I found this post in my drafts! I have no idea why I didn’t just click “publish” gor nearly a year. Well, as it’s the season to get glam, I’ll let you read it!
These days I don’t always have time to pull out the makeup brushes and luxuriate in blending various powders. I am still finding my way around cream products which are quick to apply with my fingers. It’s easier to get away with minimal makeup if your skin is in good condition so remember to drink lots of water! It also helps if you can find the time to get your brows done which is quite tricky with a constantly hungry newborn.
I didn’t want to look tired when visiting family but a full face of glam was certainly out of the question! I had to think what was absolutely essential and then add a little something special.
I went for:
Huda Beauty Overachiever Concealer in Peanut Butter 24G under my eyes and around my lips where the skin is darker.
Carron Cosmetics Pressed Powder in M3 to take away shine on my nose and set the concealer.
Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lip and Cheeks in Uber Beige to add a flush of colour to my cheeks.
Pat McGrath Labs Bronze Skin Fetish Highlighter and Balm Duo to highlight my cheekbones.
Pat McGrath Labs Permagel ultra glide eye pencil in Shade on my waterline.
Pat McGrath Labs Silver 005 cream on my eyelids only
Pat McGrath Labs Silver 005 pigment over the eye cream using my Real Techniques base shadow brush
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara
Pat McGrath Labs LustGloss Lip Gloss in Pale Fire Nectar
9 products and one brush!
I felt brighter and my sister was astounded that I wasn’t wearing foundation. Mission accomplished! What are your quick makeup tricks?
