When I'm in a hurry, blender sponges are my best friends. A few bounces on my skin are enough to achieve an even, air-brushed finish and blend foundation, concealer and cream blush together for a flawless look. My foundation of choice for easy looks is Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation (10.99£). It lasts well on my skin and it's almost a perfect match for my fair complexion. Its soft yellow undertone is enough to hide redness and little blemishes but if my skin needs an extra unf I add a bit of Bourjois Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer (6.99£) where I need it. It's a neutral based concealer that therefore works well on both imperfections and light dark circles, with the same radiant finish and skincare benefits of the foundation formula.
There's nothing quite like bright pinks to instantly lift and brighten the face. Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow in Liquifuschia (19£) it's an uber bright hot pink blush that might look quite scary in the pan but looks incredible on the skin. The formula blends beautifully and is well pigmented so a little goes a very long way. I can also dab it on my lips with my fingertips for a modern stain-ish effect that last well for a few hours without feeling drying. Another good double duty product for lips and cheeks is the Stila Convertible Color (16£) even if I don't find the formula equally comfortable on the lips.
Well-defined eyebrows are a must to balance out the bright lips and sculpted cheeks. A few strokes of MAC Fling Eye Brows (13£) and I'm good to go. I don't know how many of these I went through but I keep repurchasing it over and over again without fail. It's such a good match for my fair brows and fills in any gaps in a very natural way.
Last but not least I give a nice curl to my lashes and slap on my favourite mascara. A light coat of NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara (18.50£) it's enough to hold the curl all day and both define and volumize my lashes for a barely-there day look.
