L-R: Makeup Academy Pro-Base Conceal & Brighten Kit in Porcelain Beige, Maybelline 'The Rocket' Volumise Mascara in Black, Makeup Academy BB Cream in Shade 1 Light, Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent, Figs & Rouge Peppermint & Tea Tree Lip Balm.
/ I start off by applying a two pence sized amount of the Makeup Academy BB cream all over my face using my fingers just a few minuets after moisturising, as I find it applies & looks better on the skin when doing so (after a lot of trial & error!) making sure to really buff it into the skin so that you don't get any weird lines & streaks!
// Next I take the peachier colour in my Makeup Academy Conceal & Brighten kit & apply it with my ring finger underneath my eyes, to conceal my under eye circles using a patting motion. & then taking the middle concealer colour, I conceal any acne, redness & acne scarring that is still visible. The last thing I use from this kit is the pinky highlighter which again I apply with my ring finger to the tops of my cheekbones, which not only adds a nice glow to my face, but because it's a pinky colour it adds a little colour to my cheeks too.
/// Of course don't forget to powder, as it sets your whole 'skin work' & makes it last keeping oiliness at bay. Rimmel's Stay Matte powder has been one of my teenhood staples for years & I have recently gone back to it, as it is such a good product for drugstore/value for money. I apply it with my Mac Powder Brush on my T-zone (Forehead, Nose & Chin) using a light hand.
//// Mascara is the one piece of makeup that I feel adds a huge difference to the way I look as it makes me look awake & alert, so even for the most simplest look it is an essential. 'The Rocket' by Maybelline is my favourite mascara at the moment (I still love my Covergirl Lashblast though!) as it adds so much length to my lashes & the way it separates my lashes makes it look so natural! Make sure to brush off the excess product onto the opening of the tube, as adding too much product will look like you have spider lashes & I apply two coats.
///// Finally I finish off my Sunday look with a generous amount of my favourite lip balm. The Figs & Rouge lip balm is so moisturising & calming on the lips, that it is perfect for a relaxed Sunday.
////// Hair wise I like to keep it simple by either putting it up in a topknot or (like I have today) wear it in a messy, high ponytail. I always like to keep my hair off my face on the weekend, just so my face has a day off from my hair being near my face & because it ties in well with a casual/relaxed look I am looking for.
