You know those days where you can't imagine anything worse than getting out of bed & getting on with the day? For some reason, putting on some pretty makeup can give me that little push to fight that sluggish feeling and start my work. Is anyone else like that? I thought I'd round up some of my favourite makeup bits & pieces to wear to feel happy and productive.
I find peachy shades so flattering and they really remind me of summery days, so because the days are dark and dreary, peach is a great shade to opt for! I love MAC's Kinda Sexy and NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes for a sultry peachy lip. If you'd prefer something less matte, this lipstick from Makeup Revolution is a great option - and only £1!
There's nothing like a fancy eyeshadow palette to brighten your day! If you have some MAC shadows, play around with them, maybe with a sptriz of MAC Fix+ for the extra pigmentation that some of them lack. Urban Decay have great palettes, the esteemed Naked palette is a firm favourite of mine and I always feel great wearing it.
Adding some radiance & glow to your complexion can be a great way to feel better and ready for the day, as who doesn't like a bit of sheen? If you feel a bit under the weather, adding some glow to the tops of your cheekbones and brow bone can be all you need to fake a healthy radiance. My favourites are summed up in this post - including Sleek Precious Metals and TheBalm's Mary Lou.
