I almost forgot what it feels like to wear 1 pump of foundation! Let me tell you, feels like nothing. And that's the best feeling. Without realizing, I've been putting on tons & tons of makeup over the past year or so. But Summer rolled on and I want as less product on my face as possible. Here's my Summer "no makeup" make up look!
from drab to fab
BASE: ILLUMINATING PRIMER + HIGH COVERAGE FOUNDATION
After moisturizing, I prime using this illuminating L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer. When I have plump and bright canvas, I move onto foundation. I mix one pump my one and only True Match with one pump of the mentioned primer. It gives even more brightness without sheering out any coverage of the foundation. I pay extra attention to blending the product on my jawline/neck and my hairline as I have a tan to match!
Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder sets my foundation for the day. It gives a very natural skin-like finish, not too matte. Most of the time, I dust it lightly using a soft duo fibre brush. But it's actually a quite pigmented powder, so if I end up wanting a fuller coverage, I use a sponge to press the product into my skin which gives me this flawless finish without unnatural!
EYESHADOWS IN MY BROWS, YES
Ugh, I have 99 problems and my brows are all of them. However, with these two products I manage to get a semi-decent and somewhat socially acceptable brow. First off, I define and fill in my brows using Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in 'permanent taupe'. It's THE color for your brows, trust me. Has a cold undertone and is a very ashy taupe. I follow it up by using another cold toned brown eyeshadow by Makeup Revolution, I only use it on the tail of the brow. I feel like this is where the brow should be the darkest and most defined, ya kno.
BROWN MASCARA FOR DAYS
Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara in 'black brown' is my new favorite! It doesn't look as heavy as black mascara, this one makes it seem like you have naturally long and curled lashes. And since it's waterproof it holds the curl like no other mascara I've tried! It's very buildable as well. LOVE. IT. SO MUCH.
Bourjois Délice de Poudre Duo is my vital finishing touch. I don't contour, just carelessly swirl this bronzer around my cheek area and temples. Even the tiniest bit adds dimension to my face so it doesn't look flat, who'd want that?!
And that's all there is to it! A fuss-free summery look which is as bare as I get. Need something to match my tan after all!
Happy Summerin' yall,
