Glowing skin without too much effort (or products) is my MO. This is my go-to beauty routine for when I’m headed out and want to feel natural, but also like I made an effort.
I definitely demand a lot from my makeup. Basically I want flawless, glowing skin that still super natural, doesn’t require lots of tools or wizardry to apply, and I can perfect in ten minutes or less. Is that too much to ask? Ha.
There was a time when I often found myself in a bit of a make-up rut, always relying on the same routine when I was headed out, always topping up the same products when they run out. But over the past couple years I’ve gotten better at branching out and trying new products – which usually ends in me discovering a new magical product that I apparently cannot live without. Enter Code8 – whose range I’ve only been using for the past few months – but their Beauty Balm has quickly become my everyday staple, and their bold fuchsia lippy is easily my favourite product in my makeup bag.
So here’s a quick run down of my current beauty routine, for either day or night, when I’m headed out and want to look natural, but still like I made an effort.
