Everyday makeup

I'm quite lazy when it comes to makeup. On days when I start work at 7am I tend to aim for a perfect base with just a few coats of mascara. This particular look is from a day off when I had a little longer to get ready but still didn't go all out.

I start with the Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch primer, or polyfiller in a bottle. It's so god damn creamy and I find this, then the Revlon PhotoReady Illuminator sealed in with the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation make for the perfect base. I conceal under my eyes with the Revlon ColorStay concealer and then pat in the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish. My base is finished with a sweep of the Revlon Powder blush in Racy Rose. I can never quite pack on the blush as well as when I get my makeup done by makeup artists, but I'm working on it.

I go in with the brows next and I'm currently using the MeMeMe Arch Angel. I use one end to tame and shape my brows and the other end to highlight just under my brow bone. I use my finger to rub in the Maybelline Colour Tattoo Cream eyeshadow in On and On Bronze and blend it out with my Real Techniques base shadow brush. A few coats of the Soap and Glory Thick & Fast mascara and I'm done. Not forgetting my beautiful Chatter Box lipstick from the MAC Amplified Creme range.

  3. I love the Maybelline Colour Tattoos! Such an effortless product. I really like Soap & Glory's Thick & Fast mascara at first however I've found that my tube has gotten too thick to really use properly even after thinning it out in a cup of hot water x
