I used to hide behind makeup and feel like a completely different person if I left the house without it, as if I should’ve felt apologetic to the people who saw me in my natural state, or even carry round a photo of me with makeup on to show what I really looked like. But this past year I’ve become a lot more comfortable in my own skin and barely wear any make up, but if I do I tend go for a natural look to enhance my features rather than caking it all on.
I love makeup and I always will, but I feel like we have been conditioned to mask ourselves with it rather than using to emphasise our beauty. Now, I’m not judging anyone because I am the first to like a #browsonfleek Instagram picture and I really do appreciate a well made up face (or beat as they say on the gram), but I just can’t commit to that everyday!
These six products are my staples for creating a quick and, if I dare say so myself, stunning natural look:
- Benefit Speed Brow
- Mac Mineralize Skinfinish
- Benefit They’re Real Mascara
- Smashbox Photo Finish Primer SPF 20
- Bare Minerals Original Foundation
- Clarins Lip Perfecter in Rosewood Shimmer
