Everyday Makeup for Blue Eyes

8 comments:
 
Since I know you guys are just dying to know how I do my makeup on a day to day basis I decided to do a post about it! Actually, I'm sure that's probably the last thing on your mind but you know what, I did my makeup this morning and the light outside was perfect for pictures so I said to hell with it. I'm going to do a big ol' boring post about my day-to-day look. A few people have also been asking me for more 'wearable' looks on my blog and it doesn't get more wearable than this if you're Meredith Jessica. 


Some of you will probably still say, 'Damn, that's a lot of makeup for an everyday look'. And you would be correct. I hesitate to call this a 'natural' look because it isn't. But I don't want to look natural. I want to look how I want to look and so this is my version of 'natural' or 'neutral' is a subtle smokey brown eye. 





I like this for day time because it's not TOO much (for me), it stays within the color range of my skin tone and it also compliments my blue eyes quite nicely. I did this look using all colors from my new Makeup Geek palettes which I am fangirling over pretty hard right now.


You'll also notice in the full face shots that I'm not wearing my beloved Faux Sasha eyelashes. As you can see, I have VERY sparse lashes and so my falsies are my best friend. I feel naked without them but I realize it's simply not practical to wear fake lashes everyday. Though, I would if I could!

BLUSH 
NARS in 'Orgasm'

LIPS 
CoverGirl Flipstick in 'Cheeky'

EYES 
Makeup Geek in 'Vanilla Bean', 'Latte', 'Mocha', 'Bada-Bing', 'Glamorous' & 'Cocoa Bear'

I hope I haven't put you to sleep with this totally boring post. I do have some more fun, colorful looks coming up I promise. But first ...


ADVICE TIME!!!

I'm hoping to bring you a 'Wear it Two Ways' prom post in the next week or so to keep up the trend of some 'wearable' looks and to show you how certain eye shadows can be very versatile - do you guys want to see something like that or could you care less? Let me know!

  1. I don't think this was boring at all! You are like surrealy beautiful. And I'm with you on everyday makeup. It doesn't have to be 'natural'.
    Your makeup highlights your features. . . Isn't that what it's supposed to do? ( :
    And I would love that prom post!

  2. Should you wear blue shadow on blue eyes? Also, what eyeliner do you recommend? I'm in the market for a good one.

    1. You can absolutely wear blue, but the trick is not to wear a blue that's brighter than your eye color. So either something very light, like an icy blue or pastel blue, or something dark like a steely blue or dark navy.

      For eyeliner, do you want liquid, gel or pencil? I like Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream for gel and Urban Decay in Zero & Perversion for pencil & liquid.

  5. I want you to be my new best friend!!! I stumbled across your website from a Pinterest post. I love how honest you are about how your every day natural look is how you want it to be. I love makeup, but *admittedly* I'm horrible at it. You're an inspiration- I will definitely be looking for makeup advice from you! (:
