Beautify: Simple, Everyday Makeup

July 18, 2016

Amara Javed Everyday Makeup

I am BACK with another video my pretties. You didn’t think it would happen, did you? Well it did. And it is. And it’s here.

I am sharing my basic, everyday makeup routine with you guys. This is a REALISTIC makeup look that you can wear for work or school – no fake lashes, no cakey foundation. As mentioned before, I do have a 9-5 job and live in Dubai which means HOT HOT HUMID weather. On top of that I am incredibly lazy. This doesn’t make for an ideal situation for setting aside time for makeup application every morning. I like to spend 5-7 mins on my makeup most mornings and I like to keep it simple.

If you guys have any suggestions or ideas for videos you would like to see from me, just hit me up in the comments section or on Instagram <3

Please watch the video in HD. Thanks.

As usual I have noted down important pointers about the products + links below.



Moisturiser (not shown on video): Clinique Dramatically Different | This is my holy grail moisturiser. I have very oily skin and this is the only moisturiser that doesn’t make me greasier. It is light, and very effective.
Concealer: Maybelline FIT ME Shade 20 | I heard this concealer is being discontinued and honestly I can’t handle that. This concealer is  AH-mazing – great coverage, dries to a powder like finish and feels so good. I usually wear the shade 25, but since it is not available anywhere, I have switched to 20 which is a teensy bit light.
Face: Studio Fix Powder Shade NC 42 | Spoke about this in my last blog post, have a read.
Bronzer: MAC Mineralise Refined Golden | gorgeous bronzing shade for medium to tan skin tones. It has hints of glitter when you look at it in the pan, but it doesn’t apply shimmery.  I like to use this to sculpt my cheeks and chin on days that I don’t use contour. Which is most days.
Blush: MAC Margin | Best. Blush. Ever. It is a frosted peach colour with hints of gold that just makes me want to cry with happiness.

Mascara: Benefit Roller Lash | My eyelashes are pin straight…they are actually worse than straight, they almost point downwards, so I have to curl and use a curling mascara. I really like the Roller Lash mascara, mostly for its applicator which is silicon. I don’t think it makes my lashes stay curled all day long, but it does give them a bit of a lift.
Eyeliner: Kat Von D Ink Liner in Trooper |  I do wear winged eyeliner almost everyday, when I am feeling a little lazy I just use a pencil to trace my lashline and smoke it out a bit. You can read my detailed review about the Kat Von D eyeliner here

ABH Pomade in Dark Brown | Like some kind of loser I JUST started using this. And I love it. It is easy to apply and stays on all day. I use Dark Brown but I think I might be able to pass off as a Chocolate girl too.

Colourpop Beeper | This is a great everyday brown shade for brown girls. I love the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips because they’re major bang for the buck. For me, this formula lasts all day without budging. It is a bit drying so I try to use a balm beforehand.
MAC Honey Love |  I like to apply this lipstick literally on top of everything to lighten it up. I love how it looks when mixed with Beeper – very creamy, neutral brown.
