Even though I LOVE wearing makeup there are just some days when I need a break – I can’t be the only one! My love for wearing/doing my makeup doesn’t really go well with “taking a day off” so what is a girl to do? Wear “no makeup” makeup, of course! This style of makeup is so refreshing because you end up looking like a better version of yourself while still looking completely natural. Who doesn’t love that?
This look is SO EASY (seriously – whether this is your first or ten thousandth time wearing makeup you’ll be able to do it) and it uses all Neutrogena products that you can pick up at your local Target. I know we all LOVE to peruse the aisles at Target so what better place to buy your cosmetics, right? I could spend all day there.
But anyway – For this look we’re focusing on perfecting the skin while accentuating our eyes, brows, and lips for a soft but cohesive look that will get you through the day.
First we’re going to start with the Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Liquid Foundation and apply it to the center of our face as well as over any spots of discoloration. This product is great for a ton of different reasons but I love it because it lasts all day through this summer heat. You guys know I do NOT mess around with my product choices this time of year. I need things that work and they need to work well!
To set the foundation I suggest using the Neutrogena Shine Control Powder over the areas where you applied product in the previous step. If you prefer to apply this all over your face feel free – the translucent formula will blend into any skin tone and will provide a seamless finish. I don’t have oily skin so I only apply it on top of my foundation but if you need a little extra shine control use it as needed.
That’s it! Complexion is taken care of so I like to move on to my eyes/brows next. For this look I used my Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in the color “Spicy Chocolate” which is a rich chocolate brown that gives a softer look than your typical brown and helps to thicken the lash line and give a slightly smoky look. I especially love that it has a rubberized foam bit on the end that you can use to smudge out your liner with ease. I also use this pencil for my brows!
To keep the look fresh and natural I decided to reach for the Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara to give my lashes natural volume and definition. I love that in two coats I get seamless, non clumpy, coverage that takes my lashes from looking average to looking absolutely amazing. And the best part is that they don’t look fake or artificial – they just look like my natural lashes on steroids which helps to keep the “no makeup” makeup theme going.
And last but not least I rounded out the look with the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth color stick in the color “Juicy Papaya” on my lips. You all KNOW that I love me some chubby lip pencils and these are no exception. They give a medium-opaque coverage that looks so beautiful that I want them in every color.
That’s it! I was inspired to create this look by a look after seeing a video on Neutrogena’s YouTube channel featuring Hayden Pantierre and her “Day Off” makeup look. Check it out!
Speaking of Neutrogena products at Target I almost forgot to mention that there is going to be a Beauty Concierge event on August 24 (with limited quantities available) so be sure to check with your local store for details! There is also an AWESOME Cartwheel deal happening right now that gives you 10% off all Neutrogena Cosmetics. If you haven’t downloaded the Target Cartwheel app yet you absolutely need to – they always have great deals and I save SO MUCH money!
