My Sunday Face

After kicking back and relaxing for an entire Saturday, Sundays can sometimes be a bit of a whirlwind. Doing the weekly shop, tidying the flat, putting on the laundry and getting some college work done after a cheeky nip out for a coffee or lunch with the boyfriend - not exactly arduous but there's some effort in there somewhere.

And I do like to have a face on almost everyday. It's not too much about wanting to look made-up, but more about looking polished yet effortless - because you don't want to be the twat that has the full slap and smokey eyes on for a trip to Asda's. Also, I find I don't touch my face as much if I wear make-up. So my Sunday face usually looks something like this (scroll down for a close up!):



For my base, I mixed a bit of Maybelline's FITme Foundation in 220 with the good old Revlon Colorstay in 180 Sand Beige. Maybelline is one of my favourite foundations right now, and it reminds me of a slightly dewier Dior Diorskin Forever - but £20 cheaper.

Instead of worrying about those pesky spots, I choose to cover my undereyes with the ByTerry Touch Expert. This is no means as hardcore as Bobbi Brown's Corrector, but it's hydrating and has skincare qualities so it's great for the winter.

I always want my brows done, so a quick mix of the HD Brow Palette in Foxy is a necessity - no questions asked!

Cheek make-up is the one step I could never skip, so here we have the full sh'bang. I contoured slightly with the Physician's Formula Bronze Booster, and dusted a bit of Dior Amber Diamond (swoon). Over the top, I blushed up with NARS Douceur which has been a major blush crush of mine since the beginning of January (post coming soon!). These three have been gracing my cheeks for this entire year.

Eyeliner by far takes the longest time in my routine so that goes out the window on a Sunday, as does eyeshadow. So I've stripped it back to the ultimate eye-defining duo: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers and the Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum' Express Cat Eyes mascara in Waterproof. These keep my lashes at 90 degrees all day and are absolute lifetime favourites.

An uber close-up in the name of the blog!

What's your Sunday face?

  5. You look so lovely, Yu! Lately my lazy Sunday face is no makeup at all (not for lack of need, I must admit - I probably scare small children), but your look here is inspiring me to put in a little effort... you didn't have to do much at all but you look so polished and pretty :)
