Everyday makeup look without foundation

We are all used to using foundation as a base for our makeup to help smooth and even out our skin but sometimes (actually alot of the time) I really do not want to apply foundation to my skin because for one it goes all over your clothes and when you touch other people’s it smears majorly on theirs too, your skin does not breath because its quite thick, am one of those people who constantly touches their face so it will be all over my hands, in summer you might end up melting like a popsicle lol……

So as you see foundation is not my friend much until I have a major event like a wedding or something big to go to then I will use it.

My everyday makeup routine does not include foundation at all and I only use concealer rarely everyday. I don’t know any woman who does not like having a makeup free face but I understand sometimes you don’t have a choice in the matter like some jobs you have to have flawless makeup (e.g corporate jobs or air hostesses) or if you have problems with your skin.

For me I use the Rimmel london natural bronzer as my base which I use to help get rid of any shine on my face, it has a little bit of glitter but its really really minimal, I then use the Sleek Cleopatra’s kiss highlighter and apply the shade Sphinx.

I then apply Maybelline push up angel masscara followed by filling in my eyebrows and I finish off by applying some lipgloss and lipliner to add some colour.

And thats my everyday look done in literally about 5 minutes and remember no foundation used.

So give it a go and see if you like it or it’s a no no for you. Please let me know in the comment section below if it worked for you and if you use something else in place of foundation.

EVERYDAY MAKEUP LOOK (and its my bday!)

Hey loves hope you are doing good. We are half way through the week and I think the weeks are going so fast! they need to slow down I got a lot of things to achieve. I am so thankful to have lived for another year not everyone makes it to the age I am at and I hope I am here for many more years to come.

So to celebrate my birthday I though I would share my everyday make up look. I don’t wear makeup everyday but when I do this is the look I go for and the products I use. I always keep it natural as its an everyday look and because I am able to get it done in around 10/15 minutes ready for school runs so its really a simple look.

Products I use

I use a primer just to give me a smooth surface to work with and to avoid my face being shiny or look oily. I don’t use foundation on this look so instead I use concealer for my under eye section just to lighten it up a bit. I mix two shades (the two brown shades) because I don’t want it to be too dramatic, then I use the brown eye shadow for contouring. I use the eye shadow for contouring because I could not find the right shade for my skin tone and I thought let me try this and it worked!. I then use the metallic bronze to get the glow on my upper cheeks. For my lips I usually use a lip balm I don’t really like lip glosses because they are not smooth so some times I use lip stick and today I used a natural lip liner on top of my lip balm.

I then do my eyes and eyebrows then finish off with the pressed powder for the whole face which helps blend everything smoothly. So as you see it’s not much or hard at all.
