Natural Everyday Makeup Tutorial! (super easy)

Hey daydreamers! First off, thank you so much to Natalie for giving me the idea for this post in the survey I did last month! (Wow, that feels like forever ago, remember when there wasn’t a global pandemic? XD) I really and truly appreciate it when you guys let me know what you want to see from me – I’m always looking for post ideas and inspiration, and if you have any ideas for me let me know in the comments and I’d be super happy to make a post about it! Thank you to everyone who took the survey, and I’m going to try to do the posts you guys asked for within the next few weeks, so stay tuned! 😉

As you can see from the title, today I’m going to do a super easy, super natural, and super fun makeup tutorial for everyday! Normally, I only wear some eyebrow makeup, sometimes a little mascara, and maybe some clear lip gloss if I feel like it, and during quarantine I haven’t been wearing any, haha. I decided to make a tutorial for when you’re feeling like putting on some extra makeup, but you don’t want to spend a ton of time and energy on it and you don’t want people to tell you’re wearing any!

It’s not super necessary to wear makeup in the current situation since we’re all stuck at home, but I think it’s an awesome opportunity to wear makeup for yourself and to feel good and not to impress other people, and you can brush up on some skills! SEE WHAT I DID THERE It’s also a good time to take care of your skin and let your face have a break, so just find what works for you ❤ ❤

Okay, without futher into-ing, (why don’t I ever say introducing or introduction? I just noticed that) let’s get into the tutorial! And also, disclaimer of the day, I’m in no way a professional makeup artist or makeup guru or anything, I have no idea what I’m doing and taught myself how to do everything, so don’t judge. XD Okay, let’s get started for real!

Okay, first step is to pull your hair back so it doesn’t get in the way. I’m using the light pink scrunchie from my Franchesca’s scrunchie review. A normal ponytail is fine, but if you want to get fancy, do a braid! (It literally doesn’t matter)

Next, I’m going to spray my face with this bliss Rose Gold Rescue rose water spray to sort of cleanse it and it’s also super refreshing!

All the stuff I’m using is from this Ulta makeup case unless I say otherwise, in case you were wondering!

Next, you’re going to do your eyebrows. If you don’t need to do them, I’m jealous, haha! If you have super light brows like me, go ahead and put the product on a brow brush and sort of draw on top of your brows to make them darker. If yours are normal, just fill in the sparse spots with a pencil or brush.

Time for bronzer! I’m not super great at bronzer, but use a larger brush to apply it gently to your cheekbones and add a little extra right at the sideburn area (that’s the only way I can explain it haha)

Also, add some blush. You want to go super light and natural to give yourself a rosy glow that’s not too obvious.

Next, my favorite part: eyeshadow! I’m using a palate from Ulta (I think? Not sure). Start with your nuetral color (I’m using the Candelight shade) and apply it all over your eyelid, crease, and brow bone. This is kind of a “base” for the rest of the eye makeup.

Next, apply at slightly darker shade over your eyelid only. I’m using the Amour shade for this one.

GLITTER!!! *ahem* I love adding a layer of glittery eyshadow, because it makes me feel so confident and put-together! I’m using the Glitz shade. Apply as much glitter as you want wherever you feel like it on your eyelid. 😉

You’re almost done! Now add a little bit of mascara. I’m using Maybelline GreatLash mascara, and I love it! It’s so much better than the one I was using before.

Finally, add some clear lip gloss, and you’re done!

And you’re done!

How I Do My Makeup for Performances // Stage Makeup Tutorial!

Hey daydreamers! You guys really seemed to like my morning routine post, so I decided to do something sort of similar to that today.

In this post, I’m basically going to be showing you how I do my makeup for shows and ballet performances, and this is pretty much how I did my makeup for Nutcracker a few weeks ago! (I miss Nutcracker so much!!! *cries*)

First off, I am in no way a professional makeup artist or anything, I have no idea what I’m doing and this is basically what I’ve figured out by experimenting and trying out products and stuff. And also, this isn’t sponsored or anything (haha as if, I wish this was sponsored lol)!

Without futher ado…my attempt at a makeup tutorial! 😂

This is just my face pre-makeup. 😂 Onstage, it’s really important to wear heavy makeup because the huge stage lights completely wash your face out, and you have to make sure the back row of the audience can see your facial expressions. You mainly just have to focus on brows, eyes, lips, and cheekbones.

Lol, I should know…once I was in a play and I didn’t wear ANY makeup at all, and it looks like I don’t even have a face in this picture! *Cringes*

The first thing I do is just pull my hair back into a simple ponytail, just to keep my hair out of my face.

First, I’m using a beauty blender and a Neutrogena product (I think it’s supposed to be cover up, but I sort of use it like foundation.)

Next, I apply the cover up on my chin, forehead, cheeks, and under my eyes. Then I blend everything in with the beauty blender by sort of bouncing the blender on my face and smoothing everything out with my fingers.

Next, I put some highlighter around the corners of my eyes to brighten them up a little.

Sorry this is out of focus! I’m using the light to medium matte bronzer, matte rose blush, and gold highlighter from this palate from the Nuetrogena makeup case I got for Christmas.

My face in this picture, lol! First, I take the matte bronzer and lightly dust it over my cheekbones, and blend with a beauty blender.

Next, I apply some blush to my cheekbones – a little more than I would usually do, because it needs to show up onstage. Once again, blend!

Lastly, I dust a touch of shimmery gold highlighter slightly above my cheekbones. And I – you guessed it! – blend it all in.

Onto brows! I’m using the light brown brow cream from the same case thing.

Using a brow brush, I brush on a thick line at the top of my brows, which looks really funny and strange at first, lol!

After that, I blend it together by rubbing my fingers over my brows, and then I fill in any sparse spots with the brow brush.

Next, I apply some glowy nude eyeshadow base with an eyeshadow brush. I really like using this because it smooths everything out and gives your eyes a bit of a natural glow!

Moving onto my favorite part – eyeshadow! I’m using the Candelight, Amour, Midnight, and Sparks colors from this palate, and a crease brush from a brush kit I got.

First, I dust the Candelight shade all over my lids. Then I go over that with the Amour color. After that, I brush the darker Midnight color from the bottom of my eyelids to my crease, and then go over everything with the light shimmery Sparks color.

Ta-da! Eyeshadow done, now onto lashes and eyeliner.

Doing my own eyeliner is really hard for me, so I usually have my mom do it…but I tried, and kinda failed, haha! For shows I always, always, always do winged eyeliner! I attempted a wing here and it’s kinda uneven…oh well?

Second-to-last, I apply mascara! I use this really big, thick one for onstage. I don’t know why, but mascara is really fun to put on for some reason. 😂

Normally, when I’m in a group dance, we all have one lipstick color that we all share so we look the same, so I usually put it on there. It kinda depends on the role: sometimes it’s pink, and sometimes it’s red.

Finally, fill in your lip liner with a bright red or dark pink shade, and you’re done!

I’m pretty happy about how this turned out! The eyeliner is only a little bit messy, and the eyeshadow turned out pretty well! I probably would’ve done everything a bit more exaggerated for a real show, but I didn’t want to put a TON on because it’s hard to take it off, especially thick eyeliner. 😂

And that’s it for this post! I hope you guys found this interesting, and maybe you can use it to try out some stage makeup of your own. Let me know what you think in the comments!

Have you ever done stage makeup? Do you like makeup everyday, or only for shows and special occasions? Pink or red lipstick? Are you bad at eyeliner like me?
