Quick & Simple Makeup Tutorial

Hi all! Today I'm sharing a quick and simple makeup tutorial for on the go. Feel free to substitute your own favourite products with what I'm using here :)

Firstly, make sure your face is clean and have your hair pinned up! It's way too annoying to have one hand holding your hair and the other one putting on makeup.

Put on your favourite foundation, tinted moisturiser, or BB cream!


Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting Eyeshadow in 02 Glammy Goes To; Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Eyeliner in Black

For a quick and easy look, I like to use a shiny base to give some texture to the eyeshadows that I will be layering on later. This particular brand is super cheap and long lasting. It does not crease at all on my oily eyelids!

I like to also tight line my eyes to create fuller looking lashes. 

With the eyeshadow base

Tight lined!

Moving on to the eyeshadows..

Laura Mercier Palette (no box, no name, sorry!), Blending Brush, Eye Shading Brush

With the colour "Cafe au Lait" use the eye shading brush and pat it all over the lid. Don't worry about it looking messy!!

As long as you keep it approximately the same height it will be fine.

Use colour "Vanilla au Lait", with the fluffy brush, blend out the harsh line. Blend until you can't see a stark finish between the eyeshadow and your eyebrows.

Use the "Sunlit" colour and with the same eye shading brush, pat the colour in the middle of the eye.

This will give your eye some dimension and shine. Good for those who are not into super bling eye makeup.

Here I am using the Dolly Wink and Love Liquid Liner. They are both very similar and very easy to use. 

Begin with the outer part of your eyes then slowly move in. 

Easiest way is to keep your liner horizontal, that way your line is straighter.

With the brown colour liner, draw small "lashes" on your bottom lash line. If you have much more hair than I do (sigh, pathetic asian lashes), please feel free to use a mascara instead of faking it like me. 

Should look like this :D

Too Face Chocolate Soleil Bronzer; Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Fantastic

Apply the blush about 1-2cm below your eyes, contour your face in the hollows below your cheeks and the sides of your nose.

If you feel like your face is too powdery looking, fear not!!

Too powdery???

Use a toner, spring water, MAC Fix +... the list goes on and spray it on your face! Careful not to have a wet spot. Just make sure your face is covered lightly with the spray and pat it away with your hands.

MAC Fix +

To finish off the look, coat your lashes with your favourite mascara and top it up with a lip stick of your choice.

Maybelline Color Whisper in Pin Up Peach

Here I am using this colour because it looks natural and feels like a lip balm.

Once more, complete look!

This shouldn't take too much time, and if you substitute with what you're used to, it will be much faster too.

See you next time! :)
