The Lazy Edit

Friday, 15 January 2016

There are days where one can not be bothered to apply a full face of makeup, one of those days was yesterday for me where I just applied foundation and concealer. For today's post, I thought I'd share the 3 ways that I wear makeup on days that I feel lazy or unbelievably tired.

The Foundation Edit:

There are days where I only like to wear face makeup. For those days like this, I use the Clinique Even Better Foundation with the smallest pump. I apply this all over my face with a damp beauty blender ensuring that it is blending everywhere especially on my neck. After the foundation, I use the LA Girl Concealer to conceal the under eye circles, chin, cupids bow, down the bridge of my nose and above my eyebrows. If my under eye circles are exceptionally bad, I like to pack a lot of concealer on to hid everything away. To set my face, I apply the MAC Pressed Blot Powder, I love the finish it has on my skin and doesn't make me look to dry as I don't apply a lot on. For my eyebrows, I use the Sleek Brow Stylist which I love. That's it, simple and fast on average this takes me less than 10 minutes to do.

The Eyeliner and Concealer Edit:

For these days, I only apply liquid liner, mascara and concealer. I bet you're like what? For my winged liner, I use the MUA Matte Black Liquid Liner. To coat my lashes, I use the Clinique High Impact Mascara (best mascara ever, in my opinion). Moving on to the face, I put concealer on the usual parts that I do on my face. Once you spend time blending in your concealer it will look better than you thought. Obviously, set the concealer the usual way you'll do it and you'll look normal. Well for me I do. Haha.

The Eyeshadow and BB Cream Edit:

BB Cream is the best thing ever. To apply this on my face, I use the Real Techniques Buffing Brush all over my face or sometimes the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge. Now, depending on my mood depends on which palette or what makeup look I intend on going for. But usually, I stick to two shades - one all over my lid and another for the inner corner. The two palettes I usually go for is the ELF Limited Edition and Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette.
