Ever had one of those days when you just don’t want to function and your bed is the perfect place to be? Well, that’s my entire life. However, with or without makeup, those errands ain’t gonna run themselves.
This Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hour Leather Effect in Vintage Plum is a recent purchase, inspired by the lovely Anna, who mentioned it in a video a while ago.
A rich mauvey shade, this cream eye shadow is incredibly easy to just slather on across the lid and call it a day. I used my fingertips to apply it, then carefully took my time to blend it with a MAC 217 – meaning 4-5 seconds, as it is a dream to work with.
Just a little note, though: I would suggest doing one eye at a time, since it dries pretty fast and can lead to some weird patchy areas that won’t budge. Next, I added my trusty L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara and that was it! A fast and easy solution for days when you can’t be bothered to do a full on makeup look, but still want to be presentable.
For the rest of my face I applied Rimmel’s Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation in 100 Ivory (I officially reached the fairest colour of them all), concealed my dark circles and any discoloration with *suprise, suprise* Collection Lasting Perfection in 1 Fair, dusted some of the Rimmel Stay Matter Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent and followed by the H&M Bronzer. My brows are also filled in with the good ol’ Dark Brown shade from the Sephora Cocktail On The Beach Palette. And, weirdly enough, I don’t have anything on my lips!
And this concludes my face for the day! Pretty impressed with myself for managing to get out of bed and be productive. *pats self on back*
What do you usually do on days like this? Do you prefer a bare face or a minimal look?
