I kind of liked sharing make up looks and ideas with you, that’s why I decided to start doing it more often! Today, I’ll focus on my almost-everyday make up routine, which happens to be a natural, ‘no make up’ look. It takes me 10 mins to apply and stays put throughout the day.
Step 1: Cleansing & hydration
First of all, every morning after I wake up, I wash my face with a cleanser (currently with the Vichy Purete Thermal), followed by applying a light day cream (La Roche-Posay Effaclar K+) and a soothing eye cream (La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra). By now you should know that good make up alone doesn’t create healthy, flawless skin – you should mainly rely on high quality, dermatological beauty products that are suitable for your skin type and avoid using too cheap, unreliable make up.
Step 2: Foundation & contouring
Here’s what I do after – I use my favorite BB cream daily (Vichy Normaderm BB Clear in medium shade) and only use foundation for special occasions and evening looks. That way my skin can ‘breathe’ better and the hydrating effects of the bb cream keep it nourished and glowy. I actually apply all types of foundations and BB creams with an egg sponge (this one is from bornprettystore) not using a brush or my fingers since I found this method the most effective for an even, natural coverage. Then I apply one liquid (Nouba) and one powder brozner (L’Oreal Paris GlamBronze) for contouring and a healthy glow.
Step 3: Brows, eyes & lips
Moving on to the brows, I use Essence’s eyebrow shadows and a Catrice eyeliner brush to fill them in and shape them. Then I curl my lashes and apply mascara (Avon Big&False Lash). Finally, I usually use just regular lipbalm or a natural gloss (L’Oreal Paris GlamShine Balmy Gloss #912 Sin for Peach).
So, that’s it, my everyday, natural make up routine! It’s super fast and easy but looks great!
