I love natural look make up, mainly because it is quick and easy, but also because it requires the bare minimum.
For today’s make up look, I used Clinique’s superprimer and beyond perfecting foundation and concealer for the base. This is such a great combination because it really lifts and lightens, which I definitely need from time to time. I then swept over my cheekbones with Clinique’s true bronze pressed powder bronzer and added a touch of a Rimmel powder blush on the apples of my cheeks. I kept the eyes simple with light earthy eyeshadow, a natural eyeliner style and a flick of mascara. Then I used Rimmel’s professional eyebrow pencil and finished off the look with a sweep of a Maybelline lipgloss. It took me about ten minutes and didn’t exactly take a lot of concentration, which came in handy considering the sprogs had an intense interest in my makeup box this morning.
Clinque – True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer (£24:50)
Now, I’m going to take a minute to talk about Clinique’s true bronze, pressed power bronzer. This was an accidental buy when I was topping up my foundation (sorry Mr. C). I do already have a perfectly okay bronzer (as Mr. C kept reminding me), but this one looked so new and crisp, so I added it to the basket. So this morning I decided to try it out and now it is on my must have list. There is nothing worse than wearing heavy makeup that doesn’t let you skin breathe, so I love how light this bronzer is. It is fantastic to wear for a natural look, but it very easy to build it up as well. When I can’t be bothered with contouring, I just build it up in the hollows of my cheekbones and it works a treat.
