No Makeup-makeup

Here once again is my no makeup-makeup look. Can you tell this is my thing? This look is basically gravitating towards working with what you got and making your face acceptable for public viewing.

The first step when I roll out of bed in the morning is a coating of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, followed by my beloved Collection lasting perfection concealer around my chronically rudolph-esque nose, on spots and even under my baggy eyes, talk about stretching a product to it's limits! Then I add a quick flush of colour by dusting on Benefit's Hervana over the high points of my cheeks, to bring a bit of life into my face.

It is then pretty essential to define my invisible eyelashes by curling them with a couple of pumps of the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers and just one coat of the Clinique High impact Extreme volume mascara, (which isn't my favourite but let's not go there). Then I need to fill in my equally invisi-brows with MAC's Omega eyeshadow using an angled brush also from MAC, the 266 if I remember correctly. This is the very basics of my makeup routine, for when I am super pushed for time (i.e. every morning).  
Thanks for reading!
