When I was in my 20s I used to spend a minimum of 30 minutes applying my make-up before I could even face the day! Now, in my 30s I opt for the snooze button! I still want to look fresh faced so with the help of Mary Kay I have been able to perfect my look in half the time! Hallelujah!
Before applying your make-up, prep your skin with your everyday cleansing routine. If you haven't already had a chance to take a look at The Importance of Healthy Skin where I explain how to look after your skin, have a little catch up on the link above.
After cleansing my skin I applied the Mary Kay CC Cream using my fingers. I love this look because it is so fresh but also extremely quick to achieve. I primed my eyes using the Mary Kay Eye Primer, try to avoid using the CC cream on the eye lids. This is because the CC Cream is not a suitable base for eyeshadow.
For the eyes, the Mary Kay True Dimensions Palette in Moroccan Dunes is perfect for creating a range of looks. I opted for a very quick natural eye, starting with the lightest shade I dusted this all over the lid. I then blended the neutral shade through the crease, followed by the taupe shade on the outer corner of the eye. Taking the darkest shade in the palette I smudged it along the top and bottom lash line.
I finished the eyes with two coats of Mary Kay Ulitimate Mascara in black. I always opt for a mascara that will give me volume with minimum effort!
This look would not be complete without a nude lip! I am obsessed with the Mary Kay Semi Gel Matte Lipstick in the shade Bashful You. I outlined my lips first with the Mary Kay Medium Nude lipliner to define my pout!
