Simple Sunday Makeup


I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that Sundays are normally a makeup free day. A day where my makeup brushes get a nice little wash, I get the facemasks out and my skin is allowed to breathe. I'm pretty certain that my skin is thankful for this little day of rest, I can't imagine wearing makeup day in, day out. In general Sundays are spent being lazy, blogging, watching TV and having a nice stroll with my pooch. However on some Sundays, like today, I do a little bit more and want to add a light covering of makeup to my face just so I don't scare people when I go out, haha! I never like wearing a completely full covering of makeup, just something quick and easy that will make me look a little more awake.

Simple Sunday Makeup. Bourjois, MAC, Clinique, Maybelline

I always go with quite a light base when I'm doing a simple makeup look and the Bourjois Healthy Mix is perfect for this. It's light and hydrating but still has the coverage that I crave for my very red skin. Best of all it blends out so easily, making it really quick to apply. I always apply this with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush then go out with my Beauty Blender for a smooth finish that takes literally two minutes! On Sundays I never really bother with concealer but I always set the foundation under my eyes with the Bourjois Java Powder to prevent any creasing and brighten the area. To add a little colour to my cheeks I used the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish is Stereo Rose. It adds a lovely peachy pink tone to the cheeks and also works as a highlighter at the same time. Don't you love a good two in one product!

When I'm doing 'barely there makeup' my eyes are always kept super simple, mainly because I can't be bothered with shadows, blending ect. I do feel a little naked without any sort of shadow on though so I added a light layer on the Benefit Cream Shadow in RSVP and blended it out with my finger. For mascara I fancied trying something new so I grabbed my Clinique High Impact mascara. This was the first time I used it and it's great for a simple makeup look but for anything more it doesn't seem like it will have the power there. It was great for getting right to the corner with the bottom lashes though! I can never be bothered with brows on a Sunday so my go to product is the Maybelline Brow Drama to stop them being unruly and keep them in place!

I don't feel right doing makeup and not adding a hint of lipstick so I chose a lovely muted pink lipstick from the Bourjois Shine Edition range. I don't normally like sheer lipsticks but feel in love with this one as soon as I tried it. It's barely there but finishes off a simple look so well.

What makeup do you opt for on a Sunday?

  5. The Clinique high impact mascara is so good for a light makeup look! When I'm going for a lighter look, I tend to just use a BB cream, lengthening mascara and my brow kit :)
