Hello! It’s been a while since I posted a get ready with me so here we go! On a daily basis I don’t like to wear too much makeup and this is the look that I opt for, it’s quick, easy and looks natural. This could be a great option for those still at school or those who don’t have much time in the morning to spend too much time on their makeup.
1) Starting with a clean canvas, I have washed my face before getting started with one of my favourite moisturisers – the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion + which is great for my dry skin, especially over the winter period. I then go in with a primer – the one I used today is the Max Factor Face Finity Primer and apply the Sleek Barekissed Illuminator in Monaco to help brighten my face over the winter months and give it a glow.
2) For foundation I like to mix the Benefie Hello Flawless and Max Factor Face Finity foundation – I find that the Benefit foundation gives that dewy fresh look whilst the Max Factor provides relatively high coverage. For brightening my under eyes I used the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer, if you’d like to read more about my opinion on this concealer click here!
3) Going in with my Hoola bronzer by Benefit, I contour my cheek bones, around my face and my nose (the photo below is before I blended it in, don’t worry!). Once blended, I apply highlighter to my cheeks and nose using my favourite Sleek highlighting palette, and apply some blusher so give the look a natural warmth.

4) To finish the look I have used my Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in medium brown – it’s important to use an eyebrow shade that is close to the root colour of your hair in order for your brows to look as ‘natural’ as possible. I have then curled my eyelashes and applied the Stila Huge Extreme lash mascara which isn’t too thickening and volumising.
I’ve now just finished drying my hair and have got dressed! My top is from Forever 21.
I hope you enjoyed this post,
