Fresh and easy everyday makeup

Till vardags tycker jag det är snyggt att ha lite lagom makeup på ögonen och nu till vintern vill man gärna se lite pigg ut. Här är ett förslag till makeup. /
As an everyday makeup I think it looks good when you don't have too much on the eyes and now when it's winter you want to look a bit fresh. Here's a suggestion of how to do that.

Före / Before

Foundation, concealer och primer på ögonlocken. Om du inte har oljiga ögonlock behöver du inte använda primer. /
Foundation, concealer and primer on the eyelids. If you don't have oily eyelids you don't have to use primer.

Fyll i ögonbrynen med en färg som matchar din naturliga. /
Fill in the brows with a color that matches your own.

En paint pot ger en bra grund för ögonskuggan att fästa på. Lägg över hela ögonlocket och upp till ögonbrynet. /
A paint pot will give the eyeshadow a good base to stick to. Put it all over the lid and up to the brow.

Lägg en ljus (cremefärgad eller vit) skugga över hela ögonlocket. /
Put a light (cream colored or white) shadow all over the lid.

Lägg en mörkbrun skugga i globlinjen och dra linjen svagt uppåt och ut  i ytterkant. /
Put a dark brown shadow in the socket and flick it sligthly upwards and out in end. 

Blanda in ögonskuggan uppåt. /
Blend the shadow upwards.

Böj ögonfransarna och lägg på mascara. Snygga och böjda ögonfransar ger ögonen ett mycket mer vaket intryck. /
Curl the lashes and put on mascara. Nice and curled lashes gives the eyes a much more awake appearance.

Pudra och lägg på bronzer. /
Powder and put on bronzer.

Läppglans och sedan är det klart! /
Lip gloss and then you're done!

  1. Hi Catharina!

    Thanks so much for the tutorial. I'm really bad at doing makeup. I'm not a risk taker at all. Also, I'm still trying to figure out how to do great eye makeup because I have Asian eyes and don't really have an eyelid crease.
    Thanks also for the comment! I really appreciate it. Come and visit me again soon and I will do the same and follow you.

  2. i always strive for a fresh, clean look like this...using the least possible products. partly due to time constraints in the morning as well as not wanting makeup to feel caked on. thanks for sharing!


I love hearing what you think so please make a comment! I always read them, often reply, and always answer questions!
