Friday FOTD: Informal Event

Celfie Casual FOTD

I hope everyone is preparing for a lovely weekend! My neighborhood has been smelling like barbecue and freshly cut grass all week, and I am very excited about the transition from Spring to Summer. I took some photos of my current everyday, casual makeup. This would be a good look for any informal event like picnics, bbqs, etc.

On my skin After applying the Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream with SPF 30, I used the Gressa Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation, which is still my go-to for a polished but quick makeup look (it takes minimal effort to apply). As you may notice, I am still not using concealer because the foundation provides some coverage, and because I have not found a concealer that I love. I powdered using the RMS Beauty Translucent Un-Powder all over my face. I usually only powder my T-Zone, but spending the day outdoors requires a little extra powder to prevent looking greasy. I then used a Gabriel Cosmetics blush in the color Apricot (which I just repurchased as I had my first one for years). I think it might have been the first blush from a green brand I ever purchased! It is pigmented and easy to blend, and I love the bright peachy color. I did not use a bronzer, which is so unlike me, but I wanted to keep the look more simple and more fresh by adding just a pop of color on my cheeks.

On my brows I used a pigment that I got as sample with my Integrity Botanical Haul, the W3LL People Brow Pigment #913, which I applied with a dampened angled brush, and then I “fixed” the little hairs with a coat of Jane Iredale Brow Gel in Blonde. The brow gel makes the powder last surprisingly well.

On my eyes I first applied a tiny amount of Red Apple Lipstick Eye Primer and then I used the W3ll People Elitist Mineral Shadow #87 Luminous Taupe, which is the prettiest sheer satin/slightly shimmery taupe, (luminous, but wearable) and the Kjaer Weis eyeshadow in Magnetic. Pretty subtle look, but I liked it. Then I did something that I do not typically do: I lined my eyes with pencil, the Antonym Cosmetics eyeliner, and smudged it with the black eyeshadow from the Jane Iredale Getaway Eyeshadow Palette. I typically go for a more graphic feline flick, but I think that I may start to smudge my line more often because I like how much nicer it looks in photo and it’s more subtle. For my mascara, I used the Kjaer Weis on both upper and lower lashes, because it holds up really well on very humid days like these.

On my lips I am wearing my favorite combo: Jane Iredale Lip Pencil in Spice (perfect pinky-nude), the Nudus lipsticks in 27 Kisses, and the Red Apple Lipstick Lip Gloss in Honey Badger.

In case you were wondering, this is the makeup I was wearing in this selfie (before I did my hair), and yes, I know I am due a visit to a hair colorist, but I am going to do it as soon as I step on Italian soil(in a few months) ;)

    Love that look on you! I have now tried the gressa and really like it – perfect for spring/summer. I am still waiting for your spf post :)! In the meantime, i tried the josh rosebrook spf and do not like it at all. I feel it goes on thick and greasy (i use liquid courage underneath), but then after just a couple of hours my skin feels really dry and tight despite having a film from the spf on it. Maybe due to the zinc and oils, but there is nothing in it that helps skin retain moisture, such as ceramides, or tamarind seed or hyaluronic acid. I am also not sure it really is spf 30 as I tanned and developed sun spots even after just a couple of hours in the park (in the shade!). There is also no listing of the active zinc % on the bottle. Last but not least, i feel it clogs my pores. I am quite upset I bought it as it is super pricey.

  • Very pretty! Love how you did your eyes!

  • Bambi Organics

  • Simple makeup looks gorgeous on you- I haven’t found a concealer yet that I love either which is a shame. I can’t wait to try the Gressa Foundation after seeing this!
