On the weekends, I like to keep my makeup as simple and easy as possible (especially during the summer) Most weekends I don’t even worry about putting on makeup unless I leave the house, and even then, it’s only when I’m going out somewhere special. My weekend style is super casual and laid-back, so I like to stick to a makeup routine that is simple, quick, and fairly minimal.
I start by applying NYX BB Cream in Nude 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 Deep 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. 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 to give my eyes the perfect finishing touch, and apply some of the L’Oreal Pop Balm in Bold Blush 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?
