Summer Made a Pit Stop...

... and this is what I wore on my face.
Cast your mind back to last week, it was hot and sunny, and well, hot! I was going out but could not muster up the energy to don a full face of make up. I had wanted to try the Origins Vita Zing for so long, mainly for days like this, where you don't want to wear a full face of make-up but can't not put anything on. However after testing it out on my hand, could not stomach paying the full price of it, so got a bit D.I.Y and just mixed a smidge of foundation with a moisturiser for a super light, barely there make-up look!



Base:
Garnier Cream with Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
Rimmel True Match Concealer

Eyes:
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
Max Factor High Definiton Mascara

Cheeks:
MAC Lovejoy

Lips:
Carmex




What do you wear on the can't be bothered but can't bare all days?
Please say I'm not the only one who feels that way?

  1. That is a good idea! I use garnier BB cream :) it's light and doesn't make you feel like you have tons of layers on.

      The garnier one is too dark for me unfortunately :(

  2. Looks great on you :) I had a sample of the wake me up foundation, it was too dark for me but I loved the feel of it x

  3. This looks really nice and fresh for summer :) I usually just skip foundation altogether and pop on a bit of concealer (and mascara/brows/blush). On the hunt for a decent BB cream though!

  4. Wish my face looked that good with minimal makeup! :) Great idea to mix moisturiser and foundation for natural and lightweight coverage.

  6. I love the bare faced look...especially during the summer! I usually just pop on some BB cream, blusher and a quick lick of mascara and I'm ready to go :)
