One of the most hilarious conversations I ever had with Kyle came a few months after we started dating. Somehow the conversation turned to what kind of makeup he liked on women. He answered “I like the No Makeup look.” I was like, “Really? Wow, that’s interesting. Like no makeup at all?” By the way, almost every boyfriend I’ve ever had has said this exact same thing…but of course there’s a catch… “Can you give me an example of that,” I asked Kyle ever so sweetly. “Miranda Kerr,” he answered, “She doesn’t wear any makeup.” I almost spit out my cocktail. YOU MEAN THE SUPERMODEL MIRANDA KERR. WHO DEFINITELY WEARS MAKEUP.
The moral of this story, ladies and gents, is that my now-husband, and almost any other guy I’ve dated, LOVE the look of no makeup, achieved by expertly applied makeup. LOL. And by the way, I too think Miranda Kerr is the best example of this ever. She always looks glowy, flawless, awake, and ready for the day. And homegirl clearly knows how to apply her makeup! In honor of that adorable conversation with my husband eight years ago, I thought I would share with you all my own personal trickster tutorial to achieve that “I Woke Up Like This” look!
I’m linking all products below the video, as well as some of my favorite makeup brushes, since I get a lot of questions about brushes as well. Please let me know in the comments below if you like this tutorial– any share any other tutorial videos you’d like to see!
