When I say minimal, don’t be fooled – it still takes me three and a half years to do this look. No matter how early I start my makeup, you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll still be frantically hurling myself out the door in a cloud of panic and confusion. However, if unlike me, you have your shit together, you can do this look in 15 minutes so don’t let my bad example put you off.
I’ve been opting for less makeup recently, gradually weaning myself off heavy eyeliner, and most days I go foundation-free.
Apologies for the horrendous lighting – it’s dark when I get up, it’s dark when I get home and the spotlights make for extremely shadowy photos. Flash is all I had left.
Disclaimer: This is almost all drugstore products – the lipstick is MAC but I’m sure you’ll get over it.
