Good afternoon everyone, today’s post is a beauty one. I wanted to share with you all my six go to products that I use on a daily basis for a minimal makeup look. The lipstick that I am wearing is just for the pictures as I don’t wear a bold lipstick regularly.




Right lets begin with the first product I use on my face first thing in the morning after my shower. Yes it this caffeine solution from The Ordinary and I have been using for over a year now. I was skeptical at first as to whether or not it would work. But at such affordable price I had nothing to lose apart from being a little disappointed.

So I decided what the hell lets give this Caffeine Solution a try, now after three kids and the lack of sleep, mama’s out there I am sure you can relate. I have dark circles and puffiness under my eyes, hence the reason for purchasing the Caffeine Solution in first place. Now that I have been using it for some time I have actually seen some improvement specially for my puffiness under the eye. I love using this product and will continue to do so.


Next  and onto my Shiseido Vital perfection with SPF 30, as I am getting older I have become more serious about skin care. I absolutely adore this brand and this is my second product that I apply to my face. What I love about it is that it is very light in consistancy and that it includes SPF. What’s not to love right?! No white streaks on my face like some other SPF products used to leave or that ashy look either. Oh and it also smells wonderful, not only does it leave my skin feeling moisturised, it also leaves it smoother and firmer!



Moving on and onto my foundation, for those days when I feel like wearing make-up I use my M.A.C Face and Body. This is so light, it gives a sheer coverage and that’s how I like my foundations. Just a hint of colour to even out my skin tone. It leaves this amazing dewy finish as I don’t like that powdery look and all done. I have been using this for nearly fifteen years now.


Then I apply a wash of colour over my eyelids and my go to palette is this Chanel LES 4 OMBRES quad. My quad palette features the most advanced innovation to enhance creativity. Its optimised formula unites a soft texture and an easy application to achieve maximum colour that is consistent, luminous and lasts all day long. The shades I have gone for are matt as thats what I prefer, but they have a variety of effects in the form of satiny, iridescent or metallic. I use one shade and gently wash that over my eyelid ever so slightly as I don’t want an intense look.


My winged eye liner is a must and I use the Rimmel black liquid eyeliner. Again I have been using this product for years and it’s second nature when I use it.


Last but not least I use my NARS Contour blush in Gienah, I use the darker shade. This just adds some warmth to my face and is the perfect pop of colour on my cheeks and around my hairline too and is the finishing touch to my daily fresh face. Like I mentioned earlier I decided to wear a pop of red on my lips for the pictures. I am wearing the shade Lady Danger from M.A.C.

    Do you think The Ordinary Caffeine Solution would help brighten my eye area? I often feel like my eyes look dull and tired, so I’d love to sort that out. Also, I’m dying to try that MAC foundation. You have much nicer skin than me so I bet you look amazing with such a lightweight foundation ๐Ÿ™‚ x

      Hi Sarah,

      I can only go by my experience and so far I can see a slight change in the darkness under my eye. I would say that you should try it out and see how it goes and at such an affordable price it’s a great way to test the product out.The MAC foundation is light but it can be buildable for more coverage.

    I don’t know any of these products, but I really enjoyed learning more about them.
    And I think you should use this lipstick color more, it looks beautiful on you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I always love to hear what other women use. I have heard of the Ordinary brand but haven’t tried it yet.

    You always have such flawless makeup so it’s great to see the products you use! I used to wear BB cream regularly but I’m only wearing it a couple of times a week now, I don’t wear anything other than moisturiser most days!

    Hope that you are having a nice week and have a lovely weekend ahead of you ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Chanel quad is really pretty! I wish I could use The Ordinary but everything I’ve tried from them has caused irritation, so annoying because they’re a great affordable brand. The Kiehl’s avocado eye cream is one of my favourite daily products x

    These look like some great products and collection! Tempted by a few of these shades. Your photographs are gorgeous as always too!

    hahaha! I guess everyone has that one eyeliner that they love and can’t change. For me, it’s the Marcelle precision liquid eyeliner pen!
    I’ve never heard of the ordinary caffine solution, will have to check it out for my under eyes!
