So Fresh So Clean

Recently I've been ADDICTED to fast and simple looks, especially when I just running errands in Boulder. People here are so down to earth that it always makes me feel weird when I go out with a full face of makeup.

This is been my go-to errand look:

What I used:

Face:
--Garnier Skin Renew anti-dark circle roller under my eyes
--Maybelline FIT concealer in Sand on pimples/on top of the eye roller under eyes
--MAC Studio Careblend in Medium <--amazing powder for people with dry skin. Review HERE

Cheeks:
--Physician's Formula Glow Boosting Pressed Shimmer Bronzer Light-medium
--MAC Harmony to contour
--NARS Dolce Vita <--I recently discovered that ELF studio blush in Blushing Rose is a DEAD RINGER for this.
--Fyrinnae highlighter In The Spotlight <--*gasp* this could potentially replace MAC Soft&Gentle as my HG highlighter

Eyes:
--Ben Nye Essential Eye palette in Cork (lid), Vanilla (highlight), and Mink Stole (bottom liner)
--Maybelline Colossal Volume Waterproof in extreme black
--L'oreal Voluminous on top
--Stila e/s in Nanda Devi on brows

Lips:
--a wee bit of left over NARS Dolce Vita l/s <--Got it a couple days ago and have been wearing it nonstop.

I know this look is boring, but it's so nice to be able to bust this out in 10 minutes after wearing a ton of makeup on a daily basis.

Blog sale coming up. :)

i love this fresh look on you! your signature eyeliner look is great too, but this is definitely more youthful and friendly! (less fierce)

LIKE this!

Cheers,

I don't find it boring at all. It is very effortless and pretty. :)

Maybe boring to you, but most guys appreciate this kind of look more than the all-out makeup look.

Love this look - fresh, glowy, and impeccable brows.

NARS Dolce Vita is one of my fave MLBB lippies!
