Sunday Stash Shopping #38: Undone

There are days when I take my time to do my makeup. I’ll place the eye shadows meticulously, taking care in being clean and not overblend. I’ll use a few products on my cheeks just for that barely there flush. Then, there are days (quite often nowadays) when I’m in a hurry and apply my makeup without much care. This is what I usually do on those days. The makeup looks a little undone, a little worn in, but it still brings out the features.




Face and cheeks: RMS ‘un’cover up only on places where I need like under my eyes and some blemishes. Otherwise, skin is bare. For blush, I just use a fluffy brush and swirl it on. I think I’m wearing NARS Deep Throat here.

Eyes: Most of my time is spent here. Brows must be filled and using a pencil like the Shu Uemura H9 brow pencil is easier and makes for less mistakes. I then line my eyes with a kohl for smudging – both upper and lower lash lines. I’ve been using grey pencils nowadays because it’s less harsh than blacks but still gives the impact. After smudging, I use a grey powder shadow to carelessly sweep on my lids and lower lash line. Here, I used Chanel single eye shadow in Taupe Gris. It is quite pigmented so I sheered it out by using the softest fluffiest brush. Then mascara.

Lips: Any tinted lip balm will do. I’m wearing the YSL Candy Balm in Mouthwatering Berry.


Hope you liked today’s look. Happy weekend!

  • Taupe Gris!! That’s one Chanel shadow that sometimes i wish I had, especially when I see it on lovely faces like yours! I’ve been wearing Deep Throat lately too-I think it’s the best NARS blush!

    • Lily

      I had to sheer out the es a lot for this or it’d be too dark. But yes Deep Throat blush is good!

  • Hey Lily, haha your undone is still pretty fancy! I do NOTHING to my eyes when I want to be undone, since they’re behind my geeky glasses anyways :p Love that flush on your cheeks! I really should get over my shimmer phobia and look into NARS blushes!

    • Lily

      I don’t even notice the shimmer in this blush! Sometimes I’d skip doing my eyes completely too 🙂

  • martie

    i wish you could do photos with closed eyes so we can see the eyeshadows better

    • Lily

      Oops sorry. I usually do but I was in a serious hurry. Line, smudge liner with finger then blend using powder shadow. I’ve done step by step pictorial before 🙂

  • Liz

    I have this desire to play around with light grey eye shadows but they look horrific with my colouring. I like this dark grey around the eyes!

    • Lily

      I don’t think my skin likes light grey either. It kinda looks ashy and old for some reason… unless it’s metallic, then it works. Dark grey however, looks great!

  • Hope you had a great weekend! Your undone is pretty much my ‘if I have the time and both’ face. Really want to try out some RMS! You recommend?

    • Lily

      Hey Noodles, thanks and nowadays, my weekends and weekdays don’t make much difference. LOL! Well, there are more people around on weekends, but I think I’ve lost track of time. Hahaha!
      Yes, definitely try out the RMS ‘un’cover up. It has this coconut scent (love or hate, really) but I don’t mind it. I did a review on it, so go check it out 🙂

  • I say the same as Sunny, I need to get over my blush shimmer phobia. Everytime I’m at a Nars counter, the bright lights make the shimmer blushes shimmer so much that I’m afraid to even look at them, let alone swatch them!

    • Lily

      See? It’s because I’ve never been to a NARS counter. I bought all these online, and that’s probably why I wasn’t spooked by all those shimmers and glitters. Deep Throat is a beautiful one though. The tiny shimmers don’t even translate on the skin!

      • Ok, you’ve convinced me! I have 2 Nars matte blushes, but I will check out Deep Throat next time.

        • Lily

          If you do, Sofia, remember to let me know what you think of it!

  • Jaa

    You wear the best “undone” makeup look, Lily! When I do, I usually don’t look like I’m wearing anything. 🙁

    • Lily

      Thanks Jaa. I think it must be the grey on the eyes. I sometimes skip wearing anything on my eyes too. Then I wear my glasses or sunnies 🙂

  • GAH you look so gorgeous! Such a beautiful soft focus look! This is the kind of look I’ve been gravitating toward lately, too.

    • Lily

      Thanks Larie 🙂 And once you put on this look a few times, it just gets effortless, right?

  • silverkis

    I love this worn-in, undone makeup look! I’m always envious of ladies who can get buy with bare skin…. gorgeous!

    • Lily

      Thanks Linda. I wouldn’t say my skin is bare. There’s still concealer under my eyes!

  • Unpaletteable

    Sooo lovely. I’m going to try and follow your steps tomorrow morning – once I start with make up, I find it hard to stop (!) and it leads to an ‘all or nothing’ situation where I feel I can’t fit it in on an average day, but I want to.

    • Lily

      Thank you and I think I know what you mean about all or nothing situation. So did you give it a go? Did you like it?
