Two things inspired me recently. The first was Nuša's post on her Face Of The Day (which you can see here) and the second was a Youtube video by the lovely Gabby (watch it here). After watching that video, I had a sudden craving for the No-Makeup-Makeup, a look I hadn't worn since high school. These days I'm all about the eyeliner and Pepta-bright lips. So I thought I'd change it up a little for today and did a really natural look (is it just me or do these natural makeup looks really require the most products).
I started off with Rimmel's Wake Me Up foundation (which I have in the second lightest shade and it's too dark for me unfortunately), then I changed it up for my cheeks. I used this really old Essence Marble Mania blush, which I love because it adds a beautiful sheen. Then I highlighted with MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle, just along my cheekbones. For my eyes, I just used mascara - Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp to add some length and Essence I <3 Extreme for volume. As far as eyebrows go, instead of using an eyeshadow, I went for a brow pencil by Catrice. And for my lips I struggled a bit, since all of my lip products are statement colors, haha! So I ended up using Dior Iconic lipstick in Diorkiss, and over the top I applied Catrice Lip & Cheek Stain.
I have to say I'm absolutely in love with this look as it's such a nice change to my routine, though I definitely feel a teensy bit naked without my eyeliner and bright lipstick!
