everyday // a makeup tutorial

Despite the many tutorials I post on this blog, I really only use them for special occasions. I have not yet shown you my simple, everyday makeup. It's nothing special-as I said, it's pretty simple. But I think it will look nice on anyone and I'm excited to share it with you!

Products Used:
Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow in Seashell Pink
M•A•C Eyeshadow single in All That Glitters
Wet n Wild Mega Liner Liquid Liner in Black
Wet n Wild Idol Eyes Creme Shadow in Pixie
Wet n Wild Mega Volume Mascara
Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara
L.A. Colors Auto Eyeliner Pencil in Black/Brown
Wet n Wild Cover All Liquid Concealer Wand in Fair
Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Soft Plum (discontinued)

Alrighty, start off with a clean face!

First, I use a cream eyeshadow to prime my lids. If I'm in a hurry, I just slap this on my eyes, throw on some mascara and go, but I'll show you the long version ;) I really like this shadow because it's a pale pink-y color (though it looks orange-y here) and really complements my green eyes.

Next, I'll set that cream shadow with All That Glitters.

Then, using either a liquid or gel liner, I line my top lid. Typically I'll wing it out so it adds a little definition to my eyes.
Highlighting comes next! I can just dab a little highlight into my inner tear duct area and it helps brighten up my sleepy morning-eyes ;)
I actually use two mascaras. I'll start out with the Maybelline one to give length, then I'll build up volume with the wet n wild one.
Next come my neglected-for-much-too-long eyebrows. I never used to do my brows, but I find it really helps finish the look, especially when I'm wearing pretty minimal makeup. I start by combing them out...
...then I'll use a pretty dark pencil to lightly fill them in. Then I'll comb over them again to shape them.

Gorgeous, right? ;)

I'll finish off my face with concealer and a cream blush.

Voila! I'm done and ready to go downstairs for a bowl of Special K (that's my favorite cereal, by the way. Just the plain kind. I don't even add milk. Okay, I drink a glass of milk with it, but who wants to spoil that wonderful crunch with milk? Not me. What's your favorite cereal?).

I hope this maybe gave you an idea for what your everyday look could be! I certainly love it!
