Makeup of the Day: Weekend Edition

Hello beauties,

On the weekends I don’t normally wear makeup but sometimes I feel like a little something. Here’s my quick go to makeup that I wear on the weekend and typically my go to travel makeup. It takes me less than 10 minutes to apply so it’s perfect when you’re in a rush or want minimal fuss.


Smashbox BB Cream- Medium/ Dark

I apply a small dollop full all over my face using my Real Techniques Stippling Brush.

Optional: Concealer for under the eyes and to cover any blemishes

Optional: Powder if you need it. I barely powder and the BB Cream stayed on the face well.

NARS Bronzer- Casino

Bronzer is a must for me. I apply it using a 3 motion, starting from under my cheekbones, drag it up to my temples and back down to my jawline.

Milani Baked Blush- Berry Amore

I apply my blush directly to the apples of my cheeks. What’s great about this blush is that it has a shimmer to it, so it’s like a 2 in 1 product, blush and highlighter!

Optional: Fill in your brows or at a minimum comb them through.

Rimmel Scandal’ Eyes Mascara*

I always curl my lashes first then coat the top and bottom lashes.

Lipstick or Gloss

You can apply a balm, gloss or lipstick. When I wear a simple base I prefer a coloured lip, I feel it looks like I’ve put in loads of effort.
