Makeup of the Day: Simple/Lazy

On those days where getting up is a struggle this is my go to choice for makeup as it requires no mess, thinking or precision. 

Max Factor's Whipped Creme Foundation is the first mousse style foundation I have tried and I bought it after being sent a sample. Although it is different to what I usually use the finished product leaves a low coverage (although I would assume that it is build-able) 'not there' appearance, whilst still hiding the more obvious blemishes. This can be applied perfectly well with just your fingers, making the process even more hassle free, but I prefer to use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. 

For simplicity I use the Max Factor's Miracle Touch Creamy Blush. Blending can be achieved easily with just fingers, which I feel gives it a more natural finish anyway. My favourite colour in the range is 09 Soft Murano which is a deep pink. This darker tone is perfect for Winter (Drier skin anyone?) especially because of the cream formula. 

One of my favourite, easy to apply eye products are the Maybelline 24 Hour Tattoo Eyeshadows. Again, this is easy to apply with just your fingers, and even though it can be used as a base, the colour is bold enough that it looks amazing on its own. My favourite shade is On and On Bronze, however I recently purchased Pomegranate, which is a deep pink shade, and it is growing on me. 

My go to mascara at the moment is Maybelline The Rocket. I prefer rubber applicators, and this mascara gives a slight boost to the volume of my lashes, although it does lack in the length department (*heads out of the gutters please*). An overall decent mascara for the price you pay.

Lazy days means simple lip products. The Miss Sporty Dr Balm's are perfect for a lazy day. They give a wash of colour and keep your lips nice and moisturised, perfect for the colder months. I always keep one of these on me and one in my car just in case I need it! 

So there it is, my simple/lazy make up! 
Do any of you have go to products for those kind of days?


  1. I really want to try the Tattoo Eyeshadows. The color you have there looks gorgeous. :)


    1. You should give them a go! On and On Bronze is the one I would recommend as it can be used easily and on everyday looks!

  2. You have so much description! Which is good by the way, most beauty bloggers just post pictures but I was surprised reading about the items. I'm thinking of purchasing the rocket volume mascara now. :D
