I’ve been doing a little fast little make-up movies on Instagram and Youtube and thought I’d begin to share them right here. I like earlier than and afters, the transformation from regular to glam or from washed-out to a bit extra full of life. And this video simply exhibits you the method in between – a complete make-up look edited down to 1 minute for many who are impatient and have the eye span of a gnat, which I feel might be most of us lately.
I’ve embedded the video beneath with a fast run-down of the make-up used and any explicit likes and dislikes, product-wise. For these coming over for Instagram who’d similar to an at-a-glance product run-down, that is it:
Dior Perpetually Pores and skin Glow in 2N, right here*
Vieve Basis Brush, right here*
Charlotte Tilbury Movie Star Bronze & Glow, right here*
Uncommon Magnificence Cream Blush in Rose, right here*

Elnett Hair Spray, right here*
Uncommon Magnificence Liner in Enjoyable, right here*

Earlier than and After Magnificence: October 2022
I start with the Dior Perpetually Pores and skin Glow Basis in shade 2N (on-line right here*) utilized with the Vieve basis brush, £26 right here*. This can be a long-term face base favorite because it provides luminescence however doesn’t depart any explicit residue on the pores and skin. For individuals who desire a extra velvety matte end there’s the Dior Perpetually – each have nice longevity and it is advisable to work comparatively quick to mix them in. It’s only a very, very dependable basis.
For barely much less protection however related type of low-key glow check out L’Oreal True Match (on-line right here*). There are a great deal of shades and it’s marginally simpler to work with because it doesn’t set so quick. It’s additionally a fraction of the price, when you’re price range aware.
I don’t use concealer right here because the Dior basis does the trick for me (I would like concealer with the True Match) so it’s straight in with my final “on the spot glamour” product, Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow (on-line right here*). I take advantage of this lots after I wish to create one thing a bit extra grown-up and polished – the cheekbone and chisel. It’s an funding however just a little goes a great distance and I by no means fail to be happy with the outcomes. A little bit of the bronzing contour beneath the cheekbones and a contact of the highlighter on prime, that is not to your low-key on a regular basis routine when you prefer to have a totally pure, undetectable type of make-up look.
The blush here’s a Uncommon Magnificence cream one in Rose*, utilized with a Jones Street blusher brush. And that completes the pores and skin.
You possibly can see that I very merely brush and set my brows utilizing a spritz of Elnett* on a forehead brush (this one is Profit and has an angled liner brush on the opposite finish, discover it right here*). It’s a really fast and low-cost approach of doing brows when you’re not fussed about including extra color and quantity to them – you can not go far unsuitable with this system and even when you’re probably the most minimal make-up particular person ever I’d suggest including this in to your day. It simply appears to elevate my eyes barely and make me look extra awake.
Eyeshadow is especially “the highest center one” from the NARS Voyageur Palette in Suede. I feel that that is my all-time favorite eyeshadow palette attributable to its useful measurement and the truth that I like all the shades, no exception. They’re all helpful and you may create so many seems to be. The palette is £28 (discover it right here*) and for a heartstopping second final month I believed they’d discontinued it however it seems to be to be in inventory with just a few etailers so I’ll chill.
I take advantage of the marginally darker shades simply to run alongside the decrease lashline after which the darkest within the palette to create a small “flick” on the outer nook. You already know the drill, you’ve seen this earlier than.
Mascara is an Armani one however that didn’t float my boat an excessive amount of, the comb was barely too thick for me and I are inclined to get lots on my lids when that is the case! Again to the Telescopic* I am going…
I’ve used an eyeliner right here, although I’m making an attempt to not use an eyeliner lately for low-key seems to be. There’s simply one thing about it that I feel makes me look barely drained, except I’m doing a giant previous smokey eye extravaganza and mixing all of it in. I’ll must experiment extra on that principle. Anyway this gel liner is attractive whether or not it tires me out or not: the Chestnut gel liner from Hourglass*. It glides on fantastically after which sticks in place for hours and hours.
On the lips? A Uncommon Magnificence lip liner in shade Enjoyable*, ‘cos that’s what I’m, and the AM/PM lip crayon from Code Eight in a shade referred to as At The Barre*. I’d forgotten about these stunning tinted lip balms from Code Eight; really easy to make use of and really moisturising. As you’d hope.
That’s the entire look. I curled my hair with my Cloud9 wand (this one*, in case you’re ) after which bouffed it out with my fingertips in order that all of it felt just a little bit retro.
I’ve some analysis to do earlier than subsequent month’s One Minute Make-up; I’m looking for the loveliest excessive avenue lipsticks. There appears to be a dearth of good pinks on the excessive avenue – I’m pondering one’s like Clinique’s Peony Pop – and I’m decided to search out some good choices. Any concepts, please let me know within the feedback…
