Quick and Easy Make Up Look

We’ve all been in the situation where you have hardly any time to get ready and you want to look like you’ve made an effort and look your best. I recently popped together a simple but effective make up look that should mean you’re ready in no time at all and it even includes a soft and subtle smokey eye!

The make up look is pretty simple but still effective! It’s uses only a few make up products – many of which you’ll probably have in your everyday make up bag.

I started by taking my HangoverX primer by TwoFaced. I only use a small amount as I find if I use too much it rubs off of my face when I’m applying my foundation!

For my foundation I used my NARS Sheer Glow in Deuville. This foundation is perfect for my skin type! I’ve never had a problem with it sticking to dry patches or looking dry throughout the day.

I then moved onto contour and bronzer and for this I used Benefit’s Hoola. This has been a go to for me for so many years now. I often use it as my crease shade during the week for a minimal look!

For highlight I used MAC’s soft and gentle which is so good! I purchased this back in the summer and haven’t been without it since. I wish I’d have tried this sooner! I also use this under my brow bone and on the inner corners of my eyes.

I used a Revolution bakes blush but unfortunately the shade has rubbed off of the packaging.

For brows I used Fleur De Force’s eyebrow pencil in the shade ‘dark’. I get my eyebrows threaded which makes filling them in fairly quick and easy. I then set them with Maybeline’s Brow Drama brow fixer.

For my eyes I used my Tarte In Bloom palette which is one of my favourite ever palettes. I took the shade Flower Child across the whole of my lid. I then took Smarty Pants through my crease and Jetsetter on the outer of my eye. I then took the shade Funny Girl on the centre of my lid.

Once I was happy with the blending of the shades I took my Kat Von D liquid line and lined my lids. One of my goals from the past year was to nail wing liner and I can’t say I’ve completely mastered it but I’ve definitely embraced it more and challenged myself. Of course, if you’re in a super rush I would 100% recommend skipping the wing but lining is so straight forward.

I then went in with my mascara and used the Tarte Lights Camera Action. This has quickly become one of my favourite mascaras along with some in the Revlon range.

I finished up with a swipe of MAC’s Brave. Of course, if this is a festive look a swipe of red lipstick would look great.
