Hi Dolls. As we reach the end of November I though I would share with you my go-to 5 minute Green Makeup look. I’m always busy and on the go so this is the look I tend to go for on a day-to-day basis. I like to keep it fresh faced and simple. Less is definitely always more. Think GiGi Hadid (I wish). Off-duty chic, although I am always off-duty.
Before I even get started on my face I like to moisturise with the Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil which you can get 20% off of using the code BLACKFRI on Beauty Expert. This is quickly becoming one of my favourite facial oils.
For my face I use the Lily Lolo BB Cream in Medium. I conceal any areas that need concealing with my favourite Green Concealer which is the RMS Beauty ‘Un’ Cover-Up in 44 for scars or pigmentation and 33 for the under eyes and highlighting. Currently you can get RMS Cover up for £21 instead of £28 from Very Exclusive, although I think only shade 11 and 44 are in stock at the moment but it’s a very good discount. I set my under eyes and any other spots I have concealed with my Sam Pure Minerals Instant Glow Mineral Setting Powder. Mineral makeup is great for acne prone skin because it doesn’t clog your pores. It feels really light on the skin. Currently Lily Lolo have 20% off for Black Friday using the code CYBER15. Feel Unique have 15% off using the code BLACKFRIDAY15. Naturisimo also have 15% off using the code BLACK15.
For the brows I like to set them in place with the Jane Iredale in Brunette. These usually retail for £16 but Face the Future currently sell them for £10.95 and on top of that they have a 7% off promotion for Black Friday with the code BLACK7. Then I fill my brows with the Lily Lolo Eyebrow Duo in Dark which you can purchase from Feel Unique (get 15% off using the code BLACKFRIDAY15), Naturisimo (get 15% off using the code BLACK15), or you can purchase it straight from Lily Lolo (get 20% off using the code CYBER15).
I curl my lashes (what would we do without eyelash curlers??) and go over them with 2-3 coats of the Lily Lolo mascara. If I feel like it i might apply some of the Bellapierre Gel Eye Liner in Ebony on my upper lash line and smoke it out a little with a blending brush. Naturisimo still have an 20% off Bellapierre cosmetics and then you can also use the code BLACK15 to get an extra 15% off on top.
I warm up my face with the Bellapierre Compact Mineral Bronzer in Kisses. These usually retail for £29.99 but I’m not too sure if this colour is being discontinued because not many stores stock it but I got mine at Whole Foods in Croydon for half price! It’s a really nice bronzer that could double up as a blusher because of the slight pink tones. I highlight ever so slightly with the 100% Pure Luminous Creme in Starlight on the cheekbones, the tip of my nose and cupids bow.
For my lips I like to keep them light, I go in with the Burts Bees Lip Crayon in either Sedona Sands or Niagara Overlook and top it up with the 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Gloss in Juicy Pink Grapefruit. Their makeup is pigmented with fruit dye which is amazing.
And that’s me good to go! On a daily basis I wear a lot of mineral makeup because it’s light and breathable.
Until next time!
