Hi guys, Some days you don’t want to wear loads of makeup but you still want something the quintessential no makeup makeup days. The thing is often with stuff like this the looks I’ve seen online are so many steps and near enough matching my full face of make up. This is super simple and is what I have being wearing most days as it is just effortless.
It is important to start with a strong base at the moment I am really loving the Rimmel London Fix and Perfect Pro Primer in 002, which is more of a creamy moisturizing primer opposed to a silicon based primer. It just a hydrating primer which is a perfect base and just begins the makeup look of right. I then use the Rimmel London 9-in-1 BB Cream in Very Light, which is a really good light base and perfect for summer. You can read my full opinion on the bb cream in my review here. Rounding up a perfect face is another Rimmel product, I don’t think I really realised it before but Rimmel is definitely my go to drug store brand for base products. So for concealer I use the do it all Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory, it is slightly more of a brightening concealer and just airbrushes your face nicely.
So after I have a strong base I just use 3 more simple products to achieve an effortless make up look, and I’ll show you how I mix it up. I don’t really need powder so I tend to skip it but I like to add a little bit more dimension to my face with a touch of blush, as I tend to opt for blush over bronzer. However, as my blush is part of the Sleek Face Form Palette in Light set I could probably do full thing and it would still count as 6 products but all I want is a simple look. The blush in this packet is very summery as it adds a slight flush of colour but with the shimmer it adds that slight glow which is beautiful.
Then it is just the finishing touches starting with a simple coat of mascara, nothing much as you don’t want over done lashes. I am loving the primark own brand P.S. Love Lift and Curl Mascara which I feel is on par with the Benefit Roller Lash but so much cheaper, I highly recommend trying it out. Then to finish it off I just use some lip balm or in this case lip butter. I am really loving The Body Shop Mango Lip Butter as it smells absolutely amazing and feels great of the lips. Occasionally I will mix it up with a a different lip colour but it depends what I feel like really.
So what is your 5 (6) product face? Do you have a simple no make look which seems like it has a lot less than the no makeup looks created by gurus, let me know what your favourite base colours are.
