Less is More - Simple, Everyday Makeup

I've been loving this simple makeup look so much that I decided to update my homepage banner!
Hey Guys!
Lately I've been in a makeup rut, really busy and haven't had the time to experiment too much with my makeup. However, I've been loving this simple eye and face makeup and playing up my lips in a variety of different shades. Most of the time I don't even wear a blush, but I thought Tarina Tarantino Parasol blush would look really good with my lip combo. This takes me all of 5 minutes to do and with some corner lashes to accent my eyes, it is a beautiful, yet simple look. I really need to buy a full size of the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin because I've pretty much used every last drop of the sample I have. Has anyone tried Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden or Greed? I was thinking about picking up those as well when I purchase Sin. Let me know if you have used and like either of those!

  1. Gorgeous as always! love the shirt btw!!

  2. That's a gorgeous look!! Love your shirt too!!

  3. I currently have the Eden primer and for me it creases almost all the time and I can't wait till it's finished so I can switch back to the UD original primer.

    Gorgeous makeup look!

    1. I'll have to skip Eden. I was thinking of trying Soft Ochre paint pot by MAC. Have you tried that one? Thank you!

  4. You look stunning & your top is adorable! x

  5. Your makeup is flawless and so are you :)

  6. Eden is nice. I swatched it last time in store. Greed is gold, very gold. It was too much for my liking. But Sin is one of my favorites, along with the original UD eyeshadow primer. :)

    1. I think I may just pick up a full size of Sin and the original :) Thanks for your advice!

  7. You look beautiful as always! I love the urban decay Eden primer potion. It's actually my favorite of the bunch. I'd check it out for sure. Ps I loved your makeup collection video...thanks for sharing!
