Game Day Makeup

For me, Sunday is football day. I'm probably in the vast minority of beauty bloggers who really love sports (though perhaps not?) but I am a big football and hockey fan, and love nothing more than sitting around with some chips and dip, a few drinks and watching the game with friends and family. Aside from being a huge New York Rangers fan in hockey, because of Jake, I've also become a big Chicago Bears fan in the past few years. I had always enjoyed football in the past, but now it's really fun watching the Bears play (even in unfortunate losses like they had today).

Aside from the Bears, I try and watch as many games as I can because (confession time) I'm a huge fantasy football fan. I know, I know, when you think fantasy football, I am probably not the average player you would imagine. That being said, I am the proud reigning champ (and only girl) in my league, and am currently tied for first so far this year (just to throw a little bragging in there...).

Anyways, the whole point of bringing up my love of football was to talk about game day makeup, and I've definitely gotten a bit off track with that. Often I'll spend the day at a sports bar or a friend's house watching the games, making a day of it, so I like to keep my look pretty natural and low maintenance. For this look I've been using my heavily favored base duo, which consists of the lovely Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation and the By Terry Touche Veloutee for underneath my eyes. These two help even out my skin a bit while still looking very skin-like and natural, a look I much prefer, especially when I'm trying not to look all dolled up (I am usually hanging out with a bunch of guys who couldn't care less, after all).

After my base is done I use just a bit of the lovely, creamy Nudestix Lip & Cheek Pencil in Love on my cheeks and lips. I haven't spoken much about this recent purchase, but this stick is so wonderful for a way to do makeup on the go. Love is such a gorgeous, natural pink shade that adds just a hint of color to your cheeks and lips, perfect for a natural look.

To finish off my look, I add a tiny bit of Charlotte Tilbury's Colour Chameleon in Bronzed Garnet to my lower lash line for a hint of definition, and then swipe a few layers of Tarte Lights, Camera Splashes Waterproof Mascara to my upper lashes. And I'm done! It's a really simple, easy makeup look for a lazy day, and has become my heavily favored style for game days.
