Super simple makeup look

Hello everyone, I hope you are well!
I haven't done a blogpost in so long because the past few months have been crazy with AS exams and I'm moving house which is extremely exciting. Today i wanted to share a very simple makeup look with you that i wore out today as i needed to pop to the mall to grab some bits and have some lunch so i wanted something that was quick and easy but still pretty. Im not an expert in makeup at all but this was such an easy look that took me about 15 minutes to do so i really wanted to share it with you all. Most of the products i used were drugstore apart from a few of my staple items but there are definitely some cheaper alternatives for these products.

Skin Prep: Before i put on any makeup i washed and moisturised my face then sprayed it with macs fix+, this product does wonders for me because living in Dubai where it is extremely hot my makeup would usually slide straight off but this product stops that as well as acting like a primer.

Skin: I used the Maybelline infallible foundation as I'm very pale at the moment and this is the only foundation that seems to have the lightest shade that matches. I then used the Maybelline age rewind concealer under my eyes and collections lasting perfection concealer on any blemishes. For bronzer i used Benefits Hoola and i lightly brushed that on my temples, cheeks and jawline to give my skin a slight tan. As i was keeping this look simple i didn't use any blush or highlight but i think mac soft and gentle would look great with this look. I finished off the skin with my Rimmel stay matte powder which i lightly dusted on my t-zone and oily areas.

Eyes: For the eyes i used the maybelline colour tattoo in on and on bronze which i placed all over the eyelid then blended out into the crease to get rid of any harsh lines. I then added the Maybelline colour tattoo in eternal gold in the inner corner to brighten my eyes and to add a bit more sparkle to the look. For eyeliner i used macs prunella in my upper and lower lash line and then Loreal's super liner on my lash line and to create a small wing. I then applied a few coats of Benefit Roller lash mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

Eyebrows and lips: For my eyebrows i used soap and glory archery to give them a tiny bit more definition then i set them with Loreal brow gel. As i wanted to keep this look simple i used a Carmex lip balm which gave my lips a slight red tint but not something that was too bright.

Thank you so much for reading
Lots of Love
