FOTD: Done but Undone


Recently I've been sporting this look of bare and matte eyeshadows. I feel it gives a really fresh, clean and pretty look that is simple enough to be both 'done' and 'undone' at the same time.

I start off with my Bourjois Healthymix Serum in 55 with my No7 Foundation brush. This really seals in the product but gives you a bit more coverage than your fingers would. Then I powder with my ELF Complexion Perfection Powder to have a matte but glowy finish.

For my eyes I've used MAC Brule eyeshadow, and a matte brown from my 28 Neutral Palette that is slightly darker than my skintone to contour. Paired with bold black feline eyeliner made with my Clinique Gel Eyeliner, this is the most important part of the look for me! I also keep the brows a bit lighter and softer with my Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in Medium. In this picture I was testing out a new mascara, but I usually go for a bit of an OTT look with my Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers paired with the L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara.

As for cheeks, I rotate between different blushes that I think gives me a fresh glow. In the picture I'm wearing Hard Candy's Fox in a Box in Spicey & Sweet, but I often choose NARS Torrid too.

For my lips I choose a nude - but not too nude. Yep, it's my trusty Rimmel Moisture Renew in Nude Delight ;)


Anyone else loving the done but undone look? Maybe it's the sporadic appearance of sun lately!? :P

    1. Thanks Gill! I would indeed, I really enjoy using it. I only bought it because I'd heard it stays moist for longest out of Bobbi Brown's and MAC's :)

    1. It really is, it's handy too because it's actually 4 different colours - this is just the 4 mixed together :)

  8. Boy I thought I was the only one who's been going for the undone look lately :)!
    I think its most definitely due to the warmer weather, who wants to be walking around with a smokey eye when its sunny and gorgeous, you just want to get outside as fast as possible, not spending time on your makeup!
    Its amazing how much crap we actually use to get that "I have nothing on" look when you could just literally wear nothing, oh the irony!
    You have stunning skin, I'm EXTREMELY envious! Oh, and I think I might need that Rimmel lipstick now, I've been struggling to find a good nude!

  9. I love this look and you pull it off so well. I usually end up over-doing my undone look!

  10. I was ignoring my shadows a lot so I decided to do this every day. The effect is something that looks a little more polished than no shadow but no one can put their finger on it.
