My son wakes me up at roughly 6:30 AM and his nursery starts at 8, so that doesn’t give me much time to get ready. As of late, my go-to makeup routine has been simplified to take no more than 10 mins, excluding applying moisturizer, sunscreen and primer, which I do in between getting dressed to let the products sink in a ‘little’ bit. I must say, that’s quite the accomplishment for me!
I usually start with eye primer, even if I’m not wearing any eye shadow or liner. It helps even out my eyelids and prevents oiliness. Then comes concealer. I’m still a big fan of the Cle de Peau Beaute concealer, and I might layer it with a lighter liquid one for more coverage and brightening. I finish my eye makeup with a couple of mascara swipes on each eye.
For my face base, I have been heavily relying on powder foundation, loose ones to be exact. They give a flawless finish and are very appropriate for the Dubai daily grind, especially in this hot weather! My go to products are the Bellapierre Mineral Foundation and the Chanel Vitalumiere Loose Powder Foundation. They are both a dream to use and leave my face looking smooth and even, blurring out all imperfections. Then comes a quick dusting of bronzer and blush, and some lipstick. The one I’m wearing here is the Gucci Sensuous Deep Matte Lipstick in #230 Blossom, over the Makeup Forever Aqua Lip liner in 9C.
