Clean No Makeup-Makeup Look with Pink Velvet Dress

December 29, 2016 - 117 Comments

Winter is here and the most important thing about my winter beauty routine is that my skin is hydrated and taken care of before piling on makeup.

I’ve been very minimal with my makeup as well with my outfits lately even on special occasions. This day, I started with my usual skincare routine (SK II essence first, Skin Inc Serum in Ceramide, Laura Mercier Rose Oil, then Avene Replenishing Cream) then I put on Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 in Illuminating. The shade I use is Warm Radiance which gives you this warm illuminating glow so no, the name is not misleading.

Ok, so with clean looking skin, I have this one trick and it’s the Laura Mercier Candleglow Concealer and Highlighter. I put that under my eyes and gently dab it with my ring finger and whatever is left on my fingers, I just put above my eyebrows and tip of the nose. Super easy and a little goes a long way. I think aside from the tinted moisturizer, this is my favorite makeup product from Laura Mercier because it works so well. When I was in India, I had other girls try this product and they all loved it. I use shade #2.

For me, aisde from having clean skin, having good brows is everything. I really wish I had known this early on in my life but I guess, better late than never. I swear by my Laura Mercier’s Eyebrow Pencil which has a pencil on one side and a spool on the other. I gently fill in the end of my brows with that, then go in with the brow duo and fill in the rest. I also really love Glosser Boy Brow to make my brows stick up.

Lastly, I curl my lashes and put on mascara then apply my favorite lipshade, pink pout.


When it comes to winter dressing, my favorite trend is velvet so here I’m wearing my pink velvet wrap dress and Jimmy Choo velvet strap sandals. Right now there are so many great dresses available especially for New Years Eve like this Privacy Please velvet wrap dress and this beautiful Misa Carolina Dress in mustardy gold shade or in red.

Also, other very affordable velvet heel options here for less than $30 and also in a very pretty shade of pink.
