Makeup for Sick Days | The 'No Makeup' Makeup Look

Hello!!! I'm sure you all can relate to me with the fact that when you are sick you don't feel like doing your makeup. I've been home with a cold for the past few days and have definitely felt that way- and still do! But I still have to go to work so I had to make myself some what presentable LOL! Today I'm going to share a quick, easy, and minimal makeup look to do for when you feel like crap but still have to go somewhere!

This makeup is good for everyday wear too, for those of you who like a minimal and natural look! I however, am high maintenance and like to have a full face of makeup everyday so this is perfect for me on lazy or sick days! 

I basically just used foundation, concealer and powder to cover up my sicky pale skin and dark circles, a touch of blush and bronzer and Mascara! 
Covergirl Ultra Smooth Foundation, Mac Pro Longwear concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, benefit gimme brow, Nars Languna Bronzer, ModelCo Blush, and Maybelline Falsies Mascara!

I mentioned before that I didn't really care for this Covergirl Foundation. It's still not my favorite but the color matches my skin the best for a natural everyday look. I tend to get a shade darker usually do this works for days like today.  If anyone wants to see a full review on it, let me know!

  2. With heavy or light makeup, you still look beautiful! I feel that since I'm so used to doing heavy makeup, I feel really weird with super minimal makeup. Especially since "minimal" to me is everything I normally do except no eye makeup, lol.

    Bummer that you're sick, a ton of people at work are sick too :( Hope you feel better soon!
