♡ The Everyday Face #2

October 18, 2013

For days when I'm lacking in creativity, time, or simply energy, I've been reaching for the same handful of products to make sure I'm not mistaken for sporting my Halloween costume early...

As my skin is still the slightest bit tanned I've been using my Jouer Matte Moisture Tint daily for just enough coverage to hide redness and blur imperfections whilst leaving skin looking natural and radiant. I use the Real Techniques buffing brush for a quick and easy flawless finish, perfect for when your a bit short on time. For any blemishes that still need a little more coverage I dab on some of the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and then use it under my eyes to disguise the tell-tail signs of a late night (reading before bed is lethal).

For a wash of subtle colour and shimmer I've been using the Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Alhambra and finishing off with lashings of mascara. Max Factor's Waterproof False Lash Effect is one of my current favorites, full yet natural looking lashes and a formula that simply does not budge. You've been warned, do not apply without having a heavy duty eye makeup remover on hand!

For a hint of colour the Stial Convertible Colour in Gerbera has been gracing my cheeks daily and i've dug out Mac's Shy Lipstick for a subtle wash of peachy-pink goodness.

Ten minutes in total with minimum brain power required and I'm good to go.
What are your daily staples?
