Current Everyday Face: Before & After

Hi guys!

My makeup life has been very boring of late, which is probably why I’ve been AWOL. But, I have been enjoying cutting down on the time it takes to trowel my face on every morning. The extra time has been spent hitting snooze another 20 times while attempting to stop the cat from sitting on my face.

My skin has been pretty parched and any kind of base makes it look like the Sahara so I’ve been skipping it altogether and opting for a richer moisturiser with a bit of concealer to cover my dark circles. Nothing too heavy – Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer does the job. It doesn’t cover the darkness completely but improves the situation significantly. I set that quickly with some powder, I’m liking Bourjois Healthy Balance at the moment. I also put a bit on my nose to stop it getting shiny during the day, and a little through my eyebrows to get rid of any moisture before I go in with Anastasia DipBrow pomade. I buff in some Benefit Hoola bronzer on my cheekbones, jawline and temples to warm up my face and balance out the lightness of the concealer under my eyes. Then, a quick slick of mascara – I’m not particularly loyal to one particular mascara right now but Maybelline Lash Sensational gives a nice separated effect, making me look a little less sleep deprived. Finally, a nude lip finishes my face off before I dash out the door. I keep going back to Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet lip pencil in Nude Perfection is literally the perfect nude (full review here).

And that’s it! This look takes me 10-15 minutes to do which is a welcome change to the previous 45 minutes I used to take!

FOTD: Matte Neutral Eyes & Glowing Skin

Anyways, this is my go-to daytime look if I feel like making an effort, which when you work in an office that has more than one weak-bladdered dog wandering around, isn’t very often. I don’t always use the exact same products to create the same look, so I’m certain everyone will have stuff in their makeup collection to at least attempt it.
