Femme Boulevard: Simple And Defined For Every Day

It’s tough. I’ve been losing some of my blogging mojo lately. It might be due to the fact that my back is still uncomfortable, and the internet connection has been really slow. I used to schedule my posts 2 weeks ahead, and I am now burning the midnight oil. It also took us longer to come up with this month’s theme. Joey and Teri were keen on doing a drugstore makeup only post, but I’m on a no buy. Scrap that. So for today, we decided to show you an every day makeup. This kind of makeup is my go to. When I don’t know what to do, I always fall back to this. I might use different colours, but the colour placement on my eyes will be the same.

I took these photos just before going to work the other day. The morning sunlight is quite forgiving, but it still washed out a lot of the colours. For this every day look, I keep everything simple. My makeup routine is foundation, powder, brows, eyes, mascara, blush then lipstick. In the photo above, I used Rachel K Mineral Color Control Blemish Balm. A 10 in 1 CC cream. I am still testing out this product, so do expect a review soon. To set it, I used Dior Diorsnow Fresh Reveal Light-Reveal Colour Correcting Powder in 001. This powder is new from Dior’s Diorsnow range. I will talk about this powder later 🙂 I defined my brows with my beloved Shu Uemura hard pencil in Seal Grey and the mascara is Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara.

On my eyes, I used Bare Minerals eye quad in Truth. I bought this last year, wore it a few times, but I never actually wrote about it before. It is a very user friendly palette, great for every day! I like to keep the lighter colours on my lids, and save the darker shades for my outer corners and my lash lines. I am not wearing any eye liner here, but when I have more time, I like to use my go to liquid liner for a clean sharp line. I paired this look with a coral blush and a coral pink lip which is Shiseido Perfect Rouge Sublime.

My fellow Femmes have come up with their very own every day makeup look too. Do check them out for more ideas –> Joey from Joey’s Space and Teri from Bellachique.

What is your daily makeup routine? Do you have a particular look you’re more comfortable with? Something to fall back on when everything else fails?
