Sunday Stash Shopping #76: My Boring Go To Look

I’m not very adventurous when it comes to applying my daily makeup. I have 3 kids to juggle so I always end up with similar looks. I can be using different products, but my technique is most of the time the same. I’d use a brown shadow on my lids, sometimes with liner, sometimes with mascara only, blush and lipstick. I might change up the lid and lip color, but I always end up looking the same. I also think having hooded eyes contribute to this – no matter how crazy I apply my eye shadows, my hooded lids will cover most of it. LOL!

As usual, here, I applied a brown shadow on my lids, edges blended out. I used Urban Decay Mia, from the 15th Anniversary Palette, and mascara. No liner. On my brows I used Bobbi Brown brow gel in Mahogany and MAC Chamomile as brow highlight (I hit pan on this shadow. YAY!)






On my cheeks is Bobbi Brown powder blush in Pale Pink. It looks very bright in the pan and the blush is really pigmented. So, I like to use a very soft fluffy blush brush to diffuse the color onto my cheeks. On my lips, I’m wearing Marc Jacobs Infamous.






I just clicked on the “Looks” tab and browsed through the thumbnails. Unless it’s very different, like a red lip vs smokey eyes and nude lips, most of my other FOTDs just look the same! But to be fair, in real life, the difference is more apparent. So for my next few stash posts, I’ll experiment with different eye colors. I’ve been using neutrals and browns for too long. You guys must be bored!

  • But neutrals and browns are YOU!! You are the queen of them I swear haha! It’s what I think of you when it comes to makeup looks! And your looks? Are the most wearable of any blogger I follow which is why I love you.

      Right? I love my browns and neutrals! I don’t think I can live without them. hahaha

    Seriously, why change things up? This is a great go to look. I like how varying a lip color would get you a sultry evening look or as you’ve done here make a great every day look. Hit pan on a shadow?! O__o what dis sorcery you practice???!!!
    I always have had a hankering on the BB Pale Pink. It looks like a great shade for adding some life into my face when I’m feeling especially sallow.

      My every day makeup won’t change even if I wanted to. Lol! I thought it would be nice to add a bit of colour once in a while…

  • I agree with the comments below, you look great with neutrals and why change the look if it works and looks good on you? I am the same too, my looks are very similar which is why I don’t see the point of posting my makeup looks and again, like you, with the exception of different lipsticks shades, all my MOTD looks the same. LOL!

      Thanks Shireen. I just thought that because I wanted a little variety for the blog. Also, I usually remove most of the makeup immediately after photo taking anyway!

  • Someone asked me once, why I don’t post selfies on instagram. It’s because I always look the same! I may use a different set of products per day, but my goal look is always the same — ‘no makeup’ makeup.

    I might look different at times because I have crazy lip color days. But generally, I go for the same look.

      Don’t we all? I mean, srsly tho. I always believed makeup is to enhance not change. I don’t understand how some YouTubers or Instagrammers could go out looking like … that.

  • Liz

    You look gorgeous! No need to fix what ain’t broke.

    • Lily

      Thanks Liz. It’s been a while since I was online, sorry for the late reply!

  • I don’t think it’s boring at all. This kind of look just really works for you! Love the colors.

      Thanks Melissa. I thought it would be nice to do something different just for the blog, but I’ve been away for 2 weeks already, and still don’t feel like blogging. Hahaha!
