My skin has been breaking out a lot lately for I don’t know which reason. Today was one of those days where I look and feel like a mess. Not a tiny bit of makeup would make me feel a tiny bit beautiful. But, I had to do something about my face and hide all the atrocities that have appeared to stay for a while. As I had enough of homework for the day, I took a little break and decided to dig out a few products to achieve a “no makeup” look or “I’m too lazy to do anything” look.
I didn’t bother doing my eyes as I was unwilling to consume my last bit of energy on the mascara removal process. Girls, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about!
I started with Benefit’s Porefessional to smooth out my face and minimize my pores because, today, everything has gone wrong and a good primer was urgently needed. This is the little sample I got here. Then I packed thin layers of the lightweight Tinted Moisturizer by Laura Mercier, a very well loved product. Enough has been applied in order to get rid of all the redness. I then dug out of my mum’s makeup drawer Benefit’s Erase Paste and tried it for the first time today. It did a great job at brightening and concealing my under eye area but I still needed MAC’s studio finish concealer to eliminate the breakouts. Yes, it was that bad! I’ll review Erase Paste after a few more tries. Stay tuned!
To add up a bit of “fun” to the look and to fake my healthy looking skin, I applied a tiny bit of Benefit’s PosieTint on the apple of my cheeks blending it towards my cheekbones where I slapped on Highbeam by Benefit. I switched back to this highlighter to obtain a healthy, young, glowy skin with a candlelight effect. To finish up the look I dusted a wee bit of Gingerly by MAC along the hollow of the cheeks bringing it up towards by temples. I know I live in Dubai, but I haven’t seen the sun this year due to homework and extra curricular activities. Thank god for makeup!
