We all have different makeup looks, one that just about covers our dark patches when heading out of the house somewhere unimportant, one that contains so many products that you cannot keep count and many more in between. Today, I have a look that is in between these two looks. I have picked out my 3 favourite products, an eye product, a face product and a lip product to make a subtle and cheap look. It was very difficult to only choose one product for each section, as I am such a makeup junkie that I have tens of lovely brands - with fabulous products. Luckily. though, after an hour or so choosing, I managed to find 3 simple products.

The three I have chosen are:
  • Rimmel London's Wake Me Up Foundation in 100 Ivory 
  • NYX's Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake
  • Maybelline New York's Great Lash Mascara in Very Black
I chose the Maybelline mascara out of several others due to the fact that it is very long wearing and doesn't tend to smudge below the eye as much as some of the others I have. Due to the fact that I haven't used a powder in this look, I thought that this was essential for a mascara. I have also chosen this mascara because it is very voluminous which I think is important in a subtle makeup look, to make your eyes look more open and warm. 

I have chosen the Rimmel foundation because it is without a doubt, my favourite foundation of all time. It provides such a lovely makeup base and it is perfect for the brighter months because it has a bit of a shimmer to it which makes your skin look a lot more vibrant and healthy. I also find that this is one of my less oily foundations which is again important for this look because I am not using powder and I don't want my face to look too oily. 

NYX's Butter Gloss is just an ideal product for this look. Lipsticks like MAC don't tend to last as long on the lips and look better in a full makeup look. The NYX Butter Gloss is a long-wearing product that looks amazing on your lips. It is also a neutral colour which is perfect for a makeup look with minimal products. 


What is your 'go-to' makeup look? What are the products that you throw on in a rush?
