FOTD: Effortless.

I'm not the kind of girl who spends hours in the morning getting ready, I much prefer to keep it simple unless it is for a special occasion. This is the sort of makeup I wear on an every day basis; no eye shadow, just winged black eyeliner (sometimes I even skip this step), and a bit of colour on my lips that I switch around depending on how I feel that day, though I have been loving this dark fuschia colour this winter. I would usually just use a bit of concealer on my spots and under my eyes, but on a particularly bad skin day (like today) I like to get out my Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector for that extra little bit of coverage. This makeup routine usually takes me no more than fifteen minutes to do, meaning I can spend longer in bed!  :)


Makeup I used:

Face
-Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream (Light)
-Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (Light)
-Rimmel London Powder Blush (Smoked Oyster)

Eyes
-Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (Black)
-Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara (Black)

Lips
-MUA Lipstick (Shade 2)
