It’s Monday, you must wake up super-early and the day is full of things to do and duties to accomplish. There’s not enough time for a complex make up routine, but you need to look fresh, radiant and chic all the same. (Needless to say). What’s my solution?
I concentrate on a highlighted base, to give an extra glow, a touch of soft bronzer to add the ‘bonne mine’ effect, I blow away any dark eye shadows and go for a golden-champagne-y, accompanied by black mascara and no eye liners and I end up with a peachy-coral shade on the lips. Below you’ll find the details about the products to achieve the look.
FACE: I start up by applying the primer, which is Chanel Le blanc. I use a foundation brush, not to rub it with the hands. Next, the foundation, in my case Clinique Laserfocus. On the cheeks, instead of the blusher, I prefer to sweep The Body Shop Honey Bronze, which looks so natural and soft.
EYES: to define the brows, I apply Benefit Gimme Brow, which is far easier and faster than the usual brow pencil. On the lids, I apply my YSL Couture mono eyeshadow in the shade #12 Fastes and I end up with a coat of curling mascara with Dior Show Iconic Overcurl in black.
LIPS: to make the lips perfectly symmetrical and let the make up last longer, I frame them with a lip pencil, mine is from Kiko, but whatever pencil you like will be fine. I apply it also on the lips and not only on the outer line. Then I finish the look with a little lip gloss, in this case Guerlain Terra Inca (similar here)
How much time to I need for the whole routine? 10 minutes. Unbelievable? Magic exists.
