Beauty : My Everyday Make Up Look

I often do beauty posts but none of them really concerned the makeup looks I would typically use on a day-to-day basis.

My makeup look changes constantly, however I have been sticking with something similar for a while now, so thought I would share with you what I have been using.


With makeup, I usually use the E.F.L (Eyes, Face, Lips) formula. Let’s see how this formula unfolds in a bit, shall we?

  1. EYES

First off, I start with my eyebrows. The eyebrows are usually  more challenging  for me, because as you may know, its pretty hard to get that arch, shape or length right sometimes. I then conceal the edges with my E.L.F palette formula.

After that, I go in with a mauve eyeshadow shade from one of my favorite palettes from , House Of Tara.



Products used :

Pupa Milano eyebrow pencil in shade 004

ELF concealer palette in light

House Of Tara Queen Nana eyeshadow palette : Colour mauve

Mascara: Essence “The false lashes” mascara

2. FACE :

The next step after making my eyes up is my face. I start first with a base primer, then proceed to layer on my foundation and then only highlight my under eyes and forehead with a concealer. No bronzing and contouring, mostly because this is an everyday look and I am really not glamming up for anything.

Products Used :

Pupa Milano “active light” foundation in shade 070

MAC studio fix compact powder in shade NC50

Classic loose powder in “light”

MAC prep + prime Fix+ fixing spray



The lips are usually the easiest for me. I stick to nudes or reds for my everyday makeup look. On this day, I felt should have gone with a nude color on the lips but I wanted some oomph, and that’s how this red color came about.

Product used :

MAC lipstick in shade Ruby Woo

Drugstore matte lip color in shade “11”




And Viola! My everyday makeup look in less than 10 minutes!



I definitely want to start playing with my make up more so if you want to see more make up looks on the blog from me then let me know. I figure if I am going to do them regularly then clearly my everyday makeup look had to be the first one, right?

Do you have an everyday makeup look? Is it bold or soft glam?

Let me know in the comments section!
