Some days you don’t have that long to get ready or you just need to be ready quickly, but still look perfected and polished – I’ve perfected this routine down to about 15 minutes and use products that I know work well for me, I’ve included skincare as I think this is just am important as the makeup itself!
In the mornings I use my Cetraben Daily Cleanser, followed by either Garnier Micellar Water in summer or PIXI Glow Tonic in the winter months. I then go in with Bare Minerals Skin Longevity and Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Defense Moisturiser. That’s usually how far I go with skincare on a day to day basis, I have sensitive skin and don’t like to overwhelm my skin. I also find that this skincare routine leaves me with glowy bright skin ready for everyday life!
For makeup I usually skip primer, this moisturiser leaves a lovely luminous glow to my skin so I don’t feel the need for a primer too. For foundation, I use the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue in the shade Buttercream, this has a lighter coverage but still perfects the skin without looking heavy! I then go in with the NARS Creamy Concealer and focus this on the undereye area and anywhere else that needs a little extra coverage making sure to blend it out seamlessly. I use Bare Minerals Mineral Veil to set this all in place, this helps to make everything last a little longer and your skin looks less shiny.
For the rest of my skin, I tend to use the Rimmel Natural bronzer and Becca Vanilla Quartz highlighter, but this part changes the most – if I’m going out in the evenings I’ll add some contour using the Urban Decay Shape Shifter Palette and a little blush, recently I’ve been loving the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed.
For eyes, this is really time dependent if I time to spare I’ll blend a little eyeshadow into the crease, usually a mid brown tone and apply winged liner – I’ve been loving the Bare Minerals Lash Domination Ink Liner, it’s so easy to use and lasts ages on the eyes. I then apply lots of mascara as I find this helps make my eyes look more open and awake, I love the Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara, L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara and Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. I fill in my brows using the Soap and Glory Brow Pencil and L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper Gel.
For my lips I leave them pretty natural, usually, I just use a nude gloss I love the Bare Minerals Gloss in Tantalize, Becca Gloss in Opal or Rose Quartz and the Max Factor Gloss in Lustrous Sands.
