Thinking about a makeup look and what colours go well together can be a little draining sometimes, and that’s why most people have a “go to makeup look”. A go to look is a look that you know will look good and you are so skilled at it that you wont take more than 20-30 minutes to finish, depending on what products u use of course and If you have children running around.
Some days I have the time and willpower to try new things, but most of the time I just want to be quick and effective! And my go to makeup look is just that. When I am not filming, taking pictures of the process and running after Jökull, it takes me 10-15 minutes to do the look and most of the time goes in to blending both face and eyes, mascara and liner…if I want to use it.
My go to look is a gradient brown “smokey”, which is my favourite method of applying eyeshadow! But this time I added a little bit of a peachy pink just to warm the look up! Sometimes I chuck on individual lashes and eyeliner as well, but that will take extra 10-15 minutes for me to do so sometimes I don’t bother. I wont go into a step by step tutorial with my face because I already have a video on my foundation routine HERE, I will however list the products I used today down below :).
