Simple Wake up Makeup

by: KathleenLights

Here's a makeup video that we can all use for those laidback, minimal-makeup kind of day. We also spotted her using a few products that are definitely makeup must-haves, like Bioderma's Moisturizing Stick, Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser, and Clinique's Lash Doubling Mascara.



I’d like to think of wisdom as something you can now have without the crow’s feet and laughter lines. After all, ageing is not what it once was as shown to us by skincare power-country, Korea, and many of the world's top celebrities (have you seen Sofia Vergara? She hasn't aged a bit!). So what are the 8 most common signs of ageing?

1. Sagging and wrinkles around the eyes
2. Dull, rough skin
3. Pronounced nasolabial lines
4. Overall loss in elasticity and plumpness of the skin
5. Crepe-paper-like skin on the neck
6. Liver spots on the skin
7. Marionette lines around the mouth
8. Smaller, sagging jawline

While the signs of ageing can seem a little daunting, the good news though is that there are steps you can take to slow down the process of ageing and keep those fine lines and liver spots at bay.


Care for your skin from the inside out

I'm sure everyone has heard of the phrase "you are what you eat." In this instance, I couldn't agree more. Feeding your body antioxidants, water, and nutrients will help to nourish your skin. So stay away from caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco; and your body and skin will love you for it.
Always, always apply sunscreen

The number one cause of ageing is sun damage. The sun can cause damage to your skin that will only surface years later, so start your SPF regimen young! A great way to incorporate sunscreen is to buy a day moisturiser that already has a sun protection factor (SPF) in it, like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Dermalift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Day Cream SPF23 PA++. It is also full of anti-ageing skincare ingredients so you are healing your skin while you protect and moisturise it.

Invest in the right skincare

It’s helpful to have a bit of knowledge about skincare ingredients and how they work before deciding on a skincare product. For anti-ageing skincare, you want to look for active ingredients that promote the renewal of skin cells, like Vitamin A (Retinol A or Pro-Retinol A in the skincare world). Retinol A has tons of skincare benefits, including reversing sun damage, promoting the renewal of cells, and preventing damage from free-radicals. L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Dermalift is a great, affordable range which utilises Pro-Retinol A (a gentle form of Retinol, best suited to sensitive skin).

Use the products that you need

What are your skincare concerns? If you have sagging skin around your eyes, then using an eye cream is important. L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Dermalift has an eye cream that lifts as it treats wrinkles. It's also a great pick-me-up in the mornings for when your eyes need a little boost. Looking for a more all-round solution? Get a serum like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Dermalift Intensive Repairing Essence

Here's a pro-tip: when it comes to selecting a skincare product, it’s all about knowing what your skin needs. Pick a product that serves that function well and you can't go wrong!

Here's the thing, sometimes I feel like I use way too many makeup products on my face than necessary. That realization usually washes over me while I'm rummaging through my makeup drawer to pick out the products for the day's #MOTD. Even my no-makeup makeup look requires quite a number of items, which is ironic considering that it's supposed to make me look like I barely spent any effort or time on my face.

So after watching this 5 Product Face video from Youtuber Allison Anderson, I thought to myself: will I be able to pull-off a 5 product face?

Read on to see the items I would use for a "5 Product Face" >>

BB Cream

Dr.Jart+ Dis-A-Pore BB Cream

I usually use four items for my base: primer, foundation, concealer, and setting powder---carefully layered to create a light-to-medium coverage that more or less lasts the whole day. So, since I have to cut down and only use one product for my face that can even out my skin-tone and cover any blemishes while still being able to last all day, I've opted for this BB Cream from Dr.Jart. It has a light-to-medium matte coverage that keeps the skin looking fresh and hydrated through the day. 


Anastasia Brow Wiz

If there is one makeup item I cannot do without, it's an eyebrow product; and you really can't go wrong with this Anastasia Brow Wiz. You can create full, thick brows by creating a defined brow line, or go for something more natural-looking by just lightly filling-in any gaps. Brush through with the spoolie and you're good to go!


L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadow

Just because I can only use 5 products doesn't mean I'm going to skip adding a touch of colour to my eyes. So for something quick, easy, and pretty much fuss-free, I reach for a L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush for a shimmery, bronze colour all over the lids. Best thing about this product: it has an amazing colour pay-off and doesn't crease through the day---perfect for when you can't use an eye primer underneath.


Maybelline The Falsies

This is a drugstore favourite and has been a mainstay in my makeup collection for quite a while now. I reach for this on days when I want to bring attention to my eyes without having to apply my usual black eyeliner. For something pretty inexpensive, this product gives long, voluminous lashes without the need for falsies (hence, the name).

Lip & Cheek Stain

Benefit Benetint

I'm cheating a little here with this two-in-one product; but if you ever need that one item that looks gorgeous both on your cheeks and lips, then this is it. The light rose colour of Benefit's Benetint subtlety tints your cheeks with a sweet, pink flush. Then add a few layers of the tint on your lips for a rosy pout that looks like you've just had the best cherry popsicle around.
