A Feature: Sick day makeup


Yes, today should be all about the nails, but instead it's going to be all about the super quick and simple makeup looks for the posts this week, including makeup looks that can be done in 5, 10 and 15 minutes, so don't forget to come back on Wednesday, Friday and at the weekend to check them out. 

Following my current sick bug I haven't exactly been too worried about my makeup being perfect. It's been cut down right to the basics so I thought I would share them with you, just incase you need a quick makeup look to go to when you're not feeling so hot.

Base: I still use a pore perfecting primer and one for the under eye area. But moving straight on to the base I skip foundation and go straight on to concealer. The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is my fave go to face perfector. This stuff has the coverage of a foundation yet still manages to look flawless, even when breakouts have appeared in your run down state. Not cool. Make sure to concentrate on those dark circles. With paler skin than normal (due to not feeling well) dark circles can seem a lot more noticeable and dark. 
To add some colour into my cheeks I apply some of the No7 Cream Blush in Classic Rose to add a light and natural flush to the cheeks to stop myself looking so pale and ghost-like. Plus, a cream blush looks a lot more natural. 

Brows: Not something I'm too bothered about so I just apply some of the Revlon Brow Fantasy Gel to define them a little bit. 

Eyes: I don't like to go for anything crazy and bold as it just doesn't look good when my skin is very pale and dull. So I go with the simple Bourjois Kohl & Contour Eyeliner in Brown on top and bottom lash line and then with a quick curl of the lashes I just need to add a few coats of the Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara to help make my eyes look more open and awake and that's the eyes done. As an extra step you can always add some of the Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Nude on the lower waterline to help remove any redness and tiredness. 

Lips: A tinted lip balm is perfect for a relaxed makeup look so this Figs & Rouge Cherry Blossom ?? Lip Balm is ideal. 

Next week, Monday Mani will be back. But for all posts this week, I'll be showing you some makeup looks that are easy and super quick.

What's your sick day makeup routine?
