My Weekend Makeup


As you may know from My Winter Makeup | Work Edition post that I love to put my make up on in the morning however I know that it is good to have make up free days to let your skin breathe and relax. Over the weekend I tend to avoid wearing make up during the day but if I am doing something and just want a little "something-something" this is what I use to achieve a natural fresh make up look.

I have recently discovered BB creams and so far it is the best replacement for foundation because it is super light weight, provides a little coverage to even out the skin tone and super easy to apply. I have only tried two BB creams so far- the L'Oreal Nude Magique BB cream (which is nice but didn't stay on the skin for very long) and my new favourite Rimmel BB Cream Matte in the shade light. For a BB this one has a lot of coverage which I love because I have a lot of pigmentation on my skin. I enjoy the matte finish as it is not a cakey finish but it does help to combat any shine. To add a little colour on my cheeks (but still keep things very natural) I use my fingers to pat in the Rimmel Stay Blushed in sun kissed cherry.

For the eyes, cream eyeshadows are perfect for just a wash of colour. My favourite is the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and on Bronze which is a popular favourite around the blogging community. They last a long time on the lids and I bought mine about two years ago and it still hasn't dried up so it is definitely worth the money! Then a put on a few coats of Clinique High Impact Mascara which gives very fluttery, soft lashes that are very natural looking. Then to finish off the look I like to wear Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Balm in super strawberry because it that gives a lovely tinted berry colour to the lips without the colour looking overwhelming.
