The No Makeup Makeup Look

I don't know about you, but I sure as hell don't wake up looking every bit of perfection in the morning! There are many mornings, however, that I would like to look as though I'm not wearing much makeup and have a natural glow to the skin. It takes a good few products, but the end result is something natural and absolutely suitable for everyday wear. It is quick and easy and leaves you looking put together and fabulous.

 The Products
1. Blend a small amount of your favourite foundation from the centre of the face outwards. This is the area that requires the most coverage generally...I find my cheeks and forehead hardly need anything. I use the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum and Real Techniques Buffing Brush. 
2. Blend some concealer under the eyes, across eyelids and onto any blemishes. My weapon of choice is the Collection Lasting Perfection in Medium. 
3. Fill in eyebrows. I use a mix of MAC's Corduroy and Copperplate. Seal with a gel if you've got unruly brows like me! I use Miss Sporty Clear Mascara.
4. Blend a cream blush across the cheeks. I use MAC's Blushcreme in Ladyblush with a Real Techniques Contour Brush. 
5. Blend a cream highlighter across the cheekbones, down the nose and on cupid's bow. My choice is MAC's Cream Colour Base in Pearl. I apply this with an Ecotools Shadow Brush. 
6. Curl eyelashes and apply mascara of choice. I use my Tweezerman curlers and No7 Exceptional Definition. This mascara focuses on seperation and length rather than clumpy volume - great for a more natural look.
7. Apply a little powder across the T-zone if you feel you need it. I use Sleek MakeUP's ONE Finishing Powder and any small fluffy powder brush.
8. I use whatever lipbalm I've got to hand for the final touch.
