I have been really enjoying using less makeup recently whilst still feeling like I want “something” on my face. For the days that I wear makeup, I have been loving keeping it simple with a more natural vibe. I have even been leaving off mascara for lazy days. In the summer especially, I feel we want as little on our faces as possible. I hope you enjoy this natural look and with few products too.
On My Face
Lip balm: Lanolips Lemonaid
First of all, I moisturise my face, apply SPF and use my Lanolips lip balm. Since using this lip balm, my lips have been in much better condition. I rarely wear lipstick now. Then, I go in with my foundation. I have used Clinique foundation for years and I just find it creates such a dewy look, which I love. The coverage is great too, but you can use less product for a lighter base also.
I then apply concealer to any blemishes and under eyes to brighten them up. I find a little of this product goes a long way. I’m yet to need to buy a second tube! After concealer, I then apply the Anastasia brow gel to the outer parts of my brows and the Benefit brow gel to the inner parts of my brows. I find this great as the darker tint works best on the outer area and the lighter one is less harsh for the inner brow. I have light eyebrows and so I don’t like something too harsh.
That’s it! Really simple and quick. I would obviously make more of an effort for the evening and days I feel like doing eye makeup, but this is enough for those admin or teaching days.
What is your makeup routine like?
