Simple Make-Up | Copper & Pink

I am all for winged liner, smokey creases, and voluminous lashes, but sometimes it's just easier to sweep one colour on the lid and forgo the technical liner. This copper and pink combination is feminine, fresh, and natural. And with only a few steps, it is super quick to get ready in the morning.

First, I applied the Bourgois Healthy Mix Serum foundation with the BeautyBlender. I have been loving my BeautyBlender it's so quick and gives a great finish. Next, I applied concealer, blending that again with the BeautyBlender. Then, I primed my eyes with Urban Decay's Primer Potion and applied Mica Shimmer Powder in Bronze all over my lid and along the lower lash line. I used Venus from the Naked Basics palette as an inner corner highlight and under the brow and W.O.S. + Naked 2 to blend the lid colour. I used Crave (Naked Basics) on an angled eyeliner brush along my upper lash line. Next, I curled my lashes and applied the Pixi Lash Boosting mascara. It gives a more natural, defined lash look. For blush, I used the bottom right mauve shade from the Sonia Kashuk Kiss on the Cheek palette, and I blended that using the BeautyBlender. It's great for any cream products. I also used a bit of Victoria Secret's Mega Glow Bronzer in Sun-Kissed for some subtle cheek definition. For my lips, I used two light pink lip products. Urban Decay Super Saturated Lip Pencil in Lovechild topped with NYX Lipgloss in Beige

More often I have been going for simple eye looks. Not that I will be forsaking my winged liner look anytime soon, but it is nice to have a different option for when the mood strikes.
