My Drugstore 'No Makeup' Essentials

My Drugstore 'No Makeup' Look
Since it's supposedly summer even though it is raining as I type, I always like to try and wear lighter makeup and let me skin breathe more. I've been wearing my Double Wear foundation a lot less and going for a more natural or 'no makeup' makeup look recently and my skin does look a lot more healthy. 

Today I decided to share with you my drugstore 'no makeup' essentials.  

If I am having a good skin day which lately has been a few times I like to ditch my foundation and use The Body Shop BB Cream. This cream gives you a light to medium coverage and leaves you with an even finish. The white cream consistency did scare me at first but the cream adapts to your skin tone and blends in so quickly. My face doesn't feel half as heavy as it does with foundation and it doesn't feel clogged up either. Since I have oily skin I like to set my BB Cream with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder just to keep everything at bay. This isn't the best powder in the world but for a drugstore it is quite good and it keeps your makeup in place for hours.

The Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer is what I like to use to give my face some definition. This palette is so delicious you are almost tempted to eat it. This gives my skin a subtle bronze look with a tiny bit of shimmer. It is so easy to blend and just overall a lovely product to have in your makeup stash. I then apply the Natural Collection Blush in 'Peach Melba' to my cheeks, which is the perfect shade for a natural look. This gives my cheeks a tiny amount of colour that looks perfect for the 'no makeup' look.

If I fancy a little bit of a healthy glow I reach for the Bourjois Java Rice Powder and apply this just on my cheek bones, down my nose and my brow bone. This is such a light, subtle highlight that isn't too noticeable and perfect for those natural makeup looks. It is so easy to blend and smells amazing! If my eyes don't look as awake as I'd like them to look I will reach for the Rimmel Scandeleyes Kohl Liner in Nude and apply this to the bottom lids of my eyes. This instantly wakes my eyes up and really pulls my makeup together, I swear by this product!

To finish my drugstore 'no makeup' look I have been reaching out for NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Stockholm'. This is such a lovely matte nude lip shade perfect for a natural finish. I love all the NYX Nude Lip Colour range they're so inexpensive and literally have a colour for everyone!

What is your essential makeup item for a no makeup look??

  9. I love the NYX shade, it looks like a perfect everyday colour. I find that my Bourjois bronzer has zero pigmentation, maybe I got a bad one? I love my Natural Collection blush, they're so underrated xx

  10. Such a lovely post with some great products mentioned. I would really like to try more of the NYX matte lip creams as there are so many nice shades. My favourite things I like to use are the collection 'lasting perfection' concealer and my Clinique chubby stick in 'woppin' watermelon'. Holly x | http://www.thechroniclesofholly.com/
