Lazy Everyday Makeup Look

I've never done one of these before, and there is a reason. I'm not very good at makeup. The cat eye is as MUA as I get. But either way, I thought I would show you my lazy makeup routine, which I've been wearing pretty much all Summer. Especially in the warmer months of the year, I don't want to be wearing too much on my face. That too for days where I can't be fussed with liquid eyeliner, contouring or anything else that takes longer than 2 seconds. So in the post I'll run through the products I'm currently using to create an easy natural makeup look. 

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation 

This is definitely a blogger favourite in the community, and all though I love it now- it took my skin a while to get use to it. I have no idea why. But this Summer, Healthy Mix has been my go-to. It's very light on the skin, but still manages to cover up any redness or blotches. It's radiant, and like the name suggests- it leaves a really natural healthy glow. I use the shade Light Vanilla, which I believe is the lightest shade available. 

Sleek Brow Stylist

My eyebrows are quite dark as it is, and other than plucking- I don't tend to give them much attention. I use the Sleek brows stylist to fill in any gaps and just neaten them up. But to be honest, I'm not anal about it. The nib has a thinner edge for outlining and a thicker edge for filling, but I don't find it to be precised at all. This is fine for me, but if you tend to completely transform your eyebrows, I would recommended a eyebrow pen or something with a finer tip. 

Topshop Eyes in Blackboard

On days I'm feeling extra lazy, I don't want to deal with liquid eyeliner. Instead, I use a black eyeshadow to line the eyes with the real techniques accent brush. Using eyeshadow gives a softer look than eyeliner, making it much more subtle and achieves that natural look. The Topshop eyeshadow in Blackboard isn't sold anymore, but any eyeshadow will work. 

Max Factor Wild Mega Volume mascara 

Many months ago I purchased this mascara on a whim, manly because it was cheap (£6.99). I hadn't heard anything about it, but thought I would give it a try. I've used it as my go-to mascara this Summer, and it's averagely good. This is because it's great at flaring all lashes without clumps, leaving them super black. But I don't find it volumnises my lashes as much as it promises. If you are on a budget, this is a great mascara to buy, but I do think there as better mascaras out there. 

Natural Collection Dusky Pink blusher

Peach Melba was a cult blusher for bloggers a few years ago, including me- but recently, I've rediscovered my Natural Collection blushers, and have been using Dusky Pink. It gives a really natural look to my cheeks, as the colour is subtle and light. The blushers are super cheap at £1.99 a pot, which is perfect for my bank account. 

Topshop Lip bullet in Covet

This lip bullet is a creamy formula in covet, which is a nudey orange shade. I really love the colour because it's quite natural and easy to pull off for an everyday look. The only problem I have with it is if my lips are slightly dry- it really shows. I try to stop this from happening by using the Lush lip scrub or using a lip balm before hand. But other than that, the lip product is really nice to wear. 

So there are my essential products for lazy day makeup. What staple products do you use when you want a natural look?
