FOTD: Khaki and Copper Tones for a Zoom Call

Wore this look on a Zoom call with a beauty brand yesterday (it was Urban Decay to talk about their latest Naked palette, for the nosey noodles who were wondering!), and in classic K-dawg fashion I banged it out in 15 minutes before it started because that’s how I roll.

And, um…Connor also had a social distancing playdate at the park shortly before the call was scheduled to start, and we made it back home by the skin of our teeth, ha ha ha! Whenever I’m pressed for time but want to look gussied up, I always fall back on smokey eyes and nude lips. This khaki and copper version relies on just two products.

I paired the eyes with peach lips and cheeks because EASY. PEASY.

I’m also wearing a little more base makeup than I have been lately because I knew that “makeup people” (air quotes) were going to be present, so if there were ever a time to load up on a little more concealer, this was it.

Since we’re on the topic of quick looks, what’s your default medium-impact makeup look when you’re pressed for time?

Makeup worn in this look



  • MAC Coppertone Blush (apples) — a staple summertime shade
  • Hourglass Vanish Highlighting Stick in Champagne Flash (upper cheekbones and inner corners of eyes) — subtly shiny when buffed out


  • NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm in Luxe (lips) — lightweight and moisturizing


  • Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter in Tan (all over face) — a must-have for luminous base
  • Kevyn Aucoin Supernatural Concealer in Medium 06 (cheeks) — natural-looking satin finish
  • Estee Lauder Hydra Prep in Medium Deep (under eyes) — especially kind to ladies with fine lines
