Wedding Guest Makeup Look - Simple Eyes and Brown Lip

Hey guys! 

New makeup look, and this time it's on me. And a proud moment at the end of the post 😉


After shooting Walda's makeup look, Mohsen had some time to spare and we decided we should just go ahead and shoot my makeup look as well.  

Since I was running late to the same wedding, I opted for my go-to simple makeup look. You know that quick go-to-almost-everyday makeup look that we all have that we can pull off with eyes closed? Yes, that one. 

Mine is a flawless skin paired with a simple eye look that can go with any lip color. I was going to wear a green dress, so I decided to go with a brown matte lip. 

To be able to pull off the simple eye and nude lip look, the skin has to be the centre of the makeup routine and has to be flawless. For that, you gotta have a clean canvas: before you start applying makeup wash and moisturize your face with products that best work for your skin. Then priming is the next
