($42) is legit, and I know this because of my hot lunch date today with Connor and El Hub (Tabs would have come, too, but he was booked… BOO!).
It was chilly here today, so we got ramen…
Anywho… I didn’t wear a lot of makeup last weekend, and I was in the mood for a little something-something today, so while I was looking around for inspiration this morning, I found this easy bronze eyeshadow look from a MAC artist I just found on Instagram.
She’s so cute! Her name is . She posted a video using one of my favorite MAC eyeshadows ever, Bronze (if you don’t have it yet, it’s amazing), a black liner and mascara.
And that’s it!
I love the end result and plan to do this look again soon. It’s kinda glam, but not overly glam, and best of all, it’s simple.
Makeup doesn’t have to be complicated all the time, ya know? I mean, it’s fun to get up in there with everything and the kitchen sink every once in a while, but I there’s something to be said for easy-peasy.
What I really wanna talk about now is the base I’m wearing! It’s a new one… Well, new to me. It’s part of the permanent line from , and it’s SO FREAKIN’ GOOD.
I’m not sure exactly how to classify it… It’s kinda runny, so it feels comfy and light like a tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream, but it’s highly pigmented and has a very polished soft matte finish.
On the Estée Lauder website, they describe it as a foundation for sheer-to-medium coverage, but I’d characterize it as straight-up medium right out of the gate. I only need to use a little for enough coverage to even out my skin tone but keep it looking natural.
I barely had to use any today — just a few drops on either side on my face — to hide the red areas on my cheeks and to partially disguise my freckles.
I can still see some of them…so this isn’t full coverage, but I think if I wanted to go that far, this could totally get me there.
Best part is how light it feels — like I’m not wearing any base makeup at all. And it’s very easy to use. Just blend with fingers. It also comes in a mess of shades, and it’s in the permanent line, so it isn’t going anywhere.
Seriously, so legit! Do yourself a favor and try it if you haven’t already.
Oh, yeah, another thing — if you’re wondering about the lip, I can’t officially talk about it yet…but it’s coming out next month. More deets soon! 🙂
