Every day I do the same makeup routine for my Nude But Not Naked Look. One product that I absolutely CAN NOT live without is my Advanced Night Repair. I use it as my night serum and also mix it in with my foundation as one of my beauty tricks. This serum fights all key signs of aging,hydrates your skin, and gives you a healthier looking skin. Ladies, it’s ok to start early with using anti-aging products the earlier the better!
After mixing my foundation with the Advanced Night Repair serum I like to set everything with Foundation Powder. In my bag, I have two different kinds of foundation powders. They both are medium to full coverage and both do the same job. I love the Make Up For Ever Pro Finish and The Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation powder.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place High Cover Concealer is MY TOP concealer that I truly can not live without. You can easily use your fingers to apply, it’s very convenient for travel, doesn’t crease, and its 12-hour wear! I seriously am obsessed with it!
You need a good bronzer some people prefer a matte finished bronzer while others prefer a little shimmer. Either way, you go the top 3 bronzers that are always inside my beauty bag are the MAC Bronzing Powder in Refined Golden, Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Matte Bronzer, and the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess in Extra Deep.
My Favorite part of my everyday makeup routine is the HIGHLIGHTING. Right now the market is definitely a little oversaturated with highlighters. You can find cream highlighters, powder highlighters, liquid highlighters, etc. However, I keep it very simple. My two top favorite highlighters are the MAC Poppin pigments in Melon, and the Becca Champagne Pop.
I have been using the same blush for about 5 years. I have tried to switch it but I just keep going back to the same one. Even though I do have other blushes in my makeup bag, there is truly nothing that tops my favorite MAC Melba Blush.
When I try to go for the “Nude But Not Naked” look I do not put eyeliner and just focus my eyes with Mascara. I have to put on at least two different kinds of mascara for me to create my big voluminous and lengthening look. I have about four mascaras that I can’t decide which one to use every day. Better Than Sex by Too Faced, They’re Real by Benefit, Effet Faux Cils Babydoll by Yves Saint Laurent, and Tarteist lash paint mascara by Tarte.
To finish my look I like to use neutral but mauve color on my lips. These are my top three lip liners and lipsticks that I have in my bag. The lip liners I use are Double Wear Stay in the color Spice by Estee Lauder or MAC lip liner in the color Cork. For Lipsticks, I stick to Creme in your Coffee by MAC, Earthy Marsala by Hard Candy, and Viva La Glam II by MAC.
Well, there you have it!
These products are my MUST HAVES in my cosmetics bags to create a “Nude But Not Naked” look. Every day I go for a simple natural makeup.
