FOTD: Fuss Free Plain Jane

I've been really neglecting my makeup collection as of late and instead of caking the products on, I've been going for a very minimalistic look and using products that I know I can rely on to stick around all day. Most of my week has involved a lot of traipsing around London and hoping on off buses, trains and tubes so my hair has pretty much been in a bun so it's out of my face and outfits have been versatile enough to go from meeting to lunch to office. What can I say, such is the life of a beauty PR.

My foundation of choice for about a week now has been the new Illamasqua Skin Base and it will probably be the only foundation I use this summer, shunning my trusty Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation.
This is what it looks like on:
Keep in mind that I applied my foundation at 8am and it lasted me until about 6pm when I got home and took it all off so I'm very impressed. I'm going to do a more thorough review of the Skin Base foundation next week so look out for that one. Until then, these are the products on my mug:

- *Benefit Porefessional PRO Balm - Used to prime my T-Zone and cheek area
- *Illamasqua Skin Base foundation in 10 - Applied with my hands and buffed out with my flat top kabuki
- Bourjois Lineur Pinceau in Black - Applied on upper lash line
- Max Factor Xperience Mascara in Black
- NARS Bronzer in Laguna - Used to lightly contour the cheekbones
- *NARS Blush in Orgasm - Applied on apples of cheeks and blended with Laguna
- Carmex Moisture Plus in Peach - Applied lightly on the lips

That's it.
I finished off with a quick spritz of MAC Fix+ and was on my merry way in 10 minutes!

What kind of no-makeup makeup have you been wearing? If you've got a way of incorporating colour in to a very simple makeup look, let me know because I'm looking for some inspiration to try coloured eye liner or something.

Until next time...
Keep swivelling those hips in your

    Your skin looks amazing!

    I have been opting for the natural look, most eye shadows I seem to be using at the moment is either MAC Naked Lunch or MAC All That Glitters.
