Business Meeting Makeup Look

I had an early business morning today, and decided to share with you what I wore on my face! Sorry for the quality, it was just kind of a spur of the moment shot-with-my-phone kind of thing.

My skin’s been doing some weird dry stuff lately (normally I have normal-to-oily skin), probably due to the ridiculous weather patterns in so-cal these days. Aand, as long as I’m making excuses for my appearance, gotta love how shadows make me look like I have a mustache! I assure you, I do not. ;)
On my face I just slapped on some MAC Studio Fix powder and sprayed the hell out of it with mark. Mist Opportunity on any dry spots to avoid it looking patchy. I did not bother with concealer because I was in a hurry and I could not find the concealer I wanted (which is why you can see the spot on my chin, oof!) but the one I would have used is Neutrogena 3-in-1 under eye concealer. I use that for blemishes that are healing (dry) because this concealer is very moisturizing but also gives good coverage. It never exacerbates (that’s a fancy word) dryness on my face.
For my cheeks I dotted on a little bit of MAC Pink Swoon, which is a sheer matte pale pink. It’s kind of a go-to blush color for me as it gives me a little bit of color (enough so that my cheek freckles don’t look weird) but isn’t like a neon sign across my face that I’m wearing blush. However, I’m kind of a fan of heavily applied blush in general haha. I played it safe for the meeting today. 
When I’m in a hurry and wanting to make a good impression I feel it’s best to keep it simple on the eyes, because invariably when I’m rushing and I try to paint the Mona Lisa on my eyes, I f it up and it looks all wonky. I lined my top lashline with MAC Sense of Style kohl, which is a gorgeous navy blue. Not wanting it to look so stark, I also took a fluffy brush and blended some MAC Kid eyeshadow in the crease for some definition. I finished off the eyes with a generous helping of Makeup Forever Smoky Lash mascara, which I’m really liking– stay tuned for a review coming soon!
And finally– lips. Try as I might to wear tons of different lip colors, my fall-back is always a good pinky nude. Makeup artists always put me in this color lip as well, so it must really work for me. It’s a safe color, and goes with pretty much everything. Plus, my lips are naturally a similar pinky tone, so it looks very natural with my coloring. The pinky nude lip today is MAC Patisserie.
