I'll Have the "Usual" || #FOTD

• Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner in Black • Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil in Fairytale • Benefit gimmeBrow • Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Natural Beauty • MAC Marilyn Monroe Love Goddess Lipstick 

Everyone has their "go to" look. The look they'll always slap on their face because it's the easiest or makes them feel the most beautifullest (not grammatically correct but if you ever hear me talk in real life, this is how I emphasize, haha) For some it's a little shadow all over the lid, mascara, and lip gloss. For others it's full out foundation, liner, brows, you know, the whole shebang. My go to look has always been liquid eye liner, bold lips, and natural looking red cheeks. Ever since high school this has been the look I go to because it makes me feel pretty, put together, and, most importantly, comfortable. It makes me less self conscious about the actual redness in my cheeks and defines my eyes which are my favorite feature. I still don't know why I'm so comfortable and prefer to wear bright reds and pinks and fuchsias, but I do. Maybe because it makes me want to smile more, haha.

The thing with go to looks is that it's all about the comfort. The reason you always manage to go back to it is because it's what makes you feel most you and it's the look you're not checking up on in the mirror every five seconds. So now I want to know ...

What's your go to look?

  1. Gorgeous, you rock the bright lip so well! At the moment I'm loving simple eyes, nude lips and lots of blush! <3

  2. This is very similar to my go-to look! I'm always wearing bright lipstick because I feel pretttty badass when I'm wearing it. Sometimes I'll pair it with winged liner- depends on how fancy I'm feeling :P

    1. YES! Haha *gangsta awesome music* I always try to wing out my liner but it's more so on how adventurous I'm feeling because I can never get it right!

      That sounds lovely! I need to reach for eyeshadow-y go-to looks. I've got so many but I never use them! Will have to try some bronze colors!

  6. This is such a nice go-to look, it really suits you! Its funny how we all have different makeup looks that we feel our best in - personally I could never wear red lips on a day to day basis, but I can see why you do as it looks lovely on you!

    1. Thanks, Nicola! I find it suits me, too :) Yeah, that's what I love! When I hear people say they're going to be "daring" wearing a bold color and I'm sitting here thinking it's nothing. But to wear a smokey and nude, now that's daring for me! haha
