You guys have been asking for this for awhile now so I’m finally delivering. Every couple of weeks I’ll be sharing a video tutorial showing how I do my make up, my hair and how I care for my skin. I can say this with certainty because I filmed several episodes in one day and they’re all ready to go. Now I hate to ruin the vibe here but lets make something completely clear before we start, I am not a beauty expert and I make no claims to be. However I am a beauty product consumer and I have opinions so I blog about them. Please also note this is not a sponsored post.
- Foundation with SPF 30+
- Blush Powder
- Eyebrow wax/pencil
- Eye Shadow with Three Shade Gradient
- Tinted Gloss
So there you have it! It’s not done “properly” I haven’t used any primers, consealers, powders, eye liner or lip liner. I didn’t do any contouring and I haven’t waxed or tinted my eyebrows because well, sometimes I forget. I didn’t do any fancy brushwork or use tools you wouldn’t recognise, I wanted to keep it simple and quick. Anyone can do this, even with the products you already have at home.
To celebrate the start of my beauty video series I asked the team of Bene-Babes if they could send me this gorgeous set to give away because I’d fallen head over heels with my own… of course they said yes because they love me! Bella Bamba will suit any skin tone, don’t be afraid of the colour (watermelon pink) as the gold light reflective particles brighten and soften it.
If I only have 2 minutes but I still want the natural look I’ll smear on the foundation, blend with my fingers and put blush on. Never discount blush as it truly awakens the face and adds definition. Flick mascara on the top lashes and slick on the gloss. That’s it, forget the rest but still leave the house feeling like you’ve put some effort in.
