I needed a *look* today to balance my uncooperative hair, pulled away into a restrictive bun, so I decided, why not go for red?

Here’s a quick look I threw together using six products: tinted moisturizer, a beige-y hued blush, highlighter, a brow pencil, mascara… and finally, a blue-toned red lipstick.

My approach to make up, especially on weekdays, is minimal effort, limited product usage count, and a pop of *something* so your efforts are visible to human eye.

Here’s where I started, and all the steps that led to where I ended.

bare minerals Complexion Rescue in shade Natural – has SPF 20 and gives a glowy, sheer coverage.

bare minerals brow master pencil because a girl wasn’t born with it.

Milk Makeup Kush Mascara because they really killed the marketing story and I also was born with three stick straight eyelashes.

bare minerals Gen Nude Powder Blush in Beige for Days because you can’t go wrong with a beige blush paired with anything tbh.

NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Jubilation which I use as highlighter for dat glow.

bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Maple for some color.

VOILA. Not perfect but I mean GOOD ENOUGH for a Thursday morning.
