A while ago I received an email from one of my blog readers, Rachael asked me to do a makeup look that features only affordable makeup products, plus something that is not too difficult to recreate. She’s a mom, so doesn’t have a lot of time to spend on doing her makeup. So that’s what I did – I filmed a quick & easy makeup look, and used only drugstore makeup and brushes.
This is my ‘Girl-On-The-Go’ makeup look for when I’m in a rush & need dash out the door. In the video I also give you a few tips & tricks – things to do to shorten the amount time you spend doing your makeup and recommendations for products that have multiple uses. As mentioned ALL the products and makeup brushes are from the drugstore, plus I give you the name of each product & brush on the screen while I’m using them. I’m not going to make this a very long blog post, I will let the photos do the talking. Basically this is a fresh-faced makeup look, with a bit of glow factor going on. Perfect for Spring!
The stars of the show are definitely the 2 Wet n Wild eyeshadow palettes, Walking On Eggshells is such a gorgeous trio and will suit most skin tones (I think it will look stunning on medium and darker skin tones). While we’re on the subject of Wet n Wild – have you entered my HUGE Wet n Wild hamper giveaway? If not, you can enter here (the giveaway ends on Sunday night, so make sure to get those entries in ASAP).
