So without further ado, here are my steps for looking daytime glam with minimal effort.
Face and cheeks
For face go with an easy to blend concealer and then buff on a powder foundation. In this look I've used my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Sand 20 and buffed on NYX Twin Cake Powder Foundation in Natural 07.
For cheeks a blush with multi tones or a hint of shimmer is best, as you can skip the contouring and highlighting step. I used MAC Mineralize blush in Dainty (which I bought from Jen's blog sale), but other good colours too use are Nars Orgasm, BYS Coral and Benefit Coralista.
Eyes & Lips
On eyes apply a wash of shimmery brown eyeshadow all over the lid, blending any harsh edges. Use an eyeshadow that has enough dimension in it to look good on its own. Think MAC Satin Taupe which has enough depth. I used Chanel Ebloui which I also picked up from Jen's blog sale last week. Skip the eyeliner and finish with 2 coats of mascara (I used Australis Voluptalash Mascara in blackest black*).
On lips wear the brightest lipstick you're comfortable wearing. Whether it's red, pink or coral, go for something bright! And skip the lipliner, because with a lipliner you'll look a bit too made up, whereas without it you'll look more daytime appropriate. The lippy I used here is Ever Starlight in Rosetto.
And voila! The daytime glam look is finished.
