How to Create an Everyday Makeup Look

We all have that easy makeup look we find ourselves going back to day after day. While the components to our looks might vary, here's what I find essential for my everyday Face of the Day (FOTD).

What type of products do I use for my day-to-day looks?
  •  Sheer foundation evens out my skintone and provides a base for my other makeup
  • Undereye concealer is essential to brighten up my dark undereye circles
  • Blush gives me that extra glow 
  • A sheer wash of eyeshadow similar to my lid color brightens up my eyes
  • Eyeliner, curled lashes, and mascara give my small eyes some extra definition
  • "My Lip But Better" lipstick finishes off the look and pulls everything together
I use pretty much the same "formula" everyday but just alter the specific products.

This has been my everyday go-to FOTD using the products I brought with me on my month long trip. Today's is a warm, pink/coral version. You might be thinking, "coral in the winter??" Not to worry it's a balmy 70 degrees here in California!

Products I used:
Face: Make Up For Ever Face & Body foundation, Revlon Age Defying concealer, Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed

Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion, Wet n Wild Comfort Zone eyeshadow palette (top 2 shades on the left), Clinique gel liner in black, CoverGirl Lashexact waterproof mascara

Lips: MAC See Sheer lipstick

What is your everyday makeup look?


  1. nice make up!

  2. Great post. Love the natural makeup look. How is the foundation you use on oily skin, do you know?

  3. Thanks! MUFE F&B works really well for oily skin too, you probably will need to use a setting powder to help mattify and set the foundation. I tend to do this anyways even though I have slightly dry skin. I love this foundation though because it has a light-medium coverage and looks really natural. Hope this helps! :)

  4. Best thing about this look is your lips! I dont know how sheer see sheer is but I suspect you have a lovely natural pigment to your lips anyway!!

  5. Thank you! See sheer is actually not very sheer I'd say it's medium pigmented, I think you should check it out it would look gorgeous with your bronzey summer looks! :)
