Minimal Make Up for camping; a four product FOTD!

A: I went camping this weekend, and thankfully I was going through a couple of good skin days so I didn’t feel the need to faff about with too much make up so I thought I’d take some photos and show you the finished look! 

  

For the base, I used Instablur from The Body Shop – which is amazing for blurring pores and providing a long lasting base. I then used Rimmel’s Radiance BB cream in very light which I reviewed here if you fancy knowing more about it. After a quick coat of mascara and using some matte brown shadow in my brows and setting them with my Brow Drama I had a finished look. My hair looked only a little crazy because I had plaited it the night before so it had lots of volume and just needed a good brush through in the morning. I was really happy with this look, it didn’t need any upkeep during the day but still lasted.

A FOTD from Annie

A: My boyfriend and I were away a few weeks ago visiting his family, and we were having a party on the Saturday night – I got the rare chance to spend some time on my make up which is always a treat and I was quite pleased with the outcome, I’m still playing with eyeshadows (click here for my last eyeshadow look) so please bear with me! Here’s the finished look…

Kiko Colour Sphere Shadow in 26

Avon Mega Effects Liquid Liner in Black

The Balm Cosmetics Bodybuilder Mascara

Make up Revolution Triple Baked Blusher in Peachy Keen

Avon Classic Neutral palette (brows!)

ELF Matte Lip Colour in Praline

Elizabeth Arden Lipgloss in Caramel

2015/01/img_5313.png This is a super easy look to create, and other than my usual daily make up, I didn’t have much packing space so didn’t have room for a massive eyeshadow palette. But this Kiko shadow is perfect for building up colour and definition as it can be used dry or wet to create different looks. It’s the only shadow I packed but proved to work very well! I’m also really getting into lip glosses – a year ago, I only wore matte lipsticks – but since finding an old gloss which has a beautiful gold shimmer, I’ve been applying it on top of every lipstick and I think it looks so lovely! Plus it’s makes the upkeep of pigmented lip colours so much easier! And here’s a photo of me and my beautiful niece to show you how well my make up lasted!
