Happy New Years day!! If you are like me that you must be very very tired (or for some very hungover) therefore I thought I would show you all my go to products for when I need to look like I've had sleep and look more human. I've just celebrated round my friends but got barely any sleep and now I'm off for lunch and cinema with my cousin. So I just go for an over the top dewy look, I hope you can take some tips from this and enjoy reading!
I know that most of you will be thinking that priming my face is a little over the top just for the morning after but using an light primer which illuminates your face makes all the difference. I have chosen the Loreal Lumi Magique primer and it gives such an amazing glow to the face.
Now I would also recommend using a light foundation with gives a dewy effect or a tinted moisturiser. I use the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation as it gives an anti-fatigue effect (perfect) and a radiant glow. I apply this with my RT sponge to ensure that it is a light coverage so I don't look cakey.
If you are like me then you get some real bad bags!! To cover these I am using my trusting YSL Touche Elat to brighten underneath my eyes. It contains micro shimmer particles that reflect light waking you up immediately. The texture is so light and easy to blend as well as not creasing at all under the eye.
Lord & Berry where would I be without you on those days I look like a zombie! It's a creamy highlight which really brightens your face and I love to use for my cheekbones and brow bone.
Another firm favourite is of course the MUA powder highlight which I recommend to everyone and anyone these days! It's a super cute pinky champagne highlighting powder which gives your face a pretty and healthy looking glow that I apply to my cheekbones and forehead (bizzarely)
I don't want to go over the top with my bronzing therefore I opt for a subtle bronzer which is the Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder which comes with a highlight also. This is the perfect bronzer for us pale people as it is not orange toned, its just matte and very buildable adding that perfect warmth to your face.
I don't go over the top with mascara either so I just grab my Topshop Long Lash mascara which provides length to my lashes. I feel that putting even the slighest amount of mascara on makes a difference.
Something natural for the lips which is my Clarins Lip Perfector which gives a slight shine and colour to the lips.
Short but sweet! I didn't want to ramble too much especially with those of you reading today who may be feeling a bit worse for wear! What are your crucial products to use when you aren't feeling too good or tired? Comment below!
Happy new year! Lots and lots of love!
