Soft and Glowy Daytime Makeup

May 31, 2014

Hey Everyone!

I have a new tutorial for you today! The look I was going for was something very fresh faced, glowy and soft on the eyes. This look would be perfect for daytime.



I’ve already applied my base makeup and filled in my brows, since it’s virtually the same each time I do it. I’ll just list what I used in order for anyone who is curious.

Simple Light Moisturizer

Maybelline Baby Skin Primer

NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray

L’Oreal True Match Foundation mixed with Revlon Photoready Skinlights in Bare Light

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer

Bare Minerals Concealer

Anastasia Brow Whiz

ELF Brow Kit in Medium

ELF Clear Brow Mascara

Next I moved on to bronzer. Since I was going for something super glowy, I decided to use the ELF Contouring Cream, since it adds a dewy appearance to the skin. To blend it out, I used a damp Real Techniques Sponge. This added some definition to my face, but I decided to go over it with the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer on a fluffy powder brush to add more definition and to set it.

Continuing on with the dewy theme, I chose the ELF HD Blush in Headliner to add a natural flush to my cheeks. I stippled this on with a small stippling brush and then blended it out with the RT Sponge. This was a great base, but I wanted a little more colour, so I put the Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Blush on top. This shade is super natural on it’s own, so it works wonderfully on top of the HD Blush.


After blush, I applied my highlight. For this I chose Benefit High Beam. I thought it’s metallic-like appearance would compliment the dewy glow well. I applied this on my cheekbones, down my nose and on my cupid’s bow and blended with a blush brush.


Lastly for the face, I set it with of course my NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray. This really makes the highlight come alive and settles any powder.




Now that the face portion is done, time for the eyes. For this I used the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. I primed my eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion. Then to brighten the eyes, I covered my lid and inner corner with the NYX Jumo Eye Pencil in Milk. I also added it under my brows as well to highlight. I just used my finger to blend it out smoothly.

Once the base was how I wanted it, I picked up Champagne Truffle from the Chocolate Bar Palette on a flat shader brush and placed it all over the lid.

For the crease, I mixed Salted Caramel a warm brown and Milk Chocolate a mid-tone brown and blended them into the crease and slightly into the outer V. I also placed Salted Caramel above the crease as a transition shade. To play up my eye colour, I next picked up the shade Amaretto, a brown with a distinct red undertone on a firmer crease brush. The red in this shade with make the green in my eyes pop. I placed this in the on the outer v and blended everything together.


To define the lower lashline I picked up Amaretto again and this time mixed it with Triple Fudge, a matte dark brown to smudge into the lashline. I debated a bit about what to do for liner and ultimately decided to draw black pencil very close to my lashline. That was a bit messy looking so I once again took Amaretto and Triple Fudge on a smudge brush and pressed it into the pencil liner to soften it.




Lastly I curled my lashes added Mascara Primer and Mascara to finish off the eyes.

The final step was lips. I decided to keep them neutral, so that this would be a super wearable daytime look. I chose Mac Creme Cup lipstick with NYX Butter Gloss in Strawberry Parfait on top.



There you have it! A soft daytime look. Let me know in the comments what look I should do next!

Bye for now!
