The Sunday Face

Minimal makeup is like my middle name. Similarly, maven of all sheer bases, dewy skin, and 'my lips' pout products, my daily makeup slap on may look pretty identical to the outside world, but I can tell a difference (and that's all that matters right?) Now, it's a Sunday, and my minimal war paint just got a lot simpler....yes, it's possible. And now, from bed with a side carafe of coffee, I bring to you the Sunday face - a simple match up of quick, go getter products for 'I'm on my way to breakfast at a cafe and I'm hungry' sort of times or when I'm feeling lazy...quelle surprise.


After I've quickly slapped on my morning skincare routine (and I mean slap), complimented by a final touch of Origins Vitazing, I rush to the vanity for the rest of the mash up.
The tired eyes and bad skin conditions are quickly camoflauged with a dose (a hefty, hefty dose) if the Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Concealer. The dual action peachy tint and liquidy, light formula means it works wonders under the eyes and on general areas around the face. Next, another hefty dose of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light means that I'll be oil shine free all day, but there's better news - packed on, it never looks cakey, but blurs imperfections, redness, and other skin woes, all while leaving a subtle 'my skin is good and glowy' sort of look. Can you tell I like this stuff?

Now, my skin is pasty as medicinal gauze, so a light dusting of NARS Laguna Bronzer and my skin looks surprisingly sun kissed, but still nearly indentical to the rest of my body...score! In all honesty, I've been addicted to this stuff for the past month - reaching for it everyday (and you though that just because this was a simple makeup look that I was going to leave it out?)

Since the rest of the makeup has looked generally subtle, I loaded up with a few coats of the LancĂ´me Hypnose Mascara. The results give a natural, doll lashes sort of look, with no clumping of caking in sight. On the lips, I continued the growing subtle theme with a scoop of the Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine. A moisturizing formula (comparable to the Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm *gasp*) is surpisingly gorgeous in both the scent (like cupcakes) and tint department (a subtle nude).

 So there you have it - the Sunday, chill worthy makeup that will be rocking my face for the rest of the day. Now, this must be our goodbye, as I'm craving more waffles and am looking intently upon a trip to Sephora...there's no stopping me now.

  1. Every single product you've used sounds amazing, in particular the Ambient Lighting powder. Still unsure about whether to buy Laguna as it's a little bit too orange for my pale skin, any other bronzer recommendations? xx

    1. Haha! I'm glad I can finally have that effect on other people, as it always seems like I'm the victim. The powder is great, yet I don't think that one with oily skin would get on. Laguna is the only bronzer I've tried, but I've heard the Jouer one is good for not looking too orangy, as is Benefit Hoola, and Clarins bronzing duo. Hope this helps!

  2. I like to keep my makeup minimal, or just go for no makeup at all on the weekends when the most exciting thing I'm going to do is watch marathons of my favorite tv shows..I've been hearing wonderful things about the origins concealer so I might check it out! xx

  6. I like the Korres Lip Butters as well. I have them in Quince and Plum.
    I'm interested in the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders but the price tag is little freaky. Maybe I'll wait for a coupon at Sephora first.

    1. The powders are great, but if you're looking for oil control, these are not the ones. It's good to think about things first!
