You’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it again. Here’s the “I WOKE UP LIKE THIS” look.
The overwhelming beauty trend that focuses a lot on natural glowing skin. While most of us isn’t quite as lucky as the models in the magazine, we will need to put in a little more work in blending and brushing with a bit of a highlight, brushed up brows, and applying that soft touch of tint on our face. And honestly, it always look really, really nice. Maybe not creatively inspiring, but looks perfectly pleasant. But how much time have we got everyday for that look?
No time? Fret not.
Here’s my 5 minute no make up, make up that will certainly elevate your confidence with just 6 products:
The foundation is standard (mascara, blush, gloss), but the colors are refreshed.
#1 LA ROCHE POSAY Uvidea XL SPF 50 BB Cream in 01 Light
I start out with LA ROCHE POSAY Uvidea XL SPF 50 BB Cream that unifies complexion while hydrating and covering blemishes. Do note that this is quite watery as compared to our typical BB cream. As for coverage? It’s good enough to even out our skin tone. It also helps in shortening one step aka applying of sunscreen.
To perk me up a little more, I’ll apply inverted triangles under my eyes to conceal my dark circles so that it brightens up my face. Do note that this concealer works better on combi-oily skin.
I got this tint from Shu Uemura awhile back and I love the vibrancy of the colour. It seems really harsh when I first squeeze out but due to it creamy texture, it is easy to blend and the product is buildable. Since we are running short of time, apply just1 layer on the apple of the cheek by smiling in the mirror. This is enough to produce a soft natural flush on our cheeks.
After the skin is done, we can start drawing the brow. I chose the YSL ones as it’s smooth and easy to glide on when used. As it is a dual purpose tool, it’s convenient to use the spiral brush on the other end to tame the brows.
I’ve got really short and sparse lashes, so when a dear friend introduced me to this … I was hooked! When you’ve got no time for false lashes and you still want to have fuller longer lashes… this is it. Dual function mascara, fibre on one side and mascara on the next. It’s just great and convenient!
Dior Addict Lip Glow is a sheer balm that enhances your natural lip color while moisturizing and protecting the skin. It’s lightweight and clear, with a whole bunch of moisturising agent wherever you apply it.
So now you’re done with the whole look and if your skin is on the oilier side, you can set powder with it. If not you’re good to run your errands with the healthy glow on your face.
