Simple Everyday Makeup

It's nice to experiment with colorful makeup and create interesting looks but I don't always have time for that. When I have to be out of my house fast and I still want to look decent I usually use colors that can stand on their own without much blending or crease work. I also opt for colors that compliment my skin tone and can be matched with just about any shade of blush or lipstick. Its nice to have a few signature looks that you can recreate without much time or effort so you can get on with your day and still look great.

Below is one of the looks I wear when I'm short on time, its simple and quick.

For my lids I used silver. I started with the color Verve from the Naked 2 palette and added a brighter silver on top called Chrome from Silk Naturals. You can use whatever silver you have. In the crease I used a purple/brown shade from my Born Pretty Sweety shadow and blush palette, you can use brown, mauve purple or even black. I blended the crease out towards the brow bone with the color Foxy from the Naked 2 palette and lined my lids with the Cailyn gel liner.

For my face I used the Clarins illuminating base to even and prime and then I used my everyday foundation MAC Studio Fix and the MAC Pro Long Wear concealer. I finished it up with some pink blush, and set everything with my Ben Nye banana powder.

For my lips I could have went with a variety of colors but I decided to keep it a bit glamorous with classic red lipstick from Kiss New York. This shade is called Flirt Alert.

What look do your rock when you are short on time?
