Makeup Tutorial – Affordable Fresh-Faced & Glowy

Glowy & Fresh Face Makeup

Happy Monday, friends!  Another catch-up blog post to show you how to create a fresh-faced and glowy makeup look using only affordable skincare and makeup products (Oh! Plus affordable makeup brushes and sponges).  As mentioned in this blog post, I’m catching up on posting my most recent YouTube videos on the blog because I’m able to add a bit more information about the video that I might not have included in the video itself i.e. what I’m wearing (fashion), direct links to stockists, promo details etc.

Today’s post is a full face makeup tutorial taking you through some affordable skincare products from NIVEA, as well as drugstore makeup products to achieve a very natural makeup look with a healthy glow (plus NO falsies).

Grab some snacks, and let’s get started with this quick & easy makeup tutorial!

    Nivea is my go to skincare for almost a year now. I’ve tried so many products and after while it starts to irritate my “rosacea-skin”. No problems with the Nivea Q10 range
