Flawless. Simple. Beauty.

Au Natural Glam In Less Than 10 Steps!

I am so excited to share this look with you! It's one that I had so much fun creating because its perfect for so many occasions. A slight variation of these steps can make for the perfect daytime glam, and as it is, it is ideally suited for everything from a bridal look to a black tie event!

The Flawless. Simple. Beauty. features on my blog are important because they give me the opportunity to share with you the fine line between too much - and just enough. These looks are promised to be effortless, and the products I use are a key element to achieving that flawless face look that I'm known for. Enjoy this post, and please comment below with any techniques or looks you'd like me to detail here.

Please note that all the products are linked below, and while I tend to have my go-to brands, I am familiar with most all of the mainstream and indie makeup lines - so if you have questions about any of these products, or would like alternatives, please let me know in the comments below.

  1. PREP - the face with Jouer Cosmetics Anti-Blemish Matte Finish Primer.

  2. APPLY - Elcie Cosmetics Micro Silque Foundation in shade Natural. I suggest application with a Beauty Blender, and I always set my foundation with powder. Tip: The right formulas will only increase the wear of the foundation - powder does not have to create a dusty look! My powder of choice is by Laura Mercier, but there are so many good ones out there!

  3. CONTOUR - apply a light contour to the frame of the face and underneath the cheek bones, using the Lorac Pro Contour Kit; and highlight cheek bones using Laura Mercier highlight in 01.

  4. PRIME - the eyes with Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray Primer. Once dry, line the rim of the eyes using Frankie Rose Cosmetics black pencil and smudge with the pencil brush.

  5. SET - the liner with Inglot Cosmetics brown shadow and blend out with a lighter and complementary warm brown shadow shade - I love the pigment of Inglot, but with a good primer the options are endless!

  6. APPLY - House Of Lashes in Spellbound using Duo Lash Glue in black and let dry. Then apply two coats of mascara to both the top and bottom lashes, I love Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.

  7. SHAPE - and fill the brows using Tamnova Cosmetics Brow Powder in shade Blondie.

  8. DUST - a sheer layer of Jouer Cosmetics Blush in the shade Peach Bouquet.

  9. LINE - and fill lips with Bobbi Brown Lip Liner in shade Bobbi, then apply Mac Cosmetics Liquid Lipcolour in shade Ladybegood to the center of lips and blend outward.
