WOMF | The Bare Minimum

WOMF The BAre Minimum

Despite what my extensive makeup collection may say about me on first sight, I am fairly minimal when it comes to my everyday makeup. And by that, I don’t mean everyday because I definitely do not wear make up on a daily basis (too lazy for that), I just mean a normal, non-going-out-out face of slap.

Here are the products I swear by in any case.

Foundation- Urban Decay Naked Skin in 0.5 (the lightest). I often skip foundation but I do love this lightweight, sheer option from UD.

Concealer – Collection Lasting Perfection in Light. This is a good, do-it-all option for red patches, blemishes and dark circles. Of which I often have all three. The joys.

Eye Primer – Benefit Stay Don’t Stray. I love this stuff. It’s great for keeping eyeshadow in place but you can also use it to even out colouring around the eyes and skip the shadow step.

Blush – MUA Cream Blusher in Cupcake. Despite the sugary name, this is a natural mid-toned pink. It blends out seamlessly using the Real Techniques Stippling Brush.

Brows – Urban Decay Naked Basics in Faint for powder, followed by Revlon Brow Fantasy in Dark Brown gel. I don’t use the pencil of the brow fantasy as I don’t need to add any more hairs but I like the Faint shade in Naked Basics for evening out the colour and the gel to keep everything in place.

Eyeshadow – Urban Decay Naked Basics – again this little wonder palette comes into play. I use W.O.S. all over. Naked 2 in the crease and Faint to deepen, then Venus in the inner corners to brighten and brow bone to highlight.

Eyeliner – Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Black Eyeliner Pen. I’m no pro at eyeliner, especially the elusive flick but this makes it so super easy. Supercat indeed.

Mascara – Rimmel Scandaleyes Volume Flash. I’m fairly unfussy when it comes to mascara, as long as it is back and results in fluffy lashes (not spider-leg-like) I’m happy. I like the big fat brush on this one but I also like most of the Maybelline Rocket/Colossal/Falsies ones as much.

So that’s my make up must haves, what are yours?
