The No Makeup Makeup Look


Some days I don't fancy wearing heavy makeup and when I work I like to just wear a bit to make me look alive but most of the time I can't be bothered to do a full face, especially when I'm getting up at 6.30 in the morning.

Sometimes I don't bother with a base but if my skin is looking a little red I've really been liking the Body Shop Teatree Flawless BB Cream which is perfect for adding a little bit of coverage but feels lovely and light on the skin. I really like that this has tea tree in it which calms my skin down on a bad skin day, so really it's doing two good things for my skin. With or without the BB cream I usually always wear a little concealer on blemishes and under the eyes, for this I really love the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, it's not great for under the eyes but I find using a very light layer gives a nice finish. To give my skin a bit of colour I love The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 01 which for my pale skin gives a really natural looking glow all over.

I keep it very basic with the eyes, I rarely go without eyeliner, at the moment I've been using the Supercat liner for a really quick and easy line followed by the Eyeko Lengthening Skinny Mini Brush Mascara for a very natural look, this is not one that I use when I want a lot of volume but is great for  very natural look. To keep my brows in place and giving them a bit of extra definition I use my well trusted Maybelline Brow Drama, I have quite thick brows so I don't need a lot of help with them and when I don't have much going on with my eyes a heavy brow can look a bit like two slugs on my face, not my best look.

I hope you liked my quick tour of my very light makeup look, this would be perfect for someone going to school who isn't allowed to wear much makekup or for people who like a light makeup look. Thanks for reading.
