I don’t think I’ve ever talked about makeup on Chronicled and it’s for good reason…I’m not a big makeup person.

Wait, that’s a lie. Kinda.

I buy make-up, when I’m in the mood I feverishly research products, I’ve been known to watch a youtube tutorial or two every now and then, and I certainly own, what I consider to be, a decent little collection (which is probably very small to most girls!). But, I’m not one of those girls who wear makeup every day or feels “naked” without it. Truth be told, most days I don’t wear any makeup at all – and I’m okay with that.

But, for the past few months I’ve been trying to do something in the makeup department; so I look like me but just a little more polished and sans the super dark under-eye circles which I’m blessed with.

GROOMED BROWS I’ve always preferred full, thick, brows, with a bit of an arch so I get mine threaded to maintain a natural shape and simply fill it in every so slightly with MAC’s Brow Pencil in Spiked. I’ve tried a few different brow pencils and always return to this one – the consistency is just perfect.

COVER THE DARK CIRCLES Thanks to really dark under eye circles I’m always on the hunt for a good concealer. And thanks to Sheryll I now swear by NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer in Amdande.

LASHES PLEASE One thing I’ve always been into is mascara. I love thick full lashes and am always on the hunt for a good mascara…and I don’t like spending much on it! Right now I’m using MAYBELLINE Volum’ Express The Rocket but I’m not particularly loyal to anyone brand and am always open to suggestions.

A BIT OF COLOUR Now that I’ve nailed my concealer (and foundation…on the rare occasions when I wear foundation) I noticed that when wearing it my skin looks even which is fantastic…but it can also look a bit…flat or one dimensional. Then I discovered blush and adding that little bit of colour onto my face makes all the difference. My everyday shade is MAC’s Raizin which is a maroon-y shade that is quite natural looking.

This is essentially my everyday look. That’s it. 4 products. It’s super simple and looks totally au natural. Truth be told, if you didn’t know me you probably wouldn’t think I was wearing any makeup at all. And while I sometimes swap out the blush colour, depending on my mood and what I’m wearing, and sometimes add lipstick if I’m in a particularly saucy mood – this is pretty much it.

Simple simple. Just the way I like it.

Do you find the rocket mascara difficult to remove? I feel like it leaves me with smudges, dark circles or flakes… But lashes look awesome when I’m wearing it.
