As you can tell, i’ve been a little M.I.A these past few months..
But I’m finally back!
If you’re like moi, whos always on the go-go, I usually like to keep my makeup simple but put together, so basically it lasts long and I don’t look like one of those zombies from the walking dead!
So as you can probably tell by the title, these are for the ladies (or Gentlemen) who have a super busy lifestyle, whether it be studying, working, always doing errands or doing all three!
I always prep my skin with a moisturiser, I’m currently using Pacifica Coconut Probiotic Water Rehab Cream, I seriously don’t know why I haven’t seen people talk about this brand before, but this has saved my stressed out skin! it has a gel/velvety texture, its not too thick and I can feel my skin quickly absorbs it which is what I seriously need when I’m in a rush! plus its cruelty-free and oil free which is a mega plus!
depending on my skins mood, i like to switch between a BB or a lightweight foundation. But lately I’ve been hooked on the Double Wear Cushion BB since it feels light, but does the coverage I need and gives me that hint of glow. or the Double wear BB All-Day Glow. If my skin needed more coverage then I’d switch to a Nars all day luminous weightless foundation. (Can you tell I’m into the luminous ones?).
obviously being in a rush you have no time to find that foundation brush or that beauty blender!! so the key tools here are hands. yep, hands. either way it blends! and your limited in time so why not? just make sure you wash your hands before, you dont wanna add unwanted stuff on your face.
Next I apply Dior Addict Lip Sugar Scrub to exfoliate those lips! (its winter here, radiators on..you know..) and whilst they’re doing their exfoliation, I move on to they eyes and apply Marc jacobs Highliner in the shade (Earth)quake, I don’t know about you, but brown eyeliners are my go-to color, it won’t look too strong like black and it’s perfect for everyday! then of course mascara, I use the Pure Color Envy Lash Multi Effects.
With time ticking and the sugar scrub now melted I head back to the lips and use either Pure Color Envy-Quiet Riot for the days I’m feeling for a bold lip colour orrr Clinique Pop oil (for lips and cheeks) in Nectar Glow for that nice juicy effect.
Finally the glow, if I have time to spare then I’ll add MAC Mineralize Skinfinish- Soft and Gentle to the high points of my face and voila!! you’re good to go!
What products do you use when you’re always on the move? I’d love to try them out!
Peace & lurrv!
