My everyday makeup look!



P I N K ,   G R E Y ,   +   N U D E

I had a question pop up via my Instagram recently about how I do my makeup, and it got me thinking about the fact that I’ve never actually shared a tutorial for my everyday, so-routine-I-could-do-it-half-asleep, makeup look!

That’s probably, I guess, down to the fact that it’s taken me a little while (easily a good couple of years!) to work out exactly how I like my makeup to look on a day to day basis. I still do tend to fiddle around with it fairly regularly (some days I’ll swap in liquid liner instead of a shadow line, other days I I fancy a bold lip), but this is the base look I come back to time and again.

It’s a pretty muted, natural look, with softly defined eyes (using a charcoal grey shadow for liner, in place of pencil or liquid), a subtle contoured cheek, and peachy pink blush and lips.

Here’s the how-to! >>


01. Apply your favourite base- right now I’m using Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, and a beauty blender-type sponge for a flawlessly light and natural finish. Add concealer beneath the eyes and to any blemishes.


02. Sweep a light, creamy toned shadow over the whole of your eyelid, and up onto the brow bone.

03. Work a light grey shadow into the outer corner and crease of your eye socket, blending it in with the base colour.

04. Using a fine brush, carefully line the top of your eye using a charcoal grey shadow, and then use the flat of the brush to smudge a little along your lower lash line too.


05. Blend a rosy pink blusher into the apples of your cheeks- I love Benefit Bella Bamba for its gold highlighting qualities, but since it’s been discontinued, plan on buying Nars Orgasm soon as an alternative.

06. Using a large fluffy brush, sweep bronzer down from your temples through to the contour of your cheeks. Blend well, so as not to create a strongly contoured look- I went a little darker than normal here for the sake of the photos, but usually like the bronzer to be super pared back and subtle!


07. Use a peachy pink liner or matte lip crayon to line the lips, and then go over with your favourite nude-toned lipstick. This Max Factor has been my favourite since last summer- and it’s on its last legs, now!



And that’s it, the finished look! If you recreate it (and I’d love to see photos, if you give it a go!) I hope you love it as much as I do.

    It looks very similar to what I usually do (mine is just way more messy :) )

  • Sophie | The Littlest Things

    Pure perfection! I’m really trying to figure mine out – the foundations ive been using recently are either making my skin really oily or really dry. I’m definitely going to be trying that Chanel foundation! loveeeeeeee the colouring of your blush and bronzer too! stunning!

  • Amy Eleanor | Ameldi

    Oh no, I had no idea bella bamba had been discontinued! I’ll have to find an alternative for when mine finally runs out, sob. I love this look and that lip colour so will definitely have to give it a go.

    Beautiful Rosie.
    Eyeshadow scares the living daylights out of me but this looks naturally gorgeous and pretty easy to do, you might have inspired me to crank my daytime look up from a bit of concealer and dog drool!!

    Love this look, Rosie! What I love even more is I already have the same eye shadow brushes + Naked palette to replicate the look. Ha! Going to try this today :) You look beautiful!

  • Shelby @ The Fernweh Wolf

    I loveee the naked palette it’s seriously the best eyeshadows! And it’s so small it can be taken anywhere. Love the way you used it very pretty :]

    I had no idea that Bella Bamba was discontinued! I used it a few years back, but unfortunately never got around to purchasing it again… I love how natural, yet put together your look is! :)

    This is such a lovely natural look! I’m (nervously) thinking about doing my own make-up for my wedding this year, which might be over-optimistic since I’ve done the same (badly applied) look since I was about 15! I’ve used Bare Minerals powder since I started using make-up, but it’s too light to look great in photos and I’ve never used any other foundation/powder, so this was really helpful for face stuff (the technical term, obviously).

    Beautiful. I love a natural makeup look and this looks easy to do. I’m going to give the eyeshadow a go – I can’t see very well without my glasses so always struggling with lining my eyes.


  • Claire @ Country Mouse Claire

    I’ve heard such great things about that Chanel foundation – I love fresh, peachy looks.

  • Kayleigh

    This is so soft and pretty. I love it. It suits you beautifully. I may try this myself. I like how subtle yet uplifting it is. Xxx I don’t wear make up very much – my outdoor life sweeps it away easily! but I really feel this is lovely!! X

    Best wishes …
