Saturday mornings are my favourite. If I don’t have much on I’ll have a cup of tea in bed whilst reading or catching up on YouTube videos. When I finally roll out of bed I alway keep my style really simple and fuss free, including my beauty routine. Today I’ll be sharing with you my favourite beauty products to achieve an effortless weekend look.
I always start out with a sunscreen and apply this all over my face and neck. I am currently rotating between the QV Face Moisturising Day Cream and the Natural Instinct Tinted Face Natural Sunscreen. If my skin needs extra hydration I’ll also apply a light face oil; I am really liking Drunk Elephant’s Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil at the moment!
Depending on how clear my skin is, I’ll apply a BB Cream (currently rotating between La Mav’s Certified Organic BB Creme and Organic Spa Skincare’s Beauty Balm). If I have a few breakouts I apply the Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation to target areas (usually my chin and jawline).
Next up I’ll add some colour to my cheeks. Lately I’ve been loving Colourpop’s Super Shock Shadow in Tea Party. While this is technically an eyeshadow I like to also use it as a shimmer/blush on my cheeks. As this is super pigmented I apply this very lightly.
To finish off I swipe my lips with Ere Perez’s Cacao Butter Lip Colour in Hoopla. This is a warm nude shade and adds a nice sheen to my lips.
As you can tell I really favour a quick makeup look on weekends (I can’t bring myself to forego it completely). Not only is it effortless, it’s a great way to let the skin breathe a bit between all of that heavy makeup during the week!
Do you wear lighter makeup on weekends? What are your go-to products?
