Quick & Easy Makeup Routine | 2015


PicMonkey Collage1

Here’s my ‘Quick & Easy’ Makeup look
When putting on makeup, I like it to be simple and lightweight. I mainly focus on my brows and eyes and only put concealer and powder/ foundation on days I need it most.

Today I went with just some concealer under my eyes, some pressed powder, subtle pink lips and some eyeliner to make my eyes stand out.

My skin is not working with me lately and I have been breaking out a lot more than usual so my skin isn’t perfect but doing face masks and not wearing foundation is helping get rid of them.

Let’s get on with what products I have one my face;


Clinique | Turnaround Daytime Revitalising Moisturiser

I first like to use a moisturiser, if it is warm outside it is best to put a moisturiser on that has some kind of sun protection. I use the Clinique Turnaround Daytime Revitalising Moisturiser. This is a lightweight moisture that helps hydrate my skin so it doesn’t get dry throughout the day.

This moisturiser also gives your skin a little bit of a glow, which is great if you don’t want to wear foundation.

I got this in a set with some other productions but the bigger tube of this is £30 and you can find it here.

Collection | Long Lasting Perfection Concealer.

Next I go in with my concealer, The concealer I use is the Collection Long Lasting Perfection Concealer.

I use this concealer under my eyes, around my nose and on any blemishes or redness on my face. This also helps brighten under your eyes.

The colour i got matched my skin perfectly and it makes it look like I don’t have any concealer on.

With this production I like to use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush, This just help me make sure the concealer is all nicely blended in to my skin.

I will be doing a separate blog post with my review on this concealer.

This concealer is £4.16 and you can find it here.

Clinique | Instant Lift For Brows

I just lightly brush this along my eyebrows to help create definition and make my eyebrows a little bolder. If you want to see my full review on this product, the link to my blog post is *here*.

This brow product is £16.00 and you can find it here.

Bourjois | Mega Liner Ultra Black 

If you read my last blog post you would have seen that me and this eyeliner just didn’t get on, but I gave it another few goes before giving up on it and I really like how easy it is to line the eyes with this but i am still getting used to doing a winged line with it.

A winged eyeliner look is a look I always go for as even if you are not wearing foundation or lipstick it helps to create a nice subtle look.

£7.49 and you can find it here.

No7 | Lash Impact Intense Volume

If I want nice long lashes this is what I use, this massacre helps lengthen and make my eyelashes appear thicker. This helps bring the eyeliner and eyelashes together to make them bolder and the eyes stand out more.

This mascara is £13.50 and you can find it here.

Revlon | Nearly Naked Pressed Powder

I like to go in with a powder after doing my eyes and concealer as I feel it helps hold everything in place. I chose this powder as i recently got it and I have been amazed at how nice and natural it makes my skin look without being too heavy.

I use this to set my concealer and also around my t zone. The packaging is also great to throw into your bag and carry it around with you as it has a mirror and a little sponge to help dab onto the places you need.

I use this powder with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.

I will be doing a separate review of the Revlon Nearly Naked powder and concealer on a blog post soon.

This pressed powder is £7.99 and you can find it here.

Bourjois | Rouge Edition Velvet 07

Lastly I like to pull my makeup look altogether with this lipstick, If you read my last blog post about my Bourjois makeup haul you would of saw how much I fell in love with this lipstick shade. It’s such a lovely subtle lip colour that goes with just about anything.

I just use the applicator to put the product on my lips and then use my fingers to help blend it in.

And here is the finished look!
