Achieve a bronzed taupe makeup look with cream-based products

If you want a natural look with a hint of shimmer, then using CC cream instead of foundation is a good start. CC cream moisturizes the skin while blurring pores and imperfections, which makes it the perfect base product for “no makeup” makeup days.
Since you always want to emphasize your eyes, use pink shimmer cream eye shadow for a soft, romantic look. Taupe eye shadow doubles as liner here, and a rosy pink multi-stick fills in for lipstick. If you decide you want to touch up your blush or lipstick during the day, the multi-stick is portable and adds just a hint of color where you need it.
