Super Natural Makeup Look

Ferro and Coastal Scents Makeup

This look is based off my daily makeup look, which I keep pretty low key. It’s your basic natural makeup application. I like to play up my eyes a bit, keep my skin breathing with a slight glow.

  • Started off with NARS Makeup Primer (as a bonus it has SPF 20) across my face and neck.
  • I used Ferro’s mineral makeup Radiance Foundation (my color: Light-Medium Beige) on any places I need coverage- around my nose, eyelids, under eyes, chin.
  • Using Ferro’s Rose Crystal Mineral Veil for shimmer, I applied it *lightly* to my cheekbones and across my entire eyelid up to the brow bone (it makes an excellent highlighter).
  • For color flush on my cheeks, I used Ferro’s Bronzer in Glow Baby. Whatever was left on the brush was tapped onto my chin, nose, and across forehead.
  • Since everything else is very neutral, I used Coastal Scents eyeshadow in Paisley (a light purple) on my eyelid. This shadow is a light wash of color, almost what you would imagine from a watercolor paint.
  • Finish with one coat of Lancome’s Definicils mascara in Black.

Here’s the look on my eyes. See, the purple is very neutral and just brings out the eyes a little. Perfect for daytime! (And yes, I look a little crooked in this photo, oops!)

This is a super pretty purple shadow. Soft and feminine, it really compliments your brown eyes.

Great job Jami!

Nice… I also like your eyebrows. Do you get them done? Waxed or threaded?

Oh, nice… very natural and pretty. I’m always so afraid of using shadow… I always feel too made-up. Plus, I’m a real spaz at putting on eyeshadow… my eyes are never even! :)

Jen, Thank you!!

Natalie, I just tweeze my eyebrows since I’m too lazy to head to the salon or spa to have them done, and I guess I’m a cheap-o too. Can’t justify the money. :)

Nenette, Thanks! This shadow is super easy to get even. I had the “uneven” eye trouble up until about a year ago when I started playing with different brands and brushes. I guess I’m getting better. But you’d never believe the amount of times I’d apply eyeshadow and then wipe it all off with tissues, to restart again. LOL!

When I saw the purple, I must admit, I cringed a bit. But it is beautiful! It looks so perfect with your eye color to boot. I might actually have to try some purple this weekend! I am inspired! :)

Nicole, Just find a purple that goes on pretty light. That way you can still have a bit of color without going overboard. Then if you get to wanting a bit more “punch”- you can apply the same purple with a slightly damp shadow brush.
