By  |  0 Comments

For us girls who are always on the move, a day typical may consist of class,work and meetings in between. Even though we might feel anxiety from the long day that awaits us, that doesn’t mean we don’t want to look good while conquering our schedule, right?

As I recited in my pageant introduction:

“If you look good, you feel good, then you can conquer the world.”

The best way to take on such a busy day is to embody confidence and poise all while having a smile on your face, of course. I’ve complied my favorite natural go-to looks for my continuously busy days! Check them out below.


The Earth-tone Nudes:

This look is to accentuate your natural beauty. Keep everything neutral by sweeping on shades of brown on your lids, filling in your eyebrows lightly, a little eye liner paired with a nude lippie. To add onto the look, add a golden shimmery highlight and loads of mascara.

The Pop of Pink:

This pinky nude look is for days when you want to feel more girly. To achieve this look, keep eyes neutral by putting a gold or silver eye shadow on the lid and inner tear ducts. By placing such a highlighting color on your lids and inner tear ducts, you will look more awake and ready for the day. Put a warm brown color in the crease and brush on pink blush on the apples of your cheeks to tie the look together. Also, you can’t forget the best part —  putting a sheer pink lipgloss on to kick your glam into high-speed.

Here are some of the palettes you can purchase to recreate each look. The best ones for nude looks in my opinion include: Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette (high end- retails at $49) and Coastal Scents revealed 1&2 (affordable- retails at $19.95 each).
