My Go-To Look For University/Work.

Tuesday, February 07, 2017
I never like to go too full on with my makeup day-to-day, especially if I'm heading to university or work. I find I don't always have the time to do a full face so there are a few things in particular I like to use which save time and are often multipurpose and don't have me reaching for a million and one products...

This Works Perfect Look Skin Miracle, £28: This is the perfect product to apply under your foundation to give your skin a boost in colour and glow. It's a bonze-y toned cream which creates such a beautiful canvas for makeup. My skin always look so much more even, dewy and perfected. It's a great pick-me-up when you're rushing in the mornings.

Charlotte Tilbury Miracle Eye Wand, £29: I like to grab products which have a couple of different uses, this eye wand from CT contains an eye serum and a brightening concealer, perfect! The serum helps to tighten under the eyes and add hydration, whilst the peachy toned concealer brightens and hides any discolouration. I love the formula of this, super hydrating and perfect for under the eyes!

Hourglass Ambient Palette in Surreal Light, £69: This has everything you need to finish off your base makeup. The powder in here is beautiful for setting the makeup without looking cakey and too flat. It also has a lovely bronzer shade which is gorgeous under the cheekbones, across the forehead and down the nose to add a bronze glow to the skin. The two blushes are also very wearable and look amazing mixed together. There is a brighter pink shade which brightens up the completion, and a more mauve toned pink, which I've loved over the winter months. We can't forget about highlight either, and this palette has a really pretty golden/champagne shimmery shade which is perfect on the tops of the cheekbones. I find highlighter really finishes off the face nicely and I feel so much more confident once I have a good glow going on.

Benefit Gimme Brow, £20: I hardly do anything to my brows these days. A bit of gel and I'm good to go! The Benefit Gimme Brow is my all time fave as the tiny wand makes it so easy to add definition to the brows. It gives your brows an added boost of volume as well as setting them in place all day long.

NARS Kalahari Eyeshadow Duo, £25: Picking up a good eyeshadow duo will be key for creating a well defined eye in seconds. This one from NARS contains a shimmery bronze-y taupe shade, perfect for over the lid and the lower lash line, as well as a medium toned matte warm brown which is great for the crease. You don't have to create a crazy smokey eye, but having a couple of go-to shades is so helpful in the mornings as I know exactly what I want to reach for.

MAX Factor Masterpiece Mascara, £9.99: I tend to grab any mascara which is open, at the moment it's been this one from MAX Factor which gives your lashes loads of definition and length. It's a rubber wand that grabs every lash giving you a lovely butterfly affect to the lashes. You can never go wrong with a good drugstore mascara and MAX Factor always have some lovely ones on offer.
