And welcome to today's blog post, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I decided to have a quiet weekend and catch up on some much needed blogging, and i also got a chance to catch up on some of my favourite vloggers too!!
So for today Make-up Monday's blog post I'm going to share with you this quick NATURAL EVERYDAY/WORK LOOK that I do each morning before heading off to work!!
So as i do be in quite a rush in the mornings i try to go for look that is both natural and quick!!
If you want to know how I get this Make-up Look just right, then just keep scrolling down the page:
So after washing my hair and all that good stuff, i dive straight into doing my Make-up for the day ahead, now this look I go for is a look I've been using for the past couple of months but since summer has begun I have toned it down a bit as some days in the office it gets a little too warm and the last think i want is sweat removing my foundation!!
First I apply this new product which i'm loving at the minute and that is NIVEA DAILY ESSENTIALS EXPRESS HYDRATION PRIMER, which provides an even and smooth base to apply your make-up on, and it also helps your make-up stay on too which i love!! I actually love applying this on my face in the mornings as its really light and absorbs really well into my skin!!
Next its Foundation, like always the foundation I use is the MAYBELLINE SUPERSTAY BETTER SKIN FOUNDATION in the shade 021 NUDE, but since its summer i have decided to mix it with a hint of REVLON'S PHOTOREADY SKINLIGHTS FACE ILLUMINATOR in the shade 100 BARE LIGHT, this gives a great sunkissed glow to my face.
I like to apply this using my Foundation Sponge as it gives great coverage to my face even in them hard to reach areas such as in between my nose and the corners of my eyes.
Once I've applied my Foundation I then apply some Powder to my face, the one that i'm using is from THE NATURAL COLLECTION, which is the Netural Translusent Shade. I like applying this to my face as it sets the Foundation and also the powder helps with preventing the Makeup to be removed if sweat outbreaks occur!!
Next on to Brows, I'm a big lover of Brows i just can't seem to get enough of them!! As i do be in a rush in the mornings, i just grab my ESSENCE BLACK BROW DESIGNER PENCIL and shade in and around my brows, i then take my spool and bled the shade into my brow creating a natural look!! Not to dark and not to light is my little saying when it comes to shading in those brows!!
I then move on to a little Contouring, now usually for Contouring i would use my CROWN 10 COLOUR CONCEALER PALETTE which contain a cream textured concealers. Now with it been early morning i don't get much time to contour my face as much as i would like too. So that's where a handy BRONZER comes in, the one that i'm using at the moment is the MAXI DELIGHT BRONZER FROM BOURJOIS in the shade 02 Olive/Tanned Skin.
I just use my contouring brush and apply a strong amount of strokes to my cheekbones to create a dark consistency and I also apply it to the different areas that i want to stand out on my face such as the sides of my Nose, my Hair-line and my Jaw Line!! Then to finish off i then apply a little BLUSHER to the apples of my Cheeks, the Blusher i am using here is LANCOME'S SUBTIL LONG LASTING POWDER BLUSH in the shade 02 Rose Sable!!
Now on to my EYESHADE......
So keeping my look nice and natural, i like to apply Brown Shades when creating an everyday look, especially when going to work, you can't get it wrong.... so first i have applied this Cream shade from my YOUNGBLOOD MOULIN ROUGH PALETTE (shade Revue) to my upper brow line.
Next i then apply this gorgeous Brown Shimmer Shade from BOURJOIS (shade 77 Taupe paillettes) to my eye lids, I have been in love with this colour for a while now, its just such a lovely warm shade to have on my eyes and its really natural too!!
On to applying some Eyeliner, there is never a day that i don't wear eyeliner (when going to bed of course) but on an everyday look I like to apply this to my lower lash line and to my top lash line like so, i just feel it gives your eyes a nice dramatic look to them, the eyeliner i use is THE LONG LASTING EYE PENCIL BY ESSENCE, in the shade 01 Black Fever!!
I also apply some Mascara to my lashes, but up first i like to curl them followed by applying my favourite Mascara which is BOURJOIS VOLUME GLAMOUR ULTRA CARE MASCARA to them!!
And to finish off this beautiful look, i like to apply a natural Lipstick, but before i apply my lipstick, i firstly like to apply a Lip Liner Pencil around the line of my bottom & top lip to give more definition and a little bit of a pout look to them.
Then i apply my Lipstick which is from the ESSENCE MATT FINISH RANGE in the shade 07 Natural Beauty, i actually like this shade as its really natural and can work to per-fect a beautiful Everyday/Work look!!!
