The amount of neutral products in my makeup drawers has really gotten out of control. But there is rarely a time when you see anything but on my face so it never hurts to have options, no? As I've gotten older, I know what works on my skin and what doesn't. Golden, bronzey hues make me feel my best self.
Aside from the Elizabeth Arden bronzer which I just recently acquired, these products have been staples in my makeup bag for months. On any given day during the work week, this is what I'm wearing. It's work appropriate and so easy to change out the lip color if I'm wanting a bolder look.
I created my own MAC palette because it really simplifies my routine. Definitely recommend creating your own custom palette if you're in a rush in the morning. So basically everyone cause who isn't? I love the warmer tones and Rule looks a-mazing on blue eyes!
Because I prefer a dewy finish over matte, I typically don't set my face. However, as we transition from a dry winter into suddenly HOT weather (because Texas, y'all), it's a must but I ONLY apply it where I need it. For me, that's the t-zone. I've been using the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light and it's perfection. It doesn't provide any extra coverage and it's not cakey and adds to the dewy finish. Definitely a win for me.
As a blonde, I typically don't have a choice to not do my brows. They would literally be non-existent. Sidenote, have you ever googled pictures of celebs without brows? So scary. When I'm in a hurry, this tinted brow gel is genius. It provides major color pay-off and my brows are done in two seconds.
If you've got intense under eye circles like I do (mine are hereditary but mom life certainly doesn't help) then this Bobbi Brown under eye corrector is a must. Even the best concealers don't always cover those suckers up. A touch of this stuff under each eye combined with my fav concealer is MAGIC.
When you find a blush that you can wear with red, berry, pink, nude lips, it becomes your favorite and a MUST have. Also doesn't hurt that it's $3!! It's replaced my beloved Exposed.
I've considered creating a makeup tutorial for this look. Thoughts? Interested? Yay or nay?
