Today, I’m sharing a soft and feminine makeup look that typically is my daily go-to. I don’t love wearing a heavy foundation, especially for an everyday look, so I always look for a lightweight formula. Right now, I’m all about using a tinted moisturizer (my favorite is by Laura Mercier with SPF). It’s lightweight, airy and doesn’t look or feel cakey, which makes for the perfect daily foundation.

Below is a list of all the products I used to get this look. Let me know if you have any questions about any of the products used, or any application questions.

Products:

Foundation – Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, SPF 20

Bronzer – Laguna by NARS

Highlighter – Vanilla by NARS

Blush – Gaiety by NARS

Eyes – Naked Basics by Urban Decay

Mascara – Bobby Brown ‘Smokey Eye’ Mascara

Eye Liner – Via Veneto by NARS

Lip Pencil – Bodley Bare by MAC

Lipstick – Madere by NARS

Gloss – Turkish Delight by NARS

Brushes:

Foudation Brush – Chanel Blender Foundation Brush #7

Highlighter Brush – Bobbi Brown

Eyeshadow Brush – Bobbi Brown

*Tip: I have a weird issue with my hands touching my face. I HATE it! When I apply my foundation, I absolutely can not use my hands to apply it so I use this brush. It blends foundation in perfectly and keeps the oils from your hands off your face. I swear it helps me avoid breakouts!

Be sure to check back tomorrow for a more bold and glamorous makeup look!

xo, Rach

  1. Gorgeous selection. I also use a foundation brush but I use mind for flawless finish. That blush is just the most beautiful colour.

  2. I have been thinking about buying the Laura Mercier moisturizer instead of foundation but wasn’t sure if it would be a good substitute! Thank you for this post I’m going out to buy mine ASAP!

  3. Thanks for sharing! When you use the brush for foundation, do you put the foundation directly on the brush to blend? I’m new to using a brush for foundation!

  4. Great post, Rach! We use a lot of the same products! I’m anxious to give the Bobbi Brown mascara and the Nars eye liner a try. You look gorgeous!

  5. So excited to see you in Philly at the Nordstrom Rack event! I have lots of rotten tomatoes from my garden to share with you. Be on the look out!!! :)

  6. I love this entire look. It’s very similar to my go-to feminine look, except I use slightly darker products to work with my deeper skin tone.
