Everyday Makeup: Simple + Natural

I was so happy to do my first makeup look video! In the past I have done similar Get Ready With Me videos but I had never dedicated one video to just makeup. I think I will do more makeup videos in the future because I really enjoyed filming this one to share.

The look that I share is simple and basic and it’s what I like to use on an everyday basis. I call it my simple and natural look. I like using vegan and cruelty-free makeup. Meaning I only use makeup brands from companies that don’t test on animals and have no animal ingredients in them. I kept the makeup very simple by using the least products as possible. This is what I do when I’m in a rush in the morning and don’t apply the extras like primer, lipstick, highlighter, etc. I hope you like the video!

FACE. I start off my look with Gabriel foundation in ‘True Beige‘. I came across this product while shopping the cosmetics section of Whole Foods. This brand had a sale and I ended up grabbing two bottles. It gives me great coverage and I like how lightweight it feels. I like applying foundation with my Shisheido Brush. (Sadly Shisheido Brush isn’t cruelty-free. Someone pointed that out and they’re right.)
CONCEALER. Then to hide my imperfections I like the Physician’s Formula Corrector + Concealer. I always use the Light side and to be honest I never use the Yellow end. Again I like this product for being lightweight and I use my middle finger to apply it on my troubled spots and even on my undereyes. I read some reviews from other buyers mentioning the roller ball stopped working for them but this has never been an issue for me. I’ve had it for many weeks now and I’ve never had any problem. Then to set everything I use Physician’s Formula Magic Mosaic face powder in Beige/Warm Beige shade. I apply it on my T-zone area to prevent shine on my face.
CHEEKS. Since I didn’t apply any lip color I kept it minimal by applying Wet N Wild Blush in ‘Berry Shimmer’ which is like a cherry color. Otherwise if I apply a pop of color on my lips I like using a brown/bronze color on my cheeks to balance the colors.
LIPS. I got introduced to Fanciful Fox lip tint when I was subscribed to Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. I really liked how well it moisturized my lips and since then I have bought their other shades as well. They have three available but recently I noticed they added a new shade to their collection in ‘Pink Lady’ and they even have new labels for their lip tints but I really like the design mine has. For my everyday makeup I used Fanciful Fox lip tint in ‘Peach’.
EYEBROWS. While shopping one day at Ross I came upon this eyebrow kit that I have been in love with! The Rich On Cosmetics Eyebrow Kit comes with four shades to choose from, a brush, one tweezer, and three stencils. I’m kind of sad I lost one of the stencils. Ever since I found this kit I find it much faster to get my eyebrows done by using the stencils. They always end up matching and now this is my favorite technique. To shade them in I use the Bare Escentuals Double Ended Brush using the concealer side. The brush is so soft and makes the application so easy. And just to make the  colors a little bit more soft I use e.l.f. Eyelash & Brow Wand to make the color subtle.
EYELINER. For my eyeliner I have two steps. First I use Milani Retractable Eyeliner in ‘Black’ as a base for my liquid eyeliner. This makes the liquid eyeliner last longer and intensifies the color. I create a thin line really close to my eyelashes. I don’t mind if they aren’t perfect because the next step is what matters. The second step is to apply liquid eyeliner and I use Milani Liquid Eyeliner in ‘Blackest Black’. I start from the inner corner and work my way out very meticulous.
MASCARA. If I want a more of an intense look I apply mascara on both my upper and bottom lashes but for this look I just did it my upper lashes. I like using Honeybee Gardens Mascara in ‘Black Magic’ which is another cosmetic item I bought from Whole Foods. I like the easy application from the brush and I apply two coats or sometimes three.

So that’s it for my simple and natural look. If you have liked the video don’t forget to like, subscribe, and leave a comment. Thanks for reading and until next time! Byeee ☺

Estaba tan contenta de hacer mi primer video de maquillaje! En el pasado he echo videos similares en los que hago Arréglate Conmigo pero nunca había dedicado un solo video a maquillaje. Creo que hare más videos de maquillaje en el futuro porque de verdad que me fascino grabar esto para compartir.

El look que les comparto es simple y básico y es lo que me gusta hacer a diario. Le llamo mi look simple y natural. Me gusta usar maquillaje que sea vegano y libre de crueldad. Osea que solo uso maquillaje de compañías que no experimenten en animales y no usan ingredientes derivados de animales. Mantuve el maquillaje bien simple usando productos lo menos posible. Esto es lo que hago cuando estoy de prisa en las mañanas y no me aplico los extras como primer, labial, highlighter, etc. Así que espero que les guste el video!


Eso es todo para mi look simple y natural. Si le han gustado el video no se les olvide darle un me gusta, suscríberse, y dejar un comentario. Gracias por leer y hasta la próxima! Byeee ☺
