I’m here with a quick matte makeup look today! True to the title, I tried this look yesterday with the newly launched Infallible Reno range from L’oreal Paris.
If you’d not checked my reviews on them yet, I must say this is my current favorite foundation and I totally love using it since it looks very natural on my skin instead of being ashy or whitey unlike few other foundations in the market. It looks more like a second skin, covering most of the imperfections!
This is one of the fail-safe makeup looks you could do in a matter of 5 minutes! The blue eyeliner + fuchsia lipstick combination adds color the face! The natural coverage provided by the foundation provides a fresh look! It’s overall a perky look to try if you are bored of plain eyeliners and regular tinted moisturizers.
Face : I’ve combined and used my favorite products from L’Oreal Paris to create this look. Since it was a humid day, I skipped the moisturizer and directly applied the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Reno Liquid Foundation to my face. I dotted it all over my face and blended it really well. It gives a smooth matte finish. I then applied a thin coat of L’Oreal Paris Infallible Reno Powder Foundation to set the foundation. It provided a true matte finish without a hint of shine. I’ve not used a concealer here since the foundation does a great job in concealing my problematic areas.
Eyes : For my eyes, I used a lovely neutral shade from the L’Oreal Color Riche Quad. I then applied a thick line of L’Oreal Paris Gel Intenza Super Liner Eye Liner – Sapphire Blue on my upper lash line, which is a part of their Cannes 2015 makeup collection. It goes smooth on my eyelids with its creamy texture; and sets well! I used the same eyeliner in Diamond Black shade on my lower lash line. Though these have minute shimmer, they settle more on the matte-ier side.
Lips : I’ve used a bright Fuchsia Pink lipstick from their Cannes Collection again; the shade name is Glamor Fuchsia. It is a true blue based red that suits every skin type!
Cheeks : On my cheeks, I’ve used the L’Oreal Paris Coral Riche Moist Mat Lipstick (Swarovski Collection) in the shade Cherry Crush. I am so in love with this shade however it somehow looks too ‘neon’ on my dusky-dark skin if used as a lipstick; hence I started using it as my blush. It adds a nice flush of color to my cheeks.
I completed the look with a small yellow bindi on my forehead; I avoided two main products here – concealer and mascara but still my skin manages to look flawless (refer my no-makeup photos above); my chicken pox marks are well concealed by the foundation itself. I skipped the mascara to keep the look quick and light.
I hope you liked my makeup look! After creating this look, I’m so tempted to do another look with their set of products; but this time ‘dewy’. I’m yet to decide on that! Do let me know if you’ve any suggestions regarding my FOTDs.
Happy Monsoon. Much love!
