This look… To say that it’s one of my favorites is an understatement. I’ve been wearing it FOR YEARS, and it has shown up many times on MBB in different iterations (most recently in the MAC Hyper Real Palette post), but I don’t know (or at least I can’t remember) if I’ve ever really broken it down before.
I don’t know why, but whenever someone asks me about it, I’m always surprised — maybe because it doesn’t seem like anything special — but now that I think about it, there must be a reason I rely on it so much.
I’ve done this look in moving cars, office cubicles, on public transpo, cramped airplane bathrooms (during turbulence), and lately with a wiggly toddler in my lap!
The eyes are lightly defined with shimmery bronze, plum and brown, and they’re paired with a soft coral-peach on the cheeks and lips. The skin is just shy of medium coverage and has some sheen to it.
It’s not an advanced or complicated look, but who cares? That makes it practical and realistically doable, and I like how I feel when I wear it. I can wear it pretty much anywhere and feel like the best version of K-$ is in the house. 🙂
I’ve listed the steps and products I use down below, but as usual, the brow gel, mascara, eyeliner, highlighter, bronzer, and even the foundation and lipstick, are easily substitutable.
That said, I do think that two of the products I use are “musts” (in makeup land, I use that term loosely) because they make the look what it is.
