GRWM | Everyday Natural Look Featuring Essence
I have been using my All You Need color correcting palette and let me tell you, it’s a good one! I love that it has all the colors you need in one small palette, we travel quite a bit so having something that is easy to throw in my bag that solves more than one problem is a winner in my book. I love the formula and consistency of this concealer too, it’s creamy and not chalky. I love using all of the shades too, there’s not like one that I was like “I’ll never use that color.” The green is for covering redness, the pink is to brighten, the beige is to conceal like a normal concealer and the yellow is to camouflage dark circles. Like I said, all you need to conceal all in one easy palette. I can do a post all about color correcting if you’d like, just let me know in the comments!
Undereye Setting Powder
I have been obsessed with the Light Up Your Face for setting my under eye area and highlighting. It’s the best all in one strobing palette for the price ($5.99, which I can’t believe and I need to buy one for every makeup bag and every purse) anyways I love the nude shade for the under eye area because it’s the perfect beige shade and illuminates but is not sparkly. It also doesn’t crease or cake. WIN.
I used the baked pure nude highlighter in shade 10 be my highlight. I love it because it’s a natural looking champagne/gold highlight.
I LOVE the satin touch blush in the shade 10 satin coral. It’s a natural looking light coral shade, it goes on smooth and blends in really well.
I used the Make Me Brow duo eyebrow powder in shade 02 mix it brunette. I like using a small angled brush to mix the two shades and apply this to my brows because it fills in sparse areas while still looking natural. Then I use the lash/brow gel mascara, it’s a clear gel with a medium hold. It combs through and blends the brow while holding the hairs in place.
I created a very subtle smoky eye with my Smokey Eyes Set in the shade smokey rose. There’s a light highlighting shade, a matte mauvy/purple and a shimmery medium silvery/purple/mauve. The colors look really pretty together, watch the video to see how I applied them!
I’ve been using the Volumizing False Lashes Mascara. The brush is small with different length dense bristles that grab every lash. It’s my favorite type of brush and the formula isn’t too dry and doesn’t take forever to dry either.
I just finished the look with the Volume On! plumping gloss for a natural look. The one I used was in the shade 03 perfectly dressed I love that it has menthol in it as well! You can also use this one as a top coat to any other lippy, and I can’t forget to mention it’s only $2.99!
