I say that this is my ‘everyday make-up look’ but the truth is, I don’t actually wear make-up everyday. I like to let my skin breathe when I can. However, If I have got somethin’ on… Right now, it will be this. It’s so easy, so low maintenance and so perfect for someone who like me, is always busy, always has somewhere to be…something to do. It is perfect for a working mum, a stay at home mum, a career lady and all round mum boss. And best of all, It’s pretty budget friendly.
P R O D U C T S
Foundation – Rimmel Match Perfection (24hr Moisture Hydration)
I apply this quite thinly over my nose, cheeks and chin and anything left on the brush I take up onto my forehead. I don’t like to look or feel like I’m caked in make-up. Occasionally I will dot a few tiny spots of concealer (Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer) around if I have a blemish or hormonal redness around my nose but this isn’t an essential step everyday.
Eyeshadow – Chopper From The Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
I push a little of this into my eyelids (it has a tendency to fall out). I take this about three quarters of the way up to the crease and subtly blend it up to the line.
Brows – Maybelline Brow Drama In Medium Brown
I tend to just stroke my brows in to place with this so that they set…and behave.
Lashes – Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
I wiggle this up from the root and then apply it at an angle to individual lashes. This gives texture and a nice, natural look.
Lips – MAC Frost Lipstick In The Shade Angel
I prime my lips with a carmex lip balm and then apply lipstick straight to my lips. This is a beautiful, subtle pink…and I love it.
Bronzer – The Body Shop Honey Bronzer In Light
I apply this where the sun would naturally hit and rather than a harsh contour, I sweep the bronzer in a ‘3’ motion down my temple, lower cheekbones and jaw. This gives such a healthy look.
Blusher – Nars Blusher In Orgasm
Ahh, my favourite blusher, my holy grail. I gently sweep this onto the apples of my cheeks and blend upwards, towards the top of my cheekbones.
And that is it, done. I told you it was simple!
