Simple 2 Minute Summer Make-Up Looks

Oh haaii guyss....So, feeling full of energy after starting work at 7am with pretty much zero hours sleep, was supposed to nap when I got in but my neighbours are having a nice ol' shindig outside (it sounds really fun, not even being sarcastic either)so I thought I'd do a nice make-up post.
The weather has been pretty epic over the past few days so thought as well make it a Summer orientated post; also, it's so hot I doubt anyone will want to smother themselves in heaps of ye olde make-ups so I tried not to go OTT. 

Here are a few simple looks that took about 2 minutes each (true story bro...maybe if I can discipline myself enough with this blog I'll make a video of my everyday routine) 

Start off with  blank canvas

Products used: 1. Collection 2000 Cream Puff #3 - Fairy Cake
                           2.L'oreal Paris Super Liner Carbon Gloss - Black
                           3. Bourjois Liner Effect Mascara (I didn't actually use this in the end but it was already in the shot)
                          4. L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes- Extra Black
                          5. No7 Metallic Eye Pencil #4 - Gold
                          6. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick #477 - Black Cherry
                          7.  Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner #018 - Addiction
                          8. Rimmel Exaggrate Lip Liner #063 - Eastend Snob
                          9. Sleek Divine Eyeshadow palette #594 - The Original 
(I also used a Barry M Lip Paint #54 - Peach, but that was last minute so I didn't take a pic) 




Look 1: "Barely there": Everyday look
Products used: 1, 4, 5, 3

Look 2: "Doll eyes": Pretty much the same as barely there but more emphasis on the eyes


Products used: 1, 4, 5, 7, Barry M #54

Look 3: "Cherry": More dramatic but can still wear everyday, or if you're going to a festival


Products used: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6

Look 4: "Go Green": Ok this look was actually me messing about but it kind of worked, might do another post with eye looks using my sleek palettes at some point


Products used: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9

Hope ya'll like these looks, sorry for the ridiculously cheesy names for them, thought it was a good idea at the time...starting to think otherwise....Do you have a favourite look?

    1. Ahhh no do they not??? I think they do international delivery but if they do it'll probably cost quite a bit...hopefully you'll get it there soon :-)

  15. Beautiful! Lovely make-up as well. The only think I know how to do is put on blush, top eye-liner and black eyeshadow for when I go out. I need to learn how to do subtle make-up like this X

    1. Hahaha that's pretty much like me, I can deal with the basics but when it comes to foundation, contouring and all that jazz I look like a 5 year old who's raided her mums' make-up draw... I guess practice makes perfect :-)
