Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of posts about makeup in a rush and they’ve been going down really well. I think it’s something we all need to have in our collection, to be able to do different types of makeup in a rush – because you’ll never know when you’re going to need them.
Alongside doing your makeup in a rush, I think that being able to create a makeup look with as little makeup products as possible is also a skill that everyone needs. This kind of look is great for when we’re travelling light – may it be on holiday or a weekend away. Or maybe if you need to do your makeup on the commute to work (although I wouldn’t suggest that if you drive to work).
The makeup look I’ve got here for you today is really simple, it’s definitely an everyday look and it’s perfect for making you look like you’ve made more of an effort than you probably have. In relation to the look, it’s really adaptable too. You can change up the lip colour to give yourself a totally different look. You can also build up the ‘eyeshadow’ further if you’re looking for a more smoky sort of look.
I hope you like this post and if you have any quick fire makeup tips for everyone, please leave them below!
