Say hello to 5 whole days off work! This morning whilst doing my make up i decided i would show you what products i'm currently using for my everyday make up. Granted, it's not a lot and it's a very 'no make up' make up look. It's perfect for work and for the everyday, giving my features a bit of a highlight whilst not looking too 'done'. Save that for evenings and weekends out!
So after moisturising, i apply a small amount of the Soap & Glory Hocus Focus to my skin and wait for it to dry. This gives my skin a glow and recently without a hint of sunshine about, i've loved using it to give my skin a dewy look. Next, i'll apply Rimmel's Wake Me Up concealer underneath my eyes, around my nose and on any blemishes which i have that day. I skip foundation as recently, i've come to realise i don't need to wear foundation everyday and my skin feels so nice not being caked in makeup everyday. To set the concealer and stop any oil coming through i apply a dusting of Rimmel's Loose Face Powder in a translucent shade.
To give my cheeks and face a little colour i apply the Rimmel blush to the apple's of my cheeks and use the highlight section of the Makeup Revolution Palette to highlight on top of my cheekbones, my nose and anywhere i feel needs a little shimmer.
For the eyes i start with my brows, using the No.7 brow pencil. I just lightly fill my brows in but not too bold for everyday just enough to make them stand out. After this i apply Rimmel's Scandaleyes eyeliner to the top of my eye, no cat flick just a small outline so when i put mascara on it really brings my eyes out. For Mascara i use Clinique's High Impact Mascara to coat the lashes and then follow up with a few extra coatings of Benefit's Roller Lash Mascara which i LOVE! I like my eyelashes to flutter on a daily basis!
Finally, if i'm feeling a little more confident i'll wear some coloured lip balm from Burt's Bees or this cute little red lip balm i received in a previous Glossybox. It gives my lips some colour and moisture without having to wear lipstick so it's perfect for work and during the day.
Hope you don't mind the close up of my face! Also, my hair has faded to a lovely auburn / brown colour which i'm currently loving!
