Hello lovelies! Do you ever have those mornings where you just can't be bothered to do your full makeup routine, but don't want to leave the house with a completely naked face? Well that was me this morning. The extra 20 minutes of snoozing in bed just seemed so much more appealing at the time, than getting up to get ready. So, I thought today I would share with you my must-have products that I use on days like today where I don't necessarily want anyone to notice I'm wearing makeup but I just want to look like a fresher, more awake version of myself.
1. Good Coverage, Opaque Concealer
This is really a must for me. Even if I'm not wearing any foundation I like to use this to cover the shadows under my eyes and the broken capillaries/ redness around my nose (hate that!)

2. Blotting Powder
I get shiny through my t-zone during the day, so I like to dust this on to keep things matte.
MAC Blotting Powder- Medium
3. Pink or Peach Blush
A bit of blush can do wonders for brightening up your face & skin tone.
Benefit Cosmetics Boxed Powder- Bella Bamba
4. Medium Brown Eyeliner
If I'm really feeling lazy or in a huge hurry, I will skip this step, but I try not to. I have light green eyes and I feel that my eyes need a little bit of defining otherwise I can tend to look washed out. Ladies with darker colored eyes could probably skip this step. I just lightly run the pencil along my upper lash line & smudge gently with a fingertip.
NARS Larger than Life Eyeliner- Via Appia
5. Volumizing Mascara
If I was only allowed one makeup product to wear the rest of my life, it would have to be mascara. I feel that this makes a huge difference in defining & lifting your eyes, creating balance to the face & just making you look more all-around girly & pretty.
Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara- Noir (Sample)
6. Light Pink/ Nude Lip Balm
Putting a light balm or lip gloss on will help your lips from looking chapped. Also, the added sheen from the product makes your lips look more plush!
Korres Lip Butter- Jasmine
I should mention that it took me no longer than 3-5 mins to apply these products. Also, I only used one face brush that I carry around with me in my everyday makeup bag.
So there you have it, my 'no-makeup' makeup look must-haves! Let me know what products you love to use on your no-makeup days!
Thanks for reading!
Lots of Love,
