My Everyday, 'No Makeup' Makeup Products

Sometimes it's nice to sit down and take your time applying makeup, putting effort into every little detail and perfecting a marvellously even winged eyeliner. On the other hand, it's also sometimes necessary to apply your makeup in a matter of fact fashion, no fussing about and no fiddling with silly winged liners. Or maybe you're just not in the mood to wear a lot of makeup. Whatever the reason, I'm here to show you the products I use on my face when I'm either not in the mood for wearing a lot of makeup or just simply don't have the time! You're welcome :)

1. Nars Creamy Concealer (I find blending with a beauty blender gives the best results)
2. Bare Minerals Original Powder Foundation
3. Hoola Bronzer by Benefit 
4. Illamasqua Blush in 'Ambition'
5. MAC Highlighter in 'Soft & Gentle'
6. Gimme Brow, Brow Gel in 'Medium/Deep' by Benefit 
6. Tweezerman Eyelash Curler
7. Tarte 'Lights Camera Lashes' Mascara 
8. Nyx Butter Gloss in 'Creme Brûlée' 
9. Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray (I don't always use this) 

Now when I said this is quite a natural look, I meant it. If it's too minimalist you can obviously add more products to your face but this will just give you an idea. It may look like a lot of products in the picture but it's really not at all. I don't apply much of each product either, only the bare minimum to even out my skin tone and hide my under eye bags!  

Excuse the bushy brows! I'm currently in the painful process of growing them out until they're ready to be re-shaped.

The result is a very natural but clean and fresh look that lasts all day long. The great thing about using a concealer that doesn't crease and a powder for foundation is that my face doesn't melt away or change throughout the day, I can promise you it is much more long-wearing than a liquid foundation (surprising, I know!). Occasionally I mix up my lip products, but this is just what I've been wearing a lot lately.
