Who needs a full face of makeup when you can have more sleep in the mornings?
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to look like I’ve literally just woken up (even though I have) I just have better things to do (sleep) than spend a stupid amount of time on my face (for it to come off again during the day anyway), plus makeup is uncomfortable! I’m not knocking anyone who choses to spend their mornings getting ready, but it is simply not for me day-to-day, but I still want to look nice and like I made an effort.
My makeup routine is something that I’ve simplified and worked on over the last year and, lads, I’m ready to share it.
My 5 staple items
Anyone else have those 5 staple makeup items that they use everyday? No matter how much makeup I have, I’ll always go to my same favourite products, both out of routine and convenience. Plus, I wake up way to late to even consider spending too much time thinking about face in the mornings!
My staple items consist of:
1- La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur in Light-Medium
With moisturiser within it, but also adding a bit of soft coverage. Rubbing this in with my hands (gross but weirdly satisfying, and also my favourite application method for BB Cream) means a quick and easy application.
2- L’Oreal Wake Me Up Concealer in Light
Something light, highlighting but also good coverage, soft to apply but stays well throughout the day. I apply this under my eyes and on any blemishes.
3- Benefit Dallas Bronzer
A must to add some faux-tan and hydration. Tip: swipe beside and under the eyes to instantly look sun kissed.
4- Benefit Sugarbomb Blush
Adds a bit of colour and depth to the face. I use a big fluffy brush so it isn’t as concentrated and glides over the skin.
5- L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara
My everyday must-have. Brightens the eyes, and you can do as much or as little as you please.
Distinguishing my staple items ensures that I can quickly shove them on and go, and also still look like I made an effort and look somewhat ready for the day!
