I start by applying NYX BB Cream in Nude ($12.99) all over my face and blending it down my neck (most of the time I just use my fingers for this as it’s quicker and easier, plus my brushes are usually in need of a wash by the weekend). This BB cream is perfect for the weekends because it’s light and non-fussy while still offering a good amount of coverage. Next I’ll brush some of the Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep ($24) through my brows, just to fill them in a bit and help them keep their shape.
For my eyes, the quickest thing to reach for is a Maybelline Color Tattoo ($6.99). My favorite one to grab for the weekend is Creamy Beige from the Leather Collection. It’s the prettiest soft warm brown color, and it helps give the eyes a bit of definition without having to do much work. Lastly, I pop on a few coats of the L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara in Blackest Black ($7.99) to give my eyes the perfect finishing touch, and apply some of the L’Oreal Pop Balm in Bold Blush ($7.99) for some moisture to my lips and a soft pop of color.
And that’s it! My quick, easy, no-fuss makeup routine for weekends when I want to look somewhat alive and put together. 😉
Do you wear makeup on the weekends, or do you like to go completely fresh faced?
