the au naturel make up look

Despite being a complete beauty addict I rarely ever wear full make up and always find myself opting for a cheated natural look, I say cheated because I do spend a fair amount of time on my make up in a morning but with the intention of making it look as effortless as possible. I've been wearing less and less base make up in the summer months too, I rely on my Chanel Vita Lumiere foundation along with a good under eye concealer and that's about it. 

CHANEL VITALUMIERE AQUA FOUNDATION - £31: This has been my staple foundation for many months now, it gives my skin just enough coverage and a radiant glow to match. I haven't used a full coverage foundation in what seems like forever, all thanks to this gem.

PIXI WAKEUP CONCEALER - £7.80: My under eye circles are a nightmare to cover up yet this concealer brightens my whole eye area up really well without drying my skin out or creasing into fine lines. I will write a more in-depth review soon as I absolutely love it.

BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER - £23.50: I've been using this bronzer for what seems like forever (as you can tell from the packaging), it's matte so is perfect for contouring and is the perfect ash brown shade, not a hint of orange in sight.

MAC SO SWEET SO EASY CREMEBLEND BLUSH - £18: Ever since I first bought this a few months ago I've been favouring it over any other blush, it's such a strong colour that you only need to apply a small amount and it instantly freshens up your complexion. If you like a bright, dewy looking blush then check this out.

HD BROWS PALETTE - £20: I must have mentioned this a million times but it's still my favourite brow palette as ever, I always find other products too warm toned whereas I much prefer the ash shades in this.

GUERLAIN MAXI LASH MASCARA - £22: This creates such natural and wispy looking lashes without any clumping, so it's perfect for a daytime look. It's also very buildable and feels light on the lashes without weighing them down, I will review this in full soon too.

COLLECTION FAST STROKE EYELINER - £2.50: I paint on a flicked liner look every day and I'm still loving using this, though I'm starting to find it a tad drying so may switch to a gel liner.

YVES SAINT LAURENT ROUGE VOLUPTE LIPSTICK IN 7 LINGERIE PINK - £23.50: My ultimate favourite lipstick for a natural day look, it's a beautiful soft pink shade which moisturises the lips too.


  1. Same as me, complete makeup addict yet I always try to go for the natural look! Chanel foundation is just great, I love the dewy yet well covered finish!
