I wasn’t getting up to much today so I thought I would cut back on the make up. Normally I just throw on a bit of bb cream and end up looking awful so I decided I would put a bit more effort into creating a simple make up look that suits me.
I apologise in advance for the terrible photos. Its been so dark and gloomy most days here in Ireland
Just before Christmas I was having a rummage through a basket of beauty products in Aldi when I spotted a Lacura BB cream and this woman next to me was like “this bb cream is absolutely amazing you have to buy it!!” so at €4.99 I had to try it! I used my Real Techniques pointed foundation brush to apply it to my face and it glides across the skin so easily. It doesn’t dry in and cake too quickly which I like, it drives me mad when foundations/bb creams dry super quick! I was really impressed with the coverage and the colour, it gave me a really nice glow and it managed to cover the mahooosive spot on my face.
Next I added some Max Factor Creme Puff powder (Truly Fair) using my Real Techniques buffing brush to the areas that were shiny. I didn’t overload my face with powder like I normally do and my face felt super light 🙂
I thought I would try out the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette* that I got from the lovely people at House of Fraser. There is an endless list of looks that can be created with this palette. I think the colours are fab and the ones that I tried out really suited the simple #fotd I was going for.
I started by applying YDK on the entire lid, then in the inner corner of my eye I added Verve and brought it right out around my crease and blended it in with the colour on my lid. I dabbed a some Pistol on the outer corners and blended it inwards. The finishing touch was adding a small bit of Verve under my lower lashes. Finally I added a coat of Yves Rocher Beauty Mascara to open up my eyes a bit.
I was really happy with this look! It would be handy for days when I’m in a rush or if a day isn’t worth of a full face!
How do you keep your #FOTD simple?
P.s stay tuned over the next week for some more looks with the *Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (and much better pictures because I’ll be back in London!!!)
