Makeup Tutorial: Healthy Glow for Work or School

I’m constantly trying to increase my snooze time in the morning, and that means less time to get ready for the day ahead. That’s when this ‘pick-me-up’ makeup comes in handy because it’s really quick, easy and it gives you a natural healthy glow, perfect for work or school.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (£9.99 – buy it from Boots)

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19 – buy it from Boots)

bareMinerals Tinted Mineral Veil (£17 – buy it from Feelunique)

bareMinerals Warmth All-Over Face Colour (£16.15 – buy it from Feelunique)

MAC Patina and Carbon (£11.50 each – buy it from House of Fraser)

Maybelline Cat Eyes Mascara (£7.99 – buy it from Boots)

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Nude Pink (£4.99 – buy it from Boots)

Because I wanted this look to be natural and healthy looking, I started concealing my under eye circles and some blemishes, then I applied a light layer of foundation only on areas where I have some pigmentation to even out the skin tone. I then applied a very small amount of Mineral Veil on my T-Zone to remove some of the shine; if you apply too much powder, you won’t achieve the healthy glow we’re looking for in this look.

Instead of bronzer and blush, I applied my bareMinerals Warmth to give me a bit of colour and define my face, without looking too made up. If you are quite pale, this will probably be too dark for you, so choose a lighter bronzer instead.

I kept the eyes very simple, focusing on brightening the eyelids to freshen up my complexion. I used Patina all over the lid, a skin toned colour with tiny flecks of shimmer. Because I didn’t want any harshness on the eyes, I lined my upper lash line with black eyeshadow instead of gel or liquid eyeliner. Finally a bit of mascara to separate my eyelashes giving them just the right amount of volume, and a pink toned shimmery lipstick.

Hope you are all having a great Sunday and I’ll see you on my next post!
