My everyday ‘no make up’ look

Although I love watching beauty videos on YouTube (especially the lovely Pixiwoo ladies) and spending on new beauty buys, most days I don’t leave myself time to do a full face of make up. I love to look good but I also love to have a little bit more time in bed! With this in mind I thought I would share my two make up essentials that I never leave the house without.

I tend to have regular breakouts or scarring left from these on my chin so need to cover up.


After my morning skincare routine, which currently includes moisturising with my Grandma’s beauty staple of thick Nivea cream, I prime my skin with Benefit POREfessional . I love that this has a little colour so it smooths my face and makes it look a bit healthier and a bit less walking dead!


The primer itself doesn’t help me feel confident enough to leave the house. The spots/scars always get the MAC treatment with my Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20. This is my saviour and covers so well. I feel as though I don’t need anymore coverage with this and can leave the house with primer and concealer alone.



If I’m feeling a bit fancy I might even put on a little mascara but I don’t always get that carried away! 😊 That said when I’m not at work, on special occasions or when we have visitors at work I love getting made up.

What products can you not leave the house without? Does a no make up look fill you with dread or leave you feeling free? As always let me know your thoughts below.

    I enjoy makeup free days at the weekend but never go without at work. I start work at 6.45 and without foundation, concealer, powder, blusher and mascara, I don’t feel human at all.

      I sometimes look at myself and think a bit of blusher and mascara would help and I have had ‘are you ok, you look a bit peaky’ thrown at me on days when I look really tired but there is something freeing in not caring about what my make up looks like and having to touch it up during the day. But on days when I’m not at work or have a bit more time in the mornings I love taking the time to put proper make up on 😊
