I've been a bit under the weather recently. In an ideal world I'd just lay in bed feeling for sorry myself, but unfortunately I can't. So today I thought I'd share with you the makeup and skin care I reach for when I'm feeling a worse for wear!
Soap And Glory Scrub Your Nose In it | £9
When I'm feel tired, groggy and not very well nothing perks me up than giving my face a good scrub! I instantly feel more awake and alive. As you can see from the picture this one Soap and Glory is well loved! It has very scrubby particals in it that lift away dead skin cells. It also contains AHAs and doubles up as mask for a deep clean. Its also really refreshing so its perfect for an early morning wake up!
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream | £9
This is a multi task cream that anyone with dry / dehydrated skin needs! It can be used on the face or body for instant relief for dry or dehydrated skin. When I'm ill my skin becomes even more dehydrated and this gives it all the moisture it needs. Leaving it looking plumper and smoother.
Seventeen Skin Wow | £5.99
Perking up my dull skin is a daily issue for me, but even more so when I'm ill. This can be used as highlighter primer or mixed with foundation. I love this as a primer, it perks my skin right up, and leaves me with a smooth base for makeup application.
Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless | $5.21
This is a full coverage matte foundation. As much as like to opt for a lighter base I want something that is going to hide all signs of illness and fatigue. Plus I also want something that isn't going to move when I'm constantly blowing my nose! And this is perfect. This blends easily, lasts all day and leaves my skin looking flawless! A must have for sick days! See my full review here.
Bourjois Radiance Revel Concealer | £7.99
This is brilliant for concealing under circles and highlighting the under area! It is super brighting and instantly makes me look more awake and less ill!
Autography Highlighting Powder | £!5
To fake that lit from within glow this highlighter is perfect. Its very subtle so it wont look too over the top for those dreaded sick days. Its a golden champagne tone that brings out the check bones and gives me a bit of colour!
H&M Blush in the shade Sunrise Pink | £6.99 POST
This lovely Mauve toned blush instantly gives me a nice healthy colour thats easy to blend.
Maybelline Lash Sensation Mascara | £7.99
Mascara is a daily essential for making me look awake so definitly a must when I'm ill. And this one from Maybelline is just the best for giving me long, volumised lashes that stay curled all day!
Maybelline Baby Lips and Blush | £4.99
Now I wouldn't recommend this a blush the formula is far too sticky and doesn't set. But this is brilliant as a lip balm! When illness strikes i can't be dealing with the maintaince of lipsticks, lip balms are what I reach for. The shade Innocent Peach offers hydration and a subtle wash peachy colour!
