Look of the Day: Shimmering Neutrals

I wasn't originally planning on sharing this makeup look but I realized that this is one of my go-to looks for any occasion and is very versatile for all skin tones! I love the neutral mauve undertones and soft winged liner.

Mostly every product I used contained some sort of shimmer, especially the eyes. I managed to snag up the Victoria's Secret Quad in "Eye Contact" during the Semi-Annual sale. I heard that they were discontinuing all of their makeup which disappointed me because I absolutely LOVE this quad! It's extremely pigmented and would be flattering on all skin tones. Unfortunately I think you will only be able to find it in stores now but The Pedro Lourenco Nude Quad by MAC is very similar! I also added a bit of MAC's Pigment in "Tan" to brighten up the inner half of my lids.
Since I'm a huge lip junkie, I'd have to say my favorite part of this look is the lip color. I'm completely obsessed with the Too Faced La Creme Lipsticks and NYX Butter Glosses. The two are a match made in heaven. I just got the shade "Honey Bear" in the La Creme Lipstick and it's perfection. The perfect dusty mauve! The gloss I'm wearing is NYX Butter Gloss in "Madeline", AKA my favorite nude gloss of ALL time!
I kept the cheeks fresh and neutral with MAC's "Warm Soul" Minerlized Blush and The Balm's "Betty Lou Manizer" Bronzer. This is my all time FAVORITE bronzer, especially if you like a bit of a shimmery finish in your bronzers like me.

What do you guys think about this look? Where would you wear it to? :)


  1. I love this look! I would wear it on a casual date night or on a day out some girlfriends!

  2. How different would this look if you used matte eye shadows?

  3. Its a really pretty look :)
