelain doll fair skin is that circles are really hard to conceal and show up very easily) and adding a touch of color to my face. Either I'll wear a colorful lipstick (red, pink, coral) and go neutral with everything else, or add a nice color of blush on my cheeks. I rarely wear totally nude dead-looking lip products with minimal makeup, it washes me out and makes me look so unhealthy. For neutral lips, I go for the "my lips but better" option.
What I'm wearing today:
Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc, Makeup Forever Lift Conealer Nr. 3
