WHY I DONT WEAR MAKEUP EVERYDAY
I know I’ve just launched a beauty website so you’d expect that I wear a face full of make up that took me more then 15 mins every day to get ready. Honestly that is so far from the truth. Whenever I don’t need to, I don’t have make up on. I don’t wear makeup everyday and there are a few reasons behind it….
Okay lets straight up state one of the obvious reasons L A Z Y…..I would rather use my time in the morning on my skincare routine and hanging out by the coffee machine. As Glossier says skin first, make up second and I couldn’t agree with this more. I never rush my skincare routine.
Acne prone: Yes, still at age of 26, I thought this would have been over with years ago, sadly no! Wearing thick layers of makeup really clogs up my pores and can cause me to break out. Even with removing my makeup properly it doesn’t help that I’ve had makeup on my face all day. I also find that my skin can go one of two ways after wearing makeup all days, it will either be really oily or really dry.
Less is more: I do follow this motto a lot in life and my beauty regime included. Beauty is on the inside after all so I like to keep my look super natural, yes there is some pigmentation and freckles but I have a nice glow to my skin once I apply tinted products and of course SPF!
My everyday face: I generally rotate three of my favourite products depending how my skin is on the day. If you don’t have The Base by Lara Bingle LB Cream then I suggest you add it to your routine. I love this product, It gives me a really nice natural coverage and if I need an extra glow I had a little bit of the Chantecaille Liquid Lumiere to it. I also the BAREMINERALS Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel. This product does have more of the shine look to it, it plumps my skin a little bit more but depending on how my skin is feeling it can get a little bit oiler by the end of the day. I only recently tried the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser and fell in love with product after the first wear. It gives you a little bit of coverage and really brightens and evens out your skin. Plus it doesn't make my skin oily by the end of the day. It lasts all day.
What are some of your favourite no make up products?
