As it’s still not really spring yet where we live (who has decided that 10°C in May is okay?) I like to bring a bit of warmth and sun into my makeup. And finally look a bit tanned… In the mornings I don’t have that much time so I try to minimize the number of products I use and simplify on a day to day basis where needed.
To prime I use my trusty
to minimize visible pores around my nose, my chin and my forehead. As a base I then use the TheBodyShop Tea Tree Primer . This cream looks white at first, but then turns skin-coloured whilst blending it into my skin with either a beauty blender or the TheBodyShop All-In-One BB Cream . Always remember to bring your makeup down your neck so you’re not left with a makeup-line along your chin. To bring some bronze glow into my face I then apply the Real Techniques Buffing Brush (not really a primer, it’s a cream bronzer!) to my temples and in a sort of 3-shape across my cheekbones and my jaw-line using the Bourjois Bronzing Primer . For even more glow I then use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush as a blush and highlighter. Soap & Glory Wonderbronze
I then fill any gaps in my brows with the and set them in place with the Kiko Eyebrow Sculpt Automatic Pencil in Deep Brunettes . As mascara I currently enjoy the Alverde Clear Brow Gel . And on days when I feel like it I switch up my lip balm for the Lombagine Amazing Lash Mascara which is extremely moisturizing and fades away evenly (so no worries about being left with a circle of lipstick after a few hours…).
