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:

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

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

-MUA Lipstick (Shade 2)


  1. Lovely post! Simple is the way to go for every day, definitely. I am also a black eyeliner fan! X

    Love this look, allot of people should start doing make-up like this rather than caking themselves in it(:
