Hello everyone, I hope you’re all well! Today I’m sharing my incredibly simple, six product everyday makeup look that is my go-to for university. I don’t have too much time in the mornings, because let’s face it I’d rather spend those extra ten minutes in bed, and I like to keep getting ready as quick and easy as possible so I can get on with my day. All I use is these six products for a simple, natural, and comfortable face for the day.
Bareminerals spf15 matte foundation – I’ve talked about this foundation more times than I can count. It’s been my favourite foundation since I started using it in December 2013. It’s perfect for my oily skin, is easy to build up to your desired coverage, and most importantly for me, is breathable and comfortable to wear. The application is so simple to, it couldn’t not be in my quick everyday makeup. Just simply buff a small amount into your skin and let it work it’s magic, and build it up until you reach the coverage you’re after. On a daily basis, I only use a very small amount and it’s the perfect balance of covering any blemishes and making me look and feel better, whilst looking natural and feeling minimal.
L’oreal true match concealer – I recently wrote a full review on this concealer which you can read here. It’s a trusty, affordable concealer you can’t really go wrong with. It’s great coverage, and blends well into my skin, and works well with the bareminerals foundation. It’s perfect for brightening up my eyes, and hiding away any blemish.
Bareminerals rose radiance powder – This has been a favourite of mine for a long time now, and since you only need the tiniest amounts it’s lasted me ages too which is great. I gently blend a small amount of this onto my cheeks which helps warm up my cheeks and give them a natural glow, with that little bit of shimmer. I’ve got pale skin, so I never go heavy with blusher or bronzer, I look for products that give me a natural, subtle glow and bit of warmth and that’s why this is a real favourite.
Bareminerals mineral veil – I always finish any makeup look with the mineral veil from bareminerals by gently dusting this all over my face. It goes hand in hand with the foundation, and helps keep me matte for longer, and helps set my makeup well. Again, as with most bareminerals products, a little goes a long way.
Clinique high impact mascara – This mascara is more of a recent try, but I’m loving it. It just does everything you’d want your everyday mascara to do – it lengthens, it volumizes, but it doesn’t clump – in fact it separates the lashes really well. I’m getting more trying more of Clinique makeup, and falling more in love with it. Just one coat of this mascara is the perfect amount for my quick and easy minimal makeup, it gives me a perfect amount of length, definition and volume; ready to tackle the day.
Bareminerals marvellous moxie lipstick (strip) – Of course my every day makeup is going to include a trusty nude lipstick, naturally. I’m currently loving the bareminerlas moxie lipstick in the shade Strip. It’s a perfect nude, with good pigmentation and lasting, whilst being nice and moisturising on my lips which is what I always look for in lipsticks.
