Casual Makeup + OOTD

Sometimes even on my days off I wear makeup if I have things planned or I want to look nice. Last Thursday I went into town for my first visit to Kmart and did a little bit of shopping. I opted for a casual, comfortable outfit and simple, pretty makeup. Hope you enjoy this post!


Can’t go wrong with stripes and monochrome!

  • Top: Dannii For Target
  • Jeans: Glassons


Products listed in order of application:

  1. Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Primer – This primer helps my foundation apply more smoothly and keep everything in place longer.
  2. Rimmel Professional Brow Pencil in 002 Hazel – You know how much I love this by now! Look how small the pencil is getting.
  3. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in 010 Light Porcelain – Despite this no longer being my favourite foundation it is still good for everyday wear and one of the best colour matches for my skin. It looks nice with the primer and I notice the difference if I don’t use the primer.
  4. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – 1 Fair – This concealer is my all time favourite. It blends like a dream and the colour match is perfect.
  5. The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 01 Light Matte – I love pairing this bronzer with the Rimmel foundation as it warms up my skin ever so slightly and still looks natural. The bronzer is extremely difficult to overdo. It also makes a good base for eyeshadow which I used it for on this day.
  6. Max Factor Excess Shimmer in Pink Opal – I applied a small amount of this on the inner corners of my eyes to make them stand out more.
  7. MAC Pigment in Tan – I applied this over the rest of my eyelids with my finger after going in with the Max Factor shadow. It gives the most beautiful sparkle. I love how you can go in light or heavy handed with this depending on the look you’re going for.
  8. L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara (Blackest Black) – This mascara makes my lashes look long and full and black – it is amazing! I apply two coats to my top lashes and one coat to my bottom lashes.
  9. Dainty Doll Powder Blush in You Are My Sunshine – This gorgeous peachy-coral is my favourite blush. It gives the prettiest flush to the cheeks and I only need a small amount as it is pigmented. I love to apply this with my Real Techniques Setting Brush. It is small and fluffy and allows me to be precise with my application.
  10. Dainty Doll Lipstick in Material World – This is quite a warm shade of pink but it’s extremely beautiful. I think of this lipstick as ‘my job interview lipstick’ because it is a neutral, sophisticated shade. The formula is nourishing and has a kind of demi-matte finish. It’s very comfortable to wear and stays put and doesn’t slide around.

    Great post. I really enjoyed it💕 Love your top. Do you have Target stores in NZ or do you order online? The L’Oreal mascara seems to work really well for you. Your lashes look really long☺ X

      Thanks for reading lovely! It is one of my favourite tops. I used to be able to order the petites clothing online but I can’t buy from them anymore, it’s only Australian customers now. They definitely do look longer with this mascara, I love it! ☺️

    Casual and beautiful! ❤ I wish I could get my hands on the collection concealer lol. I could buy from Ebay but I never know what sellers to trust, and I don’t want to pay more than an insane amount lol. xx

      The outfit would look great on you too! The sparkle and pigmentation of the pigment is gorgeous! Dainty Doll isn’t made anymore but I picked all my bits up new on eBay/Amazon 🙂

    Look at the dips in your blush and bronzer! How many blushers do you own in your makeup collection?
    The MAC pigment in Tan looks wonderful on you!
    For a casual look I usually use a BB cream and keep my eye makeup light and shimmery. I don’t typically wear any lip colour or blush.

      I downsized from four blushes to two 😛 I don’t wear blush everyday though. I didn’t notice the dips, I’ll have to look at the images again! I love the Tan pigment 😍
