Minimal Effort

In general I really enjoy applying my make up it's the only time of the day I really get to just sit on my own and take my time. However there are those days when you don't fancy putting on a whole face full of make up on this is mainly when I am either really tired or feeling really unwell. Which seems to be a lot lately so this is what I have been applying. 

Base wise I have discovered the joy of a primer that actually makes a difference with my skin and the is The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser. This is the only primer that I have used and actually noticed a difference with my skin, I only use it on my t-zone as that is the area that make up doesn't seem to last long on at all. It makes the scars on my chin feel so much smoother so make up glides over them and as it is tea tree it is very soothing on any breakouts. I have gone back to using the YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat as my skin has improved ten fold thanks to the Clarins Exfoliating Toner being back in my grasp. So I haven't needed as much coverage and this just provides the most beautiful glow to the skin if you haven't tried this foundation I suggest picking up a sample it really is lovely. For any concealing needs I have been using the Rimmel Wake me Up concealer for under my eyes and the Bourjois Healthy Mix for any redness in the skin. 

I rely on blush probably a little too much to make me look a little less corpse like and I have gone back to the Stila Convertible Colour in the shade lilium. This is by far my favourite cream blush that I have ever used I really need to pick up another shade from them maybe something more winter appropriate? The Naked Basics palette is something that I loved at first but then I pushed it to the back of my collection so I have been re-discovering it lately. It is really the perfect palette for a natural eye look and lets face it I am hardly adventurous with my eye make up but the shade W.O.S is ideal for everyday. Followed by lashings of the YSL Babydoll mascara which gives my lashes such a pretty fanned out look I really need to pick up another tube of this as mine has reached the end of it's days. Finally a quick dab of the Korres Lip Butter in pomegranate on the lips and I am done for the day. 

What's your minimal make up look?
