♡ The Everyday Face

August 09, 2013


My everyday face at the moment consists of a handful of products that require minimum effort and time, yet still create a natural base that lasts well throughout the day.

Starting with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (review here), I use my fingers to blend it seamlessly into my skin for an almost undetectable finish without compromising on coverage. To cover dark circles and any remaining redness I use the Collection 2000 illuminating concealer which is perfect for me but may be a bit too sheer for those wanting higher coverage. To add a healthy glow I've then been reaching for the Bourjois Cream Blush in 03 Rose Tender (review here) which leaves a soft shimmer finish negating the need for highlighter.

For my eyes I always start with Nars' Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base to prevent creasing throughout the day before blending Maybelline's Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze over the entire lid. I've been addicted to this recently as it's so easy to apply yet there's something about the bronze colour that makes it look like a lot more effort was required. I then add a few lashings of my favorite mascara, L'oreal Volume Million Lashes, which adds just the right amount of volume and length without smudging throughout the day. Finally, a swipe of Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 05 Candy Shimmer leaves a gorgeous tint of coral whilst keeping my lips moisturized.

Easy Peasy
