Winter Makeup Routine

Lately I have been drawn to a much more simple look when I do my makeup. I was inspired when I saw Miranda Kerr wearing just a bright lip and smokey bronze eyes. Although the simple looks probably works best when the rest of your "outfit" is stealing the show, I thought I'd give this a try for my everyday office look.

Here is how I achieved this look: 

1. I have been skipping the heavy foundation and instead I put on Aveeno Positively Radiant tinted moisturizer everyday for a more natural but even skin tone.Plus it helps to stop my skin from drying out in this winter weather.

2. Next I put on a very light blush. I like Dandelion Benefit blush.

3. One time I had my makeup done at an Aveda salon. They used bronze eye shadow on me and I have been meaning to try that look on my own for years. I love Mac eyeshadow in bronze with Maybelline mascara in blackest black. I forgot to picture it but I always use Too Faced primer before I put on any shadow.

4. For noticeable lips I wear Maybelline lip gloss in gleaming grenadine.

5. If I am going out and I want to add more to the look, I wear Mac eyeliner in graphblack on both my top and lower lids.
