Simple Rustic Glam Makeup

I've been trying to branch outside my comfort zone and use more colors when it comes to eyeshadow. Who else loves their brown/neutral palettes?? (raises hand) The neutral colors make it so easy to create something quick and easy so you can be on your way.

What if you could create the same type of makeup look but with color?! Would you try it? I would hope so!

That's why I decided to change it up with these rustic orange colors. I created a simple glam makeup look that will take only a few minutes. The key to this type of eyeshadow is blending.

(Your new favorite makeup term: blend, blend, blend! ) ;-)

Here I am in the flesh. lol. I want to give you an idea on how I look before I start my makeup. I prep the skin by taking a round cotton pad and using my 'Witch Hazel Toner' by Maple Holistics. I love this toner because it contains safe ingredients which have helped clear up my skin.

Antioxidant-rich witch hazel along with soothing aloe vera and relaxing lavender oil work in synergy to tone, tighten, remove excess oil and reduce redness and blackheads. It prevents acne, balances skin pH, minimizes pores, and protects skin to keep it looking youthful. This product is great for all skin types.


Next, you'll want to primer your face before foundation. I love using this product 'Unseen Sunscreen' by Supergoop to not only protect my skin from harmful UV rays, but also to help my foundation glide on smoothly.

This primer contains SPF 40 and is clear in color with a silky like texture. It feels nice and smooth on the skin plus helps your foundation grip on while staying in place all day.


This 'Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation' by Fenty beauty has been my new favorite lately. It's a medium coverage foundation that is buildable.

The formula it's oil free and comes in 50 shades. *A quick tip is to shake it before applying so the ingredients . Also, I love using a beauty blender to apply my foundation.


After I apply foundation and concealer, I always finish with a setting powder. This one by hourglass is AMAZING! 'The Veil Translucent Mineral Setting powder' retails at $46, but is worth every penny.


For the eyeshadow creation I chose to use my Jaclyn Hill palette by Morphe Cosmetics.

The colors I used were:

Silk creme - transition shade

Roxanne - all over the lid and mostly in the crease + outer corner

Queen - on the inner top of the eyelid

I used a fluffy blending eyeshadow brush to blend out the first two colors and then I used a flat eyeshadow brush to pack on the color queen.


No makeup look is complete without BROWS. It's amazing how much they pull the entire makeup look together. One of these days I need to branch out and try something new, but I just love this brow dip pomade by Anastasia Beverly Hills.


I finished up the look with eyeliner, mascara, and then these false lashes by Eylure. This was my first time trying them and I really liked them! They give such a nice flirty look without being too over the top in my opinion.


Here is a picture of the final look. I hope this makeup look inspired you to branch out with different colors! I know I'll be looking to create more makeup looks like this one.


Here is the short video clip of me applying some of these makeup products today:
