Everyday makeup #1

Lately my everyday makeup look consists of a wash of brown or grey eyeshadow on the eyes, pinky/peach cheeks and pink lipstick. This is something I don't have to think about, can do fairly quickly, and makes me look wide awake rather than like someone who is battling pregnancy related sleep deprivation.

This has pretty much been my everyday work look for the past few weeks.

And here are the products used to create this particular look.

Illamasqua Skinbase foundation #8
NYX Twin Cake powder #07 Natural
Benefit Hoola to contour
Illamasqua Hussy Blush

Too Faced Natural Eye Palette - Erotica (all over lid); Velvet Revolver (used to blend harsh edges); Silk Teddy (inner corner and browbone)
Jordana color extend eyeliner in Black Out - smudged on top and inner lashlines
Rimmel brow pencil in Black/Brown
Australis Voluptalash Mascara in Blackest Black *

Flormar lipstick in #503

Oh and in non beauty news, on the weekend we went baby nursery shopping. I got a bit overwhelmed by it all (seriously, there are like 30 different cots out there! How am I meant to choose?), so the only thing I purchased was this cute elephant named Gazoo. The baby better like it, otherwise Gazoo will become MY toy.

Do you have a tried and tested everyday makeup look that you stick to?

  1. You look amazing! Definitely not sleep deprived at all! My everyday go-to look recently is neutral eyes and a bright red lip to spice things up. That elephant is ADORABLE btw - bet the baby will love it!! xx

  2. I love this kind of makeup Lilit :)
    I always go for a brown smoky look and nude lips. xxx

  3. awesome look Lilit ! you look great .. really like the lippy ..I usually go for neutral eyes and coral lippy

  4. I usually go for a little concealer, mascara, blush and lip balm. :)

  5. Yay for Twin Cake! I love it because it gives a lovely finish to the skin :)

  6. Very pretty! That Too Faced palette has some seriously gorgeous shades. Really love the bright pink lippie topping everything off. And that elephant is too adorable :)

  7. love the look your glowing :)

  8. Aww, I'm never too old for cuddly toys too! lol
    A girl's gotta have 2-3 options for a quick&easy makeup look, though playing with eyeshadows is also fun ;)
    This Flormar lipstick + Illamasqua blush combo looks amazing on you!

  9. My never fail everyday makeup is a very small (and daytime appropriate) eyeliner wing and coral blush. And you look beautiful btw. Pregnancy is looking good on you!

  10. <3 I think this is a very pretty everyday look. It makes me want that TF Palette! haha. As for the baby shopping, take your time, take a breath. You still have a while to go so don't let it overwhelm you! And that elephant is too cute!

  11. Pink is amazing on you! I tend to be pretty boring with just mascara and bronzer or peach blush. Could never appear awake without mascara tho!

  12. Lilit, you looks so pretty :) love all your reviews..you wearing bold colors is awesomeness :D i'm following you right away :D

  13. i love the lipstick colour!!
