Get the Look: Malaika's Subtle Makeup

Its no secret that Chic Mommy and I are fans of Malaika's beauty looks. Whether she's glammed up or au naturel, Malaika always looks flawless. Below, I've done a makeup breakdown of Malaika wearing very subtle makeup. The shimmery gold eyes, light blush and glossed lips make for a perfect daytime look for a casual weekend outing such as a picnic, brunch with friends or just getting some sun (can you tell I'm excited for some warm weather?!)

To get Malaika's look:

Face: Foundation is not required here. Only minimal coverage is need with concealer such as Stila Cover Up Stick which provides great coverage for blemishes and/or dark circles. Apply a rose pink blush such as NARS Blush in Outlaw with a fan brush. The fan brush will deposit color more lightly than a regular blush brush.

Eyes: Apply a shimmery gold shadow such Lorac Gold Eye Shadow as all over the lids up until right under the brow bone. Line both top and bottom rims of the eyes with a dark brown eyeliner such as MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Stubborn Brown. Apply one coat of black mascara for a more natural look.

Lips: Skip the liner and apply a sheer rose lip gloss such as Lorac Lip Polish in Kiss.


  1. this is soo not a natural look, it lacks freshness. looks more suitable for office or something. She looks like she's wearing a make up mask, she's melt under the sun!

  2. hey chic mommy and kohl girl. I always read how much you love vasanti cosmetics. I just got off the phone with vasanti customer service and asked whether they had sample make-up because I had heard such great things. I also told them that you are the ones that really got me interested in their make-up. They told me they would contact you (possibly for samples, but i'm not sure) let me know if they do.

  3. thanks anu, I'll keep you posted if they e-mail me.
