It may seem like an obvious concept but Sundays you either get nothing done and just relax or get everything you couldn’t otherwise get done the rest of the week. If your leaving the house do you have to be done up to perfection. A little goes a long way and spring is here so make the most of the sun.
Waste No Time – What I Wore
For my base I want as little as possible so I can get used to these warmer days without getting flustered. So I have been testing out the Smashbox Studio Finish Foundation. I still think it’s a great buildable base I just need an equivalent high-end or a good dupe as the shades just aren’t light enough. I have only a very thin layer on just to even my complexion out. On top I have powdered my t-zone lightly with Macs Studio Fix Plus as it’s great for setting and keeping the oils at bay.As it’s closer to my natural shade when it’s over the Smashbox it also helps to illuminate the center or my face giving more shape to it.
On the lips I just used the Revlon Color Burst Matte Balm in Sultry. I few quick swipes is all it takes and for me it’s an easy touch up if I do need to. Brows are filled with my old faithful Natural Collection eye shadow in Crushed Walnut as they tend to start to lighten at this time of year, by summer they will be blonde. My new fave mascara and a super budget buy at just £3 is the 2True Pro Wow Volumising in Black. It’s easy to apply with the plastic wand and up to now rarely clumps and coats them to a deep black shade. I finished off by adding a hint of colour to my cheeks with the wonderful and cheap Makeup Academy blush in Bon Bon at just £1.
In an effort to waste little time I didn’t even straighten my hair I just let it dry for an hour then finished it with a blow dry. Later in the week I’ll let you know the new products I’ve been using including the brand BlowPro. I’ve already mentioned the BlowPro Faux Dry Shampoo here.
