Daily make up

I’ve never been a fan of eye make up, and mainly kept them “nude” with some mascara and a little black line when going out.

So lately I’ve been trying a simple make-up with some beige and light brown to enhance my eyes but avoid being too chic for a day at the office and above all, I have been using some real brushes, quite helpful in the end.

Most of the time, I have 5 minutes to do my make-up and since I have dark eyes I cannot abuse of dark colors if I don’t want to look real mean or like I am going out ;) so this is the best option for dark eyes according to me and can be made quickly without any risk of ruining the rest of your foundation or base.

WHAT TO USE: A light beige close to your skin color (here Artdeco 551), a taupe/light brown ( here Artdeco 517) and a white (here Maybelline 01 Snow White) + types of brush (from the top): A small one for light colors, a larger one for dark colors, an angled cut brush for under your eyes and precise lines and a pinceau brush to speed the color corectly.

Make sure the color is NICELY SPREAD on your eyelid and the borders end SMOOTHLY. Then use the angled cut brush to add a LINE under your eye and give it a bit of a SMOKEY look.

And the. i use the “mineral skin finis”h in medium deep from MAC as a bronzer and i finih with the “rose au joues” in “over rose” from Guerlain. Hope this helps! Xx Béné
