Last week, Rodebjer sent an "effortless beauty" look down the catwalk. Effortless beauty is a thing, I guess, and it actually takes a lot of effort.
Except this look will only take you about 10 minutes!
The woman who wears this look is too cool to care about how perfect her makeup looks. She has too much fun and knows she’s hot. (Does she? I hope she does. I’m making this up.)
This is supposed to look like you just rolled out of bed and applied makeup half asleep on top of last night’s makeup. You may be hungover and are getting ready to meet your friends up for some late brunch.
And the hair is basically a really chic comb-over. It’s perfect, really! I don’t know why I don’t wear my hair like this more often. Chic comb-overs are IN, people. You heard it here first.
Models walked down the runway with clean and natural-looking skin. I moisturized and used Clinique’s Moisture Surge CC Cream--which provides lightweight, medium coverage, to even out the skin, and Kevyn Aucoin concealer to cover up any blemishes.
I then applied a small amount of MAC blush in Mocha on the apples of the cheeks.
For the eyes, brown eyeshadow and brown eyeliner were used on the lids and below the eyes.
I first used a warm, dark brown eye shadow on the lids and under the eyes using a stiff, flat brush.
After applying the shadow, I used a brown pencil liner to heavily line the waterline, as well as the top lashes.
I then blended the liner and eyeshadow together with my index finger. I also went back and blended with some Q-tips along the bottom lash line. I worked with the liner and my index finger to get the right shade of dark, gritty brown.
On the lashes, I used a lot of mascara. I tried to build up a night’s worth and a morning’s worth, know what I mean?
I then lightly filled in the eyebrows with a black pencil liner and brushed them up with a brow brush to keep them looking natural, but with a bit of color.
The models’ lips were kept very natural with some shine to them. This chick didn’t have time to apply some lipstick, so she just used what was in her purse--probably lip balm. I used a pink tinted lip balm to finish off the look and a clear gloss on top.
The hair works best with day-(or two-)old hair.
I started by spraying some dry shampoo to the roots to create some volume. I used Dove Invigorating Dry Shampoo, which is my favorite right now. It doesn’t leave much residue and really soaks up all that hair grease. It’s the BEST drugstore dry shampoo. Seriously.
After massaging the dry shampoo into my hair, I then deeply parted the hair and secured it in a tight low ponytail with some hair covering my ears. This is suppose to be chic, remember?
The models wore a gold ring to secure their hair, but I don’t have a gold ring lying around, so I used a scrunchie. A BLUE ONE.
I then pulled part of my bangs out of the ponytail to create the “comb-over” look.
And you’re done. That was totally 10 minutes!
