Don't Make Me Over...
Earlier this week, I asked on social media if any of you would be interested in tutorials etc. You seemed pretty keen, and I posted a little Instagram story of how I do my every day make up. A lot of you watched (thank you!), so I thought I would post it here so you can look at it properly without the clock ticking!
I will try to put together a timelapse style video of this also to post in the near future so you can see exactly how I apply everything.
I start with a cleansed and moisturised face (I am in the process of putting together a post about the products I use, so stay tuned for that!), and once I've done my hair ready for the day, I start my make up. Don't ask me why I do it like this, I just do...
Now the 'face' is done, I can move on to the eyes, so next up is brows. If you all thought I was naturally ginger, you would sadly be mistaken. I, therefore, need to create the illusion that my hair and eyebrows are actually the same colour... Enter, Bleach London Louder Powder. I'd been looking for the perfect shade of orange to use on my brows forever and then happened upon this on a lunchtime wander around Superdrug. It was like choirs of angels were singing and all was suddenly right with the world. It is very highly pigmented, so, like everything else, a little goes a long way. I apply it using a small angled brush. It's joyous.
Once my lips are on, I feel completely put together (or as put together as one can) and can go to work feeling like I have one less thing to worry about!
So there we have it, my every day make up. It takes about 10-15 minutes to do it all (depending on how distracted I am in the morning either by social media, Duolingo [I'm using it to learn French at the moment] or the dog!) so all pretty straightforward. I hope this was enjoyable and informative, and if anyone gets the band reference from the title, you get a gold star!
Stay Hep, Cats
