As the sun is starting to appear more frequently, I thought it might be fun to do a simple Get Ready With Me style video. As you can see I’ve kept it quite minimal and I applied most of it with my hands. I’ve a funny feeling I’ll be wearing similar makeup while in Bali, although I doubt I’ll be wearing makeup often.
I went with the Clarins BB Cream as my base, just to help even everything out. I used Bobbi Brown Corrector* and Concealer* to brighten under my eyes and just the concealer around my nose and to cover a few blemishes. I set down the centre of my face with It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores pressed powder.
On my eyes I kept it simple with the NYX Jumbo eye pencil* in Iced Mocha and blended it out with my finger. I used the Clinique High Impact* mascara Through my brows I went with NYX micro brow pencil in Taupe and topped it off with L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper to add some texture.
On to cheeks! I dabbed on some of my By Terry cream blush in Apple Glow on my cheeks, using a stipple brush to blend it out. I decided to mix two highlighters, normal behaviour. I mixed No7 Skin Illuminator* with Benefit High Beam* and then applied it to the top of my cheeks and applied it just below my eyebrows.
For lips I decided I wanted something that wouldn’t need touching up too frequently, so I opted for The Body Shop lip & cheek stain in Bright Peony. I applied a tiny amount on the centre on my lips and used my finger to dab it out. It adds a lovely natural colour. You can also use it on cheeks – just make sure you blend it before it has time to set! I finished it off with L’Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss*
By the end I think I looked more awake and not lacking sleep. You can check out the video below if you fancy catching up, it’s been a while since I’ve a Chit Chat Get Ready With Me style video. It was fun explaining the products while I filling you in on the latest with everything going on!
