 Can we have a standing ovation for this warm weather we are currently experiencing in England please! It's the perfect weather for when you want to use less products on the face, especially when you want to make an effort, but pull it off like you didn't! You get my drift?

Cue Beyonce (in her voice) 'I woke up like this...' 

I'm channeling my inner Queen Bey in the song 'Flawless'...that unblemished, wide-awake, refreshed look. Now, don't get me wrong, I love a good face "beat" in other words, a perfectly, glam makeup look. But I do love an easier appearance that doesn't require a lot of time and effort. That's why this look works well if you're going into the office or you're simply having a chill day or for warmer days like this! You want to allow your skin to breathe.

So without me waffling on and on, I thought I share with you the products I used to achieve what I call my minimal makeup 'no makeup' look! 

1. FACE: The Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer for a natural, light, glow to the skin. You can wear this alone or before your foundation. I wore mine alone for a hint of glow on the skin.

2. EYEBROWS: The Nu Colour Lightshine Eyebrow Shaping Kit palette is such a simple palette that makes it so easy to use. It's also sweat proof, so your brows stay put for hours.

3. CONCEALER: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Caramel. My favourite concealer for the under eyes, bridge of my nose and chin area. The creamy consistency makes it very blendable and natural. It's a great highlighter too!

4. CHEEKS: MAC Powder Blush in 'Pinch Me'. Described by MAC as a medium dirty rose coral. I love this blusher, it's a subtle, sheer tone shade for everyday wear.

3. EYES: Rodial Glamolash Mascara XXL Black. I absolutely love this mascara for extreme lengthening. It's ideal for my struggle lashes haha!

4. HIGHLIGHTING: Ciaté Dewy Stix Luminous Highlighting Balm. I use this on the high points of my face. On my cheekbones, bridge of my nose. When the light hits your skin, you get that dewy skin-like glow instantly. 

5. LIPS: Buxom Lips Full-on Lip Polish. This gloss has a subtle pink colour to it, almost like your natural lip colour. This gloss has a tingling sensation for the lip plumping effect and very long wearing. It's a necessity in my handbag!

6. SETTING SPRAY: Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist. This adds a dewy-ness to your face and holds your makeup in place!

These are all the products I used on my face in the photo above!

Do you like a minimal makeup look?
