Waking up at 6.30am five times a week hardly inspires my inner creative beauty babe. Instead, all I want is to be able to stay in bed for as long as possible while not regretting my ogre-like reflection at my 11am tea break. This natural make up look is quick and easy for you early starters and with a pop of lip colour, could take you through to evening drinks!
Trusted products are the key to a speedy look. Here I used a pump of MakeUp Forever’s HD Foundation (now available at Debenhams on Oxford Street!), blended with a brush and then the Nars Creamy Concealer to cover my dark circles and any blemishes. For cheeks, I used just a light dusting of the bronzer from the beautiful Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Palette. My eyebrows were just quickly lightly filled in with Soap & Glory’s Brow Archery.
For eyes I opted for something simple but pretty – for eyeshadow I mixed Mac’s Patina and Sabre, which you can read more about here, and used Urban Decay’s Perversion mascara as it provides length and curl with just a couple of layers. I chose a ‘your lips but better’ shade to finish off the look with Chanel’s Rouge Coco in ‘Cecile’ as it is low maintenance, nourishing and easy to top up throughout the day.
This is a really quick and easy make up look, which manages to still look natural and pretty!
