Welcome to my week of blogs! I hope you enjoy them. Hopefully there is something for everyone here and I thought I would start with getting the week off on a super speedy makeup look that works so well on a busy “I just need to get out the door fast” day!
I’m going to have to be leaving the house at 7am on Saturdays soon and I am slightly worried about it as let’s face it, I’m pretty bad at getting up quickly in the mornings. Recently my skin has been having issues on one side of my face and so I have been wearing less makeup in a mission to sort it out. The silver lining of this is that I have found a new easy makeup routine to enjoy in these summer months when we just don’t want as much on our skin.
I have taken foundation out of my everyday makeup bag and made the most of a little concealer dabbed in a few minimal areas. I have focused more on my eyes and avoided blush as I am trying not to put too many products on my cheeks. As an everyday look I think this is nice and gives me a bit more life in my face without being over the top for day time.
Concealer: Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer in Ivory
Eyeshadow primer: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original
Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette
Half Baked (all over lid), Foxy (brow bone), Chopper (outer lid), Tease (crease)
Mascara: Seventeen Waterproof Mascara
Prep and condition the brows with the Benefit Browvo! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer.
Use the Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel in Light to lightly brush the brow hairs against the direction of growth to coat and then brush them in the direction of growth to set them.
Smooth a bit of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original over the eyelids.
Use the Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette for the eye shadow. Apply “Half Baked” all over lid and then “Foxy” to the brow bone. Next use “Chopper” to lightly add a bit more depth by applying to the outer lid. Finally, apply “Tease” to the crease of each eyelid.
Apply a very thin line of Clinique Cream Shaper for Eyes in Black Diamond to the upper lash line of each eye.
Finish with applying Seventeen Waterproof Mascara.
I have been applying Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer in Ivory underneath my eyes. I have also been using it on any patchy/red areas such as my chin, forehead and around my nose.
Apply Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm 6g in Coming Up Rosy to finish off your effortless look.
Let me know if you like this look and if you have any tips for getting up quickly in the mornings!!
