Back to Basics: FOTD


This time last year, I had only just found out about Youtube, and what contouring, highlighting and all that sha-bang was. So over the following months I grabbed some bronzers, some highlighters and a multitude of colours, and added about 10 minutes to the time it took me to get ready in the morning. The other week, however, I decided it was time to just take it back to basics, and see how I felt about that look.


Base:

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch
Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer

Eyes:
MAC Painterly
Max Factor High Definition Mascara

Cheeks:
Nars Multiple in Portofino

Lips:
Revlon Berry Smoothie





I was really taken aback how much using the right products, even in my old basic way, still looks so much better than it did last year, and I also really like this look, just as much as when I use a million different products!

Do you prefer a full face, or barely there make up?

  1. I personally always feel better with a bit of eyeshadow and some liner, and a full face of makeup tends to accompany the two for me. But you really pull off the barely there makeup look nicely! I have just never been able to perfect it. xx

  2. You look so beautiful in these pictures, it definitely works for you to not use looooads of products (even though that works too!) xxxx

  3. Sometimes simple is best! I find that I take quite a bit longer to do my face in the mornings than when I first started becoming interested in makeup. I'm not sure if I'd go back to my routine then - I barely used foundation and only had a single pencil eyeliner and mascara :p

  5. You look gorgeous! I especially like how your eye come out in this look. I also generally prefer less makeup on a daily basis. xx
