Simple Makeup Ideas That Will Upgrade Your Basic Everyday Look

There is nothing more boring and tiring than repeating your everyday makeup routine again and again. The same eyebrow shape, the same nude lips that perfectly fit your skin tone and the same monotone color palette. It is time to brighten up your boring makeup routine and try out something new.

Today we've prepared some simple makeup ideas that will shake up your everyday look. These trendy looks will highlight your beautiful facial features, keeping the whole makeup look well-balanced as well as day time appropriate.


Throw some eyeshadow on your eyelids and cover them with a little bit of gloss for a dewy, youthful look. Glossy eyelids are so on trend and are the perfect way to upgrade your daytime look.


We're a fan of neutrals because of their versatility and they never go out of style. But who says neutrals have to be boring? Add soft warm color to your features with a warm color palette. Peach makeup is a beautiful neutral shade that will instantly brighten your complexion yet is a beautiful neutral that's still wearable for daytime. Try rose gold makeup for a feminine yet trendy look.

Sunkissed Eyes

Everyday Glow




If you're all about radiant and healthy skin, then skip the detailed eye makeup and go for flawless foundation. This look is all about the base and making sure you have well hydrated, nourished and plump skin before applying any makeup. Then go for light, sheer layers of luminous makeup that "look like skin." This dewy luminous glass skin trend is beautiful, ethereal and looks like you're glowing from within.

Of course, there's many different versions of wearing this "natural" look - some prefer heavy bronzer others prefer packing on the highlight - just do you babe.

Brown Smokey & Glowing Skin

Soft Glam


There is no need to explain why bold lips and natural eyes are one of the best makeup look ever. This classic look is always in style and is so easy to achieve! Go for a vibrant lip color in deep berry, burgundy, fuschia - whatever suits your personality. Finish with lots of mascara to balance out the look.

Red Lip

Soft Glam




For the days your feeling a bit sassy add a bit of color to your look! Deep royal purple hue looks gorgeous on pale skin and warm orange shades are perfect for tanned and dark skin complexion. If you're not feeling color on your entire lids, go for colored liner - it adds the same fun and whimsical vibe to your look.


Yellow & Orange


Who said you can't wear smokey eyes everyday? Substitute black eye kohl and jet black eyeshadow with a soft and wearable color palette in medium brown, dusty rose and orange. For the lips, use a soft pale lipstick to balance the look out.

Soft Pink

Pink Glam


Adding blush to your cheeks is the easiest way to add a healthy glow and a pop of color to your complexion! Peachy blush is the universal shade that looks incredibly flattering across all skin tones - when in doubt, go for peach blush! Don't be afraid to apply a little bit more blush than you normally would usually use. A natural rosy flush is one of the biggest makeup trends and it's a great little "pick me up" for your complexion.

Rosy Glow

Soft Blush

Korean Inspired


Make your cheekbones stand out with soft face contouring. Choose a matte color, that is two shades darker than your natural skin complexion and carefully apply it on your your cheeks, forehead, nose and jawline. Blend the harsh lines with a soft kabuki brush and some translucent powder for a very subtle natural finish.
