As you know from my previous post, I am home for the holidays and preparing to take some much-needed time off. I’m thinking now is the perfect time to share this quick + easy everyday makeup tutorial since it’s what I’ll be doing for most of the holidays (except when I don’t wear anything at all… on my face). As usual, the products are linked below and please let me know if you have any questions!

PS The winner of last week’s Smashbox products has been announced… check it out over here!

    What color do you have the brow gel and your powder in? There are so many options online and I’m not sure what to go with!

      Hi Chelsey!

      I use the Taupe brow pencil and the gel in clear. Hope that helps!

    What shade of HD concealer do you use under your eyes? Is it best to match skin tone or go shade lighter for under eye?

      I use Y31… I would go ever so slightly lighter just to brighten, but very minimally!
