If like me you have a busy life filled with work and kids then what you really need is a quick 5 minute makeup look. The key thing for me is good glowing skin with a little somerthing on the eyes and lips. I am looking for no fuss but I want to feel like I look good and of course glowing. Sometimes I don’t even bother with liner if I am off on a shoot. However, there are times I need a quick look that looks like I have made an effort but really it didn’t take much effort at all. In this post I have a few items that really make me glow and look polished.
I already applied my skincare and foundation am currently using Environ and the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation. These combined give my skin a great base before I apply anything else.
Late last year I got a trio of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors this one is Moonstone. Its gorgeous and gives me a lit from within look. Becca have it down when it comes to glowing skin. Apply on your cheek bones, the bridge and tip of your nose, cupids bow and a touch on your chin.
Next up a blush is perfect to add that pop of colour to your complexion and makes everything look so pretty. Mii Cosmetics was created for the every day woman give beautiful looking skin. This one I am using is the Radiant Natural Powder Blush in Inspire. Its got a shimmer to it so not only does it add colour but a touch of highlight as well to your cheeks.
For defining the eyes I am using the Elizabeth Arden High Drama Eyeliner in Espresso. I am lining the top of my lashes and into the crease and then blur the edges with a pencil brush.
For the lashes I am using one of my favs the Elizabeth Arden Standing Ovation Mascara in Intense Black. This adds lots of volume to lashes without any smudging or clumping.
For contouring I am using one of the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Powders in Toasty Beige. The powder can actually be used all over the face but you can also use the darker shades to contour. Thats what I love about makeup it has multi uses. Click on the link to find out more about the product.
To finish up I am using another gloss favourite from Kiko Milano the Ultra HD to add to the overall glow. Its as easy as that. No fuss makeup.
Et voila my finished makeup look quick and easy. You can take your eyeliner and gloss and pop in your bag and reapply when needed. Don’t forget to prime your eyes so that the liner lasts longer.
