I was inspired to put this blog together as I’m often asked what makeup I use on myself. With the exception of a special event, I keep my makeup minimal, natural-looking and it usually takes me less than 10 minutes to apply before heading out of the house. If I’m really honest, it can be on the train. I would roll my eyes at these girls before I started my 6am commute, now I get it, after all everyone feels better with a bit of slap on, especially at that time. I stick to the essentials in my makeup bag, with the odd seasonal update thrown in. All the time my main focus being to keep my skin glowing, cover my imperfections (dark eyes and lovely spots) and finally pull out my features, less being more, especially now I’m older.
