Simple Make-up Look

I love doing my make-up in the morning. I have a small collection that I like to mix up all the time, however when I find something that works I tend to keep it that way and tweak it from time to time.
At the moment i’m liking a simple make-up look that takes no time at all and feels light-weight on the skin. This makes it perfect for when you haven’t got a lot of time in the morning and need to head out the door.
This post also features some bits that aren’t seen directly on the high-street so may help you find something a bit out of the ordinary!

  1. Base
    I recently brought the Origins GinZingΒ Revitalizing Mineral MakeupΒ in the shade 01 light to replace my Bare Minerals foundation Powder. I am really liking this product at the moment as it covers any blemishes or imperfections whilst absorbing any oils on my skin. The ultra light powder gives a very light base and feels like you are applying nothing to the face however getting a decent coverage. To use simply swirl the brush over the top of the mesh inside the pot and tap off any excess. Then sweep gently across the face using the powder foundation brush that works perfectly with the powder.
    If you have any blemishes or imperfections that you want to target simply press a small brush into the pot to get more pigmentation and dab onto that area. This way you can apply more to one area without having to cover your whole face.

For the under eye area and anywhere else on the skin that needs more coverage I used the Nars Creamy concealer.Β This just gives the look a more flawless look and finishes the base perfectly without being too heavy.

2. Eyebrows/Lashes/ComplexionΒ

Β I then move onto my brows using the Mac eyeshadow in Omega. I have blonde hair and this is the perfect colour! I use an angled eyeshadow brush and apply throughout my brows and comb them. For me, this gives a really natural finish whilst giving definition.
To add warmth and glow to my complexion I have been using the My Little Beauty Face Bronzing Powder in Summer Caress.Β I managed to get my hands on this as I am subscribed to My Little Box, and have been using this across my cheeks and parts of my face where the sun naturally hits. The colour and pigmentation of this bronzer is lovely and again works really well on my skin-tone.

For lashes I have been using the Mii showstopping lash lover which I picked up from The Aqua Sauna in Center Parcs. I love this mascara as it separates, gives great length and volume and is only Β£14.50 which for a mascara these days is pretty impressive. The mascara cannot be found on the highstreet but I would highly recommend checking out their products online!

Finally I add some of the Hourglass Ambient Blush in Dim Infusion for a subtle pop of colour and I’m done! This blush is gorgeous and is well worth the investment!
