My Lazy Day Makeup Routine

After doing "My Full Face Makeup Routine" blog post I really wanted to do a post on the makeup I wear for really lazy days when I won't be doing much or I just can't be bothered. I do this makeup routine so that I have a medium coverage on my skin but it is quick! With both routines I do like to make sure my blemishes and dark circles are covered because I really hate them, although I don't use too much product on my skin!

Well there's no need for me to ramble on so I should probably get to the steps:

First of all, just like in my other makeup routine, I moisturise first and then apply some lip balm.

The next thing I do is apply my foundation with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Normally I would use a BB cream but at the moment I am using L'Oreal's Lumi Magique Foundation because I want to use it up! I am really not a fan of this foundation at all but I don't know why! I just really can't get on with it so I am trying to use it up. But at some point I want to try the L'Oreal True Match Foundation or the L'Oreal Infallible 24hr Foundation so please let me know if you have tried either and your thoughts on them!

Next I just apply a small bit of Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer to dark circles and blemishes. This is my all time favourite concealer!

On lazy days I still like my cheekbones to be sort of prominent so I just bronze up my face a bit with Benefit's Hoola Bronzer (another all time favourite of mine) but I don't bother with blush and highlight.

If you read my full face routine post you will know I use quite a few different mascaras to get coat my lashes but I don't have the effort for that on a lazy day! So all I use is Maybelline The Rocket Mascara in Waterproof! I use a waterproof mascara as this holds the curl best.
 I have absolutely no idea why I look slightly cross-eyed in this picture!

And finally I just add a touch of lip balm and DONE!

And that's it! Nothing complicated, it is a very easy and quick makeup routine!
