Femme Boulevard: My Most Worn Look for 2014

For the last installment of Femme Boulevard for year 2014, we decided to do something simpler, and something that’s more realistic. We post so many looks on the blog, but what do we really wear most of the time? Personally, I prefer something that takes less than 15 minutes to apply. I usually go for a subtle smokey eye that looks a little undone and carelessly applied, blush and lip product of the day. Depending on the mood, I might sport a nude lip, or a brighter coral, or a vampy berry. I switch out the products from time to time, but the method of application is the same. Here are the products I usually use.

I have been keeping everything simple, first due to morning sickness, then fatigue from pregnancy, then pure laziness, and now that the baby is out, I hardly have time for makeup! Other than using a base to mask any imperfections (and now concealer to hide panda eyes), I keep my blush light and natural. I was using lots of NARS Orgasm, but I like to switch it out for whatever I feel like. For the eyes, I have been skipping eye shadows. I use a grey pencil liner on my upper lash line and a taupe liner on my lower lash line. This is mainly due to my Project MAD but liners only are just so easy to wear. Then, I curl my lashes and apply mascara. I have been enjoying brighter and bolder lip colours just because the rest of the face is so simple. For this post, I’m wearing Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Razzberry. I was crazy about Crushed Plum and still am, actually.

Here is my most worn look for the year 2014.

  • Hey Lily, love this “realistic” idea! It’s true that a lot of the looks I post on the blog are things I never wear outside πŸ™‚ Really adore Razzberry on you! Bright lipsticks require the least effort for a lot of impact!

    • Lily

      Thanks Sunny. I took this photo at the very last minute, today to be exact, before we went out. So it’s as realistic as it can get πŸ™‚

    • Bella

      You should post your everyday makeup look, Sunny :D!!

      • It’s very close to the 5-product face I did though! Not much has changed LOL

  • Hi Lily! Good to see your FOTD again. You look fresh and beautiful! πŸ˜€

    • Lily

      Thank you Lena. I’m glad you think so! It’s been so long since I put on makeup, it felt kinda weird.

  • I agree with Lena, this is very fresh and youthful! I’m slowly (snail pace slow) converting over to the bolder lip idea with less focus on the eyes. I’ve always been an eyeshadow girl with minimal effort on lips, but I do love how a bolder lip means minimal work on the eyes!

    • Lily

      Thank you Kristen πŸ™‚ It’s so much faster and easier to keep eyes minimal. But I still love an elaborate smokey eye1

  • Bella

    You look really great! This is one of your best looks :). You also don’t look sleep deprived at all, LOL!

    • Lily

      Thank you Bella. I’m surprised I don’t look sleep deprived considering I only get a few hours of sleep at night and up every 2 hours!

  • Gorgeous!! I’m loving bold lips too and have been only using eyeliners as well and skipping eyeshadows. You look fresh and pretty!

    • Lily

      Thanks Tracy. Bright lips add life to my zombie face. Haha!

  • Love this look, it’s so fresh and effortless! I’ve been using my brow pencil on my lashline #lazy

    • Lily

      Brow pencil on lash line? Mine are too hard for that! What brow pencil do you use?

      • hourglass arch — it’s definitely a mission to get the colour off the product, but where there’s a will there’s a way LOL

        • Lily

          Oh I haven’t tried many things Hourglass before. I only have Diffused Light and the highlighter

  • I love the look and that lip color too! You look great Lily, which is not only because of the makeup but because of the added happiness of your new little man πŸ˜‰

    • Lily

      Thanks Sofia. I guess the little man has something to do with it. Hahaha!

  • Beautiful, Lily! I’ve been loving clean looks with bold lips, as well! You look so fresh! Not at all like you’ve been keeping up with a newborn, LOL.

    • Lily

      Thanks Larie. Oh, I can assure you, lack of sleep is no fun. Perhaps it’s the eye cream I’m testing? Hhmmm…

  • Jaa

    Simple and youthful! That’s how I like to wear my makeup as well. πŸ˜€

    • Lily

      Youthful is good, especially when I’m already 36!

  • Liz

    I think this is how most people tend to roll unless they work with makeup constantly or in super creative environments. You look happy and fresh!

    • Lily

      Right? This is the most worn look for everyone! Bright lips give life to dullness immediately.
