beauty: no-make up make up

July 26, 2015

With summer in full effect and the humidity waves hitting New York every so often, I’ve become so lazy to wear any make-up.

As much as I love the sky rocketing boost beauty products make me feel sometimes, I am not down to waste product. I mean that!  It is wasteful because it is melting off my face! I decided to let my face breathe-ish when the weather doesn’t permit me to be cute.

Here is what I have discovered! Typically, I don’t wear full coverage aside from my Laura Mercier‘s tinted moisturizer. I swapped the tint for plain ol’ moisturizer with SPF. Throw on some NARS concealer on my minor breakouts, dark spots and circles. Splash on some mascara, a little bronzer and the nude lip cream I swear by, NYX Cosmetics in London.

Accidentally, I am one of those girls that don’t look different with or without make-up. I love this routine because I can slip out of my apartment in a matter of 15-20 minutes. You know what that means? More time to snooze or fiddle with my outfit of the day, which is probably the most time consuming part of my getting-ready routine.

Happy Sunday, dolls! Summer got me feeling all kinds of lazy and work is exceptionally busy at the moment, hence my absence. But I promise I will check in here, plus I have so much news to share with you all. Thanks for tuning in (:
